1816.145: Petition seeking Relocation of Princess Anne County Court Sessions.

Published: 1816

Full Title: To the honorable Speaker and Members of the Senate and House of Delegates ... petition ... of the county of Princess Anne ...

Author: Citizens of Princess Anne County.

Place Issued: Norfolk

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 27 cm. x 40 cm. (broadside).


Petitioners request for relocating the county-court sessions from Kempsville was declined by the Assembly, apparently in the face of considerable opposition (1816.146). Sheet lacks colophon; only known copy, held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia, is dated in manuscript on December 9, 1816, the date it was received by the House; context clearly indicates a Norfolk origin; however, the multiple presses there make an attribution impracticable without further evidence, so the indeterminacy here.
