1816.146: Petition opposing Relocation of Princess Anne County Court Sessions.

Published: 1816

Full Title: To the honorable the Senate and House of Representatives ... petition ... citizens of Princess Anne county ...

Author: Citizens of Princess Anne County.

Place Issued: Norfolk

Issuing Press: Uncertain

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 25 cm. x 20 cm. (broadside).


Petitioners were successful in blocking the relocation of the county-court sessions from Kempsville, despite a coordinated effort to do so (1816.145). Sheet lacks colophon; only known copy, held in the state archives at the Library of Virginia, is dated in manuscript on December 11, 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.
