General Petition Information

Abstract:William Brisbane joins his nine minor children in asking that proceeds from the "sale of a plantation belonging to these Petitioners" be paid to the mortgagees of their current plantation. He states that he invested the proceeds from the sale of White Cottage plantation "in certain bonds," which are held by a Mrs. Grimke and by the firm of Ingraham & Webb, "conditioned for the payment of four thousand and three thousand Dollars respectively and are secured by a mortgage of the Wilderness plantation now owned by these petitioners." He cites that "the entire property of the said Petitioners consists of a gang of about Eighty rice field slaves, which are and for several years past have been engaged in clearing and cultivating the said plantation." Noting that "said mortgagees are solicitous of being paid," he states that "the said plantation has now become of great value and is appreciating from year to year by improved and extended cultivation and is well adapted to the advantageous employment of the slaves belonging to your Petitioners." He therefore prays that the clerk and master "be ordered to pay over the funds in his hands and to assign the Bonds and mortgages of the purchaser of the White Cottage Plantation to the said mortgagees of the Wilderness Plantation."
