General Petition Information

Abstract:As a minor, Isaac Giles moved from Maryland to Delaware in 1817 and learned the trade of blacksmithing as an apprentice. He states that he owns the slave Arthur, now residing with Giles's guardian in Maryland. The petitioner notes that he tried to bring his slave into Delaware but was denied legislative permission because he was a minor. Now an adult, he again seeks exemption from a Delaware law designed to prevent the importation and exportation of slaves and asks permission to bring Arthur into Delaware.
