General Petition Information

Abstract:William Wyatt asks the court for an injunction prohibiting George L. and Thomas W. Fauntleroy from collecting on his note. Wyatt states that in January 1833, Henry Ashton hired seven slaves from Thomas W. Fauntleroy. Upon delivering the slaves, Fauntleroy asked Ashton to give personal security for the hire. Not having funds available, Ashton went to Wyatt for a note to use as security in return for a lien on some timber. Fauntleroy considered the security put up by Wyatt insufficient and cancelled the whole transaction. Wyatt states that Fauntleroy is now holding him liable for the note he wrote as security for Ashton. Wyatt asks the court to verify that the transaction is null and void.
