General Petition Information

Abstract:Nine Franklin County Justices of the Peace represent that John Webb, the "at present and acting Justice of the peace ... Stands charged with vices and crimes So immoral and unbecoming the Dignity of a Magistrate, that they cannot with a Suitable Degree of Respect for themselves and the office they hold continue to act in concert with him." They accuse Webb of "Seducing & Trading with Slaves prevailing with them to plunder their Masters and turning this to his own advantage." They therefore pray that the said Webb be prevented "from acting in his Said Capacity of Justice of the Peace until time is given for him either to acquit himself of this charge or that he may be convicted thereof."
