General Petition Information

Abstract:Marie Beauregard, wife of Charles Barré, and Marie Therese Beauregard, both free women of color and the daughters of the late Antoine Conway, also a free person of color, pray the court for an account of the administration of their late father’s estate. They represent that, by his late will and testament, the late Conway instituted his two free daughters and a third daughter named Nannah, who is still a slave, as his heirs. Conway appointed John B. Mayorquin and Nicholas Mandeville as his daughters' tutor and the testamentary executors of his estate. Mayorquin and Mandeville took control of the estate and administered it “to a very large amount,” but “never rendered any account” of their administration. Marie and Marie Therese therefore pray that Mayorquin and Mandeville be cited to answer their suit and be required to render an account of their administration [A related petition reveals that Nicholas Mandeville and John B. Mayorquin were also free people of color].
