General Petition Information

Abstract:John Weeks, guardian of Susannah, Dorothy and Henry Darnall, asks the court's permission to sell property belonging to his wards. He further asks that the court appoint appraisers to value the estate which formerly belonged to Francis Darnall and/or Richard Darnall. Weeks states that "the personal estate of his wards being Composed of negroes will be entirely useless when the sale of their land takes place" and therefore prays that the slave property also be sold.
