Petition #20783910


The petitioners, Horace, Mary, and John Fletcher, state that they were infants when their father Thomas Fletcher died, leaving them three slaves. There were judgments against Fletcher's estate, and a certain Milly Scott purchased the slaves. When Milly died, the slaves passed into the possession of the defendants, the children of said Milly and the uncles of the petitioners. Asserting that the Scotts have had the slaves for several years, the petitioners ask the uncles "to account for the hire of said slaves, and the surrender of the slaves to your orators and payment of any ballance that may be due them after paying the purchase money and interest out of the hire."

Result: Partially granted.
