Petition #11681103


Following the death of their father, James and Thomas Spencer, slaveholders in North Carolina, inherited a "very considerable Landed & personal Estate" in Amherst and Nelson counties. They ask to bring seventeen slaves into Virginia. The slaves are loyal, faithful, and attached to the Spencer family, and purchasing new hands would involve great risk, "trouble & expence."

Result: Rejected.
