Petition #21385043


Daniel and William Ransom D. Flud seek a partition of the slaves in the trust estate of their mother, Mary Flud, who died in August 1849. The petitioners explain that Augustus Flud conveyed in trust to their mother fifteen slaves "together with the issue and increase of the females of them" on 26 February 1836. The slaves were intended for the "joint use and benefit" of Mary and her four younger children during "the time of her natural life," and were to be "immediately" divided among her children upon her death. The slaves now number twenty-four and are currently in the possession of Edward Flud. The petitioners pray that "the parts & shares of each of them in the said negroes may be settled and ascertained."
