1. The Lower House, following receipt of objections from residents of Annapolis about the city's charter issued by Governor Seymour, ruled that the charter was invalid and thus rendered void the election of representatives from the city.
2. Originally elected over John Carvile, Wallis's status as a freeholder in the county was successfully challenged, and he declined to swear that he possessed personal property worth £40 sterling. Carvile was then elected in Wallis's place by general consent.
3. The former councilor was in Virginia and did not attend this Assembly.
4. All four delegates from St. Mary's County were denied seats and their elections voided because the sheriff had not properly proclaimed the time and place of the election. Also, St. Mary's City ceased having representation in the Lower House with this Assembly. The writ of election was returned with the statement that no one was present in the town to hold an election.
