1. After the death of Governor Samuel Ogle on May 3, 1752, Tasker, the President of the Upper House, assumed the duties of acting governor until the arrival of Horatio Sharpe on August 10, 1753.
2. The election of Steuart, the delegate chosen to replace the deceased Robert Gordon, was declared invalid on October 19, 1753. The petitioner, Alexander Hamilton, was declared the duly elected delegate for Annapolis and took his seat the same day.
3. The election for the Baltimore County delegation was declared void on December, 12, 1751, because of illegal actions of the sheriff in conducting it. The four men originally chosen were returned and took their seats at the beginning of the second session.
4. William Rasin and Abraham Falconar were discharged from the Lower House on December 11, 1751, Rasin for being an inspector within two years of his election, and Falconar for being an ordinary keeper at the time of his election. A new election was called, at which time Rasin was returned and Falconar was replaced by Richard Gresham. Falconar, however, was reelected later in the second session to replace the deceased John Gresham.
