1. After the death of Benjamin Tasker, Hammond assumed the senior position, but is not referred to as president in the proceedings.
2. Tilghman was chosen speaker at the beginning of the third session to fill the vacancy caused by Lloyd's death. He continued as speaker through the fourth session except for a period of three days (November 9-11) when illness forced him to withdraw. Worthington served as speaker during Tilghman's absence.
3. Originally elected a delegate to the Lower House, he was appointed to the Council on September 24, 1770.
4. The original election of delegates from Baltimore County was declared void on June 14, 1768, after complaints of "treating" and other irregularities were brought by John Hammond Dorsey, Charles Ridgely, Jr., and others. A second election was held on July 5, 1768. Three members of the original delegation were returned, with only Thomas Cockey Deye being unseated and George Risteau selected in his place. However, on November 18, 1769, a petition from sundry Baltimore inhabitants complaining of misconduct by the sheriff was presented to the Lower House at Deye's request. Consequently, on November 30, this election was also voided. Although Robert Adair had died one month before the beginning of the second session, no notice of his death had been given by the Lower House, and his election was voided with the others by this action. The third election returned Deye to his seat, along with John Paca, Aquila Hall, and John Matthews.
5. Hanson was discharged on November 25, 1769, after accepting the office of deputy surveyor of Frederick County.
6. Thomas Jennings was discharged on November 17, 1769, after accepting the office of attorney general.
