Proceedings of the Council of Maryland, 1748 / 9. 443

These Copys of affidavits will Inform you, that two Persons
in Possession of Lands two Miles to the Southward of the
Temporary Line held under this Government many years
before and in, and ever Since the year 1738, were about a
year ago forcibly turned out of their Possessions and one of
them Carried under Confinement into Nottingham And there
Compelled to Enter into a Bond for the Payment of Ten
Pounds Ten Shillings in Order to Procure his Releasment
and Prevent an Imprisonment in Chester Goal: This Outrage
appears to have been Comitted by one William Hay Sub
Sheriff of Chester County on behalf of Joseph England who
then set up a Claim to the Land And was also Present with
his Son Samuel England.
Joseph England is Lately dead and his son Samuel having
from a Sense of his mistaken Claim Applyed for his Lordships
Lease of all or such Part of those Lands as the Agent may
think Proper to give him, I need not trouble you about the
future Possession; But that unwarrantable behaviour of
William Hay as well as of Samuel England (who is an Inhabit-
ant of Chester County) so Plainly in disobedience to the 3d
Article of the two Proprietories Agreement Confirmed and
inforced by his Majestys Order of the 20th May 1738, Leaves

Lib. C. B.

me no Roome to doubt of your Assistance not only in dis-
couraging any future Violence of the Like kind but also for
bringing the Present offenders to Justice the next April Assize
Court of Cecil County of this Province where a Presentment
some time ago was made against them
I think myself Indispensibly Obliged to be the more Earn-
estly Pressing on this Point by his Majestys Order of the 18th
of August 1737. Injoyning the Governors of these two Prov-
inces upon pain of incurring his highest Displeasure not to
Permit or Suffer any Tumults Riots or Other Outragious dis-
orders to be Comitted on the Borders of their Respective
Provinces but that they do immediately put a Stop thereto and
Use their utmost Endeavours to Preserve Peace &c. This part
stands Confirmed by the Subsequent Order of 1738.
As a Strict Complyance with these Orders must be At-
tended with Peace to the people and a good understanding
Between Our Selves, you may be assured of every Endeavour
in my Power to Attain those Ends
I am Sir
Your Most Obt humble Servt
Sam: Ogle

At a Council held in the Council Chamber on Wednesday
the 22d Day of February in the 34th year of his Lordps
