carrying into execution and fully completing the intentions of the said acts, who
shall meet at the said town of Charles-town, commonly called Port-Tobacco,

within the said town;

of the said orphans court, in the same manner as is directed with respect to fines
and penalties imposed by the act above mentioned.
