1. Dulany was discharged on September 24, 1765, for accepting the office of naval officer of the Patuxent after his election. He was reelected, and returned November 1, 1765. The Annapolis voters, however, protested his election. They claimed that in addition to other improper procedures during the election, Dulany, who was mayor of Annapolis, "continued. . . on the Bench during the Time of the Election and. . . did Object to the Qualifications of some of the Voters who offered to vote against him." On November 12 the House declared that Dulany had been unduly elected.
