Early American pre-Revolution document dated June 4th 1760 that is commanded from King George the second of Great Britain to the sheriff of Bedford County,Va. to collect payment through goods and chattels of George Stovall. George Stovell was born in 1695 some records indicate 1705 and died in 1786. He was a wealthy land and slave owner throughout his life and obtained the title Captain around the time of the Revolutionary war. There is a great deal of information on his life to be found on the net. The document is signed by court magistrate (judge) Benjamin Howard. Court records indicate Benjamin Howard died in 1772 and left a daughter, who married Thomas Anderson, and Howard left a very valuable estate. Anderson died in Buckingham County, in 1800 (British Mercantile Claims in Virginia, in the Virginia State Archives).
*Benjamin Howard wore many hats of occupation including judge, surveyor and clerk of courts.
King George died just a few months after this order on October 25th 1760. Document framed in handsome wood presentation plaque.
