Election Return for Delegates from Albemarle County, 11 April 1782

Election Return for Delegates from Albemarle County

At an Election held for Albemarle County the xith day of April Anno Domini MDCCLXXXII, By the Freeholders of the said County I have Caused to be Chosen Two Burgesses To Wit Thomas Jefferson, and Thomas Walker, Esqrs. to Act as Burgesses for the said County as by Law is Required, given under my hand and seal the day and Year above Written.

James Quarles S. Al.

MS (Vi); endorsed: “Albemarle Return May 1782.”

James Quarles evidently came to Albemarle co. around 1776 from King William, and no doubt he had served as sheriff prior to the Revolution, as indicated in his use of the word “Burgesses” (Woods, Albemarle County, p. 299–300).
