435 DOCUMENTARY HISTORY

OF THE

STATE OF MAINE

Petition of William Taylor.

To the Honble Senate & the honble House of Representatives

for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in General Court assembled

The Petition of William Taylor Esquire of Milton in the county of Suffolk | Humbly shews | That on the thirteenth day of November one thousand seven hundred and sixty seven, your Petitioner being indebted to Thomas Lane Esq' of London in the sum of one thousand nine hundred and twenty one pounds eleven Shillings, lawful money, he gave his bond for that sum upon interest, to said Lane, and as a collateral security for the payment thereof he gave his deed of mortgage of the following lotts of land, viz' a Lott of land called No. 18 lying in Pownalborough containing thirty two hundred acres, also two lotts of land call’d N° 11, & N° 68. both lying in Hallowell containing four hundred acres each, also one other lott of land marked N° 15 lying in Gardineston, containing five thousand acres —

That M' Lane sued out the said Bond and at the Sup' Court of Judicature held at Boston for the county of Suffolk in February 1772 recovered judgment thereon against your Petitioner for the sum of two thousand four hundred and fourteen pounds fifteen shillings lawful money. And Richard Lechmore esquire as agent & attorney to said Lane was very pressing upon your Petitioner for the money, but the times being then difficult it was out of his power to discharge the said Judgment, and he was oblidg'd in order to satisfy the said Lechmere, on the second day of June 1772, as a further security for sa debt to give his other mortgage to said Lane of three other tracts of land viz' a Lott of land marked A 1. lying in Winslow containing six thousand five hundred and eighty acres, Also of a Lott of land marked B E 1. containing seven thousand two hundred acres, and also of a lott of land marked C C 2. containing seven thousand two hundred acres, both lying higher up Kennebeck River (That the first mentioned thirty two hundred acre lott of land as your Petitioner then thought and still conceives was the full value of his said debt. Notwithstanding which your Petitioner to pacify Mr Lechmere & procure his further forbearance mortgaged all the other before mentioned tracts of land; But Mr. Lechemere not content therewith was so hard and cruel as to insist upon having some further security, whereupon to avoid an arrest the said Taylor made an additional mortgage to the said Lane of one twenty fourth part of all the undivided lands belonging to the proprietors of the Kenneck purchase being all his right therein.

The said William humbly begs leave to represent that a great part of the land above described is charg'd with the payment of taxes, and has in fact been sold at publick vendue by the collector for that purpose, the time of redemption is now almost expired, and unless some provision is made to recover the said estate a total loss thereof must ensue as well in regard to your petitioner as all others therein concern'd

He has no disposition to defraud his creditors and for three years past has been indefatigable in his endeavours to make such an adjustment as will give satisfaction to them and do justice to himself—the said lands could be sold for a sum far exceeding the debt, but in these circumstances it cannot be accomplished — Wherefore he prays that this Honble Court
