Anecdote*18 February 1695/96 On 18 Feb 1695/96 in Accomack Court a warrant was issued by Col. Charles Scarburgh at the complaint of Mr. Robert Pitt, who accused Elizabeth Morris of taking Sterling Newton (son of Joseph Newton, deceased) out of the possession of Pitt. At the last court the boy was ordered to remain with Pitt till this court determined how the "child should be disposed of." In the absence of a constable, Mr. John Custis of Pocomk. was empowered to execute the warrant for the return of the child. At Elizabeth's house he demanded the child, but Elizabeth refused to give up Sterling. It appeared that Elizabeth had committed contempt, so the court ordered that the sheriff take her into custody till she gave security for her good behavior and payment of court charges.1

At the last court the boy was ordered to remain with Pitt till this court determined how the "child should be disposed of." In the absence of a constable, Mr. John Custis of Pocomk. was empowered to execute the warrant for the return of the child. At Elizabeth's house he demanded the child, but Elizabeth refused to give up Sterling.

He had also detained one of the girls, who "was arrived to woman's estates being above sixteen years of age and (Benston had) kept her in very hard servitude." Elizabeth asked that the orphan receive her liberty and her portion of her father's estate. Benston now appeared and alleged that the girl was not yet sixteen and that she was treated well. However, since Elizabeth claimed otherwise, and since Benston "would not permit or suffer ye aforesaid orphan to make her complaint to ye court by detaining her at home," the court ordered that the girl have notice to come to court if she had cause for complaint. The court would "give her such redress therein as shall be agreeable to right and justice."1
