"Warning Out"

Darrell A. Martin

A "warning out" was a legal formality, sort of like "irreconcilable
differences" in a current day's divorce court. The theory was that someone
had lately come into town and might become a burden on the town's resources
from poverty. They were therefore immediately run out of town. Well, that
was the theory. In practice, one of the town's constables showed up at the
person's or family's location (often a residence) and issued the formal
charge to be gone. The warning itself, regardless of whether the person or
family departed, served to absolve the town of any future responsibility,
and so whether the person warned out actually left made no difference. On
many occasions, perhaps even in the majority of cases, the person warned
out settled in town, bought property, and in all respects became a
productive member of the community.

It had nothing to do with the warned person's former activities or
financial standing. "
