1787, Maryland, Arrest Warrant Pair, Patriot William Ritchie, Stamp Act, Signed For Sale
This is a wonderful, original pair of documents, dated 1787 and 1801, arrest warrants for debt collections in the Maryland Courts....each is boldly signed at lower right by William Ritchie whose home was built in 1750 and believed to be the first Court House and site of the repudiation of the Stamp Act of 1765.Document is approximately 4" by 8" in size, with outer edges frayed, age toned.
(From a newspaper clipping found at the Frederick Historic Society)
"The little one story and attic house shown above, which stood on Record Street, was once the home of William Ritchie, clerk of the Frederick County Court from 1779 until 1815. With its plastered walls and yellow-washed exterior, it was not a very imposing dwelling. However, according to one version, accepted by some of the best local authorities, the "twelve immortal" judges met and repudiated the Stamp Act on November 18, 1765, in this building, rather than in the Courthouse. It is impossible to prove beyond a doubt that the judges met and signed the document here, but it cannot be disputed that the recording of the act took place in this old structure."
