John Harvie, Attorney: Accounts from 1768 - 1772

In Bedford County Judgments, Box 32, for the year 1772, I found five court cases in which John Harvie sued different clients for payment for the legal services which Harvie had provided.

These account statements demonstrate the breath of services he provided. For example, he advised Isaac & William Bannister on “the last Will & Testament of Bannister deceased”; “advised the Widow Bannister Chancery”; represented them “opposing an attachment in Chancery made by Richard Callaway”; “defending you against a complaint of Negroe sold by your father to Colonel Callaway”, “a Writ versus Major William Mead”; etc. “Total £ 6 , 3 & 9 ”

As you may read and view below, more services were provided for a Mr. James Turman, Mr. John Purrin, Mr. Charles Moorman Jun., and Misters Thomas and Amos Thorp.
