. See the judgments in SCJ Rec.
1773, fol. 92; id
. 1774, fols. 229–231. The actual damages enumerated in the declaration for the night
of 19 March 1766 total £1425 3s. 1 1/2d., of which all but £27 was in notes and other
obligations destroyed by the mob. The verdict may reflect the fact that King had been
able to collect some of the debts represented by the lost papers. He was the successful
party in numerous actions appearing in the Superior Court Minute Books for Cumberland
and Lincoln counties for the years 1766 through 1774. See also note
below. The execution which issued to King after his first victory in 1773 was returned
unsatisfied, and no execution in his favor issued after the decision in review in
1774. Execution against King issued in favor of Jonathan Andrews in Nov. 1774, but
it was returned unsatisfied in May 1775, King having died earlier in the year. SF
119636, 109174. In 1784, King's widow prevailed in two actions of debt on the judgments
recovered by her husband in July 1774. See SJC Rec.
1784, fols. 201–202; SF
139893, 139894. The files contain two executions returned in Nov. 1784 partially
satisfied in the amounts of £36 8s. 10d. and £17 9s. 2d. SF
119637, 119638. In June 1790 she recovered upon a note for £50 given to her husband
in Aug. 1773 by John, Joseph, Samuel, and Timothy Stewart, SJC Rec.
1790, fol. 140; SF
140140. This note, rather than Doc. XI
, may have been the basis of the Stewarts' default in July 1774. See notes
