September 1674

[Sept. ?] 1,114. Petition of Thomas Delavall, merchant, late of New York, to the King. My estate was confiscated and myself made prisoner when New York was captured by the Dutch, and a large quantity of valuable goods seized from my warehouse and shipped to Holland. On her way thither the vessel was driven by stress of weather into the port of Plymouth in New England, where she was claimed by my son-in-law. The matter came before the Courts, which ordered the ship to sail for England to be tried in the Admiralty Courts there; but I since hear that most of the goods have been disposed of. I beg your order to the inhabitants of Boston that this my property may be restored to me. 1 p. [Colonial Papers, Vol. LXV., No. 11.]
