  • Additional Info: ​Lunenberg became a county on May 1, 1746. It was therefore entitled to representatives in the session of the Assembly that met July 11, 1746. On June 27 the governor issued an order for election of representatives to appear on July 11. The election was not actually held, however, until August 29th. When the members returned to take their seats at the March 1747 session they were not allowed to do so because the election had not been held when ordered. It appeared further that Mr. Embry was the sheriff of Brunswick County.
