      Mar. 1699 - At the Mar. 1699 Prince George's Co., Md. Court, true bills were found against Benjamin Stephens, Solomon Stimpson, Peter Scamper, Thomas Wells and John Robinson for being drunk and fighting against the Good laws of God and this Province." All except Stimpson submitted to the court, received fines of 100 pounds of tobacco and were cleared by proclamation. Stimpson, when asked how he pleaded, declared he would fight again if he had like occasion; he was then put in the stocks for 3 hours and required to give security for his good behavior and appearance at the next court. At the June Court he was cleared by proclamation, nobody appearing against him. All of these indictments apparently arose from the same disturbance, a riot in Charles Town on Mar. 28, 1699.
