      Aug. 1773 - Darby Lux vs. Basil Noe and John Noe, of Charles Co., planters, special bail of Bennett Noe. In Aug. 1772, Darby Lux recovered a judgment against Bennett Noe in the sum of 6/4/6 current money and 747 lbs. of tobacco for his costs and charges. Basil Noe and John Noe were security for Bennett Noe in this case. Bennett Noe did not pay the judgment to Lux and in Mar. 1773 Lux commenced an action against Basil Noe and John Noe to execute on the judgment against them. In June 1773, the Sheriff served notice of this proceeding on John Noe, before Zephanaiah Noe and Belain Posey, two good and lawful men of his bailywick. The language of the Sheriff's return concerning service on Basil Noe is not clear but it appears to say that Basil was not found (or at least, not served.)
      The case came on to be heard at the Aug. 1773 Court. John Noe offered no defense and the Court ordered that Darby have execution against both Basil and John for the 6/4/6 current money and 747 lbs. of tobacco, plus an additional 273 lbs. of tobacco for Darby's costs and charges in this proceeding.

The Sheriff was directed in Nov. 1773 to have Basil and John at the Mar. 1774 Court to satisfy Lux.
