The couple had no children in their 30 year marriage. Peyton was chosen as a House of Burgesses representative for Williamsburg in The case was appealed by Davis before the Attorney General in England. Peyton's reputation would soar again after he challenged the newly appointed Virginia Governor Dinwiddie decision to charge a Pistole, a Spanish coin worth about 20 shillings, each time the governor certified a land patent with his signature.
To insure the support of the Attorney General, Governor Dinwiddie called, with his entire family, on Randolphs at their Williamsburg home in the spring of As his guest, Dinwiddie turned what Randolph thought was a social visit to business explaining his rationale for instituting a new "Pistole Fee" tax.
The Governor during that gathering insisted the Attorney General support his efforts. Randolph, respectfully, counseled the Governor that the Virginia House of Burgess must first debate and vote on the measure before the tax could be imposed upon the colonist. The Governor unilaterally instituted the "Pistole Fee" on every land-patent executed in Virginia without the approval of the Virginia House of Burgess the following week.
In Randolph was commissioned by the Virginia House of the Burgesses to appeal the unconstitutionality of the "Pistole Fee" exaction by Governor Dinwiddie to the English ministry in London. The result of his pleading ended with the "Pistole Fee" being removed from all land transfers under one hundred acres but remained for the larger parcels.
He was infuriated that his Attorney General left the Virginia Colony without his consent on a mission authorized only by the Virginia House of the Burgesses. The Governor believed the act to be hostile to the execution of the King's Law. Consequently, when a petition of the Burgesses arrived requesting from the Governor that the office of Attorney General should remain open until Randolph's return, Dinwiddie utilized this occasion to rebuke Randolph.
The Governor appointed George Wythe who only accepted the office until Randolph's return from England.
The Governor wrote this of Randolph on October 23, still defiant: However, if he answers properly w't I have to say to him, I am not inflexible; and he must confess, before this happened he had greater share of my Favs, and Counten'ce than any other in the Gov't.
There was also a compromise on the final compensation with the new Virginia House of the Burgesses as the money owed to Randolph was never paid due to the defeat Major General Edward Braddock on the banks of the Monongahela River near present day Pittsburgh.
Nine hundred French, Canadians and Native Americans attacked the advance British unit which, after a brief defense, retreated back into Braddock's main Army that was rushing to the Colonel's aide. Crammed on a narrow valley road along the river the two British forces clashed and fell into disorder as the French Canadian militiamen and Native Americans took lofty positions behind trees and rocks firing into the valley.
At the same time the French regulars charged the British head-on. The narrow valley pinned Braddock and he was unable to expand the battle line to take advantage of his significantly greater numbers. Bewildered, the British Regulars began firing upon their allies believing them to be Canadian or Native Americans.
We continued our March from Fort Cumberland to Frazier's which is within 7 Miles of Duquisne with't meet'g with any extraordinary event, hav'g only a stragler or two picked up by the French Indians.
When we came to this place, we were attack'd very unexpectedly I must own by abt. The Officer's in gen'l behav'd with incomparable bravery, for which they greatly suffer'd, there being near 60 kill'd and wound'd.
A large proportion, out of the number we had! The Virginian Companies behav'd like Men and died like Soldiers; for I believe out of the 3 Companys that were there that day, scarce 30 were left alive: Peyrouny and all his Officer's, down to a Corporal, were kill'd; Captn.
Polson shar'd almost as hard a Fate, for only one of his Escap'd: In short the dastardly behaviour of the English Soldier's expos'd all those who were inclin'd to do their duty to almost certain Death; and at length, in despight of every effort to the contrary, broke and run as Sheep before the Hounds, leav'g the Artillery, Ammunition, Provisions, and, every individual thing we had with us a prey to the Enemy; and when we endeavour'd to rally them in hopes of regaining our invaluable loss, it was with as much success as if we had attempted to have stop'd the wild Bears of the Mountains.
Burton and Sir Jno. Clair are also wounded, and I hope will get over it; Sir Peter Halket, with many other brave Officers were kill'd in the Field. I luckily escap'd with't a wound tho' I had four Bullets through my Coat and two Horses shot under me.
It is suppose that we left or more dead in the Field; about that number we brought of wounded; and it is imagin'd I believe with great justice too that two thirds of both [?
Of the men led by Braddock were killed and wounded. Additionally, of the 47 women that accompanied the British column as maids and cooks, only 4 survived. The losses of French Regulars and Canadian Minuteman were 8 killed and 4 wounded.
The Native American Allies numbering nearly lossed 15 and 12 were wounded. Washington and the retreating British Army came upon Colonel Dunbar, who was in command of the rear supply unit Dunbar being the ranking British Officer took command of the beleaguered Army.
Instead of reorganizing the troops and setting up a defense line to protect the supplies as Washington recommended, Dunbar ordered a hasty retreat burning about wagons and a cannon before withdrawing.OBAMA’S MAIN ‘PUPPETEER’ IS THE HUNGARIAN BORN JEW - GEORGE SOROS.
