      BENJAMIN HARRISON, of "Berkeley", is stated to have been born in 1726, and died April 24, 1791. . . . Here a detailed account of his public offices will be given. He was a member of the House of Burgesses for Charles City county from the session beginning April 10, 1749 to the last which began Jan. I, 1775, forty sessions in all. He represented his county in the Revolutionary Conventions of May, July and December, 1775, and was elected to that of May, 1776; but was represented by an alternate, he being in Congress, of which he was a member 1774-1778. On the organization of the state government he became a member of the House of Delegates for Charles City at the first session in October 1776, and continued to be a member of this body at the sessions of June 1777, Oct. 1777, Jan. 1778, May 1778, Oct. 1778, Oct. 1779, May 1780, Oct. 1780, March 1781 and May 1781. From 1778 to 1781 he was Speaker of the House. He was then elected Governor of Virginia and held that office Nov. 30, 1781-Nov. 30, 1784. At the first election after the expiration of his term as Governor he again offered as a candidate for the House from Charles City and was defeated . . . by John Tyler, Sr., who had for several sessions been a member for that county and Speaker of the House. The election in Surry was a little later and immediately after his defeat in Charles City, Col. Harrison moved over the river to the former county (where he owned land) again became a candidate for the House and was elected. When the Legislature met he was a candidate for the office of Speaker and defeated his rival, John Tyler, Sr., by a vote of 45 to 39. Of course the legality of his election to the House was contested, and on Nov. 2, 1785 "Mr. Braxton reported from the Committee of Privileges and Elections, that the committee had, according to order, inquired into the eligibility of Benjamin Harrison, Esq., one of the members returned to serve in this House for the county of Surry, and had agreed upon a report, and came to a resolution thereupon, which he read in his place, and afterwards delivered it at the clerk's table, where the same were again read, and are as followeth:

      It appears to your committee, from the information of the said Benjamin Harrison, that previous to the invasion of Arnold in this State, he was a resident of the county of Charles City, from whence he was compelled to remove himself and family to some place of safety; that the invasion of this State by Cornwallis soon after took place, by which means his house and furniture were so damaged, that he did not return thither until January last; that he was elected Chief Magistrate [Governor] in November 1781, and resigned that office on the 29th of November, 1784; that he was a candidate for, and elected a representative of the said county of Charles City on the 3oth of the same month; that he resided in the county of Charles City from January last to the 7th of April, the day after the election in the county of Charles City; for which he was a candidate; that on the 7th or 8th of April he carried his bed and some furniture to the county of Surry, wherein he engaged his rooms and board for twelve months; that he carried thither a servant and horses, leaving the rest of his family in Charles City, and entered the said servant and horses, with himself, among the taxables of the said county of Surry before the 10th of April; that they were not entered in the said county of Charles City, but would have been, had it been required of him before his removal to Surry, though no person to his knowledge was appointed in Charles City to take the list of taxables before his removal; that on the 6th of April, the day of the election in Charles City, at which he was a candidate, and after the poll was closed, he declared his resolution of removing immediately to the county of Surry, and thereupon wrote his resignation as a vestryman in the county of Charles City, which was accepted, and Mr. Turner Southall chosen in his stead; that he refused to accept the commission of county lieutenant of Charles City, previous to the election in Surry, and at the time of such refusal, informed the.Governor that he did not consider himself a resident of Charles City, nor would accept of any office, either civil or military therein; that the election in Surry was on the 4th Tuesday in April, being court day; that he is, and for many years has been a freeholder in the county of Surry; that he contributes to the support of a minister therein; that he has frequently, since his election in the said county of Surry, attended several public meetings to know the sentiments of his constituents; and that he was unanimously elected by the vestry of Surry, on the 15 of October last, to represent them in the convention of the clergy and laymen.

      Resolved that it is the opinion of this Committee, That the residence of the said Benjamin Harrison, in the county of Surry on the day of election, is not such as is required by the spirit and meaning of the Constitution, and therefore he was ineligible."

      The report and resolution were ordered to be referred to a committee of the whole immediately. There was evidently a long and warm debate, arid the House determined to take up the subject again in committee of the whole on the next day. On November 3rd the committee of the whole again sat and when it adjourned, and Mr. Speaker (Harrison himself) resumed the chair, Mr. Matthews, chairman of the committee, submitted exactly the same report brought in by the committee on Privileges and Elections, but brought in as the resolution of the committee of the whole.

      "Resolved, that it is the opinion of this committee, That the election of Benjamin Harrison, Esq., returned a member for the county of Surry, is legal."

      A recorded vote was called and those voting in the affirmative were : Thomas Parramore, Joshua Fry, Samuel Sherwin, Zachariah Johnston; Robert Clarke, Archibald Stuart, Thomas Claiborne, William Anderson, Hickerson Barksdale, John Daniel, Edmund Read, David Patteson, Bernard Markham, Edward Carrington, Carter Henry Harrison, French Strother, Henry Fry, William Watkins, Charles Sims, David Steward [Stewart], George Thompson, Elias Wills, Thomas Mann Randolph, Isaac Coles, Isaac Vanmiter [Vanmeter], Garland Anderson, John Mayo, Jr., John Rentfro, Thomas Moore, William Thornton, James Ball, Jr., Richard Bland Lee, William White, Thomas Johnson, Christopher Robertson, Samuel Garland, Benjamin Logan, Lewis Burwell, Thomas Pettus, John Gordon, David Bradford, James Madison, Charles Porter, William Harrison, Benjamin Lankford, William Ronald, William Mayo, Cuthbert Bullitt, George Lee Turberville, John Hopkins, Gawin Hamilton, Carter Bassett Harrison, Wilson Cary, Richard Lee, Henry Lee, Jr., Nathaniel Nelson and James Innes-57.

      Those in the negative : John Cropper, Wilson Nicholas, Joseph Eggleston, Samuel Jordan Cabell, Nicholas Bowyer, John Trigg, Thomas Edmunds of Brunswick, John Clarke, Charles Moil Talbot, Samuel Hawes, Anthony New, Henry Southall, Joseph Jones, Worlick Westwood, William Gatewood, Meriwether Smith, Thomas Helm, Thomas Smith, Thomas Underwood, John Lucas, Edmund Wilkins, Parke Goodall, Nathaniel Wilkinson, John Dellaid, William Norvell, William Walker, William Dudley, Carter Braxton, Benjamin Temple, William Curtis, William Pettijohn, David Scott, William Armistead, Willis Wilson, Griffin Stith, John, Taylor, Thomas Ridley, John Whitaker Willis, John Clarke, Richard Bibb, Edward Bland, Edmund Ruffin Jr., Williamson Ball, Andrew Moore, William Garrard, Thomas Edmunds of Sussex, John Howell Briggs and Joseph Prentis-49.

      Benjamin Harrison soon returned to Charles City and was a delegate for that county at the sessions of Oct. 1787, June 1788, Oct. 1788, Oct. 1789 and Oct. 1790. He was elected a member of the next House but died before the session began. He was also a member of the Virginia Constitutional Convention of 1788.

      Hugh Blair Grisby whose sources of information for his Virginia Convention of 1788 were not only published histories and biographies but the personal information of survivors from the period of which he wrote, has this to say of Benjamin Harrison. Patrick Henry (the leader of the opposition to the adoption of the Federal Constitution) and the existing Virginia Constitution had been attacked by Federalist members, especially by John Marshall, for an act passed in 1777 attainting and outlawing Joseph Phillips, a negro who was leader of a band of thieves and murderers.

      "As soon as Marshall had resumed his seat, and while the members were exchanging opinions respecting the relative merits of the two young men who had just appeared for the first time on the floor, there arose a large and venerable old man, elegantly arrayed in a suit of blue and buff, a long queue tied with a black ribbon dangling from his full locks of snow, and his long, black boots encroaching on his knees, who proceeded, evidently under high excitement, to address the House.

      He had been so long a member of the public councils that even Wythe and Pendleton could not easily recall the time when he had not been a member of the House of Burgesses. His ancestors had landed in the Colony before the first House of Burgesses had assembled in the church on the banks of the James, and had invoked in the presence of Governor Yeardley the blessing of heaven on the great enterprise of founding an Anglo-Saxon colony on the continent of America. One of his ancestors had been governor of Somer's Islands, when those islands were a part of Virginia. [an error] Others had been members and presidents of the Council of Virginia from the beginning of the seventeenth century to that memorable day in August, 1774, when the first Virginia Convention met in Williamsburg, and appointed the first delegation to the American Congress. Of that delegation, whose names are familiar to our school boys, and will be more familiar to the youth of future generations, this venerable man had been a member, had hastened to Philadelphia, and had declared to John Adams that, if there had been no other means of reaching the city, he would have taken up his bed and walked. But this was not his first engagement in the public service. Educated at William and Mary, when that institution was under the guardianship of Commissary Blair, he entered at an early age the House of Burgesses, and in the session of 1764 was a member of the committee which drafted the memorials to the king, the lords, and the commons of Great Britain against the passage of the Stamp Act. During the following session of the House of Burgesses, in 1765, he opposed the resolutions of Henry, not from any want of a cordial appreciation of the doctrines asserted by them, but on the ground that the House had not received an answer to the memorials which he had assisted in drawing the year before, which were daily expected to arrive. In th patriotic associations of those times his name was always among the first on the roll. He was a member of all the Conventions until the inauguration of the Commonwealth, and in the first House of Delegates gave a hearty co-operation in accommodating the ancient polity of the Colony to the requisitions of a republican system. But his most arduous services were rendered in Congress, and as a representative of Virginia in that body he signed the Declaration of American Independence. While in Congress he had presided on the most important committees, especially on those relating to military affairs, and on the Committee of the Whole during the animated discussions on the formation of the Articles of Confederation, and had been repeatedly deputed by Congress on various missions at critical periods to the army and to the States. On his return home he had been regularly a member of the House of Delegates, of which he was almost invariably the Speaker while he had a seat in the Assembly. He was in the chair of the House when, in 1777, the bill attainting Phillips had been passed, and he knew that the bill had been drawn by Jefferson, his old colleague in the House of Burgesses, in the Conventions, and in Congress, in whose judgment and patriotism he had unlimited confidence. He remembered what a dark cloud was resting on his country when the miscreant Phillips with his band was plundering and murdering the wives and daughters of the patriotic citizens of Norfolk and Princess Anne, who were engaged elsewhere in defending the Commonwealth, attacking them in the dead of night, burning their habitations, perpetrating vilest outrages, and then retreating at daybreak into the recesses of the swamp; and that all the Assembly had done under such provocation was to provide that, if the wretch did not appear within a certain time and be tried by the laws of the Commonwealth for the crimes with which he was charged, he should be deemed an outlaw; and he felt indignant that such a patriotic measure, designed to protect the lives and property of the people, should be wrested from its true meaning by the quibbles of attorneys, and receive such severe condemnation. Before he took his seat he declared his opposition to the Constitution, little dreaming that the half-grown boy whom he had left at Berkeley blazing away at cat-birds in the cherry trees, or angling from a canoe for perch in the river that flowed by his farm, would one day wield the powers of that executive which he now pronounced so kingly.

      When Benjamin Harrison had pronounced the accusation of the General Assembly in respect to Josiah Phillips, unjust, he declared that it had been uniformly lenient and moderate in its measures, and that, as the debates would probably be published, he thought it very unwarrantable in gentlemen to utter expressions here which might induce the world at large to believe that the Assembly of Virginia had perpetrated murder. He reviewed in a succinct manner the proposed plan of government, declared that it would infringe the rights and liberties pf the people; that he was amazed that facts should be so distorted with a view of effecting the adoption of the Constitution, and that he trusted they would not ratify it as it then stood. This aged patriot did not engage in debate during the subsequent proceedings of the Convention. He felt that his time of departure was near, and in less than three years after the adjournment of the Convention, at Berkeley his patrimonial seat on the James, he was gathered to his fathers."

      We have been unable to ascertain the date of Mr. Harrison's birth. Of that of his marriage too we are ignorant, although it was at an early age. His wife's name was Elizabeth Bassett; she was the daughter of colonel William Bassett, of Eltham, in the county of New Kent, and a niece of a sister of Mrs. Washington. In her youth she was considered extremely beautiful; and those who yet live to remember her, speak of her in later years, as a woman of great piety, benevolence and goodness. She only survived her husband a single year.

      Mr. Harrison inherited a very large fortune from his father, and twice succeeded to considerable property under the old English law of primogeniture, It was, however, somewhat impaired, by disastrous times and imprudent speculations. Before the revolution, and indeed in sothe instances, subsequently, the Virginia gentlemen were their own merchants, exporting themselves the produce of their estates. In this system Mr. Harrison largely engaged; he not only erected extensive merchant mills, but established a large shipyard and built his own vessels. In all this, as might be supposed, he was very unsuccessful; and believing that his misfortunes preceded from a want of mercantile skill, he determined that his eldest son should have such
      an education, as might retrieve the fortunes of his family, and he placed him in the counting-house of his friends Willing and Morris.

      Mr. Harrison had many children, but seven only survived their birth or very early infancy. Three of these were sons and four daughters; the latter of whom married into respectable and wealthy families of Virginia. Benjamin, the eldest son, was, as we have mentioned, sent when young to Philadelphia, and there obtained an excellent mercantile education. After he had completed that he visited Europe, and formed extensive commercial connections. During the Revolutionary war he was paymaster general of the southern department. When peace was restored, he established himself as a merchant in Richmond, and there acquired a large fortune. This he afterward impaired by an act of honourable generosity; as soon as he heard of the distresses of his early friend, Mr. Morris, he came froward immediately to his support, and sacrificed in his behalf the greater part of his fortune he had acquired. He was twice married, and died of apoplexy in 1799, leaving an only son, the present Benjamin Harrison of Berkeley. The second son Carter Basset Harrison, after receiving a classical education at the college of William and Mary, was bred to the law. He was not a mein of brilliant talents, but he was a good lawyer, a fluent speaker, and a very upright man. In public life he was very popular, and served many years in the legislature, in congress, and as a presidential elector. He died in 1804, leaving two sons. The third son, William Henry Harrison, was educated at Hampden-Sidney College in Virginia, and was intended for the medical profession; this, however, he soon abandoned for a ensigncy in the army, and marched to the new country of the west. He distinguished himself, while yet young, in the battle with the Indians at the rapids of Miami; was afterwards raised to the office of governor of the Indiana territory, which he filled with singular merit; and in the late war, by his perfect knowledge of the western country, his acquaintance with military tactics, and above all the confidence and respect which he universally inspired, was at an early period raised to a high military post on the northwest frontier, ard became one of the most popular and successful commanders the republic had employed. On the return of peace, he received from his applauding countrymen the fair reward of his exertions, in being elected to several high political stations by the people of Ohio; and, as a representative of that state in congress, he still maintains in honour and respect the name of Harrison.

      We are indebted to another descendant, Mrs. Paul W. Howle, of Richmond, for the following copies of Benjamin Harrison's will and inventory obtained from the records of Charles City county.

      "Heads of a Will written by me, Benjamin of Berkley, all in my own hand, being in perfect sense, health and memory, and intended to be carried into due form by my friend Peter Lyons, esq. but if any accident should happen to deprive me of life before this is done it is my desire that it be taken for my last Will and Testament written and signed this third day of January One Thousand seven hundred and eighty.

      I give to my dear and affectionate Wife Elizabeth Harrison to her and her heirs forever, all my furniture except my plate, which she is to have the use of during her life.

      I also give her my Coach and harness, and six of the horses belonging to it to be chosen by her to her and her heirs forever.

      I also give to my dear Wife the use of all my tract of land whereon I now live called Berkley, with all the Slaves thereon, or belonging thereto, as well Tradesmen as others with all the stocks of horses, mules, cattle, sheep and hogs during her life, except such as I shall hereafter specially give away, out of which she is to pay my just debts and to support and maintain my Son William and my daughter Sarah; the better to enable her to do which I give her my part of the Ship now on the Stocks, and all the money that may be due from the other partners, which I hope she will apply immediately in the discharge of such debts as I shall leave unpaid, and to assist in any manner she shall think fit my Son Carter in building or buying a house at Cabin Point, and I recommend it to her to sell two of the three shares I have reserved for myself in the said Ship and to keep the other to import necessaries for herself and family.

      There is a debt due to the estate of William Lightfoot deceased, from my father's estate, which I desire may be paid, not that I think I am indebted to the estate, for I solemnly declare that I think I have paid abundantly more than ever came to my hands, yet I direct the debt to be paid to prevent clamour and disputes.

      At the death of my wife I give my tract of land called Berkley, except such part of it as I shall give my son William, to my son Benjamin to him and his heirs forever, but it is my will and desire that if my son Benjamin die without a male heir, that then my said tract of land as aforesaid go in remainder or reversion to my son Carter Bassett Harrison to him and his heirs forever.

      I give my son Carter B. Harrison my tract of land at Cabin Point, my mill and miller Oscar, and the land I have on both sides Savages run, my lots in or near the Town of Richmond and those drawn in Col. Byrds lottery in partnership with Col. Nathaniel Harrison to him and his heirs forever.

      I give to my son William Henry Harrison at the death of his mother, or on his coming of age, the upper part of my Berkley tract of land to him and his heirs forever; that is to say, beginning on my West line near the stump of a pine tree fronting the house that James Hardy- man lives in, from which a mast was cut for the large Ship, running from thence a strait due East course till it strikes my East line, but if my said son William should die before he comes of age or has a son, or should after he comes of age die and leave no son, in either of these cases it is my will and desire that the said tract or parcel of land go and descend in remainder or reversion to my son Carter B. Harrison to him and his heirs forever.

      I give unto my son Benjamin and his heirs forever all the negroes he has of mine in his possession at Hard Labor, except George the son of Frankey. I also confirm to him his right to Emanuel, and give him ship carpenter Tom and his wife Judy, and her children, and Tabb the wife of Emanuel.

      I give to my son Carter B. Harrison old Will and his wife Betty, and all her children, Sally daughter of Sarah and her two sons Coye and George Snow; old Coye and his wife Betty, York the son of old Will, Fidler, Baker, Dick and Anthony to him and his heirs forever. I also give him forty ewes and a ram, and direct that thirty head of cattle and three good work horses be bought for him, and I give him my Phaeton and harness and mw two colts rising two years old, and at the death of his mother I give him all my Plate, and at the death of his Aunt Stith, I give him the negro I lent her and all her increase, except two of them, which I shall hereafter give away, to him and his heirs forever.

      I give to my son and his heirs forever at the death of his mother or his coming of age al the negroes with their increase which I now have at my plantation called Oldhides; and Carpenter Tom the husband of Moll, and Critty's son Charles; I also give my said son at the time aforesaid all the stock of cattle, horses and hogs at the said plantation and forty ewes and a ram from Berkley.

      I give to my daughter Elizabeth Rickman and her heirs forever Moll, Stoker and her daughter Polly and her granddaughter Betty and their increase, and Moses alias Swallon, George the son of Frank now at hard labour and stable Bob now a plowman.

      I give to my daughter Anna Coupland and her heirs forever her maids Molly and Sally and their children and future increase, Critty's children Phobe and Tom and Agg's daughter Arry. I also desire that my Chariot may be fitted up in the best manner and four new harness bought and delivered to her.

      I give my daughter Lucy Randolph and her heirs forever her maid Patty and her increase.

      I give my granddaughter Betty Randolph a girl nearly of her own age to be chosen by my wife.

      I give to my grandson William Randolph, Critty's son Dick, and to the child not yet named a negro boy about his age to be chosen by my wife to them and their heirs forever.

      I give to my daughter Sarah Harrison and her heirs forever, Sarah the daughter of Jenny, Molly the daughter of Tabb and Suckey the daughter of Diddy with their increase, and it is my will and desire that my son Benjamin at the death of his mother, he being so much better provided for than my other children, pay to my said daughter Sarah Two hundred and twenty Half Johannes in gold, but if my said daughter should not then be of age or married that he retain the said sum in his hands, till one of those events takes place, paying an annual interest of five per centum in the same coin towards the support of my said daughter.

      At the death of my dear wife I give all my stocks of horses, mules, cattle, sheep and hogs on my plantation of Berkley not before given away, to my son Benjamin and his heirs forever, and if at the time aforesaid my sons Benjamin and Carter should be living, I give all the negroes possessed by my said wife and not before disposed of to be equally divided between them, but if either of them should die before that time leaving no son, I give them to the survivor to him or them or his or their heirs forever. But if these negroes should all fall by survivorship to either of my said sons, my will is that he pay to each of my four daughters their heirs or assigns the sum of Two hundred pounds in gold or silver, and moreover, that he deliver to my son William two boys and two girls healthy and sound of between twelve and fourteen years of age.

      I give to my Niece Ann Bassett to her and her heirs forever at the death of her Aunt Stith her choice of the negro children which the woman now has that I lent her; and I give to my nephew Carter Bassett the next choice of the said children-and whereas I omitted to give my dear wife the tools of my carpenters and the plantation tools, waggons and carts, I hereby declare it as my will that she should possess the whole of them with the millstones and every article belonging to my mills, my share in the Salt pans in Gloster and the great pot I have there for the purpose of making salt.

      Benjamin Harrison, (Seal)
      January the eighth, 1780.

      On consideration of the above bequeaths to my four daughters, I am lead to think I have not done them that justice that is due to such affectionate children, it is therefore my will that at the death of my wife the negroes she has in possession at the time of her death be laid off into four equal parts as possible without parting men and their wives, that three of the said four parts be equally divided between my said sons Benjamin and Carter and that the other fourth part be equally divided betwixt my four daughters over and above what I have before given them. This bequeath is not to alter except as to the fourth part of the slaves given to my daughters, the bequeath in my will of the slaves to my sons or the survivor of them.

      Benjamin Harrison.
