Moses Little Judicial Papers Collection

 


Courtesy of Windham Historical Society, P. O. Box 1475, Windham, ME 04062-1475
Moses Little was for many years, early to mid 1800’s, a Justice of the Peace in Windham. Several years ago some of his judicial papers were found in the attic of his Windham home and donated to the Windham Historical Society.

 


The majority of the papers are Writ of Summons and/or Attachment, some with the follow-up Execution(s) [of payment], called Exons. These Summons are for appearance before a Justice of the Peace [usually Moses Little] to settle the debt for which papers have been filed. Many of the Summons and/or Exon papers also contain the original signed promissory note, statement of account and/or other information pertaining to the debt. Other papers in the Moses Little Collection include a group of signed Recognition of Debt and signed Complaint and Arrest Warrants. On the reverse side of the Recognition of Debt may be found an explanation of payment or a date for which an Exon was issued when payment was not made on time.
