CASES DECIDED

IN THE

HIGH COURT OF CHANCERY


OF MARYLAND.

CRAPSTER v. GRIFFITH

AN infant female between sixteen and twenty-one years of age, is competent to
give a valid receipt for her property, but not an acknowledgment for the payment
of an equivalent. The auditor may be ordered to proceed immediately to the
adjustment of an account—a settlement in the Orphans Court by a guardian is
not conclusive; but when relied on by him here, he should produce the vouchers
on which it was founded. A parly may be arrested under an attachment any
where, out of, as well as in the county of his residence. A plaintiff, after a
decree in his favour for the delivery of certain negroes, may, by a new bill,
recover their increase and profits subsequent to the auditor's report, and not
included in that decree. A decree of the Court of Appeals, sent to the Court of
Chancery to be executed, cannot be there revised or modified in any material
particular. Personal property, of which a partition cannot be made, may be sold,
and the proceeds of sale divided.

THIS bill was filed on the 20th of September, 1809, by Bazil
Crapster and Harriet his wife, against Lyde Griffith—It states,
that Vachel Dorsey died in the year 1795, leaving a widow Ann,
and two children John H. Dorsey, and the plaintiff Harriet; that
the intestate died seized and possessed of a considerable real and
personal estate; that letters of administration, on his personal
estate, were granted to his widow and Luke Pool, but that all the
assets, and the actual conduct of the administration, passed into
the hands, and was performed by the widow; that, some time
early in the year 1798, she married the defendant, after which, on
the 25th of April in the same year, they settled a final account
with the Orphans Court, shewing a balance of .£503 11s. 3 1/4d. due
to the estate; that John H. Dorsey, the son of the intestate, died
some time in the year 1798, under age and intestate; after which
Luke Pool died, leaving the then wife of the defendant as the sur-
viving administratrix, that the defendant, soon after his marriage
