In the year 1708 the citizens of Anson, then including Montgom ery county, feeling themselves op-prcssed and imposed upon by th'j clerk of the court, the sheriff and magistrates, in exacting - and col lecting unlawful fees, and 'com mitting other unlawful acts, in tlie name of "Regulators,'' peti tioned Gov. Tryon setting forth their grievances, and asked him to recommend "bv the voice of tbe country such person as would judiciously discharge their sever al offices," and asserting "that no people have a riirht to he taxed but bv the consent of themselves or their delegates;" so, at that early day, the great principle was laid down, that "taxation ami representation should, always be associated." This petition shows that to Anson (including Montgomery) belongs the credit of having first advocated the . election of clerks, sheriffs and magistrates by the people. It was siimed by. unity- six times in the senate. an urbane, accomplished ucated gentleman, and the ancestor of the lies of that name on Mountain creeks in this county, created great excitedmeiit.
