The bulk of this collection consists of estate papers for the Williams family of Bertie and Martin counties, and documents the financial management of their estates, and Patrick Winston's legal efforts on their behalf. The remaining papers are chiefly financial and legal items of Patrick Winston. The papers document the management of the estates of H.S., Samuel, Joseph J., and John P. Williams; Winston's legal efforts in a case against John Williams's estate; slave sales in several North Carolina counties; medical care given slaves; the cotton market, especially the Civil War's effect on it; and the postwar legal and financial difficulties of planters. Financial and legal items include slave bills of sale; deeds and surveys for Bertie, and Franklin County lands; loan notes; affidavits; a warrant; and a court petition. Of note is a volume, 1850-1853, containing the constitution, by-laws, and minutes of the Bertie Lyceum. There are also two letters addressed to Winston's sons, George and Robert, in the 1930s, one from Jeff W. Lamar, who claimed to have played baseball for the Philadelphia Athletics before the formation of the major leagues. Patrick Henry Winston was a prominent lawyer of Windsor, N.C. The Williams family of Bertie and Martin counties, N.C., included H.S. (d. 1858?), Samuel (d. 1855?), Joseph J. (d. 1865?), John P. (d. 1860?), and William A.K. (fl. 1861-1873). Winston was counsel for William A.K. Williams and executor of the estate of Joseph J. Williams.
