1. Hall signed himself as president of the Upper House in correspondence during the first session and the convention. Although he is not referred to as president during the second session, he still occupied that position. During Hall's absence in the third session, and after his subsequent death in 1737, Richard Tilghman assumed the position as senior councilor and used the title of president of the Upper House during the fourth session. Tasker acted in Tilghman's stead during Tilghman's brief absence in the third session, and accordingly signed letters as president of the Upper House.
2. Hollyday was appointed to the Council on July 15, 1735, but did not attend until February 17, 1736/37, because he had been in Europe.
3. The election of Francis was declared illegal on April 3, 1735. He was, however, reelected and qualified on April 12, 1735.
4. Dulany declined to serve as speaker of the Lower House because of poor health. Harris was then chosen speaker. Dulany, however, did attend the Assembly as a delegate.
