Farmers and Mechanics National Bank of Georgetown Check
William Marbury, first president of The Farmers and Mechanics National Bank of Georgetown, is most widely known as plaintiff in the constititional case of Marbury v. Madison. Marbury also served as a Director on the boards of the Bank of Columbia and the Potomac Canal Company. He was one of the "Midnight Jugdes" appointed by John Adams on his last day of presidency. The appointment was never formally delivered and Marbury sued Secretary of State James Madison for formal delivery of his judicial appointment. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Madison with John Marshall providing the opinion of the Court. This case established the power of the Supreme Court in judicial review.
