The early volume includes extracts from the colonial proprietors' records as they relate to highways. There are unbound petitions and surveys from the years between 1784 and 1931 as well. Following the unbound petitions are miscellaneous documents, including an 1829 proposal by Jonathan Freeman to recover damages to his property and writs against Hanover for not maintaining various roads. Unbound surveys and petitions are filed in chronological order by year.
