Proprietors of Cornish, NH record book

Identifier: 003443
Codex 003443

  • Staff Only


Records and meetings of the proprietors of Cornish, NH from 1765-1809. Includes a transcription copy of Governor Benning Wentworth's 1763 charter, a plat of the boundaries of Cornish as well as the original Proprietors names. Later entries focus on the laying out of roads, choosing from among the proprietors town officers, land division and church matters. The volume is bound in vellum covered boards and is likely a relict of a much earlier time as the laid paper is from Queen Elizabeth I paper maker, John Spilman, and displays his mill's water mark.
