The books presented here are DEEDS, &c., VOL. II, 1651-1663, the next in the series, containing two volumes (as re-bound in the early nineteenth century) together as one, and DEEDS, &c., VOL. III, part 1, 1664-1671. The “&c” in the title calls attention to the inclusion of documents that are not deeds – private letters entered into the court record, for example. The dates given in the title indicate the period in which deeds were recorded. Some deeds, however, date from earlier years, but they had not been brought to court until several years after they had been drawn up. The earliest is from 1642: [DPL II (1): 171].    These transcriptions were made by Dr. Jeremy Dupertuis Bangs ca. 1998-2000. A generous grant from the Delano Kindred, together with additional funds from the Leiden American Pilgrim Museum Foundation, supported the indexing work, carried out by Sarah Moine, 2015-2016.

Abbreviations in the manuscript have been expanded within [square brackets]. In the index, town names refer to the New England towns unless identified as being in England. The deeds of Indian lands that appear in this volume have been published also in Indian Deeds: Land Transactions in Plymouth Colony, 1620-1691 (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2002; revised edition 2008). Personal names are given in bold-face type for the convenience of genealogists who do not read books while searching only for names.
