EXTENT: ca. 100 items (one container and five oversize folders).

ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT: Two series, I. Property in Concord, 1686-1925, containing documents relating to real and personal property in Concord, Mass., and II. Non-Concord Property, 1673-1893, consisting of documents relating to real property in places other than Concord. Items within each series are arranged alphabetically by property owner or, in the case of deeds, by the name of the party conveying rather than the party acquiring the property. (The filing name is in bold and italic type in the item listing, other parties connected with a transaction in bold only. The place of residence for a non-Concord party is included in the item listing if specified in a document; if no place follows a name, it may be assumed that the party is of Concord.) Multiple items filed under a single name are arranged chronologically. (Deeds are dated by the date witnessed rather than the date received or recorded in the registry or by the dates of subsequent transactions that are recorded on some deeds.)

SCOPE AND CONTENT: An artificial collection of about 100 documents (1673-1925) relating to real and personal property in Concord (1686-1925) and elsewhere in Massachusetts (1673-1893). About three quarters of the collection relates to Concord property, one quarter to property outside of Concord—in Boston, Braintree, Cambridge, Cummington, Littleton, Medfield, Natick, Quincy, Sudbury and East Sudbury, and "Tyng’s Township." The collection consists primarily of deeds, but also includes agreements, building specifications, an estate inventory and other estate records (among them documents relating to the "widow’s third"), an insurance-related document, leases, letters, mortgage-related documents, notes, a memorandum, plans (surveys), promissory notes, proprietors’ records, a receipt, a will, and a writ of replevin. The following personal, family, and institutional names are represented among the documents pertaining to Concord property: Ball; Barrett; Bartlett; Bateman; Bates; Bigelow; Billings; Boynton; Britton; Brooks; Brown; Buttrick; Concord (Town of); Concord Mill Dam Company; Dakin; Damon; Darby; Davis; Eastabrook; Edwards; Farrar; First Parish in Concord; Flagg; Flint; Friend; Garrison; Goodnow; Hagerty; Hastings; Haynes; Hayward; Helsjer; Heywood; Hoar; Holbrook; Hosmer; How; Hubbard; Hudson; Hunt; Jones; Keyes; Lee; Maynard; Merrick; Middlesex Mutual Fire Insurance Company; Miles; Minot; Norton; Parkman; Potter; Prescott; Prichard; Puffer; Robbins; Shattuck; Smith; Stearns; Stow; Sudbury (Constables of); Taylor (Taillor); Thatcher; Thoreau; Tolman; Tuttle; Walker; Warren; Wheeler; Wigly; Wilson; Winthrop; Wooley; and Wright. The following names are included in the documents relating to non-Concord property: Abbot; Barron; Bowdoin; Bowery; Brown; Colburn; Coolidge; Crossboy; Cumming (Cuming); Curtis; (Curtiss); Dakin; Fuller; Greene; Haynes; Hoar; Hollis; Howard; Jerault; Lowder; Maynard; Morrill; Neal; Prescott; Proprietors of the Common Land (or Common & Undivided Land) in Sudbury; Proprietors of Township No. 5; Puffer; Scammell; Shepard (Sheppard); Smith; Stow; Whale; and Winthrop.

SOURCES OF ACQUISITION: Multiple; most not established. (Known sources of acquisition for particular items are noted in the item listing.)

ASSOCIATED MATERIALS: The Middlesex Registry of Deeds is responsible for systematically and comprehensively archiving Concord deeds and making them available to the public. Official, legally acceptable copies can be obtained only from the registry, not from the Concord Free Public Library or the Concord Town Clerk’s office. The library’s Special Collections hold only copy deeds from personal and family collections, reflecting a very small percentage of the Concord deeds on file at the registry, which keeps the copies of record of all Concord deeds, including the deeds in this collection. In addition to the collection here described, several other collections in the CFPL contain deeds and other documentation relating to real and personal property in Concord and elsewhere: Barrett Family Papers; Nathan Brooks Family Papers; Allen French-Ruth Wheeler Collection of Papers and Documents Relating Primarily to Concord, Mass.; Keyes Family Deeds and Other Property Documents; Stow Family Papers; Winnifred Sturdy Collection of Papers and Records Connected Primarily with Concord, Mass; and Charles Hosmer Walcott Papers. Contact the staff of the CFPL Special Collections for further information.

NOTES/COMMENTS: The bulk of the collection was transferred from the former Concord Free Public Library Letter Files. Old Letter File numbers are recorded in the item listing. Several more recently acquired items in the collection were accessioned (their accession numbers also noted in the item listing).
