About This Item

1766. Documents from the Settlement of a New Hampshire Estate [Manuscript Archive]. [New Hampshire]. [Wallace Family]. [Deeds, Receipts, Estate Inventories and Other Legal Documents]. Londonderry, NH, 1766, 1782-1801. 17 documents, 7 are 12" x 7-1/2" bifolia and single sheets, 1 is a 15" x 12" sheet, others range in size from 7" x 7-1/2" to 2" x 7-1/2." Moderate browning, somewhat lighter in places, foxing, some leaves have dampstaining, creases, tears along fold lines, a few small chips (with no loss to legibility), 2 items mended with cellotape on versos. $500. * The Wallaces were a prosperous family of farmers with substantial landholdings. Our archive is a collection of documents relating to the settlement of Thomas Wallace's estate in May 1790. Most of the documents are inventories and sale receipts from 1790. The remaining items are receipts for payments owed by the estate, which wasn't fully dissolved until 1801. Those written before 1790, including a lease from 1766, were probably presented to the estate to support a claim against it. Taken together, these documents offer an interesting look at the material circumstances of a wealthy New England farmer at the end of the 18th century.
