$125.00

These two unrelated documents are being offered as a pair, representing the two most common early American documents to be found - the bond, and a land deed - both from New England. These are fantastic pieces of history from a time when George Washington was President of a very young United States - and best of all, you don't need to mortgage the house to own them. What's especially fascinating about these is that you can really appreciate the old method of printing, where the hand-set plate was pressed into the paper.
1794 Bond - Laid paper, pre-printed legal form for William M. Bell, Esq, 7 Sherriff in Bergan County, New Jersey. Bond on the amount of 30 Pounds was paid for William Fox, Henry Fox, and Richard Wanamaker. Dated May 14, 1794, and are ordered to answer the accusation of damages to the opposing party in June. Witnesses signed at the bottom include Christian Wanamaker, Albert Hopper, as well as the defendants. What is interesting is that Henry Fox placed an "X" for his name, and in the hand of William Fox, Henry's name was written in, with a notation that the "X" represented "his mark". This was a common practice for those who were illiterate and were not able to write their name. 1795 Land Deed - Heavier reed paper, April 20th dated land sale. The document records that Abel Alleyne was paid 33 Pounds by Caleb Faxon (Thaxson) of Braintree, Norfolk County, Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Signed by Abel and Anna (his wife), Abel Alleyne, and the Justice of the Peace - Stephen (insert scribble here).
The documents remain in good condition for being 225/226 years old. They show signs of age, use, and wear. Wear along the edge, corners, as well as holes in the area where the document was folded is evident. Overall, nice and perfectly suitable for framing. Please see the pictures for more detail.
