Document Name: Samuel Luther and Thomas Estabrook land survey record

Author: John Buterworth, et al.
Date: [nd]
Place: [Swansea, Massachusetts]
Endorsement(s): None

Abstract: This document and the two following (MSN/COL 2718-45 and MSN/COL 2718-46) are undated survey records detailing the laying out of lots and roads during Swansea's formative years, in the early 1670s. The present record describes the adjacent lots of Samuel Luther and Thomas Estabrooke (of 40 and 20 acres, respectively). The document bears two signatures of John Buterworth—one of five persons given responsibility for the disposal of land in the new town— as well as those of Luther, Estabrook, and Nicholas Tanner. All four men were among the 55 "first signers" admitted to Swansea (1669/70). This particular document may well date from the time the survey was made, c1671.

Physical Description: Ink on paper; 1 page (16 x 11 cm.) on 1 sheet.

Number: MSN/COL 2718-44
