Fonds F 775
7.6 metres of textual records
The miscellaneous collection is an artificial accumulation of documents assembled over a period of many years. There is no specific focus to the collection. Most of the collection is comprised of individual textual items such as letters, deeds, bonds, lists, warrants, invitations, certificates, etc. In some cases a number of items from one individual have been preserved as a unit within the collection. Most of the items in the collection are original documents; however, some are photocopies.
The collection is arranged chronologically, with undated items appearing at the beginning of the listing.
Title supplied from nature of collection.
Please note, item 1788 #5 is missing as of September, 2016.
No further accruals are expected.
