Deed Book 2 (1765-1773)

NOTE: Although the dates covered by the reconstructed Deed Bk. 2 are 1765-1773, there are a number of deeds from the first two decades of the eighteenth century, and the last deeds were written and recorded in Sept. 1774.  The register, Samuel Jarvis, adds to the mystery of registration by neglecting to record accurately the dates of presentation in court and the deeds recording.  He also adopted a somewhat whimsical method of pagination by numbering his pages by deeds rather than by folios.  Sometimes the page number will be in the middle of the sheet of paper at the beginning of a new deed, sometimes he skips pages, misnumbers sheets, etc.  Therefore Deed Book 2 is much longer than its stated 533 pages, although the last 30 pages or so contain two deeds per sheet and therefore two page numbers per sheet.  There is also clear indication that the substance of deed Book 2 was originally contained in a no-longer extant Deed Book 3 and was recopied at some point.
