Deed Book 3 (
Mixed dates)

NOTE: Deed Book 3 begins in the 1730's, meanders backwards and forwards in time to the 1710's and 1750's, and then jumps abruptly into the first years of the nineteenth century.  It contains the oldest group of deeds, which were recopied by the register and so noted.  The recopying of the oldest deeds in Deed Book 3 resulted in the misinterpretation of the date of writing, presenting, and recording in the deeds.  The reader will see that from time to time the dates of presentation in court are later than those of the original recording.  One solution to this involves the practice of observing the old calendar versus the new.  For instance, in Deed Bk. 3, pg. 13, it lists the dates as 19 Nov 1739, 1 Jan 1739 and 26 Mar 1739.  The most reasonable explanation for this discrepancy is that the two latter dates should be written 1739/40, a facet of dating that was ignored by the nineteenth century clerks who recopied these deeds.  At times, however, there is no explanation for a discrepancy in the sequencing of dates.  Such must be attributed to scribal error.  [A note at the beginning of the book says]: According to note p. 22 the below were copied herein in 1800.  The middle of this book pp. 86 to 123 contains the earliest deeds of record in this county. They date from 1696 to 1713.  The beginning from 1735 to 1740.  The end from 1796 to 1805.  Book two has 1761 to 1790 with a few re-recorded 1704 etc. deeds as on pp. 327 and 416 (1719).
