COPIED SURVEYS, 1681-1912. [series #17.114]

*Images of Each Survey*


The surveys in this volume are arranged by book and page number, which were assigned by Land Office staff in no particular alphabetical or chronological order when the surveys were re-drafted and bound into books. If you have not already done so, you will need to consult the scanned pages of another series, the Warrant Registers, 1733-1957 {series #17.88} in order to determine the survey book and page number for a particular person's survey.

Each survey page in a Copied Survey Book has a front and back. The front displays the shape of the tract, its measurements, the names of the owner and surrounding owners at the time, and a short paragraph of narrative information. The page number is shown as a stamped numeral in the upper right hand corner. The back of the page has no page number. It re-iterates basic information about the survey, and also shows the date that the survey was returned to the Land Office. Normally, the patent on the land was issued shortly after this return date.
