Minute Book 3: 1727

The entries for 1727 are quite out of order and contain many duplicates.  In fact they are an interesting study in the approaches taken by 18th century clerks.  It is clear that they did not consider it important to be uniform about their use of abbreviations any more than about spelling.  Thus a word that is abbreviated in one copy of a document may be written out in full in another.  If something seems unclear, it can be helpful to look at both copies as well as the original images. You can view a chronological version of 1727 as a webpage or download it here as a PDF AIC_RecordBooks-V1-1727only
