Boston, Nov. i:!, 18U0. 

The Board of Aldermen of the City of Boston, 
acting as County Commissioners for the County of 
Suffolk, by orders approved by the Mayor, April 13, 
1880, Dec. 19, 1882, Oct. 11, 1881, and Dec. 22, 
188(3, in answer to the ])etitions of Edward S. Rand 
and of William I. Bowditch, and many other mem- 
bers of the Suffolk Bar, authorized the printing of 
the first, second, third, and fourth volumes of Suffolk 
Deeds. 

By an order passed Jan. 2, 1889, the Board of Al- 
dermen authorized the Register of Deeds *"^ to have 
printed, stereot3q)ed, indexed, and distributed the 
fifth volume of Suffolk Deeds." The order was 
passed in answer to the following petition: —

From an accurate transcript of the original, made 
by Frank E. Bradish, Esq., this book was printed. 
As an additional safeguard against the possil)ility of 
typographical errors, the proof-sheets were com- 
pared by him, not with the copy, but with the orig- 
inal record. 

The Index, like that of the preceding volumes, 
was made nnder the supervision of John T. Has- 
SAM, Esq., who, it is well known, has shown great 
interest in the preservation of our early records, and 
whose exertions in their behalf have been repeatedly 
acknowledged by me.

INTEODUCTION. 



During the period covered by Lib. V. of Suffolk 
Deeds, Edward Rawson continued to be the Re- 
corder for the County of Suffolk, and a large part of 
the book is in his handwriting. The first deed was 
recorded Xov. 16, l(3(r), and the last Feb. 3, 1668-9. 

Reversing the volume and beginning at the other 
end, he entered on two pages certain strays, and on 
another, the proceedings at a meeting of the Council 
held March 8, 16()0, in regard to the warrant for the 
arrest of the regicides, Goffe and Whalley, and in 
relation to the censure of the Rev. John Eliot's 
" Christian Commonwealth." These three pages 
have been placed at the beginning of the printed 
volume, and they have been marked with Roman 
instead of Arabic numerals, in order to distinguish 
them from the others. 

The condition of the book itself is even Avorse than 
that of its immediate predecessor. The paper on 
which it is written, although thicker in texture, has 
not been so well able to resist the effects of time and 
constant use. Between pages 2 and 5, two pages of 
the original index have been carelessly bound up 
during some later rebinding. They fill the place of 
pages 3 and 4, now lost. Pages 11. 12, 222, and 223 
are also wanting. 

The pagination is exti'emely irregidar. Page 107 
was, by mistake of the Recorder, numbered 167, and 
is followed by page 168, etc. The page next after 



VI 



Introduction. 



page 286, instead of being 2o7, is 337, and this erro- 
neous enumeration is continued until page 406, which 
is heedlessly called 446, and is followed by page 
447, etc., in regular order. Tliere are two pages 
195. 

In the printed volume the pages of the original 
are indicated by numbers placed at the top of every 
page, and also in brackets in that part of the printed 
page where each page of the original begins. There 
is no other pagination, and the Index is thus made to 
refer directly to the pages of the MS. record. 

The reader is again reminded that, according to 
the Julian Calendar, which w^as in use wlicn these 
records were made, the legal year began on the 2.")th 
of March, so that when the month is designated by 
number, and not by name, March is the first month. 

A key to the characters representing the contrac- 
tions found in the manuscript is added.
