 DAIMLER, GOTTLIEB

JAMES DELANCEY (1703-1760) Acting colonial governor of the Province of New York and a leading figure in the area's development. Autograph Document Signed, "James Delancey." One page, 4" x 6 1/4" No place. No date [1736]. The documents reads: "Mr. A Horney The Tract of Glen & William Bowen as tenants in common. The Tract of four thousand acres to James DeLancey, John Lyndesay, Paschal Nelson & Jacob Glen to be held in like manner Yours James Delancey." Historical records indicate a 1736 transfer of ten thousand acres to James Delancey and the above listed common tenants, most likely the same acreage transferred in this document. A fine colonial land document that highlights the common practice of deeding large tracts of former Native American lands to oneself, one's friends and business associates. Very Fine.
