1692 New Jersey Indenture. Very early New Jersey indenture, dated November 30, 1692, "between Timothy Hamork of Pimsaguin in the Province of West Jersey in the County of Burlington, yeoman…and John Axloton, William Hollin, Thomas Wallis and John Wallis…" The deed discusses some land purchases of burial plot rights. It is 15 x 12 in., with overall toning and some foxing, and small areas of paper loss at folds. Tape reinforcement at folds on verso. Signed with five signatures or marks; one small red wax seal is present. Indentures, or contracts, from New Jersey at this early date, are quite scarce. Burlington was settled earlier than Philadelphia and was the first Capitol of New Jersey. This document deserves further research.
Estimated Value $500 - 600.

Realized $661
