1701 New Jersey Indenture. A lovely, early vellum indenture dated November 20, 1701 "between William Ethbridge of ye Town and County of Pool and Joan, his wife…and John Couporthwait of West Jersey." It further states that "William Welch of London, merchant" originally owned this land, being exchanged in 1681, passing in 1682 to James Gilbert, then transferred in 1684, and so on. The land, situated in Gloucester County, constituted 1,000 acres, a very sizeable piece of property, even for that time. Written in brown ink on vellum, 14 x 22¼ in. Some toning, and a small fold tear. Signed by Ethbridge and two others; six witness signed on verso. A fine, early New Jersey colonial document.
Estimated Value $500 - 600.

Realized $288
