Out of stock
Author: Mary Marshall Brewer. 2007. The land records of York County, Pennsylvania, begin with the founding of the county in 1749. This book represents abstracts from Deed Book E (1771–1774) and Deed Book F (1773–1775). The county was created out of Lancaster County, which, at its inception, included all of present-day York and Adams Counties. Adams County was established in 1800. Most of the early settlers of York County were Germans. The Scotch-Irish settlers began arriving shortly after the Germans, settling in the southeastern region of the county. In many of the deeds, the line of ownership reveals the relationship of parents, grandparents, spouses, and others. This is especially helpful when the ancestor died without a will (intestate). An index to full names and places adds to the value of this work. 263 pages. Indexed. Softcover. Very good condition. Non-circulating library edition, with library ID markings. 8.5” x 11” x 1”. Duplicate in WPGS library.
