Deed Notes

On October 30, 1804, in Orleans, a group of proprietors request a warrant from Timothy Bascom, justice of the peace for Barnstable County, to arrange a meeting to divide a parcel of meadow flats and beach into fourteen lots. The land was originally purchased by Jeremiah Hows of Yarmouth. The proprietors ask to meet at the dwelling house of Thomas Linnel in Harwich on November 28, 1804. The second side of the document records the results of this meeting on November 28, 1804, in Orleans. Pursuant to a warrant from Timothy Bascom, the proprietors assembled that day and Isaac Freeman called the meeting, read the orders, nominated a moderator, and called for a vote, which passed in the negative.
