Deed Notes

Property not specifically stated as Orleans, but adjacent properties described as being in Orleans in other deeds. Seller's residence is also not stated. Part of the property is described by the abutting neighbors, and part is described by rods. That part reads: From the cart road to Eastham, thence 33 rods from the southeast corner of William Myrick's range. The rest of the bounds are: 18 rods, 9 feet; 35 rods, 9 feet; 34 rods, 12 feet. Knowles, a housewright, acts as the administrator for the estate of Seth Smith, late of Eastham. Reference is made to his (?) deed from March, 1808 at the Court of Common Pleas (location not stated). Handwriting very difficult to read and this entry needs to be completed. The property is not registered in Orleans, but in Eastham. Deed is marked Paid on verso. No year date is recorded in Eastham, just the month and day.
