Proprietor Records from 1653
The records and maps from the Hampshire Proprietors books have been scanned and images are now available online. The seven Proprietors books consist of Bradstreet & Dennison Farm & Hatfield, Granby, Hadley, Narragansett Township No. 4, Northampton, Pelham and South Hadley and date from 1653 to 1835. There are separate files for the records and the indices for each town or township.
These records can be accessed by using the 'Search our Records Online' link, selecting Search Criteria, Recorded Land, Unindexed Property Search and entering the Index Code or Book Code from the chart shown below. Presently there is no identifying information for the index so each page needs to be opened. We are currently working on a limited indexing process that can be entered into the system to make these indices more user-friendly.
