Collection Summary

Abstract

This collection consists of early land conveyance records for Boston and other cities and towns in Massachusetts, collected and transcribed in the 19th century by Boston lawyers, including William I. and Frederick C. Bowditch, as part of their work as conveyancers.

Biographical Sketches

George D. Bigelow (d. 1938) was a lawyer who, according to street directories, had an office in Boston from 1877-1938. He resided in Framingham from ca. 1903 until his death on 15 August 1938.

Frederick Channing Bowditch (1854-1925) was the son of William Ingersoll Bowditch (1819-1909) and Sarah Higginson Bowditch (1819-1919). He attended MIT and Harvard Law School. He was a lawyer and conveyancer and was the president of the Conveyancers' Title Insurance Company. He married Elizabeth Thompson Forster in 1897.

William Ingersoll Bowditch (1819-1909) was the son of Nathaniel Bowditch (1773-1838) and Mary Ingersoll Bowditch (1781-1834). (He was the brother of Nathaniel Ingersoll Bowditch, the real estate lawyer who compiled the Boston conveyances in the Bowditch Titles collection.) William I. Bowditch graduated from Harvard University in 1838 and received the LL.B. degree in 1841. He was a conveyancer and estate trustee. He married Sarah Rhea Higginson (1819-1919), and they and their children resided in Brookline.

John Goldsbury (died 1878) graduated from Harvard University in 1842. According to street directories, he practiced law in Boston from 1846-68.

John Tyler Hassam (1841-1903) was the son of John Hassam and Abby Hilton Hassam. He graduated from Harvard University in 1863. After serving eight months as First Lieutenant of the 75th U. S. Colored Infantry, he returned to Boston and studied law in the office of Ambrose A. Ranney. In 1867, he was admitted to the bar. He was an active and well-respected conveyancer. He became a member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society in 1867 and wrote several genealogical articles. He helped oversee the publication of Suffolk Deeds and the indexes to the New England Historical and Genealogical Register. He was a member of the Massachusetts Historical Society from 1881 until his death in 1903. His use of historical records in his professional work and during genealogical research projects prompted him to advocate for the preservation of county court records and better access to the materials in the state archives. He married Nelly Alden Batchelder in 1878.

Edward Sprague Rand (ca. 1807-1884) graduated from Harvard University in 1828 where, in 1831, he received his LL.B. According to street directories, he had a law office in Boston from 1832-1883. He was a member of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. He died on 19 January 1884.

Edward Sprague Rand, Jr. (1829-1897) graduated from Harvard University in 1855, and in 1857, he received his LL.B. from the same institution. According to street directories, he shared a law office in Boston with his father from 1858-1876. He resided in Dedham and was an active member of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society.

Luther L. White (dates unknown) was a Boston lawyer where, according to street directories, he maintained an office from 1857-1868.

Collection Description

This collection consists of 443 volumes of real estate conveyances, 15 volumes of indexes and 1 box containing photocopies of tables of contents, and 1 additional volume (relating to office forms used by a conveyancer). The dates of the collection and in the carton list indicate the year the titles were examined and researched. The contents of the volumes--transcriptions of property deeds and probate records--span a wide range of dates, many including transcriptions of 17th-century information.

Many of the volumes of conveyance records include tables of contents or indexes that list the locations (streets) of the properties examined and the names of the vendor or purchaser of the properties. Photocopies of the tables of contents for the Bowditch series remain onsite for reference.

XII. E. S. Rand Titles, Country, 1836-1881

This series consists of 10 volumes of conveyances relating to properties outside of Boston, including Roxbury, Norfolk County, Middlesex County, and Essex County. Each volume of titles includes a table of contents (located at the end of each volume) that lists the city and street location of the property and the purchaser or mortgager.

This index is arranged by town and then lists street locations of properties in rough alphabetical order. Although the volumes comprising this series and the preceding series (E. S.

XIV. E. S. Rand, Jr. Titles, Country, 1859-1874

This series consists of 10 volumes of conveyances relating to properties outside of Boston, including Roxbury, Norfolk County, Middlesex County, and Essex County researched by Edward Sprague Rand, junior. Volumes 2, 4, 5, 7, 11 each include a table of contents (located at the end of each volume) that lists the street location of the property and the purchaser or mortgager. One index volume is available onsite and this index includes titles in both E. S. Rand Titles, Country series and E. S. Rand, Jr. Titles, Country series. This index is arranged by town and then lists street locations of properties in rough alphabetical order. Although the volumes comprising this series and the preceding series (E. S. Rand, Jr. Titles, City) have one numbering sequence, they have been separated into two series because they have been indexed in two different cumulative index volumes.
