Other Documents

The New Hampshire “Act for the Settlement and Distribution of the Estate of Intestates” of 13 May 1718 that was at issue in this case is printed in New Hampshire, Laws 1718, p. 102–104. It is reproduced here (pdf) from the Early American Imprints, series 1, Evans no. 1985. (The reproduction is not great, and the original, which we have not seen, may not be either. But with a struggle, it can be read.)
