Denton Family of Jamaica Miscellaneous Documents
Description: This collection consists only of 13 documents. Since the documents are dated principally in the 1780s and 1790s, it is assumed that they flourished at this period. There are earlier documents (back to 1736), two of which bear the same names, these probably being parents or other relatives of the pair. The documents apparently all deal with real estate in the Jamaica area, and are real estate indentures or related documents such as mortgages. Most documents are in poor condition.
