Summary
  • These warrants were issued by the Register of the Land Office after notification by the auditor that the set fee had been paid into the commonwealth's treasury. The warrant then authorized any county surveyor to survey the number of acres specified for the individual named in the warrant. These records cover the period from 1779 Oct 15 to 1794 May 19; the bulk of the warrants are from between 1779 and 1783. The warrant numbers range between 174 and 23087
  • These warrants were usually filed with the final survey to which they applied, but this set of warrants was kept separately. It is possible that these warrants were returned later than the related surveys and were never interfiled, or that they were returned for exchange because of an error. Many of the warrants include handwritten annotations on the back, in some instances indicating that the original holder of the warrant relinquished his claims to someone else or that a survey had been conducted
