Abstracts of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Land Records, 1711-1749


Bucks County was one of Pennsylvania's original counties. This work includes references to all persons found in the land records, with the goal of revealing information useful to genealogical research. These land records include deeds, leases, releases, mortgages, agreements and declarations of trust. From these records, one can discover an ancestor's family relationships, occupation, neighbors and perhaps even a little about his lifestyle, including debts and lawsuits. Some of these land records provide the name of the owner as far back as the 1680s, when the original grantee received the patent from William Penn. The entries are arranged in the order they were recorded in the deed books, and the original page number is included. A full name index rounds out this useful resource. (1998), 2005, 5½x8½, paper, index, 232 pp.
