New York Historical Manuscripts. Minutes of the Mayor’s Court of New York, 1674-1675


The publication of this volume sheds some light on the transition from Dutch rule in New York to English rule. The records contain any number of important new insights and will be plumbed enthusiastically by historians and genealogists. In addition to their value as legal and social history, they contain a considerable amount of biographical data. For most individuals Dr. Scott has noted additional data from other sources, giving vital statistics, occupations, and alternate forms of names.
