Description[John Hancock] Partly Printed Deed of Land. One page, recto and verso, 13" x 7.75", Lancaster, Massachusetts, January 18, 1772. With this document, "William Greenleaf of Lancaster In the county of Worcester and province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England" sold "Three Acres and fifty two Rods of Land in Lancaster Aforesaid near the meeting house in the first parish, with a dwelling house barn & shop... and also Twenty Eight acres of Intervale Land in said Lancaster..." to John Hancock of Boston, for the sum of "Two Hundred Sixty Six pounds thirteen shillings & four pence lawfull [sic] money." In the early 1770s, as tensions between colonists and the British flared in and around Boston, John Hancock agreed to purchase land in nearby Lancaster. Signed on verso by Greenleaf, with an interesting notation in another hand which reads "not recorded therefore lost." Light toning, several repairs to seal tears.
