    Simon Bradstreet Document Signed "Simon Bradstreet Gov." with four lines in his hand as governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. One sheet, 14.5" x 20.25", County [Massachusetts Bay Colony], October 18, 1679. Bradstreet's four lines appear at the end of this land deed which concerns John and Martha Chubburd and William House of Hingham and reads, "John Chubburd appearing before me this 9th day of October 1679 acknowledged this instrument to be his act and deed Martha his wife freely [?] thereunto/ Simon Bradstreet Gov."
