On Saturday morning I appeared on the Warren Shaw show on radio station WCAP in Lowell to talk about historic deeds that were recorded here at the registry. I’ve now posted two of them on our website. The first is known as the “Wheelwrigth Grant” which is a 1629 deed for all the land “from the Piscataqua to the Merrimack.” It encompasses all of present day Southern New Hampshire and the portion of Massachusetts north of the Merrimack. The second deed is one from 1832 for property on Fenwick Street in Lowell. It specifically prohibits any Irish from occupying the property.
