Hayward - Fay Archive, Concord, Massachusetts, Silhouettes, Letters & Documents
Jonathan and Lucy Prescott Fay
Samuel Prescott Phillips Fay
(Three hollow-cut profiles are stamped KING; William King; two by anonymous hand)
Nearly all material relates to Justice Abiel Haywood of Concord, Massachusetts
Haywood Archive: Oversized shoe box of documents, legal papers, related letters, and miscellaneous ephemera, mostly dating from the very late 18th C. to the 3rd Qtr. of the 19th C., with the vast bulk being early 1800's. Most, or all, of the contents seems to be associated with Justice Haywood; he presided over all kinds of legal disputes. A quick survey of the contents seems to be heavy on the financial disputes, wills, and land agreements, with outliers to include an 1828 blank voting tally sheet for choosing Representatives to the House, A complaint for forced intimacy, congressional record extract, etc. Lots of interesting items, appears to be 200+ (we didn't count them), interesting names, content, an interesting variety of old paper. Some of the towns (from memory only) Concord, Boston, Bridgewater, Chelmsford, Acton, etc...and many, many 1800's New England names to research! Some of these items seem quite worthy of framing, and worthy of further study!
