Charlestown

Other Charlestown Patents

There are 16 landholders in Charlestown in the 1715 tax return. The total acreage is 8,480 acres. This compares with a 12/28/1737-8 survey result of 12,950 acres and a quote (deed E-456) of 5,358 acres split among 16 friends which is stated as coming to 340 acres per person (actually 334 acres). The 5,000 acres will have been before the 6% road allowance which brings it to 5,300 acres.
