WHY THESE BOOKS ARE INTERESTING

Prior to the 1830's the deed books for land deals in the Townships of Sidney, Thurlow, Rawdon, Hungerford, etc were recorded in a series of Hasting County Copybooks. These books have no index and are difficult to research so finding a name requires the old hunting in a hay stack approach. After the 1830's, the townships started to record land deals in their own Township Land Books. These township books have indexes of grantor and grantee so locating a surname is not too difficult.

The indexes below are made to assist researchers. The names of witnessess, wives, heirs can help flesh out relationships. These deeds can also can help to indicate that a person was still living at a time when death records are near non existent.

Thanks to Mark Davenport and Carm Foster for doing most of the transcribing work.
