New York City Property Owners

"List of the owners of houses and lots in the city, about the year 1674, at the final cession to the English; the property being classified according to its relative value, as first, second, third and fourth; with the national descent of the persons named - given to illustrate the condition of the population a that era - and their estimated wealth. The estimate of the wealth of the several inhabitants of New york, at this period, is not based upon any single document, but is compiled from various sources, and is only designed by the author (David T. Valentine), to be considered as an approximate estimate, formed from the best evidences within his reach."
