A point of confusion
There were two patents in Dutchess County with similar names:
- The Great (or Lower) Nine Partners Patent of 1697
- The Little (or Upper) Nine Partners Patent of 1706
Although they were adjacent to each other
(in the northeastern quadrant of the county, see the map),
they were quite distinct, having different "partners".
We are associated with the latter (the Little Nine Partners Patent),
and cannot help with queries for information regarding the other Dutchess County patents.
To assist those of you who are interested in the Great Nine Partners Patent,
we have compiled a page of information relevant to that patent and other related areas
Our mission is to foster
1) the study of the history of the area known as the 1706 Little Nine Partners patent in Dutchess County, NY, and
2) the conservation of the elements of that history.
