The work at hand, which derives from "Public Lands" and "Claims" records found in "The American State Papers," consists of British and Spanish land grants or patents made to Americans and subsequently recorded in the Register's Office for the Mississippi Territory. Each record gives the name of the original grantee, the present claimant, date of the grant, patent or commissioner's certificate, acreage, location of the grant, evidence of grant fulfillment, and remarks. Not every record comes with embellishments; however, those that do, provide evidence concerning the age of the grantee, date of original survey, names of relatives, and/or witnesses.
