Before exploring the second deed, I need to take a minute to review the history of Concord (Lisbon) NH. For some unexplained reason this town was granted twice to different groups of men in 1763 and 1764. The original grant was re-granted in 1768 and then re-granted yet again. The boundaries of each grant were not exactly the same and the proprietors varied as well. Not all land sales were made under the proper grant which caused problems concerning legal title to the lands. In 1787 New Hampshire appointed a man to help the settlement deal with it’s issues. The affect of this controversy must have been deeply concerning to the common man who paid good money to purchase his land only to discover he may not have a legal title.

I recently acquired 11 deeds from Grafton County, New Hampshire concerning Edward Marden Sr & Jr. Many thanks to my new friends at genealogyfreelancers.com and Tricia Thompson, CG, the Genealogist I hired to retrieved the deeds. It was a very smooth experience.
