1816 Advertisement for Sale of Two Farms in the Manor of Pelham

In 1816 a brief advertisement appeared in New York newspapers offering two farms located in the Manor of Pelham for sale. The farms apparently belonged to William and George Crawford. A transcription of the advertisement appears below, followed by a citation to its source.


TWO FARMS pleasantly situated in Westchester county, manor of Pelham, and state of New-York, about seventeen miles from this city. One of them contains 105 acres, and the other 47 acres of excellent land; adjoining East Chester creek, being about half a mile from the Boston Post Road, and about the same distance from the new bridge across East Chester creek. On the said Farms there is a large Dwelling-House, Barn and other Out-Houses, together with a handsome bearing Apple Orchard. There is a proportion of meadow, arable, and woodland. They are well calculated for a gentleman wishing a summer retreat. The above will be sold together or separate as may suit the purchaser, on reasonable terms, if applied for on or before the first day of June next. Enquire of RICHARD BERBIAN, No. 8 Phoenix Buildings, or to William and George Crawford, on the premises. may 21"
