1669 Map of Lands in Dispute Between Thomas Pell and John Richbell

At the time of his death in late September, 1669, Thomas Pell was involved in a dispute with John Richbell over who owned certain lands at the edge of Pell's patent. The New York State archives contain a map of the land created at the time of the dispute. Below is an image of that map, followed by a citation to its source.
