Index to Deeds: 16 Fairfield (Demolished)

The following is an index to property transfer deeds and party wall agreements recorded at the Suffolk County Deed Registry from the original land purchase until it was razed.  Mortgages, trust agreements, and other similar recorded documents are not included.  This index is intended as a guide only; actual deeds should be reviewed for details.

 In its deed to Grenville Braman and his partners (Book 826, p. 86; 16Feb1863), the Boston Water Power Company described the parcel as running west 95.57 feet from the boundary with the lands owned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to Fairfield.  In its deeds, the Commonwealth calculated the distance from Exeter to the boundary as 504.8 feet, leaving 95.20 feet to Fairfield, a discrepancy of 0.37 feet (4½ inches).
