Index to Deeds: 36 Fairfield

The following is an index to property transfer deeds, easements, and building restriction agreements recorded at the Suffolk County Deed Registry from the original land purchase through December 31, 2015.  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

NOTE: The deed recorded in Book 8052, page 80 (6Jul1966) incorrectly states that the property begins on the east side of Fairfield 44.6 feet north of Newbury, and that the north-south measurement is 22.6 feet.  This inaccuracy – which is repeated in all subsequent deeds — is the result of a misreading of the prior deed recorded in Book 8052, page 77 (20Jun1966), which correctly stated that the property begins on the east side of Fairfield 44 feet 6 inches (i.e., 44.5 feet) north of Newbury, and the north-south measurement is 22 feet 6 inches (i.e. 22.5 feet).  All of the deeds correctly state that the lot is 1,350 square feet.
