Notes

Microfilm of original records at the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society.

This project was under the auspices of the Holland Land Company manuscript preservation project at the State University of New York College at Fredonia.

This set contains three primary collections, The Holland Land Company records, the Henry Glowacki papers, and the Charles W. Evans collection. The Holland Land Company records, 1790-1837, contain mostly Joseph Ellicott correspondence. Land sale records are also included with articles of agreements and contract ledgers for land sold in and near Buffalo. The Henry Glowacki papers, 1795-1860 were donated in 1892 by Henry Glowacki, a lawyer for proprietors who bought land and assets from the Holland Land Company in 1835. This collection contains land transfer records, financial documents, and land transactions between Massachusetts and various owners of pre-emption land in Western New York. Also included are land sales on the Indian Reservations, resulting problems and published law cases. The Charles W. Evans collection, 1701-1871, includes about 250 letters between Joseph Ellicott and a number of agents of the Holland Land Company and neighboring land companies, political figures, settlers, and family members.

Each volume of the Joseph Ellicott correspondence has an name index.

A detailed finding aid precedes all the filmed material on each roll.

For BUF 52, 53, 62, 63, 67, 68, 97, see BUF 58. BUF 80 (Abstracts of treaties, 1794-1846), not filmed.
