Family papers


This series includes the papers of individual family members. When studying a particular subject, it is important to cross check the files of various family members, because they may contain complementary information (for instance, the financial records of Jonathan Sayward should be studied in conjunction with those of his grandson Jonathan Sayward Barrell because the latter continued the business activities of the former). The genealogical notes that originally were added to the files by Nathaniel Wheeler have been removed and filed with his own papers (box 1, folder 56).
