Scope and Content Note

These notebooks contain survey notes of Holland Land Company lands in New York State.

They provide information on: name of surveyor; year; survey data; survey diagrams; and name of village surveyed (sometimes).

The records were purchased by the state from the widow of David E. E. Mix, who had published lists of Holland Land Company records in Catalogue of Maps and Surveys in the Offices of the Secretary of State, State Engineer and Surveyor, and Comptroller, and the New York State Library (Albany, 1859). Other Holland Land Company field notes are in Miscellaneous Field Notes Relating to Holland Land Company and Adjoining Tracts (Series B0254). Maps of these lands are in Maps of Land Purchased from the Holland Land Company (Series A4018).
