  • 1. The "Colonial Entry Books" to 1688 comprise a series of one hundred and nine volumes which are arranged alphabetically as regards the Colonies to which they relate, and contain entries of a variety of kinds, all of which will be found calendared in their order of date. A list of them is placed immediately after the Preface, so that the reader may see at a glance the general contents of each volume. The entry from Virginia, Vol. 79, is the earliest, and therefore abstracted the first.
