      Transcribed by Martin Hollick, The Slovak Yankee: Deed of Charles Allen

      To all people to whom these presents shall come, know ye that I Charles Allein of Greenland of ye Town of Portsmouth in New Hampshire Husbandman for, and in consideration of ye love and affection, which I beare towards my well beloved son Daniel Allein, have given, granted, and by those presents, do freely clearly, and absolutely give and grant to my well beloved son Daniel Allein, his heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns, all and singular my farme of land and meadow ground, lying, and being in Greenland in ye Town and province aforesaid, butting and bounding as followeth: beginning eight rods from ye land was formerly Philip Lewis's running North West and by west to a hemlock forty fower rod, and from thence South and be West to a white oak so marked and upon ye same points to a cart path being about thirty five acres further: and, seven rods to a hemlock to ye same cart path marked to ye Eastward of a house formerly called William Davis's house and from thence along the cart path north eight rods of ye mill dam and from thence upon a straight line to ye first beginning and containing about fourty acres more or less and all woods, trees, orchards, houses, barns, rights, priviledges, and appurtenances thereunto belonging. To have and to hold ye same and all moveables, and chattels to my aforesaid son, Daniel Allein, his heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns forever, and grant by these presents, before ye ensealing hereof, order my well beleoved son Daniel Allein to pay these legacies as follows, viz. to my two daughters Susanna and Martha five pounds a piece in good current pay, six months after marriages; and to my son John ten pounds and a horse, as he comes to ye age of twenty one years. And as to my son Charles, I have formerly given him his portion in land, as will appeare under my hand; and further I now order my Son Daniel Allein to maintain my own person with appropriate meat, drink, washing, and lodging, during my naturall life and at my decease to bury me decently; and further my order is to my Son Daniel Allein that he pay my son Jude ten pounds in good pay; and in formation to all and every part hereof, I have put my hand and seal this fourteenth day of September in ye year of the Lord God, seventeen hundred and five.

      Signed, Sealed, and Delivered in ye presences of us witnesses: Abraham Lewis; Ebenezer Johnson

      Charles Allein (by mark)

      Recorded on 7 October 1705

      Hollick remarks: "This is a wonderful example of a colonial deed for life support that also acts as a quasi-will. By this document we can infer his wife is dead and that his children are Daniel, Jude, Susannah, Martha, and John. Susannah and Martha are not yet married and John is less that 21 years old."
