Description

This is a legal document. The verso is labeled "General Discharge B. Corvaisier to John Kean." Bartholomew Corvaisier received a payment of 10,000 Mexican Dollars by John Kean, to eliminate any claims that Corvaisier had against John Kean, Edward Barnwell, and Robert Barnwell.

Other names included: Nathaniel Barnwell, Daniel Bourdeaux, Isaac Waight Jane Corvaisier.

Signed by Corvaisier in the presence of Thomas Tuder Tucker and Robert Barnwell.

This is very similar to two other legal documents of the same date.

Collection

The Liberty Hall Collection consists of the correspondence, financial records, legal documents, and other manuscript material of the Livingston and Kean families, dated from 1686-1847. The bulk of the collection is related to Susan Livingston Kean Niemcewicz (1759-1833). The Livingston and Kean families frequently corresponded and held accounts with other prominent colonial and early American families in New Jersey, especially Elizabeth-Town, Philadelphia, New York City, upstate New York, England, France, and Poland. A small portion of the collection includes correspondence with early Virginia families, unrelated to the Livingston and Kean families.
