The Natchez Court Records, 1767-1805
In 1781, two years after Spain took the Natchez District from the British, the Spanish commandant commenced to record all matters involving the mainly British inhabitants that would normally come before a tribunal--records of sureties, bills of sale for land and slaves, inventories, appraisals, wills, etc. Records of these matters comprise Part One of this work; the second part of the work, Land Claims, 1767-1805, deals with British land grants in the Natchez District and is based on abstracts of land titles submitted to the United States for confirmation of land ownership.
