1851 TEXAS LAND GRANT (SIGNED BY PETER BELL 3rd GOVERNOR OF TEXAS)


Click to EnlargeClick to EnlargeClick to EnlargeClick to EnlargeClick to EnlargeClick to Enlarge

Dated August 11, 1851.

Texas Land Grant of 320 acres in Milam District to a James Mayr.

Approximately 14" X 12 1/4". Vellum (calf skin paper), folded.

Signed by the third Governor of Texas, Peter H. Bell andthe Texas Commissioner of Public Lands, George Smyth.

Embossed with two seals - bottom/left & bottom/center (eachjustpartially decipherable).

Small hole at intersection of the top horizontal fold and center fold. At the left seal, about 1/3 of its perimeter is severed. A small patch missing at the center/left margin. And, a 5/8" tear at the upper/right corner. All noted for accuracy.

With magnification and significant patience, the faded handwritten script is readable & basically describes the property being granted.

The document, being aged vellum, is stiff and crinkled (likely influenced by innumerable Texas humidity & drying cycles). Further, there is an irregular mirrored light stain that is most apparent at bottom left and right. That area shows more crinkling - the stain source was likely water that contacted the folded document.

Despite the distressed condition, this is an impressive document.

A similar 1851 Texas Land Grant signed by Governor Bell was saleed here on May 21. This second example is the last Bell-signed Texas Land Grant we have.
