Abstract:

Correspondence, insurance papers, leases, deeds, receipts, legal papers and letters testamentary, etc., 1711-ca. 1900, pertaining to the legal, professional, and financial affairs of New York broker James W. Bleecker, and to members of the related Bleecker, Chesebrough, Fanning, and Rathbone families.

Papers include a group of 137 items concerning claims against the Marine Insurance Company of New York and the Chatham Fire Insurance Company of New York, many resulting from seizure and condemnation of American vessels by the French government during 1804-1811 (Bleecker was a trustee of the Marine Insurance Company), and 84 letters, 1805-1863, which pertain primarily to his activities as a stock and insurance broker. Included are groups of land and legal papers concerning the affairs of Aaron C. Rathbone, Eliza Rathbone, Robert C. Rathbone, and Robert Rathbone. Also included is a group of 18 letters and sheriffs warrants, 1711-1750, of Hugh Hall of Boston, mostly letters sent by London merchants concerning shipment and sale goods, and warrants seeking restitution from debtors. Papers are accompanied by several clippings relating to various subjects removed from different newspapers and periodicals of the late nineteenth century, and a large leather wallet, ca. 1810, once in the possession of James W. Bleecker and used to store a number of the land and legal papers now constituting the James W. Bleecker papers.
