Abstract:

Ledger book kept from 1769-1776 by Boston, Mass. merchant and loyalist Gilbert Deblois records accounts with Boston residents and British Army and Naval officers for sundry goods, linen, fabric, and clothing. Of particular interest are the accounts with British Army and Naval officers during the Siege of Boston. The ledger was discontinued in 1776 with the evacuation of Boston and the removal of Gilbert Deblois to Halifax, Canada, however, entries were made by an anonymous person as late as 1788 upon the collection of outstanding debts. Daily cash book entries record the amount of cash received, 1773-1776. Also included is a petty debt record kept by George Deblois, Jr., 1788-1792, recording the sale of goods including fabric, ribbon, sundry items, and clothing to Boston residents including James Bowdoin, Jabez Hatch, David Cobb, Joseph Barrell, Thomas Handysyd Perkins, and Christopher Gore, among others.
