Mary Coffin Starbuck account book

  • Fonds
  • [Microfilmed before 1994] (originally created 1662-1732)

Fonds consists of a microfilmed account book. Despite the name earlier assigned to the volume, it contains all of the family's dealings - not only the transactions of Mary Coffin Starbuck but also subsequent generations - with Aboriginal customers, labourers, and whalemen between the 1680s and the 1750s. It documents in remarkable detail the evolution of the economic relationships between the Aboriginal peoples and the colonists from a period of early European settlement almost to the time when the local Indigenous community was destroyed by disease.
