Public Vendue notice of Nathaniel Dickinson published in the Hampshire Gazette

This advertisement for real estate back taxes would have served as a legal notice to the owner. When real estate taxes on a piece of land were not paid, the town was allowed to advertise for potential buyers. Anyone who paid the taxes and accrued interest could take over ownership of the land. In this case, a piece of land in Conway had five years of unpaid taxes and was owned by a non-resident. The tax collector issued this notice that enough land would be sold to cover the cost, if payment was not received by a certain date.
