One of the 5 deeds still around between English and Native American people, this deed, like the others, is written in language common in British law papers. It is odd that place names are called by Native American names. The payment to the Native Americans was 20 fadam. The deal was completed on July 22, 1667, several years before the first English settlers began to come to Deerfield, known then as Pocumtuck.
