Custodial history

Records were donated to the archives by C. Ruth Humphreys (nee McKinney), daughter of Ida Curry Clark and granddaughter of Hugh Herbert Clark. Records appear to have been gathered into a body by Ida Curry Clark, if not by her parents.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of records created or collected by two families related by marriage, the Clarks and Curries of Chinguacousy Township. Fonds includes correspondence, legal and land records, accounting ledgers, petitions to township councils, ephemera, copying and penmanship exercises, and photographs. Records largely relate to domestic affairs (including farming and exchanging of goods) and legal matters (especially land transactions and the settling of estates).

Records from both the Curry and Clark branches of the family were inherited by an ancestor, Ida Curry Clark. An appreciable part of the records on both sides date from before the intermarriage of the two families (when John Clark married Jane Curry). Because the records can readily be associated with one or another of the two branches, the fonds has been arranged into two series as follows:

Series 1: Curry family records
Series 2: Clark family records
