Cityof Port Royal, Jamaica
INDEXED AND CARDED BY: national Geographic Society

This index has been prepared from hand written reproductions of plats
and deeds or patents to real estate, recorded before 1692 when
two-thirds of the city was drowned and buried by an unusually severe
earthquake. These records were later housed in the Record Office
in Spanish Town. The documents are fragmentary and the index is
necessarily incomplete. Spelling, punctuation and capitalization
are preserved in large part as -opied from the original documents.

The cards are filed alphabetically according to the name of the
land holder, L'.ultiple spellings applied to one name are indicated.
The date (or approximate date) of the transaction is recorded at the
top right-hand corner of plat and patent cards.

Plat numbers refer to number employed on the original records.
Numbered references to the Link Chart refer to a tentative chart
based on an under water survey by E. A. Link in 1956 plus additional
data from the 1959 Link National Geographic Society Smithsonian
Institution Expedition. For the chart and further information
see the National Geographic, February 1960, pages 151-183.
