Description:
The Rhode Island Leased Oyster Bed Grounds Indenture (agreements) records consist of signed agreements with accompanying plot maps depicting leased oyster bed grounds primarily in the Providence River near Field's Point. References also made to beds near Starve Goat Island, Fuller's Lower Rocks, and Crook Dolphin.
