William Patterson Account Books, 1777-1830, Baltimore, Maryland

MS. 904

 

These four volumes and the will of William Patterson (1752-1835) relate to the merchant and shipping activities of this prominent Baltimorean. Receipt books chronicle hundreds of items ranging through merchant shipping matters, plantation affairs, services performed, the education of his children, ground rents, and debts owed to estates. The preface to Patterson's will, written in 1827, details his life from birth in County Donegal, Ireland, his rise in the shipping business in Philadelphia and the West Indies, through his arrival in Baltimore during 1778 and investments in real estate, and eventual founding of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
