Abstract:
These are the briefs of titles which accompany many of the title papers assembled during the 1860s and 1870s. This was when the City of Philadelphia acquired most of the initial properties which comprised Fairmount Park. These briefs were prepared in order for the Fairmount Park Commission to be assured that a good and clean title was assumed by them. In most cases, the briefs cover the entire history of the property from the patent granted by William Penn or his commissioners until the acquisition by the Fairmount Park Commission. Generally, these files contain the various deeds by which the City of Philadelphia acquired property, not only for the main park system surrounding the Schuylkill River and the Wissahickon Creek, but also acquisitions for some of the smaller parks under the Fairmount Park Commission?s jurisdiction.

Biography/History

Researchers investigating the history of Fairmount Park properties should be familiar with the briefs of titles which accompany many of the title papers assembled during the 1860s and 1870s. This was when the City of Philadelphia acquired most of the initial properties which comprised Fairmount Park. These briefs were prepared in order for the Fairmount Park Commission to be assured that a good and clean title was assumed by them. In most cases, the briefs cover the entire history of the property from the patent granted by William Penn or his commissioners until the acquisition by the Fairmount Park Commission. The conveyancers, attorneys and others who prepared these briefs consulted not only the public records of the Recorder of Deeds and the clerks of the various courts, but occasionally had access to the original deeds and mortgages which had been passed through the ownership of the land. Many of these deeds, mortgages and other instruments were eventually given to the Park Commission at the time of the property?s acquisition. Others were retained by the former owner for various reasons. In many cases, the compilers of the briefs consulted documents which have never been recorded. Indeed, the Fairmount Park Title Papers contain an unrecorded deed from 1686 and several other unrecorded instruments from the early 1700s.

The Brief of Title generally is a detailed accounting of the history of the property ownership. It will list the date of the transfer, the dimensions of the property, the date of acknowledgment, and the date of recording and the book and page in which the recorded instrument may be found. Occasionally, the consideration will also be mentioned. If there are any court proceedings relating to the property, then the docket entries will be reproduced. Any changes in ownership through death, inheritance, marriage, et al, will also be noted. The compiler of the Brief often is mentioned, as well as an opinion from a lawyer that the Brief as presented illustrates a clean title to the property.

There are over 250 different Briefs of Titles contained with the Title Papers of Fairmount Park. In addition, three briefs of title to Fairmount Park estates acquired before the creation of the Fairmount Park Commission have also been noted in this bibliography. Since many properties within East and West Park were subdivided during the 1850s and 1860s, the briefs concerning these properties cover only the short period of time of subdivision with a note referring the user to a more comprehensive Brief. There exist six different published Briefs in these files. These cover the Belmont Estate, Lansdowne No. 3, Mantua Farm, Mifflin Land Association, part of the Landsdowne Land Company property, and a section of the lower Wissahickon Valley. Duplicate copies have emerged, often with unique notations continuing the title from the printed brief to the 1870s. 1

By the time the Fairmount Park Commission and the City expanded the boundaries of the Wissahickon Park and began to acquire additional properties elsewhere along Cobbs Creek, Tacony Creek, and Pennypack Creek, the need for these detailed Briefs of Title was replaced by the purchase of title insurance from a reputable title insurance carrier. Therefore, most properties acquired by the Fairmount Park Commission after 1885 will contain the title insurance policy rather than a brief of title.

Local historians will find that this bibliography and index of the Briefs of Titles contained within the Fairmount Park Commission Title Papers will assist greatly in their understanding of the forces which shaped the land prior to its acquisition for park purposes.

Jefferson M. Moak Archivist II

1The history of the printed Brief of Title has yet to be written. It first appears in the early 19th century and becomes a staple during the period 1850-1880. Over 400 separate published Briefs have been located in various repositories in Philadelphia. Many of these also contain manuscript notations updating the brief past its publication date. The rise of the title insurance industry reduced the need for the published briefs for insurance purposes. None have been found to have been published after 1902.

Scope and Contents

Generally, these files contain the various deeds by which the City of Philadelphia acquired property, not only for the main park system surrounding the Schuylkill River and the Wissahickon Creek, but also acquisitions for some of the smaller parks under the Fairmount Park Commission?s jurisdiction. Often the file will include deeds for the property prior to the park acquisition, some as early as the late 17th century. Prior to 1880, many properties are accompanied by a brief of title and a report on the searches for liens through the dockets of the various local, state and federal courts in Philadelphia. The brief of title traces the title from the earliest patent to the park?s condemnation and purchase. After 1880, most purchases were insured by a title insurance company and a copy of the policy was placed in the file. Occasionally, the files may contain miscellaneous correspondence, maps and other documents relating to the history of the property.

The files are arranged into different series by park and then alphabetically by the name of the grantor. Each series has a small scope and content note that gives the dates of acquisition. These are not the dates of the materials. Also in the scope and content note is the law department title Numbers for additional acquisitions when needed.

Each file may include up to three separate folders in the boxes and an additional map folder in the oversized collections.

Note: the deed to Cedar Grove in West Park is a deed of gift of the house itself and not to the property upon which it presently stands. It was originally located in the Frankford area and later moved to the west side of the Schuylkill River.

The Law Department handled most of the acquisitions for park properties prior to the creation of the Fairmount Park Commission in 1867 and again during the 20th century. Most of the deeds relating to park properties, especially outside of the main park areas surrounding the Schuylkill River and Wissahickon Creek, appear within the records of the Law Department. These are noted in the list of properties above. Other Fairmount Park properties whose titles are found in the Law Department, Deeds to City Property (Record Series 63.5) are Art Museum, Law Department title umber 86-C-2, League Island Park number 93-M - 94-M, Lemon Hill number 104-C, Lincoln Drive & Mermaid Lane number 105-W, Marconi Park number 98-0 - 98-T, Sedgley number 104-B, Strawberry Mansion Bridge number 104-D, Fairmount Park extensions (miscellaneous) number 102-H - 103-Q; 104-E.

There is also a printout of a database of the Fairmount Park Commission Title Papers available at the archive. It is organized alphabetically according to the name of the park and the name of the grantor who sold the land to the park. It consists of the following fields: Last Name; First Name; Box Number; Map Drawer Number (Note: These numbers refer to those map cabinets located in the Transit Section of the map cabinets); Location of the Property; Lot size; Park (East Park, West Park, Wissahickon, etc.); Subdivision within the Park, if applicable, Brief of Title (Yes if one exists or no); Dates covered by the Brief of Title; Dates covered by any continuation of the Brief of Title; Searches (This indicates whether the file contains any searches or title insurance.); Deeds (Yes or no); Mortgages (Yes or no); Other (This should indicate if there are any additional papers, other than deeds, mortgages or briefs of title in the file.); and Year (This is the year or years of acquisition by the Park Commission from this owner for this section of the Park.). When properties that do not have a Brief were entered into Archivist's Toolkit information from the database was used. On some of the properties where the information from the database was used there was no information in the location field and the phrase "No location given." was used. Also when there was no Lot Size given in the database "(blank)" was entered in Archivists' Toolkit. This only refers to the database and not the actual material.

There are some abbreviations and the dates are presented in many different formats. When Jefferson Moak recorded the dates and other information it is clear he worded it exactly as it appears in the documentation. This aspect was preserved when the finding aid was entered into Archivists' Toolkit.
