Records in these collections relate chiefly to David Pingree (1795-1863) and his descendants. Pingree held substantial interests in maritime trade through the first half of the 19th century. He owned or partially owned dozens of merchant ships, which traded across China, India, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. In the 1840s, Pingree began purchasing land in Maine and New Hampshire, including around Mount Washington. His descendants continue to manage these lands. These papers were digitized with the support of the Pingree heirs.
