Land Grant from the Creeks and Seminoles to Thomas Browne

On March 1, 1783, several “Kings and Warriors” representing Upper Creek, Lower Creek and Seminole towns affixed their “Names and family Marks” to a document granting British Indian Agent Thomas Browne substantial territory west of St. Augustine, Florida.

These family marks (see excerpt below) are drawings that represent Creek and Seminole clans. Visit the Significant Documents page to learn more.
