Business Accounts

George Washington kept a variety of business and household accounting records, including receipts, bills, invoices, waste books, journals of accounts, and ledger books of accounts. He used these to keep track of how much money he owed or was owed to him and to monitor how he spent his money. These documents provide detailed information about his financial dealings, such as earnings from shipping tobacco and other goods produced by his plantations; travel expenses to various taverns; and rent payments due from his tenants. Prices of many commodities (food, livestock, crops, household items) are recorded in these pages, as are transactions with a wide range of people, including men and women, large- and small-scale farmers, tradespeople, laborers, lawyers, businesspeople, mariners, free blacks, and enslaved people. The digital edition aims to make the business and budget files of US President George Washington accessible.

Family Accounts

The collection of inventories produced by an office of the Florentine state, called the Magistrati dei Pupilli. This office created in the late 14th century at the request of Florentine families. Due primarily to recurrent plague in Florence starting in mid-14th century families were unable to manage the wealthy estates of their minor relatives, who had inherited considerable assets upon the death of their benefactors. Families asked the state to take over. When the Office of Orphans took on the management of a minor’s estate, a packet of documents was created to record actions taken on the minor’s behalf.
