Manuscripts of the New York Council Minutes from 1674 to 1775, during British colonial rule. Accompanying each manuscript volume is a typescript calendar taken from the Calendar of Council Minutes, 1668-1783, from the Calendar of Historical Manuscripts. As noted in the Calendar of Council Minutes, 1668-1783 (New York State Library) (1902), the legislative, judicial and executive functions were all exercised by the Council at the beginning of British rule. Not until 1691 did the Council become a legislative body and coordinate with the New York Assembly.
