Ainge Family Papers, George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives, Bowdoin College Library, Brunswick, Maine.

The Ainge family centers around a late-18th-century gentleman, Alexander Ainge, once a watchmaker, later a broker in London, England. Other family members include his brother, William, of Lincoln's Inn; his wife Elizabeth Beard; and William's sons, William and Edward, who were adopted and taken into business by their uncle. No birth or death dates are available.

Documents, including promissory notes, marriage settlements, accounts, indentures, etc. relating to the Ainge family (1766-1833). Also included are financial accounts of British colonial agents in Jamaica [1794-1803?] and of a military excursion into Holland (1801); no member of the Ainge family is named in these.

Series Description:
