Summary:     This series contains copies of survey plats drawn by the Surveyor General of the United States for the Territory and State of Florida.  The survey plats were collated into the Florida counties that contained the township/range listings that were the subjects of the survey.  The forty-four counties represented in this series were all created in the nineteenth century with the exception of Bay (1913).  There are two counties missing, i.e. Franklin, andLiberty.

    Some maps cover specific areas, such as land grants.  Some maps also contain a table of the area of land, meanders (bearings and distances) of natural boundaries (shorelines, etc.), information concerning when and by whom the survey was done, and sometimes notes relating to the sale and/or disposition of land within the township as well as land set aside for use by the United States War and Navy departments. This series has much of the same information as Series 617 but it has been organized into the counties and not in Township and Range form.
