THE CITY SEAL
As it appeared prior to 1827



The City Seal was adopted by ''An Ordinance to
Establish the City Seal," passed January 2, 1823, which
provides "That the design hereto annexed, as sketched
by John R. Penniman, giving a view of the City, be the
device of the City Seal; that the motto be as follows,
to wit: 'Sicut patribus sit Deus nobis'; and that the
inscription be as follows: — 'Bostonia condita, A.D.
1630. Civitatis regimine donata, A.D. 1822.'" The
motto is taken from 1 Kings, viii, 57: ''God be with
us as He was with our fathers."

The seal as it first appeared is shown above.

The seal as it was afterwards changed, and has ever
since continued to be used, was first shown on page 221
of the volume of laws and ordinances, commonly known
as the "First Revision," pubUshed in 1827, and is
estabUshed as the City Seal at the present time by
Revised Ordinances of 1914, Chapter 1, Section 5,
which provides that "The seal of the City shall be
circular in form; shall bear a view of the City; the
motto 'SicuT Patribus Sit Deus Nobis,' and the
inscription, 'Bostonia Condita, A.D. 1630. Civitatis
Regimine Donata A.D. 1822,' as herewith shown."

The seal as changed in 1827 is shown on the opposite
page.

ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON.



THEjRoyal Patent incorporating the Governor and
Company of Massachusetts Bay in New England passed
the seals March * 4, 1628-29. At a General Court, or
Meeting of the Company, on August * 29 of that year it
was voted "that the Government and patent should be
settled in New England." To that end Governor Win-
throp led the Puritan Exodus in 1630. Soon after his
arrival at Salem on June * 12, 1630, he proceeded with a
large following to Charlestown, where a plantation had
been established the summer before. The Assistants
held three Courts at Charlestown in the interval, August
* 23 to September * 28, inclusive. At their meeting
on September * 7, they ''ordered that Trimountaine
shall be called Boston; Mattapan, Dorchester; and the
towne upon Charles River, Waterton." Thus Shawmut
of the Indians was named Boston, probably out of grati-
tude to the Merchants of Boston in Lincolnshire, who
had subscribed generously to the stock of the Company.

In the latter part of August, Governor Winthrop
with the patent chose Boston as his abiding place.
The first ''Court" held in Boston was a "General Court"
on October * 19, "for establishing of the government."
On October * 3, 1632, Boston was formally declared
to be "the fittest place for publique meetings of any
place in the Bay."

Boston was the first town in Massachusetts to become
a city. It was incorporated February 23, 1822, by
St. 1821, c. 110, adopted by the voters March 4, 1822.
This act was revised by St. 1854, c. 448; amended by
St. 1885, c. 266 and again by St. 1909, c. 486.

The neck of land called Boston, still called Boston
Proper, contained perhaps 700 acres of land, judging
from the 783 acres shown by the official survey of 1794.
(In the interval 1630-37, Boston acquired jurisdiction
over most of the territory now included in Chelsea,
Winthrop, Revere, East Boston, Brookline, Quincy,
Braintree, Randolph and Holbrook, besides certain
islands in the harbor.) From 1637 till May 13, 1640,

* Old Style.



ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 5

when ''Mount WooUaston" was set off as Braintree,
Boston exercised jurisdiction over a territory of at least
40,000 acres. Within its present limits there are 30,598
acres, including flats and water.

Since 1640, grants of land have been made to Boston
by the General Court as follows: (1) October * 16, 1660,
1,000 acres ''for the use of a free schoole, layd out in
the wildernesse or North of the Merimake River" (in
Haverhill), in 1664. (2) June * 27, 1735, in abatement
of Province Tax, three townships, each six miles square,
or 69,120 acres in all. These townships later became
the Towns of Charlemont, Colrain, and Pittsfield.
Boston sold its interest in them on June * 30, 1737, for
£3,660. (3) June 26, 1794, a township of land in
Maine (23,040 acres) "to build a public hospital." This
tract was sold by the City April 6, 1833, for $4,200.

Muddy River was set off as the Town of Brookline
on November * 13, 1705, and Rumney Marsh was set
off as the Town of Chelsea January * 8, 1739.

The principal annexations of territory included within
the present limits of the City of Boston have been made
as follows :

(1) Noddle's Island, by order of Court of Assistants, March
* 9, 1636-37. (2) South Boston set off from Dorchester March
6, 1804, by St. 1803, c. 111. (3) Washington Village set off
from Dorchester May 21, 1855, by St. 1855, c. 468. (4) Rox-
bury January 6, 1868, by St. 1867, c. 359, accepted September
9, 1867. Roxbury received its name by order of the Court of
Assistants October * 8, 1630. It was incorporated as a city
March 12, 1846, by St. 1846, c. 95, accepted March 25, 1846.
(5) Dorchester January 3, 1870, by St. 1869, c. 349, accepted
June 22, 1869. It received its name September * 7, 1630, by
order of the Court of Assistants. (6) Brighton January 5, 1874,
by St. 1873, c. 303, accepted October 7, 1873. Set off from
Cambridge as the Town of Brighton February 24, 1807, by St.
1806, c. 65. (7) Charlestown January 5, 1874, by St. 1873, c.
286, accepted October 7, 1873. Settled July * 4, 1629. It was
incorporated a City February 22, 1847, by St. 1847, c. 29,
accepted March 10, 1847. (8) West Roxbury January 5, 1874,
by St. 1873, c. 314, accepted October 7, 1873. It was set off
from Roxbury and incorporated a Town May 24, 1851, by St.
1851, c. 250. (9) Hyde Park January 1, 1912, by St. 1911, c.
469, and 583, accepted November 7, 1911. Incorporated a
Town April 22, 1868.

INTRODUCTION.



INTKODUCTION.



As a public document The Municipal Register is
as old as the City of Boston itself, the first volume
having been published in 1821, a year before the govern-
ment of Boston changed from Town to City. Up to

1840 the title of the volume was: The Rules and Orders
of the Common Council. From 1821 to 1829 the docu-
ment contained merely a register of the City Council
and a list of the officers.

In 1829 the City Charter was published as a part of
the volume, and in 1830 the Acts relating to Boston,
also the ordinances, were added. In 1832 the size of
the volume was increased by the addition of an index
to the contents. The volume published, in 1822 con-
tained fifteen pages and for the year 1840 there were
eighty-eight pages, including three pages of index.

The title The Municipal Register was adopted in

1841 when the publication became more ambitious,
incorporating in its pages the Rules and Orders of the
Common Council, joint rules, ordinances of the City,
statutes of the Commonwealth relating to the City, a
list of the public schools, the City Government of 1841,
the committees and departments (consisting at that
time of the treasury, law, police, health, public land
and buildings, lamps and bridges, fire, and public
charitable institutions), and a list of the ward officers.

From 1842 to 1864 it also contained a list of the
members of preceding City Governments, a necrological
record of those members, the Jatest ordinances and the
special statutes relating to the City. In 1851 a list of
the annual orators was added, and in 1853 a map of



10 MUNICIPAL REGISTER.

the City and the Rules of the Board of Aldermen. In
1876, statistics of registration and voting were included,
carried from 1879 to 1924 in tabulated form.

From 1889 to 1896, inclusive, The Municipal
Register also contained a compilation of the Charter
with the revision of 1854 and the amendments of 1885
and thereafter. The Amended Charter of 1909 (15
pages) was added in 1910, and the various changes
since that year have been indicated by footnotes.

In 1924 the important amendments to the Charter
enacted in that year (10 pages) were included.

The 1925 volume contained, as the latest addition,
descriptions of the ward boundaries as fixed for the 22
new wards (formerly 26) in December, 1924.

Since 1925, the Register has been gradually reduced
to its present size; primarily, because of the issuance
of the Boston Year Book, a more ambitious publication,
in 1925 and 1926, and secondly for the purpose of
economy.

after the first Monday of February, nineteen hundred and ten, under the
provisions of this and the three following sections. The city council may,
subject to the approval of the mayor, from time to time establish such
offices, other than that of city clerk, as it may deem necessary for the con-
duct of its affairs and at such salaries as it may determine, and abolish

tinues to serve during the period of such extension.
