Thomas T. Williams owned and operated a general store in the Poplar section of Shrewsbury Township (now part of Deal and Ocean Township) at the corner of Poplar and Deal Roads. The daybook is a daily record of customer purchases made at this store. Each entry contains the customer’s name, items purchased, and quantity purchased. There are also entries about other types of transactions occurring at the store: catalog orders, orders placed on behalf of another person, and monies paid by the Township of Shrewsbury. Williams sold a wide range of goods in his store. Typical items included tea, muslin, candles, boots, eggs, butter, soap, nails, sugar.

The day book covers the period April 1842 – July 1844 inclusive. The end of the book contains a 19-page inventory of the store’s stock, as of March 26, 1849.

On March 29, 1849, $600 was received in part pay for one-half of Williams’ stock of goods in the store. This transaction was made with William W. Cook. The settlement of the invoice occurred on March 11, 1850. 

Note: The daybook contains 602 pages (1 volume) but contains no hand-written page numbers after page 550.
