FORMATION OF WARDS. In 1683 the city of New York was divided into six wards, under the designation of “South,” “Dock,” “East,” “North,” “West,” and “Out” Wards. For map showing the boundaries of these wards see page 212 of Manual of Common Council for 1848.

The Montgomerie Charter, dated January 15, 1730, designates, in addi. tion to the above, the boundaries of the “ Montgomerie " Ward.

By an act of the colonial government, passed February 28, 1791, the wards are designated numerically from 1 to 7, and the bounds of each described.

By an act of the Legislature, passe: March 8, 1803, the wards are increased to nine, numerically designated, and boundaries described.

The Tenth Ward was erected from the Seventh by act of March 18, 1808.

The Eleventh and Twelfth Wards were formed, and the boundaries of all described, by an act passed April 25, 1825. (Chap. 195, Laws of 1825.)

13th Ward was erected from the 10th Ward, Act April 6, 1827.
