There is a pasted-on handwritten note on the front pastedown which states, "This Bible was the Property of My Grandfather, Saml. Canby and presented to me by My Mother, M Mortons, Mary M Dillon." On the rear blank leaf is a printed ownership stamp with the handwritten name of Saml. Canby on it. On the front pastedown of the second volume is written, "Samuel Canby Sen to Margaret Morton now the property of Mary M Dillon." Midway through the second volume there are bound-in pages 677 to 680 (out of order) which contains printed blank pages to be used to record the Family Record. These four pages have been filled, recording the births and deaths of the various Canby family members starting in 1682 to the 1880s (in different hands). The first page is headed "An account of the Canby family;" the second page is "Account of the Shipley family." The third page records "Samuel and Frances Canby's Children," and the fourth page contains records from another Canby family Bible. The covers are worn and detached with attempted tape repair to hinges.
