Following the destruction of public records by fire in the Court House (Old State House) in 1747, the Massachusetts General Court directed the provincial secretary to record in his office the 1629 and 1691 charters, with the commissions of the governor, lieutenant governor, justices of the Superior Court, and his own, per Orders 1747-48, c 182 (Dec. 11, 1747). Starting with these transcriptions, the state secretary (known as such from 1780), as part of his responsibility as record keeper for Massachusetts, continued to maintain a running record of copies of official documents that were the responsibility of his office, including those he attested, those part of administration of oaths, and those recording information on public appointees. As record keeping became more voluminous and the secretary's office more specialized over time, specific types of records were maintained in their own series, as indicated below
