Rhode Island Historical Society Collections, Vol. 16 free pdf Excerpt from Rhode Island Historical Society Collections, Vol. 16: January, 1923 The two volumes of early Rhode Island Court Records, recently printed by the Rhode Island Historical Society, throw much light upon early colonial life and customs, as well as upon the legal procedure of the time. In the case of William Almy vs. Richard Morris in 1649, the damages were placed at 100 marks, showing that at that time the mark was used as a money of account in this colony. The mark at this time in England was used similarly, being considered equal to 160 pennies or 13 s. 6 d. Shakespeare uses the mark in this sense. The usual money of account in New England was pounds, shillings and pence, but currency was very scarce, and Indian wampum peage was often used. The value of wampum fluctuated from time to time and from place to place. In 1655 the Court fixed the rate of exchange as six beads per penny for white wampum and three per penny for "black merchantable." In 1658 the rate was specified as eight per penny, but it had been reduced again to six per penny by 1660.
