The original Pugets Sound Agricultural Company came into being in 1839 as a subsidiary branch of the Hudson'sBay Company in response to the intended private Oregon Beef andTallow Company. It functioned primarily in the Cow lits Valley and the Puget Sound area to the north of the Columbia River. Its purpose was partly to victual the fur trade establishments and also the nascent and burgeoning communities of the region. Its initial deed of settlement was dated December 23, 1840 and was first printed in 1912.
