Record, specialty, simple contract
Contracts of record are such as are declared and adjudicated by courts of competent jurisdiction, or entered on their records, including judgments, recognizances, and statutes staple. These are not properly speaking contracts at all, though they may be enforced by action like contracts.
Specialties, or special contracts, are contracts under seal, such as deeds and bonds.
All others are included in the description "simple" contracts; that is, a simple contract is one that is not a contract of record and not under seal; it may be either written or oral, in either case, it is called a parol contract, the distinguishing feature being the lack of a seal.
