30- and 300-Acre LAND GRANTS

For starters, here are four maps that show the relative positions of the 30- and 300-acre Land Grants given out in 1753 and 1763, respectively.

They are colour coded: 30-acre farm lot Ranges are in green and the 300-acre forest lot Divisions in red.

The First Map shows the Land Grants over laid with the position of communities within the area.

The Second Map shows the Land Grants with the various Ranges and Divisions named and an indication of the beginnings of the numbering system used to identify the location of specific lots.

The Third Map shows the numbering grids used for the 300-acre Divisions.

The Fourth Map shows the numbering grids used for the 30-acre Divisions.

To put these maps in the broader perspective, see the Lunenburg County Place Names Map.

These maps were created by use of CorelDraw and are based, in part, on data from
