List of Grants, Patents & Charters (Sorted by Date)

Just because these parcels of land were issued as Grants, Patents and Charters does not mean they actually existed or were settled under that name. Many of the New York Patents and New Hampshire Grants were for the same parcels of land, sometimes under the same name, more often under another one. Other land was issued under a name already being used in another part of the state, further confusing the situation. The result was a major dispute over who actually owned the land and by what name is was called. Most of the Vermont Charters were an attempt to straighten out the property dispute, then to distribute the remaining land. Vermont recognized many of the New Hampshire grants because they were usually town-sized, already settled and issued before New York issued their own patent,. Many of the New York patents were NOT town-sized, but were irregular pieces of land that usually didn't take into account the topography of the patent, therefore rendering it as unsuitable for settlement as is.
