Land Book C
Transcribed and Compiled
by: Linda Herman
The Land petitions in the following pages have been transcribed from the Nineteenth Report of the Department of Public Records and Archives of Ontario, 1930 and the Twentieth Report of the Department of Public Records and Archives of Ontario, 1931 by Alexander Fraser, LL.D. which were printed By Order of The Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
Originally the land petitions compiled by Alexander Fraser were in reports Seventeen to Twenty of the Public Records and Archives of Ontario. In this series they are compiled into four volumes as follows:
Land Book A 17th February, 1787 - 25th June, 1790
Land Book B 25th August, 1790 - 7th April, 1797
Land Book C 11th April, 1797 20th December, 1797
Land Book D 22nd December, 1797 13th July, 1798
The petitions have been arranged by month, alphabetized, cross referenced and indexed.
The original records were handwritten, and therefore mistakes in transcription are always possible (by the land clerk, by the original transcriber or by the present compiler). As well spelling varied greatly and you may find individuals you are looking for under a variety of spellings. If in doubt, you will need to consult the original records.
You may also notice some none traditional spellings in this volume such as "serjeant" rather than "sergeant". I have retained the spellings that were used by Alexander Fraser in the reports for the Department of Public Records and Archives of Ontario.
