There is certainly much to talk about concerning this little-known resource.

Concerning the muster, what lots are being talked about? Where are "Coxes Lakes?" Where is "New Lake?"  Why is Paspébiac listed as one of the townships? Is this list consistant with other lists? There are obviously other questions to be raised, as well.

The authorizing documents lay out very clear categories for eligibilty for Crown Land Grants.  I'd be interested in hearing your reaction to the categories, or anything else about these documents.

Please also consider cross-posting to Raymond Garrett's board on this topic.

Thanks.

Shocked Previous to this document, I've had email exchanges with historians in their own field of research. I was informed at one time that the amount of land that one of my ancestors had aquired [McCombs of Niagara aquired from Hainer at 'Twelve Mile Creek'] was originally a Loyalist piece of crown land and that the amount of land that the Loyalist had been allotted was proof that he was a Loyalist and a so-called "choosen man." So it has stuck in my mind that their was a correlation between the amount of land allotted and the Loyalists per say. This document is superb in that it precisely tells us what proportion of land each entitled person was to receive.
