      Humbly Sheweth

      That the lands whereon the first numbered class are settled was sett off and a part by John Jones Esquire the deputy Land surveyor in seventeen hundred eighty four, to make up the allowance for Women and children after giving to the Head of each Family, one Hundred acres on the Rivers and Bays anove the mouth of the River St Croix

      In a few weeks after Mr Jones run out a sheet leading from the rear of the front lotts at the Head of Oak Point Bay Westerly and marked off a line of lotts on each side thereof for a number of Gentlemen from whom most of the present settlers became purchased either direct or from their assigns paying in some instances at the rate of five Hundred pounds New Brunswick Currency purchase.

      It so happened that in October of the same Year Sir John Wentworth his Majesty's surveyor General of Woods for North American was pleased to make a reservation of forty six thousand acres of Land in the district of St Stephen and Saint David except a small strip in the Northerly and Westerly part of Saint Andrews from prehending the lotts as aforesad within the limits thereof for the purpose of preserving to His Majesty's Use the Pine Timber standing in the Vallies between the Ridges of Hard Wood Land, thereby presenting Your Honors Petitioners from obtaining their expected titles.

      The second class are seated on the Gore west of and between the Cape Ann Association Grat and that to Nehemiah Marks Esquire and others. Moore & Brooks by Purchase from Peter Christie Esquire - Against several of the others who expected to obtain Titles there are prosecutions for Trespass now pending in His Majesty's Supreme Court instituted y the Attorney General.

      The Third class have possession and improvements on the Wawig, Par of which were, by letters licensed to Benjamin Bradford, the others sett down under, encouragement from His Majesty's Assistant deputy Surveyor for that district.

      The schedule of the Parishes of St Stephen and St David transmitted to Your Honor by Captain Frink will shew Your Honor what Progress they have made in Cultivation / the third Class expected who are within the district of Saint Andrews/ by a reference to the Title of Crown Tenants at Will.

      Your Honors Petitioners beg leave to State that, the original Object in making the reservations aforesaid hath long since ceased to exist- The masts suited to the Royal Navy were cut and taken off under the Contract of Messrs Hunter and Robinson by their Agents Messr Blacks, The Milling business and the call for square Timber for the British Markets since the Baltic Sea hath been shut up caused the other timber to be felled which was near the shores, but such as had not, hath been killed by the fires during the last & preceeding Years, that there remains at this present, no timber which can ever be an object for Government use, and those about their particular seatins never aforded any Pine Timber, being hard wood Lands

      The late President Ludlow, but a few weeks before his death directed a similar application to be made thro him giving an apearance that he would transmit the same to the Secretary of State for His Majesty's most gracious will and Pleasure therein.

      To Your Honors Protection the Petitioners hereunder humbly submith themselves & should any doubts arise in Your Honots breast as to the facts sett forth, they bed their Petition may be referr'd to the Justices of the General Session & the Grand Jury of the County of Charlotte with directions for them to certify the situation of the reservations and that of the Present applicants

      Daniel F. Johnson : Volume 10 Number 1463
      Date June 1 1843
      County Charlotte
      Place Saint Andrews
      Newspaper St. Andrews Standard
      Friday 19th inst, a boy about 5 years old s/o William THOMSON of Tower Hill (Charlotte Co.) was accidently burnt to death during the absence of his parents. It appears that the father was at work in the field some distance from the house and the mother had gone to the neighbors after raking the fire, closing the outside door and leaving her three children in the kitchen. When the mother returned after a short absence, she found her oldest son lying dead at the gate a few feet from the house. The unfortunate lad had appearently gone to the fire place and his cotton clothes ignited. In his endeavors to reach his father or neighbors, he became exhausted and fell when his mother found him nearly consumed by flames.
