      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 Grant 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

Memorialist's Father had five Hundred Acres of Land in the lately escheated Grant to John Curry Esquire and others, under which plea your Memorialiist has cultivated and improved a Meadow for fourteen years past, immediately in Rear of Lots lately surveyed for Andrew Sutherland and Hector and George Morrison, on which He cuts annually from eight to ten Tons of Hay. He has also erected on the Waweig River on the High Road leading from Saint Andrews to Fredericton, a Saw Mill, Grist Mill, and Carding Mill, all of which are of great public utility. Memorialist therefore prays that your Excellency will be pleased to Grant Him two Hundred Acres of Land in the Rear of Morrison's & Sutherland aforesaid to cover said Meadow and three Hundred Acres more in the Northwestern Gore of Curry's Grant aforesaid, being in Rear of Lots lately surveyed for William McKay and John H Armstrong, which Land is now in a Wilderness State, but should his Memorial be complied with, He possesses the Means, and it is his Intentionn forthwith to improve the same by Himself & Sons, the oldest of which is now nearly seventeen years of Age- and has not bargaind for the Sale or Transfer of the Land applied for to any persons or persons whatsoever

      Memorialist would apply for the whole five hundred Acres in one place, but the Land in the Neighborhood of the Meadow is totally unfit for Cultivation, and as the two Spots asked for are both on the Western Side of the Digdeguash River and in the Vicinity of each other, He humbly hopes his Request may be complied with, And As inn Duty bound will ever pray

      Gristmills of Charlotte County, New Brunswick, by Harry Martin, St. Stephen, N. B.

      Presented March 1968

      4. Connick Mill

      This mill, located on the Waweig River, a short distance upstream from the old Strang Road Bridge (now derelict) seems to have been built by James and Samuel in 1802. In December 1821, James sold his interest to Samuel, and Samuel's will registered on November 5, 1835 reads as follows: I give and bequeath to my sons Thomas and Samuel my saw and gristmill, above and near the Waweig River." The sale of this mill by young Samuel to Thomas K. Connick, with all rights and privileges on the western side of the Waweig River, upon the payment of twenty-five pounds, is registered at St. Andrews under date of January 7, 1844.

      The old Connick family burial lot, with its decorative red granite monument, is located on a knoll a short distance from the old mill site. In 1955 a millstone was raised from the bed of the Waweig River, for Mr. Percy Bailey of Oak Bay. It seems that this stone had been pushed a short distance downstream from the site of the Connick Mill by floods and heavy ice at low tides. This stone now rests on the front lawn of Mr. Bailey's old place at Oak Bay, now owned by Mrs. Rolf C. Syvertsen (Fig. 2).

      The following is an excerpt from a letter, dated December 10, 1962, addressed by Mr. Percy S. Bailey of 10224 134th Street, Edmonton, Alberta, to Miss Ray Cawley, St, Stephen, N.B.:

      "As for the millstone, which I presume still lies where it was placed in front of my old house at Oak Bay, here is the story. I spotted it one day as it lay in the bed of the Waweig River, just above the upper bridge on the cross road leading from Highway No. 1 to Waweig, and only a short distance from the Youth Camp of the United Church.

      "The stone was the last remaining trace, but my good friend William Nixon, who grew up in the neighborhood, remembered having heard from old people, that once there had been a gristmill at the narrows above the bridge.

      "When I looked at this weighty memento of the past I realized it was a considerable job to get it out of its resting place. However the undertaking proved of no great difficulty to my good neighbours, Joseph and Herbert Richardson, for one summer afternoon, to my surprise and satisfaction, they delivered it in my front yard, where it became an object of interest to our many visitors.

      "The origin of this stone has been a subject for speculation. It is known, however, that when our Loyalist forefathers came to settle in Nova Scotia, of which our province was a part at the time, they received tools and other equipment from Britain. Included were millstones to grind their wheat, quarried and finished in Scotland It is indeed quite possible that this stone is one of these. I hope someone may take the trouble some day to determine if it is actually of Caledonian rock.

      "The late Mr. Arthur Ganong was much interested, and we discussed some things that might be done. His idea was that it might be set up somewhere as a monument, with a bronze plaque upon it, bearing the names of the Loyalist members of the several associations who settled in our county.

      "One time a lady wished to buy it for the floor of her patio, but I felt it deserved a better fate, so I did not part with it. When I sold my place to Mr. Alton Cameron, we agreed that the stone, while remaining where it was, should continue in my ownership. I presume that it is still where it was when I left Oak Bay. I should be very glad to dispose of it if an organization, say the Historical Society, should undertake to make use of it. For some worthy public purpose I would be glad to cooperate in any way possible.

      Percy S. Bailey"
