      The memorial of James Turner, David Eastman, Jonathan Greenlaw, Lachlan McCudy and others...

      Humbly sheweth

      That your Memorialists were of the number of those persons who during the war between Great Britain and her Colonies, left their possessions on account of their attachment to the British Government, and sheltered themselves and families from the rage of their enemies in His Majesty's Garrison then established at Penobscot...

      That previous to the Garrison's evacuation Penobscot the General there commanding agreeable to his instructions, directed to be made known to your Memorialists, that besides the Land allowed indiscriminately to all Loyalists desirous to settle in the bay of Passamaquaddie, those of the Penobscot association who had families should be allowed a certain proportion of Land for each woman and child to be laid out in the rear of the Land given to the Loyalists...

      That accordingly directions were given to the Surveyors who actually did lay out land for each woman and child belonging to the families of the Penobscot association and the Lots were drawn and assigned to each one.

      That numbers of those children now come to maturity and others concerned in the said Land have been and are still desirous to occupy and improve but have been much discouraged therefrom, as hitherto no Grant could be obtained to confirm the Possession- as also it having been represented to your Memorialists that certain persons now of the Association have applied for and allowed License to occupy a large portion of the Lands allotted to the families of your Memorialists

      Your Memorialists therefore beseech your Excellency a Grant of the Land agreeable to the original Survey...

      And as in Duty bound etc

      To His Honour Gabriel D Ludlow, Esquire President of the Province of New Brunswick &c &c

      The Memorial of Nichs Johnson and other Inhabitants of the parish of St. Andrews, and its vicinity, in the County of Charlotte. ---

      Humbly Seweth

      That your Memorialist in general are of the number of those Loyalist, who emigrated into this country at the peace with America in 1783, or their sons now of age, and were mostly comprised among those Loyalist denominated the Penobscot Association, who settled in and about Passamaquoddy bay, and were promised One hundred acres of lands for themselves, and Fifty for their wives, and for each child. ---

      That from various intervening impediments your Memorialist never received their full allotments of land which Government had at first given them good reason to expect would not have been delayed.

      That during this long lapse of time your Memorialist have laboured under great difficulties to maintain themselves, and bring up large families of children, who, by the divine blessing have increased to a pleasing degree, as Your Honor will perceive by the annexed list of them. ---

      That your Memorialist, stimulated by parental affection to provide for their offspring have anxiously sought for unoccupied lands whereon to form a settlement for themselves and families so that by their united endeavours they may be enabled to surmount their present hardships ---

      That your Memorialist are informed of a Tract of Land lying between this county and the Oromocto river commonly called Pleasant Ridge, being in a wilderness ungranted, which if secured to your Memorialist by a Grant, might answer all their claims as to quality, and they believe is a good quality, and calculated for a large settlement. ---

      Your Memorialist therefore humbly pray Your Honor will be pleased to Grant them such a portion of the above Tract of Land as may be sufficient for their accommodation and also reserve and lay out such portions of the same, as Your Honor may deem expedient for public purposes, as they with satisfaction look forward to a large and flourishing settlement there if their Memorial is compiled with, and Your Memorialist as in duty bound will ever pray ---
