      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

      To His Excellency Major General Sir Howard Douglas, Baronet, Lieutenant Governor and Commander in Chief of the Province of New Brunswick etc etc etc
      The Petition of John Bamford of saint David in the County of Charlotte
      Humbly sheweth:
      That your Petitioner is a British Subject born in New Hampshire while a British Province and has resided for the last twenty three years in the Parish of Saint David is Sixty years olf and has never received any Land from Government.
      That it is his intention and he has the means, should his Petition be complied with, to continue to cultivate and improve according to the tenor of the Royal Instructions, and has not directly nor indirectly agreed for the Sale or Transfer of the Land now asked for, to any person or persons whatsoever.

      That your Petitioner ever since his first settlement in Saint David aforesaid, has performed his duty to the best of his abilities as a British Subject in the Capacity of a Militia Man, Grand and Petit Juryman, and in every other manner in which he could manifest his Loyalty. That in the year one thousand eight hundred and twelve he obtained from Christopher Hatch Esquire Deputy Surveyor General of Woods a License of Occupation of One hundred Acres of Land, which is hereunto annexed on the range of Lots called the Humphrey Ridge Lyding between the rear line of Lots on the Western Side of Oak Bay and Marks Gran adjoining and lying South of Lot Number Sixteen now Occupied by David Kezer with a front of about fifty Rods
      That his improvements consist of a framed House and two Barns with about thirty Acres of cleared Land under Cultivation and fence and he follows farming entirely for a Livelihood
      That at the Time he purchased the License of Occupation he conceived the Deputy Surveyor had a undoubted right to give it to him. And had no intention whatever of Trespassing on the reserve Land and therefore trusts that the fines or purchase money in addition to the Grant fees may be as moderate as possible under the circumstances. And that your Excellency will be pleased to grant him the said hundred acres above described.
      And as in duty bound will ever pray.

      License & Permission is hereby Granted unto the sd JOhn Bamford during the pleasure of his Majesty's sd surveyor Genl of the WOods, to occupy & improve a certain tract of Land part of reserve Number two situate in the Parish of St Davids in sd County & Province being Lot Number - & bounded on the south by Lands Licensed to James Brown & Saml Beal? to the north by David Keyser's Lot, to the East by part of Lots Number 102 & 103 & running westerly Eight chains, containing by estimation One Hundred acres.

      Note: John Bamford lived at Balltown and went to New Brunswick about the time Samuel Johnson did. He is said to have been from Barrington, Strafford, New Hampshire. Thomas Johnson m Esther Tuttle (who later settled at Fryeburg, Oxford, Maine) is also from Barrington. Thomas and Esther are said to have had a son Samuel born about 1744. I have not been able to trace this Samuel Johnson.

      http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~sandrajoneshall/bamford/rbt-sarah.htm
      A historian of the Bamfords has this to say about John Bamford:
      Material by Sandra Jones Hall

      March 19, 1789 Robert Bamford of Barrington, (profession) husbandman sells to John Bamford of Barrington, (profession) tailor, 50 acres in Barrington.
      March 23, 1791 John Bamford of Barrington, (profession) tailor sells to Jonathan Cilley Esquire of Nottingham 50 acres in Barrington.
      ...
      John Bamford was born 4 March, 1764 in New Hampshire and died 19 December 1847 in New Brunswick, Canada. He married Mary Polly Averill 6 March 1794 in Maine. (from The Bamford Saga By Louise Bamford) Louise didn?t list John as the son of Robert Junior and thought he might be the son of Charles Junior because two of the sons of Charles Junior moved to Maine about the same time as John.. John named his sons John, James and Enoch so no Robert or Charles. I believe the land sale from Robert Junior to John indicates that they are father and son.

      Later that month [October 1802], about thirty settlers went to the Wiscasset jail to free the two [David and John Hutchens] by paying their fines. They also scouted the jail's security, for that evening armed Liberty Men marched into Wiscasset. Breaking open the jail, they liberated John Bumford of Balltown, who in a separate June 1802 trial, had been convicted on [Robert] Foye's testimony and sentenced to ten years hard labor for setting fire to a Tory's barn. Bumford and his liberators returned to the backcountry.

      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

Bradford Sons in Law Charles & Thadeus Libby with Joshua Coleman Built a Saw Mill on the stream Mr Bristie purchased the Mill of those three American - he has since sold the Mill to Thomas Connick and Samuel as bt the Land - I drew this agreement which was left in my hand by the Parits and is now offered as a Voucher in behalf o the two Connicks - Libbys or Coleman never got any thing for the Expenses or Labour nor did Bradford on Acct of the Mill but for the Land he got his debt of 1200$ paid by Samuel Connick
