      Evidence for Children
      Petition of wife 1817: 3 children

      John Simpson purchased Lot 64 in 1800. His son George inherited the lot and was eventually granted Lot 65.

      John's brother William was granted the right to improve the lower half of Lots 65 and 66, and conveyed the land without right. He had traded the lot for a lot on the Digdeguash, a lot to which the conveyor didn't have clear title either. After his death in 1815, William's wife petitioned for a grant of the land that they had improved at Digdeguash.
    • Lot 64

      Granted to Matthew Lymburner
      Improved by William Simpson
      Conveyed to David Mulloy [No Malloy/Mulloy in the first two Indexes. See Andrew Clendenin petition]
      Conveyed to Harris Hatch

      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

Secondly If the reservations Attended to were taken off those lands, would soon be applied for, taken up & Peopled, thereby strengthening a frontier settlement, add security to the present inhabitants, and open a door to provide lands for a number of Families who have had no provision made for them altho resident in the Parishes as aforesaid for fifteen to twenty five Years past
