      He has explored the River Restook [Aroostook River at Grand Falls], where it is his Determination to settle and to erect a Grist Mill for the Accommodation of himself and those who intend accompanying him. He is forty six years of Age [1778], married and has six Children
      Robert Salter was born in Nova Scotia and has always resided there, and in New Brunswick. He has been for the last sighteen Months a licensed Teacher of a School in Saint Andrews parish; accompanied your first named Memorialist in exploring the Restook, and intends removing there immediately should his Application be complied with. He is forty eight [1776] years old, married and has six Sons and two Daughters

      That none of your Memorialists have ever received any Land from Government, but they are all able and it is their Intention should their Memorial be complied with to cultivate and improve the Land asked for forthwith, according to the Tenor of the Royal Instructions, and they have not directly or indirectly agreed for the Sale or transfer thereof, to any person or persons whatsoever.
      They therefore humbly request that your Honor will be pleased to grant to Leonard Bartlett Five hundred Acres of Land situate on the North Side of the Mouth of the three Mile Creek at its Confluence with the Restook River, and on the Eastern Side thereof, where He thinks there is a eligible Situation for a Grist Mill, of which privilege he wishes to obtain a Grant or such other Quantity as to your Honor may seem meet

      To John Simpson Three hundred Acres on the same Side of the Restook River, commencing about half a Mile above the upper Line of Leonard Bartletts Lots now applied for, and extending thence up stream
      To George Hitchings Three Hundred Acres joining the upper Line of the last Applicant John Sympson
      And to George Johnson and John Johnson each Two Hundred Acres adjoining the last Applicant, George Hitchings up Stream with such front on the River as to your Honor may seem fit
      And your Memorialists pray that Your Honor will be pleased to grant them the several Quantities asked for by them though they may be larger than usually given in Consequence of the very remote Situation of the Land applied for

      And Your Memorialists as in Duty bound, will ever pray

      There were two Simpson households in Township 8 [Lubec] in 1790, one headead by John Simpson, one by William Simpson. John was the only person in his household, while William's household had a male over 16 and 1 under 16. The male under 16 was likely William who married Mercy Cook. The head of household was also named William. So it is not unreasonable to conclude that William was the father of William and John.

      John Simpson to Hopley Yeaton Volume 1 Page 329
    • 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.

      The first baptized child on this list is given as a son of Joseph Simpson, while the remaining are sons of "Mr Simpson." As the last 6 were baptized on the same day, I imagine that they were all the children of the same Simpson.
