"Return of Possession held in Conception Bay 1805"

Pages 22 - 42

On August 21, 1804, in an effort to help avoid frequent disputes regarding possession and rights of Fishing Rooms, Beaches, Flakes and land, Governor Erasmus Gower issued an order directing his Surrogates around the Island of Newfoundland to take an exact account of all Fishing Rooms, Wharves, Beaches, Flakes, etc… within 200 yards from the High Water Mark and register them in a book. The claims of every Merchant, Planter, and Boat Keeper to the land he occupied were to be clearly defined. This official Register of Fishing Rooms was to be admitted as evidence in all land claim disputes.

The following is a transcription of a surviving portion of Governor Gower's "Plantations Book." The transcriptions were done in the same format/style as was presented on the photocopies. Even though spelling and punctuation in some entries had obvious mistakes, we have transcribed them as they were in an effort to preserve the integrity of the original document. Thus [sic] has not been added to any spelling mistake. There was an instance where instead of Act Wm III, it was entered as Act Wm II and even this was left as was. After the work was transcribed, it was proof read and spaces were added between names in some of the transcriptions (Thos.Brown would become Thos. Brown) and this only happened with two people's transcriptions as everyone else added those spaces in.

Misc. Volume 13, Conception Bay Plantations Book - held at the Registry of Deeds and Companies, Confederation Building, PO Box 8700 Stn A, St. John's, NF A1B 4J6.
