NFGenWeb Crown Land Grant Index
Fortune Bay Region - Harbour Breton District
Messieur's Cove (Mercer Cove or Mercer's Cove), Brunet Island
The index and document file was rebuilt after many records were destroyed in the great St. John's fire in the 1890's. Some records are missing completely and others are duplicated. The Re-reg. and Orig-reg. notes in the info column refer to this. Look at all the records in a District or Region as many of these landowners had pieces of land in several areas, not just the town you know your family came from.

The information was transcribed by CHERYL McGREGOR ~ January 2002. While I have tried to be careful, there could be errors - my errors, interpretive errors or errors existing in the actual document.
