NL GenWeb Crown Land Grant Index

Fortune Bay Region - St. Bernard's District

Bay de L'Argent

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 address to write to for copies of the actual Crown Land Grants is:

Department of Gov't Services and Lands
Lands Branch
POB 8700
St. John's, Nfld. A1B 4J6
Tel: (709) 729-3085

In. P# - Index Page; Ac. = Acres; R. = ?; P. = ? (appear to be surveyor codes)

The information was transcribed by CHERYL McGREGOR ~ November 2001. While I have tried to be careful, there could be errors - my errors, interpretive errors or errors existing in the actual document.
