|Ambrose F. Church Company|
In 1864, Ambrose F. Church was commissioned by the Nova Scotia legislature to create a series of maps, one for each of Nova Scotia's eighteen counties, showing:
|Crown Land Grant Maps|
These are a series of 140 maps showing the locations of the first land grants and township plots in
Nova Scotia. As the majority of land grants were issued between 1750 and 1850, the grantee names listed may predate the A. F. Church maps by 100 years.
Pictou County is included in maps 85-88,and 92-94. Very small portions of the county bordering Colchester, Guysborough and Antigonish Counties not in the above maps are included in maps 78-80, 95, 98-100.
