About Henry Caldwell's petition for the Towns of Milton and Granby, RG1 L3L Vol. 52, pp. 26590-26728

This collection of documents spans pages 026590 - 026728 in Volume 52. It contains a number of lists of names and seems to be several different petitions and documents dating from as early as 1788 up until 1805.

Pages 26600 to 26603 are a memo by Henry Caldwell. The memo itself is undated but the file sheet states "No. 53 Petition Henry Caldwell Esqr. Colonel Commandt. of the British Militia in behalf of himself & the Corps. 26th March 1792." In the memo are the words "That your Petitioner in the Year 1788 presented a Memorial to His Excellency Lord Dorchester, refering to a former application in behalf of the Officers and Privates of the British Militia for a Tract of the Waste Lands of the Crown." Immediately before this memo, on pages 26590 to 26599 is a list of 159 names, plus 31 widows whose maiden names are provided, for the towns of Granby and Milton. The list is undated and unlabelled save for the file sheet that states "Distribution of the Townships of Granby & Milton". It seems most likely that this list, which has signs of being reworked, is the list from 1788 referred to in the memo and which has ammendments made up till 1792. The list is transcribed below.
