Applications for free grants of land to families with 12 living children under the 1890 law : Missisquoi families

|
In 1890, the Honoré Mercier government, observing that it was "advisable, following the example of past centuries, to give marks of consideration for fruitfulness in the sacred bonds of matrimony", passed a law entitled An Act to confer a privilege upon fathers or mothers of families who have twelve children living (53 Vict., c. 26). The Act granted 100 acres of public lands free of charge to parents of 12 living children born in lawful wedlock. The measure harkens back the 17th century, when Louis XIV took measures to encourage births in Canada.

 In that era, inhabitants who managed to have 10 children living, born in lawful wedlock, excluding priests, monks and nuns, could receive an annual pension of 300 pounds. The pension was increased to 400 pounds if the number of children reached 12. To have the benefit of the law of 1890, an eligible father or mother had to present a petition to the Provincial Secretary, accompanied by his or her certificate of marriage, a certificate of birth of each of his or her children and a certificate sworn before a justice of the peace giving the number and names of the children. After examining the petition and certificates, the Provincial Secretary reported to the Lieutenant-Governor in Council. If the latter granted the petition, an order was passed to that effect and a copy was sent to the Commissioner of Crown Lands, who had the duty of granting the petitioner the 100 acres he had selected.
