Map of the Counties of Shefford, Iberville, Brome, Missisquoi, and Rouville, Canada East.

Title: Map of the Counties of Shefford, Iberville, Brome, Missisquoi, and Rouville, Canada East.
Publisher: H.F. Walling, 1864.
Source: Missisquoi Museum
Description:
This is a very nice map depicting not only roads, railroads, and civil subdivisions but, in many cases, lot numbers and even owners of specific lots. This astonishing amount of detail is only possible because of the size of the original map: 138 x 140 cm! The map also reflects the early settlement by Anglophones, visible through the owners' names on each lot. Anglicized place names ("Lake," "River" and "Road"), and even archaic place names such as Mont Johnson (Mont-Gregoire) and St. Johns (St-Jean-sur-Richelieu) dot the map.see map here

 Notarial Records
Notarial records exist only for the province of Quebec. They are private agreements written by a notary that took the form of contracts such as:
  • marriage contract;
  • inventory;
  • lease;
  • engagement;
  • obligation;
  • will; and
  • sale.
Marriage contracts provide information on the spouses and their parents. They were usually drawn up a few days before the religious ceremony. The Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec holds the notarial records.

Lower Canada Land Petitions -Library and Archives Canada

|
When New France became a British colony in 1763, the land system changed. New lands were now granted as part of townships instead of seigneuries. Many early settlers, both military and civilian, submitted petitions to the Governor to obtain Crown land. The Lower Canada Land Petitions contain petitions for grants or leases of land and other administrative records. This research tool provides access to more than 95,000 references to individuals who lived in present-day Quebec between 1764 and 1841.
