A list of persons who have petitioned for LAND - August 16, 1831

The following information was copied from "The Royal Gazette" newspaper dated August 16, 1831. While I have attempted to be as accurate as possible, I might have made a mistake when transcribing the data. I have maintained exact spelling and wording to the best of my ability.

A list of persons who have petitioned for LAND and who, it is probable, will receive grants for the quantity placed opposite their names respectively, provided no legal or equitable counter claim can be brought forward withion three month after the date hereof.
