Crown Land Grants - Ferryland District (1748 ~ 1926)

This index was compiled using references from the following sources:
  • Crown Lands Administration Division, Department of Municipal Affairs, PO Box 8710, St. John's, NL; Canada A1B 4J6. Tel: (709) 729-3085; Fax: (709) 729-6136. Street Adress: The Howley Building, Higgins Line, St. John's. This location is the main repository for Crown Land Grants. Grant volumes that are not tagged, or are marked LOC (Licenses of Occupation), SG (Special Grants), are currently housed at this location. However, keep in mind that this index includes references to documents that may have been destroyed in the St. John's Fire of 1892. See Crown Land Grants Registry for additional information. Within the Crown Land records, some grants also have references to "Plan" numbers that were created when the railway was built from St.John's to Trepassey in the early 1900s.
  • Registry of Deeds, Services NL, Commercial Registrations Division, P.O. Box 8700, St. John's, NL, A1B 4J6. Tel: (709) 729-3302; Fax: (709) 729-0232. Street Address: 59 Elizabeth Avenue, St.John's. This location, while the primary repository for land deeds, also has some Crown Land grants that were registered (or later reregistered) within certain other collections. For identification purposes, this alternate source of grant volumes has been tagged as SDC - Southern District Court, i.e. Ferryland.
  • The Rooms Provincial Archives, P.O. Box 1800, Station C, St. John's, NL; Canada A1C 5P9; Telephone: 709-757-8030; Email: information@therooms.ca. Street Address: 9 Bonaventure Avenue, St.John's. This Archive houses collections relating to a variety of surviving government and donated private documents, some pertaining back to fishery and land grants issued in the 18th century, and on into later centuries. This source may be tagged with various acronyms such as CSL (Colonial Secretary's Letterbook), SUR (Surrogate Court), SUP (Supreme Court), or COL (Colonial Records).
  • Journals of the House of Assembly of Newfoundland. After the first Crown Lands Act was passed in 1844, people who were in possession of unregistered Crown land were encouraged to have their land holdings officially surveyed and registered. The Act gave such land holders four years grace in which to comply, after which the land could be forfeited to the Crown. It is not clear which documents were used to record these grants, however in the appendix of each Journal for the next four years, there is a listing of individuals who chose to protect their land from forfeiture. The Journal also provides a list of land sold by the Crown at public auctions. No indication is given to indicate if this was forfeited land, but the records state that its sale was "under the Crown Lands Bill". Lands grants mentioned and extracted from the various Journals have been tagged here as JHAN (Journals of the House of Assembly of Newfoundland) with the year, ending date, and the appendix page where the reference was found.
  • In addition to the government recorded Crown Land grants, there are other non-governmental documents that refer to the fact that individuals and businesses petitioned the Crown for land for a number of years prior to the introduction to the Crown Lands Act. One such source is the St. John's newspaper The Royal Gazette. Reference to some of these petitions (and life events) pertaining to Ferryland District can be viewed on this page "Newspaper articles of the Ferryland District - Early 1800's. Unfortunately few official government documents have been found that detail which of these petitions were actually granted and it is likely that most of any approved grants for that era were among earlier volumes lost in the great St. John's Fire of 1892.

Additional information in [square brackets] has been provided by the compiler for clarification. Some grants may appear within several different government collections under other reference numbers. Issue dates sometimes differ in other references used to record various phases of the overall grant approval process, which occasionally stretched out over several years.

The earliest grants were generally referenced only by known local landmarks or topography, while in some Court Records and such, length measurements were often expressed in yards, feet, etc. In later years, officially surveyed land size was recorded in A-R-P i.e. Acres, Roods and Perches. Size values related to these surveys were as follows: One acre = 43560 sq. ft.; One rood = 10890 sq. ft. (1/4 acre); One perch= 272.25 sq. ft. (1/40 of a rood). Linear measurements of the land boundaries were usually stated in chains and links; one chain = 66 ft. (100 links); one link being 7.92 inches.

St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Parish was established at Witless Bay in 1832. The parish priest, Rev. Patrick Cleary, served the area for over fifty years so his name is recorded on most of the land grants that were obtained on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church. A number of these grants were reregistered over the years but the association of the old with the new is not clearly recorded in surviving references.The cross-references listed below are based on my understanding of the original grants and any subsequent reregistrations.

This list is a compilation of Land Grants records pertaining to Ferryland District. A number of these records, focused mainly on settlements in the southern end of the District, were transcribed by Roberta Sullivan (May 2000) and Ray Curran (February 2001). These transcriptions have been included in a different format within this expanded list posted by Kevin Reddigan in May 2017. An effort has been made here to list grants (which are referenced in a variety of surviving records within the timeframe noted) for all of Ferryland District
