Crown Land Grant Reference Map Viewer

Here’s the link:

The underlying Colony lot map (cadastral) images are a little different than other versions I’ve seen (I’ve seen six or seven versions so far).

When you zoom in to the map, you can see the modern subdivisions. You can change the map to reveal aerial photos (these are different  photos than Google Maps).

Click on the yellow grant reference points to see the lot number, date of the grant and a full name. The grant number can be cross-referenced with the “Index to New Brunswick Land Grants, 1784 – 1997 (RS686)” at PANB: https://archives.gnb.ca/Search/RS686/Introduction.aspx?culture=en-CA. Click on “Search Page” link to enter the grants database.

Here is a screen shot (older version of viewer) showing a closeup of the Colony area. (All of New Brunswick is included on the map):

This map viewer is superior, because it shows lot lines and subdivisions, to what I have been trying to do with our Scotch Colony Google Map. However, one nice thing about Google Maps is that you can navigate to any point using your cell phone/device with the Google Maps app.
