Crown Land Grant Reference Map Viewer

Here’s the link:

Apparently,  this Map Viewer uses Adobe Flash so it probably won’t work on the iPhone or iPad.

The underlying map is 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, (controls are partially obscured in upper left) you can see the modern subdivisions. You can hide the map (“Basemap” button in upper right) to reveal aerial photos (these are older 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: Click on “Search Page” link to enter the grants database.

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

This is what I have been trying to do in Google Maps. One nice thing about Google Maps is that you can, using your mobile phone, navigate to any point on the map.
