Note area on right (south) is labeled New Stonehaven, now called Kincardine and Bon Accord further east. The area on the left is labeled Kintore as it is still called.
Jean found the map at the New Brunswick Archives site.
Jean counts 63 lots in the New Stonehaven area with names on them. Of the 63, probably 10 are unmarried sons who qualified for their own 100 acre lot (the lots on the north side of Kincardine road are 100 acres.)
Were the names written down as families signed up in the (old) Stonehaven, Scotland, newspaper office?
