Zoom (controls in lower right) and scroll (drag mouse). Remove overlay for a better view of the underlying satellite photo.
It may take a while for the overlay to appear. It’s a big file.
The overlay is misaligned near the edges. Look at the underlying photo for roads, fields, and clearcuts to reorient lot lines.
The original cadastral images were downloaded from the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick. I still don’t know what time period is represented on the maps.
- I’d like to add points of interest from the Scotch Colony Map.
- add places mentioned in New Kincardineshire by Duncan A MacPhail
- add more and more…
A bit of piping from last fall:
Held in Burns Hall, Kincardine, New Brunswick Canada.
“Plan of New Kincardineshire containing 25,000 acres / by Charles E. Beckwith, D.L.S. [Deputy Land Surveyor]. – 1873. – 1 sketch : pen and ink. The plan gives the names of the settlers, the number of the lot assigned to each, and the number of acres each received (100 or 200 acres). Rivers, streams, and roads are also noted. MC42-MS21-7 B. R. Stevenson fonds, Charlotte County Archives. ”
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?
This map was assembled by Bill Duncan from 8 pieces downloaded from the New Brunswick Archives. http://archives.gnb.ca/Exhibits/PlannedSettlements/ImageList.aspx?culture=en-CA&Link=MC42-MS21-7-1of8%7CP29-15&t=Kincardine&title=Perseverance+&p=11&of=14. There is a piece of the map missing (lot 36 in New Stonehaven) on the original scans. The gap I show may exaggerate the distance.
I’m experimenting with overlaying this map on Google maps satellite photos: http://williamlduncan.com/GoogleMapOverlayAPIBeckwith1873_122217-1.html Zoom in on the Google map to see any mismatches between the lines on the map image and the edges of the fields visible on the satellites photo.
