This is the note from the Quebec Archives: Lots granted and to grant the manor in St. Gabriel in the first, second and third concessions south of the Jacques Cartier River, and in the fifth. – Circa 1815
Comment from Pat Balkcom: It seems to me that 1815 or 1816 would have been very early for this document to have been written. The date 1816 is penciled in on the side of the document, it is not part of the original document. I believe that some of the people listed here did not arrive in Quebec until 1818. I guess it’s possible that Previous arrangements for land could have been made before they left their native lands. Hopefully more documents will be found to help date this better.
