Petition Correction For John Book

Image 498
Upper Canada Land Petitions (1763-1865)
Microform: c-1621
Petitions "B," Bundle 6
Petition 53b
John Book, Ancaster, needed a correction for Lot 44, 4th Concession


The Book house in Ancaster.

John book was found on "The Squatters Petition for Title to Ancaster Land," described as "The earliest known record of squatters' petitions was known as "The James Wilson and Associates", 1783, a list of 22 petitioners"...
3. Book, John (1754 - 1827) Lot 44/4 and 45/4 Lot 55 northern half 45/5, 700 acres, Petitioner 21

The name "Book" is one that catches my attention because Melissa Kennedy (sister of my Mary Agnes Kennedy) married George Book in Canada.
