Abstracts of old Series I,
Sunbury County Petitions 1765-1823

This record was made by the members of York Sunbury Historical Association, many years ago.  The format was modified by Cleadie B. Barnett, and placed in alphabetical order (all data retained.)  These petitions have all been re-catalogued by the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick, where they are now housed, and are now in a single body of Land Petitions.  There are many more for Sunbury County that are not identified here. The first several in this list were as groups, but the surnames have been added to the alpha listing.  This listing has been in the record , as some of may be interested in looking at these documents.  It should be noted that there are a few records included that do not relate to land, one of which relates to a murder.
