Land Concessions

in Wainfleet Township (1795)

This is a partial list of the original land grants of Wainfleet Township, Welland County, Ontario. Trudy Bray (RBHD@MUSIC.MACARTHUR.UWS.EDU.AU) graciously sent me the information to include on this site. Evidently, this is the 2nd half of a map by M. Burwall. If anyone has access to the first part of this map please let me know so we can arrange to get the list completed and presented on the site.
