The following list of Location Certificates and Occupation Permits for Godmanchester and Hinchinbrook Townships has been kindly provided by Gina Smith . Gina Smith found this information during  her research of Lower Canada Land Grants. She believes the information is a copy of the original records because each of the three sets of details below state at the bottom:

"Huntingdon Village July 20th 1826 (Signed) Wm Bowron Agent for Superintending the Settlement of the Townships of Hinchinbrook, Hemmingford and Godmanchester"
