Chr. Hagerman, Atty. Gen.

To have and to hold the said parcel or tract of land hereby given and granted to them the said New England Company, reserving one chain for a road between the 12th and 13th, and one chain between the 18th and 14th Concession, with free access to the beach for all vessels, boats and persons, and their successors and assigns forever; saving, nevertheless, to Us, Our heirs and successors, all mines of gold and silver that shall or may be hereafter found on any part of the said parcel or tract of land hereby given and granted as aforesaid; and saving and reserving to Us, Our heirs and successors, all white pine trees, that shall or may now or hereafter grow or be growing on any part of the said parcel or tract of land hereby granted as aforesaid. Provided, always, that no part of the parcel or tract of land hereby given and granted to the said New England Company and their successors and assigns, be within any reservation heretofore made and marked for Us, Our heirs and successors, by Our Surveyor General of Woods, or his lawful Deputy, in which case, this Our grant for such part of the land hereby given and granted to the said New England Company and their successors and assigns forever, as aforesaid, and which shall, upon a survey thereof being made, be found within any such reservation, shall be null and void, and of none effect, anything herein contained to the contrary notwithstanding.

And whereas, by an Act of the Parliament of Great Britain, passed in the thirty-first year of the reign of His late Majesty, King George the Third, entitled: “An Act to repeal certain parts of an Act passed in the fourteenth year of His Majesty’s reign, entitled: ‘An Act for making more effectual provision for the Government of the Province of Quebec, in North America, and to make further provision for the Government of the said Province,’” it is declared, “that no grant of lands thereafter made should be valid or effectual unless the same should contain a specification of the lands to be allotted and appropriated solely to the maintenance of a Protestant Clergy within the said Province, in respect of the lands to be thereby granted.” Now Know ye, that We have caused an allotment or appropriation of 228 acres and 4/7ths to be made in lots Nos. 33 and 40, in the 15th Concession of the said Township of Smith.

Given under the Great Seal of Our said Province of Upper Canada: Witness Our Trusty and Well-beloved Sir Francis Bond Head, K.C.B., &c., &c., &c., Lieut. Governor of Our said Province, this third day of April, in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred and thirty-seven, and in the seventh year of Our Reign.
