Coilbound Edition

This publication is an index to the initial holders of patents for the land in the Richmond Militry Settlement and the surrounding Goulbourn Township in Carleton County, Ontario. It also includes Military Regiment, Rank and Country of Emigration of some of the people to whom patents were awarded.

A Patent is the first transaction in separating the land from the Crown to a person. Subsequent transactions are through Deeds and Bills of Sale etc. The Patent is issued to a petitioner after completing all steps in the land granting process.

Settlers, mainly discharged soldiers from the 99th Regiment of Foot, arrived in Goulbourn Township in the fall of 1818. They would have received a location ticket for a lot of land and would have started building a log house, then clearing the land and other duties required to complete the terms of settlement. This usually took three years and the issuance of the Patent an additional two or three years.

Contents include:
  • Introduction to Land Patent Holders Goulbourn Township and Village of Richmond
    • Explanation of Patents and historical data
    • 13 steps in Granting a Patent
    • Goulbourn Township (origins)
    • Explanation of information categories included in the book
    • Additional research resources (list)
  • Richmond settlement town plan (streets and lots)
  • List of Land Patent Holders in Goulbourn Twonship and Richmond Village (name, date, lot location, acres, remarks)
  • (No Index needed insofar as the content is organized alphabetically by surname)
Information listed for each Land Patent:
  • Surname and given name's of the Land Patent Holder (organized in aphabetical order by Surname). The information in this publication is organized alphabetically by the Surname of the patent holder. In this case, patent holder may be an individual or may include churches, burial grounds and land allocated to the Village of Richmond or to the Canada Company. Patent holders may be listed more than once if they received patents for more than one parcel of land.
  • Date of transaction. The date is the date of Patent Issue as listed in Abstract Index. However if there is an entry in the Remarks column the date will be the date that terms of Settlement were completed.
  • Lot Location (Concession and Lot number)
  • Nmber of acres
  • Remarks (often includes rank and regiment for military settlers, and some country of origin notations for non-military settlers)
