Scope and content

Series forms part of Nova Scotia Commissioner of Crown Lands fonds and consists of records relating to the granting and, in a few cases, sale, of Crown Lands, including land grants, plans, surveys, petitions, warrants and correspondence. The records are arranged by County, as follows: Annapolis, Cumberland, Guysborough, Halifax, Kings, Lunenburg, Pictou and Shelburne, and chronologically within each county. When the records were arranged at the office of their creation, excerpts and copies of records were placed in order according to the date of the original document rather than the date of the copy, which was not recorded.
