Brief Description: Map details the lands available in York County, north of the St. John River and Fredericton in the province of New Brunswick. The New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Land Company owned 500,000 acres of land (outlined in pink on the map) extending from St. John River to the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The company organized in 1831 driving emigration and development in Canada in the 1830's and 40's. The private company purchased land from the Crown for low prices, developed infrastructure for settlements and resold the land to new settlers. Through package deals and promotional broadsides like this map, the company and private landowners relocated emigrants to these areas while removing unwanted tenants from their lands.
