European settlement of an area in colonial New Brunswick began with a land survey and the division of the land into individual parcels of land, or “lots”, typically 100 acres (40.47 hectares). These individual parcels were then allocated to settlers by varying means, and the settlers’ names were often added to the maps on their assigned lots.
The New Brunswick Archives has copies of many of these survey maps. The description, location and available survey maps of New Brunswick communities can be found HERE. Below are links to images of two sections of the survey maps relevant to the Glassville settlement. Full size copies of these maps may be downloaded from the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick HERE.
