This document is unique on several counts. In no way is it original. It outlines, at some length the one quarter of land centered on the area of the Township of Hull which was put at the disposal of PHILEMON WRIGHT and associates. The date mentioned in the preamble is 1 FEBRUARY 1802. Further along in the text, on page 2, the follow is noted
“And whereas our well beloved PHILEMON WRIGHT for himself and several associates, hereinafter named by petition bearing the date 17 APRIL 1797 has humbly requested…etc…etc.”
(Note: The year 1797 was one of the years, prior to the final year of 1800 when the Wright Party settled on the land, that WRIGHT came to look over the property.)
As anyone can see this is a typed copy prepared on 8 MARCH 1889 (after typing machines had been invented).
The date of registry in Québec [City] was 14 JANUARY 1806 and in Second Register of Letters Patent 25 JANUARY 1806 and thirdly in the Auditor’s records on 3 APRIL 1806.
The surprising note is that the King on the English throne in whose name this grant was made was GEORGE III, who was to die in 1820 a long time after the above events.
Finally the date of grant, on cover is 3 JANUARY 1806. A remarkable document.
