Broad Bay Land Dispute ca 1760
- There was a land dispute that was settled in the 1760 period that involved
some of the German settlers and others over land that was described as being
at Broad Bay at Muscongus.
I have German ancestry but am on the other side on this one. My ancestor.
Hugh HOLMES, was one of the so-called "Pemaquid Heirs" and evidently lost
land in the dispute. I would imagine the case went to trial somewhere.
I feel that if I can find any information on the subject it might help me
extend Hugh's ancestry.
Any suggestions appreciated,
