Petitions to the Crown Lands Dept. re: VanValkenburgs

This second major set of Land Petitions, "Petitions to the Crown Lands Department 1827 to 1904" (Library & Archives Canada RG-C-I-1 is now RG 1-54), and unlike the Upper-and-Lower Canada Land Petitions, this collection is not yet available online.

See the Resource file:  Canadian Land Petitions of VanValkenburgh/Vollick/related Families for an overview of this and other land petitions.

Using a Finding Aid with a range of surnames, all V surnames were found on MS 691 Reel 65 at the Ontario Archives.  A later search found more VV women under their married names.  See bottom for all surnames searched (not just VV, Follick, Vollick).

Jan. 2014 - Petitions to Crown Lands Department - 2nd research trip at Ontario Archives, to search for the following surnames (and many potential spellings):

Brooks
Card / Caird
Conant / Conat, etc.
Davis
Diamond / Dimond
Follick / Folick, Follack, Folluck etc.
Garrison / Garison, Gerrison etc.
Jenkins
Lake
Mattis / Mattice
McConnell 
Outwater / (Atwater not checked)
Peters
Phoenix / Phenix (Fenix not checked)
Sears / (Cyr not checked)
Palmateer / Palmatier
Van
Vollick
/ Volick, Vollack, Volluck etc.
Wright

I did see some surnames above but not for those related to the VV branches.  i.e. Garison, Brooks, Dimonds.  No more VV's, Vans, Vollicks or Follicks.

These petitions, in general, were concerned with lot boundary issues, patents that had not been filed properly in the past, uninhabited lots who were now occupied by squatters, some military land grants that were not proceding, and groups applying for land for churches/schools.
