Plan of Prince Edward Island showing the names of the Proprietors
Plan of Prince Edward Island showing the names of the Proprietors, their acreage, and the number of settlers on their property. The map shows Prince Edward Island divided into the 67 lots established by Samuel Holland. For each lot, the map gives the proprietors' names, the acreage amount and the number of settlers. Some bodies of water are coloured blue. Stippling, or sometimes shading, indicates sandy areas and sand bars. Shading is used to indicate marshes. The map shows the locations of some buildings. It indicates the locations of mills. Dotted lines appear in places, possibly representing roads. In the Charlottetown Harbour area, the map shows lighthouses, a mill and a ferry landing in the present-day Stratford area. Ships are shown on the water.
