Land surveys and applications

Identifier: LaRC-23

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of land surveys by G. Dunbar, C. Trudeau, J. Loveball, J. Fairlamb, and C. Bolling, all of whom were early surveyors of various districts of Louisiana. These districts include Natchez, Galvez-Town, Baton Rouge, Metairie, Feliciana, and others. Most of the land applications were produced during the regimes of governors Miró and Carondolet. In 1803 one application for land to the Spanish authorities was denied because of the transfer of the Louisiana Territory from the Spanish to the Republic of France.
