Mount Desert Island Land Grants and Deeds

a project of
V. F. Thomas Co. - P. O. Box 84 - Hulls Cove, Maine  04644

(updated 4 July 2024)

Purpose of this web page: The pages linked to below focus primarily, but not exclusively, on (1) working forward from the earliest land grants of the property shown on the Peters Plan and the Salem Towne, Jr., map and (2) working backward from the land ownership of Acadia National Park by the United States government to the Peters Plan and Salem Towne, Jr., map. Another focus is tracing the deeds to land of the island’s cemeteries. The ultimate goal of this page is to include all land on Mount Desert Island.

How this page is organized: The first portion of this (very long) web page reports in chronological order the early land grants that lead to the Salem Towne Jr. map (western side of MDI) and the Peters Plan (eastern side), and contains links to the supporting deeds recorded in the Hancock County Registry of Deeds (Ellsworth, Maine). Bracketed material (e.g., [1:426]) refers to the book (1 in this example) and page(s) (426 in this example) of documents in the Hancock County Registry of Deeds. The second portion begins with an image of the Peters Plan on which horizontal bands have been drawn, and parcels falling (more or less) within each band have been numbered from west to east. Below the map is a table with basic information about each parcel. When deeds for a parcel are located, a link will be provided that will take you to a web page about that parcel. The third portion of this web page contains an image of the Salem Towne map and a table, following the pattern of the Peters Plan.

How you can help: Please send scanned images or photocopies of deeds to or mail them to “MDI Deeds” at the address at the top of this page.

A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.

pre-1761 through the time that the Indigenous people were killed or driven off the land by immigrants of primarily European origin
   “With indigenous people, property was held in common. The Indian knew nothing of landed estates, and aside from possessing articles for personal adornment or for providing for his defense or his livelihood he showed no acquisitive instinct.” (source: Starbird, Charles M. 1928. The Indians of the Androscoggin Valley, page 39.)
   However, there was something called the “Doctrine of Discovery” (also called the “Discovery Doctrine”), which was invented by European monarchies, that held that land outside Europe belonged to the European monarchy that “discovered” it. This was regardless of whether that land was inhabited by an Indigenous people. This, of course, led to conflicts between countries that made overlapping claims, most notably between England and France with respect to land in Maine in general and Mount Desert Island in particular.
   Because land was collectively shared (as referenced in the first paragraph above) by the indigenous inhabitants of what is now the towns of Bar Harbor, Cranberry Isles, Mount Desert, Southwest Harbor, and Tremont, and because these indigenous inhabitants had no written language, deeds for land were nonexistent. So, the European concept of land ownership in what is today these towns can be traced back only to the time of a resolution of the French-English dispute and not to the original inhabitants.

   April - grant by Louis XIV of France to “de la Motte Cadillacc” [referenced in 1:426]

   February 27 - grant by General Court of Massachusetts, the legislative body of what is now the state of Massachusetts, to Governor Francis Bernard of one-half of Mount Desert Island

   June 14 - “Unhappy” with Governor Francis Bernard’s strong support of Great Britain and particularly his support of the Stamp Act and his response to riots opposing the Act, American colonists met at the Old South Meeting House and appointed a committee of twenty-one to meet with Governor Bernard and protest his actions.

   June 27 - As a result of unrest among the colonists, Governor Francis Bernard was granted his request to return to England, and he ultimately left on 1 August 1769.

   1778 September 23 - Governor Francis Bernard’s will, leaving Mount Desert Island to trustees for his son, John Bernard
   1779 April 30 - Act of State of Massachusetts Bay confiscated estates of “certain notorious conspirators against the government”
   1779 June 16 - Governor Francis Bernard died

   June 23 - upon petition from John Bernard, the General Court of Massachusetts, noting that John Bernard’s conduct had been “meritorious”, restored to him ownership of Mount Desert Island.

   June 29 - Commonwealth of Massachusetts “grant” to Monsieur DeGregoire of all of April 1691 grant [see above] on condition of naturalization of Monsieur and Madame DeGregoire [1:426]
   October 29 - permission for Bartholomy and Maria Theresa DeGregoire for naturalization of themselves and their three children (Pierre, Nicholas, and Maria) [2:199 (beginning near bottom of page)–200]
   November 2 - naturalization of Bartholomy and Maria Theresa DeGregoire [no mention of children] with Dr. Andre Carrente as their French translator [2:200 (beginning near bottom of page)]
   November 21 - petition by Bartholomy and Maria Theresa DeGregoire to the General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for establishment of a boundary line separating what would be the DeGregoires’ land from that of the Commonwealth [1:427 (top third of page)]
   November 22–23 - petition of November 21 [see above] granted by the General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (passed Nov. 22 by the Senate, Nov. 23 by the House of Representatives). Samuel Thompson Esq. named to work with the DeGregoires in establishing the boundaries [1:427 (middle third of page)]
   December - Supreme Judicial Court (in session adjourned from August 1787), responding to petition by the DeGregoires for division of their land from that of John Bernard, appointed James Sullivan to represent Bernard and appointed William Lithgow Jr., Nathaniel [Thuring or Thewing?], and Steven Jones to make the partition [part of 2:485 (beginning just above middle of page), 486, and 487]

   June/July - DeGregoires’ report to Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts that William Lithgow Jr. and Nathaniel [Thuring or Thewing?] declined appointment and petition to the Court to appoint others and subsequent appointment by Supreme Judicial Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts of James Sullivan of Boston to represent John Bernard’s interest and Steven Jones, Nathan Jones, and Thomas Richardson to partition the island [part of 2:485 (beginning just above middle of page), 486, and 487]

   January 28 - outline of French grant [note: this is not the division of MDI between the DeGregoires and Bernard]; survey by John Peters based on instructions received from Nathan Jones Esq. and General Samuel Thompson [1:428 (bottom two-thirds of the page)]
   August 13 - response by Samuel Thompson to 22–23 November 1787 directive to Thompson [1:427 (beginning near bottom of page)–428 (top portion of page)]

   November 28 - The DeGregoires were in debt to Perez Morton, of Boston, for 137 pounds, 6 shillings, and 8 pence. They were also in debt to Joseph De La Tombe, the consul of France, who was residing in Boston, for 65 pounds and 8 shillings, which he “kindly and benevolently advanced us in cash at our request to aid and assist us in our distresses and necessities.” To pay these debts, they mortgaged “two undivided fifth parts of our divided moiety of the island of Mount Desert ... and also one undivided moiety of all our rights, title, interest, and estate ... in and to all [our] lands on the mainland lying on each side of Jordan’s River”. The terms of the mortgage were that it was to be paid off on or before 28 November 1793 (i.e., a three-year mortgage) and that the amount due would be the two sums mentioned above plus “lawful interest”.
   On 1 August 1792 (and recorded in 1:516–517), Perez Morton released the mortgage, noting that the DeGregoires had paid him 182 pounds and 17 shillings, and had paid Joseph De La Tombe 60 pounds, “with which he is content”.

   February - report by Stephen Jones, Nathan Jones, and Thomas Richardson of the division of Mount Desert Island between the DeGregoires and John Bernard; specifically:
      beginning above Mr. James Richardson’s, at a stake and stones at the head of the tide at the northern extremity of Mount Desert Sound;
      from thence running N 38° W to a stake and stones upon the edge of the bank of high water mark upon the northern side of said island;
      then easterly along by high water mark upon the northern side of said island;
      then easterly along by high water mark down to and around the east end of said island;
      then westerly by the shore to said Mount Desert Sound;
      then northerly by the shore up said sound to the first mentioned bounds;
      the whole of that part of said island to the westward of said sound and of said northerly line from the head of said sound to the northerly shore, to be the moiety or share of John Bernard Esq. [2:487 (beginning about one-fourth of the way down the page)]
      [It is likely that the above line was run earlier than this 1794 report. Nathan Jones and Thomas Richardson were sworn on 27 January 1789 to discharge their duty (no date for Stephen Jones), and the DeGregoires were selling parcels in March 1792. The dividing line described above has often been referred to as the “French Line”. Virginia Somes-Sanderson, on page 29 of her 1982 book The Living Past, said, “Mr. O. C. Nutting, a lumberman who died in 1972 at the age of ninety-eight, stated that when he was younger he knew exactly where the ‘French Line’ was laid and that markers could be found in the woods between Somesville and Indian Point.”]

Peters Plan - The Peters Plan, or at least a common edition of the plan, has more than one lot with the same number or letter. For example, there are two lots numbered 81 and two lots designated as lot E. Also, some lots have no number or letter. To eliminate this confusion, each lot on the map below has been given a unique alphanumeric label.
