    • Cape Breton land petition year 1805
      Martell, John
      Report of Crawley to Plant; 500 acres on the south shore of Miré Bay. Note- Letters patent authorized. Plan.
      Cape Breton no. 208
      NSARM microfilm 15789

      John Martell sells off his land grant at 5 shillings/acre to John Broderick (1828-sold to Charles Ley), Thomas O'Neil (1828) , James Butler (1828), James Ley, Lawrence Mullins (1828), and Thomas Ley (1828)
      (James Butler married John's niece Sarah Buckley)
      (Lawrence Mullins married John's niece Margaret Buckley)
      (James and Thomas Ley were John's nephews)
      Perhaps this was a relatives' discount or these men were his employees? How are John Broderick and Thomas O'Neil related? (Thomas O'Neil was a son in law of Walter Burke)
