MUNICIPALITY OF VALCARTIER COUNTY OF QUEBEC

 

November 7, l8S9

 

Proces Verbal which provides for the making and maintenance of a line of Road in the First Concession, South East of River aux Pins and being a portion of the Municipa1ity of Valcartier, County and district of Québec, and also to change the by-route leading from the said Concession through the lands of the Second Concession adjoining heretofore existing to a more favorable and easy route communicating with the old River aux Pin Road.

 

A petition having been presented to the Municipal Council of St. Gabriel de Valcartier by Messrs Davis, Neil, Samuel Clark, senior, Samuel Clark junior, Armstrong,  Madden and others, proprietors and occupiers of lands in the First Concession, South East of River aux Pin in the Municipality of Valcartier County of Quebec, representing that a number of lots in the said First Con­cession on the division line between lots twenty-one and twenty-two in the Second Concession adjoining is a very heavy rocky hill, difficult to keep and maintain and praying that the said Council may be pleased to establish a front road across the said First Concession, making a trifling change in the existing track a little to the North West of the said track on the land now owned and occupied by James Dohehy and Thomas Madden, thence in a direct line across a portion of lot number twenty-two in the First Concession, thence in as straight a direction as the nature of the ground may admit through the lands of the Second Concession till it strikes the Old River aux Pin Road, on the road leading from William Murphy's in the said Second Concession.

The said Council having heard and deliberated on the said petition, by a resolution of the said Council did empower Charles Stuart Wolff, Esquire, the present Secretary Treasurer of the said Council to be their Deputy in the matter of the said petition, to examine the premises relative to the subject matter contained in the said petition and to draw up a Proces Verbal in the manner prescribed by law.

 

Whereupon I, Charles Stuart Wolff, Secretary Treasurer and Deputy of the Municipal Council of St. Gabriel de Valcartier, read the said petition on Sunday, the twenty-eighth day of August, together with an order intimating that I would attend at the residence of Samuel Clark in the First Concession of River aux Pin on Tuesday the thirtieth of August, where all interested

in the said road would meet at ten o'clock in the forenoon. Accordingly on the day and hour appointed, I proceeded to the residence afore mentioned where I was met by Samuel Clark, Junior, William Clark, Thomas Madden, David Neil, Thomas Doneher and others of the said Proprietors, all interested in the said petition. Having read the said petition and having heard what they had to say, for or against it, I proceeded to examine the line of road prayed for by the petitioners and having examined the same, I order and direct in so far as I am empowered that the line of road marked out by the petitioners may be established according to law.

 

That is to say, commencing at the line of Separation between Fossomabult and St. Gabriel in the said First Concession, in or about eight arpents to the North West of the Concession Line between the said First and Second Concessions in the most practicable place that may be found in the said First Concession, due regard being had to the rights of individual property. About one acre to the South East of the New Dwelling House erected by John McCune, following to the South East bank of a deep ravine running across lot No.8, down towards the River aux Pin between lots Nos. 8 & 9, about two arpents thence across nine and ten till it strikes a fence directly in front of the Dwelling House of Samuel Clark, junior; as close to a stony hill as may be practicable for a road now existing through the First Concession, following the said road across the different lots till about half across lot No. twenty, thence from the old road near to the house of James Donahue in the most practicable place for a road. Across number twenty-one and a portion of No. twenty-two, on lot No 22 there is but a Small portion.
