Land grants from 1822

These 1820s land grants in the Paterson area are shown superimposed on a modern 1:25,000 scale topographic map. The Paterson River forms one of the boundaries of each of the blocks shown.


  • for sources see the web pages for the individual first title holders.
  • the boundaries shown in the above map indicate the holdings as originally granted to, or purchased by, the first title holders. They not do account for later subdivisions.


This map is adapted from the map on page 8 of: Archer, Cameron. The Settlement of the Paterson District. Paterson: Paterson Historical Society, 1986.
