Following the War of 1812 and the Napoleonic Wars, New Brunswick was the recipient of a number of disbanded soldiers who were granted land in the colony. The largest and most successful of these settlements was along the St. John River in northern Carleton and southern Victoria Counties. The populating of these lands was one of the most lasting consequences of the War of 1812 and the other British conflicts of the early 19th century.

This document lists the settlers and the amount of progress they had made in establishing a home on the land they were granted.
