Vol. III. MARCH, 1900. No. i.

LINCOLN COUNTY, MAINE, PETITIONS.

William Blakk Trask, A. M., of Dorchester, communicated to
the New England Historical and Genealogical Register (April, i8go)
a " Petition of the Inhabitants of Kennebec River for Protection,"
dated April 22. 1755, which contains substantially the same names as
the first of the two petitions here printed. As there are several names
in each petition not found in the other, and as they differ in date
nearly three years, it has been thought advisable to print the earlier
petition here in full, with rules to indicate the position of the signa-
tures by pages.

The first of the petitions which follow is not dated, but the refer-
ence to the date of the first in the second ("in NoV: 1752 "), and
the action of the House of Representatives on November 28, 1752,
est-ablish its place chronologically as fully two and one-half years
earlier than the petition published in the Register.

The second petition here printed differs from the others widely in
the names of its signers. The three petitions probably contain the
signatures of a large majority of the adult male inhabitants of that
part of York County which was incorporated July 21, 1760, as Lincoln
County. The signatures are arranged in two columns in the first
petition, and in three in the second.



Province of the
Massachusetts Bay



[263] , f To the Honourable Spencer Phips Esq^ Lieu-

tenant Governour and Commander in Chief in
and over s^ Province. To the Hon'^'s; his
Majesty's Council for the same & the Honour-

^ able House of Representatives

ftumbly Shew

The Proprietors of that , Tract of Land lying on Both
sides of Kennebeck River which was granted to the late
Colony of New Plymouth in their Charter & afterwards by
that Colony granted to Antipas Boys & others Together with
Sundry of the Principal Settlers & Residents within the
Limits of said Tract



2 Lincoln County, Maine, Petitions.

That the Inhabitants of said Tract had formerly the Privilege of
holding a Court within that District & were vested with a peculiar
jurisdiction of matters arising among them in Subordination to the
Government of the late Colony of New Plymouth that of Later Times
the Courts- of Justice held in and for the County of york have exer-
cised Jurisdiction not only over your Petitioners Tract afor''. but also
over all Lands lying to the Eastward thereof to the utmost Limits of
this Province Eastward but how or by what Law they became pos-
sessed of that Jurisdiction Your Petitioners could never yet be able to
Discover That the great Distance that Suitors, Witnesses & Jurors
have to Travel from said Tract to York together with the Badness &
Danger of the Roads thither are a great Difificulty and Burden to
your Petitioners the Settlers on said Tract which together with the
perplexity arising from the Doubtfullness of such Courts Jurisdiction
over them and Danger that the Judgements obtained in such Courts
in Local Actions arising among them may some time or other be
called [264] in Question and Reversed are a great Discouragement
to your Petitioners in their Settlement and that it would very much
Facilitate and Promote the further peopling and Improving said
Tract and Render the Expensive Efforts of your Petitioners the
Proprietors to Settle the same more Successful if said District was
erected into a Distinct County Your Petitioners therefore pray your
Honour and the Honourable Houses would please to take the prem-
ises into your wise Consideration and make your Petitioners Tract
a for'', a Distinct and Seperate County with the usual Privileges and
Jurisdictions of a County or otherwise relieve your Petitioners upon
the premises as Your Wisdom shall Direct and Your Pef'^: &c

The Memorial of

Humbly Sheweth
That a great number of the Inhabitants of the County of York to the
Eastward of North Yarmouth, petitioned the Great tSi General Court
in NoV: 1752. to be formed into a Distinct & Seperate County, for
the reasons in said Petition mentioned, which Petition as we are in-
form'd was revived in Feb^: 1760. and then refered together with a
Petition from Falmouth for a New County to the next May Sessions
your Memorialists having long experienced the great charge incon-
venience & hardship of attending upon Courts at a Distance.
Humbly pray your Honours

that a New County may be formed in the Easterly part of the County
of York to be bounded on the West by a line to run from some part
of Casco=Bay to Amorescoggin River and from thence by Amores-
coggin River and all that part of the Province which lies to the East-
ward of such a line may be included in said New County ; and that
Pownallborough may be the Shire or County Town, and have the
Priviledge of being Represented at the General Court, all which will
greatly accommodate the Inhabitants and have a great tendency to
incourage the Growth & Settlements of that part of the Province.
