1734, Council at Fort George
Article regarding the Council held at Fort George in New York on November 5, 1734; attending were Gov. William Cosby, the secretary and Chief
Justice, as well as others. The proposals were to allow a land grant for those immigrants seeking to settle in New York; although English Protestants are
envisioned, others European escaping the "cruel yoke of Popery and arbitrary power" would also be granted land. However there would be a annual fee to
the Crown under this plan, although there would also be a speedy naturalization process. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of titles originally held
by the New York Historical Society Library).
