Deeds of Mount Desert Island

part of the Mount Desert Island Cultural History Project

(updated 17 November 2014)



to the Deeds of Mount Desert Island home page, part of the Mount Desert Island Cultural History Project.

Purpose of this web page:

The purpose of this web page is to provide basic deed information and pertinent notes so individual researchers will not have to “reinvent the wheel” by tracking down the same material that others have already found. The pages linked to below focus primarily, but not exclusively, on (1) working forward from the earliest land grants of the property shown on the Peters Plan and the Salem Towne, Jr., map and (2) working backward from the land ownership of Acadia National Park by the United States government to the Peters Plan and Salem Towne, Jr., map. A separate, recently created, web page will list all deeds (only one deed now listed) of Acadia National Park. Another focus is tracing the deeds to land of the island’s cemeteries. The ultimate goal of this page is to include all land on Mount Desert Island.

How this page is organized:

The first portion of this (very long) web page reports in chronological order the steps involved in the early land grants that lead to the Salem Towne map (western side of MDI) and the Peters Plan (eastern side), and contains links to the supporting deeds from the Hancock County Registry of Deeds (Ellsworth, Maine). Bracketed material (e.g., [1:426]) refers to the book (1 in this example) and page(s) (426 in this example) of documents in the Hancock County Registry of Deeds. The second portion begins with an image of the Peters Plan on which horizontal bands have been drawn, and parcels falling (more or less) within each band have been numbered from west to east. Below the map is a table with basic information about each parcel. When deeds for a parcel are located, a link will be provided that will take you to a web page about that parcel. The third portion of this web page contains an image of the Salem Towne map and a table, following the pattern of the Peters Plan.

How to contribute:

If you have old deeds that you are willing to lend for scanning or photographing, of if you have any related material, please e-mail, call 207-276-9323, or write to MDI Deeds, c/o Mount Desert Island Historical Society; P. O. Box 653; Mount Desert, ME 04660.



April – grant by Louis XIV to “de la Motte Cadillacc” [referenced in 1:426]


June 29 – Commonwealth of Massachusetts “grant” to Monsieur DeGregoire of all of April 1691 grant [see above] on condition of naturalization of Monsieur and Madame DeGregoire [1:426] October 29 – permission for Bartholomy and Maria Theresa DeGregoire for naturalization of themselves and their three children (Pierre, Nicholas, and Maria) [2:199 (beginning near bottom of page)–200] November 2 – naturalization of Bartholomy and Maria Theresa DeGregoire [no mention of children] with Dr. Andre Carrente as their French translator [2:200 (beginning near bottom of page)] November 21 – petition by Bartholomy and Maria Theresa DeGregoire to the General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for establishment of a boundary line separating land of the DeGregoires from land of the Commonwealth [1:427 (top third of page)] November 22–23 – petition of November 21 [see above] granted by the General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (passed Nov. 22 by the Senate, Nov. 23 by the House of Representatives). Samuel Thompson Esq. named to work with the DeGregoires in establishing the boundaries [1:427 (middle third of page)] December – Supreme Judicial Court (in session adjourned from August 1787), responding to petition by the DeGregoires for division of their land from that of John Bernard, appointed James Sullivan to represent Bernard and appointed William Lithgow Jr., Nathaniel [Thuring or Thewing?], and Steven Jones to make the partition [part of 2:485 (beginning just above middle of page), 486, and 487]


June/July – DeGregoires’ report to Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts that William Lithgow Jr. and Nathaniel [Thuring or Thewing?] declined appointment and petition to the Court to appoint others and subsequent appointment by Supreme Judicial Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts of James Sullivan of Boston to represent John Bernard’s interest and Steven Jones, Nathan Jones, and Thomas Richardson to partition the island [part of 2:485 (beginning just above middle of page), 486, and 487]


January 28 – outline of French grant [note: this is not the division of MDI between the DeGregoires and Bernard]; survey by John Peters based on instructions received from Nathan Jones Esq. and General Samuel Thompson [1:428 (bottom two-thirds of the page)] August 13 – response by Samuel Thompson to 22–23 November 1787 directive to Thompson [1:427 (beginning near bottom of page)–428 (top portion of page)]


November 28 – The DeGregoires were in debt to Perez Morton, of Boston, for 137 pounds, 6 shillings, and 8 pence. They were also in debt to Joseph De La Tombe, the consul of France, who was residing in Boston, for 65 pounds and 8 shillings, which he “kindly and benevolently advanced us in cash at our request to aid and assist us in our distresses and necessities.” To pay these debts, they mortgaged “two undivided fifth parts of our divided moiety of the island of Mount Desert … and also one undivided moiety of all our rights, title, interest, and estate … in and to all [our] lands on the mainland lying on each side of Jordan’s River”. The terms of the mortgage were that it was to be paid off on or before 28 November 1793 (i.e., a three-year mortgage) and that the amount due would be the two sums mentioned above plus “lawful interest”.
On 1 August 1792 (and recorded in 1:516–517), Perez Morton released the mortgage, noting that the DeGregoires had paid him 182 pounds and 17 shillings, and had paid Joseph De La Tombe 60 pounds, “with which he is content”.


February – report by Stephen Jones, Nathan Jones, and Thomas Richardson of the division of Mount Desert Island between the DeGregoires and John Bernard; specifically:
beginning above Mr. James Richardson’s, at a stake and stones at the head of the tide at the northern extremity of Mount Desert Sound;
from thence running N 38° W to a stake and stones upon the edge of the bank of high water mark upon the northern side of said island;
then easterly along by high water mark upon the northern side of said island;
then easterly along by high water mark down to and around the east end of said island;
then westerly by the shore to said Mount Desert Sound;
then northerly by the shore up said sound to the first mentioned bounds;
the whole of that part of said island to the westward of said sound and of said northerly line from the head of said sound to the northerly shore, to be the moiety or share of John Bernard Esq. [2:487 (beginning about one-fourth of the way down the page)] [It is likely that the above line was run earlier than this 1794 report. Nathan Jones and Thomas Richardson were sworn on 27 January 1789 to discharge their duty (no date for Stephen Jones), and the DeGregoires were selling parcels in March 1792. The dividing line described above has often been referred to as the “French Line”. Virginia Somes-Sanderson, on page 29 of her 1982 book The Living Past, said, “Mr. O. C. Nutting, a lumberman who died in 1972 at the age of ninety-eight, stated that when he was younger he knew exactly where the ‘French Line’ was laid and that markers could be found in the woods between Somesville and Indian Point.”]

Peters Plan

– The Peters Plan, or at least a common edition of the plan, has more than one lot with the same number or letter. For example, there are two lots numbered 81 and two lots designated as lot E. Also, some lots have no numbers or letters. To eliminate this confusion, each lot on the map below has been given a unique alphanumeric label, and deeds for those lots with shared or missing numbers or letters have been placed under the alphanumeric designation that corresponds to the description in the deed.
