Petition of Francis Coop, a 66 year old Mi'kmaq man with a wife and seven children. His principal residence has been at the head of Ship Harbour River, where he has cleared about five acres. He asks for this land. The magistrate states that Coop is a very industrious and peacable man and has preserved order and loyalty among the other Mi'kmaq, and is well deserving to have land given to him to settle on in his old age. Recommended 200 acres that cannot be transferred to any other than his children.
