Biographical history

Thomas MacKinlay was a draughtsman from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

Custodial history

This property plan was donated to the MacNaught History Centre and Archives as part of the City of Summerside historical collection. It is unknown how it came to be in the possession of the City although signs of smoke damage indicate it may have been in the Town Hall, which burned in 1955.

Scope and content

This single collected item consists of a certified copy of a property plan by Thomas MacKinlay showing locations of land in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, willed by Joseph Green to his daughter Gulielma Maria Green.

Joseph Green (1799-1869) of Summerside was the youngest son of Daniel Green, a United Empire Loyalist who settled on the edge of Bedeque Bay in an area to become known as Green's Shore and later as Summerside. When Daniel died in 1825, his estate of approximately 1000 acres was divided among his sons. Joseph received land between what is now Duke and Central Streets and raised his family on the original farm. He married Hannah Baker (1801-1850) with whom he had 9 children. After his death in 1869, the land was further divided and willed to his children including his third child Gulielma Maria Green (1833-1921). When Gulielma received the lots in 1873, she was a widow with three children, having married Asher Black in 1861. When she re-married in 1877, her new husband James A. Reid signed an agreement relinquishing any rights to her inherited property.

The original plan was drawn in 1872 to be annexed to a deed at the Registrar's Office. It was copied the following year and certified by T. Kelly, a local barrister, on 5 June 1873. The lands shown in the top section, on a scale of 100 feet to 1 inch, are town lots between Duke and Central Streets with the harbour to the south and Market St. North as the northern border. The lands shown in the bottom half, on a scale of 4 chains to 1 inch, are referred to as the "Rear Lands" and show land north of Market St. North with lots drawn on Central, Cedar and Duke Streets. Another small section of the plan, drawn also on a scale of 4 chains to 1 inch, shows land outside the town area, labelled as the W. William Farm. Portion No.1 being allotted to Gulielma is colour-coded in red. Four other colours were used to code lands for additional persons named in the will.
