File consists of photocopies of microfilmed copies of Crown Grants for District Lots 21 and 22, Group 2, New Westminster District. These records are dated 12th, 1864, and show that the Hudson's Bay Company recieved Lots 19 (200 acres) and 21 (500 acres) as grants, and purchased Lot 22 (1500 acres) as a Crown Conveyance. These lots were originally part of the Hudson's Bay Farm, also known as the Langley Farm.
File consists of the following materials, provided by Heather Beattie, Archivist for the Hudson's Bay Company Archives (Winnipeg): I looked through nearly all of the Western Department land records in searching for the answers to your questions. I was unable to locate the original document granting the Langley Farm land to the HBC. I did find a document entitled “Statement of all Lands belonging to The Hudson’s Bay Company in the Western Department as on 31 January 1868” (HBCA H.1/6). It shows that Lot 20 Group II (2 acres) and Lot 21 Group II (500 acres) on the Official Survey of the District of New Westminster were a Crown Grant to the HBC on 12 April, 1864; Lot 22 Group II (noted as Langley Farm, 1500 acres) was purchased as a Crown Conveyance (it looks like the price is listed as 312 pounds – 10%). According to a letter from Alexander Munro to the London Secretary, dated 15th April 1884, Lot 10 Langley Farm (191 51/100 acres) was sold to a Mr. Stoddart for $5740 (HBCA B.226/b/47 vol.1, fo. 61). I have copied these records, as well as some other correspondence relating to the sale of Lot 10.
