Map
Plan of part of the Eastern Shore,1753, map 56-2-1
Maine Historical Society, Map

This manuscript map numbered 56-2-1 was created by Thomas Johnston in 1753 and shows the granted land on both sides of the Kennebec River, church buildings in Brunswick, Falmouth and North Yarmouth and the town of Norridgewock. Two compass roses adorn the map along with two men in the cartouche stating, "God hath Planted us here, God deeded this land to us." Great controversy surrounded this and subsequent maps created by Thomas Johnston showing land ownership along the Kennebec. This is considered the first Johnston map, 1753.
