Settlers' Blocks on Norfolk Island 1796

This map is an online re-creation of Settlers Blocks on Norfolk Island 1796.

Click on the coloured areas on the map for more information, or on one of the links below to show that location on the map. Zoom in to see what exists at each location. Note the colours have been added based on another map produced at the time, the Plan of the Settler's Lots and the Ground Cultivated for Publick on Norfolk Island 1796. As noted on this map, red indicates lots of 60-acres each granted and leased to seamen and marine settlers, yellow are lots of 10-15 acres each leased and granted to men who are 'become free', and carmine (deeper red) is held by officers. As there are differences between these two maps (e.g. mismatching of land parcel numbers) there may be errors in the colour of some blocks. (see State Library of New South Wales catalogue entry)

Note: Land parcel boundaries are not exact due to the difficulties involved in migrating original maps for use with newer technologies.
