This map is a plan of nine hundred acres of land laid out near Stephen Staple's land of the J. Robinson lot in Topsham.
Robinson's lot was bordered by the Cathance River on the south, east and southwest and by the property of Stephen Stales on the northeast.
Scale [1:7920] 40 rods = inch. This is one of a collection of maps commissioned by the Pejepscot Proprietors.
The map number 31 was probably added later by John McKeen, Clerk to the Company.
