Kentucky. Office of the Lieutenant Governor
This series documents the land appropriations awarded to veterans, soldiers, and other settlers since the 1700s. It tracks the initial conveyances to veterans of the French and Indian War under King George III of England when he issued the Proclamation of 1763. The grants were awarded in lieu of cash. Land grants authorized by these military warrants can be found in the Virginia and Old Kentucky Land Grant Series. After the Revolutionary War, Virginia continued and expanded the land grant system through its Land Law of 1779. Kentucky, in turn, reaffirmed the system after separation from Virginia with the Kentucky Act of 1796. The land grant system is still in use today as a method of appropriating Kentucky land. Structurally, the process has changed very little sin ce its inception. "Patenting" refers to the system of land appropriation used to transfer land from the Commonwealth to an individual or group of individuals. All deeds track back to an original patent recorded in the Kentucky Land office. Land patenting consists of four steps, all of which must be completed before a title is granted. Step #1 is the warrant (certificate, order) which authorizes a survey to be made. It does not specify the exact location of the land, with some exceptions; however, present-day County Court Orders (Warrants) are to be used within the county in which they are issued. (*In addition to 261 Volumes, 145,000 Surveys) Series contains: Warrants authorizing surveys; name of warrant recipient and reason for warrant issuance; original surveys with the land location (including original surveys by Daniel Boone); Governor grant-transferring title from state to individual; supporting documents; affidavits, wills, receipt of payment
