Abstract:

Under successive authorizations, the Land Office oversaw the management and sale of public lands in Maine for the Commonwealth during the first half of the 19th century. Among its duties were the receipt and filing of documents pertaining to events in Maine that related to its main purpose of managing lands. This administrative file documents the activities of the Commonwealth in responding to the threat of insurrection in Kennebec County in 1809. Consisting of a variety of materials, the file details the responses of the several involved agents of the government in Massachusetts and the District of Maine. The governor, Council, General Court, local sheriff and the justices of the common pleas are the government officials primarily represented.

The event that triggered the development of this series was a local dispute involving squatters and land owners in Kennebec County. The situation became so aggravated that armed persons began resisting the practices of land proprietors and Commonwealth officials, leading to the death of a surveyor Paul Chadwick, in the fall of 1809. The arrest and indictment of several local persons served to increase tensions, leading the government of Massachusetts to conclude that an insurrection was imminent. As a result of reciprocal communications between local officials and the central government, arrangements were made for a detachment of militia to support and preserve the administration of civil government in Kennebec County. Most of the documents relate to arrangements for this military presence. After a trial led to the acquittal of most of those indicted, the disturbance, known locally as the Malta War, came to an end.
