POYAIS. LONDON. Certificate of 1000 Acres. black. No 401. Folds. Gregg Ref. 39. This is a late issue of a Poyais land grant. It was sold in competition with, and were not part of, the land certificates sold by MacGregor, although they used the same geographic description. The man behind the scheme was Robert Charles Frederick, grandson of Mosquito King George II. According to Gregg's publication, he "shovelled" such quantities of grants out the door that, if one added up the land so granted, no land remained for his own people! Extremely rare type.
