New neighbours

Thomas Prince, in his Chronicles of the Annals of New England, records that on this day Sir William Alexander of Scotland, afterwards the Earl of Sterling, met with and prevailed on King James to assign Sir Ferdinando Gorges part of the New England Territory.  Sir Ferdinando was entrusted “with the affairs of this Country, advising with some of the Company, yields that Sir William should have a Patent of the North Eastern Part of New England, to be held of the Crown of Scotland and called NEW SCOTLAND.”  The grant will be issued tomorrow, when we will describe the provisions and the territory of the Plymouth Colony’s new northern neighbour.
