King George's War: 1744-1748
King George's War is begun between Britain and France. The short and tenuous peace is over.
French raiding parties from Fort St. Frédéric terrorize New England and New York. Lt. Col. Michel Marin leads an expedition to the Saratoga region where he sets villages ablaze and takes hundreds of prisoners. Fort Number 4 in Charleston, New Hampshire is attacked 5 times in 1746. There is much talk but no significant action on the part of the British to end these forays of destruction.
France and England sign the Treaty of Aix-la-Chappelle which officially ends King George's War.
"All the land along the lake shore in the north part of the County having been granted in Seigniories by the French Government, and the grantees having failed to make any permanent improvement, all these grants were declared forfeited."**
