I am looking for a definition of "Check Lot".
I have found a deed description that calls for "Check Lot #7", for example. Can anyone define the term "check" as it is used here. It is 1 of 16 lots that makes up what appears to be a "School Lot". Here in Maine the funds obtained from the sale of the timber on said School Lot or the sale of the property itself, was to go to the school(s) in the town. The Check Lots started with #1 in the SE corner, north through Lot #4, then west to Lot #5, then south through Lot #8, then west to 9, north through 12, west to 13, then north through 15.
Thank you for any insight you may have.
