    Cool New brunswick legend!

    Legends say that in 1542, a pirate vessel laden with plunder moved up the St. John River into Swan Lake. Near a rocky point, the ship was moored and the chests of treasure moved ashore. The pirates excavated a pit near the top of a hill, placed the treasure into the hole and covered it over. They then sunk their vessel in the lake and headed overland to Boston. The estimated $7,000,000 treasure cache has never been recovered.
    Anyone out there familiar with this legend or would have info to share would be greatly appreciated

    New brunswick legend!

    Rugger,
    Good day,
    I have heard of this legend,
    But sadly all the research had led me to a big Oh No!!
    All areas pertaining to land is now government owned,
    and cannot be accessed, furthermore areas that involve "this Treasure" the land, properties, coastal areas that surrounds possible locations are no longer accessible because of government regulations.
    I know I've tried to find information,
    Too and I've just hit one road block,
    After government road block.
    For two years.

    Sorry brother.
    It's a hard blow to the gut for me and anyone else..
    Good old government screws yeah,
    Everything for the hopefuls like us!!!

    Hello! Steve
    Sorry it took so long to reply.
    Have you considered doing a search at night?
    Using Google earth you can almost pin point the area.
    and from what I can determine the land in question is municipal owned park land.

    Hello guys, my name is Jason,I was flipping through killing time at work and noticed your post on swan lake, I have had an interest in this since I was a kid, I grew up in walking distance of the lake, and have walked around 90 percent of this area,both sides of my family owned property and both ends of the lake before the army took it over,however the date 1542 makes no since as Boston did not exist then! But many old timers have talked about this for years. Have lots of information but not much way of backing it up.

    I've been looking and looking for more info on this but have had no luck. You would think there would be some info especially if there is a ship sunk in the lake.

    I believe the story you mentioned was written by Noel Richard in his book or article entitled 'The Lost Treasure of New Brunswick'.
    If he is still around, you may wish to ask him for his source of that story.
    Here are many other New Brunswick treasure stories reported by Noel Richard: The Lost Treasure of New Brunswick,Canada
