The downtown area of Burlington was originally a land grant given to Joseph Brant by which king? How large was the grant?

The grant was presented to the Mohawk war chief for his services during the American Revolutionary War by George III. It consisted of 1,380 hectares (3,450 acres) on the lakeshore overlooking Lake Geneva (Hamilton Harbour), Lake Ontario and the Beach Strip. The tract of land became know as Brant's Block.

I remember a friend telling me about this event. She loved it, and I would love to be involved in something like this. http://fireplaceandgrillexperts.com/Gas-Logs/
