Where is that valley?

I am intrigued by the story, found in Leona Austin's book (and elsewhere), that goes as follows:

"John McColl and two brothers came to Canada in 1804 [this date is in doubt] from Scotland. They received land from the Crown and settled in Northumberland County. There was a valley given these three brothers by a Crown Deed which is still in existence."

Does anyone know where this valley is and where the deed can be viewed? And who were the three brothers?

I'd appreciate any help.
