HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY PETITIONS
William MERCER et al of Chamberlains in 1858, by instructions of Attorney General Mr. HOGSETT, pulled down a fence which  George CHEATER had placed across a public road they were then engaged in making, on the grounds the road encroached on his private property.  CHEATER sued for trespassing and they were obliged to pay a sum of money out of their private funds.
Hope this helps,

From reading the above, William Mercer took down the fence that George Cheater had put up across his own property (George’s), which the city was trying to make a public road on.  George Cheater sued the city for trespassing and the city had to pay him money out of their private funds. (Cheri)
 

 

In the 1835 October 24th, Medical report by Dr.Henry Stabb.
George Cheater is listed as being vaccinated for Small Pox.
Small Pox was a disease circulating through the communities of 
Chamberlains, Manuels, Topsail,Kelligrews, Fox Trap, Middle Bight,
Long Pond, Upper and Lower Gullies, Lance Cove.  He reported
vaccinating 187 children and 70 adults in these communities.  
George is listed as having 2 adults in his household 
as well as 3 children.
The complete list of names of those who were vaccinated can be 
found at the NGB site under the Harbour Main district, Historical
Articles.  They are also housed at the PANL GN 2/2 Volume 21.


CHAYTOR, Agnes E b. May 4 1850 Chamberlains to George Chaytor &
Elizabeth Atkinson #69405360 (birth from the IGI of LDS Center)

This entry was taken from the Latter Day Saints site.  It is possible that the last name for Elizabeth is wrong.  I have found actual church records with George Cheater of Chamberlains marrying Elizabeth Williams.
