This map is made from the geometry found in the book A Brief History of the Towne of Sudbury in Massachusetts 1639 - 1939. See the image below. And it is layered on the 1856 Map of Middlesex County by Henry F. Walling.
The blue line represents Sudbury at its maximum extent. There were 3 grants that formed the town and several to individuals.
Hudson, Alfred S. History of Sudbury, Massachusetts 1638 - 1889. Town of Sudbury, 1889.
Notes on grants are in Chapter IV. Page 57.
Of course, these grants were made by the Mass Bay Colony without regard to the people who were here before the English.
