Some of my father's
lines removed from New England to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia after
the Revolutionary War. Others just showed up ;-). Here are a few of
BELDING is said to have been b. 29
May 1754 or 1760 New Haven, CT, d. about 1849 Chance
Harbour, Saint John Co, NB. He m. Mabel BRISTAL
about 1782 CT. They came as Loyalists 1783. Am trying
to prove Daniel is the son of Jared BELDING
and wife ...
for any info on the name BEYNON in
Nova Scotia. Morgan or James BEYNON
m. Hannah WILLIAMS before 1812 in
NS, having Joseph Williams BEYNON
NS about 1813. Joseph Wms BEYNON
was of Saint John by 1838, w/ no sign of his parents.
Where in Nova Scotia were they? Hannah WILLIAMS
was a n older sister to Olivia Hovey WILLIAMS
b. 1794, who m. William WOOD 1817
DALEY/DEALY b. c1735, is assumed
to be the son of John DALEY, one
of the Irish immigrants arriving at York, Maine about
1735. York's militia list on 1757 included both men.
Before 1762, John and David DALEY
had settled at Penobscot. Nothing can be found in
later records for John DALEY. In
1783, David DALEY removed to St Andrews,
New Brunswick where he rec'd land as a Penobscot Loyalist
w/ wife Mehitable WEBBER, whom he
m. in 1755 at York, ME, and 4 ch: George, Sarah, Mary
and Joseph. Joseph DALEY was of Saint
John, NB by 1800 w/ his wife Abigail d/o another Loyalist,
for any info on John DARRAH (spelled
DAROUGH on his marr rec), b. c 1834
New Brunswick, d. Saint John NB 13 Mar 1899. He m.
Rebecca JONES 4 Dec 1860 Saint John.
They were both of Portland Parish.
HAMMOND was b. 13 Apr 1753 No. Yarmouth,
Cumberland Co, ME, s/o John HAMMOND
and Patience WEBBER. He m. Martha
BENNETT 16 Oct 1774 there. Zebedee
was among the Penobscot Loyalists who left Maine for
Saint Andrews, NB in 1783 with wf and at least 5 ch:
Abigail, Patunel, Martha, Nathaniel and Zebedee Jr.
Abigail, probably the oldest, m. Joseph DALEY
and went to Saint John. Zebedee Jr, prob the youngest
b. c1781, d. 1798 Fredericton. What became of Nathaniel
and Patunel? Nathaniel was part of the Kings NB Regmt
(aka NB Provincials) and was in Fredericton in 1798.
Did he stay there? Zebedee HAMMOND
Sr. died at Saint Andrews in 1802. What exact date?
What happened to his wife?
HEPBURN b. c1775 Scotland, d. 18
Nov 1842 Musquash, Saint John Co, NB. He m. Mabel
BELDING 1802 Saint John. I need info
on their children. #1 Question -- Was Mary HEPBURN
b. c1827 who m. Joseph DALEY c 1860
Alexander's dau or granddau? Her burial permit says
father was Edmund HEPBURN. I did
find ref to an Edmund HEPBURN of
Hepburn's Basin who was born Ireland(!), but nothing
else. Who was he?
John HOWARD was b. 6 Oct 1742 (according
to a family Bible), and d. 1 Jul 1824 Hampton, Kings
Co, NB. He. m. 1) Lucy ? about 1765 NY and had 8 ch.
The 7 youngest were lost at sea w/ Lucy in the Fall
of 1779 while enroute to Halifax. He m. 4) Patience
HOWARD d/o Edward HOWARD
& Phoebe HART of Dutchess Co,
NY (formerly of Dartmouth, MA). I am trying to prove
that John HOWARD was not b. 1742,
but rather, Oct 1734, the s/o John HOWARD
of Simsbury, CT. Both John and a brother Elisha HOWARD
were of Dutchess County during that time, and this
birthdate more closely matches his age in military
James KERR, b. December 1754 in Dumfrieshire,
was bapt. 16 Dec 1754 in Ecclefechan (Hoddam Parish
), Dumfrieshire, s/o Thomas KERR.
In 1773, he went to Norfolk, Virginia to join a brother.
He joined the British forces when the "troubles
broke out" and later married Elizabeth BROWN
in 1784 in New York. They quickly removed to Ecclefechan
where, supposedly, three children were born before
March 1786 when they were in London, preparing for
a trip to Nova Scotia to settle. James' brother was
John KERR, who owned and commanded
the schooner "Fannay" at Virginia, sailing
with dispatches to Norfolk, later going to New York.
In Sept 1783, John KERR returned
to Scotland where he married twice and had children.
I would love to find more about this family in Scotland,
as there were quite a few KERR entries
in Ecclefechan's records, but no proven connection.
any info on Job STANLEY/STANDLEY
b. c1760 in the US, and d. 6 Jan 1854 Mispec, Saint
John Co, NB. He m. Isabella DYER
c1795 prob near Provincetown, Barnstable Co, MA. Where
did he come from? They lived Provicetown 1800, but
purchased land in Newmarket, NH in 1801. Sons Job
& Joseph b. Portsmouth, NH 1803 and 1804. Job
Sr was supposedly of Maine in 1810 when son Andrew
was born, and living in Mispec, NB by 1817. There
are many ties to the STANLEYS of
Grand Manan, but how is Job related to John STANLEY,
b. c1790 England of Grand Manan?
for info on the children of Joseph WILLIAMS
who m. Hannah HOVEY 2 Jan 1770 at
Horton, NS. They had Charles, William, Elizabeth b.
1775 (m. Thomas COX), Hannah b. 1777, Nancy, and Joseph
Jr. Did this Hannah m. BEYNON? Was
there a younger dau Olivia Hovey WILLIAMS
b. 1791? Or , did Charles b. 1771 and William b. 1773
have families, including a Hannah and Olivia?
to locate parents for William WOOD,
b. c1794 Cornwallis, Kings Co, Nova Scotia, who m.
Olivia Hovey WILLIAMS in 1817 at
Rawdon, Hants Co, NS. Cannot seem to tie him in to
any of the WOOD families. He and family came to Saint
John 1826, and he d. 29 May 1866 Saint John , NB.
Is he a son of Marble WOOD and wife
Rebecca RAWLINS who b. d. 1813?
