259 The following story was told to Christine Wolverton Davies on January 20, 2000 by Pauline Forrest based on information given to her by a resident of Northampton many, many years ago: "In the second half of the 19th century, an attractive young woman named Elizabeth Woolverton grew up in her parents' home in Northampton, New Brunswick. She was popular with friends of both sexes. Two young men were especially attracted to her. Their names were William Howard Kearney and Henry Auguustus Orr. Little is remembered about Mr. Orr's family. Mr. Kearney was a member of a prosperous farming family. "Kearney was deeply in love with Elizabeth and hoped to marry her. He went to Woodstock and purchased a pretty engagement ring in a velvet-covered box. There was a gathering being held at the Kirk, the community house of worship and Kearney planned to drive Elizabeth to her home following the meeting. On the way he wanted to give her the ring as he proposed marriagege. "On that particular evening, Kearny was longer than usual in completing his share of the barn chores. He hurriedly harnessed the family driving horse, hooked up the sleigh and travelled toward the Kirk. Arriving there as the meeting waas just about over, he waited outside with horse and sleigh in readiness. Imagine his disappointment when Elizabeth appeared arm in arm with Henry Orr. Kearney's disappointment turned to anger and the two young men began to argue. The argument became a fight with both young men rolling in the snow. A knife came into play and soon Orr lay on the ground with his blood staining the snow. Mr. Orr did not survive this encounter. (February 12, 1867) "Kearney left the scene, returning to his parents's home. He was charged with murder. When the trial was held, Kearney's lawyer obtained an acquittal (September 26, 1867). Soon young Mr. Kearney left for western Canada or western United States where he remained for many years. "Later Elizabeth Woolverton married John James Rogers of Northampton. The Rogers had 3 sons and 4 daughters. After Mr. Rogers died, Elizabeth married a Mr. Patchell from Whittepitlack, Maine and resided there for 10 or more years. Folllowng Mr. Patchell's death, Elizabeth returned to Northampton to live out her remaining years with her son Harry T. Rogers. When Elizabeth died, at a ripe old age, she was buried in the Kirk cemetery. It is reported that Henry Orr is buried iin the same burial ground. "In the 1930's, Hedley and Cora Slipp purchased the Kearney homestead. One of the stipulations in the bill of sale stated that Mrs. Kearney, the wdown of William Kearney's brother, was to live with the Slipp family for a stipulated time. Cora Slipp's daughter-in-law told me that Mrs. Kearney had shown her (Cora) a pretty little velvet-covered box containing a lovely ring given to her by her brother-in-law many years before. She told Cora that all the y years Kearney had been away, the ring in its velvet box lay buried under a floorboard in the farm woodshed." NB Vital Statistics Vol. 25 #2009: Trial of W. H.

263 The York County (New Brunswick) deeds contain a deed executed on April 12, 1814, after Darius' death, conveying Lot 26, 200 acres, on the west side of the St. John river, between lots owned by Alexander Kearney and John Larlee, Junior, from Johom John Larlee, surgeon, and Margaret, his wife, Parish of Northampton, to "my daughter Mary Dickinson and her sons Peter Dickinson Junr. and John Dickinson" of the Parish of Wakefield. The deed was witnessed by James Foster and Peter Dickinsonn. A second deed, executed January 5, 1822, by Robert and Mary McGlaughlin, Peter Dickinson Junr., Lydia Dickinson, his wife, and John Dickinson, all of the Parish of Wakefield, conveyed Lot 26 "conveyed by Dr. John Larlee (deceased) and wiffe Margaret, to Mary McLaughlin, 'then Mary Dickinson' and Peter Dickinson and John Dickinson" to Daniel Currier of Gagetown, Queens County. This deed was witnessed by James and Martha Upham. This deed would seem to indicate that sometime after Darius' death, Mary remarried.

268 Very little is known about John Larlee's origins except that he was born in France and was a Huguenot and that he came to Canada most likely sometime in the 1750's. The family lore has always been that when he came to Canada, John changed his n name to Larlee. Emma Mae Earle, in her book Footprints of New Brunswick, makes reference to the French name L'Arvis, but I have not been able to find any other references to this surname. However, from my understanding of social history in ththe 18th century, I believe I can extrapolate some basic background for John. John Larlee was probably a younger son of a Huguenot family who was at least well to do and possibly landed gentry. I believe he was born sometime between 1735 and 1740. He probably attended a university and may have studied medicine. From my (albeit limited) reading of 18th century medicine, I think it's more likely that he was a surgeon rather than a physician. Once his training was complete, John may have found life difficult in France since Louis IV had rescinded most of the privileges extended to the Huguenots following the Religious Wars. I have found two references that present two possibilities for his presence in Canada: From t the book Three Spades Deep: The Stronach Saga by Anne Stronach Crocker: "Margaret's mother [Elizabeth] was the daughter of Dr. Larley of France, (according to a booklet, "Reunion of the Family of Parker and Lily Bent, 1980") who was a surgeon in Montcalm's army in Quebec. Dr. Larley was connected to the Royal Family of Bourbon." From the book A history of the Canadian west to 1870-71; being a history of Rupert's Lane (the Hudson's Bay Company's territory) and of the North-West TeTerritory (including the Pacific slope) by Arthur Silver Morton, page 254: "In1757 La Corne's Fort St. Louis was closed; in 1759, Fort Paskoyac. That summer a Frenchman name Jean-Baptiste Larlee came down from this last post to York Fort to seek employment. He was sent off to England. He reported that the two posts on the Saskatchewan were closed, but that Frenchmen were building where Henday had proposed that the Company should open a post (at Moose Lake). By 1760 all the French posts on the Saskatchewan were closed." A second reference in the book on page 267 states that he was "taken into the service" but does not indicate what he did. These references have not been fully verified. I am waiting for further informmation from the Hudson's Bay Company archives and I have contacted a separate source regarding the Bent booklet. It is possible that John Larlee was a surgeon in Montcalm's army. Where a civilian practice may have been difficult to obtain, his services would have been welcome to the army, especially since this would have been about the time the Seven Years War (the French-Indian War in North America) was beginning. By the end of 1759, Montcalm was dead and the French in disarray. I suspect many of the surviving French soldiers remained in Canada after the war. On the other hand, if John Larlee was the same Jean-Baptiste Larlee who showed up at York Fort in the summer of 1759, I don't see how he could have been wiith Montcalm's army. Fort Paskoyac was located on the Saskatchewan River and York Factory II (the York Fort open at that time) was located on Hudson's Bay in what is now Manitoba. Both locations are well east of Montreal and there couldn't have been much, if any, fighting going on there. That would mean that John would have traveled to Canada on his own and possibly joined the ranks of the Coureur de Bois (woods runners) who were fur traders without licenses to trade. If he did, hi his skills as a surgeon would have been welcome on their trips into the interior to trade with the Indians. It would also have been an opportunity to earn the money necessary to start a practice or purchase property allowing him to settle downn. As the French lost ground and forts were closed, this life would have gotten harder bringing him to the York Fort and the English. By 1760 the actual fighting of the war was over and the authorities in Halifax, Nova Scotia were actively seeking settlers for all the new land now available. They sent out proclamations to both Great Britain and the colonies to the south. The greatest initial response came from the colonies. One group in particular was from Essex County in Massachusetts. The first group of settlers arrived in 1763 and formed the beginning of the settlement of Maugerville. Among this group were Jacob Barker and his family, including his daughter, Margaret. John Larlee appeared in Maugerville two yeyears later, in 1765. While it is fairly clear that he was not part of the original group from Massachusetts, no doubt his medical skills would have made him welcome. At any rate, when a grant was finally issued to the settlers in October 1765, he was listed as one of the grantees. Searching the Grantbook Database: Results LALLE, JOHN Volume: A, page 122, Grant number 89 Original province of registration: Nova Scotia Nova Scotia registration date: 1765/10/31 New Brunswick registration date: 1785/02/07 Accompanying plan: No Acreage: 500 acres Place and County: MAUGERVILLE, Sunbury County Comments: Sometime after receiving the grant John Larlee married Margaret Barker probably between 1766 and 1770, however, no reecord of their marriage has been found to date. The next record of John Larlee is found in the "Studholm Report." In 1783, Guilford Studholm, who was the Commander of Fort Howe in Saint John, was faced with having to find land for the influx of Loyalists arriving from the newly formed United States. He sent a party of men up the Saint John River with instructions to find out who was settled in the various townships, what title they might have to those lands and what their loyaltiies to the crown might be. In the report for the Township of Burton is the following: "9. John Larley has a wife and 5 children, been on about 16 years, built 2 or 3 log houses or buildings and cleared about 15 acres of land. His character good as a subject." This information would seem to indicate that John sold his property in Maugerville about 1768 and moved across the river. In any case, in 1787 he was granted 201 acres in Burton.

John Beardsley, the Anglican minister at Maugerville, traveled up river. Rev. Beardsley stopped in at a number of the homes, baptizing over forty children and adults frorom the families he visited. All seven of John's children were baptized according to records from the Maugerville Anglican Church. Six were baptized on August 3, 1789, the seventh, Elizabeth, was baptized on September 17, 1789. Rosanna had nonot been born yet. John appears to have remained in Northampton until his death. There are references that state he traveled extensively up and down the river treating the sick and injured. After his death, it is possible that Margaret went to live with her daughter, Jane. Margaret lived to the age of 96 and died in 1842. She was buried with her daughter, Jane, and son-in-law, Joseph. -------------------------------- REFERENCES (Not indicated in narrative): Provincial Archives of New Brunswick, 1999-2000. http://gnb.ca/archives/default.htm Irene Doyle, http://members.tripod.com/~GenNB/hampton.htm Helen M.

On the other hand, if John Larlee was the same Jean-Baptiste Larlee who showed up at York Fort in the summer of 1759, I don't see how he could have been with Montcalm's army. Fort Paskoyac was located on the Saskatchewan River and York Factory II (the York Fort open at that time) was located on Hudson's Bay in what is now Manitoba. Both locations are well east of Montreal and there couldn't have been much, if any, fighting going on there. That would mean that John would have traveled to Canada on his own and possibly joined the ranks of the Coureur de Bois (woods runners) who were fur traders without licenses to trade. If he did, his skills as a surgeon would have been welcome on their trips into the interior to trade with the Indians. It would also have been an opportunity to earn the money necessary to start a practice or purchase property allowing him to settle down. As the French lost ground and forts were closed, this life would have gotten harder bringing him to the York Fort and the Engli

By 1760 the actual fighting of the war was over and the authorities in Halifax, Nova Scotia were actively seeking settlers for all the new land now available. They sent out proclamations to both Great Britain and the colonies to the south. The greatest initial response came from the colonies. One group in particular was from Essex County in Massachusetts. The first group of settlers arrived in 1763 and formed the beginning of the settlement of Maugerville. Among this group were Jacob Barker and his family, including his daughter, Margaret. John Larlee appeared in Maugerville two years later, in 1765. While it is fairly clear that he was not part of the original group from Massachusetts, no doubt his medical skills would have made him welcome. At any rate, when a grant was finally issued to the settlers in October 1765, he was listed as one of the grantees.

Comments:

Sometime after receiving the grant John Larlee married Margaret Barker probably between 1766 and 1770, however, no record of their marriage has been found to date.

The next record of John Larlee is found in the "Studholm Report." In 1783, Guilford Studholm, who was the Commander of Fort Howe in Saint John, was faced with having to find land for the influx of Loyalists arriving from the newly formed United States. He sent a party of men up the Saint John River with instructions to find out who was settled in the various townships, what title they might have to those lands and what their loyalties to the crown might be. In the report for the Township of Burton is the following:

"9. John Larley has a wife and 5 children, been on about 16 years, built 2 or 3 log houses or buildings and cleared about 15 acres of land. His character good as a subject."

This information would seem to indicate that John sold his property in Maugerville about 1768 and moved across the river. In any case, in 1787 he was granted 201 acres in Burton.

He was there in 1789 when Rev. John Beardsley, the Anglican minister at Maugerville, traveled up river. Rev. Beardsley stopped in at a number of the homes, baptizing over forty children and adults from the families he visited. All seven of John's children were baptized according to records from the Maugerville Anglican Church. Six were baptized on August 3, 1789, the seventh, Elizabeth, was baptized on September 17, 1789. Rosanna had not been born yet.

John appears to have remained in Northampton until his death. There are references that state he traveled extensively up and down the river treating the sick and injured. After his death, it is possible that Margaret went to live with her daughter, Jane. Margaret lived to the age of 96 and died in 1842. She was buried with her daughter, Jane, and son-in-law, Joseph.
