Administrative history

Clarence Newton (1878-1945) and his brother Frank Newton (1869-1954) operated a general store in Grand Harbour on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, from 1897 or earlier until at least 1954. In 2002, the store still exists in the building used by Frank Newton in the 1950s. Although it is still referred to as "The Newton Store," it is no longer operated by the family. It is not known whether this building is the same one used by Clarence Newton in 1897.

Custodial history

These documents were collected by members of the Grand Manan Museum Executive Board.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of Clarence Newton's cash book, 1897-1898, listing all assets of the company and their location and value. Also included are the Newton Bros. Ltd. account books, 1950-1954 listing account details and payouts for expenses and salaries incurred in operating a store. The purchase journal lists the names of suppliers, the cost of stock and shipping, and expenses related to stock.

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition

The documents were transferred from the Museum to the Archives in 1987.
