Custodial history

Scope and content

Fonds consists of mostly marsh records, a bill, a letter, and a photoprint. The marsh records (Tantramar marshes) were probably kept by his great-great-grandfather, Thomas Anderson, Jr. (1775-1852), Commissioner of Sewers. Thomas’ name appears in several of the documents, one being the survey map (1825), along with the name of his son, John. The bill for the schooner “Bella” is signed by G. (George) Anderson, shipbuilder and master mariner, Sackville, New Brunswick. Anderson names appearing in the letter, T.R. (Captain Thomas Rheese Anderson) and Albert, are first cousins.
