Dates of existence



Charles Knowlton S. Douglass, was born in Wellington Parish, Kent County, in 1852 to Robert and Betsey Ann Douglass. On 4 September 1888, he married Mary Ann Porter (1862-1939), and they had no fewer than six children: Robert William (1889-1963), Charles Gordon (b. 1891), Burwell (1893-1974), Winnifred Smith (b. 1894, m. Stewart), Gertrude Strathmore (1898-1975, m. Triggs), and Frederick Chalmers (1899-1951).

Charles Knowlton S. Douglass received his early training in surveying from his father and worked with other surveyors, most probably Alfred Layton, William John Layton, E.R. Rutledge and R.D. Jago. He may have received assistance from his son, Robert William. By the early 20th century, Charles Douglas was employed at Buctouche as a deputy land surveyor for the provincial Crown Land Department. He probably held that position for the remainder of his life. In addition to his government post, Charles Douglass ran his own surveying business, performing services for residents of Kent County. He was still working as a surveyor in 1928. Charles K. S. Douglass eventually sold his private business to J. C. Shever of Moncton, N.B. He died in 1929 and was buried in St. Lawrence Anglican Cemetery, Buctouche, Kent County.
