Biographical history

John Flewelling and his wife Mary came to New Brunswick in August 1783 with his three sons, Thomas, Joseph and Francis and his daughter, Maplet Elizabeth (married Samuel Munro in 1813). The party included Thomas' wife and their nine children aboard the ship "Cyrus".

Thomas Flewelling (1736-1809) settled in Greenwich parish, Kings County. In 1787, he was a claimant to the British government for losses suffered in America. He was married to Elizabeth Griffin and died in Kings County in 1809.

Their children were Adam (1761-1816); Elizabeth (b.1763); Enos (1765-1837); George (b. 1767); William (b.1769); Sarah (b. 1771), who married Thomas Theale; Caleb (1773-1858); Joseph (b. 1776); Thomas Jr. (1779-1860); Jacob (b.1781), who married Sarah Second and moved to Upper Canada; and Ezekial (b. 1783).

Two other two sons of John Flewelling, Abel and Morris, followed their parents and siblings later. Morris settled at Carters Point. Abel (b. 1746) became magistrate and overseer of the poor at Greenwich. Later he moved to Maugerville where he died in 1814. He married Abigail (b. 1752).
