History

Brunswick Webster Fox, the son of Fannie Fowler and George Fox, was born at Gagetown, New Brunswick, 14 March 1853. He married Charlotte Elizabeth Smith, probably in the 1880s, and they had four children: Caleb, Estella Victoria, Eva Beatrice, and Fanny Louise. Brunswick W. Fox taught in public schools for 10 years and also in a singing school. Later he moved his family to Central Kingsclear where he helped Henry Alline Palmer and Jane Douglas Cliff operate a 200-acre farm. He died at Fairville, near Saint John, N.B., on 14 December 1934.

The Fox children stayed in New Brunswick for most of their lives. Caleb Fox was a railway man and worked both in the Canadian West and on the Valley Railway in New Brunswick, between Saint John and Edmundston. He died suddenly in 1919, at age 37. Beatrice married Henry Allen Strange on 11 September 1907. Fanny and Estella Fox moved from the Palmer house at Central Kingsclear, York County to a bungalow in Silverwood, near Fredericton, in 1966, after the Mactaquac Dam was completed. Fanny died in 1971 of a stroke. Stella Fox was a school teacher, teaching primarily in the Penniac, Douglas and Fredericton areas. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Kingsclear. At the time of her death, on 2 July 1990, she was a resident of York Manor Nursing Home in Fredericton.
