Notice biographique

In 1799 brothers Alex and John Fraser left Scotland, at very young ages, to settle in New Brunswick. Their family eventually followed. John Fraser was made captain of the local militia company in Gloucester County; Alex Fraser eventually returned to Scotland. Their descendants moved to southern New Brunswick in the 19th century.

Portée et contenu

The collection contains a muster roll of Captain John Fraser's company of the 1st Battalion of Gloucester militia based in Bathurst, 1839-1842. It includes lists of men at each annual muster, with their rank. The roll covers the period of the Aroostook War when the militia was called out throughout New Brunswick. It includes a list of aliens resident in the district for each year.

Also included are three letters, 1799-1800, from Alex Fraser to his parents in Inverness-shire, Scotland. They recount his voyage from Fort Augustus to Glasgow, then onward to Cove (Cobh), Ireland and St. Vincent in the West Indies. There is a letter dated 1812, appointing Alex Fraser to the militia in Inverness. An album containing coloured Christmas cards and a very few Easter and St. Valentine's cards from 1878 is also included. Four photographs of the family have been transferred to the Photograph Section.
