Notice biographique

George Godfrey Gilbert Scovil (1842-1915) was born in Kings County, New Brunswick, the eldest son of James John Micheau Scovil (1815-1892) and Charlotte Ann Greenslade (1818-1890), the daughter of William and Ann (Veysey) Greenslade of Springfield, Kings County. George G.G. Scovil married first Leah Spragg (1843-1907) in 1871 and secondly, in 1909, Annie I. McLeod, daughter of Angus McLeod of Halifax, Nova Scotia. George and Leah Scovil had 7 children: George Frederick (b. 1872) married Edith Coster; James Micheau (b. 1874) married Ella McLeod; Henry Elijah (b. 1877); Charlotte Ann (b. 1880); Amy Nichols (b. 1883) married Walter J. Trites of Salisbury, N.B.; and Ernest who lived in British Columbia.

George G.G. Scovil farmed for some time and kept a general store at Springfield, New Brunswick, for 25 years. He represented the parish as a councillor for 14 years, then resigned. George was elected member for Kings County in the New Brunswick Legislative Assembly from 1892 to 1908 when he was defeated. In 1909, he was appointed Superintendent of Dredging for the Maritime Provinces.

George G.G. Scovil served as captain of militia from at least 1866 onward. He probably took over the position from his cousin, Walter Bates Scovil (1823-1903), who was also his predecessor as MLA for Kings County, having served from 1856 to 1866.
