Custodial history

The custodial history of this fonds before it came to the Peninsula Heritage Inc. is largely unknown.

Scope and content

This fonds is broken down into five series, which are Historical Information, Miscellaneous, Correspondence, Genealogical Information, and an individual series for Raymond Paddock Gorham. Contained within it are vital records that pertain to the family, histories and accounts, genealogical reports, family trees, and photographs. There is a gap in the records before the first census of the area in 1851. After that time, however, the family's presence in the area is well documented.

Physical condition

The documents in this fonds are in a relatively good condition.

Immediate source of acquisition

The material in this fonds was donated to Peninsula Heritage Inc.
