Biographical history

James Hendricks (1777-1837) was the son of Loyalist, Conrad Hendricks and his wife Sarah. He was a hardware merchant with importing business in Saint John, New Brunswick. He married Lana Stillwell in 1807. When he died, he left his estate to his five children: Conrad (b.1810), Margaret Ann Lee (b.1812), James (b.1815), Sarah Eliza (b.1822) and Charles (b. 1825). He appointed Samuel Hallet, one of his business partners, to be his executor.
