Hanson Family fonds

  • CA CCA MC634
  • Fonds
  • 1777

The Hanson family traces their roots to Roger de Rastric of Halifax, Yorkshire, England. A few of his descendants emigrated and settled in New England. John Hanson one of those descendants with his friend Ephraim Young sailed in a Whale Boat, in 1777 and landed on Campobello Island. They then sailed to Chamcook Island (now known as Ministers Island) which at that time was unclaimed. John Hanson obtained a location ticket from the Government of Nova Scotia and during six years of residence cleared up to Thirty acres of land. Their families joined them, and for two years lived under greatest distress having large families and no provisions. The subsisted on shell fish and game.

After the influx of loyalists in 1783, their cleared land looked very inviting to the new settlers. In 1784 New Brunswick broke away from Nova Scotia and the new government refused to honor old Location Tickets. So John and Ephrim petitioned the Government in March 1785 for grant to their land stating they have lived there for six years and had cleared land. However, Captain S. Osborne, a British sea captain who had some influence with the governor, also petitioned for the island and he was given the grant. The Hansons and the Youngs received some payment for the island from Osborne. Then Hanson secured a grant of lot No. 3 of the Farms of the Penobscot Association. His descendants still reside in Bocabec and other areas of Charlotte County.
