  • Fonds
  • 1836-1839

This fonds consists of financial records for Albion Steam Works, dating from 1836 to 1839. They offer a window into the social life and economy of early 19th century Fredericton and area, recording the names of customers (residents) and occasionally their occupations (i.e., merchant, contractor, mason, innkeeper, miller, blacksmith, servant) and places of residence (i.e., Fredericton, Saint John, Woodstock, Stanley, Boiestown, St. Marys, Douglas, Nashwaak, Royal Road, Campbell), along with the foodstuffs, services, building supplies, and household goods they purchased. A number of customers were employees of Albion Steam Works.

There are 4 ledgers, one dating from 1836 to 1839, the second, from 1836-1839, the third, from 1837 to 1838, and the fourth from 1838 to 1839. There is also a day book, dating from 1837 to 1838. The 1836-1839 ledger (MS1A) contains both customer accounts and day book entries. Included among the customer accounts are a number pertaining to individuals and companies who were living in or working to establish the newly-created village of Stanley, most notably Commissioners E. N. Kendall and Richard Hayne and the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Land Company. The 1836-1839 ledger (MS1B) appears to be a continuation of first (MS1A) and likewise contains the names of customers, sometimes their places of residence and occupations, services performed, items purchased, amounts charged, and sums paid (cash, kind, and labour).

The 1837-1838 ledger includes both cash book entries and individual accounts, and the 1838-1839 ledger contains individual accounts. The cash book entries record monies and goods received and expended; the day book entries identify the items purchased and names of customers; and the account book entries record the names of customers, the items purchased, the amounts charged, and the payments received, either in cash, kind, or labour.

Story of Joseph Stan Arsenault (Willie Hatkins) / by Joseph Stan Arsenault

  • CA PANB MC261
  • Fonds
  • Photocopied after 1953

The autobiographical story of Joseph Stanislaus Arsenault (a.k.a.) Willie Hatkins is told in a series of vignettes of life in rural New Brunswick and Gaspé that covers the years 1907 to 1934. The adoption of a unilingual English-speaking, probably Protestant, boy by a French-speaking Catholic family posed a unique set of psychological, theological and educational problems. His story also provides insights into the lumbering and farming industries, as well as, into the key role religion played in residents' lives.

There are also newspaper clippings from "Ma Gaspesie," published in Shawinigan Falls, Québec, 28 October 1953, entitled "Stan perdue, Willie retrouve". These clippings were originally pasted over the notebook containing the Willie Hatkins story (MS1). Also included is a biographical sketch of Edmond Plourde, a missionary colonizer, who was instrumental in settling aspiring farmers on the land around St. Elzéar.
