  • Fonds
  • 1783 - 1893, predominant 1783 - 1835

This fonds consists mainly of correspondence exchanged between members of the Moore family in Fredericton and their relatives in New York State. The bulk of correspondence is addressed to either Maria (Moore) Carman or Eliza Moore. There are six letters from the 1830s addressed to Sarah Carman from her daughters-in-law in Bathurst, Musquash and St. Stephen. Also included in the fonds are legal documents such as deeds and estate and military papers.

The correspondence reflects the daily lives of upper class Loyalist women in New Brunswick. It also documents the ongoing connections with family in the United States and the movement back and forth for the generation growing up after the American Revolution. The women discuss their personal and social lives, as well as the lives of mutual friends and relatives. There is advice about the foolhardiness of a premature return to New York, interesting commentaries on the significance of correct spelling and grammar (written by an aunt to a schoolgirl), reports on sea travels, discussion of marital difficulties, expressions of anxiety over the possibility of renewed war between England and the United States and description of life in Bathurst, New Brunswick in 1830.

Documents have been separated into correspondence and legal papers. Each in turn has been arranged chronologically.
