James Brown

  • CA UNB MG H 82
  • Fonds
  • 1840-1866

This fonds consists of correspondence to James Brown, mostly concerning his constituency, 1840 - 1866; petitions to Sir William Colebrook, the Lieutenant Governor, mainly from residents of Charlotte County, 1842 - 1866, and a few miscellaneous printed items.

Correspondence with Charlotte County residents is primarily concerned with constituency matters including grants of money to construct bridges, to establish a monthly agricultural periodical, for pensions for widows of Revolutionary soldiers, and for land. Petitions to Colebrook from Charlotte County residents deal with such issues as pensions for Revolutionary soldiers and remuneration for teaching school.
