Ice Out Past My House

  • Item
  • 1993

The Diary of Azor Hoyt, with entries from May 1811 until October 1867, with periods of years missing. Because Azor died in 1842 but entries continue until 1867, it is believed that other family members wrote in the diary too. The diary entries are small with large gaps of no entries in between, such as the following order: "June 3rd, 1811 Norton Church raised, August 22nd Brig ISABELLA launched, October 20th severe gale of wind." The diary depicts life in the 1800’s and indicates the important role that the church played in early Loyalists' lives. Church happenings, weddings, murders, and hangings are of significant note.
