Davidson family

  • CA MNBM ID792
  • Fonds
  • 1765-1955

This fonds consists of material from the practice of three generations of Newcastle (Northumberland County) lawyers, chiefly Allan A. Davidson, Jr. The legal documents reflect solicitor's work rather than civil litigation or criminal presentation. It includes material about expropriation by the Intercolonial Railway / Canadian National Railway and the forestry activities of Fraser Company. There are family documents, financial records and land records from 1795 to 1950. An account book belonging to Henry Gerrish, 1837-1840, is included as are the letterbooks of John Ambrose Street, Street & Kerr and Street & Davidson. There is also a journal of John Ambrose Street's voyage to England, 1817-1819.

William Wilkinson

  • CA PANB MC242
  • Fonds
  • 1828-1895

This fonds documents the personal and professional activities of William Wilkinson. It includes incoming and outgoing correspondence; insurance policies; and receipts, bills, invoices, agreements, bonds, and affidavits relating to legal cases he handled as either a lawyer or a judge.

Also included are case files dating to the years he practised law as well as legal documents pertaining to cases heard in the Supreme Court of New Brunswick or in the County Courts of Gloucester, Kent, Northumberland, Restigouche, Westmorland, or York.

A few letters and legal documents pre-date Wilkinson's birth. They probably resulted from the activities of his business associates, Archibald Murchie or John M. Johnson.
