Biographical history

Little is known of John Falconer, except that he was an importer and merchant in Douglastown, Northumberland county, New Brunswick in 1865. Some of his business practices included allowing discounts for prompt payments, bartering, and having "ready money". It is possible Falconer was married to Janet Johnstone, and had at least two daughters. John Falconer likely also spent time in 1875 and 1879 on board the Brigantine L.W. Eaton and Schooner Wild Brier, where he kept a daily log book.

Custodial history

Information about the custody of these records prior to acquisition is incomplete.

Scope and content

This fonds contains a rough account book for John Falconer's mercantile business, dating from January 1865 to February 1865. The record book contains entries of business transactions and the dates of the transactions. Presumably, these entries were to be posted to another account book.
