Dates of existence

Started sometime after 1860


Lone Water Farm in Westfield, Kings County, New Brunswick, was owned by Samuel George Eccles (b. 1859 or 1860). Eccles had immigrated from England in the 1860s with his father, David, and mother, Marey. David began farming at Westfield and by 1891 he was dead and his son Samuel was running the farm. In 1899 Samuel married Margaret Anne Cronk. The farm produced honey, eggs, vegetables, fruit and hay. During the 1890s, Eccles built and ran two scows as river trading vessels, which he used to carry his own produce as well as other locally produced goods including stone and gravel, wood and general merchandise. One of the scows was named the "Swallow".
