Administrative history

In York County, New Brunswick, an organizational meeting for the proposed District Convention was held on October 26, 1927, at the central room of the Parliament Buildings. Six county branches were represented, i.e. Devon, Fredericton, Barker's Point, New Maryland, Lower Kingsclear and Durham. The officers elected in that first meeting were Mrs. Frank Shortill, President and Mrs. H.W. Estabrooks, Secretary.

In 1935, this District was comprised of 18 branches: Barker's Point, Burton, Devon, Fredericton, New Maryland, Lakeville Corner, Millville, Currieburg, Burtt's Corner, Lower Kingsclear, Stanley, Williamsburg, Maugerville, Otis, Keswick Ridge, Sheffield, Nashwaak Bridge and Lincoln.

In 1951 the Loyalist District Women's Institute was divided into Districts No.1 and No.2. Institutes on Fredericton side of the St. John River in York County, and five Institutes below the bridge over the Nashwaak River, make up Loyalist District No.1. Loyalist District No.2 consists of the remainder on the Devon side of the St. John River and four branches in Northumberland County.
