Biographical history

Enoch Lunt, (1799-1873) was born in Upper Gagetown, Queens County, New Brunswick. He married Mary Hoben (1803 or 1804-1880), daughter of Reuben Hoben (1769-1850) and Sara Ebbet. His early employment as a lumber merchant lead him to an interest in steamships. In 1840 he bought shares in the "New Brunswick". He bought the "Lawrence" in 1857 then built the "Olive", "Heather Bell", "Rothesay" and the "City of Saint John". His steamship business expanded to the Saint Lawrence River. He was elected member of the Legislative Assembly for Queens County in 1854 and sat until his defeat in 1861, when he resigned from politics and moved to Saint John, where he died in 1873.

Enoch Lunt's business was taken over by his sons, one of whom was probably the Enoch Lunt who was married to Augusta Wheeler and living at Bright, in York County in 1889. Joseph H. Lunt, who died in 1899, the husband of Isabella Allingham, may also have been a son or brother of the first Enoch Lunt. George Beacall, whose funeral the family attended, may also have been a relative.
