History

The Tweedie family immigrated to Canada in 1822 when Robert Tweedie (?-1863) and his wife Sarah Dowler (?-1870) left Leitrim County, Connacht, Ireland for Williamstown, New Brunswick. The couple had 10 children, 5 of whom were born in New Brunswick. Three of their sons, William, Robert, and James, all became Methodist ministers in the Maritime provinces.

William Tweedie (1820-1903) married Dorcas Dykeman Calkin (1832-1909) in 1856 and they had three children: Leora Rebecca Tweedie (1858-1951), William Morley Tweedie (1862-1951), and Nettie Eliza Hayward (Tweedie) Beer (1867-1948), all three of whom attended the Mount Allison institutions.

James Tweedie (1826-1898) married Rachel Susannah Smith (?-1912) in 1861 and they had four children: Sarah Jane May (1864-?), Clara Gardiner (1865-?), Reynolds Knowlton (1867-1915), and Thomas Mitchell (1872-1944).
