Hi Fay, I have been able to get to my allied family files and looked up Vaughn. I have an Emma Vaugh b. City of Saint John, NB ca. 1843 who married George T. Flewelling. What I have is:
GEORGE T. FLEWELLING
b. 1841 Saint John, NB
d. 16OCT1891, bur. Saint John
m. EMMA VAUGHN (b. ca. 1843 Saint John, NB, d. before 1919)
father: JAMES LLEWELLYN FLEWELLING
mother: MARY ELIZA TRAVIS
WILLIAM V. FLEWELLING b. ca. 1865
ERNEST T. FLEWELLING b. ca. 1867
CHARLES C. FLEWELLING b. ca. 1873
MARYENA FLEWELLING b. ca. 1876, d. 27APR1877 age 1y2m
SHIRLEY B FLEWELLING b. ca. 1878 (male called Arthur S. Flewelling in 1881 census)
The sources are partially Allan H, Wetmore's, "Flewelling Genealogy", and the 1881 census of Wellington Ward, City of Saint John, Saint John County, New Brunswick. Also the, Saint John "Daily News", 28APR1877. In 1881 George was age 40, Church of England, and a lumber surveyor. William V. Flewelling was a painter in 1881, and Ernest T. Flewelling was a Store Clerk. A note adds that George was a surveyor in Eastport, Maine in 1919. I am not sure where that comes from. Possibly a reference to Emma's death certificate?

HANNA FLEWELLING b. 1853
James was living in Portland (now part of the City of Saint John) in 1835. In 1881 census, he was in Lancaster (also now part of the City) and was working for Her Majesty's Customs, Church of England, age 69 and was in Kings Ward, City of Saint John, County of Saint John, New Brunswick. I have a note that he later owned a mill, presumably a saw mill. Some records come from burial records in Saint John. and Marriage Records for Saint John County.
ISAAC G. FLEWELLING
m. HANNAH REYNOLDS
JAMES LLEWELLYN FLEWELLING 1812-1884
JEREMIAH FLEWELLING d. 1903
I ahve a note that only James L. Flewelling ever married. Probably from Allan H. Wetmore, so it may not be correct. Isaac was a member of the jury which convicted Patrick Burgen (18 years old) of stealing; for which he was hanged in Saint John. If I remember rightly, when the jury heard the sentence, they tried to cahnge their verdict but were unsuccessful. In the 1850 census, Isaac was in Portland; but I have note that he later farmed in Lancaster. Of course, in some places in New Brunswick them, you didn't have to move, a change in boundaries could put you in another parish, or even county.
The question of Isaac's parentage is tricky. I could more easily say who wasn't his father, than who was. There are two basic possibilities: Joseph and Phoebe (Worden) Flewelling of Saint John; and John and Deborah (Denton) Flewelling of Westfield Parish, Kings Co., NB. (Kings Co. is just north of the City of Saint John, and up the River Saint John.) Now, Joseph did have a son, Isaac who died ca. 1858 in Lancaster Parish, County of Saint John, NB. It appears that this Isaac's children were:
ANN FLEWELLING b. ca. 1825, d. 19DEC189?
JOHN FLEWELLING b. ca. 1829
CAROLINE FLEWELLING b. ca. 1827
HARRIET FLEWELLING b. ca. 1836
AMELIA FLEWELLING b. ca. 1839
who were in Lancaster Parish in 1881, all Church of England, all unmarried, and John was a farmer. This would seems to be a different Isaac. I suppose it is possible that Isaac G. Flewelling was a son of Isaac, son of Joseph, but I believe that Isaac, son of Joseph, was born after 1783, and may have been too young.
There is another Isaac Flewelling in Portland (City of Saint John) in 1881, and he was born ca. 1819. His wife was Charlotte (b. ca. 1821), and their children were:
ALBERT FLEWELLING b. ca. 1856 (a raftsman)
(TOM or TIM) FLEWELLING b. ca. 1861
CHARLOTTE FLEWELLING b. ca. 1854
ISOBELL FLEWELLING b. ca. 1864
I have no idea where he comes from.
John and Deborah (Denton) Flewelling had several children, but no Isaac. Amongst these children were several sons: Morris Flewelling, John Flewelling b. ca. 1775, Thomas Flewelling b. ca. 1771, Abel Flewelling and Elijah Flewelling. Except for Thomas, these sons seem to drift away and disappear. I suspect that some of the Flewellings (such as that unknown Isaac) are descended from these sons. There are vague traces of them making their way south to Charlotte Co., Grand Manan Island and Calais, Maine; but nothing that permits identifying specific families.
So, Isaac G. Flewelling may be a grandson of John and Deborah (Denton) Flewelling; but that's a theory based on a process of elimination rather than any real evidence. I suspect that the only way to resolve some of these problems is to conduct a very thorough search of records in Saint John County and in Charlotte County I have managed to do some, and I believe the above summarizes the results, but there are other possibilities including the 1851, 1861, 1871 and 1891 census records; probate records; City directories or lists, cemetery records or headstone inscriptions, land records, etc. At present I do not have access to these, or the available time to search them. While I can't give you any definite answers, I hope the above helps. I am convinced that all Flewelling in the 18th and 19th century in New Brunswick were related, so they are members of the larger family somehow.
All the best,
Thomas A. Murray
