are transcribed several baptisms including:
Peters Thomas W. Robert 1830 Wickham Peters Thomas and Hannah Born 12 May 1828
Peters Thomas William 3 Jun 1804 Hempstead Peters William and Charlotte By Rev. Richard Clarke
Peters Thomas William Robert 1828 Hampstead Peters Thomas and Hannah By Rev. Samuel Clarke
The second of these identifies Thomas William Peters as the s/o William and Charlotte (Haines) Peters. I will paste in the notes I have on her and her father below.
John was, I believe, a s/o:
James Haines b. Rye, Westchester Co., NY, d. Rye, Westchester Co., NY SEP1780, m. Mary Gedney (b. 19OCT1742, d. 14APR1828), d/o Bartholomew and Margaret Gedney.
James was a s/o Godfrey Haines (Godfret Hans) of whom much has been written, some of probably true.
65. JOHN HAINES
John Haines b. Rye, Westchester Co., NY ca. 1746, d. 1780, m. _____ Pugsley, d/o Gilbert Pugsley; m. 2nd ca. 1776 Sarah Haight.
Gilbert Pugsley, discussed below, was a s/o John Pugsley of Pelham Manor. Presumably John was the s/o or grandson of James Pugsley said to have come to North America in 1680.
Gilbert Pugsley had a namesake, Gilbert T. Pugsley, who had a son, Cornelius Amory Pugsley b. 1850, a New York banker. Cornelius was, in 1906, President-General of the Sons of the American Revolution; so presumably was descended from the Patriot side of things. He also instituted a prize, the Pugsley Medal, won in 1950 by William Nathan Gallup Haynes; whose name suggests a connection to the Loyalist side of things. Would Cornelius have been pleased?
In either, "The New-York Gazette", or in the, "Weekly Mercury", dated 25MAR1771, was the notice:
"To be sold at publick vendue, on the premises, on Tuesday the 16th day of April next, or at private sale any time before;
THE Farm of the late John Pugsly, deceased, containing about 240 acres of good upland and salt meadow, 60 or 70 acres is good timber-land, 220 acres is an island known by the name of Appleby's-Island, and joined to the Manor of Pelham, by a causeway, on which Manor is the other 20 acres; There is on the farm, two good dwelling-houses, two barns, a mill-house, and other out-houses, three very fine gardens and an orchard, containing about 200 fruit trees, with a good well and excellent springs, and streams of water ; the whole lies on the Sound, about 21 miles from New-York, where is good fishing, fowling, and claming, and would be very suitable for a Gentleman or Farmer. A good title will be given by
JAMES PUGSLY, }
WILLIAM PUGSLY, }
GILBERT PUGSLY, }
DAVID PUGSLY, }
Source: The New-York Gazette; and the, Weekly Mercury, Mar. 25, 1771, p. 3. (The same advertisement appeared in the same newspaper on April 8, 1771).
It is reasonable to assume that John Haines' wife was a daughter of John Pugsley, and sister to the advertisers. This conclusion is by no means certain, William Pugsley, s/o John, also had a son, Gilbert Pugsley. Amongst William's daughters were: Mary, Elizabeth, Sarah and Phoebe. William Pugsley moved to Dutchess Co.; however, Gilbert Pugsley, below, stated he was a native of Westchester Co., and lived in Philipsburg; which I believe is in Westchester Co. In fact it is noted that at the time members of the Pugsley, Haines, Haight, Gedney and many others of these inter-related families lived on Philipse Manor. (Reference to, ". . . a typed manuscript entitled The English Families of Philipse Manor in Westchester County, New York by Grenville C. Mackenzie, 1942"; one copy with the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, and one with the Westchester County Historical Society).
Henry Titus of Huntington, Suffolk Co., Long Island, NY, made his will 23NOV1725. In it he refers to his 'brother' John Pugsley; leaving to John his farm in Westchester Co. Interestingly, Henry Titus was the s/o Abel Titus and my very distant great aunt, Mary (Rebecca?) Scudder; just to give some idea of how complex these relationships are. Assuming that 'brother' means 'brother-in-law'; it is not clear if Henry Titus m. a sister of John Pugsley, but I suspect it was John who m. Henry's sister.
Two of John Pugsley's daughters are given as: Sarah Pugsley m. John Oakley and Phoebe.
In the 1790 census of Harrison, Westchester Co., NY, there were:
Haines Ann 0 1 2 0 0
Haines David 1 1 1 0 0
Haines John 1 2 2 0 0
Haines Mary 0 1 2 0 0
Haines Matthew 4 1 4 01
Haines Samuel 2 2 3 0 0
David is likely David Haines , b. ca. 26SEP1769, d. 29SEP1831 age 62 years, 3 months and 3 days, buried Miller Cemetery, Mamaroneck, Westchester Co., NY. Buried in the same cemetery is Lyon Miller (b. ca. 11JUL1736, d. 15MAR1814 age 77 years, 8 months and 4 days); with his wife, Susannah (b. ca. OCT1759, d. 11JUN1802 age 59 years and 8 months). John could be David's brother, ; and either Ann or Mary could be his widowed mother. It is possible that David Haines went to New Brunswick as a Loyalist in 1783, and soon returned to Westchester Co. as there are records of land grants to a David Haines that cannot be otherwise accounted for. There was also a Matthew Haines who went to New Brunswick, in 1783 aboard the transport, 'Mercury', in Loyalist company 47. He had a wife, 2 children over the age of 10 years, and 4 children under 10. With them was Jonathan Haines, single, probably a son. By MAY1784, Matthew's wife appears to have died, and he only had Jonathan and 3 children over 10, and 1 under 10. Possibly Matthew was the s/o Matthew Haines . This, however, seems very unlikely. If Matthew had a son, Jonathan, about 16 years of age in 1783 (i.e., b. ca. 1767), we can suspect that Matthew was b. ca. 1742, give or take 5 years. Matthew Haines, Jr. was b. ca. 1747, d. Bedford, Westchester Co., NY 31JUL1821. The Matthew in the 1790 could be Matthew Haines , Matthew, Jr.; or, possibly, a third Matthew, brother of David.
651. CHARLOTTE HAINES b. ca. 1773-6, d. Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB 5FEB1851 age 75 (or 78) years, buried St. John's Anglican Church (Loyalist) Cemetery, Gagetown, Queens Co., NB, m. Gagetown, Queens Co., NB 1JUN1791 WILLIAM PETERS (b. ca. 1772, bpt. Queens Co., NB (as adult) 20JAN1793, d. Woodstock, Carleton Co., NB 4JAN1836), s/o Thomas and Susannah (Palmer) Peters.
It is thought that Charlotte was the d/o John and Sarah (Haight) Hains. While naming a son, John Haynes Peters, suggests her father was a John Haines, Judy Chase's compilation makes the father the John Haines who m. ____ Pugsley. Since Charlotte was clearly connected with Gilbert Pugsley (as was her assumed brother, David Haines), the suggestion is that Judy may be correct. See the discussion of Gilbert Pugsley at David Haines .
The assumption that Charlotte Haines and David Haines were siblings may be incorrect. There is a work, presumably fiction, based on Charlotte, called, "Charlotte", (by Janet Lunn, Tundra/McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, APR1998). The actual slipper is at the New Brunswick Museum, Saint John NB. A review of the book (Anne Baker, "The New Brunswick Reader", 16MAY1998; probably in, "The Telegraph Journal", Saint John, NB), tells us something about the fictional Charlotte; which may also be a reflection of reality. The work tells us that Charlotte, b. ca. 1773, was the daughter of John Haines, of Patriot persuasion; and that John had a brother, David Haines, of Loyalist sympathies. Against her father's wishes, she visited her Loyalist cousins and was forbidden to return to her family. Thus, she is forced to accompany David's family in the Spring Fleet of 1783. One of the first to climb ashore at Saint John, she lost her slipper in the mud, but retained the other. As far as I can tell, my premise that David Haines was her brother is still more likely; but it is interesting that he has been otherwise noted, and a relationship assumed.
Lunn's book is likely based on an entry in Charlotte Gourlay Robinson's, "Pioneer Profiles", (Mika Publishing Co., Belleville, Ontario, 1980); on Charlotte Haines (pp. 143-152). This gives Charlotte as b. New York City 1773, d/o John Haines, and granddaughter of an Amsterdam merchant who emigrated to New York. Again, David Haines is referred to as her uncle, and it is suggested he had a son, Harry Haines, who had a son, James Haines, who lived to be 104 years of age. Also, the suggestion that John Haines was the s/o a Dutch merchant suggests that Charlotte and her family were not connected with the Haines family discussed here. Robinson's work appears to be based on accounts related by Charlotte, herself, in later years; but also to contain a fair amount of supposition. Part of these recollections probably came from, "A Peter's Lineage: Dr. Charles Peters, of Hampstead, Long Island", by Martha B. Flint. The title, as given, notes a common error as Hempstead, Long Island, NY was spelled with an 'e'. Hampstead Parish, Queens Co., NB was, indeed, named after Hempstead; with the spelling 'corrected'. Those familiar with the latter tend to refer to the former with the incorrect spelling. Martha Bockée Flint, however, would have known better.
Another of Robinson's sources was a family history of Mrs. Wade H. McBride, who owned Charlotte's slipper before it was present to the New Brunswick Museum. Without being able to examine these works, it is difficult to substantiate their reliability. Again, it is clear that Charlotte and David Haines were associated with Gilbert Pugsley; that Gilbert was from Westchester Co., NY; therefore Charlotte and David were likely of the Westchester Co. family. This tends to belie the Netherlands association suggested above.
Charlotte was grant a share (with 38 others) of 84 lots on Long Island in Queens Co., NB on the River Saint John 19JUL1786. Other grantees included Gilbert Pugsley, Belyea's, Gerow's, Golding's, a Hewlett, Caleb Merritt, Ogden's, Daniel Parent, Thomas Peters, Secord's, Leonard Slipp, VanWart's and others. All of these, if not already related, would soon be. Most, if not all, can be traced to Westchester Co., NY; and some were connected on Long Island, NY in the 1600's. Charlotte had petitioned for land in Kings Co., NB with Gilbert Pugsley in 1785. It was unusual for women (especially aged 7-13 years), except widows with families to provide for, to make such an early petition. One might speculate that Charlotte was trying to get some land for her own maintenance; was the daughter of a Loyalist with a right to a claim for land; or that Gilbert was using her to acquire as much land as possible. Another alternative was that the Charlotte making the petition was an adult, Gilbert Pugsley's sister and widow of John Haines; but there is no real indication that this was the case.
Fran E. Rose points out that Gilbert Pugsley is Charlotte's maternal grandfather; which seems very likely. Fran, in, "More About Charlotte Hain[e]s, subject of book, 'Charlotte', by Janet Lunn", in, "Loyalist Trails" 2007-47: December 2, 2007, an on-line newsletter of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada, especially at:
quotes Lunn as:
"Yes, there was indeed a Charlotte Hain[e]s, and she did go to New Brunswick with Loyalist relatives as a 10 year old. However those relatives were not her uncle and aunt, but her grandfather, Gilbert Pugsley and his second wife. This family were on the ship Jason, along with one servant. Charlotte's older brother David, born around 1771, also went to New Brunswick. Although he would have been only about 12 or 13 at the time, he appears to be listed as a single male passenger aboard the same ship, Jason. My source regarding the ship is an appendix in the book Early Loyalist Saint John: the origins of New Brunswick Politics 1783-1786 by D. G. Bell. The appendix is a list of Loyalists arriving in Saint John, New Brunswick in 1783 and is based on original victualling and shipping lists.
"Charlotte's probable father, John Haines was, I am told by another descendant, a Loyalist who was probably killed in 1780 while fighting in one of the Loyalist regiments. His first wife was a Miss Pugsley, and she would have been David and Charlotte's mother. She must have died between 1773 and 1776, as John Haines second marriage to Sarah Haight took place around 1776. Brother David later returned to the United States, as did the Pugsleys. Charlotte married William Peters in 1791 and gave birth to 15 children. Her descendants are many and include her grandson, Sir Leonard Tilley, a father of Confederation.
"My major sources are found in two places. The first is a web site by a distant cousin, Kathleen Peters, titled "Peters Family Histories in Canada and the U.S. (1600's to the Present)". The second is the book Arrivals 99, Our First Families in New Brunswick, compiled by members of the Saint John Branch of New Brunswick Genealogical Society. I have also verified some information in photocopies of Pugsley and Haines family trees which I obtained from the Westchester County Archives in New York State and have used family trees found on the web site of the New Brunswick Genealogical Society.
"A chapter on Charlotte Haines in another book, titled Pioneer Profiles of New Brunswick Settlers by Charlotte Gourlay Robinson, published in 1980 was perhaps one of Janet Lunn's sources for her story; at least the two books have much common detail. Charlotte Haines' husband William Peters was the son of Thomas Peters, whom many genealogists, including my own father, have incorrectly confused with Thomas Horsfield Peters. Thomas Horsfield Peters was the son of James Peters, while "my" Thomas Peters was the son of Samuel Peters. Ms. Robinson repeats that mistake and describes in nearly two pages the privileged life that a grandson of the very wealthy James Peters would have lived. So far, although the two Peters families often lived in the same communities both before the American Revolution and after, there is as yet no proof that they are related. A family history which I have not seen is cited as another source by Charlotte Robinson."
which essentially agrees with my suppositions; except that I missed the possibility that Gilbert Pugsley was Charlotte Haines' grandfather.
Charlotte 'relict of the late Wm Peters, Esq.' was b. ca. 1773-6, d. 1851 age 75 (or 78) years, and is buried St. John's Anglican Church, Cemetery, Queens Co., NB. Her headstone is pictured at:
discovered in SEP1982, and photographed by Kathleen A. Peters. Kathleen transcribes the stone as:

NB ca. 1803-6, d. Carleton Co., NB MAY1881; m. 1st Maria Nevers, sister of Alexander Nevers).
It is speculated that James W. Boone's middle name was Whitman or Wightman. This would indicate he was a member of the Boone family otherwise closely connected to the Haines. This further suggest that Charlotte Haines, Millicent's mother, was a relative.
They were in Carleton Co., NB in the 1851 census. James Boone was in Brighton Parish in 1871 and 1881.

651J. ELIZABETH (ELIZA) ABIGAIL PETERS (6th daughter) b. 11JUL1809, bpt. 18FEB1810, d. Kings Co., NB 10JUN1871 age 63 (62) years, buried Trinity Anglican Church Cemetery, Kingston, Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB, m. Christ Church, Fredericton, York Co., NB by the Venerable Archdeacon Coster 3AUG1830 Capt. JAMES EDWIN PETERS (b. ca. 1793, d. Belleisle Bay, Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB 11AUG1875 age 82 years, bur, Trinity Anglican Church Cemetery, Kingston, Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB), s/o William and Amy (Sutton) Peters.
James was her 1st cousin, once removed, on her father's side. When they married, both were of Belleisle Bay, Kings Co., NB.
In Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB in 1851 their family was:
Peters James M Head 58 British American Farmer prop.
Peters Eliza A. F Wife 42 British American
Peters Charlotte A. F Daughter 19 British American
Peters Loiusa M. F Daughter 17 British American
Peters Amelia A. P. F Daughter 14 British American
Peters Ann E. H. F Daughter 12 British American
Peters William S. M Son 11 British American
Peters James E. M Son 9 British American
Peters Samuel I. F Son 5 British American
Peters Augusta F I. F Daughter 2 British American
Powell Phebe F Wid 79 British American May 1783 Loyalist
All, except Phoebe Powell (widow of Jacob Powell of Richibucto) were b. NB. Phoebe Powell's maiden name may have been Peter's, but was more likely Carle.
In Kingston Parish in 1871 James was age 78, Eliza was age 62 and children were Edward (29), Anna (32) and Augusta (22).
Near them, in the Trinity Anglican Church Cemetery, Kingston, Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB, is a four-sided monument to their daughters, Augusta F. I. Peters and Annie E. Peters. With them are buried their daughter, Amelia A. P. Wiggins, and her 1st husband, William T. Raymond.
651J1. CHARLOTTE AMY PETERS (eldest daughter) b. ca. 1832, d. Kings Co., NB OCT1892 age 61 years, buried Springfield Anglican Church Cemetery, Springfield Parish, Kings Co., NB, m. at her father's home, Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB by the Rev. W. E. Scovil 6NOV1851 JOHN HENRY MARVIN (MARVEN) (b. 21MAY1825 (ca. 1825-6, MAY1825 on headstone), d. 2JUN1901, buried Springfield Anglican Church Cemetery, Springfield Parish, Kings Co., NB), s/o Josiah and Rebecca (Fowler) Marven.
I assume J. Henry Marvin to be the Henry Marvin age 25 years, son of the widower, Josiah Marvin (63; ca. 1788-APR1877) of Springfield Parish, Kings Co., NB in 1851. Rebecca (ca. 1793-13JUN1834) are buried Springfield Anglican Church Cemetery, Springfield Parish, Kings Co., NB.
Henry and Amy are indicated as not having children, but his will indicates that they had an adopted daughter, Charlotte E. Gould, of New York.
In 1881, Henry (55) and 'Amey' (49) 'Marvin' were in Springfield Parish, Kings Co., NB. In 1891, in Springfield Parish, they are John H. Senr. (64) and C. Amy (58) 'Marvin'. The 'Senr.' was to distinguish Henry from John H. Marvin Jun. (29), s/o Charles and Emmeline M. Marvin, living nearby, probably a nephew as well as a namesake. In fact, in 1901, in Springfield Parish, Henry J. Marvin (21MAY1825) lived with Charles Marvin and family (including John H. Marvin) and is given as Charles' brother. Henry was a widower by this time.
Although consistently given as 'Marvin', I believe that 'Marven' is the preferred spelling. Even so, even in records (i.e., John Henry Marvin (the younger) in a birth record of his child), the name is usually 'Marvin'. John H., Jr., on the other hand, in his death record is 'Marven', but on his headstone is 'Marvin'. Charlotte, on her headstone, is apparently 'Camy Marvin', wife of J. Henry. Probably that should be C. Amy Marvin.
651J2. LOUISA MARIA (M. LOUISA) PETERS b. ca. 1833-4, d. Otnabog, Queens Co., NB 11DEC1885 age 52 (53) years, buried Upper Hampstead Baptist Cemetery, Hampstead Parish, Queens Co., NB, m. Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB by the Rev. W. E. Scovil 24OCT1866 SAMUEL LEONARD PETERS (b. Queens Co., NB 3FEB1837, d. Hampstead Parish, Queens Co., NB 1JUN1920, buried Upper Hampstead Baptist Cemetery, Hampstead Parish, Queens Co., NB; m. 2nd Kingston, Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB by the Rev. H. S. Wainwright 27FEB1889 Julia Evelyn Flewelling (b. 6DEC1859 (ca. 1859), d. Hampstead Parish, Queens Co., NB 2JUL1933, buried Upper Hampstead Baptist Cemetery, Hampstead Parish, Queens Co., NB), d/o John Benley and Elmira Jane (Wetmore) Flewelling), s/o Samuel Leonard and Phoebe (Tilley) Peters.
It is said that Samuel Leonard Peters  was named after a schoolmaster, Samuel Leonard. Just as Samuel's nephew, Sir Samuel Leonard Tilley was a namesake, Louisa's husband appears to have been another. In fact, this appears to be Samuel Leonard Peters, s/o Samuel Leonard and Phoebe (Tilley) Peters, Louisa's cousin.
Where Louisa is my cousin on my father's side, Samuel's 2nd wife, Julia Flewelling, is my cousin on my mother's side.
Although sometimes (as on her headstone) given as M. Louisa or Maria Louisa, in 1851 she was Louisa M. and in her death announcement she was also Louisa M.
651J3. AMELIA ABIGAIL POWELL PETERS b. ca. 1836-7, d. Florenceville, Simonds Parish, Carleton Co., NB 15AUG1897 age 61 years, buried Trinity Anglican Church Cemetery, Kingston, Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB, m. 1st Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB by the Rev. W. E. Scovil 24OCT1866 WILLIAM TYNG RAYMOND (b. 23JAN1829, d. 25FEB1878 age 49 years, buried Trinity Anglican Church Cemetery, Kingston, Kingston Parish, Kings Co., NB), s/o George and Eleanor (Mills) Raymond; m. 2nd CHARLES ARNOLD WIGGINS (b. Grand Lake, Queens Co., NB 23NOV1831 (24NOV1831 in 1901, 23NOV1831 on headstone), d. Florenceville, Simonds Parish, Carleton Co., NB 7JAN1910 (2JAN1910 on headstone) age 78 years, buried Florenceville-Behind Catholic Church Cemetery, Florenceville, Simonds Parish, Carleton Co., NB; m. 1st 1OCT1866 Esther Corey Wiggins; m. 3rd Kings Co., NB 25MAY1898 Catherine Elder/Appleby), s/o John and Mary (Ralston) Wiggins.
The newspaper announcing Amelia's marriage was dated 16NOV1866, but was the same paper that announced (in the same place by the same person) the marriage of her sister, Louisa Maria. Since Louisa's marriage is given as dated 24OCT1866, I assume it was a double wedding.
The surname, Wiggins is not unfamiliar and is associated with several of these families as early as 1783, perhaps even before. There was also the Rev. Gilbert Lester Wiggins active in the area, in 1851 in Maugerville, but whose name pops up frequently in diverse locations. He had a son, Charles G. Wiggins (ca. 1837), studying in 'Wndsor College' in the 1851 census, likely to enter Holy Orders himself. Apparently he did as the Rev. Gilbert Charles Wiggins, b. ca. 1832, d. Hyeres, near Toulon in the South of France 19JAN1859 age 27 years. He had been rector in Greenwich Parish, Kings Co., NB, and was the s/o the Rev. Dr. Wiggins of Maugerville. Therefore, he was not the Charles Wiggins who was Amelia's 2nd husband.
A Charles A. Wiggins was he who m. Canning Church (Canning Parish?), Queens Co., NB by the Rev. Abraham Wood AUG1833 Mary Emily Tilton, 2nd d/o William Tilton of Musquash. If he lived in Canning Parish, he would not appear in the 1851 census as the census of that parish is 'lost'. Mary Emily d. Bloomfield, Upper Canada 5MAR1843 age 40 years. This may (or may not) have been the Chas. A. Wiggins who returned to NB from Leadville, Colorado (after two years) 12JAN1882. Leadville is often mentioned and seems to have been one of those gold rushes which so often attracted New Brunswickers. Perhaps this latter Charles was Charles Arnold Wiggins b. Grand Lake, Queens Co., NB 23NOV1831, s/o John and Mary (Ralston) Wiggins, who m. 1OCT1866 Esther Corey Wiggins. Emily Tilton's husband, also Charles Arnold Wiggins, was b. 26NOV1813, the s/o Jacob and Elizabeth Ruth (Slocum) Wiggins. One suspects the two were uncle and nephew. Certainly they are given as such, and the Rev. A. V. G. Wiggins is given as the elder Charles' brother, Abraham Van Guilder Wiggins.
In 1880, Charles Wiggins (b. NB ca. 1830), is a miner in Iron Hill, Lake Co., Colorado. He is amongst many other miners (probably in tents), is indicated as married, but has no wife with him. Esther likely remained in NB, and it may be her death (31AUG1880 age 48 years, buried Florenceville-Behind Catholic Church Cemetery, Florenceville, Simonds Parish, Carleton Co., NB) that motivated his return. There is no indication that this was Amelia's 2nd husband, however, in Simonds Parish, Carleton Co., NB (possibly near her brother, William Samuel Peters) was Charles Wiggins (59) with a wife, Amelia (55) and a daughter, 'Margina' (24). In compilations, Charles Arnold Wiggins, Jr. is given a daughter, Margery S. Wiggins (amongst other children), but no birth-date is mentioned. Some of these children are in Simonds Parish, in 1881, with their father, Charles Wiggins (49) a carpenter and a widower. These children include 'Margary' (15). They lived next to another of my cousin, the Rev. (later Venerable Archdeacon) Joseph Edward Flewelling and family. While I suspect this was the Charles Wiggins who went seeking his fortune in Colorado (but cannot be sure), her certainly seems to be the younger Charles Arnold Wiggins, and Amelia's 2nd husband.
According to the 1871 directory, Charles was a farmer in Youngs Cove, Waterborough Parish, Queens Co., NB. While there is a Wiggins family there in the 1871 census, I cannot find Charles. Nor can I find him in the 1871 census of Simonds Parish in Carleton Co.
In Simonds Parish in 1901, C. A. Wiggins was b. 24NOV1831. He seems to have a wife, Mrs. Catherine Wiggins (1839); probably a 3rd wife. By 1911, Catherine (MAR1840) is a widow. A marriage record gives her as a widow, Catherine Appleby/Elder; possibly related to Amelia's sister-in-law, Caroline E. (Appleby) Peters. A Charles A. Wiggins also m. Carleton Co., NB 13APR1895 Mabel F. Leith.

Caroline Appleby, age 3, was with her parents in Simonds Parish, Carleton Co., NB in 1851. 'Carey E.' (22) was there in 1871 as well. In 1863, her father, Charles, is given as C. S. Appleby of Florenceville. There was another Caroline Appleby, d/o John Appleby, but she m. 1871 in Woodstock John Boyd. When married Carrie's father is Chas. S. Appleby, Esq. of Florenceville, and William was Wm. Peters, Esq. of Grand Falls. The 'Esq.' originally (early 1800's) indicated a barrister of justice-of-the-peace or other law professional, but in this case may have been simply a formality. In the 1871 directory, Charles S. Appleby was a farmer. William Peters of Colebrooke, Grand Falls, Victoria Co., NB was also a farmer.
Charles S. Appleby(ca. 1805-1876) and his wife, Letitita Burpee (ca. 1807-1877), were from Sheffield Parish, Sunbury Co., NB and they were married their in 1829 by David 'Burpe', Esq. In that case, David Burpee was most likely a justice-of-the-peace. Charles and Letitia are indicated as having moved to Carleton Co. ca. 1831, amongst the earliest settlers in the Florenceville area.
By 1881, William Peters (40) was in Simonds Parish, Carleton Co., NB. probably in Florenceville. Carrie was age 34, and chlidren were James W. (7), William R. (1) and Allan W.

In Simonds Parish, in 1911, Carrie seems to have died, and William S. Peters (MAY1840) is a widower, living with his son, James W. Peters (DEC1874), James' wife, Velma M. (Jones) (JAN1881), and James and Velma's children: Doris V. (JAN1904), Harry G. (Harry Jones Peters 18MAR1905), Annie L. (MAR1906) and Helen F. (AUG1907).
