Harrington Families of Early Nova Scotia and New Brunswick

While pursuing my own efforts to acquire more information about one New Brunswick group of HARRINGTONs, I've accumulated a lot of information about other Harrington lines. Below, I've put together what I've been able to find out about all the various groups. Perhaps the compilation will answer some questions, or open doors to other inquiries. If you know anything more about any of these families, I'd appreciate hearing from you. I'll continue to revise the page every couple years, or as sufficient new information comes to my attention.

Remember that these are just "bits and pieces"; I've only been studying one of the groups seriously, and everything else is recorded pretty much as found in references or provided to me by others. I have made little effort to verify accuracy. Use it for what it is: a "research aid."

I've arranged the Harrington names in families, which include from 2 or 3 individuals to several dozen. Some of the "families" undoubtedly go with other groups, but I haven't been able to find the connections, yet. At the bottom of the page, I include a number of records that I don't feel confident to include in any specific family .

Information added or amended since the last revision is shown in this color. Note also that some of the individual numbers will have changed. NOTE November 2018: I haven't worked on this page in a long time, and probably won't find time to update it, but there may still be something of interest to you.



These simple indices to first names of HARRINGTON people, and to other surnames noted on the page, may help you find what you're looking for a little quicker than just skimming. The reference numbers are to group, and number within the group. For example, Albert 7-B6 refers to Person #6 in Family B in Group 7. For a citation with a "U" [e.g., Alice 2U], look in the unclassified records at the end of the group [in this case, Group 2].

This is a one person "group", so far. The only thing I know about him is that he was at Falmouth, Hants Co., Nova Scotia, on 15 Nov 1760 [R. G. Huling. April1889. The Rhode Island emigration to Nova Scotia. Narragansett Historical Register]. He may be covered in John Duncanson's Hants County books; I haven't checked, yet.

This Jabez HARRINGTON may have been a descendant of Robert HARRINGTON of Watertown, Middlesex Co., MA, as follows:

1-Robert HARRINGTON m. Susanna GEORGE 1 Oct 1648

2-Joseph HARRINGTON b. 28 Dec 1659; m. Joanna MIXER 7 Nov 1688 Middlesex Co., MA.

3-Joseph HARRINGTON m. Lydia ______

4-Jabez HARRINGTON b. 21 Sep 1720; m. Abigail SMITH 25 Jan 1753.

[Reference: H. Bond. 1860. Genealogies of the families and descendants of the early settlers of Watertown, Massachusetts. Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society.]



Stephen HARRINGTON Jr. was a grantee at Cornwallis, Kings Co., N.S., in 1764 [A. W. H. Eaton. 1910. The History of Kings County, Nova Scotia. Salem, MA: Salem Press]. According to Eaton, he came to Cornwallis from North Kingston, Washington Co., RI, but he may actually have come from [or at least been born in] Connecticut. Eaton says he was descended from Robert HARRINGTON of Watertown, MA [see GROUP 1], but I haven't been able to make that connection, yet.

From Eaton's "History of Kings County", Kings County township books, cemetery records, and probate records, I've pieced together some of this family. [Joan Peters of Australia, who I "met" on the internet, also provided information on the descendants of Daniel HARRINGTON.]

1-Stephen HARRINGTON Jr. and Elizabeth [SHIPPEL?]

2-Stephen HARRINGTON 3rd. born ca. 1745, probably in CT or RI; m. Amy HARRIS [dau. of Lebbeus HARRIS Jr. and Alice RANSON] 28 May 1771; Amy was born 15 Feb 1750, and died at Cornwallis ca 1834.

32-Harriet Elizabeth HARRINGTON b. 26 Dec 1824; m. 24 May 1844 Perez Martin BRECHIN.

3-Elizabeth HARRINGTON m. Col. William Charles MOORE


Others who probably go with this group are: William HARRINGTON died 21 Apr 1858, age 66; and Mary Alice HARRINGTON died 11 Jan 1872, age 82. Both are buried at Hillarton Cemetery, Cornwallis.



Most of the information on this group was supplied by Janet Heck (Baton Rouge, LA). She also has an ancestral line for this group. Harris Harrington was added to the group based on information in Crowell's "History of Barrington Township."

1-Ebenezer HARRINGTON, son of Job HARRINGTON, b. 1726 Massachusetts; m. Rebecca SPENCER 1743; came to Liverpool, Nova Scotia, before the American Revolutionary War.

2-Ebenezer HARRINGTON Jr., b. 1752 or 1756 probably in Massachusetts; m. Sarah SMITH 3 Aug 1778; d. 1812 or 1818. Lived in Liverpool, N. S. A privateer of this name was operating out of Nova Scotia 1797-1800. Another privateer, Lodowick HARRINGTON, was operating out of Nova Scotia 1799-1801, and may be related.

3-Stephen HARRINGTON married Elizabeth Ann MORRIS 10 Dec 1809

6-Edward HARRINGTON b. 1813; m. Sarah RICHARDSON 27 Dec 1843

10-Harriett HARRINGTON


12-Sarah Ann HARRINGTON m. Francis ANNIS; child Sarah ANNIS m. James FORREST

13-Susan HARRINGTON m. Hugh Huston HARLOW; child Laurence Glen HARLOW m. Henrietta Freeman ALLEN


4-James HARRINGTON b. 1794 Nova Scotia; m. Letitia BROWN; d. 1857 (in Maine?). He was a mariner and ship builder. There were allegedly nine sons and two daughters, but only three are known by name.

James moved from Nova Scotia to Bath, Maine, in 1847.

7-Isabella Allen HARRINGTON b. ca 1825 Nova Scotia; m. John Dawson HUME; d. 1892 in Massachusetts, where they had moved.

8-Charles Brodie HARRINGTON b. 12 Sep 1831 at Sullivan, River John, Nova Scotia; lived in Pugwash, Wallace, and Prince Edward Island.

9-Henry Scales HARRINGTON b. 1832, River Sable, Nova Scotia.




Information on the group came from Carol Vater, who is a descendant. It seems likely that this group ties into Group 2, as both are connected to the Lebbeus HARRIS family.

1-Benjamin HARRINGTON of Liverpool, Nova Scotia.

2-Mehitable HARRINGTON m. 27 Sep 1795 at Liverpool, N. S., Rev. Harris HARDING, son of Israel HARDING and Sarah HARRIS [dau. of Lebbeus HARRIS]. They later lived in Yarmouth, N. S. She died 7 March 1850.


Ann Harrington supplied the beginnings of this family line, partly from information she found in the index of New Brunwick Marriage Records. George T. H. Shaw (from a variety of sources, including work by G. F. Somerville) was able to take some of my "bits and pieces" from elsewhere on this webpage, and make a more substantial family out of it.

1-Ebenezer HERRINGTON b. 1794 New Brunswick; d. 25 March 1850 Saint John, New Brunswick. He was a constable in Saint John. He married 1st Catherine LASKEY 24 July 1816 Kings Co., N. B. (Catherine b. 1797, d. 4 Jan 1823 Saint John, the dau. of Nathaniel LASKEY). No known children. Ebenezer married 2nd Martha FEAREBAY 30 May 1824 Saint John, N. B. (Martha b. ca 1793, d. 24 May 1857, dau. of Thomas FEAREBAY). He and Martha had nine children.


3-Elizabeth Annis HERRINGTON

4-Catherine Laskey HERRINGTON

5-Winthrop George HERRINGTON

6-Ebenezer Rider HERRINGTON b. ca 1828 Saint John, N. B., d. 3 Dec 1903 Saint John. He was a City Marshall. Hem. 1st Anna Augusta/Gusta GOLDING [only dau. of James GOLDING and Susan Ann CASE of Wickham, Queens Co., N. B.]. She was b. 1837 in Wickham, and died in Saint John 28 May 1868. Ebenezer and Gusta had five children.


12-Lillie B. HERRINGTON b. 1861 Saint John, N.B.

13-Annie A. HERRINGTON b. 1863 Saint John, N.B.

14-Milton Edward HARRINGTON b. 1866 Saint John, N. B.; d. May 1903 Brooklyn, New York. He m. Ione Margaret FAIRWEATHER 25 Jan 1894 Hampton Station, New Brunswick. One known child.

16-Ebenezer K. HERRINGTON b. ca 1869 Saint John

7-William Thomas HERRINGTON

8-Sarah Margaret HERRINGTON

9-Robert James HERRINGTON

10-Martha Jane HERRINGTON



According to Esther Clarke Wright [1982. Planters and Pioneers, Nova Scotia, 1749 to 1755. Wolfville, N. S.], Andrew HARRINGTON had an early land grant at Grand Lake, Queens Co., N. B. [1786?], and later at Deer Island, Charlotte Co., N. B. He owned property at Moose Island [=Eastport], Washington Co., ME, before 1807 [Washington County deeds]. He or his son Andrew owned property there at least until 1838.

The following family information is largely from B. M. Morse [1947. Early records of Eastport, Maine. Brunswick, ME: Topsham-Brunswick Chapter, D.A.R.]. I found the family name of Andrew's wife in an inquiry on the internet from Dr. Kenneth McKeever of New Brunwick, NJ. NOTE: this family apparently spelled their name HERRINGTON at times.

The family of which James HARRINGTON is the currently known head is not yet joined in my records, but the dates, locations and names used make it almost certain that they belong together.

Subgroup A

James HARRINGTON was born ca. 1789. I first found him at Richibucto, Kent [then Northumberland] Co., New Brunswick, when on 23 Nov 1812 he married Mary E. KOLLOCK. His origins are unknown to me, except that the 1851 Kings County (New Brunswick) census identified him as "of English descent". Mary KOLLOCK was born in New Brunswick ca. 1788, and was the granddaughter of Simon KOLLOCK, a Loyalist from Delaware who settled in the Richibucto area about 1785. Her father was probably Jacob KOLLOCK, but Simon had other sons who might possibly have been her father. James and Mary had three known sons and two daughters in Kent County between 1813 and 1825 [the sons were named in a deed in 1820], and a daughter in 1828. All or most of this family later lived in Kings County.

5-Julia Isabelle HARRINGTON b. 1828 [tombstone record]; m. Samuel Thomas McCULLY ca 1862, many descendants in Sussex area, Kings Co., N. B.; d. 1911, buried with husband at Corn Hill Baptist Cemetery.

 Subgroup B

Kelly Copeland of Barrie, Ontario, provided me with the initial information on these descendants of a James HARRINGTON and Sarah McALLISTER. Census and birth records added to the families. Lisa Zajkowski provided additions and corrections, from her own family info, and from the book "History of Foreston, Carleton County, New Brunswick" by H. N. Bradley (1984). Joy Harrington provided still more information on the group. That Group B is an extension of the previous group appears likely to me, based on the names used [James and Charles Henry] and the birth of James' and Sarah's children in Havelock Parish, Kings County, where some of the above group were living. James-2 appears to be of the same generation as James Simon Kollock HARRINGTON in Subgroup A, but census records put James-2 birth ca. 1826, and James Simon Kollock HARRINGTON was definitely born before 1821. The 1851 census lists James-2 as John J. S. HARRINGTON; subsequent censuses list him merely as James.

Lisa Zajkowski asserts that John (James) HERRINGTON and Mary C. NOWLAN, m. 30 Dec 1813 in Sussex, Kings Co., N. B., are the head of this group. I have no better suggestion. A problem in my mind with making John and Mary [NOWLAN] the head of this group is that there appear to be no "loose" children who can be assigned to them between their marriage in 1813 and the birth of Mary ca. 1819. This isn't impossible, but seems odd. I put them here tentatively, anyway.

 GROUP 8 - Kent and Northumberland Irish/Roman Catholic families

A number of Harrington families came from Ireland to New Brunswick between about 1816 and 1830. Because I have done so little work on this group, this section consists of several short family lines, plus a lot of data on other people who probably go in one of these groups. I leave it to someone else to meld the various mini-families together.

Family A

According to their petitions for land in Northumberland [now Kent] Co., N.B. [microfilms F-4184 and F-4187, PANB], the brothers Patrick and Dennis HARRINGTON were born in Ireland [Dennis ca 1791, Patrick likely a little later]. They came to Canada about 1816. Dennis spent four years in Newfoundland before arriving in Kent County, N. B.; Patrick was in Charlotte County before coming to Richibucto. Other HARRINGTONs from Ireland settled in the area at a somewhat later date.

1-HARRINGTON in Ireland

2-Dennis HARRINGTON b. ca 1791 Ireland; m. Ann _____, who was b. ca 1811 in New Brunswick. Living in Carleton Parish, Kent Co., in 1861.

4-Donald HARRINGTON b. ca 1842 New Brunswick.

3-Patrick HARRINGTON b. say 1795 Ireland. [Note: It seems likely he is the father of John Harrington, Family C-l, below.]


Family B

1-Jeremiah ("Jerry") HARRINGTON b. ca 1821 Ireland (age 40 at the time of the 1861 census); m. Mary COONEY, both of Carleton, Kent County, New Brunswick, 21 Apr 1845.

2-Timothy HARRINGTON b. ca 1846 Kent Co., N. B.


Family C

Kerry E. Price provided some new information on this family in 2001.

1-John HARRINGTON b. ca 1822 Ireland (age 39 at time of 1861 census); d. 22 Feb 1892 Chatham, N. B.; m. Bridget O'LEARY 12 July 1846 Carleton, Kent Co., N. B. [Bridget b. ca 1826 Ireland]. NOTE: Patrick HARRINGTON was witness at John and Bridget's wedding, and also at the christening of one of their children. Patrick (Family A-3) looks like a pretty good fit for John's father.

2-Mary HARRINGTON b. ca 1847 Kent Co., N.B.

3-Honora/Hanorah HARRINGTON b. 28 May 1849 Kent Co., N. B.

4-Timothy HARRINGTON b. 3 July 1851 Kent Co., N.B. Married Bridget MURPHY [of Glenelg, N.B.] 19 Jan 1881.

8-Daniel Edmond HARRINGTON b. 18 May 1896 Kouchibouguac, Kent Co., N.B.

5-John HARRINGTON b. 23 Nov 1853 Kent Co., N. B. This may be the John Harrington buried at Kouchibouguac Catholic Cemetery, 1854-1931 [D. M. Hale (1985), Cemeteries of Kent County].

6-Bridget HARRINGTON b. 20 Nov 1855 Kent Co., N.B. [This may be the Bridget, wife of Henry SMITH, who died 28 Nov 1905, age 48; buried at Kouchibouguac Catholic Cemetery.]

2-Cady/Keady HARRINGTON b. ca 1857 Kent Co., N.B.


Family D

Mary Ellen Farley [Clearwater, Florida] provided information on this family, derived from census records and from the "Dictionary of Miramichi Biographies".

1-John HARRINGTON b. ca1811, Bantry, County Cork, Ireland; d. 22 Feb 1892 Chatham, N. B. He emigrated to Canada with his parents [names not determined] about 1820. He m. Elizabeth O'KEEFE [b. ca 1819 County Cork, Ireland; d. 11 March 1899] at Chatham, Northumberland Co., N. B., 23 Jul 1839. John was a stevedore at Chatham for most of his adult life. In 1869, he received an appointment as the first keeper of the Chatham alms house. He held that position until his death in 1892.

2-Ann HARRINGTON baptized Chatham 30 May 1841, one week old; d. 26 May 1932.

3-Mary HARRINGTON bapt. Chatham 18 Sep 1842, 1 wk old.

4-Elizabeth HARRINGTON b. 24 Mar 1844

8-Timothy Michael HARRINGTON b. ca 1851; d. 6 Feb 1906; m. 2 Apr 1872 Mary DUNN [who was b. ca 1852, d. 20 Jan 1938]. He was a band leader and music teacher in Chatham, N. B.


Family E

This "mini-family" is noted by W. D. Hamilton (1988), Old North Esk revised. Fredericton: Micmac-Maliseet Institute, page 189.

1-Patrick HARRINGTON b. ca 1808, d. after 1883. He came to New Brunswick from Ireland in 1835, was an established farmer at Halcomb, Northumberland Co., N. B. from 1839 onward. He married Jane SUTHERLAND, a neighbor at Halcomb; she was still living at Halcomb in 1902, a widow.

2-Mary Ann HARRINGTON, b. June 1853, died unmarried in Jan 1912.


Family F

This family is included in the 1851 Newcastle, Northumberland Co., N. B., census:

1-Timothy HARRINGTON b. ca 1820 Ireland; emigrated 1840; m. Julia __, b. ca 1822, who emigrated from Ireland 1841.

2-Daniel HARRINGTON b. ca 1846 New Brunswick

3-John HARRINGTON b. ca 1850 New Brunswick


Family G

This group was brought to my attention by Mary Ellen Farley, and is known on the basis of the 1851 Glenelg, New Brunswick census, and property records. On 10 April 1838, Timothy and Ann HARRINGTON of Glenelg transferred land to John HARRINGTON, with the stipulation that John would pay £6 to Timothy and Ann for the rest of their life. A later transaction showed that the John HARRINGTON involved in this indenture was the husband of Elizabeth O'KEEFE [D-1, above]. This may indicate that Timothy is the father of John HARRINGTON [D-1].

1-Timothy HARRINGTON b. 1783 Ireland; immigrated to Canada Sept 1817; married Ann ____ in Ireland (she died between 1840 and 1851). He was a shoemaker, and lived in Glenelg (with his son Michael in 1851).

2 (probably)-John HARRINGTON [D-1, above]

3-Michael HARRINGTON b. 1816 Ireland; immigrated with his parents Sept 1817; m. Mary _____ by 1840 (she was born 1821). Children probably all born Glenelg.

4-John HARRINGTON b. ca 1840 New Brunswick

5-Mary HARRINGTON b. ca 1842 New Brunswick

6-Ann HARRINGTON b. ca 1844 New Brunswick

7-Jeremiah HARRINGTON b. ca 1848 New Brunswick

8-Helen HARRINGTON b. ca 1849 New Brunswick


Family H

Marlene Graham (Delta, British Columbia) provided info on this family group. The dates and places fit well with Family G, above.

1-Timothy H. HARRINGTON m. Catherine (Kate) NASH in Chatham, N. B., 26 Sept 1870. The service was performed by Father Varrily, and the witnesses were Patrick NASH (Catherine's brother) and Anne HARRINGTON (maybe Timothy's sister?). Catherine was born ca 1846 in Glenelg, Northumberland Co., N. B. After they were married, they lived in Escuminac.

2-Mary HARRINGTON b. 29 Feb 1872

3-George James HARRINGTON b. 18 Feb 1874, baptized by Father Verrily in Chatham, N. B. He died 10 June 1942. He married Margaret STEWART/STUART 24 Oct 1905 Kent Co., N.B.

4-Michael HARRINGTON b. 10 June 1877

This family group is first identified by me in the 1861 New Brunswick census when they were at Havelock Parish, Kings County. Some of the family was later in Saint John County. The first in this line, Joseph, was probably born in Ireland, but I don't know when he came to Canada. The family was Roman Catholic.

GROUP 10 - Westfield-Greenwich Families

Lloyd Webber (Cloverdale, New Brunswick) helped me sort out some of this group into one family, with Jason HARRINGTON and Prudence CRABB as the earliest identified generation.

Family A

1-Jason HARRINGTON b. ca 1818, place undetermined; married Prudence CRABB (dau. of Lemuel Jenkins CRABB and Sarah Margaret LOUNDER) 28 Dec 1844 at Greenwich, Kings Co., N. B. Jason d. 23 Jan 1896 at Cloverdale, Carleton Co., N. B. Prudence d. ca 1906 at Cloverdale.

According to Lloyd Webber, Jason Harrington moved his family from Greenwich, Kings Co., N. B. to what is now Bright Parish, York Co., N. B. Jason's father-in-law, Lemuel Crabb, moved his family there, also. In 1877 Jason and his family were among the first settlers of what is now Cloverdale, Brighton Parish, Carleton Co., N. B. Jason had an 1884 Crown land grand at Brighton.

2-Joshua Lemuel HARRINGTON b. ca 1847, probably at Greenwich, Kings Co., N. B.; m. Hannah E. ANDERSON; d. before 1824 at East Cloverdale, Carleton Co., N. B. He had a Crown land grant at Brighton, N. B. 1884.

3-Sara Ann HARRINGTON b. ca 1849; d. before 1924 East Cloverdale, N. B.

4-Charlotte Elizabeth HARRINGTON b. ca 1852; m. Morris DOUCETT.

5-Henry Allen HARRINGTON b. 24 Apr 1856; never married; d. 18 Oct 1924 East Cloverdale, N. B. He had a Crown land grant at Brighton, N. B. 1884.

6-Eliza A. HARRINGTON b. ca 1858; m. Hiram GOOD.

7-Mary M. HARRINGTON b. ca 1859; d. before 1871.

8-Emma Agnes HARRINGTON b. 31 Mar 1864; m. Thomas J. MILTON 1 Sep 1900 Cloverdale, Carleton Co., N. B.; d. 27 Oct 1949 East Cloverdale, N. B.

9-William E. HARRINGTON b. 10 Apr 1865; m. Rhoda A. GRANT in York Co., N. B. 3 July 1889. [Note: in another record, his middle initial is given as "M."]

11-William Edison HARRINGTON b. 30 Apr 1896 Royalton, Carleton Co., N. B.

12-Herbert Sterling HARRINGTON b.28 June 1897 Cloverdale, Carleton Co., N. B.

10-Ida Mae HARRINGTON b. 28 Aug 1868.


Family B

This group, all of which spelled their name HERRINGTON, was in Kings County, New Brunswick, in Westfield and Greenwich parishes at least as early as 1816. From censuses, birth records, marriage records, and family names used, the following are tentatively included in the same tree. as the Jason HARRINGTON family, above. I don't have enough information to connect many of the individuals, so I've put them in chronological "generations"; their individual relationships within "generations" are often still unclear to me.

Earliest Generation

-Mary HERRINGTON m. James FOLSOM 9 Aug 1819


Second Generation

-Eliza Ann HERRINGTON m. Jessie HARVEY 2 Feb 1836

-Charlotte HERRINGTON of Greenwich, Kings Co., N. B.; m. William B. WORDEN 31 Aug 1837 Kings Co., N. B. William was b. 1814, son of Anderson G. WORDEN and Elizabeth WILLIAMS. Charlotte and William had children [WORDEN] William Allen 1841, Amelia 1843, and Albert Amasa 1846. Charlotte apparently died by 1848, as William married again 26 Oct 1848.

-Matilda Jane HERRINGTON m. Ebenezer PERRY 17 Oct 1837

-Amasa HERRINGTON b. ca 1824; m. Mary J. ____ [b. ca 1826]; children:

-Charlotte HERRINGTON b. ca 1848
