Harrington Family Bibliography

Below are references I used in compiling the information on my webpage on the early Harrington families of Maritime Canada (link above). Many of these are e-mail references; most of the books and formal reports are cited with the pertinent families on the Harrington webpage. I have left out e-mail and regular mail addresses in the interest of maintaining the privacy of my correspondents. However, if you see someone you would like to correspond with, let me know, and I'll try to put them in touch with you. (With so many people now corresponding only through "social media" sites, a lot of older e-mail addresses are no longer valid.) 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.

A summary of information on the Loyalist Jacob Kollock, prepared by Dr. David R. Facey-Crowther, and deposited in the Provincial Archives, Fredericton, N.B.
The KOLLOCK family had been resident in Delaware since at least the 1650s. Simon Kollock, and two of Simon's sons, Jacob and Joseph, were in the Loyal American Regiment of Loyalists, although both the boys were too young to be "legal" (Jacob was only 13 when he enlisted as a volunteer in March 1782, and Joseph was even younger; the official minimum age for serving was 16). Jacob KOLLOCK was b. 1769 in Sussex Co., DE - probably at Lewes. He apparently lived with his parents until 1789 when he acquired a land grant of his own. On 20 Feb 1790 he m. Miriam NORTON, dau. of one of the county magistrates. Jacob and Miriam had several children, but the record isn't clear about who belongs to who.

I was wondering about the source of your information [on the original version of my website] for the birth date (31 Jan 1895) and birthplace (Blaine, Maine) for Oliver Arthur "Alvie" Harrington. My grandfather's gravestone lists his birthdate as 3 Jan 1898. I also understood that he was born in Biggar Ridge, New Brunswick (although he later lived in Blaine, Maine, for many years). I had assumed that my grandfather, who went by Arthur when I knew him, was the same person as Oliver Arthur, but your listing of the 31 Jan 1895 birthdate makes me suspect that perhaps William Albert and Sarah Jameson had two sons, one named Arthur and one named Oliver."

The Maritime Provinces area of Canada was ceded by France to Great Britain with the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, but the British hold was tenuous and war threatened again around mid-Century. The Acadians repeatedly refused to swear oaths of allegiance to the British Crown, and Governor Charles Lawrence -without consultation with the Home Government - ordered all Acadians removed from Nova Scotia, to remove the threat of their taking sides in any conflict with the French. In Sept 1775, 3000 Acadians were taken aboard ship and removed to various locations in the southern colonies. The houses are Grand-Pre were burned so that those who escaped roundup would be unlikely to come back.
Governor Lawrence didn't want the Acadian improvements to the land to disappear, so made plans to get the land resettled with Englishmen. The Home Government wanted to give the land to disbanded English soldiers, but Lawrence strongly demurred. He said that soldiers were not the right kind of people to start a country with, that every soldier who had ever come to Halifax had either returned to England or become a dramseller! The Lords of Trade agreed, and Lawrence drew up a proposal to offer the land to New England colonists. The original proclamation was made 12 Oct 1758, followed by details of the settlement 11 Jan 1759.
In April 1759, agents from Rhode Island and Connecticut visited Nova Scotia and were favorably impressed. The first settlers arrived in the spring of 1760.
Names of persons at Falmouth 15 Nov 1760 include: Jabez HARRINGTON, Alex. McCULLOUGH, Adam McCULLOUGH, and David PAKE [PIKE].

Kenneth Harrington McKeever (Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ) wrote the following:
I am looking for a series of articles written by J. Vroom for the St. Croix Courier and published at the end of the last century. In particular, I am looking for info on several of my ancestors who settled in the area in the mid-1700's. Andrew Harrington, my original ancestor in Eastport, supposedly had a land grant on Grand Lake and lost it when the Loyalists moved in to the area. Esther Clarke Wright indicates in her book that he and about 25-30 other original settlers were given a special compensation for the land lost when the Loyalists were settled. Her appendix to that book shows that he had an original grant at Grand Lakeand a second grant on Deer Island. His first few children (Andrew II, b.1776, Deer Island) were born there and the others born on Moose Island.
Andrew married Jane Frost, daughter of James and Sarah (Nason) Frost. One
reference indicates that her father and brother built the first sawmill on
the St. Croix River. I am looking for any information on the Harringtons
and Frosts which might be in the Vroom articles and/or other sources in the
region.

My ggg.grandfather Alexander Wentworth MACDONALD (M.D.), b.ca 1782, Skye,Scotland, arrived N.S. about 1808, m.Charlotte Leonora HARRINGTON, 1812, Antigonish, N.S., d.1871 Antigonish. Children : Ann, Sophie, Margaret, Charlotte, Alexander, Mary, Archibald, Daniel, Henrietta, William.
Alexander's wife - Charlotte Leonora HARRINGTON, b.1796 Kentville, d.1865.
I am descended from their daughter Charlotte Leonora MACDONALD, b. 1821 Merigonish, who married the Rev. John GEDDIE 1839 Antigonish, first Canadian missionary to the New Hebrides, and who later settled in Australia.
Charlotte HARRINGTON's parents were Daniel HARRINGTON b. 1774, d. 1827 Antigonish, and Ann Eliza DE WOLF b. 1778. Using the Church of Latter DaySaints Ancestral File I have obtained parents of Daniel as Stephen HARRINGTON b. ca 1745, New London , Connecticut and Amey HARRIS. Stephen's parents seem to have been Stephen HARRINGTON and Elizabeth SHIPPEL.

45. L. Zajkowski. 1999. [Information on Harrington family]. e-mail March 1999.
The following additions/corrections/comments were provided by Lisa Zajkowski concerning [the first edition of] my webpage on the HARRINGTON families.

"In unidentified Harringtons, Part 4 - From Kings County Marriage Registers:
James HERRINGTON and Jane McCULISHAN, both Studholm Parish, 11 Nov 1847-This is the marriage record for James Harrington & Sarah Jane McAllister
Group 4, Subgroup B. Sarah's surname was apparently mangled by the person
recording the marriage.

Group 8 Earliest Generation-John HERRINGTON m. Mary NOWLAN 30 Dec 1813 - John (James) Herrington & Mary C. Nowlan are the parents of James Herrington (Harrington), mentioned above, who married Sarah Jane McAllister.
The 1851 Kings County Census also shows two daughters of John & Mary, and
sisters of James:
1) Mary C. Herrington, born 1819 in Sussex.
2) Martha Jane Herrington, born 1824 in Sussex, married James Howe on 2 June 1852 in Studholm. [NOTE: I am not convinced that these are the parents of James HARRINGTON who m. Sarah McALLISTER - SRW]

There are some corrections and additions I can make to the children of
James Harrington & Sarah Jane McAllister:
1) Susan Elizabeth Harrington, born 21 March 1849, Kings County. married
William Alfred Biggar in Havelock, Kings County on 17 Apr 1867. William
Alfred was born December 1845 in Mount Hebron, Kings County. ( Susan &
Alfred are my 2nd great-grandaunt & uncle).

CORRECTION: 2) William J. Harrington - born 1854 - married Sarah Jane Jamieson & 3) Albert Harrington - born ca 1857. These are the same individual. His correct name is William Albert Harrington. He was born ca 1864 in Havelock, Kings County. He married Sarah Jane Jamison about 1880 in Hayden Ridge, Aberdeen Parish, Carleton County. There was no other William or Albert born to James & Sarah.

4) Theresa Harrington - born ca 1857 in Havelock, Kings County. Married
William T. Bell, who was born 20 Dec 1857 in Millstream, Kings County. They
were married before 1879, as their daughter, Margaret Bell was born 19 March
1879 in Gordonsville, Carleton County.

5) Mary Jane Harrington - birth is correct - additionally, she married a Mr.
Ferguson.

6) Victoria Augusta Harrington - born ca 1863 in Havelock Parish, Kings
County. She married Arthur Heath.

7) Genevera Harrington - born 1867 in Havelock Parish. She married Ezra
Filamore on 8 Jan 1892 in Biggar Ridge, Carleton County.

Lastly, there is possibly an additional child of James Herrington & Sarah
McAllister. The 1891 census of Aberdeen Parish, Carleton County shows James & Sarah with a one year old child, Noel Harrington, who is listed as their son. Sarah died two years later, in 1893. Someone gave me a death date for James
as 1870. However, this is impossible, as James & Sarah moved to Biggar Ridge
in the 1880s. Also, if Noel was indeed their "surprise" last child, he was born in 1890.
And finally, Herbert Neil Bradley, author of "History of Foreston, Carleton
County, New Brunswick" states that James Harrington was known to still be
alive in 1902.

Children of William Albert Harrington & Sarah Jane
Jamieson:
1) Grace Athlinda Harrington - born 1878, married Willis Branscombe, 5 Aug
1897.
2) Pearl Ralph Harrington - birth & death correct. He married Bertha
Branscombe, 22 Oct 1901, After Bertha's death in 1919, Pearl moved to Maine
and married Bertha Green. Nine children are attributed to first wife, Bertha
Branscombe.
3) Lida (Lydia) Rebecca Harrington - birth correct. She died on 26 Dec 1959.
She married FIRST: Charles W. Hayden, on 28 Sept 1898.
She married SECOND: George Boyd, on 18 Aug 1926.
4) Bessie Augusta Victoria Harrington - birth correct. She died 6 Sept 1950.
She married FIRST: William Lunnie
She married SECOND: Jacob Lunnie (William's brother)
5) Susan E. Harrington - She married FIRST: Harvey Branscombe, 15 April 1903
She married SECOND: Nehemiah Burpee (Durpee is a misspelling)
6) Annie May Harrington - born in Juniper, Aberdeen Parish - not Jupiter.
She married: Sidney Stanton around 1903 in Biggar Ridge. They eventually moved to Vancouver in the 1940s, where Sidney died in 1947. Annie later married a Mr. ROGERS,and she died in Toronto. I have no
record of a marriage to aMr. Foster.
7) Oliver Arthur Harrington - Alvie was a nickname.
8) Alma Margaret Harrington - birth correct. She died on 22 Nov 1912, at age
14,Hayden Ridge, Carleton County
9) Jean Harrington - She married Charles Harrington (her first cousin) in May
1902,and died in 1941. Charles's father, Charles Henry Harrington,
and Jean's father, William Albert Harrington, were brothers.

All of the above info is included in "History of Foreston, Carleton County,
New Brunswick, Including the Adjacent Communities of Biggar Ridge and
Beaufort," by Herbert Neil Bradley, 1984.
