Descendents of James Nesbitt (ca 1775 – 28 Dec, 1851)
and Catherine 'Elspeth' Carr (3 Nov 1776 – before May, 1837)

FIRST Immigrant Generation

1. James Nesbitt 

Born Approx 1775 in North., Eng.

   

There were two Nesbitt families among the first Harvey Settlement settlers, James Nesbitt and John Nesbitt.   The relationship between the two is unknown at this time.

   

James was a widower in 1837, when he came to New Brunswick with two sons, George and James, and daughter Elspeth, on the brig. "Cornelius of Sunderland", along with the first settlers of Harvey.   He settled on Lot #12W, 100 acres in Harvey Settlement.   He sold his land to John Kilpatrick on 14 Dec 1844, whose name is shown on the Land Grants Map.   Presumably after he sold his property he moved to Maine to live with his daughter, Elspeth.   The 1850 Census for Robbinston, Maine shows "James Mashbeth, age 75, born in England" living with John and Elizabeth Larner.   This name perhaps should have been "James Nesbitt", and James later died in Maine based on his obituary (see below).

    

James, or someone in his family, wrote a Journal of their   voyage to America.

    

According to family records in the Nesbitt Bible, there were six children.

   

He married Catherine 'Elspeth' Carr (b. 3 Nov 1776, Norham, Northumberland, England), before 1811 in Eng. Died before May 1837 in Eng.  

The following obituary for James Nesbitt was provided courtesy of descendant Sharon Howland, Washington Co., Maine (28 May, 2007):

       

Calais Advertiser: Jan 22, 1852 p. 2

   

"Died in Robbinston, [Maine] Dec 28, 1851, James Nesbit, aged about 69 years.

       

"He was a native of the North of England, where he became a member of the Presbyterian Church at the age of 19. About 15 years since, he emigrated to New Brunswick with a number of his relations and friends and with them, commenced what is termed, the Harvey Settlement, about 25 miles from Fredericton. A Church was soon formed, and Mr. Nesbit was chosen one of its Elders. -- Some years ago, he removed to Robbinston, and connected himself with the Congregational Church of that place. The uniform testimony of his Pastor, and of all who knew him is that he was a good man and eminently a Bible Christian. Having not only a thorough knowledge of the Bible but having imbibed its spirit, and exemplified its precepts. An aged friend who visited him often, remarked, that his visits were always rich spiritual feasts, and he felt that he was drawn nearer heaven, by their influence. - His Pastor told the writer, that his deathbed, though one of great suffering, was one of calm resignation, humble trust in Christ, and joyful hope of a glorious and blessed immortality in heaven."

Rest from thy lov'd employ
The battle fought, the victory won.
Enter thy Master's joy."

The following note is attached inside the clock:   "This story of the old clock was related by Mrs David Larner, wife of David S. Larner, who in turn was told the story by the owners, Mr and Mrs John Larner, 83 Union St., Calais, Maine.   Both Mr and Mrs John Larner lived with their son and family for years at the above address.   The clock was made by a member of the family, a clockmaker for the wedding present of Mr and Mrs James Nesbitt (Elspeth), parents of Elspeth Nesbitt Larner.   Elspeth Nesbitt Larner was born Sept 11, 1818 and died Nov 14, 1911.   The old clock was made about 1802 or 1803.   It has kept excellent time through the years."

 

From newspaper obituary (Calais, Me., 1911):

   

Mrs Elspeth Larner, relict of the last John Larner, and probably the oldest woman in this city, died at the home of her son, David S. Larner, 85 Union street, early Sunday morning, Nov. 12, aged 93 years and 2 months.   Death was due to the infirmities of old age.   Born in Berwick, England, Sept. 11, 1818, she, with the rest of the family, came to this country at the age of 12 years, and settled in Harvey Settlement, N.B.   At that early period Harvey and all York County, was a vast wilderness, being practically uninhabited by human beings.   After a stay there they migrated to Milltown, Me., thence to Robbinston, and later to Calais, where she has since lived.   She has been a permanent resident of Calais for 54 years.   The place where Mrs Larner was born in England is situated on the River Tweed, directly on the boundary line between that country and Scotland; geographically the same as Calais and St. Stephen, which undoubtedly had a lot to do with their fixing Calais as their final home.   In her own home she practiced all the thrift and good qualities that the people of her native country are noted for.   Mrs Larner raised a large family of 11 children of which seven are living, namely:   John and David S., who reside in Calais, Mrs Elizabeth Furbush of Princeton, Thomas of Princeton, Mrs Anne Vaughan of New York city, Robert A. of Wausau, Wis., and George of Orono.   She also leaves 20 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.   Mrs Larner at the time of her death was the oldest member of the Congregational church of this city.   Deceased had been confined to her bed for 11 years, being utterly unable to move without assistance.   During the entire period of her illness, her every want has been kindly administered to by her children.   The people of our city will regret the passing away of one so long a resident, as she was known by all and universally respected.   Until only a few weeks ago her mind was unusually bright for one so advanced in years, and the anecdotes and experiences in the old country were often listened to by her friends with great delight.   She retained until the end the quaint mode of speech of the country of her birth, being a rich and pleasing mixture of Scotch and English dialect.

   

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, Nov 14, and will be conducted by Rev. R. A. McDonald, assisted by Rev. C. G. McCully, pastor emeritous of the Congregational church.

 

She married John Larner. Born 29 Sep 1815 in Eng. Died 14 Aug 1900 in Calais, Maine. Buried in Calais, Me.

   

Information on John Larner, Elspeth Nesbitt and family was taken from photocopy of birth records of Nesbitts and Larners in their Family Bible Dictionary, obituary for Elspeth, and family information   provided by Sharon Howland.

   

John and Elspeth Larner transferred to the Calais Congregational Church from Robbinston, Maine in October 1873.

Masses of beautiful flowers, including a lovely bouquet from Mayor and Mrs David Leeming greeted Mrs Margaret Cessford, pioneer resident of Victoria, on the attainment of her ninetieth birthday yesterday.

   

Sixty years in this city have brought many friends to the venerable resident, and a host of them called to tender their personal congratulations and good wishes at her home on Mary Street, Victoria West, where she lives with her daughter.   Despite her great age, Mrs Cessford is extraordinarily alert and in possession of all her faculties, and she exchanged many reminiscences and reciprocated the good wishes over the tea cups, both afternoon and evening.

   

Historic Tea Cups

And the tea cups themselves have almost as interesting a history as Mrs Cessford, for they were presented to her by the late Sir James Douglas, former Governor of British Columbia, and are of the capacious size beloved of early Victorian appetites!

   

Assisting in receiving the guests during the afternoon and evening were Mrs Cessford's daughter, Mrs J. C. Dodds, also Mrs George Cessford, Mrs R. Campbell and Miss Muriel Cessford.   Mr Tom Cessford came over from Seattle to celebrate his mother's birthday.   Those serving tea were Mrs George Cessford, Miss Muriel Cessford, Mrs R. Dalziel and Mrs R. Campbell.

William R.
