        Tips on finding parents using the number system:

  • To find the father double the number, add one for the mother.  
  • example--
  •  # 17 is Olive Scribner
  •  Double 17 to get her father # 34 Thaddeus Scribner,
  •  add one , so # 35 for her mother, Prudence Morrell.
  • Husbands and fathers are always even numbers--wives and mothers, odd numbers.
  • Please check the information yourself.  I have not verified everything and there may be mistakes

 A wedding of much interest took place July 23rd, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Wood, Southfield, when their daughter, Gladys R. Allaby, was united in marriage to Ivan W. Reid.   The ceremony was performed by the Rev. I. E. Vanwart of Norton.  The bride, who was unattended, looked charming in white silk with bridal veil.  The ceremony took place on the lawn, under an arch prettily decorated with the Union Jack, ferns and roses.   Supper was served to about 50 invited guests.   The young couple received many valuable and useful gifts of furniture, silver and linen.  The bride was a popular school teacher and the groom is a returned soldier, having served two years in France for his King.   We wish them much happiness in their married life.   They will reside in Norton.

Notes for William Torrance Reid:

The death of
William T. Reid which occurred on Wed. of last week, removed one of the most respected citizens of Clintondale. His death was a great shock to all, having been sick but ten days. He was considerably better the night before his death, so that his family entertained hopes of his recovery, but in the morning a change came that took him off suddenly. His parting words were that he had no fear of death.

He will be greatly missed by his family, having been a kind and loving husband and father and will also be greatly missed by the community at large, being associated with them in a business way. He had for ten years been agent at the Clintondale depot and filled his position faithfully and completely. He leaves to mourn  his loss a wife and one child,  an aged mother, a sister and several brothers. The funeral took place at his late residence on Saturday morning. His many friends expressed their sympathy for the bereaved family by sending many beautiful floral pieces. Internment in Lloyd cemetery

Note:  Willie Reid learned telegraphy at Bloomfield Station with Mr. DeWinton. He had a position at Winstead CT before going to Clintondale NY.  We are told he died of typhoid fever.

Mrs. Keirstead was only taken ill on Friday and it was not until Sunday morning that her case was considered fatal or even dangerous. Rev Dr Gates held a solemn service at the home last evening. The remains will be conveyed this morning by train to Apohaqui, and thence to Collina, where internment takes place."

Note for Charles Allaby:


Allaby-At Salt Springs, N.B., Jan. 13th, 1904
Charles Allaby aged 43 years. Brother Allaby was baptized about 28 years ago, by the Rev. O.N. Keith, and was one of the charter members of the Salt Springs Baptist Church. For years he has been both Deacon and Church Clerk,  fulfilling the duties of both with ability and consecration. He was always present at the stated meeting of the church, was always a source of inspiration to his pastor and always ready to forward the cause of Christ in any way that laid in his power. In his removal from us the little church has sustained a great loss but can rejoice in the fact that one more of its members has joined the ever increasing assembly above. Our departed brother leaves a wife, five small children and a host of relatives and friends to mourn their loss. My the God of comfort sustain the sorrowing family in their time of trial.

The 1881 census with Christine Budge living with her aunt and uncle. District  #24   District Queens #89        Bernard Flanagan and Christine Budge were married 19 Nov 1864

























Notes for John Budge

 John Budge was a policeman.   His sister Christine  Budge married Bernard Flanagan 17 Nov. 1864 at the St. Andrews Church, Saint John


 A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants before Confederation  by Donald Whyte  -----"John Budge  1816-1874 from Cai to St. John, NB. The Highlander, 21 Feb 1874"

Obituary:  27 Jan 1874    an inquest was held on John Budge who died at his residence, corner Pitt and Mechlenburg streets Saint John (click for map), yesterday.  He was employed as blacksmith at the water and sewage works Leinster St. He was a city constable before the organization of the present police force. Death was due to heart disease at age 58. Left family of four.

Was formerly of Caithness, Scot.

Notes:  Catherine Elizabeth Budge married 8 Dec 1880 to Edward J Hayden, Boston.

 In the will John Budge states he left a family of four which doesn't include his daughter Christine Budge.  In the 1881 census, Christine  is living with her aunt and uncle, Christine and Bernard Flannigan. A possibility that they adopted her.

From Delia's Story  " Bernard Flanagan's wife was a Budge, I think, Aunt Tine's aunt............He lived with Uncle Charlie and Aunt Tine and then when Uncle Charlie died, he stayed there."

Child of John Budge and Elizabeth Greer---- Christine Henderson Budge

 John Budge is a widower in the 1871 census.

15Elizabeth  Greer ?

 b. Scotland 1824





Record of Elizabeth Greer is in the family Bible . Daughter Christine born 17 August 1867.

Dec 2010: I found a copy of Christine Henderson Budge’s Birth Certificate on the LDS website. It was filed with the American Consulate in the City of Saint John.. It says there were no records of Christine’s birth due to “the Great fire in 1899 when the family was burned out with all their belongings.” I suspect Christine was applying for a passport to visit her son who lived in Michigan, Albert Allaby.

This Birth Certificate was filed September 10th, 1930


Mother: Elizabeth Greer 

It gives Elizabeth Greer’s racial origin as Scottish.

Birthplace: Scotland

Age of mother last birthday:      Age 43 at birth of Christine

Age of father last birthday        Age 48 at birth of Christine

Are parents married: Yes..

Children of this mother including this birth (Number now living) 5

.father:                                 John Budge       (Scottish)       Blacksmith and City Policeman, Age 48 years at Christine’s birth;
mother full maiden name :     Elizabeth Greer( Scottish)....

Note:  This doesn’t make sense as the details fit Elizabeth Gear who died in 1856!  Her mother was not Elizabeth Gear! Maybe Christine didn’t know who her mother was.

       I want to thank Vonda Reid Adams who has been researching all the descendants of James Reid and has published: Foot Prints in Kings County, New Brunswick   The Reid Lines She has shared a wealth of information!  Vonda's book is in the Archives at the University of New Brunswick, also at the Hampton Museum.

 Notes for James Reid and Olive Scribner:

 Mickie Coram e-mailed with the following information copied from the Coram family Bible, "James Reid born June 25th 1782,m.1809 Olave Scribner b. Oct 18th 1790. They had 11 children."

Mickie is a descendant of James Reid's daughter, Lilley, and gave me the following information:

Lilley Reid (James Reid's daughter) married John Kimball . John was the owner of the sailing vessel called the Defiance of Saint John.

Children of Lilley Reid and John Kimball are listed as: 

George B.     born 29 June 1840


Olivia Jane    born 13 Feb 1842

Olivia married Peter Mills in 1858 and remarried Joseph McAfee in 1868.

Lilley              born 20 July 1844

 married Joseph LeBaron Coram and moved to the U.S.A.  Their children were Elva, Gwen, Earnest and Joseph McAfee.

Thanks to Mickie Coram for the above information and for the birth date of James Reid.

I  found in The Vital Statistics 1850- 1852 the following:
9th August 1851 NBC
item 1353   m. 8th inst., by Rev. Robert Irvine/  Alexander
Campbell / Mrs. Lilly Kimball

From the search and extract records of newspapers in New Brunswick, there is this following item from The Daily Telegraph 25 Feb 1884:
item 327
" Suddenly, in Portland St. John , on the morning of the 25th inst., Mrs. Lillie Campbell, daughter of the late James Reid, of Aberdeen, Scotland, aged 67 years. Funeral this day (Wednesday) at half past two o'clock, from the residence of her son- in- law, Joseph McAfee, Paradise Row. Friends and acquaintances are respectfully invited to attend."

I will include item 336  in the same newspaper:
d. Saint John city ,Saturday morn. 23 inst, of consumption, Joseph J. Reid, age 24, s/o James Reid, formerly of Upham (Kings Co.) 27 February 1884        D.T.
My guess is that James Reid (son of
James Reid b.1782) put the notice of the untimely death of his son and his sister's, Lilley's, death at the same time. Luckily for us he included her father's name and place of birth.

 The census listed
James Reid as entering the colony of NB in 1808.

 Thaddeus Scribner in his memorial in 1812 petitioning for land on the Nerepis River says, ".....and James Reid a native of
 Scotland his son-in-law, his present residence quite insufficient for the maintenance of his numerous family... "

James Reid was the jailkeeper in Kingston from March 1845 to October 1815. 

 This from the story of Henry Moore Smith, The Mysterious Stranger by Walter Bates."................................and from the considerable trouble the prisoner was known to have given, I had little hope of finding anyone to take the charge.  However I prevailed with James Reid (a man in whom I could confide) to undertake the charge of him; who , with his family moved into the house the day following.
After this Smith seemed more cheerful, and became rather more quiet, until the 24th of March, when I was called on by the jailer, who informed me that Smith was attempting to break through the partition where the stove pipe passed through to the debtors' room."

In the book, Westfield, a History told by Residents, 1997, by Suzanne Sutton on page 146 is the following:  "Nerepis..... the property between the [Woman's Institute] hall and the Nase land was owned at one time by the Reids and later by the McKenzies.....[It is said that] in 1817 James Reid purchased 1000 acres in this area from John Coffin.  Mr. Reid built the house at 9 Britain Road. The house seems " off the beaten track" today, but in the early 1800's the main road ran past it...... In 1840 James Reid sold the house and 240 acres between Nerepis road and the river  to David McKenzie."

The Reid family moved to a farm in Salt Springs, Upham parish.


  Some people have said  that James is the son of Loyalists, James Reid and Sarah Bull. Adelia Campbell gave the following account as told to her by Alexander, James' and Olive's grandson, "Among the three thousand Loyalists who landed in Saint John, New Brunswick, in 1783, was the Reid family of Scottish descent. Before leaving New England they had buried their wealth-  even the women's silk dresses, expecting to go back later and get what they had buried. They did after the war was over, but the place was so different that they never found what they had buried and came back disappointed."

  There is no doubt James Reid is from Aberdeen and his grandson might have been mixed up with the Scribner or Morrell families that married into the Reid family

Will of James Reid:

     I declare it to be my will and pleasure that my beloved wife Olive be maintained out of my effects during her natural life, as far as they go and state the principal to be as follows:

 Note and speculation:           Looking at the IGI, there is a James Reid christened 1 July 1782 at  Insch, Aberdeen.

                                          The parents were Alexander Reid and Lilias Watt.  Also from the IGI, Alexander  Reid married Lily Watt  23 Aug. 1781.

Margaret Reid     christened    11 Jun 1784     Insch

Alexander Reid   christened     27 Jun 1786     Insch

George Reid       christened     24 Jun 1798     Culsamond, Aberdeen
