The 1877 and 1889 land transactions left the original 1853 parcel divided into six parts. There were three strips 33 feet in width extending from the shore south to the Langois Lake Brook and each of these strips were divided into two by the Main Road. From west to east, the owners of the segments north of the Main Road were Mrs. Emma Bissett, Mrs. Melanie Maguet, and Mrs. Adele Joyce and those south of the Main Road were Mrs. Adele Joyce, Mrs. Emma Bissett, and Eugene Solomom. Alfred Bissett later (in 1908) purchased a 66 foot wide parcel from the Main Road to the brook that was immediately to the east that of Eugene Solomon.

Property - [date: 09 FEB 1877] [place: D'Escousse, Richmond, Nova Scotia, Canada]
Melanie Bareste and the other heirs of Victor Maguet (Alfred Bissett, Emma Bissett, and Adell Maguet) sold to Eugene Solomon for a sum of "6£ or $24" a 33 foot strip of land of "about a half acre" that lay south of the "Main Road leading to Grandique Ferry" abutting that of Desire Poirier. This was a portion of land that Victor had acquired in 1854

Property - [date: 22 MAY 1889] [place: D'Escousse, Richmond, Nova Scotia, Canada]
Melanie Bareste and her daughter, Adele Joyce, sold for $1 to her other daughter,Mrs. Emma Bissett, a 33 foot wide strip of land extending from the shore to the brook from Obar (now Langois) Lake that was part of the land purchased by Victor Maguet in 1854. Below the Main Road, the land was bounded on the west by the property sold the same day to Adele Joyce and on the east by that of Eugene Solomon. Above the Main Road, it was bounded on the west by the property of Maximin Joyce and on the east by that retained by Melanie Bareste.

Property - [date: 22 MAY 1889] [place: D'Escousse, Richmond, Nova Scotia, Canada]

Event Note -

It is not clear who Melanie's father is. Her birth record identifies Jeanne Dorau as her mother, but only identifies John Joseph Bareste as Jeanne's husband. The birth was reported by an Emanuel Dubois, whereas it was generally the father of the child who reported the birth. The 1871 census shows living with her husband, Victor Hillaire Maguet. The 1881 census shows her living with her daughter, Mrs. Alfred Bissett. The 1891 census shows her living with another daughter, Mrs. Adele Joyce. She is shown as living with a grand-daughter, Mrs. Ronald Poirier, in Nova Scotia at the time of her death in 1918. An extended death notice, written and printed up by another of her grand-daughters , Mrs. Emma Bissett, is in the files at Saint Hyacinth's Church in D'Escousse.

Event Note -

The conclusion that the Ann Bisset who married John Cogill was the child of John George Bisset is tentative. Her association with the Cole Harbour Bissetts is based on the fact that there were a John Cogill and wife Ann living in Cole Harbour in the 1820s and 1830s near the Bissetts, whereas there are no other known Bissett families in Nova Scotia at that that time. Assuming that association, her 1805 marriage virtually assures that she is the child of John George Bisset, since all of his brothers were too young and his father's children are all accounted for.

father: Bizet, Jean George (b1737 - <1788)
mother: Metin, Judith (~1738 - )
John George Bisset was said by Pelletier to have an additional son named Samuel.

It is faintly possible that this John Geoge Bissett and his family lived for a few years in Massachusetts sometime in this period. This possibility is raised by the fact that the marriage record of his son, George Edward Bissett, claims that he was born in Massachusetts. In addition, one should note that no baptism record has been found in Nova Scotia for George Edward Bissett, although baptism records have been found there for all of his siblings

Occupation -
Farmer

Property - [date: 15 JUN 1811] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
A grant confirmed the 148+ acres occupied by George Bissett and which was bounded by the original Bissett - Harper grant, Tobias Miller's grant, and Beamish (Bissett) Lake. In addition, 1631 adjoining acres in equal shares were granted to George Bissett, Samuel Bissett, James Bissett, John Hawthorne, Charles Bissett, and seven others.

Property - [date: 07 JUL 1816] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
A division of the Cole Harbour land holdings of Jean George Bissett was made among his heirs: "whereas the late George Bisset of Cole Harbour having at his death let a lot of undivided land among his heirs and being desirous to put an end to all disputes concerning the sharing thereof have unanimously and mutually agreed to divide said land in the following manner . . .". (James) Frederick received one share, (John) George two shares, Louisa Harris one share. Benjamin and Samuel jointly received the remainder of the land as their shares, being required to grant an easement to each of Frederick and George to be able to get their teams to the water's edge. The deed was witnessed by Thomas Conrod.
It should be noted that neither Joseph Frederick nor George Frederick received any share, although both were certainly living.

Property - [date: 01 JUL 1846] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
John George ceded a piece of disputed land to Samuel in exchange for Samuel's creation of a permanent easement for access by John George's son, Charles, in the form of a road that is to be maintained by Samuel and open to all citizens.

He was belatedly appointed Administrator of his father's estate long after his father's death. This appointment was one week after he apparently attempted to file the probate documents, possibly based on an early probate action whose initiation had been published in 1797, but not completed. The Administrator appointment order called for a full estate inventory by 20 Jan 1809 and final disposition of assets by 20 April 1810. The asset portion of the inventory papers, signed by Joseph Giles et al., are dated 8 January 1809. The debit portion, which was sworn before John Gammon, appears to be the same as the 15 Oct 1808 filing. It should be noted that the debit accounting for the estate begins in Oct 1788 and includes miscellaneous entries from 1794 through 1796 for payments made by George, James Frederick, and Samuel Bissett.

She and her children accompanied her husband on his last voyage on his barque Laura. Off the coast of South America, Capt.

Using her husband's firearms, Agnes and the cook quelled the mutiny. When the calm broke, Agnes then took charge of the navigation and returned the ship safely to New York.

In his "Louisa's World", which is an extract from an 1814 diary of a woman living in Dartmouth, Dale McClare identifies a Mrs. David Frost as the former Miss Sarah Harper, daughter of George Harper and Catharine Bissett. "Religious Marriages in Halifax" shows that the Frosts were married on 15 Jan 1811 at Saint Paul's and that Sarah had not been previously married. This date essentially narrows the possibilities from among the known Bissetts of her mother's identity to the eldest child of Jean George Bisset, Anna Catharine born in 1756, and Louisa Catharine born in 1766. But Louisa Catharine is identified in the 1816 family estate settlement as Mrs. Harris.

The registration records appear to show three children in attendance: Mary, age 9; Agnes age 7; and Sarah, age 5. Mary and Sarah are almost certainly children of Edward and Agnes. The entry for young Agnes lies between them, implying that she too is their child. This hypothesis is strengthened by the reference to Sarah as the "third daughter" in Sarah's marriage notice. No other record, other than a similar Oct 1846 pupil record, is known for this Agnes.

father: Bisset, John George (b1762 - 1847)
mother: Boutelier, Judith (*1761 - )
this Elizabeth Bissett is placed as the daughter of these parents primarily because of the lack of a better alternative. The reference to her as "daughter of a wealthy merchant of Halifax" almost surely identifies her as one of the Nova Scotia Bissetts. Yet, there is no other record on such an Elizabeth and the date of her marriage narrows her possible parents to a few - all of whom are highly unlikely except for this pair, who themselves are somewhat speculative. Her marriage date also makes it attractive to assume that she was a sibling of the James Bisset married in 1814, especially since there are no other Bissett marriages in this period.

Marriage Note

There is no documented reason why this second marriage took place between these same individuals. It suggests, however, that George Frederick Bissett's English wife may have been left behind in England when he returned to Nova Scotia after leaving the Navy. Sometime after the earlier marriage to Mary Ann Maddox, it may have been discovered that his first wife was still alive - thus requiring a second marriage after he could prove her death. Supporting this hypothesis is the fact that George Frederick is listed as a "widower" in this marriage record.

Census - [date: 30 MAR 1861] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

This is likely the household shown as headed by John Bissett and having a total of one m (40-50), one f (40-50), two f (10-15), one m (10-15), and one f (5 -10). The record also indicates that one m (3-4) died in the past year.

Census - [date: 1880] [place: Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts]

Although this census entry has some problems, the identification with this family is firm. Strongly supporting the identification is the fact that his children, Jennie and (Freeman) Joseph, have been identified in the same census as living in Boston in the next household. The entry, however, shows a John Bissett, age 68; his wife Jane, age 54; and daughter Eunice, age 16; all born in Nova Scotia. John and Jane's ages are wrong by at least five years, in opposite directions. This may be due at least partially to an error in the transcription from the original - but an error of this magnitude cannot be ruled out in a census record. The name of the daughter is not clear. It may be Eunice, but if so the age given, 16, doesn't correspond to the Eunice on the immigration list.

Martha is almost certainly the nine year old daughter claimed by George Frederick Bissett in his 1817 petition for a land grant. Martha's husband (and apparent first cousin), George Edward Bissett, states in his later application to be appointed executor of George Frederick's estate that Martha was GF's only daughter and implies that there are no other children living.

There are several interesting and confusing aspects to his will. Note that "Pheaby" and "Caroline" appear to be listed in the will as two distinct daughters - although I have only a "Phebe Caroline" in my file. Perhaps the comma in the will between Pheaby and Caroline is a typo in the original will or perhaps it is I who have mistakenly condensed two of them into one. Assuming that the daughters are listed in the will in birth order, however, there isn't much room between births in that period to squeeze in both a Phebe and a Caroline. It is natural to assume that any of Samuel's children not mentioned in the will have already died. I have a death record on daughter Sophia of 21 Jul 1851, but that still leaves Samuel Jr., Mark, and Mary Matheson as not explicitly accounted for. Maddeningly, the will is dated "Nov. 6th" - but without a year. A year "1857" has been written above that date - but in a different hand. This year seems to be contradicted by the fact that the will is shown to have been "Proved" (on the oath of John McNab, one of the witnesses) on 1 July 1854 - an event which had to have occurred after the will was written. Since the will does not mention Samuel's wife, it most surely was written some time after Rachel's death on 31 Jan 1850. This would put Samuel's death sometime just prior to 1 July 1854.

Will - [date: 06 NOV 1853] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

The year is somewhat speculative since the will is dated only by the month and day, with the year being omitted. The will provides that all his real estate passes to his sons, Joseph and William, on the condition that they 1) maintain and support daughters Catherine, Pheaby, Caroline, and Francis until they marry; 2) pay to son Stephen five pounds one year after Samuel's death and again two years after the death; 3) pay to son Josiah ten pounds two years after Samuel's death; 4) pay to sons Martin and Henry Mathew five pounds two years after Samuel's death; 5) If either Joseph and/or William should pre-decease Samuel, Stephen will get their share(s) - subject to the same conditions

father: Bissett, Joseph A. (b1810 - 1885)
mother: Conrod, Elizabeth (~1809 - 1870)
The birth year in the baptism record appears to be "1830", but I believe that this is a mis-reading of an older-style and poorly written "1836". The most convincing evidence of this is that his bother, Joseph Michael, was baptised in 1833 at age one. It would be most unusual if Thomas Walter, who would have been three years old in 1833 were he born in 1830, had not been baptised at the same time.
The 1830 date, however, Is consistent with his entry in the 1871 census. On the other hand, 1836 does correspond to his father's entry in the 1838 census. This 1836 date is also consistent with his death record and his record as a school pupil and avoids the problem of his been born so far in advance of his parents' wedding.

He is also shown to have gotten about 600 livres for the sale of his possessions, taking 300 livres with him and leaving the rest to discharge his debts.

Leonore is recorded as buried at St. Paul's on 1/3/1753 and Claudine on 3/13/1753. The burial records also shown a second burial on 3/13/1753 - a 'Lesmore Bizet'. I tend to believe that this is a mis-transcription of 'Leonore' and reflects that she was reburied with her sister. There is no record of any family member with a similar name or of any other family member accompanying them on the Betty.

Others have stated that he had seven additional sons: Alexander Samuel, Edward, George, Henry, Nathaniel, Stephan, and Charles. This would seem to be highly unlikely. There is an 1789 document from Saint John's Church in Lunenberg, giving the Bissett baptisms performed there and none of the above appear on this list. All of the known children born prior to 1772 do appear on this list. In addition, the known children already total ten in 1781 and twelve in 1786, in agreement with the numbers given in the land grant petitions. There was an Alexander Bissett noted in the Carleton Papers as the Master of the ship 'Thomas' in New York City on 1 May 1783, just before the sailing of the 'Spring Fleet' to Nova Scotia with the Loyalist refugees. If this Alexander were a child of Jean George, he almost certainly would have appeared in the Lunenberg baptism list.

Occupation -
Farmer

Property - [date: AFT 1754] [place: Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]
He received a homestead plot, #B44, in the "Northwest Range".

Property - [date: 20 SEP 1784] [place: Preston, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
Obtained a land grant at Preston in 1784 (200 acres) as part of the Theophilus Chamberlain township grant. This grant is identified in the Jan 1809 inventory of his estate and valued at just £2. This grant was later escheated in 1815 for failure to pay taxes.

Property - [date: FEB 1786] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
Bissett and Harper applied for a grant of 1,100 acres in Cole Harbour in late 1785 or early 1786. The grant was approved for survey in February 1786, with the survey certified on March 13, 1786. The grant was approved on 19 March 1786 and issued on 6 Apr 1786. They were granted 600 acres, only 200 of which were designated for Harper. In the application George Bissett claims to have been farming the land with George Harper on license from Governor Hughes since 1781 and to have seven sons and five daughters. This grant is identified in the Jan 1809 inventory of George Bissett's estate and valued at £40.

Immigration - [date: 23 JUL 1752] [place: Halifax, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

He arrived on the "Betty" with parents, but is shown in his own listing as a single male, 17 years old. He actually was 14 1/2, but probably mis-represented his age to gain a personal entitlement to a promised homestead grant.

Census - [date: 01 JAN 1770] [place: Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]

He is identified as "George Bizet, Junior". There is one adult male, one adult female, three boys and three girls. All are identified as Protestant. The adults are "German and Other Foreigners" and children American. The household possessed two oxen, one cow, one young meat cattle, and one swine.

Event Event-Note - [date: 10 MAY 1786] [place: Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, Halifax, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

He brought suit for £20 against his son-in-law, Isaac Martin, for failure to repay a promissory note. He was awarded £13 s15 plus costs of £1 s14 d6 on the second Tuesday of July 1786. A warrent was issued on 25 July 1786 for the seizure of the assets of Isaac Martin on his failure to pay.

Event Event-Note - [date: 09 DEC 1771] [place: Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]

In a 1773 letter to George Biset, DesBarres cites the agreement on rents made between them on 9 Dec 1771. (This agreement was apparently signed before their move to Tatamagouch as two of his daughters appear as godmothers in the Lunenburg records up to April 1772). In his response, DesBarres refers to a request from Bisit for additional land "in behalf of James Biset" and three others. If the earlier son James had died, this would correspond to his sons living at the time: James Frederick, Joseph Frederick, George Frederick, and John George. DesBarres granted Bisit 180 acres "in the neighborhood of the Chappel".

Event Event-Note - [date: DEC 1753] [place: Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]

He is recorded as a Private in the local "Indian Patrol"

Name Note

Name is shown on Brevilliers birth register as 'Bizes'.

Death Note

The usual date given for his death is 23 Nov 1797, when an initial Notice of Probate was published. This, however, appears to have been filed many years after his death. A new probate action restarted on 20 Oct 1808 when an Administrator was appointed. The inventory of payments from the estate filed in this new action, begins with payments made in October 1788 - implying that this was his date of death or soon thereafter.

d. 18 OCT 1976 in Chelsea, Massachusetts

father: Bland, Charles E. (1870 - ~1933)
mother: Bissett, Elizabeth J. (1874 - 1929)
I am not absolutely positive that Charles E. Bland of Williamstown was Marjorie's father. Although the available evidence tends to point in that direction, there is enough ambiguity and contrary evidence to raise serious doubts. On the positive side, Sandra Letton has Marjorie's birth record which shows Charles Bland as her father. In addition, I've found that Marjorie appears in both the 1900 and 1910 censuses in his household as Marjorie Bland, along with her mother Elizabeth and her Bland siblings. Finally, my wife's uncle (Eugene Sampson), who is still alive, was a first cousin to the Bland children through his Bissett side and he remembers there being a Marjorie among them - although he only has a clear memory of meeting Olive, Marjorie's much younger sister, who was nearer Gene's age. On the other side, I am aware (through Sandra Letton again) that Marjorie's marriage certificate for her marriage to Charles Joseph Monahan shows her father as "George Lewis". The 1900 census does show a George L. Lewis, age 36 (which puts him about ten years older than Elizabeth Bissett), boarding at a house on Linden Street in Williamstown. In addition, although Marjorie was born after Charles Bland and Elizabeth Bissett had married, the marriage was less than three months before Marjorie's birth. In most cases when a birth occurs so close to a marriage, the husband most likely was the biological father - although this is not always the case. Then there is the matter of "Race or Color". On all the documents that I have found for Charles E. Bland and Elizabeth Bissett (including the 1900, 1910 and 1920 censuses), he is described as "black" and she as "white". According to Sandra Letton, Marjorie's birth record lists her as "mulatto". In the 1900 census, all of the children in the Bland household, including Marjorie, are shown without any entry under the "Race or Color" column (the only such entries on the page). In the 1910 census, all the children, except Marjorie, are shown as "mulatto"; Marjorie is shown as "white". The 1920 census, which no longer had Marjorie in the Bland household, shows half the remaining Bland children as "mulatto" and half as "white". Apparently, the later census takers was recording "color" more than "race", thus implying that some of the children looked "white". In fact, Marjorie's marriage record lists her as "white". I cannot give any definitive explanation for these ambiguities, but I have suspected that it might be related to the fact that, several years prior to her marriage to Monahan, Marjorie had given birth to a daughter named Bernadette. The name of Bernadette's father is not known and, according to Sandy, her birth record is sealed. I thought it might be possible that Lewis might have been the surname of Bernadette's father and, either by confusion or design, was entered as Marjorie's father on the marriage certificate. It is also possible that Marjorie may have conciously lied regarding her parentage. Perhaps, at the time of her marriage to Monahan, Marjorie simply wanted to disguise the fact that she was the daughter of Charles Bland.

Shows her as being between 20 to 30 and with two female children, both under the age of five.

Event Note -

There are a set of letters in the Dartmouth Museum from her to her in-laws from just after her husband death. Much of the information regarding her and her family come from these letters. She mentions that she has a childless wealthy brother in London and another, married and with a large family, working at a 'lucrative situation' in the Customs House in Dublin. She also mentions that she has never seen any of her in-laws. She appears from her letters to have been well educated. In support of this is her statement that she 'had accepted an engagement with a Planter's family . . . to prepare two little boys for college.' Her last known letter was written to her sister-in-law, Agnes, on 19 October 1833. In it, she politely turns down an offer to come to live with them in Cole Harbour. Even though her circumstances sound dire, she says that she can not go 'without the means of defraying my expenses'. The 'History of Edwards County' (Illinois), where her daughter, Georgina, ultimately settled, states that Mary Catherine moved to Nacogdoches, Texas, where she received a land grant from the Republic of Texas for 640 acres on 3 August 1839.

Nancy Kaye cites a report of his baptism in 1814 'at eighteen months' at Saint George's Anglican Church in Halifax. Teal shows birth date as 1822. I have assumed that this is the same Jacob Conrod who is shown as 60 years old and living next to the Bissetts in Cole Harbour in the 1871 census.

Christening - [date: 13 JAN 1772] [place: Dutch Reformed Church, Lunenburg, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada]

Event Note -

It is somewhat speculative that this Johannnes Conrod is the husband of Catherine Halter and the father of her children. The strongest argument in its favor is that the family of Susan Elizabeth Conrod is said to have lived in Lawrencetown at the time of her marriage in 1840. This is consistent with the early presence of the children of Jacob Conrod in the area and somewhat before the known presence of other Conrod families.

Conrod, John Stewart (1818 - ) - male
b. 18 FEB 1818 in Lawrencetown, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

father: Conrod, Thomas (1782 - 1858)
mother: McManamy, Cecily (~1790 - 1858)
It is not completely certain that the wife and family attributed to John Stuart Conrod, son of Thomas Conrod, might not actually be that of his cousin John, son of Jacob Conrod - or perhaps even to another John. Although the documentary evidence seems to support that it is John Stuart Conrod (e.g. "John S. Conrod" named as the father in the children's baptismal records and Lawrencetown given as the residences), there are some lingering doubts.  As shown in Thomas' 1858 will, John was considered incapable of caring for himself and thus would seem not likely to ever marry.
One should also note, that there may have been another, unrelated, Conrad family living in Lawrencetown at the time.

Will - [date: 14 FEB 1858] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]

The will is especially significant in that it is the only known source document that identifies "Elizabeth, wife of Joseph Bissett of Sydney Cape Breton" as his daughter. She is left £15 to purchase mourning clothes. The land and the bulk of the estate is left to sons Joseph and Charles. They are obligated to provide "all necessary board, lodging, clothing, and medical attendance during his life" to their brother John, who was evidently disabled and unable to care for himself. The three unmarried daughters (Rosannah, Mary, and Rebecca) were left £50, £45, and £40 respectively - to be paid in 3, 5, and 7 years respectively. These unmarried daughters were also given one cow and two sheep each and the right to live in the family house and be maintained by Joseph and Charles until their marriage. Sons Thomas, William, James, and Jacob are left nothing because "they are already sufficiently provided for". Joseph, Charles, and Rosanna are named executors. Stephan Bissett and Alex James were two of the witnesses

Birth Note

Calculated from age given, 53 years, at the time of Jeanne Dorau's birth.
spouse:
----------child: Dorau, Marie (1789 - )
Dorau, Jeanne (1811 - 1894) - female
b. 24 APR 1811 in Anglet, Bayonne North-West, Basse Pyrenee, France
d. 08 OCT 1894 in D'Escousse, Richmond, Nova Scotia, Canada

father: Jeanne, ?? (*1781 - )
mother: Dorau, Marie (1789 - )
According to the autobiography of her great-grandaughter (Emma Bissett), Jeanne ran off with a Captain Pertus, perhaps an early beau - taking her daughter, Melanie, but leaving her husband and older boy behind. She is also said never to have married Pertus. Records in Saint-Louis, Senegal, confirm that Jeanne had two children while married to Jean Bareste: Urbain and Melanie, although the birth record of Melanie clearly implies that Jean Bareste was not the father of Melanie. It has been suggested that the person reporting the birth, Emanuel Dubois, may be the father. It also is possible that Jean Pertus may be the father. There are no records of any Pertus marriage in Senegal - or anywhere else, for that matter.The Pertus family settled at Cascaret Island near River Bourgeois about 1843. According to census records, the eldest Pertus boy was born in Charlestown, South Carolina, just prior to that. (Tradition in the family of Emma Bissett, on the other hand, holds that they lived for a time in New Orleans, not Charlestown.)

Burial - [date: 10 OCT 1894] [place: Saint Hyacinth's Church, D'Escousse, Richmond, Nova Scotia, Canada]

Event Event-Note - [date: 18 JUN 1885] [place: Barque "Jennie Cashman", Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts]

Jeanne is likely the same person identified as 'Madame Bareste', age 74, resident of Nova Scotia, who is shown arriving in Boston, Massachusetts on June 18, 1885 on the S.S. Bargue Jennie Cashman sailing from Sierra Leone, Africa. This was a small freighter carrying only one other passenger (not John Pertus) other than Madame Bareste.

Birth Note

Jeanne Dorau's marriage record, by omitting any reference to her father, suggests that she is illegitimate. Her birth place (Anglet, France) and date (24 Apr 1811) are given in the marriage record.The civil index to births there shows that in the whole month of April 1811 only one female child was born: a Jeanne Jeanne on 11 Apr 1811. ("Jeanne" is a proper surname that does appear in several other birth records and one death record in that same period.) The full record shows that the mother of the child was Marie Dorau and that the birth was reported by her father. It also explicitly shows the birth to be illegitimate. No father is named.

As contained in a footnote of the Vinton's 1864 Giles Memorial Genealogy: "The account which is given of this family was received from Mrs. Louisa Gillespie of Salem. She also says that her grandfather's name was Joseph Henry Giles; that he was tall and thin; he had a sash and tassel, a high cap with a waving plume, and, she thinks, a long sword, all of which he used to exhibit as worn by him in the Revolutionary War; and she says he was in the battle of Bunker Hill, and, as I understood, fought on the side of liberty. He was from Roxbury, or Salem. I am not sure of the identity of the grandfather of Mrs. Gillespie, with Henry Giles, . . . but consider it probable. " Vinton is wrong in his identification with the Henry Giles, who he shows to have been born in 1753 and been in the American artillery in the Revolution. Vinton may also have "seeded" the possibility in the mind of Mrs. Gillespie that her grandfather had been on the American side. Other research shows that he was a loyalist.

There is no death record for this Anne Catherine in the Brevelliers' records. The estimate of her death date is derived from the subsequent birth of an identically named child to her parents.

She may have died en route to Rotterdam with the family of her mother and step-father. The Brevilliers' exit-lists show the Bizets as leaving with three daughters, yet the passenger list from Rotterdam show them as sailing with just two daughters. These two daughters are accounted for in Nova Scotia. The most likely "third daughter" would be Catherine Elizabeth, who was 17 years old and possibly not yet married.

Death Note

She likely died enroute to the port of Rotterdam, while accompanting her mother and step-father to Nova Scotia.

Hanlon, Mary (1907 - ) - female
b. 1907 in Massachusetts

mother: Bissett, Melanie Josephine (1879 - >1959)
It is not clear that this Mary Hanlon is the daughter of Charles Edward Harrington and/or Melanie Josephine Bissett. She only appears in the census of 1901 and is shown as a boarder in the house of Victoria Tochette - along with Edward Harrington (age 12), Theodore Harrington (age 7) and Irma Hanlon (age 5) There is no obvious explanation as to why the children are boarding there or why Irma is shown with the surname Hanlon.

Harper, George (*1754 - ) - male
In his petition for the land grant, George Harper says he has a wife, two daughters, and two sons

The Grace Harper who married John Maskell at Saint Paul's in Halifax on 13 Dec 1817 might be a daughter of George Harper and Catherine Bissett. If so, she likely was born about 1795

Property - [date: FEB 1786] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
Bissett and Harper applied for a grant of 1,100 acres in Cole Harbour in late 1785 or early 1786. The grant was approved for survey in February 1786, with the survey certified on March 13, 1786. The grant was approved on 19 March 1786 and issued on 6 Apr 1786. They were granted 600 acres, only 200 of which were designated for Harper. In the application George Bissett claims to have been farming the land with George Harper on license from Governor Hughes since 1781 and to have seven sons and five daughters. This grant is identified in the Jan 1809 inventory of George Bissett's estate and valued at £40.

Property - [date: 16 NOV 1796] [place: Cole Harbour, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
He sold his 200 acres in Cole Harbour, part of the original Bissett - Harper grant of 1786, to John Sewell of Halifax for £125

No record of Jean Jeain or his wife, Johanna, has been found in Saint Marie, Montbeliard, prior to 1671. In particular, there are no birth records for the sons, Pierre and Germain, who were married in Saint Marie, Montbeliard, in 1688 and 1689. In addition, there are no records of any other Jeain family in Montbeliard at that time. One is left with the impression that Jean and Johanna arrived in Montbeliard about 1670.

spouse: Bissett, George Frederick (b1769 - 1834)
- m. 14 FEB 1823 in Christ Church, Dartmouth, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Marriage Note

There is no documented reason why this second marriage took place between these same individuals. It suggests, however, that George Frederick Bissett's English wife may have been left behind in England when he returned to Nova Scotia after leaving the Navy. Sometime after the earlier marriage to Mary Ann Maddox, it may have been discovered that his first wife was still alive - thus requiring a second marriage after he could prove her death. Supporting this hypothesis is the fact that George Frederick is listed as a "widower" in this marriage record.

Donald Matheson deposited $6,000 in the People's Bank of Halifax in the name of his wife as her bequest (plus interest) from her father's 1861 will. This $6,000 was calculated as the equivalent of the £2,000 full bequest, less the subtraction of the £851-16-9 unpaid debt of Matheson to the GEB estate and plus accumulated interest of £675-14-3 from 1861 thru 1870. Matheson, however, soon thereafter declared bankrupcy and his creditors sued to get the $6,000. The court decided that the creditors were only entitled to the accumulated interest and that the remainder was Mrs. Matheson's

McGrath, Mary Ann (<1829 - ) - female
b. BEF 1829 in Nova Scotia, Canada
The identification of Mary Ann McGrath and the various conclusions regarding her marriages and children are for the most part based on indirect evidence and plausible speculation. The starting point is the 1880 census that can be used to identify her as the widow of Samuel Bissett and the grandmother of Elmer Kuhn and Elaine Butler. Kuhn asserts that this widow of Stephen Bissett had previously been married to Samuel Wambolt and was the mother of the Melissa Wambolt who had married Alexander Kuhn and bore him the son, Elmer Kuhn. Swan has found the marriage of a Mary Ann Wambolt to Frederick Butler. These suggest the possibility that Mary Ann Wambolt and Melissa Wambolt were the two female children living with Stephen Bissett and his wife in the 1861 census.

Residence - [date: 1887] [place: Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota]

She appears on her own without mention of her husband in the City Directory

Census - [date: 1880] [place: Minneapolis, Hennepin, Minnesota]

Shows her as a widow running a boarding house and identifies Elmer Kuhn and Elaine Butler as her grandchildren.

Birth Note

Her age as given in the 1880 census gives a birth year of 1839, but this is inconsistent with the hypothesis that she is the mother of Melissa Wambolt. The 1861 census puts it between 1821 and 1831.

A Pierre Metin, son of Nicholas Metin married a Marie Catherine Baisnier, daughter of Jean Pierre Baisnier. This is the only Metin encountered in the Montbeliard records. A Montbeliard referrence work cites Metin in Bethoncourt in 1712, in Byans in the 1600s, and in Laire in 1754.

Metin, Judith (~1738 - ) - female
b. ABT 1738 in Montbeliard, Doubs, France

father: Metin, ??? (*1701 - )
A 17 year old brother, Jean Nicholas Metin, is shown in his own entry on the passenger list of the 1752 sailing of the Sally. There are no other entries for any Metins in any of the passenger lists. Bell's notes (at the Public Archives of Nova Scotia), however, show both a Jean Nicholas and Judith Metin on the victualling lists in Halifax. The only evidence for a sister to Judith being present is Bell's hypothesis that the surname of the bride (Anna Judith) in an 1757 marriage of Jean Nicholas Boutelier should read 'Metin', rather than 'Mehr' , as it appears to have been originally recorded. 'Planters and Pioneers' is said to show Judith and a sister, Anna Judith, arriving on the Sally in 1752, although their parents are not shown on the passenger list. It is likely that this source is based upon Bell's notes. An analysis of the passenger list for the 1752 Sally suggests that Judith (and her sister, if she had one) may have traveled with the family of Jacques Boutilier.

Her name is shown in the Brevilliers' records most often as Metthey, but also as Metthe and Mettey. Her birth record is in sequence for January 1703, but the recorded date shows a '3' over-written by a '4'. This may have been the result of the 'official' record actually having been copied from an earlier draft copy

mother: Street, Sarah (~1790 - 1872)
The evidence regarding her date of birth is very inconsistent. The 1881 census shows her age as 51, implying a birth year of 1829/30. The transcription of her marriage record shows the date of marriage to be 9 Jun 1832, implying a much earlier birth date - 1812 or so at the latest. The ages of her children as shown in the 1881 census (22, 20 and 13) would, however, roughly limit an estimate of her birth date to the range 1823 to 1838. Since her sister Caroline (born ~ 1819) is identified as the "third daughter" and we know that Eleanor and Mary Louise were born earlier, this Ann Catherine must be a later child. Assuming that the ages of the children in the 1838 census were correctly known by the census taker, that census has room for her only if she were 14 years or older - implying a birth year before mid-1824. In this regard, it is more likely that the age of Sarah was underestimated by a year or so; thus leaving room for Ann Catherine to be one of the females under 14. Weighing all this, it would seem as though the marriage date is grossly in error - perhaps it is a mis-transcription of 1852, rather than 1832? An estimate for her birth date of about 1829 causes the least problems

If we assume, as is likely, that the age of daughter Sarah Elizabeth was slightly underestimated by the census-taker, we can bracket the birth dates of several unknown children. That 1838 census, coupled with the baptism record of Mary Louise (which identifies her as the sixth child) and the marriage record of Caroline (which identifies her as the third daughter), implies that: 1) one additional son was born before 1817 and he was no longer living in the household; 2) one additional daughter was born between 1819 and 1824 and was living in the household; 3) another additional daughter was born between 1824 and 1832 and was living in the household; and 4) two more daughters were born after 1832 and were living in the household.

The 1827 census counts four additional members of the family living in the household - three unknown females and one male.

Several "speculative" children have been deduced and included among his children. Their existence is based, inter alia, on the 1827 and 1838 censuses of his household (q.v.). Note that either the unknown female born about 1827 or Eleanor would have to have died before 1838 to be consistent with that census

Müller, Tobias E. (1750 - 1813) - male
b. 1750 in Fulda, Hesse, Germany
d. 24 APR 1813 in Preston, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
He was among the Hessian mercenaries who fought on the side of Great Britain in the America Revolution. His unit was the Hesse-Kassel Chasseurs, which were formed in April 1777. They were transported to America in a convoy which departed Portsmouth on 7 Apr 1777. They arrived in New York on 3 June 1777 as reinforcements to the Hessian units that had taken part in Howe's invasion of New York City in 1776. They took up garrison duty in the captured city, fighting in various small battles in the vicinity. They sailed from New York on 26 Dec 1779 as part of Cornwallis' Southern Campaign, arriving at Edisto Inlet, about 30 miles south of Charlestown, South Carolina, on 11 Feb 1780.
HETRINA, an index to the records of the Hessian troops in America, shows four entries for a Tobias Müller, born in Fulda. The index shows him as appearing in the records of the Jäger Korps as a deserter in February 1780 and in June 1780. He is also shown there as sentenced to execution in June 1780 and as returning from captivity in November 1780. Finally, he is shown as having been discharged 'in America' from the Knyphausen Regiment in February 1782. Examination of the Regimental records themselves corrects the date of his discharge to February 1781. The entry in the regimental records for that month show: 'The former Corporal Tobias Müller born at Fulda, age 30 Y., with 4 1/2 Y. service, has been discharged with the permission of the General Lieutn. von Knyphausen on 18 Feb. 1781. He had deserted in June 1780 to French service, and from there he did come back, which demonstrated some character wherein some trust could be assessed.' Sometime in 1781, he joined the South Carolina Loyalist Regiment as an "Ensign" and served with them to the end of the war. This is supported by the entry in the muster roll of the South Carolina Loyalist Regiment which describes him as a former Hessian soldier. The fact that this was the Tobias Miller who came to Nova Scotia is then supported by the fact that the will of his wife, "Margaret Miller of Halifax" is described as "relict of Tobias Miller, Ensign in Regiment of South Carolina Loyalists . . . ".

Property - [date: 20 SEP 1784] [place: Preston, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
He received a 500 acre grant as part of Theophilus Chamberlain's township grant.

Property - [date: 02 OCT 1806] [place: Preston, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
A grant was given to "Tobias Miller of Preston, a Loyalist, one hundred and ten acres of land . . . being land purchased by the government for the Maroons and afterwards sold on account of the government and purchased by said Tobias Miller . . ."

Property - [date: 16 NOV 1796] [place: Preston, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada]
He purchased from Theo. Chamberlain a six acre lot, identified as W2H, for £3
