    Marlene Hickman notes (25 May, 2007):

    "According to a recent book published by Tantramar Heritage Trust and compiled by Dale E Alward entitled "Down Sackville Ways - Shipbuilding in a Nineteenth Century New Brunswick Outport", Joseph Hickman owned at least eight shares in the following vessels built in Sackville:"

    "1845 - "Dorchester" - schooner - 42 tons - built by Christopher Boultenhouse - owners listed were Martin Bulmer, Gideon Palmer, Joseph Hickman, Dorchester."

    "1872 - "E. Chambers" - schooner - 215 tons - built by Alfred D Cole - Albert J Smith, Dorchester; Abner Smith, Sackville (4 shares); Joseph Hickman, Dorchester; Joseph A Read, Sackville."

    "1873 "Riberia" - brigantine - 299 tons - built by Alfred D Cole - Joseph L Black, Oliver Barnes, Richard C Boxall, Sackville; Robert McKay, Moncton; Joseph Hickman, Dorchester."

    "These would be in addition to the following:

    November 24, 1870 - Chignecto Post

    "Seized - The schr "Rosebud" Capt E Palmer, Master, was seized at Dorchester on Monday morning last on her arrival from Boston for some pervious infraction of the revenue law.  She was laden with goods for Sackville and Moncton.  Permission was obtained to bring her here (Sackville?) to discharge and she arrived at this port yesterday.  She is owned by Messrs Gideon Palmer, Joseph Hickman, A J Smith, Alex Robb and Capt E Palmer, Dorchester, and John Bell of Sackville."

    As well his will listed shares in the following vessels at the time of his death in 1889 -

    "Bessie May" - 4/64 shares   &  "Sarah Chandler" - 2/64 shares.

    Marlene Hickman notes:

    "Joseph probably had shares in vessels but Wm was the builder."

    "Joseph was also a politician with his older brother John."

    "From what I understand The Sessions was a form of County Council government with presentation from each of the parishes in the County, representatives chosen by ballot of the male residents."

    Charlie Hickman notes:

    "...a prosperous merchant - lumberman who built the Hickman Store in 1876 and several other buildings"

    From "Dorchester Island and Related Areas", R. Bowser notes:

    ....Merchant in Dorchester from 1841 - 1881

    "Thursday, March 7, 1872 - "A special meeting of the Sessions took place on Thursday in reference to the Court House matter. There were present S. F Black, Chairman, S G Gilbert, W K Chapman, John Hickman, Jos Hickman, J H Brownell and R Lowerson...."

    From August 17, 1876 - Chignecto Post:

    "The new store of Joseph Hickman Esq Dorchester is completed is now occupied by him. It is quite a handsome structure inside and out and affords abundance of room for Mr. Hickman's large business."
