  • Notes 
    • From the Sackville Tribune Post:

      "The first shipload of Yorkshire immigrants to arrive was in 1772 on board the Duke of Yorke which left Liverpool on 16 March with 62 passengers on board, arriving at Fort Cumberland on 21 May 1772. On board were Charles Dixon, Thomas Anderson, George Bulmer, John Trenholm and others."

      From "Chignecto Isthmus; First Settlers", by Howard Trueman:

      "There were three Trenholm brothers in the Yorkshire contingent, Matthew, Edward, and John. Matthew settled at Windsor, Edward at River Francis, in the Upper Provinces, and John at Point de Bute on the Inverma Farm. This farm was probably confiscated to the Crown after Sheriff Allan left the country."

      "Just where Mr. Trenholm lived before he got possession of Inverma I have no information, but as Sheriff Allan had several tenants, it is quite probable that Mr. Trenholm was one of them. John Trenholm's wife was a Miss COATES. They had three sons--John, William, and Robert--and three daughters.

      John married a Miss Foster and settled on a Brook farm at Point de Bute Corner and afterwards built a mill on the Brook. His grandson, Abijah, now owns this part of the property and turns out flour at the old stand. William married a Miss Ryan and owned a large farm in Point de Bute, on the north-west side of the ridge. Robert settled at Cape Tormentine in 1810, and the following table shows the names of his children and grandchildren:

      Children.     Grandchildren.             Children.     Grandchildren.

      Stephen            11                            Abner                6
      John                   5                             Job                    10
      Hannah             10                            Ruth                   12
      William             10                            Thomas             10
      Phoebe            11                            Jane                   8
      Robert              10                            Benjamin           9


      "Hiram and Abijah and their families are now the only descendants of the name living in Point de Bute."

      "The Trenholms were quiet, industrious men, very neat about their work, and made successful farmers."

      Stephen Trendholme notes:

      "Was sheriff at Pointe de Bute, N. Bruns. on the Inverna Farm and had several tenants."

      "The following note taken from Pugwash Historical society Trenholm file - Source unknown-  It has not been ascertained where Mr. and Mrs. John Trenholm first lived after arrival from Yorkshire but they are first noted as living on the vacated Inverma Farm of 'Rebel John' Allan at Bloody Bridge - now Upper Pte de Bute (Pont a Buot). This would not be before proscribed John Allan fled the country for Maine in 1776. In November of that year, all Inverma's buildings were completely burned by the soldiers who chased out the rebels, so it would be later than that before John Trenholm went there, where there were no buildings to live at first."
