A Record of Seventy Families,
Their Homesteads and Genealogies
1780 - 1980
original text by
Statement from Jim Reid, son of the late author, Jennie Reid
It is with a great sense of pride that Dan, Carolyn and I make our Mother, Jennie Reid's, work of love, "A Record of Seventy Musquodoboit Families", available for publication on the Internet through the Nova Scotia GenWeb site. It was her fondest dream to ensure the information, history and genealogy of the Musquodoboit Valley become available to anyone who was interested in her work.
I can remember the many summer afternoons our family spent searching through the woods and brush; cleaning off old tombstones buried in moss; and reciting the valuable information contained on those stones to Mum who meticulously recorded it. I can remember the many evenings sitting around the dining room table as Dad revealed the great wealth of stories and knowledge he had retained from living his full 80 years in the Valley. I can remember the many interesting people who came to visit looking for information on their forefathers; they picked Mum's brain for knowledge as she did likewise to them. But most of all, I remember the great sense of satisfaction she so often expressed when she was able to see someone walk out our door with a much keener awareness of their family background.
Our family would like to express our sincere gratitude to Carroll Armstrong who encouraged us to put the information online, and also for her work with Lark Szick, Volunteer Co-Ordinator for The Nova Scotia GenWeb Project, in co-ordinating the many volunteers who have given so freely of their time to prepare the book for publication on the Internet.
I can see the smile of satisfaction on Mum's face expressing the accomplishment of her fondest dream.
About This Online Edition of the Book:
Thank you to the Reid family for allowing us to do this project. When I began this project it was my intent that the online edition of the book would remain true to their mother, Jennie Reid's, original text.
This is a transcription of Jennie Reid's original work and any typographical errors were done without intent. An occasional typist's note has been added enclosed within [ ] and initialed by me: "cja", simply to alert the reader that there may be an error or the data could be confusing.
IMPORTANT EXCEPTION Regarding Personal Data: Some dates after the early 1900's, and exact addresses that were published in the original text have been removed from this online edition in order that we might protect the privacy of persons who may still be living. No names have been removed.
Changes from the original will be evident in some pages by the way the material appears on the page - some line breaks and page breaks may vary slightly from the original; this was done to make it easier for the reader to follow the text, or to keep family groups closer together on one page.
ORIGINAL PAGE NUMBERS have been indicated at the END of each page, as in the original.

The McCurdy family, originally from Scotland, reached Nova Scotia by way of Ireland and New England. About 1772 Alexander McCurdy with his wife Jannet, four children and his sister Peggy, settled in Onslow. Their son James married Agnes Archibald in 1788, and it was James Munroe McCurdy, their son, who with his brother Alexander pioneered in Musquodoboit. (A brother Matthew and a sister Sarah also settled in Musquodoboit. See histories of these families. Genealogical numbers 1- 43-2 are concerned with McCurdy ancestors before James came to Musquodoboit.)
43-2 James Munroe (1st son of James & Agnes Archibald McCurdy) was doubtless named after Rev. James Munroe, one of the earliest ministers of Colchester County. In 1813, James and his brother Alexander came from Onslow to Middle Musquodoboit and cleared a field on a 200 acre lot their father had purchased for them. This lot of land made two farms, and was owned and occupied by these two brothers for many years. Subsequently, it was divided again, James’ half went to his two sons, Isaac and Thomas and has since been sold to others. James built his house on the north side of the Brookvale road, was later occupied by his two sons. Isaac died in 1867 and sometime after the house was burned with all its contents. Thomas then built the house occupied by Keith Kingsbury, 1980. Isaac’s family built a small house where the Captain Burris house now stands. This small house later burned and the present house was built by Allen, Isaac’s son about 1884 shortly after. (It is now owned by Thomas Doucette, 1980). Two hundred acres were added to Alexander’s half which went to his two sons, William and J. Watson, and was later owned by a grandson Roy B. McCurdy, and Frank McCurdy, 1980. Alexander built his house on the old road and later when the present road was built in 1847 he moved the house and barn down to the present site.
James md. on Oct. 25, 1814, Margaret (dau. of Alexander & Rebecca Baird Miller). Margaret was a sister of Thomas Miller who wrote the Historical Record of Colchester County. She was born May 24, 1797 and died Oct. 11, 1845. James and Margaret had 8 sons and 4 daus.

Peter Ogilvie Sr. came from Scotland early in the 18th century and settled near Savannah, Georgia. He is said to have had 7 sons and 5 daughters. Two sons came to Nova Scotia.
Peter and John both served in the Revolutionary War and in 1783, along with many other members of the Duke of Cumberland's disbanded forces, sailed on the Loyalist ship "Argo" from St. Augustine, Florida, arriving in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Dec. 13 of the same year. Grants of land awaited them in Guysborough but the Ogilvies did not go there. 1785 saw the Ogilvie brothers in Musquodoboit, where they settled. In his "memorial" for a grant of land dated June, 1790, Peter stated that he had a wife and two children. This land was not granted but he petitioned again in May, 1798 and November of the same year. Peter said that he had been in Musquodoboit for 13 years and now had four children and 2 servants. This petition was granted, finally, March 30, 1814, and his farm was located on the backroad, not far from the Cook's Brook Community Hall (1980), and now owned by Mrs. Ralph Murray, formerly Mrs. Austin Ogilvie.

6-5 John (3rd son of Rev. John & Jane Sprott). He received his medical degree from Glasgow University, returned to N.S. and died at Fort Belcher near Onslow in 1867. He was unmarried. The Rev. John Sprott will always be remembered by the people of the Musquodoboit Valley. His high principles and good works were acclaimed by everybody, even those who differed with him on matters of Church policy. His passion for universal education was largely instrumental in bringing schools to all areas of the community. The life and work of the Rev. John Sprott are beautifully depicted in a "Memorial"volume edited by his son, the Rev. George W. Sprott, D.D. The Musquodoboit Centenary Book (1915) provides a detailed appreciation of the splendid abilities shown in all fields of endeavor by the Rev. John Sprott, a most courageous pioneer.
In 1822 when the Rev. John Sprott was the newly settled minister at Windsor, Rawdon and Newport, with his first wife Sarah Clarke, he prevailed upon his much younger brother James to join him pioneering in the New World. James did so and purchased a farm at Windsor, March 1st, 1822, marrying Lamira Smith of Newport, nearby, the following month. (The Rev. John may perhaps be justly suspected of matchmaking, and had probably chosen an excellent wife for his brother before James left Scotland). James and Lamira had 7 children, but only four are listed by Mrs. James Harvey, Newportt, Hants Co., N.S., who supplied this data.
1. James, (brother of Rev. John Sprott and 4th son of James and Margaret Hannay Sprott).

18-3 Harry died in Waltham.
19-4 Agnes Broughton died in Texas.
20-5 Mary md. Davis Campbell, they had one son Clyde, who
died in Texas.
James Sprott was killed by a falling tree in 1837, and is buried near Newport church. Lamira, his widow, md. 2nd Joseph Allison, a widower, from Limavody, Ireland, whose niece, Jane had married Henry Sprott, Lamira’s son.
Joseph Allison had been a farmer in Ireland, and one day when his table was set with some precious silver spoons, probably for a special occasion, the land agent called and spying these affluent items, promptly raised Joseph’s rent! Enraged by this injustice, Joseph decided to emigrate and with his family settled near his niece at Gaspereaux, Nova Scotia.
His eldest daughter married Colonel Jonathan Crane, and a son, Charles Frederick Allison, founded Mount Allison Academy which began its educational work Jan. 19, 1843. (This news must have been greeted with great joy by the Rev. John Sprott of Musquodoboit.) One might say that Mount Allison University began with a dozen silver spoons; in recent times owned by Mrs. Erroll Mitchell, Halifax.
Captain George Taylor
George Taylor emigrated to Nova Scotia from Farnemney, Scotland, sailing from Glasgow and arriving in Halifax, Oct. 26, 1810. He was born March 30, 1777 and his wife, Helen Simpson was born Sept. 1780. They were married in Aug. 1798 and reared a family of 13 children. (Ref. Allison’s History of Nova Scotia Vol. 3, p. 623) They settled in Chaswood, called Taylorville in early days. A brother of George Taylor, Alexander, settled in Halifax, N.S. where some of his descendants still live. Their sister, Mrs. Lobie, also came and lived in Gay’s River. James M. Taylor settled in Musquodoboit and lived on the Chaswood Meadow.

A Musquodoboit Miscellany
The Past is foreign country, where things are done differently; but the people who live there are my own.
[IMAGE OF DR. HARRISON'S HOUSE MAY BE VIEWED AT]
Middle Musquodoboit, N.S.The residence built by the first resident physician in the
Musquodoboit Valley, Dr. William Harrison.
This house, with other buildings and seven acres of and,
was bought in 1910 by the Agricultural Society. From
that date, the annual Halifax County Exhibition has been
held on this site.
PAGE 730(b) The Agricultural Society
Agricola was pen-name for a Scotsman, John Young. In the year 1818 a series of letters, published in the Acadian Recorder, Halifax, over the signature of “Agricola” at once caught the attention of the public. These letters (38) were subsequently republished in a volume entitled, "The Letters of Agricola". Directly as a result of his writings, the Central Agricultural Society of N.S. which included representatives from every part of the province was organized on Dec. 15, 1818:To AgricolaMusquodoboit, Feb. 2, 1819
It is with pleasure I acknowledge the receipt of yours on the 16th January. To further your general views, a meeting of the inhabitants on this river was held on Monday, the 1st instant, when about 24 attended; several being necessarily hindered and some not having due notice. We however, formed a Society to be called the "Musquodoboit Farmer Society", elected a President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer and a committee of six to frame By-laws, etc. Our Society will at least consist of 50 members, perhaps more, as a desire of improvement begins to prevail here. You highly merit our most grateful acknowledgement for your benevolent intentions, and zealous exertions in awakening the spirit of agriculture throughout the province from her deathlike inactivity. The climate and soil of Nova Scotia are in no respect inferior to those of Britain, and were the same sort of tillage used, would be equally productive. When our By-laws are framed, we shall then open correspondence with the Central Board. I am Sir, with great esteem, yours sincerely.James Benvie
The provincial Agricultural Society of Halifax on Apr. 24, 1819 voted $25 to Musquodoboit "because the association there embraces members living partly in the district of Halifax and partly in Colchester". This money was set aside to provide prizes for the encouragement of husbandry. This was the second agricultural society in the province. Apparently the Society was later divided into Upper and Lower Musquodoboit. Upper Musquodoboit was organized in 1835, in 1865 they had 62 members, subscriptions paid were $62.00, a Government grant of $87.00 was received. They held their first Exhibition in the summer of 1866, and expended $50.00 in prizes. David Archibald was Secretary.
Lower Musquodoboit Agricultural Society was organized in 1854. In March 1868, there were 61 members, fees paid were $61.00 and the government grant was $84.00; the members agreed to devote their funds in 1865 to the purchase of improved breeds of sheep and pigs.
Copy of Minutes April 1865
Total receipts for year included subscriptions, Provincial grant, balance on hand and sale of stock $395.23 expenses $193.48 balance $201.75. Last season has been an unusually dry one, the hay crop is less than the average but of the very best quality. Oats and wheat less than average in quantity, but of good quality. Potatoes more than average and keeping sound in the cellars, turnips a light crop. In this part of the country raising stock is our main dependence. Our river for over 30 miles abounds with hay, much of it is taken off year after year without manure. We need very much an improved breed of cattle. When there is stock imported into the province we are not able to able to compete with the wealthy farmers about Halifax or Windsor. If some of the improved breeds were sent to this settlement it would be a great benefit to it: they might not bring the high prices they would in other parts, but we think it would be a more general benefit, with a population of 2000 persons, mostly farmers and two Agricultural Societies in a flourishing state. This Society has been a great benefit to the settlement and we trust with the new Agricultural Act and increased Provincial aid, it may do more than it ever has done.Robert A. Logan President
C.N. Sprott Secretary
The early Exhibitions were held in the vicinity of Jimmie Reid's store and residence (1880) and meals were served in the old Drill Hall, nearby.
In June 1886 they resolved to hold an agricultural show in October. $80.00 was voted to be given in prize money.
The Herald, Sat., Oct. 9, 1886
Musquodoboit, October 6, 1886. A very interesting meeting took place this evening in temperance hall. Addresses were delivered by N.W. Smith, B. Sc., lecturer in natural science, Normal School, and others. The proceedings were interspersed with music, furnished by the choral glee club of Middle Musquodoboit. The chair was occupied by C.T. Sprott, chairman of the executive committee.
Prof. Smith first addressed the meeting. He paid a very high compliment to the managing committee of the exhibition for the success of the show. He referred to the school of agriculture in connection with the Normal School, where farmers’ sons can obtain a good education, fitting them for their special calling. He then spoke at length on the care of stock. Farmers in general are careful of their horses, but too often allow their cattle to look after themselves.
Pure water and good food are essential to produce a healthy animal. A cow is a sensible animal, because she drinks water. She wants it pure. Food is necessary, not only to produce beef and milk, but also to generate animal heat. The food of the animal is produced from the soil. Constant feeding exhausts the soil of its three essentials nitrogen, potash, and phosphoric acid. These must be supplied, but cannot be done by buying artificial fertilizers.
Dr. Lawson thanked the people of Musquodoboit for getting up this exhibition in order to afford him an opportunity of visiting this beautiful valley. Musquodoboit is the agricultural centre of Halifax county. He wished to make a few remarks in a general way about the exhibition and the country. As he passed over the country between Musquodoboit and Shubenacadie he was struck with the vastness of the room for improvement. Today the people of this district had come to the front and thus made a great advance in the way of improvement. Exhibitions are the agricultural barometers of a country. There are few countries in which agriculture is properly carried on. An eminent agriculturist had said to the people of France that it would be well to import Chinese to teach them agriculture. We, however, have better teachers than the Chinese in the school of agriculture in Truro. He urged the farmers to send their sons to this school. The proper place for learning the practical work of farming is on the farm itself. Ploughing matches are valuable for this purpose. The exhibition of today will be of great use to the people of this district if they only persevere. He gave some useful hints in regard to conducting future exhibitions. While the exhibition was very creditable to the people of Musquodoboit there is room for improvement.
He noticed large tracts of country left uncultivated. There is too little work done on the farms. We want to grow crops that will give employment all the year round. The crops, as seen in the exhibition, are nice samples of grain but too little only four exhibits of barley. Why not more? There were 13 exhibits of wheat, but not properly named. Exhibitions will improve this. The show of timothy seed was highly creditable, better than usually seen at exhibitions. He was glad to see sixteen fine samples of peas. Peas suit our climate admirably and should be largely grown here. The one great deficiency of the exhibition is want of variety. The exhibit of onions was splendid but should be larger. The secret of growing onions is to make the ground solid. The show of pumpkins and squashes was simply tremendous. The 60 tubs and dishes of butter were not shown to advantage. A very nice exhibit of ornamental plants a credit to the ladies. More plants should be grown to make our homes attractive. The exhibit of homespun was an interesting exhibit after a long drive on a cold day. The show of cattle was good but should have been better; there should have been more thoroughbreds. The show in sheep was far too small. In agricultural implements the only exhibits were a non-freezing pump, a dog churn and a straw cutter. This class has evidently been overlooked. Manufacturers of these implements would be glad to send their manufactures if notified. These remarks were made not in a spirit of criticism but by way of giving a few hints for the future, and he hoped all would take what he said in good part.
The Hon. Provincial Secretary thought he had good cause for an action for damages against the person who circulated the report that he was to speak after delivering the opening address. The meeting so far had been a success in combining scientific knowledge with amusements in a popular entertainment. Much that had been said was eminently practical. What could be more practical than the advice of Dr. Lawson that the young men should be careful to find out who made the best bread and butter. Scientific men sometimes say much and yet know very little of the practical work of agriculture. It was refreshing to hear that Dr. Lawson and Prof. Smith could not tell the difference between a pumpkin and a squash.
Hon. Mr. Stairs said he took a great interest in farming. Two of his brothers had left mercantile pursuits and gone farming because they knew they would live happier lives. The successful farmer of today must secure the best stock and best implements available. Make these improved things the target to be aimed at. He congratulated the committee on the great success of the exhibition, and hoped to attend many more in Musquodoboit.
Warden Chipman was called to the platform, and said he believed that each district should follow these departments of industry for which it had a peculiar fitness. For example, the coast is suited for stock; the west for fruit. If you wish to raise beef go to Dr. Lawson for some of his splendid herd of short horns. If your farm is suitable for dairying, get Jerseys. The Warden was particularly partial to the Jersey. It goes back over 200 years. He thought the Holstein far inferior to the Jersey. At the recent show in Toronto the Jersey took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes over all other competitors. At the present time there are about 100,000 Jerseys. In 1840 the first Jersey was imported. He gave instances of the milk and butter record of several individuals of the Jersey family, showing their superiority over all others.
