E-mail: jdavidckark@pei.sympatico.ca
Surnames: CLARK
Query: Hi neighbour. I am researching my ancestor John Clark of Halifax, 1778-1838. He was a Grain and Flour Merchant, as well as a Banker. He was a business partner of the Allisons, Blacks and Samuel Cunard. Clark and Martin Gay Black applied for a Bank Charter 1827 which was defeated. Clark operated a near Bank of his own, holding Mortgages and Notes. His father, John, had settled on Prince Edward Island, ca. 1779. I can not find the origin of John Sr., however, it is now believed his first wife might have been Chloe Atwater from New Haven, CT. As John Jr. was a prominent Halifax person, I thought he might have conducted business with Simeon Perkins.The Halifax Clarks were intermarried with surnames Koch, Nixon, Richardson, Lloyd, Boggs, Morris, Black. Would a volunteer, on a next trip to the Queens County Museum look up the above captioned references in Simeon Perkins Diary 1766-1812. I have reviewed the probate papers of Halifax. John, Mortgage and Note loans and found most transactions were with those of pre Loyalist, Planter and Loyalist descent. I would be greatly indebted for any considerations. Kindest regards to all.
