I am seeking information on Tamberlane Campbell who died on his farm across the river from Woodstock around 1821. I have not been able to ascertain the exact date he died, nor have I been able to determine how he came to Canada, from where or when.Leigh Campbell
Information related to his military service in 1759-60 and again in 1775 is part of the record as are his movements from Nova Scotia up the St.John River. I would appreciate hearing from anyone with information on this individual.
Tamberlane Joseph (the Campbell who sailed to NZ via Australia on the brig Australia but ended up in Brunswick, New Zealand which is on the lower west coast of the North Island near Wanganui) was the second son of John and John was the first son of the senior Tamberlane.
Newspaper article from
the Wanganui Herald 25
May 1953. With photo of Tamberlane Joseph Campbell, who
opened up the Brunswick district just 100 years ago.
CANADIAN CUSTOMS INFLUENCED THE EARLY LIFE OF BRUNSWICK
"Dinkum" Canadian doughnuts, buckwheat cakes and a carefree childhood spent in roaming the unspoilt countryside will be among things talked over by Brunswick old-timers when they meet at the district's 100th jubilee celebrations next weekend. At any rate those are some of the subjects that Mr W.E. Campbell, a grandson of Nova Scotian Tamberlane Joseph Campbell, who was Brunswick's first settler, can discuss with animation..... Mr Campbell told the "Herald" how his grandfather, Mr T.J. Campbell, hacked his way from Wanganui to Brunswick through tutu and fern, cutting the road for his bullock wagon as he went. But the story of the Campbell family's pioneering goes back another couple of centuries.
During the London plague a certain Mr Campbell took fright and caught the first ship to Nova Scotia. He settled up the St. John River and for seven generations his ancestors lived there and thrived in the local timber and the local shipbuilding, timber and fishing industries. Then in the early 1850's a small adventurous group captained by Tamberlane Joseph Campbell built their own ship and set sail for Melbourne. The name of the ship has been forgotten, but a list of the majority of the crew members who were also part owners, is intact. They were: Walter Abram, Lorenza Abram, Mrs Bradock, Walter Bradock, Mr F. Baker, Mr D.D. Cunnabell and his son A.D. Cunnabell, Mrs Cunnabell, Mr and Mrs A.G. Hurley and their son Frank Hurley, Lemen Seperall, Frank and George Jackson, George Perry, Alfred Perry, and Mr Campbell and family. They arrived in Melbourne late in 1852. Some of the party were dropped in Australia while the rest sailed on for New Zealand. What happened to the ship is apparently unknown, but some of her part owners settled in various parts of this country, while the rest returned to Australia. Mr Campbell arrived in Wanganui in March 1853, after an arduous journey by bullock wagon up the coast. He had to carve his own track through virgin bush over the hills behind Paekakariki as his was the first wheeled vehicle to come up from Wellington. His wife (originally Miss Elizabeth Cunnabell) and four children, Allan, George, Eliza and Elizabeth travelled with him. After arriving at Brunswick which he named after his old home in Nova Scotia, Mr Campbell built a house of manuka timber and mud. He farmed the land for 16 years until he was killed while ploughing. His two sons, Allen and George, carried on the farm. The Cunnabells and the Hurleys were the only members of the original party from Canada who later settled in Brunswick......"
Brunswick, NZ, is near
Wanganui river (8km from the river). There is a cemetery
in Wanganui which covers that vicinty as Brunswick is a small town. It is at 39°
51'lat. and 175° 2' longitude. Place names of New Zealand. (A.W.Reed, 1973), page 56, it mentions that, "Two early settlers came from New Brunswick in Canada. Their names were Joseph Tamberlaine Campbell and James Cunnell. They settled on the land they had purchased in 1853. It is said that they gave the name because it reminded them of New Brunswick.

JONES, David - appears in the 1851 census of Woodstock, Carleton County, N.B., age 40, blacksmith, with wife Jane (named only as "Mrs."), age 38, with children Maria, 15, Hannah, Samuel, Charles, Edward, David, Nancy and Robert.
Daughter Maria (Mary Maria) married 21 May 1855 Jesse BAKER as his second wife. Mary Maria (JONES) BAKER died 12 July 1864, evidently at Woodstock, and he obituary was printed in the 'Carleton Sentinel' on 16 July 1864 with the notation at the bottom, "Canada papers please copy."
I'm assuming (dangerous, yes) that that notation indicated the JONES family either came from Upper Canada, or a branch of the family had settled there.
I'm seeking the maiden name of David JONES' wife and the ancestry of both of them, place(s) of birth, date and place of marriage, in short, any bits of information relating to David and Jane JONES. Any and all information will be greatly appreciated. R. Wallace Hale
