Births & Deaths
From Sheffield Township Record Book 1767-1845
Transcribed by Cleadie B. Barnett, C.G. (C)


Although designated Sheffield Record Book, there is a portion titled Town Record of Maugerville, and it is assumed that after that section ( where the oo0oo was placed by the original typist) is the records of Sheffield.

Not all death entries had dates recorded. Here again the assumption is that these event took place following the last date recorded, but that assumption may be incorrect. It would be wise to check neswpapers since they seem to be in the correct time period. They may well be Mr. Burpe's own family items, such as you will find recorded between the birth and death records.

Amoung the pages there can also be found items on stray cattle, as well as reports of earthquakes and hurricanes and unusually cold weather when the ice did not leave the river until 3rd. May.

In the year of our lord 1816 was the coldest summer ever known in the memory of man followed by a severe winter. One family with horse and sleigh or sled came from Burton to the meeting in Sheffield on the twenty first day of April 1817. A number of Horse team were passing on the river the next day, the main body of the ice in the river did not move any until the third day of May--on thursday morning the 15th of May a little after day break we had a shock of an earth quake.


In the year 1869 October 4 a part of New Brunswick was visited with a hurricane the heaviest that ever was known and on the 22nd of Oct. same year we had a shock of an earthquake which knocked down chimneys and damaged buildings.
