      Assessment 1822:
      3 Jonathan Greenlaws: Jonathan D Greenlaw [s Thomas], Jonathan Greenlaw [s Jonathan], "Jonathan Greenlaw (Little)".

      Jonathan Greenlaw (Little) is not assessed for and land, and there are no deeds in the registry refering to more than two Jonathan Greenlaws around 1822.

      The moniker "Little" may refer to age, and since Jonathan D Greenlaw was born in 1795 or 1796, this implies that "Little" was born later, perhaps as late as 1801.

      If "Little" refers to stature, without physical descriptions from other sources, then there can be no onclusions drawn.

      Perhaps "Little" refers to the William Little m Ann Greenlaw family. Ann Greenlaw d Ebenezer Greenlaw m Ann.

      I propose that Jonathan Greenlaw (Little) was not the Jonathan Greenlaw s Ebenezer Greenlaw m Eunice m Sarah Greenlaw. Since Little can be born as late as 1801 to be taxed in 1822, perhaps he is an undocumented son of another Greenlaw. It is clear that there are many unaccounted for Greenlaw children in this era.

      Ebenezer Greenlaw m Eunice children [In the assessment 1822 Jonathan "Little" is listed just after Richard Greenlaw s Ebenezer m Ann.]
      s Elijah Greenlaw m Sarah Smith [m c 1790. Children through c 1817]
      s William Greenlaw m Lydia [m bef 1811. Children through 1830]
      s Jonathan Greenlaw m Sarah [m 1796. No record after]
      s Ebenezer m Ann [Although children mentioned in petitions seems to be accounted for]

      Jonathan Greenlaw m Elizabeth Lamb children
      s Jonathan Greenlaw m Mary Card [Although they were married in 1800. First child c 1801.]

      Alexander Greenlaw m Hannah Nason children
      s Walter Greenlaw m Abigail Greenlaw [m 1798. John b c 1803]
      Perhaps even a son of Alexander Greenlaw m Hannah Nason. It is unclear who the 2 sons 6 daughters in the 1807 petition refer to.

      Henry Goldsmith, an Irishman, and, it is said, a nephew of Oliver Goldsmith, the poet, became one of the leading men of the Cape Ann Association. He had a saw mill at the place now called Bartlett?s Mills. Matthew Limeburner had a mill not far distant, at the shore of the Waweig. One of the Chamcook lakes is still called Limeburner?s lake.

      http://www.chamcookwatershed.org/index.php/area-history
      In the late 18th Century, a canal was excavated from Limeburner Lake to Little Chamcook Lake to add this 480 acre drainage area to the system. Formerly, Limeburner Lake drained into the Waweig estuary by means of a stream, which was closed by a dike at the time the canal was constructed.

      To His Honour Gabriel D Ludlow, Esquire President of the Province of New Brunswick &c &c

      The Memorial of Nichs Johnson and other Inhabitants of the parish of St. Andrews, and its vicinity, in the County of Charlotte. ---

      Humbly Seweth

      That your Memorialist in general are of the number of those Loyalist, who emigrated into this country at the peace with America in 1783, or their sons now of age, and were mostly comprised among those Loyalist denominated the Penobscot Association, who settled in and about Passamaquoddy bay, and were promised One hundred acres of lands for themselves, and Fifty for their wives, and for each child. ---

      That from various intervening impediments your Memorialist never received their full allotments of land which Government had at first given them good reason to expect would not have been delayed.

      That during this long lapse of time your Memorialist have laboured under great difficulties to maintain themselves, and bring up large families of children, who, by the divine blessing have increased to a pleasing degree, as Your Honor will perceive by the annexed list of them. ---

      That your Memorialist, stimulated by parental affection to provide for their offspring have anxiously sought for unoccupied lands whereon to form a settlement for themselves and families so that by their united endeavours they may be enabled to surmount their present hardships ---

      That your Memorialist are informed of a Tract of Land lying between this county and the Oromocto river commonly called Pleasant Ridge, being in a wilderness ungranted, which if secured to your Memorialist by a Grant, might answer all their claims as to quality, and they believe is a good quality, and calculated for a large settlement. ---

      Your Memorialist therefore humbly pray Your Honor will be pleased to Grant them such a portion of the above Tract of Land as may be sufficient for their accommodation and also reserve and lay out such portions of the same, as Your Honor may deem expedient for public purposes, as they with satisfaction look forward to a large and flourishing settlement there if their Memorial is compiled with, and Your Memorialist as in duty bound will ever pray ---
