  • Notes 
    • Four Tibbetts women show up in the early Charlotte County records. Although they are closely connected, and three of them probably sisters, there isn't much evidence pointing to their origins. There is a thin thread between Penobscot, Grand Manan, and other locales in New Brunswick however.

      Charity Tibbetts shows up first in 1791 in the Court of General Sessions Records for Charlotte County. She had borne "one Bastard Child" and "lived and still lives in habits of Lewdness and Fornication" with Andrew Martin. I don't find record of the child anywhere else. Charity was baptised in the Anglican Church in St Andrews and had apparently married Martin by 1794. In 1795 she was the administrator of his estate. Charity may have married Gordon Gilchrist after the death of Andrew Martin.

      Sarah Tibbets was the next Tibbetts to be found in the record, marrying James Berry in the Anglican Church in 1794. It is unclear where Berry came from, but may have been related to the Berrys in Washington County, Maine. He was schoolmaster in St Andrews, arriving in the County as early as 1790. Berry was one of the bondsmen for the esate of Andrew Martin in 1795.

      Mary wife of Nicholas Johnson has been said to be a Tibbetts, but I have never found any documents stating that fact. Nicholas and Mary Johnson are connected to Charity and Mary however. The earliest record of Mary is her baptism at the Anglican Church in 1797, called the wife of Capt Johnsons. Mary and Nicholas named a son Gordon Gilchrist Johnson in 1807. Nicholas Johnson and Gordon Gilchrist were bondsmen on the estate of James Berry in 1811.

      If these three women were sisters, they probably arrived in Charlotte County together or in close succession, some time in the early 1790s. Land records, church records, petitions, grants or newspaper vital records don't suggest who their parents might be. Indeed, if their parents were in St Andrews, they died or removed soon after their arrival. Other records don't survive pointing to the birthplace of the Tibbettses, save one. The 1880 census for Catherine Johnson d Nicholas m Mary indicates both parents were born in New Brunswick. Given that New Brunswick was very sparsely settled that early, and Nicholas Johnson was known to be from Scotland, we can conclude that those spaces on the census were likely uninformed by Catherine herself.

      Looking to the husbands of the Tibbetts women, there is little in the way of a pattern. Their occupations don't corellate, Andrew an innholder and coffeehouse keeper, James a schoolmaster, and Nicholas a sea captain. There were certainly more urban jobs than rural, but nothing suggesting there was a common migration, let alone an common origin. We don't have any clues to James Berry's origin, except that there were Berry families over the border in Washington County, Maine he might be related to. Andrew Martin's birthplace is not known either, but he was an evacuee of Penobscot, and can be found there as early as 1783. Nicholas Johnson has been said to have lived at Penobscot, but there is no evidence to suggest this. In fact, other records put his birth in Scotland, probably emigrating directly from that place to St Andrews. Was this Penobscot origin of Johnson actually the orgin of his wife Mary?

      There are numerous Tibbetts families spread out through Maine, apparently all distantly related. If the St Andrews Tibbetts women were in Maine at the time of the 1790 census, one would expect them to be enumerated in a Tibbetts household. None of these households are an obvious choice. Looking toward Penobscot, we find none there until the 1800 census. Before that, during the War when the British held Penobscot, there were a couple of Tibbetts men working as laborers on the fort, but none are clearly related to the St Andrews Tibbetts.

      In 1800, John Tibbetts and John Tibbetts Jr were heads of households at Penobscot. They had just moved from Condas Keag Plantation (now Bangor) that year. John may have been the son of Samuel Tibbetts m Sarah Lowe who had lived in Scarborough, and moved to Georgetown by 1761. There are no records suggesting John served in the military during the Revolutionary War, and of his brothers, Samuel, Andrew and Benjamin, only Samuel may have served. Were these Tibbetts Loyalist or neutral? Turns out the John Tibbetts familiy was probably one of the pre-Loyalist families settling in New Brunswick. The 1880 census of Catherine Johnson may have correctly recorded her mother's birthplace after all.

      The first hint I found of New Brunswick origins of the Penobscot (and ultimately St Andrews) Tibbetts was an article about the Journal of Capt John Chester Tibbets in the New England Quarterly. The article mentioned that his father came to Brooksville from Grand Manan. At first, this didn't seem to fit into the timeline. John Chester's father was John Lowe Tibbetts. He was the head of household in every US Federal census after his marriage. Although he wasn't in the same location at each census, he didn't move far: 1800 Castine, 1810 Sedgwick, 1820 Brooksville. [In fact, he may not have moved, as the town lines may have moved around him.] Looking more closely at this family, we find John Lowe in the 1850 census, his birthplace given as "New Brunswick." The 1800 census indicated that John Tibbetts and John Tibbetts Junior had both come from "St Johns." This certainly is a reference to Saint John, New Brunswick, but more likely to the River Saint John.

      Although Saint John was settled before the Revolutionary War, this reference probably points to the River Saint John. A John Tibbetts settled on the Saint John River in the parish of Burton around 1766, and this is certainly the John Tibbetts who returned to Maine. It is unclear if he was married at the time of his New Brunswick settlement, but his family soon grew, with as many as 8 children by 1780. He never had title on the land he lived on at the mouth of the Oromocto River, and an application was made in 1785 by Constant Conners for a grant of the land. John challeneged that request with a petition to have the land granted to him instead, or to be granted land elswhere, but his petition was not complied with, although the new grantee would have to pay him for his improvements.

      Effectively kicked off their farm of nearly 20 years, the Tibbetts needed to find another place to settled. John, with his eldest son Benjamin, in 1790 made a petition for lots on Mactaquac Stream, but these lots don't seem to have been granted. John removed to Condas Keag Planataion in Maine (later Bangor), while Benjamin remained in New Brunswick. Benjamin settled in Queensbury, York County, and was eventually granted land there in 1813. While Benjamin seems to have lived out his days in Queensbury, John and the rest of his family were more unsettled. Some eventually returned to New Brunswick.

      In 1807, John Lowe Tibbetts and his brother Samuel, among a few dozen others, made a petition for a grant of land on Grand Manan. John was not granted any land, and left Grand Manan "in an open boat," as his son John Chester's journal states. His father had settled in the part of Castine that would be set off to Brooksville. John Lowe joined him by the 1810 census. Samuel was granted land on Grand Manan, but never seems to have taken up residence there. He did remain in New Brunswick, settling in Woodstock, Carleton County, where he lived for many years. Another brother Andrew may have lived in the household of John Senior in 1790 at Condas Keag, but that is unclear. What is certain is that he was living in York County by 1803, when he asked the Crown for land.

      The movements of this Tibbetts family bring them as close as Grand Manan with certainty, although a few years later than the women's arrival in St Andrews, but the thread is there. What is unclear is what brought the women to St Andrews. The connection with Penobscot is probably how they got there. Andrew Martin is known to be from Penobscot. Nicholas Johnson is said to have lived there, and his work as a mariner probably brought him there and back many times. The historic and familial connection between St Andrew and Penobscot, a connection that did not cease after the war or after the evacuation, may have led to Nicholas plying the waters between St Andrews and Penobscot, and perhaps to the Tibbetts women's emigration to New Brunswick.

      The hypotheses:
      1 that Charity, Mary and Sarah Tibbetts of St Andrews were sisters, and
      2 that they are the daugthers of John Tibbetts m Abigail, are consistent with their biographies, and make a valid explanation for their origins.

      John and Abigail's long history in New Brunswick certainly slanted their eyes toward that region. And their children indeed made their way back their. There is room in the John m Abigail Tibbetts family for the St Andrews Tibbetts women, and the conclusion that they belong to this family is consistent.
