      Considering the attack on Rachel during the Revolution, and her age, it is unlikely that she and her husband Benjamin Parker had any more children after their arrival on Campobello. Thomas Parker was married in 1801, and Richard in 1795. So we can conclude that any Parker children born on Campobello before that time belonged to Jonathan Parker.

      Contributed By Heather Leighton Waddingham

      Jonathan Parker in 1804 leased the Clark/Butler house and was given leave to sell liquor in the house and to trade.

      Jonathan Parker leased land in 1804 but in 1814 gave up his claim to all land in Campobello and went to St John. All his large family went with him except the two oldest sons, Benjamin who married Maria Wilson in 1812 and Thomas who married Miriam Ludlow in 1814. The latter was the daughter of Stephen was a son of Josiah Patterson one of the first grantees of Saint John. Stephen was heir to his father's property, sold it in 1811 and went to Campobello. He leased land at Snug Cove and either built or took over the large house erected in 1816 which afterward was occupied by Capt. John Patterson

      In 1816 Jonathan Parker reappeared on the Island apparently back from St. John. Two of his daughters had married, Frances married Christopher Young, a young man in the Saint John Fencibles. His father was George Young, a Long Island loyalist who had bought a large property in St. John and in 1816 gave it to his son Christopher. Christopher sold out in 1822 and went to Campobello with his wife. Mary, another daughter of Jonathan Parker married Thomas Patterson, son of Stephen Patterson.

      Jonathan Parker upon returning to Campobello built a new house, the old one in ruins. According to David Owen he did not pay his rents and Owen put a writ of ejectment on Jonathan Parker and gave possession of the house to Charles Hatheway, Deputy Collector & Surveyor. When he arrived with the Sheriff to take possession Jonathan Parker attacked him and drew a sword and struck him three times.

      The Jonathan Parker family has an old tradition of wealth on Long Island, New York before the war.
