      History of the Episcopal Church in Washington County, Maine
      bmartin episcopalmaine.org
      Hello Ms Martin,
      I found you email address on the Diocese of Maine website and I hope you might be able to answer a question for me.

      I suspect that my ancestor was married in the Eastport/Calais area of Maine around 1820, but the record of his marriage does not appear in the civil records in any of the nearby towns (or New Brunswick). I understand that no Episcopal churches were established in the area until much later. I have read, however, that itinerant Episcopal ministers would visit these far flung reaches of Maine and performed marriages and baptized children. My hope is that the papers of one of these ministers might reveal the marriage record (or even a mention of the baptisms of his children) of my ancestor. I cannot begin a search, though, for I don't know who might have been those ministers, or where I might find their papers.

      Do you know who the ministers who traveled to the Eastport/Calais region in the 1810s and 1820s were? Do their papers or record of their ministry exist still? Is access granted to the public?

      Thanks for any information and assistance you might be able to offer.

      William D Romanski
      Rhode Island

      Dear Mr. Romanski:

      Thank you again for your patience.

      Our research indicates the parish in Calais met for the first time in 1850, and the parish in Eastport in 1856. Both too early for your research (1820). Before that, the region was served by the Rt. Rev. Alexander Viets Griswold, Bishop of the "Eastern Diocese".

      Bishop Griswold's "Official Acts" are located in the Diocese of Massachusetts. http://www.diomass.org/content/archives

      I'm sure the archivist there will be able to further your research.

      Good luck!

      Peacefully,
      Barb

      Edited by Peter M Toner, New Ireland Press, 1988

      Reception of the Irish in New Brunswick, William A Spray

      p 14
      The growth of the Atlantic timber trade made it easier for immigrants to get to New Brunswick. Earlier, many of the timber ships crossed the Atlantic in ballast to pick up timber. With the increased demand for cheap passages, ship owners found they could make quick profits by putting in temporary decks and filling the holds with passengers. The immigrants were not charged very much for a passage, but little was done to make them comfortable and they had to provide their own provisions. In 1818 the standard fare from Londonderry to St Andrews was five guineas. To Saint John it was usually three and a half guineas but could be even lower, depending on the number of ships competing for passengers. Ships bound for American ports charged ten guineas. Ships bound for Saint John and St Andrews were advertised as being convenient for immigrants going to Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and this route was taken whenever possible by poor immigrants.

      p 15
      The east coast ports of the United States charged masters or shipowners a head tax for every passenger landed. This tax was to used to offset any expense that might be incurred if the immigrants became ill or could not find employment. The usual practice was to add the sum to the cost of the passage. Since New Brunswick did not have a head tax in the early years, this gave New Brunswick bound ships another advantage. Later, in 1832, when New Brunswick finally introduced a head tax, it was only half that charged to American ports.

      p 16
      For a two-year period after 1823 there was a decrease in the number of Irish immigrants arriving in the province. This was chiefly because of the passage of a new, more stringent Passenger Act in 1823, which restricted the number of passengers a vessel could carry to one for every five tons. Ships had to carry better provisions, including meat, which was to be issued daily, and there was to be more careful inspection by officials. The most radical change, however, was the requirement that ships carrying more than fifty passengers had to have a surgeon. It was hard to find surgeons willing to sail on immigrant vessels, and passenger fares increased, making it almost impossible for the Irish poor to immigrate. Conditions on vessels that did sail certainly improved, but there were protests from agents and shipowners who felt the new act was valuable if we wish to keep the pauper population at home, but the most irrational and absurd that can be imagined if we wish to facilitate their egress. The new act certainly had its effect on the number of Irish immigrants arriving in New Brunswick in 1824 when their number dropped to 2,049, which was a decrease of over fifty percent from the previous year, when 4, 721 arrived. The numbers arriving in 1825 remained low at just over 2,500.

      p 17
      The shipowners were successful in 1827 in having the Passenger Act repealed. According to colonial officials, the consequences were disastrous. Passage rates dropped from ?2 to ?3 for voyages to New Brunswick ports as compared to ?5 for American ports. More and more poor immigrants were able to take advantage of these low fares and the result was crowded vessels, poor food, and sickness among many Irish immigrants who came out in transient vessels chartered for the express purpose of making money, by men reckless of character or consequence, so long as they suppose the Law will not reach them.

      p 18
      It seems the immigrants of 1826 and 1827 included more sick and destitute paupers than ever before.

      p 18
      The reaction in the colonies and at home to the abuses of 1827 was so strong that another new Passenger Act was passed in 1828. Although not as restrictive as the act of 1823, it brought back limitations as to the number of passengers to be carried and the quality and quantity of provisions to be issued. This new act remain in force until 1835 and it did not cause a decrease in the number of Irish immigrating.

      P M Toner

      p 110
      Insofar as can be determined from the evidence, many of the immigrants arrived as families. In fact, two of every three Irish-born married couples listed in the census had arrived in New Brunswick already married, many with children. In addition to these, it is also apparent that in many cases, the husband arrived earlier to seek employment and later sent for his wife and children, and even parents. There are numerous cases where the husband and father had a date of arrival as much as eight years in advance of the rest of the family, which usually arrived later as a group. Sometimes the rest of the family arrived a few at a time. This phenomenon was especially common in the Miramichi, where labour for timber production was imported from Scotland and Ireland for a period of years.

      p 113
      The vast majority of the people of Ireland at this time were tenant farmers of landlords' farm labourers. Therefore, it is not surprising that many of the immigrants were farmers here as well. The prospect of owning farmland either through grant or purchase must have been a great incentive for emigration, and the land which had been half cleared by timber operations was part of the lure of New Brunswick. A few Irish immigrants were willing to be tenant farmers here, but most were proprietors.

      The majority of those who arrived before 1825 were farmers.
