Clifton Royal: The Wetmores and Village Life in Nineteenth-Century New Brunswick

Paperback / softback
Through the Wetmore diaries, the Agricultural Society minutes and other records, this new book provides a fascinating look at farming life in nineteenth-century New Brunswick. Journal entries about plantings, community meetings, and even the militia and volunteer service, create a detailed picture of one family's fruit farms and general store. The diaries cover the years 1870 to 1891; shop records begin in 1864 and include detailed client lists. Lavishly illustrated with period photographs, this book is a must for anyone with an interest in Victorian New Brunswick, and a boon to anyone researching this part of the province.
