214 Alias: The Lunar Rogue; Alias: Henry Frederic Moon; Alias: William Newman; Alias: Henry Hopkins
The Lunar Rogue- Although Henry More Smith is one of the most interesting reprobates in New Brunswick history he was never actually incarcerated in York County Jail on Brunswick Street. He was a fugitive from Nova Scotia who came to New Brunswick in 1812. Records show that he was sentenced to death for stealing a horse and was sent to Kingston Jail, Kings County. More Smith, however, had other plans. The wily thief faked a grave illness as part of a cunning escape plan, a plan that was ultimately successful.
Once free, More Smith traveled up the St. John River to Fredericton and continued his life of crime. Though he was arrested and remanded to Kingston, the authorities were not able to keep a hold on the slippery More Smith, for he escaped en route to the jail. Having once again obtained his freedom, More Smith gambled it again. He had the nerve to slip his way, undetected, into the official residence of Thomas Wetmore, Attorney General of New Brunswick, during a dinnerparty. The Lunar Rogue made off with top-hats, cloaks, and other articles belonging to the guests.
More Smith's adventures in Fredericton eventually came to an end. He was arrested and sent to the York County Jail, then on King street, and eventually escorted back to Kingston by the Sheriff of York County.

Waiting for the Gallows - While in Kingston, More Smith managed to slip out of his shackles on several occasions. This provoked the jailor to chain the prisoner's hands and feet and place an iron collar around his neck. He was then chained to the floor. Despite these measures, Smith proved to be irrepressible. By letter, Sheriff Bates complained to the Attorney General that the prisoner was impossibly disruptive:
"After securing him with strong chains to his neck and legs, and with handcuffs, he continued beating the floor; hallooing day and night with little intermission, making different sounds; sometimes with jinkling his chains and sometimes without, apparently in different parts of the gaol, insomuch when we found the largest chain parted about the middle and tied with a string, which clearly proves that irons and chains are no security for him."
Although he was heavily chained and shackled, More Smith found an outlet for his creative nature. He formed an entire "family" of life-like marionettes out of straw from his mattress and shreds of his own clothing, with blood and charcoal serving as paint.
The eccentric prisoner left a strong impression on Sheriff Bates and the community of onlookers who had witnessed his talents. They believed it was a shame to execute this remarkable character. Bates traveled to Fredericton to plead on behalf of his prisoner. He was given assurance from the Attorney General that More Smith would be granted a pardon if he would leave the province, never to return. The Mysterious Stranger fulfilled that promise and Sheriff Bates would never again lay eyes on the wily and irrepressible Lunar Rogue. Little did he know that over 200 years later his legacy lives on in the form of a pub at 625 King Street.

OBITUARY: Annie Berry
Maccan, Sept. 16 - The death of Annie May Berry, age 76, took place at the
home of her sister, Mrs. Clarence Bigney, early Saturday morning, after an
illness of two weeks, following a paralytic stroke. The late Miss Berry was
a daughter of the late Edward and Paulina (Ward) Berry of Maccan. She
resided for several years following the death of his wife, with a brother at
Parrsboro, but spent the greater part of her life at Maccan where she was
well known and highly respected. For the past number of years she had lived
with her sister on the homestead where she spent her childhood. Owing to
failing health and faculties she had of late years been confined much to her
home, where, however, she took an active interest in household affairs, and
her sudden seizure came as a shock to the members of her family, to whom the
sympathy of their many friends is extended. She is survived by one brother,
Leonard of Boston and one sister, Maud (Mrs. Bigney) of Maccan.

229 Amy was widowed at age 43. At age 48 she was baptized on October 4,
1840. She was born a Baptist so it appears that she converted to
Anglican when she married Robert but wasn't baptized as such until
after his death.
Amy Ward is listed in the 1871 Hants County census as 79 years old, at household a 0 0 which means she had already died within 12 months of the census.

240 Anne Warde, was probably Sir Christopher's second
daughter. She appears to be the "Anne Warde of the parish of "Ripon" who had a license to marry John Wandesford, esq., of Kirtlington, on February 12, 1491-2. This marriage was annulled, apparently shortly afterwards.
"1556, April 1. — An instrument of dissolution of the marriage between
Anne Warde, daughter of Christopher Warde of Cuerdale [sic; sc. Givendale], and John Wansford of Kirtlington, esq., by reason of a previous contract between her and Ralph Nevill, and declaring Ralph and Anne to be lawful man and wife. Under the seal of the Prerogative Court, Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop; notarial certificate at the end. 3 The date given to this document is apparently that of the notarial copy extracted from the records of the York Consistory Court."

247 Archibald Smith and his wife Anna lived on the Lake farm at Scotch Village; the Genealogy of the Smith Family gives considerable detail concerning Archibald, 'Previous to his marriage in 1790, he worked as a farm hand on the farm at home and for his neighbours, the Allisons, Days and others. It was customary to drive the fatted cattle to halifax on foot. There were no bridges across the St. Croix River, and fords were established to safeguard crossings, imperilled by shifting sands on tidal waters. The common ford was at 'Gravel Point', seldom or never now used, but still to be seen. From Halifax to Yarmouth was the 'Old Coach Road', still visible, the trail, from Newport joining it, thence to Halifax, over Ardoise Hill, passing through the 500 acre grant given to the Rev. George Gillmore in 1784, by the Nova Scotia Gov. ... Archibald Smith, on one of these 'drives of cattle' to Halifax met the young lady Anne Gillmore, who became his wife in 1790, and the mother of the many that bear the name Smith and others. About this time he acquired a property adjoining the Gillmore Grant, on the north, with the intention of settling thereon. Receiving from his father that portion of the Bennett Farm already mentioned, he sold the Ardoise property to his brother Thomas. It is said that after their marriage they moved to Cambridge, Kempt Township, buying a large tract of land from one, Robert Johnson, paying the sum of 400 pounds. Why they removed is not clear, but apparently they were not satisfied with their change, for the next year, 1813, we find them exchanging this large tract for a smaller one in Scotch Village, known as the Nathan Lake farm....' SMITH, Archibald (I1853)
 
248 Archibald's cousin. GILLMORE, Jane (I2048)
 
249 Arthur was a merchant, ship owner and political figure in Nova Scotia. He represented Hants County in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly from 1859 to 1863.
At the age of 16, he joined his brother Loran De Wolf in business in Halifax, later setting up in business for himself in Maitland. He also operated a farm.
Cochran was a justice of the peace, a school commissioner for East Hants and also served in the local militia for a time. In 1875, he was named to the province's Legislative Council. 
COCHRANE, Arthur McNutt (I4049)
 
250 As a young man he was employed by the Gov. of the Province to locate and
build the shore roads at Cambridge, Pembroke, Walton, Tennycape, Noel, etc.
Eventually he removed to Portland, ME engaging in business where his family
of eight childdren located. He died in 1849, aged 56. "
