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.

212 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.

220 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."

226 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)
227 Archibald's cousin. GILLMORE, Jane (I2048)
228 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)
229 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. "

BERRY, Andrew (I991)
247 At Cumberland, 19th August, 1786, William and his brothers were put under the guardianship of a John Stuart Jr. of Amherst 5 yrs after their father died.

Note: The definition given of 'letter of guardianship': "A legal document that grants to an individual the legal authority to oversee the affairs of a minor child or an adult who is deemed by a court to be incapable of managing his or her own affairs."
So, it doesn't necessarily mean that John Stuart took them in to raise them. He may have only been a 'guardian' in the handling of their affairs.

This same John Stuart later purchased land from William's older brother Thomas, April 20, 1790, signed by Thomas and Mary Berry, and William and Nancy Hall (William's mother)

On 27 November 1802 a William Berry and his wife Phebe sold 875 acres to John Ripley (Deed Book G, p. 416, Document #503709272, registered 1821).
