Dibblee land grants in Parr Town (St. John)

There is an entry on the Index to New Brunswick Land Grants, 1784 - 1997 (see the website of Provincial Archives of New Brunswick), dated 1785-01-07, in the name of Frederick Dibble, along with 91 other names, for land in Parr Town, County of Sunbury. There is no amount of land specified, but there is a comment "Re-registered NS Grant of 1784/08/09". In 1785, Parr Town was amalgamated with Carleton to become the City of Saint John, New Brunswick.

Another name in this grant is Polly Dibblee, the widow of Fyler Dibblee, Frederick's older brother. See The Dibblees and the American War of Independence.




Dibblee plots of land near Kingston

These plots of land are near Kingston, which is upriver from St. John. I am not sure whether the land grant above applies to these plots, or whether it refers to a different grant.

The Dibblee plots of land have been outlined in red. See full map below.

Dibblee land grants near Woodstock

The website W. O. Raymond Scrapbook states "Sergeant Thomas Fowler moved from Woodstock to Northampton about 1793 having sold his grant of 400 acres to Rev. F. Dibblee."

The first William may be the son of Fyler Dibblee rather than the son of Rev. Frederick Dibblee - see W. O. Raymond Scrapbook. Ebenezer Dibblee is also not a child of Rev. Frederick Dibblee. So it suggests that Rev. Frederick Dibblee's older sons (aprt from Richard) got land grants in 1809, and his younger sons in 1824. William and Richard got land in Wakefield, nearby, later, in 1826. One son is not mentioned here, David. He became a barrister in Fredericton. Rev. Frederick Dibblee seems to have added to his land, or perhaps he got his ownership ratified, in 1822. There is also the matter of the glebe land, which supported his work at Rector.
