Name of creator
Freighter, farmer, and merchant Duncan D. Glasier (1819-1884), the son of Planter or Pre-Loyalist Benjamin Glasier, moved from Massachusetts to what is now New Brunswick with his parents and brothers -- John, Stephen, and Benjamin -- in 1779. The family settled in Lincoln, Sunbury County. Duncan and his wife, Sarah, had no fewer than three children: Murray (b. 1846), Parker (b. 1849) and Ada (Miles).
By the 1860s, Duncan Glasier was operating a steam tugs business at Indiantown or Portland (later part of the city of Saint John) and dealing in lumber, as well as managing a farm in Sunbury County. These records suggest that he also ran a general store in Lincoln. By the 1880s, he owned at least two steamers, the "Ada G." and the "Lincoln." His son, Parker Glasier, worked with him in the firm and carried on the business after his death. D. D. Glasier died intestate on 10 March 1884 in Lincoln.
Information about the custody of these records prior to acquisition is incomplete.
