About this Item

This 2 volume bible contains the family records of Samuel and Martha Mason, who were born respectively in 1761 and 1766 in London. They settled in St. John, New Brunswick, where they had 12 children born between 1783 and (maybe) 1812 - John, Elizabeth, William, George, Ann, Martha, Samuel, Edward, Jane, Mary, James, and Matilda. Nine of the children have the days, months and years listed, while 3 children have only the year of their birth. Other entries are for a Martha Coombs, 1749 - (?)1815; Martha Mason's sister Ann Sutherland's date of birth - Nov. 9, 1768; and in very small writing at the bottom of the page is what appears to be the birth entry for a Robert Mason in Newburyport, Mass. in 1787 or 1789. The family records are written on the back of the New Testament title page, with the heading - "The Property of Martha Mason, St. John Sept. 10" (no year). The 2 volumes are in poor condition and need to be rebound. Vol. 1 - The Old Testament has the printing date of 1767. The worn covers are detached, the spine is worn and is chipped. Vol. 2 continues the Old Testament, and has the title page for the New Testament which is dated 1765. Lacks the front cover, lacks the spine, some pages are missing, with other pages being incomplete and worn. Some pages are soiled and are detached. From other sources I find that a Samuel Mason of St. John was born in 1761 and died in 1827. He was a member of the Loyal Artillery of St. John - New Brunswick Regiment. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 12533
