Narrative

History of Belmont, Lot 16:

Donald Campbell settled a hundred acres in 1808. This land stayed in the Campbell name for at least 80 years.

William Campbell is another early settler who perhaps had the largest tract of land. It is re-ported in the Census of 1861 that of his total 400 acres, 200 was held in fee simple and the remain-ing 200 acres was held under lease. However, only 100 acres of this land was said to be arable at that time.
This farm was later owned by Daniel Campbell and stayed in the Campbell name until 1922.

Other Petitioners Daniel Campbell John Cook Alexander Cameron
Notes Angus Cameron and Daniel Campbell were Loyalists. John Cook and Alexander Cameron were "late of the 42nd Regiment"

In Campbell’s Deposition he claimed he “carried arms on behalf of His
Sovereign on every occasion during the late War until he was under the
necessity of leaving the Country” [evacuated to Jamaica, possibly December
1782]

Donald Campbell was in the 1798 census with a household of 10.

 

Names of children taken from Will of Daniel Campbell, of Lot 16, who owned considerable amounts of land in Lot 16.

Archibald and William, sons
Archibald, eldest son
Daniel (i.e. Donald)
Mary and her husband Hugh Smith, Lot 17 - youngest
Elizabeth, widow of Donald Carr, Lot 14
Barbara, w/o John McIntosh, Lot 14
Jane, w/o Donald English, who had died about 5 years earlier leaving 5 children

The will also mentions Hector McLean, tailor; Gilbert and Hugh McArthur, possibly to be paid for labour. John McDougald purchased some of the land in an auction.

His wife was called Mary Campbell several times in this document - first wife's name is a mistake, or a second wife?

(from Early PEI Probate Records, 1786-1850 by Linda Jean Nicholson)
