Early Loyalist Settlers at Kingston
When we moved to Kingston, on the Kingston Peninsula, New Brunswick, in 1969, it seemed remote, lonely and at the ends of the earth.. We knew nobody and had moved into a house that had belonged to a member of a rigidly religious and reclusive family who shunned us as outsiders more than they shunned their fellow citizens who did not adhere to the chosen faith. It was an unlucky landing for a young family, as no other neighbours lived close by, so our young children had nobody but themselves to play with. This was made harder to because they knew these people had youngsters who were not allowed contact with us. All about us was their land, their territory, their hostility. We had no idea that these people were not the standard for the wider community and some lonely years were ahead for us.
Now, for us, Kingston and the Kingston Peninsula is the center of the universe. We have had a long and varied family life and working life here, an interesting story, of which, I will write more later.

Hi I am willing to share a bit of the Cosman family history of descendants from the Kingston branch. Two brothers and a sister moved to Head of Millstream about 1850 receiving land grants of which I am one of the descendants. Doug

I grew up in Fredericton with family members from Browns Flats and all over that area all the way to the Cambridge Narrows. I worked with Laura and Tom at UNB and always heard such good things about Kingston Peninsula. Thanks for lovely images and connections to part of my history. Would love to say hello to Tom and Laura if ever they wish to get in touch. I now work at Acadia University.
