Royalton Wesleyan Church – home of 1876 map

We were at a Homecoming in Royalton, New Brunswick in August 2007 and were privileged to see an old map of Carleton County, for 1876.

The information on the Map reads:  “Map of Carleton County New Brunswick.  Compiled and Drawn From Official Plans and Actual Surveys.  Published by ROE & COLBY, St. John N.B. 1876.  Scale  1 1/4 inches to a Mile”

Our Millers are in Wicklow Parish, along the Maine – New Brunswick Border.

    I’d love to see a higher resolution image of the map. It’s amazing. I’ve never seen anything like that with all the names.

    I’ve been trying trace the Wiggins family in that area, so I love coming across anything knew.

    Thanks for posting this in the first place!

  2. Hi Leigh,
    Unfortunately I don’t have a higher resolution photo of the map. The map itself is behind glass and hanging on the wall in the Royalton Church just north of Tracy Mills. Perhaps someone could take another photo for you if you ask around. Unfortunately I’m on the other side of the country or I’d do it for you.
