  • Notes 
    • In 1835, the Bryden brothers, William and Robert, came from Old Barns and settled at Tatamagouche. They were both born at Maitland, and were descendants of Robert Bryden, who was one of the Dumfries settlers of Pictou,* and who subsequently settled on the Middle River, Pictou County. William was a blacksmith and had his place of business where Gordon Fraser now pursues the same trade. Before purchasing what is now the Reilly property, he lived in the old house of Alexander Campbell. His wife was Susan Kent who, after his death, married Charles Reilly.
