  • Notes 
    • He was a ship carpenter.
      His daughter's 1900 census says he was born at sea.


      James Wing purchased land of Lydia Church in 1831. Within a year after the purchase, the following appeared as an advertisement:
      "Fairhaven Hotel. The subscriber informs his former customers and the public that the new house erected by him for a Hotel was opened in July last, and is now prepared for the reception of company. Stables and shedsattached. (Signed) James Wing, August 21, 1832."

      Mr. George F. Averill, of Salem, operated the hotel which he opened on May 6, 1856. In 1860, Fairhaven was temporarily without a hotel until the "Union Hotel" was reopened under a new management, Mr. J. B. Carter, of Boston, in June of that year. On May 3, 1865, the hotel with furniture, was sold at auction as a result of foreclosure by the bank, which had held the property for nearly two decades. Charles Allen and James Davis were, at different times, managers, the latter opening the hostelry in January, 1868. Then followed the announcement, in March, 1878, that the hotel would change landlords, this time Mr. and Mrs. Ebenezer Bryden taking charge.
