John Wallis (b. August 07, 1759, d. December 17, 1818)
John Wallis (son of John Wallis and Anna Thorndike) was born August 07, 1759 in Beverly, MA, Essex County, and died December 17, 1818 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. He married Nancy Ann Hay on October 23, 1786 in Mystic, Medford Township, MA.
Notes for John Wallis: Neil Brown and other family genealogists have this John Wallis to be the son of John Wallis, born 1734 in Beverly, MA and married to Anna Thorndike. Eileen Wallace states that this John was probably the son of Caleb Wallace of Bedford, MA. I agree with Neil for I found documentary evidence that this John was the son of John and Anna (Thorndike) Wallis (RootsWeb.com, Contact: email@example.com, John T. Sargent).
The New Brunswick Royal Gazette, Fredericton, Dec. 22, 1818: "Died in this place very suddenly, on Thursday evening last, Mr. John Wallace in the 60th year of his age, a resident of Long reach in Kings County; an old and respected inhabitant of this province. His remains were interred on Saturday last."
About 1787 John and Nancy Ann and their family moved from Beverly, MA to Fredericton, New Brunswick because they were still loyal to the King of England and did not want to remain in the Colonies. Actually the province they moved to was called Nova Scotia because New Brunswick had not yet been partitioned off from Nova Scotia. Their first child, John B. Wallace, was born in Beverly, January 31, 1787 and their second child, Nancy (Ann) Wallace, was born January 7, 1789, in Saint Marys, York County, NB. They seemed to have changed the spelling of their name from Wallis to Wallace when they moved to NB. This is how the Wallis/Wallace Family arrived in Canada from Beverly, Ma, USA.
