Biography

Thomas Smullin, with his wife and six children, immigrated to the Miramichi from Westneath, central Ireland. They may have arrived either in 1823 with the group of Irish immigrants that came to Bathurst or in 1825. In any case, the great fire of 1825 in the Miramichi devastated the land, homes and businesses of the area and necessitated their moving. They walked to Fredericton along the dirt roads, wading the river crossing, backpacking their few possessions and carrying their gold coins in a sock. The sock was lost during this journey and the family had to retrace their steps to find it.

From Fredericton, the family came on a boat to Lower Southampton where they took care of an apple orchard for Jacob Allan. Thomas then purchased 400 acres of land.

This information comes from the book the Nackawic Bend 200 years of history page 86.
