There were 11 families on the Lovey that arrived in Moncton in 1766. 8 are credited as being the original settlers of Moncton.[1] The other 3 are John Reynolds who likely left the area before 1770, John Ackley who shows up the Cumberland in 1770 and James Smith who moved to Hillsborough by 1770. James Smith is the only one of the three with descendants in the area.
