Family History :  John Day received Parrtown lot #1135. In 1784 John received 200 cares, lot #26, on the Saint John River at Wickham, Queens County (in 1991 this property is just upriver from Gerow's wharf). Henry and William Day received Parrtown lots #1123 and 1131 respectively in 1784 and in the same year received 100 acres each of a 200 acre grant, #1, on the Saint John River at Wickham (in 1991 this property belongs to the family of the late James Belyea). In 1813 Jacob Day received a grant, #15, in the 1st division, Crafts Cove, totalling 215 acres (in 1991 this property borders the left hand side of Belyea's Cove).
On 21 October 1794 John Day made his will. In it he names wife Hannah, sons Jacob, James, Henry and William. No daughters are named. The will was proved 24 January 1795 and inventory taken 27 January, 1795 by Elisha Case and John Watson. The value was £105.
On 19 March 1799, at Long Island, Queens County, Hannah Day married, as her second husband, Jacob Remsen. No further information has been found regarding her or her second husband.
John Day purchased the land at McDonald's point on 28 August 1788 for £12.10s from David Allston. This was one half of the original grant #5 which had been granted jointly to David Allston and Anderson Worden. The date other Day properties were sold could also be traced.
Of the sons of John and Hannah Day, Henry married Catherine Compton in 1790. William may have moved to Saint John and may have married Rhoda ? who died in 1812 aged 46. James Day may be the same as the James Day who lived in Westfield parish and who died in 1811. John Day may also have lived in Saint John.
