  • Name Samuel Nevers 
    Notes 
    • Samuel Nevers came with his family from Massachusetts to NB in the early 1760s, when he was a child, and settled at Maugerville in Sunbury County. He lived there most of his life, and when he died in 1827 he left an estate appraised at more than seven thousand pounds, making him one of the most prosperous inhabitants of the area at that time.

      Esther Clark Wright, in her “Planters and Pioneers, NS, 1749-1775 (Hantsport, NS: Lancelot Press Ltd., 1978), identifies Phinehas Nevers’ wife as Mercy, with a question mark, but there is no doubt. Proof that he was son of Phinehahas and Mercy Nevers is contained in a deed dated 9 Apr 1788 which identifies his mother as Mercy Nevers. The fact that he and Isabella named a son George Phinehas Nevers, and his brother John named a daughter Mercy Nevers, lends support to this relationship.
