Researching Flemming/Fleming - Nova Scotia Canada and Stewart/Stuart, New Brunswick, Canada

Journal by DonF

James Flemming (1741 - 1829) and his wife Isabella Vance (1750 - 1832) arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on the ship "Hopewell) in 1761. They wintered in Halifax and then moved to the Folly Village (now Glenholme) area in Colchester County in the spring. He was the first British settler to farm this area.

Adam Stewart (1812 - 1875) and his wife Abegail Fardon Stymiest (1813 - 1906) were both born in Tabusintac, Northumberland County, New Brunswick, Canada. Adam's father, Alexander came to Tabusintac area in 1801 aboard the ship "Sarah". I know nothing about Alexander's wife.

I am primarily looking for the ancestors of these people. However, I do have a few holes in the research for the decendants.

Hello. This James Flemming was my grandfathers grandfather! His name was also James. He moved to Alberta in the early 1900's and settled near Kingman, Alberta. I would love to hear more info from you!

Hello. Amazing to get a response after all these years since I posted it! I may have more information for you but James Flemming is a very common name in our genealogy. Can you give me a little bit more to go on? Perhaps date of birth and death and locations. I gather that James Flemming (1741 - 1829) is the one you are referring to as your grandfathers grandfather. He is the first James in our genealogy but there are many after that. I am trying to pin down which one of the James Flemming's your grandfather was. Hope to hear back from you and maybe we can add more information to both of our genealogy.

Hello Don
I am assuming you are a Fleming male. Have you considered having a Y DNA test at FAMILY TREE DNA. My brother and I have both tested there and we had a cousin match with a Female who thought she was a descendant of a James Fleming/Flemming who moved from Ireland to a place called Fleming's Folly. If this is your line it would be interesting to see if your Y dna signature matches my brother at FTDNA
I hope to hear from you as my family were in Northern Ireland and came to Australia in the 1800s. Cheers Janet Flemming
