Following Jonathan P.

In researching Taylors, I have run across some individuals that are well documented. Jonathan P. Taylor is a great example. All these documents have been pulled from the PANB.

I first picked up his trail here:

Marriage notice, New Brunswick Courier (Saint John), 25 February 1837, m. Fredericton (York Co.), 16th inst., by Rev. Henry Daniel, Jonathan P. TAYLOR, merchant of Andover (Victoria Co.) / Mary Anne WINTER eldest d/o late Richard WINTER.; Daniel F. Johnson (http://archives.gnb.ca/ : online 15 July 2016); Daniel F. Johnson and PANB. Daniel F. Johnson : Volume 7 Number 115.

W.H. QUINN has favored the ‘Gleaner’ with a list of gentlemen and firms who were doing business in Fredericton in 1840 and of those who have done business here since then and passed away or made changes. Some of the gentlemen in this list are still living. Mr. Quinn’s name also appears in the list of the veterans, he having been continuously in business in this city since 1850. The names which do not appear under the heading of some street are chiefly those of men who did business on Queen Street, although a few of them may have done business in some other locality.
… Michael TAYLOR, tavern; … John and James TAYLOR, general store; … Jonathan P. TAYLOR & NORTH, watches and tinware; … [these were pulled from a long list so check the link or the original]
