County : Westmorland
Place : Moncton
Newspaper : The Times
“The next settler of whom the writer has been able to get any record was the late William STEADMAN, father of present Judge James STEADMAN of Fredericton, who came to the Bend of the Petitcodiac from Cornwallis, N.S. in the year 1801 or 1802 and built a house near the river bank at the foot of Pleasant street. That building was burned down, but the old house now standing there on its site, is the oldest structure now extant in the town of Moncton. Mr. Steadman was in his day an active business man and his sons, John STEADMAN, James STEADMAN, and William STEADMAN were also up to within a few years ago identified with the business and politics of the county. William Steadman accumulated a large amount of property at the Band, having purchased a large tract of land along Church street, extending back to the Robertson Creek and also the Steadman farm on the Mountain road, purchased by Messrs. Peters a few years ago and divided into lots. He died in the old house on the Mountain road some years ago. The late John Steadman was connected with many mining enterprises in which unfortunately he was not altogether successful, while James entered the ranks of the legal profession.”51
