Descendents of John Gregg [also Grieg] (ca. 1792 - 20 Feb 1868)
and Wife Mary (ca. 1791 - 28 Aug 1846)

Second Immigrant Generation

2. James b. 8 May 1817, bap. 28 May 1817 Cheviot Street Presbyterian Church, Wooler.   James was living with his father in 1851.   He appears in Hutchinson's Directory of 1865-66 as a fisherman, and in 1867-68 as a farmer.   The Lovell directory of 1871 also records him as a farmer on Campobello.   He died 14 May 1876 aged 50, according to his stone at St Anne's church, but the age is incorrect.   He appears not to have married.

1871 Campobello census:

GREG James 47 England Farmer
  Esther 43 England  

3. Andrew b. 21 November 1818, bap. 20 December 1818 Cheviot Street Presbyterian Church, Wooler.   Andrew may not have gone to Campobello with his family, as he was living in Fredericton when he was married 7 August 1842 to Mary P. PICK of that city, by George Coster, the Anglican minister there.   The witnesses were his sister Jane Gregg and John Lawson (York County , NB, Marriage Register B. 1837-1850).   This was the only Gregg marriage in York County in that time period.

The 1851 Census for Fredericton has:

Andrew Gregg   31 Scotch Painter Immig. 1839
Mary wife 28 English   1835
John   7      
Harriett   5      

Andrew died 11 August 1856 aged 35 and was buried in Fredericton Rural Cemetery.   Mary died 18 December 1899 aged 77.
