Hi Peter,
From the book "History of Queens County, N. B., by E. Stone Wiggins, 1876" comes the following:

Bailey, Benjamin, a U.E. Loyalist, born in England, setled in the American States, and joined the side of the Royal party during the revolution. He came to St. John in 1783, and subsequently settled on the Oromocto. He afterwards moved to the Grand Lake and settled on Fanjoy's Point, where he died. His wife was a daughter of Judge Wanty and sister of Captain Benjamin Wanty of the Royal Navy. His children were James, Joseph, Mary, Pheobe, William, John, Sarah, Susanna and Esther. John is now living at Newcastle, Queen's, aged 86 years. His wife's maiden name was Mary Duette. His sons were Abraham, John, Giedeon, Charles and Luke. Abraham and Duncan, sons of Abraham, are comfortable farmers. Gideon was born at Oromocto, Feb. 25th, 1817. He moved to Grand Lake in 1839 and has since been one of the leading lumber merchants of Queen's County. He has for several years been Lieut. Colonel of the militia and President of the Agricultural Society. He was elected representative to the Assembly in 1865, but was defeated the following year on the question of Confederation. He was re-elected in 1870, and sat till April, 1872, when he was called to the Legislative Council. Mrs. Bailey is the daughter of the late Capt. Arthur Branscombe.
