John Storey was a Loyalist who arrived in Halifax shortly before 1785 where he worked in the Commissary Office. He was dispatched to Sydney, Cape Breton that summer with the first settlers to look after the provisions. He reported directly to Governor Des Barres so much of his work has been recorded. I have copies of his reports & problems. He later became an assistant surveyor and drew maps. I have copies of several of his maps. One, in colour is especially good of the Sydney site. it shows its buildings and streets. He later was a captain of several vessels which carried coal to Halifax. Easter was born on 1797 followed by John-1801,Alice & Jane (twins) 1802, Sarah-1804, Charles-1807 (His mother is Mary so the first wife must have died.), Anne-1808 and Mary-1810. In 1813 they are given provisions because they were in "much distress". I quess they soon moved to Halifax area but I have no proof. Charles (my relative) later moved to the Springhill area of Nova Scotia where the next 4 generations lived.
If you have any further question, just ask. Do you know what happened to any of the other children?
