We return to the children of the first mentioned William Black.

SARAH, the eldest daughter, and the only daughter who came from England with her father, was married to John Chapman, who also came from England with his father.

They settled at Dorchester, where they owned a large block of land, which in time became a very valuable farm, and is now owned by various persons, among whom are several descendants of Mr. Chapman.

Their family consisted of four sons and two daughters, whose names were William, Mary, Richard R., John Stocks, Nancy, and Robert Barry.

WILLIAM, their eldest son, married Charlotte Turner, of Hopewell, and settled on a farm at Coverdale, at that time Westmorland, now Albert County, N.B. This farm in time was left in possession of his son, then of his grandson, and was considered one of the most valuable farms on the Petitcodiac River. The marsh is bounded on three sides by this serpentine river. William Chapman was a Justice of the Peace, and one of those who for a considerable length of time was authorized to solemnize marriages. He was also zealous in religious matters, and occasionally preached to the people. He had one son and seven daughters, named John Nelson, Sarah, Charlotte, Anna, Almira, Elizabeth, Bathsheba, and Margaret.

ROBERT BARRY CHAPMAN, the youngest son of the first mentioned John Chapman, was left by his father the owner of a fine farm, which had been his old home. He entered warmly into politics, and was elected a member of the Legislature of New Brunswick.

The peculiar circumstances of this election call for some notice here. The County of Westmorland was represented by four members. At the close of the election spoken of Mr. Chapman stood third. Mr. Botsford--now Judge B.--fourth, and Robert Gilbert, of Dorchester, fifth. The difference in the number of votes between the three was quite small. Mr. Gilbert, feeling humiliated at his position, demanded a scrutiny, not as is customary, of the votes of the lowest on the polls, but of those of Mr. Chapman, who was further in advance of Mr. Botsford than Mr. Botsford was in advance of Mr. Gilbert. Various were the conjectures respecting this matter. Many, however, felt satisfied it was perfectly understood between them. A committee was struck in the House of Assembly to try the appeal, when the committee found it next to impossible to decide, there being a very large number of French voters, many of them of the same name and others so singularly spelled that they therefore recommended the holding of another election.

The writer is not surprised that the committee could not decide the election, for he has seen the list of voters for the parish of Dorchester and found about a score of persons of the same name, except with slight variations in initials, in some cases, e.g., Taddy White, Taddy White, Taddy S. White, Taddy N. White, Taddy W. A. White, Taddy White, Taddy White, Taddy R. White, Taddy E. L. White, Taddy White, Taddy White, etc., etc.

The respective friends of these gentlemen became quite excited,--those of Mr. Chapman that he should have been allowed to keep his seat until it should be proved that he was not duly elected. The result was that Albert J. Smith, a young lawyer, now Sir Albert J., came into the field, and was elected.

After this, Robert B. Chapman sold his farm and removed to Rockland, Westmorland Co., with his son, Robert A., who engaged in shipbuilding. He married Margaret, daughter of Andrew Weldon, Esq., of Dorchester.
