HISTORY:The research was found with a collection of Jarvis family papers. The papers start with Captain Samuel Jarvis (1698-1779) of Long Island. Next, his eldest son, Samuel (1720-1783) of Connecticut, although he died in Long Island after being sent there by Revolutionists (he died of exposure). Next, his eldest son, Munson, who was the founder of the New Brunswick and PEI family branches. Next is William, Munson's youngest brother (1756-c. 1828), former Secretary appointed by Simcoe. William and Munson were first cousins to Stephen Jarvis, the line that is connected to the Skynner family and the Bradley family of Bradley Museum. See The Families of Merigold's Point, by Dorothy L. Martin, 1984.
