Saint John Ships and Their Builders
In 1816, George Thomson, master of the brig ‘Jessie' brought a load of potatoes to Saint John. Due to the unusual cold wet weather, crops were not growing in New Brunswick. Thomson belonged to a family of shipowners and shipbuilders of Dumfries and he may have been impressed with the amount of shipbuilding materials available in New Brunswick as he began to build ships at L'Etang, a small harbour in the parish of St. George, Charlotte County. * * * John McMorran and James Dunn had been building ships at Dorchester for a few years before they came to Saint John.
