      Text: [Christopher Horsman, Jr. married Jane Colpitts on June 25, 1807. She was the d/o Robert John Colpitts, immigrant ancestor, and Margaret Wade, immigrant ancestor. Jane Colpitts had been born Oct. 3, 1786. Christopher Horsman, Sr. had received a grant of land on the north bank of the Petitcodiac, a few miles above Moncton, N.B. A report of the Crown Land Surveyor in 1788 listed Christopher Horsman, Sr., his son, William Horsman ( settled on the high land in back of his father ), and his son, Christopher Horsman, Jr. ( settled on Pollet River ). Christopher Horsman, Sr. was established in the area when the 3 sons of Robert John Colpitts settled above him in 1796. Robert had gone back to England to bring his family back to Canada, but the Revolutionary War delayed his plans. The land granted to Christopher Horsman, Jr. was issued in Oct. 1809 and called for 500 acres and was designated as Lot # 7.]
