Ward Chipman and the Botsford plot


The Honourable Ward Chipman, Judge of the Supreme Court of New Brunswick 1803-1824, died and was buried in Fredericton. Later, the remains were taken to Saint John and re-interred.

Elizabeth, widow of Ward Chipman, very likely gave the vacant burial lot to her nephew, George Botsford, who resided in Fredericton.

Several tombstones and graves of the George Botsford family are where the Honourable Ward Chipman was originally buried.
