Chase Family of Kings County Nova Scotia

This is from a newspaper article in Canada September 13 1933 and from this information I found bits of information on the Chase family who came to Nova Scotia from New England. They are the descendants of the Chase family who settled Massachusetts.
They lived in the King's County area were they operated mills, tanneries, orchids, farms, and engaged in many other enterprises and trades. They were also Quakers. Please post or e-mail me if you have any information or pictures. Thank You!







From Halifax Citizen, Thursday, April 26, 1866 LIFE SIZE PHOTOGRAPHS. -- W. Chase, No. 159 Hollis Street, opposite Club House, Halifax, has now in use at his Gallery the latest and most approved Solar Camera in the city of Halifax for enlarging all styles of small pictures. Those having Daguerrotypes, Ambrotypes, and Photographs of their deceased friends and relatives can have them enlarged up to life size, and furnished at a lower price than at any other gallery. Mr. C.'s experience in Photography enables
him to give the public a more artistic style of work than can be obtained elsewhere in the city.

Universal Male Suffrage: Nova Scotia, 1854
If they were over 21 and had lived in the colony at least five years, these Yarmouth merchants (photographed by Wellington Chase in the spring of 1855) were eligible to vote under the 1854 electoral law. Property ownership entitled recent immigrants to vote as well. "Universal" male suffrage did not include "Indians," however, and it lasted only until 1863, when property ownership again became a requirement.



Inauguration of the Welsford-Parker Monument, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, 17 July 1860. Chase, the clever photographer succeeded in taking an excellent photographic view of the whole scene, a copy of which we have no doubt many people will hasten to secure, as a memento of the day and the event."
