"Irish Lumberman Farmer" by Joseph A. King 973 049 162 KIN Fitzgerald Herigan and Others

New Brunswick Archives has Family History recorded for one Joseph Beek Reference MC1 County YO NO (York and Northumberland)
Because it lists the 2 counties, York and Northumberland, I believe it refers to this Joseph Beek b. 1800.

On marriage to Ann Leslie, both of Ludlow, Joseph was listed as a farmer but it is believed he was the only bookkeeper on the St. John's River and went from one lumber camp to another closing books.
Mrs. Munsey's grandmother remembers him as being very stern. He was said to be proud and arrogant.

An old and respected resident of our Parish died last week. We refer to the late Joseph Beek, who has been a resident of Miramichi for upwards of forty years. Mr. Beek was a native of Ireland and came to this country when quite a boy. After residing in the city of Fredericton for many years where his father held the office of Registrar of Deeds, he came to the Miramichi, when this part of the country, in which he settled, was little better than a wilderness. Here where he has resided ever since. He was a brother to James Beek, Esq. of Fredericton, Auditor General of Public Accounts. Mr. Beek was a man of considerable culture, a great reader, and a man of broad and liberal views. Much lamented by his many relatives and friends, he is "One the more to thousands who have gone before." Another name is added to the list of the departed pioneers of our country who are fast passing away. Having the approbation of a good conscience, and being fortified by the sacraments of religion, his end was peace, happy in the hope of immortal life beyond the grave.

Joseph BEEK m Annie LESLIE, probably in area of Douglas, York County,NB, and had daughter Sarah b. at Douglas 1845, m. John Wellington Gilbert at Douglas 19 Sep 1867. Does anyone have details of this family? (This is my g-g grandmother, whose maiden name on her death certificate I was mistakenly reading as Sarah Beck.) To anyone who wasted their time attempting to locate a Sarah Beck for me, I apologize.

Joseph Beek has as issue a Herbert Beek , b. about 1866. It seems unlikely that he is the father, more likely a grandfather and the child is the son of a daughter perhaps unmarried.

This is a Keystone Page of Beek Family, (also see John Beek) Included here are info that applies to Beeks who may or may not be related... to be determined.

It is noted that there were Beek families of English extraction in Bermuda from the 1600's who subsequently moved to USA and elsewhere in the Caribbean. There are also German and Dutch Beek families that moved to the US and Canada. Joseph Beek is of the England to Ireland(1600's) to Canada (1822?) line.

Birth location, for Joseph Beek taken from James S. Beek biography of 1881, given as Cork City, Cork Co. Ireland also Ballymodan Parish, Bandon, Co. Cork Ireland, (not confirmed)

Word of mouth report from Mrs. Mildred Wood Munsey of Weston MA USA received 1980. Her mother reported that the family came from Bandon Ireland. She had been told that they were quite wealthy, owned a candle factory . The factory was ransacked by robbers and that was the reason they left. She was told the older boys had attended the University of Dublin. (subsequent information from University of Dublin did not confirm this, however the Cork area had advanced schooling locally.)

Royal Gazette Index collected by an unknown family genealogist notation as follows: Joseph Beek (b. 1776) appointed Registrar of Deeds and Wills York Co 7 Nov. 1838 page2.
Joseph Beek was believed to buried in the Old Graveyard in Fredericton in 1858. He joined his second wife Elizabeth Nixon who predeceased him in 1838. page 23. (this is not confirmed)
1851 census has Joseph Beek living with his son Henry S. Beek in York Co. New Brunswick CN, age 75 Registrar of County arrived in Canada 1821. Irish Immigrants to NB. census 1851 lists Joseph Beek alias Beck arrived 1825 age 75 NB location Fredericton.

1851 Census list indicated Irish Immigrants to New Brunswick (year of entry conflicts with other documentation)
Although misspelled Beck, it is clear that Joseph Beek family is included.
Beck Francis entry 1830 age 43 Methodist location St. Stephen, Irish origin: Cork
Beck Henry S. entry 1821 age 34 location Fredericton
Beck James S. entry 1823 age 37 Anglican location Fredericton
Beck Joseph entry 1831 age 50 Methodist location Blissfield
Beck Joseph SR entry 1825 age 75 location Fredericton
Beck Margaret J. entry 1830 age 43 Methodist location St. Stephen origin: Cork
Beck Olivia entry 1825 age 30 location Fredericton.
(there were 3 others Thomas, James, Margaret who were Roman Catholic so not included)
(Comment, Gloria Beek: I believe the family particularly James tried to play down its Irish origin. I think politically James "Scott" Beek tried to assume a Scottish or English origin, hence the choosing of a middle name Scott and perhaps the incorrected misspelling of Beek to Beck or a clerical error by enumerator)
Interesting they did not give place of origin except Francis and his wife Margaret J who came in 1830. Also the family myth about their factory being destroyed by the Irish in Cork area may have been used as well to gain sympathy for the family that was so prominent and publicly involved. Also the Joseph Beek b. 1776 middle name Maitland may have been added to enhance Scottish relationship to a prominent family. )

He was 21 years as registrar of deeds and wills . He was a native of the City of Cork Ireland.

James Brown's Journal p. 241 shelf 22 Provincial Archives of NB gives death of Joseph Maitland Beek b. 1766. Causes some confusion, because his second name was Maitland. (not confirmed) His daughter Eliza married a Maitland, not another connection to the Maitland name can be found, but Henry S. Beek named one of his sons Joseph Maitland Beek Connections to the Maitland family and Scotland may go back further than presently known.
