Hutchinson Directories

Introduction Introduction| Help Help| Search Page Search Page

Thomas Hutchinson published the first directory to include the names of the residents, i.e. Hutchinson's St. John Directory for 1863-64 (which included a directory of Portland). The first directory for the whole province was Hutchinson's New Brunswick Directory for 1865-66, Containing Alphabetical Directories of Each Place in the Province, with a Post Office Directory and an Appendix Containing Much Useful Information. This directory showed Thomas Hutchinson as the Publisher of the New Brunswick Directory and that he was boarding at the St. John Hotel in Saint John. In his Preface, Hutchinson promised that the second edition of the directory would be published in August 1867. A second edition, Hutchinson's New Brunswick Directory, for 1867-1868 was published. However, it was compiled by James A.T. Bird, so the involvement of Thomas Hutchinson is uncertain.

In the 1865-1866 directory, the listing of inhabitants is arranged first by county and within the county, alphabetically by community. By inputting all of these names, the Provincial Archives has created an alphabetical listing for residents of the whole province. To examine a microfilm copy of the directory see F-1412.
