      According to "Churchill Family in America", Lemuel Churchill emigrated fr om Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1762 to Chebogue, Nova Scotia (which later b ecame known as Churchill's Landing). This was immediately after the e nd of the French and Indian Wars, the result of which was that England to ok possession of all of Canada. It is reasonable to suspect that English c olonists from elsewhere in the Americas would be attracted to new opportun ity in a newly peaceful Canadian territory. Lemuel, at about 40 years of a ge, appears to have been attracted to this chance for a new home.



      For the next three generations, this line of Churchills lived in Canad a. As you will see, Lemuel's greatgrandson, Nathaniel, returned to what h ad since become the United States 61 years later. Interestingly, Nathani el may have thought that he was still in Canada in 1824 rather than northe rn Maine since the boundary was not officially set until 1842.



      What follows is information on Lemuel's line for the next three generatio ns in Canada.



      Nathaniel Churchill (b. 9 Apr 1748 Plymouth d. 8 Dec 1820 New Brunswic k) = Elizabeth Rider (b 15 Apr 1752 Plymouth d. 7 Jan 1794 New Brunswic k) Married 24 Dec 1770



      Nathaniel Churchill (b 22 Nov 1773 Yarmouth, NS d 1850 Ontario) = Euni ce Kenney (b 17 Apr 1782 Oromocto, NB, Canada d 1859 Burford, Ontario) Mar ried 1797.



      Nathaniel Churchill (b 6 May 1799 Gagetown, Sudbury, NB d abt 1876 Washb urn, Aroostook, Me.) = Jerusha Freeman (b 1799 d 1833 Washburn but buri ed St. John, NB) Married 30 July 1822.......Nathaniel settled Washburn, Ar oostook, Maine in 1824.
