Name of creator
Freeman Tupper was born in Milton, Nova Scotia, c. 1889 to Henry and Teresa Tupper. He married Verta Laura Freeman in 1913. From 1908-1909 he studied engineering at Dalhousie University, working later as a land surveyor in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, where he also served as Justice of the Peace. He had a strong research interest in the history of the Liverpool area and in the broader history of Nova Scotia.
Copies of official deeds, probate records, certificates and documents from the most recent accession were donated by Mrs. Aaron F. Churchill of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, in September 1973. Donors of previous accessions are unknown.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of research notes and materials on the history of Nova Scotia and, more specifically, Liverpool and its prominent families, including family trees and hand-drawn annotated maps. Also included are many manuscripts on a variety of topics relating to Tupper's historical research, ranging from John Cabot and the early explorers to lesser-known local events in the history of Nova Scotia. Also present is a small collection of personal diaries and copies of deeds and legal documents from the Tupper family.
