Name of creator
The Nova Scotia Watermans were descended from Zenas Waterman (1762-1852), a soldier in the Revolutionary War who moved to Liverpool, Nova Scotia where he worked as a blacksmith and music teacher. His son and daughter-in-law later settled land in Queens County, and were among the first families to live in Middlefield, Nova Scotia, where they were involved in farming and the lumber business. Later generations of the Watermans family were involved in provincial politics, shipping and business.
Records were accessioned by the Archives in 1979; custodial history unknown.
