Annie Elizabeth Porter

This report includes only the first five generations of the Nova Scotia Planter descendants. To learn more about the early descendants of Edmund Rice visit the Edmund Rice (1638) Association,.
     Annie Elizabeth Porter was born on 26 October 1876 at Esquimalt, BC.1 She was the daughter of John Porter and Mary Ovenston. Annie Elizabeth Porter married Arthur Reinforth Bent, son of John Zenus Bent and Famichie Gesner, on 3 April 1897 at Victoria, BC; they were married in the old Methodist Church, corner of Pandora Avenue and Broad Street, then used as a Salvation Army barracks. Mr. Bent was the band sergeant and Annie Porter a cornet player. Adjutant Clark read the Salvation Army Marriage Service. Married at 8:00 on a Saturday night.2 Annie Elizabeth Porter died on 6 April 1963 at Victoria, BC; of a cerebral hemorrhage.1 She was buried at Ross Bay Cemetery, Block 0, Plot 76, West of Road P (reopened.)
     As of 3 April 1897,her married name was Bent.2 She and Arthur Reinforth Bent resided in May 1915 at 2574 Graham Street, Victoria, BC.3
     June (Martin) Perry reports: Annie Porter Bent played in first Salvation Army band in 1896, maybe earlier. Her grandmother, Ann Ovenstont, lived in James Bay. She was born in a house in Esquimalt and attended Central School, Victoria, BC. She crocheted a table cloth of the Last Supper before her 80th birthday.
     She remembers as a child standing on the wooden bridge where the causeway now stands and watching the Indians in their canoes paddle under the bridge en route from their reservation to the city. She would walk across this bridge which was built on piles on the way to her grandmother's home in James Bay. Transportation out that way was confined to horse and buggy. She had an age colored framed picture of old Esquimalt which was her prized possession. Her aunt lived on the hill. St. Paul's Church was still in the original place, but she said it was moved up the road when the Navy expanded.
     June (Martin) Perry remembers her from an early age. She died when June was 16. "I remember her as being strong willed. Looking back on it I am sure it was because of her advanced age. Unfortunately I never knew her as a younger person. She always had some crochet in her hands. She lived in her later years with her daughter May and husband Harold Gregson at 474 West Burnside Rd. She had terrible arthritis in her hands and they were misshapen, which is a Porter trait. I don't know what she died of other than senility and old age. If only I had questioned her about her history, what I could have learned!"
     A newspaper article quoted her as being born in the "old village", referring to Esquimalt: "She was born in a little white house on the main thoroughfare that ran through the village to the dockyard. In an interview once she said she could go back to the days of transportation going only as far as the Halfway House and then via King's stage to the village and dockyard. She remembered when a gully ran through the middle of downtown Victoria at Douglas and Johnson Streets."

This report includes only the first five generations of the Nova Scotia Planter descendants. To learn more about the early descendants of Edmund Rice visit the Edmund Rice (1638) Association,.
     Abraham Chute Potter was born circa 1848 at Bear River, NS.3 He was the son of John Douglas Potter and Louisa Chute.2 Abraham Chute Potter married Lavinia Clarissa Morse, daughter of Abner Morse and Mary Purdy, on 9 December 1874 at Bear River, NS.3 Abraham Chute Potter died on 2 September 1876 at Bear River, Digby Co, NS. There are conflicts concerning Abraham's death. An Abraham Potter is listed in the town records of Smith's Cove as having died in 1876 at age 28. Nova Scotia Vital Statistics for Digby County records an Abraham Potter born in 1848 and died 4 Sep 1876 at Bear River, the son of James Potter. The Clementsvale Baptist Church Minute Books list his death as 2 Sep 1876. An administration of the estate of Abraham P. Potter of Hillsburgh, dated 8 Sep 1876, is also recorded. It is likely that all records are for the same person. William E Chute records the death date as 2 Sep 1877. Your author suggests that the Clementsvale Baptist Church record is the most likely record.4 He was buried at Clementsvale Baptist Cemetery, Clementsvale, Annapolis Co, NS.5
