Matthew PARK was born about 1725 in Northern Ireland. He died before 15 March 1814 at the age of 89 in Petite Riviere, Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. Granted lands at Petite Riviere November 7, 1771, [Crown Lands Index Sheet #40.] Petitioned with others of P.R. for use of La Have Islands as commons 1785. Died Petite Riviere prior to March 25, 1814, which is date of son Joseph's will. Children's order uncertain.
Malcolm Parks gives date of death as between 1812 and 1814.
"A General Return of the several Townships in the Province of Nova Scotia, the first day of January, 1767. indicates that very few, if any of the McNutt Irish settlers [whom I thought Matthew to be.] had stayed in the township of New Dublin. In 1766 there were only eleven Irish in the whole township; by 1770 there were thirty-one, of which twenty one were residents of Petite Riviere--the families of Patrick Porter, Matthew Park and James Park, and the bachelor or widower John Park--and fifteen of the thirty-one were members of the Park families. Therefore any inclination to assume that the Parks and Porters were survivors of McNutt's ill-fated settlement on 1762 is negated by a comparison of the 1766 and 1770 statistics, for in 1770 the Park families alone outnumbered the whole Irish population of the township in 1766. Des Brisay [History of Lunenburg County] was therefore no doubt correct when he stated that James Park "established himself in Petite Riviere in 1769." information that he would have received from James' grand-daughter, Ann Park of East La Have.

*For information on other Park notes please see under James Park Family.*

Note: Matthew and James cannot have been any closer that first cousins, as too many children of both families intermarried in the first and later generations.

Gravestone in the old cemetery in Mill Village reads "Nathan" and R.F.K adds "stone cutter's error?" Perhaps Matthew's second name was Nathan and he was called so to distinguish him from other Matthew Parks then living?
