Notes for Ann (Nancy) Givan
listed in land deeds with her husband sometimes as Ann and sometimes as Nancy55
conflicting birth years of 1792 and 1813 in Ham’s files12
After her death, a brigantine ship named the Nancy Givan was built in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in 183744 which was owned by her husband Bernard L. Kirkpatrick and must have been named thus to commemorate her.
from Acadian Recorder, Sat. Feb 5, 1831:
“married 25 Jan. in Wolfville by Rev. Mr. Clarke: Mr. B. L. Kirkpatirck, Pictou / Ann, only d/o late William Givan”77 It’s unclear why it says “only d/o” since presumably her sister Mary was alive at the time.
large table-like gravestone at Grand Pre reads: “Sacred to the Memory of Ann Kirkpatrick wife of Bernard L. Kirkpatrick who departed this life on the 4th day of February 1833 in the 30th year of her age. Distinguished by the virtues which adorn her sex, and by the graces which exalt the Christian”57
