We heard from a distant relative who lived in upper Quebec province. However, I have to find her letter. I have found Brittain as a book keeper in the Halifax census from about 1860 or so. I believe his wife may have been named Charlotte as was a daughter and granddaughter (who was our grandmother). I think there was a son named Robert and I have a picture of the daughters, Margaret and Charlotte, as adults. It seems that some of the children went to Jamaica Plain, Mass (part of Boston). I actually have some old family pictures and they may represent members of the Spike family. I believe Robert's family has a connection to Bustin's Island which is part of Freeport ME. I actually have a genealogy of the Spike family who summered on Bustin's Island. I would like to hear more about the early Spike family and when they came to Canada. I do presume they came from England.
