Text From Source: Daniel Dunham d. prior to 1821 possibly in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, or vicinity. He was a Tory and in 1780 left his wife and went to St. Johns, New Brunswick, leaving his youngest son with his wife. Bell's list shows that he reached Saint John in 1783 in Company 50 on the Neptune accompanied by one adult female, three children over 10, and two younger children.
If his wife did remain in New Jersey at this time with a son, the adult female could have been Daniel's daughter or daughte-in-law, and the youngest of the children could have been Daniel's grandchildren. Dunham Genealogy by Isaac W. Dunham says that Daniel and Catherine Dunham had at least four children. Other evidence suggests that there were at least six and possibly seven: Lewis, John and Sarah, all baptiszed in 1758; Campbell; David Alston, b. c1762; Jonathan, b. c1768; and perhaps Seth Campbell Dunham is the one said to have remained in New Jersey. Sarah would have been at least 25 in 1783, and could have been the adult female who accompanied Daniel. It is believed that she subsequently married a Wright.
Daniel Dunham received a town lot, Parrtown 687, at the comer of Orange and Wentworth Streets. He also received later land grants but was on the list of Freeman of the City in 1785 as a joiner. On 21 Dec 1821 the city lot Parrtown 687 of "Daniel Dunham, deceased" was sold by his "heirs at law" -- John Dunham and his wife Elizabeth, David Alston Dunham and his wife Mary, and Jonathan Dunham and his wife Elizabeth, to James Hendricks.

Text From Source: He was a Tory. He received town lot at Parrtown 1116 at Saint John, but sold it after moving to Parrsboro. (Generations, New Brunswick [Canada] Geneological Society publication, Issue 37, Sept 1988, p. 17, article by A. D. Gates, "Some Saint John Loyalist Dunhams.") He was mentioned in his mother's wilI and received the great Bible and a bed quilt. His wife, Susannah, received 1 pair of pillow cases.
Asher Dunham, Captain, b. c1745 in New Jersey, where he lived on a small farm at Hanover, Morris county. He had seen considerable military service in the previous War in America as a volunteer in the 80th Regiment of Foot, being present at the defeat of Ticonderoga and in the reduction of Canada. He joined the British army in November 1776 and within a month received a warrant to raise a Company for the New Jersey Volunteers. Dunham was ordered, under the command of Major Richard W. Stockton, to take post at Bennets Neck, with a small party of the new levies.
In February 1777 the party were taken prisoners by a superior body of the enemy and Dunham was
marched in irons from Princeton to Philadelphia jail. He was detained a prisoner in different jails until August 1778 when he was exchanged for Captain NathanIel Porter, of the New Jersey Continental Regiment. To his great astonishment he found, on his release, that all the Companies of the New Jersey Volunteers were filled with the required officers, and, on December 24, 1779, he was put on the Seconded list as Captain. His name appears on this list after the War, when
he had gone to St. John, New Brunswick. (Jones, pp. 67-8.)
