Could you tell me if James Dunn lived at 775 Thornton Ave by the train station?
Hi, no idea. Sir James Dunn was one of Canada’s most famous industrialists, and one of its wealthiest men, but he came from fairly humble origins in Bathurst. While he left the town at an early age to find his fortune, his mother remained there until her death in 1918. The biography written about him by his friend and fellow New Brunswicker Lord Beaverbrook, entitled “Courage”, begins with some recollections of Sir James’ family and boyhood in Bathurst.
