Biographical history

Ambroise Amiro was born 2 September 1818 at East Pubnico, Nova Scotia. He was the son of Louis Amiro (or Amirault) and Marguerite d'Entremont. Amiro was a well-known shipbuilder, who built two of the three brigantines in Pubnico Harbour, the Arabella, and the Hatfield Brothers. He was also an inventor who devised a ship steering device and an inflating bag to raise sunken vessels. In 1835, Amiro married Angelique Foi d'Entremont and they had 7 children. Their eldest child, Anne, married H. Léander d'Entremont. Ambroise Amiro died 7 June 1896.

Custodial history

H. Leander d'Entremont bequeathed his collection to the Parish of West Pubnico, who in turn donated the documents to the archives in 2001.
