Biographical history

Charles and Cassandra Inglis were prominent Mahone Bay, N.S. residents who lived on the town's main street and operated the C.J. Inglis store. The couple had two children, Clara Grace (Grace) and Percival Wellington (Percy). Both children resided in the family home in Mahone Bay for the majority of their lives. Grace married John Quinlan and the couple had only one child, Clara Grace (Clara) who was born in 1895. Percy never married, nor did his niece Clara. As an adult Percy became an avid antique china and furniture collector. The focal point of the Inglis/Quinlan family was the Mahone Bay home and store, where three generations were raised, worked and entertained.

Custodial history

The fonds was salvaged from the Inglis-Quinlan house by Mahone Bay Settlers Museum in 1988, after the death of Clara Quinlan, when the remaining contents were being sold or discarded.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of correspondence, financial records, legal documents, academic records, photographs, collection records, and diaries pertaining to the lives of members of the Inglis-Quinlan family. The fonds comprises six series: Photographs, Inglis-Quinlan Store Records, Charles and Cassandra Inglis Records, Grace Quinlan Records, Percy Inglis Records, and Clara Quinlan Records.
