Biographical history

Joseph Simpson Arnison was born in 1820 in Westward, Cumbria, England to Thomas John Arnison and Nancy Ann Simpson. The family emigrated to Pictou, Nova Scotia ca. 1820, where Thomas was part owner of the Eastern Stage Coach Company. In 1855 Joseph returned to Newcastle, England and married Isabella Coulson Natusin. By 1861 they had three daughters (Isabella, Anne Harris, and Margaret Wilson) and an infant son, Joseph Naters Arnison. A second son, Ralph Naters Arnison, died in 1867. Joseph was a glass manufacturer at the Newcastle Flint Glass Works, which was dissolved in 1874. He also ran the Sandyford Brewery until 1887 and operated an export business, shipping goods to a store he owned in Pictou, which he sought to sell in 1865. He passed away in Newcastle in July 1892.
