  • CA DMA CR-42
  • Fonds
  • 1883-1944

The fonds consists of an accounts journal and seventeen daily journals kept by John Honeyman (1845-1926) and his son Douglas Ramsey Honeyman (1886-1968) from 1883 to 1944, which describe farming the Honeyman family farm at Eden, Manitoba, from 1883 to 1895, the farm at Gulfside near Port Guichon from 1896 to 1902, and the East Delta farm from 1903 to 1914 and 1920 to 1944. Entries from 1883 to about 1905 were made by John Honeyman, and from 1906 to 1944 by Douglas Honeyman. John Honeyman's daily entries are more detailed than those made by Douglas and record farm work and family activities, especially those of the Honeyman children. The journals describe visits with family and neighbors, trips to New Westminster and Vancouver, weather observations, illness, entertainment and social activities. Entries about farm work record seasonal activities for tilling, planting and harvesting grains and potatoes; raising livestock; improving and building farm buildings, fences, etc.; and employing workers such as East Indians and Chinese and their wages. Entries also refer to community political events and frictions, and to work done on shared community infrastructure such as dykes, drainage ditches and roads.
