Bartholomew Green (printer)
Green married Hannah Hammond in 1724 and they had five children. He apprenticed with his father until he went on his own in 1725. Almost immediately he began printing the Boston Gazette which was a rival to his father's Boston News-Letter. He continued to print this newspaper until 1732. He also worked with the firm of Bushell, Allen and Green and developed a reputation for high quality printing.
A commission in the British army in 1744 appears to have adversely affected his business and in 1751 Green moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia to start a printing office. This became the first printing office in what is now Canada but Green died before it went into newspaper production. One of his partners, John Bushell, actually started the paper that Bartholomew had planned. It was named the Halifax Gazette.
