List of members
|Saint John||William Pagan|
- The members elected for St. John were known as the Government candidates. Another group of candidates, Tertuluss Dickinson, Richard Lightfoot, Richard Bonsall, Peter Grim, Jonathan Boggs and Alexander Reid, actually received a majority of the votes but were unsuccessful because of the actions of the sheriff in validating the votes. A petition from the voters of St. John was addressed to the governor but was ignored. History of New Brunswick, J Hannay
