NEW BRUNSWICK Maple Ridge Orange Lodge Protection Lodge No. 119 Ribbon with original envelope from Whitehead and Hoag (no suspender)
The Orange Order was long established in New Brunswick, such that riots surrounding Orange marches occurred in the 1840s (a period of Irish mass immigration) in New Brunswick. Even tiny Woodstock, NB experienced a riot in 1847 on The Twelfth (July 12, the anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne), near a now-vanished Orange Hall at the corner of Victoria and Boyne streets. The height of conflict was a riot in Saint John, NB, on July 12, 1849, in which at least 12 people died. The violence subsided as Irish immigration declined.
