The following is hardly complete, but may be mostly correct and offer a start.

Thomas.

Capt. JAMES EWART b. Ireland ca. 1815-21, m. MARY JANE MOORE (b. Ireland ca. 27MAY1820 (1821, ca. 1817), d. Pisarinco, Saint John Co., NB 3NOV1901 age 84 years).
James could be the James Ewart b. ca. 1836 in the 1851 census of St. James Parish, Charlotte Co., NB as:

Ewart George M Husband 54 Irish Farmer 1823
Ewart Mary F Wife 54 Irish 1823
Ewart Mary J. F Daughter 25 Birth
Ewart Catharine F Daughter 21 Birth
Ewart Eliza F Daughter 18 Birth
Ewart James M Son 15 Birth
Ewart William M Son 12 Birth

This seems unlikely as, in Lancaster Parish, Saint John Co., NB in 1871, James Ewart, a seaman, was age 50 and b. Ireland. Mary, also 50, was b. Ireland. There are several Stinson households on the same page. Especially, next door, John (75) and Jane (60) Stinson. Agnes Stinson (7), lives with her parents, William (35) and Martha (35) Stinson a couple of households removed.
The Ewart children in 1871 were James (21), Louisa (25) and Jane (18). An intriguing element is that James and Louisa are given as b. Ireland, while Jane was b. NB. This suggests that the Ewart's may have arrived roughly 1858-60? They were on page 65, at the bottom of the page, and on page 66 the next entries were Mary Doherty (6) and Sarah Doherty (2). The page appear, therefore, to be out of order and other children would have been listed without surnames. The Doherty parents, for example, are at the bottom of page 63. The remaining Ewart children, John (14), Samuel (12) and George (10), actually do appear on p. 66 but the surname has been transcribed as 'Evert'.
In 1881, in Lancaster Parish, James Ewart (63) and Mary J. (60) had Samuel (21), George (18), Annie (32, b. Ireland, married), Mary (5), Samuel (2) and John (OCT1880). Annie (b. ca. 1849) appears to have been a daughter-in-law, and Mary and Samuel her children.
James Ewart (76) and Mary Jane (70) have with them, in Lancaster Parish, in 1891, a daughter, 'Luise' (44) and a son, George (27) with a 'lodger', Ida Ewart (5). James is a sea captain. Louise is transcribed as 'Luise' can be misleading, but is female. As, in 1891, he was a fisherman and farmer, I assume he skippered a fishing vessel. Ida seems to be also the Ida (50 listed with a widow, Mary Ewart (41, b. Ireland) who also had 'Johney' (14), Willie (12), 'Jennie' (10), Annie (7) and Maggie (3). I would guess that Mary (b. ca. 1850) was Annie in 1881 (b. ca. 1849), that she was James' widow, and that Ida was the granddaughter of James, Sr. and of Mary Jane. 'Johney' b. ca. 1877 would be John Moore Ewart b. Lorneville 18DEC1876, s/o James and Mary Anne (Wilson) Ewart.
Children:
1. ANNA MARIE EWART b. ca. 1840, m. 17SEP1863 HENRY BAIRD (b. ca. 1841).
I assume that Anna was the Miss Ewart of Pisarinco who m. Henry Baird, and that they are the couple in Lancaster Parish in 1871. Especially as they lived next to the Ewart's in 1871. Since the next child I have, so far, is Louis (ca. 1846-7) there may have be one or two more children. One of these appears to be Mary Ewart. Another may have been Isabella Ewart, m. James Galbraith.
2. MARY EWART, m. JOHN WILSON.
3. ISABELLA EWART, m. JAMES GALBRAITH.
4. LOUISA (LOUISE) EWART b. 17NOV1846 (ca. 1846-7).
5. JAMES EWART b. ca. 1850, m. MARY ANNE (ANNIE) WILSON (b. Ireland 10JUN1849 (ca. 1849-50); m. 2nd 26JAN1893 John Engalls (Ingalls, Inglis), d/o William and Mary (Craig) Wilson.
6. WILLIAM JOHN EWART b. Ireland or Lorneville, Saint John Co., NB 5AUG1857 (ca. 1857, MAY1858 in 1911), d. 26MAR1936 age 79 years, buried Lorneville Cemetery, Saint John Co., NB, m. Carleton Parish, Saint John Co., NB 28SEP1880 AGNES M. STINSON (b. Lorneville, Saint John Co., NB 17SEP1864, d. 240 Kings St., Saint John West, Saint John Co., NB 1JAN1912, buried Lorneville Cemetery, Saint John Co., NB), d/o William and Martha (Wilson) Stinson.
William Ewart (34) and 'Agness' (26) lived near his parents in Lancaster Parish in 1891. He was a fisherman, given as b. Ireland. children were William (11), Lewis (8), James (6), 'Marther' (4), Ethel (2) and 'Henery' (2 months).
The family was in Lancaster Parish in 1901 and 1911. the 1901 birth-dates seems surprisingly accurate.
Children:
61. WILLIAM S. EWART b. 25DEC1880 (DEC1881), d. 1FEB1921, buried Lorneville Cemetery, Saint John Co., NB.
62. SAMUEL LEWIS (LEWIS SAMUEL, SAMUEL M.) EWART b. Lorneville, Saint John Co., NB 21JAN1883, d. Saint John General hospital, Saint John, Saint John Co., NB 23SEP1958 age 75 years, 8 months and 2 days, buried Lorneville Cemetery, Saint John Co., NB, m. 1st 17SEP1914 KATHERINE (KATE, KATIE) MANCHESTER CURRIE (CURRY) (b. Sand Cove 28DEC1882 (ca. 1883), d. 25JUN1923 age 40 year, 5 months and 28 days, buried Greenwood Cemetery, Saint John Co., NB), d/o Frederick (Fred) W. and ALice (Annie) Currie; m. 2nd 15APR1925 ADA MAY CAMPBELL (b. 1892, d. 1974, buried Lorneville Cemetery, Saint John Co., NB), d/o John and Margaret (Maggie) (Fraser) Campbell.
When he died, Samuel was superintendent of water and sewage for the City of Saint John up to 1946.
A son may have been George M. Ewart d. 28AUG1911 age 3 months.
Frederick W. Currie (1842-29APR1920) was from Amherst, NS. In Lancaster Parish, Saint John Co., NB, in 1891, however, he was given as b. NB although his father was b. NS. His mother was b. NB. He was age 44 as was his wife, Alice (b. Ireland), and Katie was age 8. Other children were Jane (19), 'Elsworth' (15) and Alice (12). Not far off was a family of James (55) and Elizabeth (49) Manchester with a daughter, Catherine (25). The parents were born in England so I don't think there was a relationship, but Katie may have been named for the daughter. Alice d. Lancaster Parish 2JUN1901 age 54 years. Elsworth L. Currie d. 5JUL1892 age 16 years and 10 months. Alice Bella Currie b. ca. 1879, d/o Fred and Alice Currie, m. 15JAN1900 Joseph Leonard Sweet. Kate Currie was a witness to the marriage. Alice B. Sweet d. a few months later on 25AUG1900 of blood poisoning.
Fred appears to be the Frederick Wm. Curry who m. Saint John Co., NB 9AUG1870 Alice A. Warnock. He was from Carleton Parish and she was from Lancaster Parish. Frederick Curry (26) and Alice (24) lived in Albert Ward, Saint John, Saint John Co., NB in 1871. It was indicated that they had married NOV1870; which would not appear to be wholly accurate
I cannot find them in 1901, but in Lancaster Parish in 1911 there was a 'Fredrick' Currie b. MAY1845 with a wife, Sara (JUN1859).

In WWI James served in the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry; one of the foremost infantry units in Canada or, indeed, in the war. They were amongst the first overseas, saw heavy action and survival was remarkable. He was transferred from the 140th Battalion CEF (which he had joined 17SEP1915) 6MAR1917, wounded 9APR1917 (Assault on Vimy Ridge or the Arras offensive) and sent home due to illness or wounds 20APR1917. The PPCLI war diary for 6MAr1917 says that the received a, "Draft of 95 men from Can. Ent. Bn.", or from the Canadian Entrenching Battalion. James may have been delighted not to have been digging trenches but likely to have found himself digging tunnels followed by a brief, but very exciting, military career.
