Dates of existence



Benjamin Worcester Prime (1805-1884) and his brother Thomas Merrell Prime (1800-1844) came to live in Dunham Township around 1820 [?]. The two families went to live in Brome, where Benjamin was a shoemaker and Thomas purchased the farm afterwards known as the Lyman Farmer place at the southeast corner of Brome, near the West Bolton line on the old Magog Road [Stagecoach]. There, he built a hotel, which became known as the Prime Tavern. Dr. Thomas Merrell Prime [Jr] (1836-1913) was born in Dunham and studied medicine in the U.S.A. He bought out the practice of Dr. Charles Cotton and lived in Brome until 1874, when he moved to Knowlton.
