FOREWORD 

The St. Lawrence river valley of Ontario, and in particular the 
Counties of Stormont and Dundas, was the ancestral home of the 
Loyalist Aults who first settled there during the American War of 
Independence — the Revolutionary War (1775-1783). Some of 
their descendants still reside in these two Counties, but many live 
elsewhere in Canada and the United States. 

In this Ault Genealogy the origins of the "Ault Family in Eu- 
rope" are traced back to around the year 1400 when they lived in 
northern France. The Ault connections were severed some 10 gen- 
erations later when a Johannes Ault of Amsterdam came to British 
Colonial America in 1753. 

The Genealogy then delves into the "Ault Family in North 
America," beginning with our Emigrant Ancestor Johannes Ault, 
and continuing through nine generations of Aults. In this process 
you will find that Johannes Ault and five of his sons — Nicholas, 
Conrad, John, Michael and Everhart — became Loyalists during 
the American Revolution. The Ault Genealogy is devoted to them 
and to their descendants. Four of Johannes's sons — Frederick, 
David, Henri and George — decided to remain in America and they 
are not included in this Genealogy. 

No evidence has been found in the Library of Congress, in the 
Archives of the United States, in the Public Archives of Canada, or 
in the Archives of Ontario that a Genealogy of the Ault Family 
has been published in North America. 

The individual genealogies in this book have been organized in 
a format adapted from the one recommended by the New England 
Historical and Genealogical Record. 

Ault descendants are urged to use the blank pages in the back 
of this book for their own initial efforts at keeping family records. 
I hope an Ault descendant will rewrite the Genealogy a few dec- 
ades from now. When and if you are ready to dispose of this book, 
please donate it to your Local, State or Provincial Genealogical 
Society, Historical Society or Library. 

There are some omissions in this genealogy that can be ac- 
counted for by the passage of time, the loss of records and the fail- 
ure of individuals to supply authorities with requested information. 
Some Aults have chosen to become anonymous and some have 
been placed in this category because their antecedents could not 

ii 



be documented. A few Aults exhibited a complete lack of interest 
in the Ault Genealogy and this is noted with regret. 

Finally — The Ault Genealogy has been compiled and written 
by an amateur whose previous writing experience has been limited 
to material published in Medical Journals and Textbooks. Some 
unavoidable errors may be encountered, but most of the informa- 
tion will be found to be reasonably correct.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS 

The task of searching, researching, compiling and writing The 
Ault Genealogy has been a pleasant endeavor. The work has ex- 
tended over a period of eight rewarding years — a brief time in 
genealogical circles. None of this could have been accomplished 
without the generous informative help of many Ault descendants 
and their friends. Their responses to my requests for information 
have been remarkable. Their correspondence has lightened the 
task, and their encouragement has provided this retired surgeon 
with many hours of sustained interest in the family. 

What might be termed historical information was obtained 
from Family Bible records of Births, Baptisms, Marriages, Deaths, 
News Items and Obituaries. Other sources were Church and Ceme- 
tery records, gravestone inscriptions and epitaphs. Information 
from Upper Canada Land records, Petitions, Vital Statistics and 
other records in the Archives of Ontario, and in the Public Archives 
of Canada was obtained from the efficient and helpful staff of 
both Archives. Their kindness and help are appreciated. 

What might be termed contemporary information was obtained 
by voluminous correspondence between the writer and many Ault 
descendants and their friends. Many shared their own family gene- 
alogies with me and they have my everlasting thanks for their gen- 
erosity. 

It would require many additional pages to thank each person 
for their response to my inquiries. I am grateful for the help. of 
the following who are listed in alphabetical order. Mrs. Ansel A. 
Ault, Mrs. Arthur Donald Ault, Bromwell Ault Jr., Charles Wesley 
Ault, John W. Ault, Laura Hattie Ault, Lawrence V. Ault, 
Mrs. Lloyd C. Ault, Mrs. Malcolm F. Ault, Orvill Ault, William G. 
Ault, Mrs. Wm. W. Ault, Mrs. D. Connell, Mrs. R. Falkingham, 
Mrs. D. Ferguson, Mrs. W.R. Kenny, Douglas McKendry, Mrs. C. 
McNabb, Mrs. J. Webber. 

I would be remiss if I failed to acknowledge that the Ault 
Genealogy could not have been written without help from and 
access to the following, listed in alphabetical order. 

The late Charles Albert Ault of Glendale, Ohio kindly brought 
his mother's typescript to Washington in June 1975. My copy of 
this has been an invaluable source of information. (See Helene B. 
Ault.) 



IV 



The late Mrs. Charles Sidney Ault of Rexdale and Ingleside in 
Ontario had a legendary memory and a wealth of information that 
she shared with contagious enthusiasm. The Aultsville Aults were 
of great interest to her. Our correspondence began in 1974 and 
ended when she died, at the age of 99, in July 1978. Her interest 
in the family never failed, and her enthusiastic support will not be 
forgotten. 

Dennis Edwin Ault and his mother, Mrs. Russell J. Ault, have 
my sincere thanks for sending considerable information on the 
Aults of Dundas Co. 

Earl Nelson Ault of Cornwall was always ready and able to 
provide me with information on the Aults of Cornwall, their de- 
scendants and the Ault Parks. The geographic changes in the area 
due to the development of Lake St. Lawrence were clarified by his 
welcome and helpful letters. 

I am indebted to Edwin F. Ault Esq. of Weston, Ont. for 
photocopies of the genealogical material in the Ault Family Bibles 
and for sending a rubbing and description of the 1867 Confedera- 
tion Medal that was awarded to the Hon. Samuel Ault M.P. The 
material from the Bibles has been of substantial value. 

My cousin, George Alfred Ault Esq. of Ottawa has my thanks 
for adding considerable vital information to the genealogy by ob- 
taining material on Upper Canada Land Grants and Petitions. 

The Helene Bromwell Ault two Vol. Typescript of 1950 has 
been an invaluable source of information. Vol. I titled "The Ault 
Family in Picardy" that she abstracted from the Ault Papers, has 
provided most of the information for the present chapter on "The 
Aults in Europe." The genealogical information she collected for 
Vol. II titled "The Ault Family in Ontario" formed the back- 
ground for 'The Aults in North America." Her Typescripts reflect 
the keen interest and the fine investigative capacity of Helene B. 
Ault. I am most grateful to the late Charles A. Ault II for provid- 
ing access to her important work. 

Marion Isabelle Ault of Buffalo contributed information that 
enabled me to complete this branch of the family and Mrs. Malcolm 
F. Ault sent material that enabled me to complete another branch 
of the family. My thanks have been sent to both contributors. 

Several Ault family lines have been completed through the 
kindness of Orvill Ault of Ottawa and I appreciate his help. 

A number of descendants in the Nicholas— Samuel Ault line 
were correctly placed in the genealogy as a result of corespond- 
ence with Samuel G.K. Ault of Winchester. My thanks for his help 



are again on record. 

Stanley Colborne Ault of Spokane kindly sent copies of gene- 
alogical material that his grandmother, Mrs. Nelson Ault of Corn- 
wall, began gathering in 1880. This, and information on the Aults 
of the Spokane area, helped me finish this line of Aults. I am 
grateful to Mr. Ault for his contribution. 

It was my good fortune to correspond with Mrs. Victor G. 
Ault of Spring Grove, Pa. during the early stages of this project. 
Her information, including an Alt family genealogy, made it possi- 
ble to separate the Ault and the Alt family lines and to save many 
hours of research time. Her assistance is acknowledged with great 
appreciation. 

William Upshur Ault and his mother Esther Upshur Ault 
Meacham kindly sent information and charts that enabled me to 
finish the Charles Alexander Ault line. 

Significant contributions to this genealogy were made by 
many relatives and friends of the Aults. Their names follow in 
alphabetical order. 

Mrs. Clyde Allan of Winnipeg sent in some fine family records 
that added to the Michael Ault line. 

Kenneth Annable of Ottawa supplied information that clari- 
fied the Annable — Ault relationship. 

Mrs. Ray Brown, an avid genealogist of Williamsburg, contrik 
uted information on several Ault lines and her reports on grave- 
stone inscriptions were especially helpful. 

Mrs. James Buels, my aunt Eva Ault, made numerous sugges- 
tions as to where I might locate valuable information. 

Considerable light was cast on the life of Johannes Ault by 
Wanda Burch of Johnstown, N.Y. Her abstracts of the Johnson 
Papers were revealing and helpful. 

Muriel Davidson has my sincere thanks for sending in copies 
of her father's records on the Everhart Ault family.! 

I am indebted to the Reverend Duncan Fraser of Johnstown, 
N.Y. for his personal letters that demonstrated his superb knowl- 
edge of the Mohawk valley, the Johnson Rent Roll, and the Kings- 
borough Patent. 

Mrs. Garnet Gilmour sent her father's compilation of the de- 
scendants of Everhart Ault. My sincere thanks have been sent to 
Mrs. Gilmour for this important information. 

I am indebted to George Hickey, a lifelong resident of Aults- 
ville and Ingleside, for his extremely helpful knowledge of Auits- 
ville and environs. His photographs of some of the Ault homes 

vi 



have been received with great appreciation. 

Information about the early Post Offices in Stormont County 
has been received with thanks from Robert Ketchum of Cornwall. 

Patrick McGurran and his wife Mavis Louisa Ault of St. Paul, 
Minn, supplied me with considerable material on the Dakota Aults 
and I thank them again for their time and records. 

Vital material from the early Church records on Births, Bap- 
tisms, Marriages and Deaths, prior to the time of Vital Statistics, 
was sent to me by Mrs. L. Merkley of Mesa, Arizona. I am most 
grateful for her help, for it enabled me to avoid some omissions 
in the records of the early Ault settlers. 

Mrs. Darreil Murray of Dallas developed a superb amount of 
important information on the Aults of North Dakota. It had the 
authentic aura that one would expect for a longtime resident for 
she was born and raised there and she had great personal knowl- 
edge of the Aults. She generously shared her information and she 
has my sincere and grateful appreciation of the voluminous amount 
of material that she sent to me. 

Miss Lynne O'Brien of Morrisburg has my thanks for kindly 
sending me Birth, Baptism, Marriage and Death lists from some of 
the Church Registers in Stormont and Dundas. 

Mrs. Patricia Thompson of Brinston generously shared her 
genealogy records. She also spent endless hours searching the Twp. 
files of Matilda and the County files of Dundas for information 
that was not available elsewhere. I am extremely grateful for the 
information that she sent to me, for her sustained efforts and for 
her great interest over the many years that we have corresponded. 

John S. Totzeck, Supt. of Fairview Cemetery in Amsterdam, 
N.Y. kindly sent information to me on members of the Ault and 
Franch families who are buried in that Cemetery. 

I am indebted to and thank the staffs of the following: —The 
Genealogical Division of the Library of Congress; The Public Ar- 
chives of Canada; The Archives of Ontario; The United Empire 
Loyalists Association of Canada via Elizabeth Blair; The Cincinnati 
Board of Park Commissioners via F.L. Payne, Director; McGill

THE AULT NAME 

The name d'Ault is of medieval French origin and it may be 
found in the records of very old French family names such as 
St. Valery, Dreux, Artois, Bourgogne, Cleves and others. The tran- 
sition from d'Ault to Ault appears to have taken place during the 
15th century. Although information is lacking on the relationship 
between the family named Ault and the village named Ault, now 
Ault-Onival, it is entirely probable that some of the Aults, who 
lived in that seacoast village in northwestern France, migrated in- 
land — as did Guillaume Ault. The French name Ault has no 
known connection with the German word alt, meaning old, or 
with the Scottish word alt meaning rill or tiny brook. When two 
of the Aults left France in 1670, they took their name with them 
and they kept it intact when they lived in Germany and in the 
Netherlands. When they lived in British Colonial America and in 
Canada the Aults of French origin spelled their name Ault although 
others sometimes spelled the name Alt. This difference in spelling 
may create problems in researching Ault and Alt family lines, for 
several Alt families from the Palatine region of Germany also emi- 
grated to British Colonial America in the 1700's. Most of these 
German Alts kept their surname but for some unknown reason a 
few of the Pennsylvania Alts changed their surname to Ault. As a 
result, Ault and Alt have been known to appear on the same grave- 
stone in a few of the old Churchyard Cemeteries in the Pennsyl- 
vania "Dutch" Country.^ 

Surname changes are not uncommon, and in 1977 when I was 
receiving information from the kind and helpful staff of the Mont- 
gomery County Department of History and Archives in Fonda, 
N.Y., my correspondent informed me that some Ault families, 
probably of Italian descent, were living in the Mohawk river valley. 
In her reply to my inquiry, the daughter of one resident replied as 
follows: —"Unfortunately we are not connected with the Aults in 
your family. We were an Italian family named Audi. My father's 
parents came from Italy without papers showing their name. When 
my father and his brothers and sisters went to school the teachers 
could not understand them, so they wrote down what they thought 
they heard and it came out Ault. "2 

Another Mohawk valley correspondent replied that their fam- 
ily name was changed from Auli to Ault. 



Considerable time could be spent presenting evidence that there 
is no connection between this line of Aults and Alt, Auld, Auldt, 
Olt etc., etc. It would serve no useful purpose, and for the present 
it would seem logical to accept the evidence that both the Ault 
name and this Ault family had their origin in France. Some of our 
antecedents lived for a time in Krefeld in western Germany and in 
Amsterdam. Our Emigrant Ancestor came to British Colonial 
America as a Dutchman and the Aults considered themselves as 
Hollanders, of French origin, when they migrated from the Mohawk 
valley to Upper Canada. 



THE d'AULT COAT OF ARMS 

The d'Ault Coat of Arms appears to be a modification of the 
Coat of Arms of the Count of Ponthieu whose fiefdom was the 
Barony of Ponthieu. 3 This Barony, created in the 10th century, 
was located in western Picardy. Its location and size can be seen 
on maps showing the boundaries of France around 1400.4 The 
Barony included the seacoast village of Ault, the village of Abbe- 
ville and the adjacent lands and villages. 

While the Barony was governed by the succeeding Counts of 
Ponthieu (male blood line descendants only) it was necessary for 
the vassals and supporters of the Count to identify themselves by 
the insignia, banners, shields and other armorial items that they 
wore or displayed. These bore the Coat of Arms of the Count of 
Ponthieu. 

Around 1435 control of the Barony passed from the Count of 
Ponthieu to the Dukes of Burgundy. During this transition period 
if appears that a d'Ault was awarded, or adopted, a Coat of Arms 
that was a modified version of the Ponthieu Coat of Arms. Saf- 
froy, who included the d'Aults in his listing of the Fiefs and Sig- 
neuries in Picardy, and Devisme, who wrote a history of the 
d'Aults, indicate that the d'Aults had become members of the land 
owning nobility of France. However I have not been able to deter- 
mine which member of the d'Ault family received, or adopted, the 
d'Ault Coat of Arms. Riestap had accorded the d'Ault Coat of 
Arms a place in his Armorial General.^ A drawing of the d'Ault 
Coat of Arms is shown on page 4. 









The Ault Coat of Arms, drawn from Riestap, is a quartered 
shield devoid of a crest, leaves or other accessories. A liberal 
French-English description follows: En Cartele Quarteres Anglais 
Form d'Ault Ponthieu v.s. — the Coat of Arms of d'Ault Ponthieu 
v.s. — is a quartered shield. Quarter 1 consists of an azure field, a 
gold cross encree and three silver crescents. Quarter 2 is divided 
into nine azure and silver squares. Quarter 3 consists of a white 
field speckled with gold and blazoned with three red chevrons. 
Quarter four is a silver field blazoned with a red cross. 



HOW TO USE THIS BOOK 

One of the objectives of The Ault Genealogy is to assist any 
interested individuals in finding their ancestors. If they are de- 
scendants of this line of Aults in North America, they are descend- 
ants of our Emigrant Ancestor Johannes Ault whose life and times 
is the keystone of the "Ault Family in North America." Five 
separate Ault genealogies follow in genealogical sequence for Jo- 
hannes's Loyalist sons. They, and their descendants, seem to have 
pursued their own directions and purposes in life and very little 
intermingling of these families can be demonstrated. 

If anyone is interested in designing, developing or drawing an 
ancestral chart, diagram or family tree, I would suggest that they 
obtain some How-To-Do-It books on the subject. As an example, 
it might be helpful if I traced my own genealogical direct line of 
descent from Johannes. Start with the Index where you will find 
me listed as Ault, Garnet W. Turn to the page given and you will 
find that I am a 7th generation Ault in the N-Nicholas Ault line 
ai»v that my permanent genealogical number is 7 N 98. Following 
my name, and my wife's maiden name, carefully note the row of 
names without numbers (for the sake of economy). These are my 
Ault ancestors and reading from left to right they are, my father 
Walter Stanley Ault, my grandfather William Herbert, my great 
grandfather Samuel, my great great grandfather Nicholas N., my 
great great great grandfather Nicholas and finally my great great 
great great grandfather Johannes. On this same page you will find 
that my son Richard Pardee Ault has a permanent 8 N number and 
his son and daughters have permanent 9 N numbers. 

The foregoing is a direct line of descent approach that any 
reader can use to trace their way through 8 or 9 generations of 
Aults in America and 10 generations of Aults in Europe. 

The following direct line of descent, through 9 generations for 
Garnet W. Ault, illustrates a method of compiling ancestors that 
includes uncles and aunts on the paternal side.

The time-honored method of listing individuals in chronologi- 
cal order is followed in this genealogy. As an Ault descendant you 
belong in the Nicholas-N line; the Conrad-C line; the John-J line; 
the Michael-M line or the Everhart-E line ; and you carry a perma- 
nent line of descent number in that line. 

The Index is the only place where one may find the names of 
Aults and others in alphabetical order. The page number follows 
the name. Children of daughters are indexed for their generation 
but are not indexed beyond that point.

THE AULT FAMILY IN EUROPE 

The Ault Family in Europe begins with Guillaume Ault (ca 
1400-ca 1455) and ends, 11 generations later, with Marie Hermione 
Ault the 71st recorded member bearing the Ault name in this 
genealogy.. 

Although no family history of this line of Aults has been found 
in the United States or Canada, Saffroy of France^ reports that a 
history of the d'Ault family was written in 1902 by Georges De- 
visme of Amiens. ' The Devisme history is not available in the 
Library of Congress and for that reason it has not been researched 
by me. My niece, Betty Williams of Milwaukee, took the time to 
confirm that the Devisme book was in the Bibliotheque National 
in Paris in 1979.8 

It appears that most of the information on the Aults, that was 
available to Devisme, was also available to a competent researcher 
who, in 1899, submitted papers on the Ault family in France to 
Levi Addison Ault of Cincinnati. The Ault Papers^ were inherited 
by the late Olga Marie Ault Carter and they were abstracted by 
Helene Marie Bromwell Ault. In 1950 she compiled a Typescript 
of the Ault Papers that she titled "The Ault Family in Picardy."10 
When Helene Ault died she left this Typescript and another com- 
pilation titled "The Ault Family in Ontario "10 to her son, the late 
Charles Albert Ault II of Glendale, Ohio. In June 1975 Charles 
kindly brought the two Typescripts to Washington and permitted 
me to photocopy the contents. This material has been a priceless 
source of information for the present writer. 

From the Typescript we learn that a Jean d'Ault was a vassal 
to the Count of Ponthieu and that he apparently owned some ten- 
ements in Abbeville. In 1419 Jean sold his fief and homage under 
the Count of Ponthieu to his younger brother Guillaume Ault.H 
The Typescript also indicates that Guillaume and Jean were prob- 
ably born in the seacoast village of Ault and that Guillaume, who 
moved to Abbeville, was the founding father of this line of Aults 
in Picardy. The Aults of Picardy seem to have developed into a 
substantial class of farmers, landowners and tradesmen. At first 
they lived in and around the village of Cambrai but later most of 
them lived within a radius of 100 kilometers of Bavay. They 
apparently prospered and began acquiring property and manor 
houses that they left to their descendants. They lived in one of 

9 



the most accessible and unprotected regions of France, for Picardy 
and Flanders were frequent corridors of conflict between France 
and her adversaries. This was particularly true during the territor- 
ial wars of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries when France, Spain, 
Portugal, England and the emerging Germanic States were at war 
with devastating frequency. As a result of this international and 
national turmoil it seems quite probable that the Ault properties 
were involved in these episodes of occupation by armies that rav- 
aged farms, plundered villages and pillaged towns. 

During these centuries of conflict, France was also contending 
with religious strife within its borders that was centered around 
the Huguenot movement. Although this appeared to be a compe- 
tition between the Church and the State for the allegiance of the 
populace, Louis XIV (1643-1715), and his advisors, soon made it 
evident that they wanted France to be a Catholic country. Sup- 
pression of the Huguenots was resumed around 1665 and by the 
time the Edict of Nantes was revoked in 1685, thousands of 
Huguenots had fled to nearby Germany and the Netherlands. 

In 1670 Jean Ault, an 8th generation Ault, being born and 
raised in the Catholic faith, became involved in the Huguenot 
movement. In 1667 Jean had married Henrietta Bouvin whose 
parents were Huguenots. In 1670 Jean and Henrietta decided to 
leave France. They shed their Catholic faith and joined a Hugue- 
not migration to the Netherlands. Their journey to Crefeltl2 [ s 
recounted in Jean Ault's genealogy. Jean's unmarried brother 
Pierre joined them and went to Rotterdam. 

In 1681, while they were living in Crefeld, Jean decided to 
send their third child Jacobus to Amsterdam to be apprenticed to 
Heinrich Schmelz, a well-known goldsmith and watchmater. Jaco- 
bus was a willing and successful apprentice. He stayed in Amster- 
dam after he completed his training. When his father died in 1714 
Jacobus went to Krefeld to help settle his father's estate and to 
dispose of his father's business interests. The Jacobus Ault family 
lived in Krefeld from 1714 until 1729. All six of their children 
were born in this German village before the family returned to 
Amsterdam. Although their oldest son Johannes (ca 1716-1796) 
was born in Krefeld, he was raised and educated as a Dutchman in 
Amsterdam. 

Johannes Ault was a 10th generation — 10 G — Ault in the 
European family line. When, at the age of 37, he came to British 
Colonial America in 1753 he became a 1st generation — 1 A — 
Ault. He also became the Emigrant Ancestor of this Ault family.

GUILLAUME AULT AND HIS DESCENDANTS 

1 G 1 

GUILLAUME AULT ca 1400-ca 1455 

JEANNE BOUGAINVILLE 

(GuUlaume Ault.) 

Guillaume Ault was probably born in ca 1400 in the village of 
Ault. He died, ca 1455, in the village of Cambrai in Picardy and 
the location of his burial site has not been found. 

Guillaume Ault and Jeanne Bougainville were probably mar- 
ried in Picardy. 

Jeanne Bougainville — no information. 

Guillaume Ault and Jeanne Bougainville had 1 child. 

2G2 GuUlaume Ault, b , d ca 1470 

Guillaume Ault was the younger brother of Jean Ault who was 
a vassal to the Count of Ponthieu. Jean appears to have been in 
charge of some tenements in Abbeville that belonged to the Count. 
In 1419 Jean, who apparently owned some property in Abbeville, 
sold his fief and homage to the Count of Ponthieu to his younger 
brother Guillaume. This transaction was recorded in the Archives 
of Ponthieu, Titres H 83, Layette de 1419 and a liberal translation 
from French to English reads as follows: — "Jean d'Ault Sr., vassal 
to the Count of Ponthieu, hereby sells his fief and homage to the 
Count in Abbeville, to his younger brother Guillaume Ault and to 
his wife Jeanne Bougainville and to their heirs. Guillaume and his 
wife thereby become the vassals to the Count of Ponthieu. Wit- 
nesses: M Phillipe Ault and Pierre Dudevant." 

Information on the parents and birthplace of Jean and GuU- 
laume Ault was not obtained from the Archives of Ponthieu. It is 
presumed that they, and their antecedents, came from the vUlage 
of Ault and that Jean and GuUlaume lived in AbbevUle whUe they 
were managing the Count's property. 

It is not known how long GuUlaume remained in Abbeville. 
He died ca 1455 in the vUlage of Cambrai and at that time Jeanne 
BougainvUle made a deposition regarding the disposal of her late 
husband's property. The deposition, written in Latin and made in 
Cambrai, stated that they had a son named GuUlaume and that 
they lived in AbbevUle before coming to Cambrai. She also stated 
that her late husband owned property in Abbeville that he had left 
to their son GuUlaume.

GUILLAUME AULT -ca 1470 
HORTENSE VAUQUELAIN 

(Guillaume Ault, Guillaume.) 

Guillaume Ault of Cambrai was the son of Guillaume Ault and 
Jeanne Bougainville. He was probably born in the village of Cam- 
brai. He died, ca 1470, in Cambrai and his burial site has not been 
located. 

Guillaume Ault and Hortense Vauquelain were married on 
date unknown. 

Hortense Vauquelain — no information. 

Guillaume Ault and Hortense Vauquelain had 1 child. 

3 G 3 Jacques d'Ault, b ca 1468, d 

Very little information could be found on Guillaume and Hor- 
tense except to note that Guillaume inherited some tenements in 
Abbeville from his father. 

The Archives of Ponthieu, Titres H 82 of 1470 reveals that on 
7 Sept 1470 a Louis Bougainville, who was a resident of Cambrai 
and who formerly was the Guardian of the Seal of the Count of 
Pontieu, agreed to donate to the Church of St. Andrew a sum of 
40 soles for the soul of the deceased Guillaume Ault who had been 
a resident of the village of Cambrai. This amount was to be paid 
to the Church during the widowhood of Hortense Vauquelain. The 
money was to be obtained from the rents for the various tenements 
in Abbeville that were owned by the estate of the late Guillaume 
Ault. 

JACQUES d'AULT ca 1468- 
MARIE de VARENNES 

(Jacques d'Ault, Guillaume, Guillaume.) 

Jacques d'Ault of Cambrai, the son of Guillaume Ault and Hor- 
tense Vauquelain was born ca 1468 in Cambrai. His death date 
and burial site have not been located. 

Jacques d'Ault and Marie de Varennes were married in 1503 in 
Cambrai, according to the Charters of Cambrai H 117. 

Marie de Varennes was the daughter of Francois Marie de Var- 
ennes and Blanche Marie Therese Lemieux. Her birth and death 
dates and burial site are missing. Jacques d'Ault and Marie de Var- 
ennes had 1 child.

FRANCOIS-PIERRE AULT 

(Francois-Pierre Ault, Jacques, Guillaume, Guillaume.) 

Francois-Pierre Ault, the son of Jacques d'Ault and Marie de 
Varennes was probably born in Cambrai. His birth and death 
dates have not been located. 

Francois-Pierre Ault was married ca 1529. The name of his 
wife is missing. Two sons were the issue of this marriage. 

5 G 5 Guillaume Ault, b , d 

5 G 6 Henri Ault, b ca 1531, d ca 1605-1607 

Francois-Pierre Ault seems to have been a rather successful 
landowner for he became known as the Seigneur de Cambrai. Ap- 
parently the Aults had accumulated some property in or near the 
village of Cambrai and this may have been the reason he was called 
the Seigneur of Cambrai. From this point on it will be of interest 
to see that the Aults now began drawing up rental agreements and 
began marrying by contract. As their affluence increased they also 
began making bequests and wills.

GUILLAUME AULT 

MARIE ANGELIQUE CLARA PASCAL 

(Guillaume Ault, Francois-Pierre, Jacques, Guillaume, Guillaume.)

On 4 Nov 1598 Henri Ault granted to his brother Guillaume 
Ault and his wife Clara the privilege of living in Henri's manor and 

13 



lands at Bavay for the rest of their lives. This privilege specified 
that if Guillaume and Clara had children by a legal marriage the 
property was to be theirs and their children's in perpetuity. This 
privilege was revoked by Henri's will of 6 May 1605.

Henri Ault of Bavay was born ca 1531 in the village of Cam- 
brai. He was the son of Francois-Pierre Ault, the grandson of 
Jacques d'Ault and the brother of Guillaume Ault. He died ca 
1605 and he was buried in the Church of the Parish of Chesney. 

Henri Ault and Marie Celine Lachapelle were married, by con- 
tract, on 3 May 1560 in the village of Bavay. 

Marie Celine Lachapelle, the daughter of Antoine Lachapelle, 
Seigneur of Bavay, and Louise Biron was born in Bavay. She died 
ca 1607 and she was probably buried next to her husband. 

Henri Ault and Marie Celine Lachapelle had 5 children.

Henri Ault was born and raised in Cambrai. He bought some 
property in Cambrai and he was living there when he met and mar- 
ried Marie Celine Lachapelle on 3 May 1560. Henri was age 29 at 
the time, their marriage was by contract and they lived in Bavay 
for the next 34 years. 

The marriage contract of Henri Ault and Marie Celine Lacha- 
pelle was recorded in the Archives du Nord, Titres de Famille, S.T. 
No. 1783, May 3, 1560. The translation from French to English 
is as follows: — "Know all men by this announcement that at our 
court in Valenciennes, personally established by us, personally ap- 
peared Henri Ault, a resident of Bavay and the grandson of the 
deceased Jacques d'Ault who was a resident of Cambrai, as party 
of the first part and Antoine Lachapelle, Seigneur de Chesney, and 
his wife Louise Biron and their eldest daughter Marie Celine La- 
chapelle having granted Antoine Lachapelle full authority as party 
of the second part granting for themselves and for their heirs all 

14 



their real and personal property —.—.—.— Pro Primo, the said Henri 
Ault takes the said Marie Celine Lachapelle for his wife. The mar- 
riage to take place before the Church — — .— For the support of 
the said couple the said Antoine Lachapelle grants a dot of 300 
ecus 60 sous each to his daughter Marie Celine Lachapelle, in lieu 
of all other claims. The said sum to be paid on the day of the mar- 
riage. Upon receipt of the said sum the said Ault assigns all of his 
property, including his mansion at Bavay with appurtenances, to 
his wife Marie Celine Lachapelle. Should there be male issues one 
of the sons is to be designated by the said Ault to receive the moi- 
ety of all the property after his death. If the said Ault should die 
before his wife, with or without issue, she is to have the usufruct 
of all the property with no restrictions or accounting as long as 
she remains a widow and provided she brings up the children and 
pays all the charges of the estate." Archives du Nord, Titres de 
Famille, S. T. No. 1783, May 3 1560. 

While Henri and his wife were living in Bavay her father An- 
toine Lachapelle died ca 1594. He left the manor and lands in 
the Parish of Chesney to Henri de la Croix and Jean Lachapelle. 
On 12 Oct 1594 Henri and his wife Marie Celine Lachapelle bought 
the manor and lands in Chesney from Henri de la Croix and Jean 
Lachapelle for 1000 livres. The transaction has been translated 
from French to English as follows: — "Know all men from this 
announcement that Henri de la Croix of the Parish of Chesney for 
himself and as representing Jean Lachapelle have sold and trans- 
ferred to Henri Ault of Bavay and to his wife Marie Celine Lacha- 
pelle all of his inheritance as well as all the rights of Jean Lacha- 
pelle in the manor and lands of Chesney, as acquired from the heirs 
of the deceased Antoine Lachapelle for the sum of 1000 livres." 

Henri and Marie moved from the village of Bavay to Chesney 
where Henri became known as the Seigneur de Chesney. By Nov 4 
1598 Henri and Marie had lived in the manor at Chesney for 4 
years and they decided that it was time for them to make gifts to 
their children and to Henri's brother Guillaume. Their decision 
was recorded in the Archives duNord, Titres de Famille, Tome VII 
on 4 Nov 1598. It has been abstracted and translated as follows:— 
"Know ye all that at our court in Valenciennes, personally estab- 
lished by us, personally appeared Henri Ault, Seigneur de Chesney, 
and his wife Marie Celine Lachapelle who has been duly sworn, 
and have granted out of their goodwill and without compulsion as 
an advance on his inheritance, the lands and appurtenances of 
Chesney — the mansion, gardens, arable and uncultivated lands to 

15 



their second son Pierre Ault. In addition the said Ault and his 
wife have granted to said son Pierre 10 calves, 6 sheep and 20 
horses. After the death of our son Pierre the inheritance shall go 
to his older brother Jean Pierre provided however if the said Pierre 
Ault should marry and have children with his wife, they shall suc- 
ceed to this as their inheritance. In addition the manor and lands 
at Bavay owned by Henri before his marriage and now occupied 
by Henri's brother Guillaume Ault and his wife Marie Angelique 
Clara Pascal may be occupied and enjoyed by them for the rest of 
their lives. However if the said Guillaume Ault should have chil- 
dren by a legal marriage he and they shall have possession of the 
said land of Bavay as their inheritance in perpetuity." Written and 
signed at my mansion at Chesney 4 Nov 1598 in the presence of 
Francois Gaston de la Malque and Ann Joseph de Montes. 

Before Henri Ault died ca 1605 in the Parish of Chesney he 
made his will on 6 May 1605. It was an extensive document that 
reflected his generosity and his worldly success as a farmer and 
landowner. It was recorded in the Archives du Nord, Tome XL VI 
No. 14, C.P.H. 83 and it was translated as follows: —"Know ye all 
by this announcement that I Henri Ault, Seigneur de Chesney, by

and considering that the frailty of human nature is equal to all 
men and women and that nothing is certain but death, but the

Lachapelle I revoke all former wills, codiciles or donations and de- 
clare this to be my last Testament." 

On 2 Sept 1607 Marie Celine Lachapelle made her will in her 
mansion in the Parish of Chesney. She requested burial in the local 
Church in the tomb of her ancestors. 

"Item: I give and bequeath a sum of 20 livres to each of the

Master Phillipe Paquet, Notary. Tutelles Paquet, Tome LXIII 
No. 82/7. 

After obtaining dispensation from the Bishop on 3 June 1599 
the consent of both parties to the marriage was presented. No ob- 
jection was made, and the usual marriage ceremonies of the Church 
were observed on 9 June 1599 when Pierre Ault and Marguerite 
Lizotte were married in the Church of Ste. Marie in the Parish of 
Chesney. 

Shortly after their marriage, Pierre and Marguerite moved to 
the village of Maubeuge and while living there Pierre's father Henri 
died in 1605. They were still living in Maubeuge when Pierre died 
in 1649. His mother had died in 1607. Pierre's will, written on 7 
Oct 1649, was recorded in the Archives of Maubeuge Tome LXVI 
189, H. The translation follows: — 

"As all who are born are subject to an end, I Pierre Ault in my 
mansion in the village of Maubeuge considering that in this world 
nothing is so certain as death, but the hour thereof is unknown, 
and not desiring to die without having disposed of the goods that 
God has granted to me in this world as well as to prevent dissen- 
tions between my children after my death, being of good mind and 
memory and without any persuasion but of my own free will and 
desire have made the following dispensation in my own handwriting. 

First in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost 
Amen. I recommend my soul to God, to my dear Mother the 
Blessed Virgin Mary and to all the Saints of Paradis, male and fe- 
male, praying them to humbly intercede for me before the Creator 
of this world that He, out of His grace may pardon my transgres- 
sions. I will that my body be buried in the Church of this village 
and I request that my dear wife not display any wealth or splendor, 
nor have my body lie in state or on display but that I be buried 
like the unknown poor. 

I declare that I have married Mademoiselle Marguerite Lizotte. 

My son Maurice is to have his inheritance from his grandfather 
Henri Ault and to have the sum of 200 livres and to be my heir. 

I bequeath 200 livres each to my children Francois-Georges, 
Ferdinand and Beatrice. 

I bequeath 200 livres to each of the following: — to my bro- 
ther Jean Pierre Ault of Montherme, to my sister Marie Celine 
Ault the widow of Henri Bouvier of Valenciennes, to my grand- 

21 



children Jean, Pierre, Joseph, Angelique, Antoine and Louis who 
are the children of Maurice and Angelique Duval. 

I bequeath 200 livres to my grandson Raoul Ault who is the 
son of Francois-Georges and Aurelia Martineau. 

I bequeath the real and personal residue of my estate to my 
wife Marguerite Lizotte whom I nominate as my administratrix to 
use and dispose of same at her pleasure on condition that she pays 
my debts and these bequests. 

I revoke all former wills and declare this to be my last testa- 
ment." 

The children of Pierre Ault and Marguerite Lizotte remained 
in northern France while Marguerite continued to live in Mau- 
beuge. In 1670 Marguerite decided to leave Maubeuge and move 
to Crefeld to live with her grandson Jean Ault. While living there 
she wrote her will in French on 4 June 1672 according to the 
Records Cole-Duval, Tome LX, No. 83. 

"In the name of God, Amen: I Marguerite Lizotte, widow of 
Pierre Ault, in his lifetime Sieur de Maubeuge, being advanced in 
years and desiring to arrange my estate while I am still alive and in 
the interest of the children and heirs herein named. 

Maurice Ault my eldest son died in Naubeuge on 2 April 1659 
leaving a wife, Angelique Duval and their children Jean, Pierre, 
Joseph, Angelique, Antoine and Louis. My son Francois-Georges 
is a travelling journeyman living in Montherme with his wife Aure- 
lia Martineau and their son Raoul Ault. Ferdinand is my youngest 
son who is married to Marie Dudevant and they have 4 children 
Marie, Ferdinand, Jacques and Maurice. Beatrice Ault, my daugh- 
ter, was the wife of the deceased merchant Jean Jacques Roussilon. 
They have 4 children Marie, Jean, Henri and Pierre. Francois Li- 
zotte is the son of my brother Francois Lizotte and his wife Martha 
Le Grand. 

Item: In the division of my estate I desire that my daughter 
Beatrice Ault, the widow of Jean Jacques Rousillon, shall have my 
house at Maubeuge when she wishes and she is to pay the actual 
expense for this. She may also have all the linen, furniture beds 
and clothing in advance. 

Item: I bequeath the sum of 100 livres to my grandson Pierre

MAURICE AULT 1600-1659 
* ^ T GELIQUE DUVAL -1682 

(Maurice Ault, Pierre. nri, Francois-Pierre, Jacques, Guillaume, 
Guillaume.) 

Maurice Ault, the first of 4 children of Pierre Ault and Mar- 
guerite Lizotte, was born on 27 Mar 1600 in the village of Mau- 
beuge in Picardy. He was baptised by the Parish Priest on 4 Apr 
1600 in the presence of his godfather Maurice Bouchard, and his 
godmother Marie Celine Lachapelle. He died on 2 April 1659 in 
Maubeuge, and he was buried in the Tomb of his ancestors in 
Bavay. 

Maurice Ault and Angelique Duval were married, by contract, 
on 5 June 1636 in Maubeuge. The witnesses were M. Jean Jacques 
Rousillon, Francois-Georges Ault and Marie Duval. 

Angelique Duval, the daughter of M. Jean Duval and Louise 
Charpentier, was probably born in Maubeuge. She died on 9 Dec 
1682 in Quesnoy and she was buried in the Church at Quesnoy. 

Maurice Ault and Angelique Duval had 6 children.

Maurice Ault has already been identified in the wills of his par- 
ents and his grandparents Henri Ault and Marie Celine Lachapelle. 
He was age 36 when he married Angelique Duval by contract. The 

25 



contract is omitted from this genealogy. However the Duval Reg- 
ister, the Duval Greffe s 76, contains the following informative 
deposition dated 2 May 1638. "Maurice Ault of the village of 
Maubeuge and his wife Angelique Duval, daughter of the deceased 
M. Jean Duval, make the following deposition: — Although they 
have been married for 2 years under their marriage contract for 
the mutual ownership of property, they agree that the ownership 
of the Duval farm that Angelique inherited from her father, who 
died in 1638, shall be her exclusive property, and Maurice Ault 
hereby relinquishes all rights and interest therein." 

On 2 Oct 1650, Maurice bought a house and some property 
near the village of Baupaume, and on 11 Oct 1650 he transferred 
the ownership of this to his brothers Francois-Georges and Ferdi- 
nand. 

On 2 Oct 1650, Maurice bought a house outside of Baupaume. 
He paid 200 livres for this and he registered the property in his 
name, his wife's name and in the interests of his 6 children. The 
house was sold to Maurice by Jean Charpentier, Louis Bouvin, and 
Marie and Charles Martineau of Baupaume. The papers of sale 
were witnessed by Pierre Morin, Jacques Colin and Louise Marie 
Fournier and the contract was recorded in the Archives of Bau- 
paume C C 143/9H. At a later date Maurice transferred the owner- 
ship of this property to his brothers Francois-Georges and Ferdi- 
nand. 

Maurice Ault was a successful farmer and nail manufacturer 
who acquired considerable property in his lifetime. He was an 
ardent Catholic who supported his King and he was a Colonel in a 
regiment of cavalry in the service of his Majesty from 1652 to 
1658. When he died at the age of 59 on 2 April 1659, his 6 chil- 
dren were all minors between the age of 11 and 19. He died before 
his two eldest sons Jean age 30 and Pierre age 28 renounced their 
Catholic faith and fled to the Netherlands in 1670. As a result 
they forfeited their inheritance and interest in the property of 
their parents and grandparents. 

On 4 June 1658, Maurice and his wife Angelique made a joint 
will that was found in the records of the village of Baupaume Vol 
LXII, 84 H. "—.—.— and desiring to dispose of what property God 
has granted to us in this world we give and bequeath to our eldest 
son Jean Ault, to our next son Pierre Ault and to our children Jo- 
seph, Angelique, Antoine and Louis and to all their heirs and suc- 
cessors. We desire them to comply with the following provisions 
and to live in a fraternal relationship.

4 June 1658 Maurice Ault & Angelique Duval 

Maurice Ault died on 2 Apr 1659 which was one year after he 
had made the joint will with his wife. On 19 June 1682, his widow 
Angelique Duval made her last will and testament when she was 
living in her manor at Quesnoy. Her will was entered in the rec- 
ords of the village of Quesnoy, Tome LXII, 117 H. 
"In the name of God, Amen. 

This 19th day of June 1682 appeared Jean Boucart priest and 
cure of Quesnoy and supporting witnesses before Angelique Duval 
of Quesnoy, stating that she is the widow of Maurice Ault who

beuge, Bertaimont and Baupaume. She was confined to her manor 
but she was of good mind and memory. She has received the last 
sacraments as she feels the approach of death. Her last will and 
testament has been translated as follows: — 'Having recommended 
my soul to God for His mercy through the Virgin Mary and the 
Saints of Paradis, she desires that her body be buried in the Church

Jean (Johannes) Ault, one of 6 children of Maurice Ault and 
Angelique Duval, was born ca 1640 in the village of Maubeuge in 
the Province of Picardy. He was baptised on 11 June 1640 in 
Maubeuge in the presence of his godfather Dr. Antoine Bissot, and 
his godmother Marie Magdelene Bissot, the daughter of Dr. Bissot. 
His name was changed to Johannes when he became a citizen resi- 
dent of Crefeld in the Netherlands. He died 7 Aug 1714 in Kre-

Jean Ault, who was born in the village of Maubeuge in Picardy, 
was age 19 when his father Maurice died on 2 Apr 1659. His father 
had written his will on 4 June 1658 and he had named Jean as the 
inheritor of the manor and farms at Quesnoy. He had also named 
Jean to receive the residue of his estate. When Jean's mother 
Angelique Duval wrote her will on 9 Dec 1682, she left 1 livre to 
Jean and to each member of his family who by 1682 had lived in 
Crefeld for the past 12 years. When Jean's grandfather Pierre Ault 
made his will on 7 Oct 1649, he left 200 livres to Jean. When his 
grandmother Marguerite Lizotte made her will on 4 June 1672, 
she left the farm and appurtenances at Montherme to Jean, and 
she also made him a residuary legatee of her estate in spite of the 
fact he was a French refugee who had been a resident of Dutch 
Crefeld since 1670. 

Jean Ault seems to have had a normal early life in Picardy 
among his relatives, family and friends. In 1670 when he was age 
30, he was a member of a rather prosperous Catholic family, he 
had inherited property, and he had a wife and 3 children— one a 
newborn. However he was living in an era of great social, political 
and economic unrest in France. The bitter territorial wars involv- 
ing France, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Germany and Eng- 
land had kept western Europe in a frustrating endless turmoil. In 
1667, the year Jean and Henrietta were married, France and the 
Netherlands began another war, and the armies of Louis XIV of 
France began marching back and forth through Picardy and Flan- 
ders. 

During this time there was increasing harassment and persecu- 
tion of the Huguenots, who by choice, or necessity, were fleeing 
to the nearby towns and villages of the Netherlands and Germany. 
Jean's wife, Henrietta was the daughter of Huguenot parents 
whose fate was unknown, but who might have fled to Crefeld, 
which had become a haven for French Huguenots. 

In 1670 Jean and Henrietta decided to sell their manor house 
and farm at Quesnoy for 300 livres. The property was bought by 
his brother Joseph and his wife Marie Dufour of Bertaimont, his 

31 



brother Antoine and his wife Marie Duchermel of Bertaimont, his 
brother Louis Ault and his wife Marguerite Dufour. By July- 
August of 1670 all the arrangements had been made to leave Ques- 
noy. Jean and Henrietta renounced their Catholic faith, and joined 
a party of Huguenots who had gathered at Maubeuge for an exo- 
dus to the Netherlands. Jean's younger brother Pierre, age 28, 
decided to join the group. They followed the Sambre river valley 
to where it became the Meuse at Namur. They continued their 
journey northward in the valley of the Meuse, through territory 
that became Belgium in 1830, until they reached the town of 
Venlo in the eastern Netherlands. It was an incredible journey, 
and at Venlo Jean and his family turned eastward and sought 
refuge in the border town of Crefeld in the eastern Netherlands. 
At Venlo, Pierre left the family group and made his way westward 
to the village of Gorkum near Rotterdam. It is worth observing 
that this difficult journey of 1670 had, as its counterpart over 100 
years later, a similar journey by some Ault descendants who left 
the Mohawk valley in the Colony of New York. Their journey was 
along the shores of Lake Champlain and down the valley of the 
Richelieu river to Montreal. Their reason— persecution of the Loy- 
alists during the American Revolution. 

Shortly after they arrived in Crefeld, the five Aults who had 
become refugee residents of the town were required to declare 
their loyalty and swear allegiance to William III of the Netherlands. 
They were given Dutch names— Jean became Johannes, Henrietta 
remained the same, Henri became Heinrich and Jacques became 
Jacobus. 

On 8 Nov 1680, the Aults decided to return to their Catholic 
faith. They publicly abjured their error in leaving the Church, and 
they promised to live and die in the Catholic faith. 

By 1691 the Aults indicated that they intended to remain in 
Crefeld for the 1691 records of the Burgermeister Johann Bruck- 
man, B.L XCL 7 reveal that Johannes Ault bought a house and 
land on the Everstrasse for 102 Gulden, plus a yearly payment of 
. 2 Gulden, 10 Albus and 6 Heller, from Johann Wilheim, Wilhelm 
Von Furth, Johann Wilhelm von Meuthen, and Johannes Krum- 
bach. 

Johannes Ault became a merchant on the Everstrasse, and the 
family had just settled down to a normal family life when Henri- 
etta Bouvin died at the age of 47 in 1692. 

Johannes Ault and Sophia Adams's marriage on 14 July 1693 
was by contract which included the information that Johannes 

32 




Ault was of an honorable family. The contract states that he was 
to receive 300 Gulden a year after the marriage from his wife's 
mother Marie Kleist, the remarried widow of Jacob Backer. 

When King William III of the Netherlands died on 19 Mar 
1702, the self-proclaimed King Frederick I of Prussia annexed part 
of the eastern Netherlands. This included the village of Crefeld, 
and the village name was changed to Krefeld. The male inhabit- 
ants were required to take an oath of allegiance to their Prussian 
ruler, and the former French Aults who had become Dutch citi- 
zens now became German citizens. 

During this time of turmoil and change, Johannes Ault decided 
to send his third child Jacques, now Jacobus, to Amsterdam as an 
apprentice to the goldsmith and watchmaker Heinrich Schmelz. 
Jacobus was age 11 when the Ault-Schmelz contract was signed on 
1 Mar 1681. The contract was found in Urkunden Coll Magny 16: 
185 S and it reads as follows: — "I agree to send my son Jacobus 
Ault at my own cost from Krefeld to Amsterdam and with God's 
help my son shall enter the home and employment of Heinrich 
Schmelz to learn the trade and business of watchmaker and gold- 
smith and nothing else. Said Heinrich Schmelz has agreed to feed 
and cloth my son for 3 years in a way consistent with the position 
of such a young man. I, Heinrich Schmelz also agree with the said 
Johannes Ault that if his son Jacobus remains with me for 3 years 
and acts in an honest manner I will give him a present that will be 
most satisfactory to him, I, Heinrich Schmelz have attached my 
private seal as well as my merchant seal and have requested Jacob 
Isaacs Van Bebber, a merchant of Crefeld, to add his seal in our 
presence. I, Johannes Ault have also placed my seal on this con- 
tract signed in Crefeld on 1 Mar 1681." 

It is of interest to note that Heinrich Schmelz was a well-known 
and highly respected watchmaker and goldsmith in Amsterdam 
and that his friend Jacob Isaacs Van Bebber was a merchant in 
Crefeld. On 11 June 1683, he was one of six Mennonites who re- 
ceived 1000 acres of land in Pennsylvania as a grant from William 
Penn. As a result of the grant, Van Bebber and five other Mennon- 
ites emigrated from Rotterdam to Colonial America on 24 July 
1683 and founded the Frankfort Land Co. 

After the merchant Johannes Ault died in Krefeld on 7 Aug 
1714, his widow Sophia Adams managed the family business with 
the aid of the Krefeld merchant Peter Kleist who had been ap- 
pointed as guardian of the minor children of the second marriage. 
Herman was age 19, Berndt was age 17, and Sophia was age 15. 

33 



Peter Kleist was also charged with representing the three children 
in the settlement of their father's estate. The widow Sophia Adams 
and Peter Kleist were known to the Judge who accepted the estate 
as valued at 3600 CI eve Thaler after the payment of all debts. The 
details of the will of Johannes Ault were written in Flemish and 
the will was recorded on 9 May 1715 in Urkunden, Haldeman 6. 
The English translation follows: — "The guardian Peter Kleist 
grants the entire real and personal estate of her deceased husband 
Johannes Ault, including the land and farm at Krefeld, to the 
widow upon payment of the sum of 900 Thaler. She agrees to pay 
300 Thaler to each of her stepchildren — Heinrich, Jacobus, Pieter, 
Angelica and Margaretha Ault. She also agrees to pay 300 Thaler 
to each of her children of her marriage to Johannes Ault — Her- 
man, Berndt and Sophia Ault when they come of age. The widow 
also agrees to pay all the debts of the estate within 3 months or to 
make the children a quit claim thereof and pay all the expenses of 
this. Although she is in full possession of the house on the Ever- 
strasse and another house opposite the Heil Dionys Church in Kre- 
feld the widow agrees to pay the sum of 1800 Thaler in the settle- 
ment of this property. Commercial bills and bills receivable are 
not to be sold and the business is to be continued under the name 
Johannes Ault Successors." A certified copy of the foregoing was 
issued to the widow Sophia Adams Ault on 9 May 1715. 

Shortly after the estate of Johannes Ault was settled in Kre- 
feld on 9 May 1715, Sophia Adams went to Amsterdam to live 
with her stepson Jacobus who was now a goldsmith and watch- 
maker in Amsterdam. He had married Cora Schmelz, the daughter 
of his mentor. 

On 18 June 1755 the widow Sophia Adams Ault, living in Am- 
sterdam, wrote her will in German. It was recorded in Urkunden, 
Samuel Adams, 1755. "In the name of God Amen •—.—.—.— To 
my heirs, I appoint my stepson Jacobus Ault, now living in retire- 
ment in Zaandam northwest of Amsterdam and his wife Cora 
Schmelz —.—.—.— My sons Herman and Berndt living in Geldern 
near Krefeld and my stepsons Heinrich, Johannes and Pieter Ault 
of Krefeld are so indebted to me that they are not entitled to any- 
thing out of my estate as they have exhausted their entire mater- 
nal inheritance. Therefore they are excluded from any participa- 
tion in my estate. 

I appoint my brother Peter Adams of Krefeld to represent any 
interest that Heinrich, Johannes, Pieter, Herman and Berndt Ault 
may have in my estate.

The inheritance belonging to my grandson Johannes Ault who 
emigrated to Colonial America in 1753 with his wife Hannah Ault, 
born Henkel, and their children Nicholas, Frederick, Conrad, 
Johan and David shall be at their free disposal and shall not be 
subject to any supervision by their father Jacobus Ault of Amster- 
dam. As their representative I appoint Johannes Henke of Zaan- 
dam and if he should fail to act, Nicholas Van Ness of Amsterdam. 

My house in Krefeld on the Everstrasse I give and bequeath, 
without cost, to my daughter Sophia Hecker, born Ault, who is 
the widow of the merchant Heinrich Hecker of Krefeld. 

My house in Krefeld opposite the Heil Dionys Church, I give 
and bequeath, without costs, to my stepson Heinrich Ault of Kre- 
feld and to his wife Margaret Gross and to their children Johannes, 
Sophia and Alberta. 

I especially give and bequeath to my great grandson Nicholas 
Ault of Philadelphia my collection of books and the prayer book 
that belonged to his deceased great grandfather Johannes Ault and 
the black clock that came from my mother's family — the Backers."

PIERRE AULT ca 1642-1689 
ELSJE WARK -ca 1690 

(Pierre Ault, Maurice, Pierre, Henri, Francois-Pierre, Jacques, Guil- 
laume, Guillaume.) 

Pierre Ault, one of 6 children of Maurice Ault and Angelique 
Duval, was born ca 1642 in the village of Maubeuge in Picardy. He 
was baptised on 9 May 1642. He was the brother of Jean, Joseph, 
Angelique, Antoine and Louis Ault. He died, age 47, in 1689 in 
Rotterdam and his burial site has not been located. 

Pierre Ault and Elsje Wark were married before 1676. 

Elsje Wark, the daughter of Jean Wark and Catrijn d*Este, was 
born on the Orkney Islands. Her parents moved to the island of 
Walcheren in the Netherlands when she was an infant. She died ca 
1690, and her burial site has not been located. 

Pierre Ault and Elsje Wark had 6 children.

Pierre Ault was age 28 and single when he left France in 1670 
and went to Gorkum near Rotterdam. On 6 Oct 1676 he wrote a 
letter to his mother Angelique Duval in Quesnoy. After thanking 
her for sending him some money, he inquired about her health. 
He stated that their son Jan was a sturdy child who enjoyed good 
health. One can assume from this letter that their son Jan was 
born before 1676, and that the other children were probably born 
between 1676 and 1682. 

When Pierre's father Maurice made a joint will with his wife 
Angelique Duval on 4 June 1658, they left the manor and lands at 
Maubeuge to Pierre. When Pierre's mother made her will on 19 
June 1682 in Quesnoy, she gave 1 livre each to her son Pierre, to 
his wife Elsje and to their son Jan. After his mother died, Pierre 
made an effort to claim part of her estate: — "Pierre Ault, son of 
Maurice Ault and Angelique Duval, a resident of Rotterdam, Hol- 
land, in his own interest and in the interest of his children Jan, 
Moris, Peter, Angelica, Elsje and William hereby authorizes 
M. Francois Dufermel of Valenciennes to represent me in the 
claim upon the estate of my said mother Angelique Duval, de- 
ceased, of Quesnoy." Pierre's correspondence was in French, and 
the preceding authorization was obtained from Notaire Dufermel, 
Act T.V. 1682/4. 

It is extremely doubtful that this authorization for a claim 
against his mother's estate resulted in any settlement to Pierre. He 
did not live in France, he expressed no desire to return, he left 
France as a temporary Huguenot, and he had been settled with his 
family in Rotterdam for the past 12 years. He was in no position 
to have his claim honored, as he had fled the country as a Hugue- 
not in 1670. 

Pierre died intestate in 1689. His widow Elsje wrote her will 
in Flemish on 3 May 1690 in Rotterdam. She left 1/5 part of her 
estate to each child — Jan, Moris, Peter, Angelica and Elsje. She 
left her prayer book to her brother-in-law Johannes Ault of Cre- 
feld. She provided for her youngest child William as follows: — 
"As my youngest son William is weak minded and non compos 
mente and therefore cannot inherit his share of my estate, my 
will and request is that my other children shall care for him and 
provide for him as they expect God to care for them and to bury 
him and if God in his mercy shall give him his mind again he shall 
inherit 1/5 of my estate."

Joseph Ault, one of 6 children of Maurice Ault and Angelique 
Duval, was born ca 1644 in the village of Maubeuge in Picardy. He 
was baptised on 7 Mar 1644. He died after his mother's will was 
written in 1682, and his burial site has not been located. 

Joseph Ault and Marie Dufour were married on date unknown.

Joseph Ault and Marie Dufour had children. 

Joseph was a minor when his father Maurice died in 1659. Ac- 
cording to his father's will, Joseph and his brothers Antoine and 
Louis were to have the family mansion at Bertaimont. When Jo- 
seph's mother Angelique Duval wrote her will on 19 June 1682, 
she gave the furniture in the Bertaimont house to Joseph. The 
records of La Famille Dufour inform us that Joseph's brother 
Louis married Marguerite Dufour, the sister of Marie. 

After their parents's death, Joseph joined Angelique, Antoine 
and Louis in filing a claim against their parents' estate. The result 
of this is not available.

ardy. She was baptised on 11 June 1645. She died, age 48, on 
14 Aug 1693 in Quesnot, and her burial site has not been located. 

Angelique never married. She appears to have lived with her 
parents in Quesnoy. When her parents wrote their joint wills on 
4 June 1658, they left her 300 livres upon her marriage. When her 
mother wrote her will on 19 June 1682, she left 6 sheep to Ange- 
lique who was age 36 at that time. Angelique joined her brothers

he became an apprentice to the goldsmith and watchmaker Hein- 

41 



rich Schmelz. He remained in Amsterdam until his father Jean 
(Johannes) died in Krefeld on 7 Aug 1714. Jacobus was then age 
44 and he immediately went to Krefeld to help his stepmother 
Sophia Adams manage his father's business and estate. He returned 
to Amsterdam in December 1714 to marry Cora Schmelz and they 
both returned to Krefeld after the marriage. Their marriage agree- 
ment, written in German, was found in Erbachaftssechen, 1716, 
S. 87, Samml S. It has been translated as follows: — "We, the 
undersigned Jacobus Ault of Krefeld and Cora Ault, born Schmelz, 
of Amsterdam have made the following marriage contract: — 

I, Jacobus Ault agrees that if my wife should be alive at my 
death without any heirs, she shall be my residuary legatee and I, 
Cora, the wife of Jacobus Ault agrees that if I should die before 
my husband without heirs he shall inherit my property. 

The children shall inherit l A of the estate and the survivor the 
other half. 

The survivor shall not be obliged to make an inventory or to 
give an account or to seal the personal property. 

We have both attached our seals to this agreement in Krefeld 
on 6 Jan 1716." 

Jacobus and Cora lived in Krefeld for 13 years (1716-1729) 
and during that period their 6 children were born. When the 
family returned to Amsterdam in 1729, Jacobus resumed his occu- 
pation as a goldsmith and watchmaker. The children resumed their 
education in the Amsterdam schools. When Jacobus retired, he 
and Cora moved to Zaandam where he died, age 88, on 9 Sept 
1758. 

On 28 Aug 1758 Jacobus wrote his will and as a preamble to 
the will he wrote the following: — "Being of advanced age the 
merchant and goldsmith Jacobus, born Jacques, Ault of Amsterdam 
desires to arrange his estate while he is still alive in the interests of 
his children and heirs whom he identifies as follows: — 

1 Johannes Ault, my oldest son who went to America in 1753 
with his wife Hannah Henkel and their children Nicholas born 7 Jan 
1748, Frederick born 4 Feb 1749, Conrad born 9 May 1750, John 
born 11 Apr 1751 and David born 7 Mar 1752. After they arrived 
in America Johannes and Hannah had Henri born 11 Oct 1754, 
George born 6 July 1755, Michael and his twin sister Sophia Marie 
born 16 May 1756. 

2 Cora Ault VanNess my daughter, the widow of Van- 
Ness and their children Nicholas VanNess born 1 Feb 1743 and 
Elsje VanNess born 17 Nov 1745. 

42 



3 My sons Heinrich Ault age 40, Nicholas Ault age 38, Fred- 
erick Ault age 27 and Conrad Ault age 29. 

I request that as many of my children and grandchildren, that 
can appear, be present when I make my will. They are all known 
to the Judge and I hereby make the following disposition of my 
property. 

The merchant and goldsmith Jacobus Ault transfers and con- 
veys his entire estate, and particularly his house in Amsterdam, to 
his son Heinrich Ault who takes full possession of the house. The 
furniture, beds, bedding etc. are excluded and Jacobus reserves for 
himself, for his lifetime, a room on the floor facing the street. 

The sum of 1500 Gulden is to be paid to Heinrich who shall 
distribute this amount as follows: 1. Johannes Ault, the oldest 
son, shall be given 250 Gulden through my agent Henri Huffman. 
2. Each of my children, Nicholas, Frederick, Cora and Conrad 
shall be given 250 Gulden. 3. Each of the following shall be given 
50 Gulden —Joseph and Francois, the children of Nicholas; Eugene 
Louis, the son of Frederick; Marie Hermione, the daughter of Con- 
rad Ault and Marie Dudevant. 4. Fifty Gulden shall be set aside 
for my burial. 5. My son Heinrich is to be my residuary legatee, 
provided he execute these bequests." 

A codicil dated 28 Aug 1756 was added to the will. This in- 
structed Heinrich, or his representative, to contribute 50 Thaler 
to the poor of Krefeld one month after the death of Jacobus. The 
money was to be from the estate and not from Heinrich 's personal 
inheritance. 

On 9 Jan 1760, Heinrich and Conrad Ault appeared before the 
Court in their interests and in the interests of Cora VanNess, their 
sister. The available records do not reveal the purpose of this ap- 
pearance. 

Heinrich remained in Amsterdam to settle his father's estate 
and to distribute the amounts designated in his father's will. Jaco- 
bus's other children remained in Europe except Johannes who 
became the Emigrant Ancestor of this line of Aults in North 
America.

THE AULT FAMILY IN NORTH AMERICA 

The Genealogy of "The Ault Family in North America" begins 
with our Emigrant Ancestor Johannes Ault who left Amsterdam in 
1753 and emigrated to the Philadelphia area of British Colonial 
Pennsylvania. At that time he had a wife and 5 children. Eight 
years later, in 1761, Johannes, his wife and 9 children migrated to 
the Mohawk valley in Colonial New York and became tenant 
farmers of Sir William Johnson. During the American Revolution 
some members of the family supported the Loyalist cause and in 
1777 three of Johannes' sons — Nicholas, Conrad and John — fled 
to Montreal. In 1780 Johannes, his wife Gertrude, his sons Michael 
and Everhart and his daughters Sophia Marie and Catharina joined 
in the flight of Loyalists from the Mohawk river valley to the Brit- 
ish Province of Quebec. In 1784 Johannes and his family began a 
new life as pioneer Loyalist settlers in the St. Lawrence river val- 
ley, between the present City of Cornwall and the Town of 
Iroquois. 

Prior to 1784 the history of "The Ault Family in North Amer- 
ica" evolves around Johannes (ca 1716-1796) and his family life 
and times in the Mohawk valley. When he left there, at the age of 
64, he spent his remaining years in Matilda Twp. in Dundas Co. 
His son Nicholas (1748-1812) settled in Osnabruck Twp. in Stor- 
mont Co. His son Conrad (1750- ) appears to have settled 

into anonymity. His son John (1751-1833) settled in Cornwall 
Twp. in Stormont Co. His son Michael (1756-1829) settled in 
Matilda Twp. in Dundas Co. His daughter Sophia Marie (1756- ) 
settled in Williamsburg Twp. in Dundas Co. His daughter Catha- 
rina (before 1765- ) probably settled in Matilda Twp. His son 
Everhart (1765- ) settled in Matilda Twp. 

Four separate Ault family lines developed from these pioneer 
Loyalist settlers and they will be taken up later in genealogical 
sequence.

H GERTRUDE REBECCA BOUG 1725-1803 

(Johannes Ault, Jacobus, Jean, Maurice, Pierre, Henri, Francois- 
Pierre, Jacques, Guillaume, Guillaume) 

Johannes Ault, the Emigrant Ancestor of this line of Aults in 
North America, was the first of 6 children of Jacobus Ault and 
Cora Schmelz. He was a 10th generation (10 G) Ault in the Euro- 
pean line and the 1st generation (1 A) Ault in the North American 
line. He was born ca 1716 in the town of Krefeld in Germany 
after it had been taken from the Netherlands in 1702 by Frederick 

11 of Prussia. He died on 21 Nov 179613 in the pioneer settler's 
home of his Loyalist son Michael, whose Crown grant farm was 
located on the WV2 of Lot 20 in Concession I in Matilda Twp. in 
the St. Lawrence valley. His burial site has not been located, but 
he was probably buried in the Old Section of the Iroquois Point 
Cemetery in Matilda. No records of burials in this part of the 
Cemetery are available. Most of tne gravestones are weathered and 
illegible.14 

1 Johannes and his first wife Hannah Henkel were married ca 
1747 in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. 

Hannah Henkel — no information except to record that she 
was a Dutch subject of German descent. She died sometime after 
1756, and her burial site has not been located. 

Johannes Ault and Hannah Henkel had 9 children. The first 5 
were born in Amsterdam and the last 4 were born in Colonial 
America.

II Johannes Ault and his second wife Gertrude Rebecca Boug, 
were married in Colonial America sometime after 1756, but before 
they went to the Mohawk river valley ca 1761. 

Gertrude Rebecca Boug was born in 1725. She died, age 78, 
on 10 June 1803 in the pioneer settler's home of her Loyalist son 
Everhart Ault, whose Crown grant farm was located on the WA of 
Lot 19 in Concession I in Matilda. She was probably buried be- 
side her husband. The Register of Matilda, Williamsburg and Osna- 
bruck, Liber A on Burials, listed Gertraud Alt as the relict of Nico- 
los Alt of Matilda, born 1725, died 10 June 1803 and buried 12 
June 1803. This entry should read that Gertraud was the relict of 
Johannes Ault for Nicolos was her stepson. 

Johannes Ault and Gertrude Rebecca Boug had 2 children. 

2 CA 11 Catharina Ault, b before 1765, d 

2 E 12 Johannes Eberhardus Ault, b 20 July 1765, d 

Johannes and his brothers and sisters were born in the German 
border town of Krefeld because their parents Jacobus and Cora 
lived there for 13 years (1716-1729) while they were settling the 
estate and business interests of Jacobus' father. However, Jacobus 
and Cora were anxious to return to Amsterdam and when they 
were able to do so, in 1729, the children began their formal educa- 
tion in the Amsterdam schools. Johannes was age 11 at that time, 
and when he completed that part of his education he entered the 
apprentice system to become a goldsmith, watchmaker and jeweler. 
He was 31 years of age ca 1747 when he married Hannah Henkel 
in Amsterdam. 

No information could be located indicating the reasons why 
Johannes and Hannah emigrated to British Colonial America in 
1753. One would expect that Johannes' skilled profession would 
have assured him of a secure future in Amsterdam. Although 
numerous Henkels were settling in the Colony of Pennsylvania 
during this era, no evidence has been found indicating that a 
Henkel relative urged them to come to that colony. However 
great crowds of western Europeans were passing through the Ports 
of Amsterdam and Rotterdam on their way to America, where 
land was available for settlement and religious freedom was as- 
sured. The Colony of Pennsylvania became the promised land, 
and people were making great sacrifices to go to America. German 
and Dutch immigrants were disembarking almost daily at the Port 
of Philadelphia. In 1753 Johannes decided to relinquish his inher- 
itance to his brother Heinrich and the family left for America.15 

According to the 28 Aug 1758 will of Jacobus Ault of Amster- 

54 




; 



dam, who was then 80 years of age, his son Johannes left Amster- 
dam in 1753 with his wife Hannah Henkel and their 5 children — 
Nicholas, Frederick, Conrad, John and David. The will stated that 
they lived in the Philadelphia area and one would assume that they 
disembarked at the Port of Philadelphia and took the Oath of Alle- 
giance to George II of Britain. However all passenger lists studied 
to date by this compiler have failed to list a Johannes Ault, or Ait, 
and family as disembarking immigrants at the Port of Philadelphia 
during the years 1752, 1753 and 1754. Several passenger lists 
have been found that contained the names of Alts, from the Ger- 
man Palatine, who entered America by the Port of Philadelphia.16 
To date, the Port of Entry for this Ault family has not been 
located. 

The writer has not been able to determine where the Aults 
lived or who they might have stayed with in the Philadelphia area. 
At that time, the Crefeld section of the Germ an town Township in 
the County of Philadelphia was inhabited by a number of Dutch- 
German immigrants who had come from the Crefeld-Krefeld area 
of western Europe. One might surmise that the Aults might take 
refuge in this area. However a survey of 5 Vol. of Germantown 
history, the Indices of 2 Vol. of Genealogical items from early 
Germantown and Philadelphia newspapers, and the Indices of Wills 
to 1825 failed to reveal any information on the Aults.l? 

No evidence has been located that the Aults lived in the Lan- 
caster-York-Hanover areas of Pennsylvania. The records of the 
Historical Society of York County reveals that no connection could 
be found between the Alts of that area and the Aults of New York 
State. 18 Many of the Alts who settled in the "Pennsylvania Dutch 
Country" were Mennonites who came from the Palatine region of 
Germany. One of these Alt families has been traced through 8 gen- 
erations by Reeser.19 A few German Alts, in the Hanover area, 
who were not related to the Valentin Alt line, changed their sur- 
name from Alt to Ault. Several years ago both surnames could be 
found on some of the family gravestones in the old Churchyard 
Cemeteries in this region.20 

At one time some of the Aults who lived in Ottawa felt that 
our antecedents came from the Schoharie valley in the New York 
Colony. Efforts to confirm this have been unproductive. It is 
known that a number of indentured Germans from the Palatinate 
were settled on the Hudson river valley property of the Livingston 
family in 1710. In order to pay for their passage to British Colon- 
ial America, they were to work in the Pine Barrens to provide tar 

55 










and spars for Queen Anne's Navy — for she had sponsored the en- 
deavor. The project was a failure and in 1712 the Germans aban- 
doned the area. They were destitute. Some of them managed to 
migrate to Pennsylvania and others settled in the Schoharie valley 
where they soon encountered great difficulty in establishing prop- 
erty rights and ownership. A few of this group moved northward 
into the Mohawk river valley. It is significant to observe that there 
were no Aults, or Alts, listed among the German immigrants who 
worked on the Livingston property.21,22,23 Further investiga- 
tion reveals that no Aults, or Alts, lived in the Schoharie valley for 
none could be found in the existing Church records owned by the 
Schoharie County Historical Society, or in the Indices of Scho- 
harie County .24 

In an effort to determine if the Aults came from this region, 
the next avenue of investigation was to make a thorough study of 
the extensive records of the Churches that had been located in this 
part of the New York Colony. These records had been compiled 
in 1916-1918 for the New York Genealogical and Biographical So- 
ciety. Royden Woodward Vosburg was the Editor and for the 
sake of brevity they will be referred to as the Vosburg records.25 

No information was found in the Vosburg records regarding 
the marriage of Johannes Ault and Gertrude Rebecca Boug. One 
may assume that they were married before they came to the Mo- 
hawk valley ca 1761. 

No Aults, or Alts, could be found in the 3 Vol. of records of 
St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church of Schoharie in Schoharie. 
However an entry made on page 54 in Vol. 1 states that Michael 
Merkele the older, Johannes Frantz, the son of Sebastian Frantz 
and Catharina Merkele, the daughter of Frederick Merkele, were 
killed by Indians at New Dorlach on 19 Oct 1780.26 This infor- 
mation has served as the authentic background for the Christianna 
Merkle story that has been told by many writers from the St. Law- 
rence valley including Croil27 and Harkness.28 

The records of the Dutch Reformed Church of Stone Arabia in 
the Town of Palatine revealed, on page 58, that Johannes Eberhar- 
dus Ault was born on 20 July 1765 and baptised on 13 Sept 1765. 
His parents were listed as Johannes Alt and Gertraudt. His married 
sponsors were Johann Eberhard Cochnat and wife Barbara. 

The records of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of 
Caughnawaga, now Fonda, demonstrate that the Aults lived in or 
near Fonda during 1776-1780. In Vol. 1 page 50, Nicholas Alt 
and Caty Link were listed as the sponsors for the baptism on 20 

56 



Dec 1778 of Caty Snyder, the daughter of Abraham Snyder and 
Marie Link. Page 51 in Vol. 1 reveals that Johannes Alt and Ger- 
truy were the sponsors for the baptism on 28 Dec 1778 of Johan- 
nis Nicholai, who was born on 30 Nov 1778 to Marie Backer and 
Michael Nicholai. Page 57 in Vol. 1 lists Gerhard Alt and Geertruy 
Shaver as the sponsors for the baptism on 16 Nov 1780 of Geer- 
truy Welke, age 7 weeks, the daughter of Christian Welke and Mar- 
gariet Lotteridge. 

The foregoing information is significant for it indicates that 
the Aults lived within a reasonable distance of the town of Palatine 
in 1765 where Eberhardus was baptised at the age of 2 months. 
They may have been members of the congregation of the Reformed 
Protestant Dutch Church at Fonda from 1776 to 1780 when they 
sponsored the Snyder, Nicholai and Welke Baptisms. It is of spe- 
cial interest to note that Nicholas Ault, a declared Loyalist in 
1777, was not apprehended or taken into custody by the Ameri- 
can Patriots when he appeared in Fonda on 20 Dec 1778. 

Although the preceding information indicates that the Aults 
lived in the Mohawk valley, no family papers or records have been 
found that would indicate exactly where they lived. There was no 
official registration of births and deaths in the New York Colony 
prior to 1780, and when the first United States Census was taken 
in 1790 the Aults no longer lived in the Mohawk valley. 

While researching in the Library of Congress in 1974, the 
writer had the good fortune to discover an important document- 
ary essay in Ontario History. This was written by a retired Episco- 
pal clergyman, the Reverend Duncan Fraser, of Johnstown, N.Y. 
The essay "Sir John Johnson's Rent Roll of the Kingsborough 
Patent "29 is a most vital contribution to the genealogy of the first 
wave of Loyalists who settled along the north shore of the St.Law- 
rence river in the United Counties. 30 Many of the names that ap- 
pear on this Rent Roll also appear on the Mustering-Out Roll of 
the 1st Battalion of the Kings Royal Regiment of New York, and 
the Royal Highland Emigrants when they were disbanded in Mon- 
treal on 24 Dec 1783.31 Many of these names also appear on 
McNiff's map of 1786.32 a closer study of the Rent Roll, the 
Mustering-Out Roll, and McNiff's map will confirm the opinion of 
those who contend that many of the first Loyalist settlers in the 
United Counties were the tenant farmers from Johnson's Kings- 
borough Patent, and from other farms in the Mohawk valley. 

The Johnson's Kingsborough Patent, to be described later, was 
located north of the Mohawk river in what is now Montgomery 

57 



Co. Some of the Patent was laid out in 100 acre tenant farm 
Lots.33 Johannes Alt occupied Lot 42 W which was located in 
the southwestern part of the Patent. It was about 3 miles south- 
west of Johnstown, in the area between the Mohawk river and the 
main road to the west.34 Some of Johannes' neighbors were 
Johannes Hartle who farmed Lot 43 W on the north, Peter Boyce 
who farmed Lot 71 W on the east, and William Lotteridge who 
farmed Lot 15 W on the south.33 Johannes* annual tenant rent 
was £ 6/3 and his date of occupancy was listed on Sir John John- 
son's books as 25 March 1769. However, the Reverend Duncan 
Fraser states that Johannes was probably a tenant of Sir William 
Johnson in 1761, or earlier. 34 Sir William kept rather incomplete 
records and the date of occupancy recorded by Sir John is prob- 
ably incorrect. 

While attempting to determine the duration of Johannes' ten- 
ancy on this farm, I had the privilege of corresponding with the 
Reverend Fraser and with Wanda Burch who is in charge of the 
Johnson Papers35 a t Johnson Hall in Johnstown, N.Y. The 
"Papers" revealed that Johanis Alt petitioned to become a British 
subject in 1761. This indicates that he was living in the Mohawk 
valley in 1761 but the year he arrived is not recorded. The ab- 
stracted material received from Wanda Burch reads as follows: — 

"Vol. 3:357 — Act of Naturalization petitioned for John Ault 
and others by Peter Servis to the Assembly on March 10, 1761. 

Vol. 3:634 — Letter to Goldsbrow Banyar from Fort Johnson, 
dated Feb 14, 1762 stating that Johanis Alt is #35 on the list of 
names for the Patent. 

Vol. 5:27 ~ Jan 31, 1776 from Johannes Alt at Albany City 
Hall, promising to discharge his indebtedness to Johnson and other 
creditors and begging release from prison. 

Vol. 5:35 - Feb 21, 1776 Letter to Mrs. Gertrude Schuyler, 
offering a plea for Johannis Alter, imprisoned on a mortgage held 
by Mrs. Schuyler and asking acceptance of the mortgaged property 
for the debt. 

Vol. 5:175 — Same plea for John Spangenburg April 16, 1776. 

Vol. 5:196 -May 2, 1776 Letter from Abraham Yates regard- 
ing the above debts having been discharged. 

Vol. 6: 771 — Patent Rolls under grant of George III June 8, 
1769 lists Johannis Alt on Johnson Roll for grant Petition. 

Vol. 7:352 — Jan 27, 1770 Naturalization Act passed and lists 
Hannis Alt. 

Vol. 10:248 — Petition to the Council for a land grant from 

58 



William Johnson and associates, Mar 27, 1761 N.Y. lists Johannis 
Alt. 

Vol. 12:819 — April 27, 1770 Lists of those names to be in 
the Patent for the Northern tract of 80,000 acres in the rear of 
Kingsborough, alias Stuart's Purchase, included Johanis Alt (#54). 

Vol. 13:554 — March 5, 1770 Johnson sold 2 gallons Rum to 
HanisAltfor£/8." 

After Johannes* release from the Albany jail in May 1776, it 
seems likely that the Ault family sought employment and shelter 
in or near Fonda.36 No evidence has been found that any of the 
Aults went to Montreal with Sir John Johnson in June 1776. Dur- 
ing this unsettled period the Committee of Safety of Try on 
County37 investigated the Ault family, for it was their duty to 
determine who were Patriots, Tories or Loyalists. The judgment 
they seemed to have made was to declare that Johannes Alt, age 
60, was "Military Exempt" from service in the Tryon Militia.22 

In 1779 Johannes' sons, Nicholas age 29, Conrad age 27 and 
John age 20, declared themselves to be Loyalists by going to Mon- 
treal and joining Sir John Johnson's Kings Royal Regiment of New 
York t sometimes known as Johnson's Royal Greens or the Royal 
Yorkers. 38 The rest of the Ault family remained in Fonda, and 
for almost a year Johannes fitted out "Scouts" for their services to 
the British cause. During this period Johannes' loyalty to the 
Crown remained undetected. In mid 1780, Johannes decided that 
it was time to leave the Mohawk valley and the family separated. 
Frederick age 31, David age 28, Henri age 26 and George age 25, 
decided to remain in America. These four brothers did not stay 
in the valley for their names did not appear on the first U.S. Census 
that was taken in 1790. 

When the Ault family left Fonda for the Province of Quebec, 
their journey of approximately 250 miles to the refugee camps 
around and in Sorel39 was long and arduous. They probably went 
by foot along one of the Lake Champlain routes that will be de- 
scribed later. Johannes was age 64, Gertrude was age 55, the twins 
Michael and Sophia Maria were age 24, Everhart (Eberhardus) was 
age 16, and his sister Catharina was older. Shortly after they ar- 
rived in Sorel, Johannes, Michael and Everhart went to Montreal 
and joined the 1st Battalion of the K.R.R.N.Y and served in this 
unit until the war ended in 1783. 

One cannot refrain from pausing here to note that Johannes' 

grandfather, Jean Ault and his family, made a similar journey on 

| foot in 1670 when they decided to flee from the Huguenot perse- 



59 



cutions in France. The Jean Ault family left Maubeuge in France 
and followed the Meuse river valley to Venlo and Crefeld in the 
eastern Netherlands. 

At this point it would also seem desirable to pause and briefly 
look at some of the circumstances and events that influenced the 
lives of those who lived in the Mohawk valley and chose to leave 
during and after the American Revolution. 

Pound, in his book on Sir William Johnson (1715-1774) makes 
it abundantly clear that the Mohawk valley was Johnson terri- 
tory .40 The Johnson's Kingsborough Patent, exceeding 50,000 
acres, stretched along the north shore of the Mohawk river. It was 
strategically located. Sir William had been settling immigrants on 
this land for several years, for he planned to develop it into a pros- 
perous farming and trading area. He founded and built Johnstown 
that was officially named and recognized in 1770. He built the 
first school in the settlement, and he built the Episcopal Church 
that was destroyed by fire in 1836. He also built his baronial man- 
sion, Johnson Hall, at Johnstown. This was located about 4 miles 
back of the river where it had a commanding presence over the 
trade and commerce that went upstream or downstream. Johnson 
Hall is now a New York State Historical Landmark. 

The settlement of the Kingsborough Patent is of interest, for if 
one drew a north south line between the Mohawk river and Johns- 
town it would divide the Patent into an eastern and western por- 
tion. The eastern part of the Patent was being settled by Highland 
Scottish Catholics whose customs and Gaelic tongue were foreign 
to everyone except themselves. The western part of the Patent 
was being settled by immigrants whose surnames indicated that 
they were of German, Dutch, English, and Ulster Irish ancestry. 
They were nearly all Protestants, who were learning the English 
language. They had almost no contact with their Scottish neigh- 
bors.

When Sir William Johnson died at Johnson Hall in 1774, most 
of his property was inherited by his ,son Sir John Johnson who 
moved to Johnson Hall and took charge of the Johnson interests. 
He was an avowed Loyalist and a staunch supporter of George III 
of Britain. Although he lacked the gregarious nature of his father, 
most of the tenant farmers remained as his tenants, and remained 
loyal to him. When the unrest over British colonial rule spread to 
the Mohawk valley, Sir John began accumulating arms and ammu- 
nition. He then began distributing both to his personal militia and 
to his Indian friends of Loyalist persuasion. His supporters began 
drilling and holding military exercises on his property. This was 
intolerable to the Committee of Safety of Tryon County and they 
notified the Patriot authorities in Albany. In January 1776 Gen- 
eral Schuyler was sent from Albany to interview Sir John, and it is 
alleged that Sir John agreed to cease all military activity on his 
property. In June 1776 General Schuyler dispatched a Colonel 
Drayton to Johnson Hall with orders to arrest Sir John for violat- 



61 



ing the agreement. When Sir John was informed, in advance, of 
this turn of events, he hurriedly buried most of his papers and 
family silver on the grounds of Johnson Hail, lie then made a 9- 
mile journey to Fort Johnson where his supporters had gathered, 
and they all left for Montreal. 

There was no easy way to reach Montreal from Fort Johnson. 
Sir John Johnson's trail, as illustrated in Johnson of the Mohawks, 
would enable refugees to continue their travel from Crown Point 
through the heavily wooded mountainous hills that characterized 
the western shore of Lake Champlain. This route would lead them 
to the Richelieu river and the safety of Isle aux Noix41 and other 
British outposts along the river. They could travel by bateaux 
from Crown Point to the Richelieu, if Lake Champlain was calm 
and suitable for navigation. The route along the eastern shore of 
Lake Champlain was through relatively flat country. Those who 
chose to take this route on foot, by horseback, or by oxcart, 
would encounter numerous marshes, bogs, swamps, creeks and 
rivers before they reached the north end of the lake. If the weather 
was favorable, the trip could be made by bateaux from South Bay 
to the Richelieu. Regardless of the route that was chosen, it was 
about 60 miles from Fort Johnson to Crown Point or South Bay. 
Lake Champlain was about 125 miles long, and the trip down the 
Richelieu to Sorel added another 75 mEes to the journey. 

I have not been able to determine which route was followed in 
1776 by Sir John Johnson and the estimated 130 Highlanders and 
the 120 farmers and supporters. About 400 refugees joined the 
flight and after 19-21 days of difficult and exhausting travel, they 
began arriving in Montreal or in the refugee camps and temporary 
barracks around Chambly, Sorel, Machiche or Three Rivers. They 
received food, clothing and shelter at these sites until the summer 
of 1784.42 

In June 1776 Sir John received his Commission as a Lieuten- 
ant Colonel in the Home Forces, and shortly thereafter he was 
authorized to organize the 1st Battalion of the K.R.R.N.Y, This 
Battalion became a very effective home defense unit whose activi- 
ties extended along the border between Montreal and Niagara. On 
13 July 1780 Sir John was authorized to organize the 2nd Battal- 
ion of the K.R.R.N.Y. and on 2 Oct 1782, in recognition of his 
services to the Crown, he was advanced to the rank of Brigadier 
General. In May 1780 Sir John was the leader of a very unofficial 
action when he and a party of "Indians" made a foray on Johnson 
Hall. He recovered his papers and family silver that he had buried 
in June 1776. 

62 



During the period between 1780 and early 1784 the Aults, 
who were not serving in Sir John Johnson's Home Forces, were 
kept busy in the refugee camps by improving the quarters and 
building bateaux- On 24 Dec 1783 both Battalions of the K.R.R. 
N.Y. and the Royal Highland Emigrants were disbanded in Mon- 
treal. The Mustering-Out Roll of the 1st Battalion listed the fol- 
lowing Aults in Sir John Johnson's Company: — John Alt, soldier, 
age 52 and Conradt Ait, soldier, age 16. Captain John McDonelPs 
Company of Grenadiers listed Michael Alt, soldier, age 23 and 
Nicholas Alt, soldier, age 20. John Ault and his half brother Ever- 
hart were not listed in this Muster Roll. They may have been dis- 
charged earlier due to illness or injury. Their names were restored 
to a list of those who served in the K.R.R.N.Y. when the amended 
Loyalist list was published in 1885.43 

When the St. Lawrence river became navigable in the spring of 
1784 the Aults, and others, were ready to travel, by bateau or ba- 
teaux, upriver to Montreal where they would receive supplies and 
provisions. Their next stop would be at the settlement of New 
Johnstown (Cornwall) that was located on the north shore of the 
St. Lawrence river at the foot of the Long Sault Rapids. After a 
brief stop at Montreal and a portage around the Lachine rapids, 
the journey to New Johnstown was a tedious exercise in paddling, 
rowing, poling and sailing their heavily laden bateaux through the 
Lake St. Francis section of the St. Lawrence river. The short stop 
at New Johnstown enabled them to obtain a few supplies and 
some information. They drew lots here for a grant of Crown land. 
The Aults, and others, whose grants were in the western part of 
Twp. No. 3 (Osnabruck), in Twp. No. 4 (Williamsburg) or in Twp. 
No. 5 (Matilda) now faced the most formidable part of their jour- 
ney when they left New Johnstown. The Long Sault rapids 
dropped 30 feet in VA miles, and the flow of water was heavy, 
strong and treacherous. The rapids were relatively shallow along 
the south shore where the St. Regis Indians were encamped. Along 
the north shore the rapids were stronger, and one encountered 
more dangerous pools and deceptive eddies. The trip upstream 
along either shore was a life-threatening task for the bateaux had 
to be pulled, pushed, poled and even carried in some places. It 
seems likely that the bateaux were unloaded and the contents car- 
ried by hand to a safe place above the head of the rapids. There 
were no roads along either shore to help one travel by foot, horse 
or oxcart. It was an exhausting experience before the Aults and 
their colleagues reached their destination in Twp. No. 5. They 

63 



I 



stopped on the north shore of a quiet bay that faced the south. 
They were about 105 miles upstream from Montreal. This settle- 
ment became Iroquois. 

According to Pringle44 a n estimated 1,462 Loyalists from the 
K.R.R.N.Y. and the Royal Highland Emigrants were the first set- 
tlers in the Counties.30 They were considered privileged grantees 
and they were directed to their grants of Crown land by the sur- 
veyors, or their deputies. When they occupied their farm Lot, 
their name was written on the Lot on the surveyors map. They 
were thus acknowledged as the lawful occupant of their Crown 
grant for a period of 12 months. The grantee was required to im- 
prove his land during this first year. It was also necessary for his 
farm to pass the inspection of a Loyalist Commission who would 
then declare the owner as eligible to apply for a Deed or Patent. 
All of this did not proceed as smoothly as planned for the number 
of early settlers was greater than the authorities at New Johns- 
town could handle. As a result, some of the settlers occupied their 
farm Lots before they received their "Tickets of Location" — which 
were issued later. 

In an effort to improve the land granting process, Land Boards 
were established. These functioned from 1789 to 1794. From 
1794 to midsummer 1796, the local magistrates were given the 
task. By 1796 it appears that most of the Loyalists, who were 
eligible to receive land via a "Ticket of Location," had been settled 
in the Counties. However, there were still some Loyalists who had 
not yet received their land via a "Ticket of Location" and some of 
the Loyalists* sons and daughters were now eligible for grants of 
Crown land. A more central control of the land granting process 
seemed desirable, and in mid 1796 land granting became a func- 
tion of the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, in Council. Hence- 
forth, anyone who considered themselves eligible for a grant of 
Crown land, was required to submit proof that he was an E.L. 
(Empire Loyalist) or the child of an E.L. His Petition and affidav- 
its were then submitted to the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, 
in Council and if a grant was approved, an O.C. (Order in Council) 
was issued to the Petitioner. Genealogists and Historians are in- 
debted to William D. Reid who spent most of his life collecting 
and compiling a list of the sons and daughters of the Ontario Loy- 
alists who received their grants of Crown land via "Petition. "45 

Differences of opinion and interpretation as to who was eligi- 
ble to receive how much land existed from the beginning of set- 
tlement. The rules seemed to change when Britain wanted to 

64 



speed up, or slow down, the rate of settlement. The amount of 
land that the first Loyalist settlers received as their initial allot- 
ment has recently been explained by Mezaks.46 "The acquisition 
of land, however, was not merely a matter of individual preference 
and action. Settlement was regulated by a series of executive and 
administrative decisions. To start with, there was a class of privi- 
leged grantees such as Loyalists, Military Claimants and Govern- 
ment Officials who received their land by statutory right. In 1783 
Governor Haldiman set up a scale of grants for the Loyalists and 
discharged soldiers. Every head of a family was allowed 100 acres, 
plus an additional 50 acres for every member of his family. Men 
who had served under arms were to receive grants from 50 to 1000 
acres depending upon rank. Soon the grants were increased. All 
heads of families who had already improved their lands were 
granted an additional 200 acres. The allotment to private soldiers 
was increased to 300 acres with senior officers getting up to 5000 
acres. These grants were free of fees. The privileged grantees also 
claimed exemption from settlement duties." 

The Aults and other Loyalists who received their land via a 
"Ticket of Location" or via a "Petition" and went on to Patent 
their land, received a parchment Deed embossed with the Seal of 
George III. No Deeds issued to an Ault have been located by this 
compiler. The last known Ault owner of parchment Deeds was 
John Livingston Ault and the fate of these Deeds is not known at 
this time. 

Before we return to the life of Johannes Ault, it seems desira- 
ble that some time should be devoted to a number of political, 
administrative and geographical decisions that were made by the 
British government. These affected the lives of all who lived in the 
St. Lawrence valley. 

After New France became the British Colony of Quebec in 
1763, the lands west of the present Ontario-Quebec became 
known as Western Quebec. From 1784 to 1791 the Loyalists who 
settled in Western Quebec lived under the prevailing French laws 
and administrative customs. This was unacceptable to the new- 
comers, and they Petitioned the Governor General for a change 
to British laws and administration. As a result, the Constitutional 
Act of 1791 was enacted. Quebec East became the Province of 
Lower Canada, and Quebec West became the Province of Upper 
Canada. Each had their own laws, administration, and customs. 
From 1842 to 1867, the Province of Upper Canada became known 
as Canada West. At the time of Confederation in 1867, Canada 
West became the Province of Ontario. 

65 



■ : 



A most important geographical decision was made in 1781 
when the Township, a 9 x 12 mile section of land, was established 
as the territorial unit for surveying and settlement purposes. If 
one traveled from east to west, starting at the present Ontario- 
Quebec border, one would pass through the following "Front" 
Townships — Lake (became Lancaster), Twp. No. 1 (became Char- 
lottenburg), No. 2 (became Cornwall), No. 3 (became Osnabruck), 
No. 4 (became Williamsburg), No. 5 (became Matilda). These 
Townships fronted on the St. Lawrence river and their correspond- 
ing "Back" Twps. were Lochiel, Kenyon, Roxborough, Finch, 
Winchester and Mountain. Each of these Twps. contained rows of 
200 acre farm Lots, numbered in an east to west fashion, with 37 
farm Lots in each row. The first row of farm Lots fronting on the 
St. Lawrence was known as Concession I. This was followed by 
Concession II, III, IV etc. until one reached the northern bound- 
ary of the Twp. Most of the farm Lots in the first three Conces- 
sions were taken up by the Loyalists who received their land via a 
Ticket of Location. Their sons and daughters who claimed their 
land via a Petition received their land in the Back Townships. 

As the St. Lawrence valley became more settled, the fine hand 
and planning of Sir John Johnson became more evident for the 
territory east of New Johnstown became the home land of the 
Royal Highland Emigrants whose dialect and customs were totally 
incomprehensible to the K.R.R.N.Y. Protestants who lived in the 
territory west of New Johnstown (see diagram page 61). 

Another event of significance to the Aults and others was the 
1789 proclamation of Lord Dorchester, the Governor. He decreed 
that special recognition should be accorded to those British sub- 
jects — who had lived in British Colonial America before the Revo- 
lution; who had been loyal to the Crown; who had migrated to 
British North America (Canada) during and after the American 
Revolution, and especially to those who had served the Crown as 
soldiers and officers. The Proclamation stated that henceforth 
those individuals in the foregoing categories, and their descendants, 
would be privileged to add E.L. (Empire Loyalist) to their names. 
This was to be considered an hereditary Badge of Honor. In 1914 
the United Empire Loyalists' Association was founded to unite the 
descendants of these Loyalists.47 

During the early years of settlement the Aults, and their con- 
temporaries, were so busy wresting a living from the land that 
keeping any kind of a family record was a difficult task. Notes, 
that were often incomplete, were sometimes made in the family 

66 




Bible. No Census was taken until 1851 and no Vital Statistics 
were kept in Ontario prior to 1869.48 Fortunately the records of 
some of the first Churches that were built in the "Front" Twps. 
survived the ravages of time, fire and flood. I am indebted to 
Mrs. L. Merkley of Mesa, Arizona for information on Ault Births, 
Marriages and Deaths that she abstracted from the Church and 
other records.49 

During my childhood in Ottawa, I remember that Aunt Mary's 
Bible was known as the main source of information on the family 
Births, Marriages and Deaths. I last saw this large Bible in 1934 
when Aunt Mary and Aunt Ada, who were my grandfather's sis- 
ters, were living in Morrisburg. The Bible was at least 12x8x5 
inches in size and the last few pages were printed with decorative 
borders and some of the pages were labeled Births, Baptisms, Wed- 
dings and Deaths. Announcements, Obituaries and news items 
were pasted on some of the pages and different persons' handwrit- 
ing clearly indicated that more than one individual kept these rec- 
ords. Some of the information prior to 1854 was undoubtedly 
transferred to this Bible from earlier Ault records. This Bible was 
"The Cottage Bible and Family Expositor containing the Old and 
New Testament to which has been added the Reference and Marg- 
inal Readings of the Polyglot Bible as edited by the Reverend Wil- 
liam Patton." This Bible was published in 2 Vol. in 1854 in Hart- 
ford, Conn. Vol. 1 is missing and Vol. 2 initially owned by Nicho- 
las N. Ault (1795-1871) was inherited by Aunt Mary Louisa Ault 
who, before she died, wrote that it was to be entrusted to the care 
of Percy Edwin Ault and in turn to his son Edwin F. Ault Esq. of 
Weston, Ont. 

Another Ault Bible that contained vital information was "The 
Illustrated Polyglot Bible containing the Old and New Testament" 
that was published in 1869 by J.W. Goodspeed & Co. of 37 Park 
Row in N.Y. and entered by William Flint under an Act of Con- 
gress. This Bible was owned by Simeon Ault (1824-1905) and 
records were kept in it by Mrs. Charles Sidney Ault. It is now 
under the care of Edwin F. Ault. 

Genealogical material from both of these Bibles was copied by 
Helene Bromwell Ault in 1946 and it was used in her Typescript 
"The Aults in Ontario." In 1976 Edwin F. Ault kindly sent 
photocopies of the genealogical material in both Bibles to me. 50 

In addition to being eligible for grants of Crown land, Johan- 
nes, and many of his neighbors from the Mohawk valley, who had 
lost land and property due to the Revolutionary War, were eligible 
to file a Claim for Compensation for their losses. Britain estab- 

67 



lished a Commission for this purpose and directed them "To In- 
quire into the Circumstances and former Fortunes of such Persons 
as are reduced to Distress over the unhappy Dissensions in Amer- 
ica. "51 The task of the Commission seemed endless, for it required 
more than 10 years to complete the work they began in 1784. 
They did indeed "Inquire" with such ponderous "vigor" that it is 
a wonder they ever completed their work. Brown52 and countless 
others who have written extensively on the Loyalists, point out 
that many Loyalists did not bother to file Claims. Others died be- 
fore their Claims were heard or settled. The small Claim filed by 
Johannes illustrates the frustrating minutiae that the Claimants 
and the Commission had to face. On 16 Feb 1788 Johannes sub- 
mitted his Claim to the Loyalist Commission in Montreal. He 
identified himself as follows: — 

—That he was Johannes Ault, late of Try on Co. in the Colony 
of New York. 

—That he was born in Germany and came to America 35 years 
ago. 

—That he lived near Johnstown when the Revolution began. 

—That he lost 2 horses, 3 hogs, 7 sheep, furniture, cloathing 
and provisions to the rebels and to the Indians. 

—That he had sent 3 sons to the British Army in 1777. 

—That he had joined Sir John Johnson's 1st Battalion of the 
K.R.R.N.Y. and had served until the end of the war. 

—That he had lands but sold them. 

—That he now lived in the 5th Township. 53 

In addition to the foregoing, Johannes supplied the Commis- 
sion with a copy of the List of Losses that he had previously given 
to a Captain Burns. 

"Estimate of the real and personal estate of John Ault of the 
County of Tryon in the Province of New York, according to 
the value thereof mTQSil 1785

I have not been able to determine when, how, or if, this Claim 
for Compensation was settled. The Archives of Ontario do not 
have any information on the Claim. 54 

Johannes had better luck in Cornwall in 1784, for he was on 
the list of privileged Loyalist grantees who drew lots for a grant of 
Crown land. He drew the E l A of Lot 19 in Concession I in Matil- 
da, and with the assistance of the Surveyors staff, he occupied his 
grant almost immediately. His handwritten "Ticket of Location" 
was not issued until 20 June 1786.55 The front side read as fol- 
lows: — 





Johnstown the 20th June 1786 


Township No. 5 






East half of Lot 19 in front 








John Ault 



The handwritten reverse side reads as follows: — 



Ault John 

I hereby certify that 
this Ticket of Location 
is in the handwriting of 
Mr. McNiff and that 
such Ticket has ever 
been considered by 
the holder and by me

formerly surveyor 

for the Eastern 

District

Johannes', now John, name appears on this Lot on McNiff 's 
map of 1 Nov 1786 and his farm of 142 acres was next to that of 
his son Everhart, who occupied 137 acres of the W 1 ^ of Lot 19 in 
Concession I in Matilda. 

By 1787 Johannes had cleared and improved enough of his 
land to pass the Inspection of the Loyalist Commission. On 5 May 



69 



■tjli 






1787 the Commission reported that John Ault and Everhart Ault 
had cleared and planted 9 acres of Lot 19, that they owned a horse 
and that Lot 19 was occupied by 2 men and 1 woman. 56 The 
Commission also declared that Johannes was eligible to Patent his 
land. Before Johannes died, he apparently arranged to have his 
son Michael inherit the EV 2 of Lot 19. On 9 July 1796 Michael 
Ault, as the eldest son and heir at Law of the late John Ault, re- 
ceived a grant of the W/2 of Lot 19 in Concession I in Matilda 
from John Ault^S ( se e Michael Ault). Michael patented this land 
on 23 Mar 1807, and sold the entire 142 acres of this farm to Wil- 
liam Stamford on 7 Jan 1808.57 

On 9 Nov 1787, Johannes received an additional grant of the 
N.E.V^ of Lot 18 in Concession VI in Matilda. The N.E.U of this 
Lot was patented by a John Ault in 1836. 

One cannot separate Johannes Ault and his family from the 
events and circumstances of their time in North America. It is evi- 
dent that they were strong healthy individuals. They survived an 
Atlantic crossing of 6 to 8 weeks. Their 27 years (1753-1780) in 
Colonial Pennsylvania and New York did not dampen their zest 
for living. They survived a family separation in 1777-1780 when 
Frederick, David, Henri and George decided to remain in America 
while the rest of the family chose to be Loyalists and fled to 
Quebec. 

Some of the Aults and their children who settled in the St. 
Lawrence valley and devoted their time, talents and hard work to 
farming and business enterprises, became reasonably successful 
and secure in their communities. In the last quarter of the 19th 
century good land became scarce and some of the more venture- 
some Aults decided to seek their fortunes elsewhere. A few suc- 
ceeded in becoming anonymous, and a few became founders of 
their line of Aults in a new area. A small part of their life and 
times will be related in the nine generations of Aults that follow in 
genealogical sequence.

NICHOLAS AULT AND HIS DESCENDANTS 

2 N 2 

NICHOLAS AULT 1748-1812 

CATHARINE LOUCKS -after 1812 

(Nicholas Ault, Johannes) 

Nicholas Ault, the Loyalist soldier of Osnabruck Twp. was the 
first of 9 children of Johannes Ault and his first wife Hannah Hen- 
kel. He was born on 7 Jan 1748 in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, 
and his parents brought him to British Colonial America in 1753 
when he was age 5. He died, age 64, on his Crown grant farm on 
the WV2 of Lot 34 in Concession I in Osnabruck Twp. in Stormont 
Co. He was probably buried in the old Trinity United Church 
Cemetery in the settlement that became Aultsville. This Cemetery 
was located on Lot 34 northwest of the junction of Dundas and 
Palace Streets as illustrated in Beldens 1879 map of Aultsville.58 

Nicholas Ault and Catharine Loucks were married ca 1784 in 
Williamsburg Twp. according to a notation made in a family Bible 
by his son Nicholas N. Ault. Catharine Loucks was the daughter 
of the Loyalist Richard Loucks Jr. and Dorothy Fox (Foucks). 
The Loucks lived in Williamsburg Twp. until ca 1788-1789 when 
they moved to Osnabruck Twp. and began farming 100 acres of 
the WV2 of Lot 31 in Concession III. Catharine died sometime 
after 1812 on the Nicholas Ault farm, and she was probably bur- 
ied beside her husband. 

Nicholas Ault and Catharine Loucks had 6 children. The first 

2 children were born in Williamsburg Twp. and the next 4 children 
were born in Osnabruck Twp.

Nicholas Ault was age 5 when his parents brought him to Brit- 
ish Colonial America in 1753. This was confirmed by the 28 Aug 
1753 will of his grandfather Jacobus, who was living in retirement 
in the Netherlands. In her will of 18 June ±755 Nicholas' great 
grandmother, Sophia Adams Ault, also confirmed that the Johan- 
nes Ault family went to the Philadelphia area of British Colonial 

72 



America in 1753. Sophia left her collection of books, and the 
Prayer Book that belonged to Nicholas* great grandfather, Johan- 
nes Ault, to Nicholas. Sophia also left the black clock that came 
from her mother's family, the Backers, to Nicholas. No further 
information regarding this inheritance has been found. 

After the Johannes Ault family moved to the Mohawk river 
valley ca 1761, Nicholas spent his formative years on the family 
tenant farm in the Kingsborough Patent of Sir William Johnson. 
Many of these farmers and their sons became members of John- 
son's personal militia, although they avoided using that name. 
When the Johnson properties were seized in 1776, the Ault family 
left their tenant farm and moved to the Caughnawaga, now Fonda, 
area, where Nicholas lived until 1777. 

The records of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of 
Fonda lists Nicholas Alt and Cathy Link as sponsors of the bap- 
tism on 20 Dec 1778, of Caty Snyder, the daughter of Adam Sny- 
der and Marie Link. 59 

In 1777 Nicholas Ault and his brothers Conrad and John de- 
cided to declare their support of the Loyalist cause. They went to 
Montreal, where they joined Lt. Col. Sir John Johnson's 1st Bat- 
talion of the K.R.R.N.Y. Nicholas served in this Battalion until 
the end of the war. When the Battalion was disbanded on 24 Dec 
1783, Nicholas was listed on the Mustering Out Roll as Nicholas 
Alt, age 20, a soldier in Capt. John McDoneU's Company of Grena- 
diers.^ 

After the K.R.R.N.Y. disbanded, Nicholas joined his family in 
one of the refugee camps, and when they made their journey up 
the St. Lawrence river in the early summer of 1784, Nicholas was 
with them. When the Aults stopped at New Johnstown, Nicholas 
drew lots for a grant of Crown land. His Ticket of Location is 
only partially legible due to ink smearing and fading^l

On 24 Nov 1785, a printed Ticket of Location in the following

ton for the Lieutenant Governor, and issued by the District Sur- 
veyor General, John Collins. The large letters represent the print- 
ing and the small letters represent handwriting. It read as follows:

Nicholas Ault appears to have occupied the WA of Lot 34 in 
Concession I in Osnabruck Twp. in 1785, or possibly 1784, and 
this would indicate that there may have been an error in writing 
Michael Ault's name on this Lot on McNiffs map of 1786. 

The WA of Lot 34 became the Crown grant home farm of 
Nicholas Ault. He built his pioneer settler's log cabin home near 
the St. Lawrence river on this 100 acre farm, and he raised his 
family here. According to Patent Book C Folio 193 Nicholas Pat- 
ented this property on 12 Mar 1797.62 At a later date, Nicholas 
obtained the EV& of Lot 34 in Concession I from Alex Rose. 

In addition to the 100 acres of Crown land that Nicholas re- 
ceived for his services to the Crown as a soldier in the K.R.R.N.Y., 
he was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land, 
because he was the son of the Loyalist soldier Johannes Ault. On 
13 Nov 1787, Nicholas received a grant of 200 acres of Crown land 
in Concession VIII in Osnabruck via the following instrument:— 63

Exc W.C. 

On 12 Mar 1797, Nicholas Ault patented 193 acres of Lot 18 
in Concession VIII in Osnabruck Twp. according to an entry made 
in Patent Book C Folio 193.64 

Nicholas Ault was also granted 100 acres of Crown land in the 
WA of Lot 19 in Concession VII in Osnabruck Twp., and David 
Jacocks was granted the EV6 of this Lot. On 1 Mar 1797, Ault and 
Jacocks patented all 200 acres of Lot 19 as recorded in Patent 
Book C Folio 289.65 

In making a judgment from the available records, it seems that 
Nicholas and Catharine Ault's daughter Catherine and their son 
John Nicholas were born while they were living in Williamsburg 
Twp., and the Aults did not move to Osnabruck Twp. until late 
1788 or early 1789. Catharine Loucks* father, Richard Loucks 
Jr., farmed the W 1 ^ of Lot 31 in Concession II in Osnabruck Twp., 
and her relatives, Joseph and Peter, farmed Lot 33 in Concession I 
in Osnabruck Twp. These farms were all adjacent to one another. 
The Aults and the Loucks had served together in Capt. John 
McDonelPs Company of Grenadiers, and it was undoubtedly advan- 
tageous for these families to settle and farm together, and to join 
together in building and harvesting "Bees." 

Within a few years the Aults outgrew the pioneer settler's log 
cabin, and a new home was built on the same Lot 34, closer to the 
road that ran through the settlement — the future King's Highway 
or York St. I understand, but have no proof, that this house and 



75 



the Nicholas Ault Bible and records were destroyed by fire. Short- 
ly thereafter, Nicholas and his son Nicholas N. built the first part 
of the red brick house that was located nearby on Lot 4 (on Aults- 
ville map). This house faced the King's Highway and it was the 
only remaining Ault-owned and Ault-occupied house left in Aults- 
ville when it was demolished by Ontario Hydro in 1957. 

During the early years of settlement it was necessary for each 
resident to take an active part in local affairs. Nicholas Ault served 
as a member of the Jury on several occasions between 1789-1792 
when the Court of General Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the 
District of Lunenburg met in Osnabruck.66 

Catharine Loucks, as the daughter of the Loyalist soldier Rich- 
ard Loucks Jr., was eligible to Petition for a grant of Crown land 
when she married or became 21 years of age. The Upper Canada 
Land Petitions, 1804-1806, reveal that Catharine Loucks Peti- 
tioned for a grant of Crown land on 22 Dec 1805.

Concession XII in Mountain Twp.,69 an d on 19 Oct 1811, her 
husband Nicholas willed the WV2 of Lot 6 in Concession XII to 
their daughter Catharine Ault. 

The first Ault will probated in Canada was written by Nicholas 
Ault, and it is representative of the wills written at that time. 
Nicholas wrote his will on 19 Oct 1811. It was witnessed by John 
Tuttle, Richard Loucks and Adam Empy. It was probated on 24 
Mar 1812 before Judge Anderson in the Surrogate Court of the 
Eastern District of Upper Canada at Cornwall — Reg. B., Folio 75-

In the years alloted to him as a Loyalist resident of Upper Can- 
ada, Nicholas Ault appears to have provided his family with an 
ample inheritance of farmland. It should be noted that his will 
specified that the youngest children, Richard and Dorothy, should 
be given a good and common education in the English tongue. 
This is significant and important, tfor the Loyalist settlers in Stor- 
mont and Dundas were largely of German and Dutch origin. The 
older people had lived near one another in the Mohawk valley, 
they had served together in Johnson's regiment and now, towards 
the conclusion of their final migration, they had settled on their 
own land. They had worked, socialized and worshipped together. 
Their religious affiliations that had been Lutheran and Dutch Re- 
formed in the Mohawk valley were now Lutheran. Their clergy- 
men preached in German although the conversations among the 
community elders was a mixture of German and Flemish. Many 
of these German-Dutch settlers recognized that Upper Canada was 
destined to become English-speaking Canada. Nicholas Ault's chil- 
dren would be ready for this change.

acres of Lot 23 Concession VI Rideau Front, Nepean Twp. 

When John Nicholas Ault's father died in 1812, his will read 
as follows: — "I give and bequeath unto my beloved son John

34 above described, in fee simple after the decease of my widow 
Catharine or her marriage; also I give and bequeath unto my son 
John Lot 32 in the Third Concession in the Township of Osna- 
bruck of 200 acres — in fee simple — as well as household furni- 
ture and farming utensils that my widow may die possessed of." 

When John Nicholas Ault's mother, Catharine Loucks, died 
sometime after 1812, John Nicholas inherited the WA of Lot 34 in 
Concession I in Osnabruck. Thjs was the Crown grant farm that 
his father received via his Ticket of Location on 24 Nov 1785. 

In 1822, John Nicholas received the Deed, witnessed by Rich- 
ard Ault for 100 acres of the E 1 ^ of Lot 31 in Concession I in 
Osnabruck from his brother Nicholas N. Ault and his wife Mar- 
garet Ross. The last Ault owner of this property was Wellington 
Ault in 1879. 

On 3 Mar 1842, John Nicholas Ault gave the Deed to 100 
acres of land to his son James Richard Ault, and on 9 Nov 1852 he 
gave the Deed to 100 acres of land to his son William Robert Ault. 
This 200 acres may have been Lot 33 Concession VI Rideau Front, 
Nepean Twp. that John Nicholas received via Petition and his O.C. 
of 7 May 1810. 

John Nicholas Ault was a farmer and local business man who 
spent his lifetime on his farm in Osnabruck Twp. He was active in 
the local political, social, and business affairs that fostered the 
growth of Charlesville/Aultsville. In 1858 he served as an Elder in 
the old St. Matthews Church in Osnabruck.

Executors £7/10/ per annum for 4 years after April 1st last passed. 
Also the west V6 of Lot 19 in the 7th Concession." 

No information has been located that would indicate how long 
Peter and Rosa lived on the Lot 34 property. His wife Rosa may 
have died when Sophia was born in 1811. In 1812 Peter, age 21, 
joined a unit of the Dundas Militia and served in the War of 1812 
until the war ended in 1814. After the war Peter and Althea 
Moseley were married and they lived on the EV6 of Lot 34 until 
they moved to East Rushford, in New York State, sometime be- 
tween 1816 and 1823. Peter's brother John Nicholas Ault sold 



84 




the EV6 of Lot 34 in Concession 1 to Thomas Simon Clark in 
1823. 

As the son of Nicholas Ault the Loyalist soldier, Peter N. Ault 
was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land 
when he reached the age of 21. A search of the Upper Canada 
Land Petitions on Microfilm C 1610 reveals that on 12 Jan 1815 
Peter N. Ault filed the usual Petition for a grant of 200 acres of 
Crown land via John Crysler Esq. His Petition was sworn to by S. 
Anderson of Cornwall on 12 Jan 1815. His O.C. was issued on 
19 Apr 1816 and he received Lot 22 in Concession I in Cartwright 
Twp.

NICHOLAS N. AULT 1793-1871 

MARGARET ROSS 1797-1869 

(Nicholas N. Ault, Nicholas, Johannes) 

Nicholas N. Ault of Osnabruck, one of 6 children of the Loyal- 
ist soldier Nicholas Ault and Catharine Loucks was born on 10 Sept 
1793 in the pioneer settlers log cabin that his father had built on 
the WA of Lot 34 in Concession I in Osnabruck Twp. He died, 
age 78, on 6 Feb 1871 in the house he had built on Lot 4 in Aults- 
ville. He was buried in Woodlands East Presbyterian and Anglican 
Cemetery in Woodlands in Osnaburck Twp. His gravestone was re- 
moved from the Woodlands Cemetery in 1958 before it was cov- 
ered by the developing Lake St. Lawrence. It was inscribed — "N.N. 
Ault, died Feb 6 1871, age 77 years, 4 months and 26 days" and it 
has been placed in the north wall of the Pioneer Memorial that was 
built by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission in the Crysler Farm 
Battlefield Park in Dundas County, Ontario. The Memorial is lo- 
cated near the entrance to Upper Canada Village. 

Nicholas N. Ault and Margaret Ross were married on 5 Dec 
1813 in Osnabruck Twp. according to the Williamsburg Parish 
Register, Liber B on Marriages. 

Margaret Ross of Osnabruck, the daughter of Jacob Ross and 
the legendary Christianne Merkley was born on 22 June 1797 in 
Osnabruck Twp. She died, age 72, after 10 years of a lingering ill- 
ness, on 19 Feb 1869 in the Nicholas N. Ault home in Aultsville. 
She was buried in Woodlands East Presbyterian and Anglican 
Cemetery. Her gravestone was also removed from the Woodlands 
Cemetery before 1958 and it was placed next to her husband's in 
the Pioneer Memorial. It was inscribed — "Margaret, wife of Nich- 

85 



olas N. Ault, died Feb 19 1869, age 71 years, 7 months, 28 days." 
It is one of four Ault gravestones in the Pioneer Memorial. 

Nicholas N. Ault and Margaret Ross had 9 children, all of 
whom were born in the Nicholas N. Ault home in Charlesville/ 
Aultsville.

Nicholas N. Ault was age 19 when his father died in 1812 and 
the item in the will of 19 Oct 1811 referring to Nicholas read as 
follows: — "To my beloved son, Nicholas Ault, at the time of his 
coming and being of age 21 — a pair of horses, a sleigh and har- 
ness, one plough, one harrow with iron teeth — to be given to him 
by my son John and also ordering my son John to cause to be 
bought a good and convenient farm of 100 acres or more, ordering 
him my son Nicholas to do and perform service and labor on and 
with my son John until he shall lawfully become of age 21 years. 
Also to my son Nicholas the West l A of Lot 18 in the 8th Conces- 
sion in Osnabruck as well as 1 cow and 2 sheep in fee simple." The 
foregoing clearly indicates that Nicholas N., age 19, was left in the 
custody of his older brother John Nicholas who was then age 30. 
When Nicholas N. became age 21, John Nicholas purchased 100 
acres of the E V2 of Lot 31 in Concession I in Osnabruck for Nich- 
olas N. For some unrecorded reason Nicholas N. and his wife Mar- 
garet Ross conveyed this farm to John Nicholas Ault in 1822. The 
papers were witnessed by Richard Ault. 

When Nicholas N. Ault became age 21 he inherited, from his 
father, the WA of Lot 18 in Concession VII in Osnabruck Twp. 

As the son of Nicholas Ault the Loyalist soldier, Nicholas N. 
Ault was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown 
land. His Petition and Affidavits, obtained from the Upper Can- 
ada Land Petitions, A Bundle, 10, R.G.I., L 3 Vol. 5, 1811-1816, 
Microfilm C 1610, reads as follows: —

"York 10th Feb 1816 

The Petition of Nicholas Ault for land as a S.E.L. received 
8th Mar 1816 from John Crysler by I. Imoyle. On the U.E. 
list — Nicholas Alt of Osnabruck. In Council 19 Apr 1816 
granted 200 acres. Warrent #131 issued 23 April 1816. En- 
tered in Land Book 1 page 336" 

The preceding O.C. issued to Nicholas Ault was for 200 acres 
of Crown land in Lot 1 in Concession II in Cartwright Twp. 

Although Nicholas N. Ault was a farmer and local merchant he 
served, as others did, in the Milita. He was a private in the Second 
Regiment of the Dundas Militia which was under the command of 
Capt George Merkley. During the War of 1812-1814 he served as 
a private from 2 July 1812 to 24 Dec 1812 in Capt William Mor- 
gan's Flank Company of the First Regiment of the Stormont Mi- 
litia. During the Rebellion of 1837-1838 Nicholas was a Capt in 
charge of a Company of Stormont Militia during the 3-day Battle 
of the Windmill at Prescott. 

Sometime after the War of 1812 Nicholas N. Ault received 
100 acres of Crown land in the WV6 of Lot 4 in Concession V in 
the Twp. of Madoc — for his services in the War of 1812. 

As the daughter of Jacob Ross the Loyalist soldier, Margaret 
Ross was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown 
land when she became age 21 or married. Her Petition of 19 Jan 
1816 was received by the Council in York on 8 Mar 1816. The 
Petition received favorable action and her O.C. was issued on 19 
Apr 1816. She received 200 acres of Lot 2 in Concession II in 
Cartwright Twp. 

In addition to his interest in farming, Nicholas was active in 
the business and political life of the developing area. He devoted 

88 



r :'. 



considerable time and effort in developing the Ault General Store 
and to the family dealings in lumber, coal, potash, flour, grain and 
feeds and general supplies suitable for a ready market in the farm- 
land of Osnabruck Twp. He bought, sold and traded land. He en- 
larged the red brick house that he and his father had built on 
Lot 4 facing the main road through the village. This house served 
as an Inn at one time when it became a place where one could stop 
and rest or change horses or carriages during a journey along the 
Kings Highway. By the time this house, last lived in by Mrs. Charles 
Sidney Ault, was demolished in 1956-1957 when the St. Lawrence 
Power Dam and Seaway was built at Cornwall, it was about 156 
years old and at least 5 generations of Aults had been born and 
raised in it. 

When the 1851 census was taken in Stormont County the 
occupants of the Nicholas N. Ault household were listed as Nicho- 
las N. Ault, age 58, a farmer and his wife Margaret, age 54; their 
son Samuel a merchant and his wife Catharine; their son Isaiah 
Richard a merchant ; their son Jacob Sidney a blacksmith and their 
son Simeon Nicholas a laborer. James Ira and George Edgar were 
minors age 18 and 11. Listed as living in the same household were 
Edwin age 4, Ada age 3 and Alice a newborn who were the chil- 
dren, of Samuel Ault and Catherine Valentin Loucks. 

When Nicholas N. Ault died in 1871 in Aultsville, his descend- 
ants were well established in many business enterprises.

RICHARD AULT 1803- 
ELIZABETH LOUCKS 

(Richard Ault, Nicholas, Johannes) 

Richard Ault of Osnabruck, 1 of 6 children of the Loyalist 
soldier Nicholas Ault and Catharine Loucks (Nicolaus and Cata- 
rina) was born ca 1803 on the Nicholas Ault farm located on the 
WA of Lot 34 in Concession I in Osnabruck Twp. His death date 
and burial site have not been located. Richard Ault and Elizabeth 
Loucks were married on 25 May 1825 in Cornwall. 

Elizabeth Loucks — no information except to note that she 
was undoubtedly of U.E.L. stock. 

Richard Ault and Elizabeth Loucks had 1 child. 

4 N 28 Jacob Ault, b 17 Oct 1826, d 

Richard was about 8 years of age when his father wrote his 
will on 19 Oct 1811. Item: — "To my beloved son Richard Ault,

son John to pruchase a good and convenient farm of 100 acres or 
more, at his, the said Richard becoming of the age 21; also a pair 
o£ horses, sleigh and harness, one cow and 2 sheep, one plough and 
one harrow with iron teeth. Ordering my son John to cause to be 
given unto him, my son Richard, a good decent and common edu- 
cation in the English tongue; and also ordering and requiring my 
son Richard to do and behave himself as becometh and do such 
labor for my son John as he may reasonably require until he shall 
become of the age of 21 years and to be furnished by my son John 
decent wearing apparel and diet in sickness and in health until the 
said Richard so become of the age of 21 years." 

It is of interest to note that the will specified that Richard was 
to have an education in the English language — and that his sister 
Dorothy was to have the same type of education. 

Richard Auit, as the son of the Loyalist soldier Nicholas Ault 
was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land 
when he became 21 years of age. He submitted the usual Petition 
and his O.C. was issued on 17 Feb 1825 granting him Lot 11 in 
Concession V north of Egremont Road in Warwick Twp. accord- 
ing to the Land Records in the Arch, of Ontario. 

According to the Williamsburg Parish Register, Liber B. Rich- 
ard Ault and Margaret Eamand, both of Osnabruck, were married 
on 28 Aug 1827. Question ? ~ Did Richard Ault's wife Elizabeth 
Loucks die at or following childbirth in 1826. Is Margaret Eamand 
his second wife? Information is lacking.

DOROTHY AULT 

(Dorothy Ault, Nicholas, Johannes) 

Dorothy Ault, one of 6 children of Nicholas Ault and Cathar- 
ine Loucks was born on date unknown on the Nicholas Ault 
Crown grant farm located on the WA of Lot 34 in Concession I in 
Osnabruck Twp. Her death date and burial site have not been lo- 
cated. This information may have been recorded in the Family 
Bible that was lost when a fire destroyed the family home. 

Dorothy Auit was less than 18 years of age when her father 
wrote his will on 19 Oct 1811. He provided for her as follows: ~ 
"To my beloved daughter Dorothy, the east half of Lot 6 in the 
12th Concession of the Twp of Mountain, and furniture as of her 
sister, together with wearing apparel and a decent wholesome diet 

90 





and a common English Education. Ordering her to labor reason- 
ably as she may be required until she becomes the age of 18 years." 
No evidence has been located indicating that she married or 
that she applied for or received a grant of Crown land as the 
daughter of an E.L. She may have died before she reached the 
age of 21. In the Land Records of Upper Canada her name is not 
included among the members of Nicholas Ault family who received 
grants of Crown land.

SAMUEL AULT 1814-1895 

CATHERINE VALENTIN LOUCKS 1824-1914 

(Samuel Ault, Nicholas N., Nicholas, Johannes) 

Samuel Ault, the first of 9 children of Nicholas N. Ault and 
Margaret Ross (Nicolos and Margreth) was born on 11 Dec 1814 in 
the Nicholas N. Ault home located on Lot 4 on the southwest cor- 
ner of York and Nelson Streets in the settlement that became 
Aultsville. According to the Williamsburg Parish Register, Liber A 
on Baptisms 1805-1821, he was baptised on 18 Dec 1814. His 
sponsors were Jacob Ross and wife and Henry Merkle. He died, 
age 81, on 28 Aug 1895 in his home, Acacia Hall, which was lo- 
cated on Lot 39 in Aultsville on the west side of Nelson St. south 
of the small country lane that was supposed to become Mill Road. 
His funeral services were conducted by the Reverend N.A. McLeod 
of St. Matthews Church in Woodlands where Samuel had been 
an Elder for many years. He was buried in Woodlands West Pres- 
byterian Cemetery in Woodlands in Stormont Co. Before this 
Cemetery was covered in 1958 by the developing Lake St. Law- 
rence, his gravestone was moved to the St. Lawrence Valley 
Union Cemetery which is located on Lots 6 and 7 in Concession I 
in Osnabruck Twp. near the village of Long Sault. The gravestone 
also contains the names of Ada, George and Frederick Herbert 
Ault. 

According to the Williamsburg Parish Register, Liber E., Sam- 
uel Ault age 31 of Osnabruck and Catherine Valentin Loucks age 

96 



21 of Williamsburg were married by License, on 19 Feb 1846 in 
the old Trinity Anglican Church in the Township of Williamsburg 
in Dundas Co. The service was conducted by the Reverend Ed- 
ward Boswell. This Church had been erected in 1789 by the Lu- 
theran Congregation that had been organized by the Reverend 
Samuel Schwerdfeger. The Church had been dedicated as the 
Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church and it was the first Protestant 
Church erected in Ontario. In 1811 it came under the control of 
the Anglican Church. It was rebuilt in 1836 and it was replaced 
by a new Church in 1902-1903. 

Catherine Valentin Loucks was the 3rd child of John William 
Loucks and Alta Moseley. Both parents were of Loyalist stock. 
Catherine was born in 1824 in Williamsburg. She was the sister of 
Mary Ann Loucks who married Samuel's younger brother Isaiah 
Richard Ault. She died, age 90, on 8 Oct 1914 in Williamsburg 
Twp. and she was buried beside her husband in Woodlands West 
Presbyterian Cemetery. 

Samuel Ault and Catherine Valentin Loucks had 8 children.

Samuel Ault was educated in the local schools in Aultsville and 
he had a very useful and liberal business education while working 
in the family store. He was a very active vigorous individual with 
a commanding physical appearance. He was age 24 in 1838 when 
he became a Lieutenant in the Second Dundas Regiment of Mili- 
tia under the command of Col. G. Markley. For a time he became 
an active participant in managing and developing the Ault business 
interests that had been started by his father Nicholas N. Ault. 
Samuel and his brothers Isaiah Richard and Simeon dealt in Lum- 
ber, Potash, Coal, Grain, Feed and General Merchandise. Samuel 
soon became involved in the affairs of Osnabruck Twp. and Stor- 
mont Co. and his younger brother Isaiah Richard assumed more 
control of the store and the Ault family business interests. One of 
Samuel's projects was the improvement and development of the 
road system for Stormont Co. He spent considerable time and 

97 



effort in planning the construction of new roads and the improve- 
ment of the existing roads. This involved him in Political affairs 
and he represented Stormont Co. on the Counties Council of the 
United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry for a period 
of 14 years. When the Counties Council met in Jan 1852 they 
elected Samuel as the Warden for the 3 Counties for the year 1852. 
He also served as a Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for almost 40 years. 
He was a school Trustee and Chairman of the Board of Education 
for 40 years. He was a Deputy Reeve of the Twp. of Osnabruck 
for several years and in 1851 he served as Reeve of the Twp. As 
his interest and experience in politics grew and expanded he be- 
came a skilled debater and a formidable opponent in the political 
arena. He chose to represent the Reform Party in the Stormont 
Co. elections of 1861. His opponent was the Hon. John Sandfield 
MacDonald whose distinguished career in politics dated back to 
the 1840's and who became Premier of what is now Ontario in 
1862-1864. Samuel Ault won this 1861 election and he became 
the representative of Stormont Co. to the Legislative Assembly of 
Canada West for a 3 year term 1861-1864. 

Samuel Ault ran for a second 3 year term in 1864 and at that 
time he supported the policies of his former opponent John Sand- 
field MacDonald. He was elected to the last Legislative Assembly 
of 1864-1867 of Canada West before Confederation became effec- 
tive in 1867. 

When the British North American Act became operative on 1 
July 1867, henceforth known as Dominion Day, it marked the be- 
ginning of a Canadian Union — a Confederation — and the people 
of Stormont Co. elected Samuel Ault as their representative to the 
first Dominion Parliament. He became the Honorable Samuel 
Ault M.P. of Stormont Co. whose term of office was from 1867 to 
1872. Members of this first term of Parliament for the Dominion 
of Canada were presented with a Confederation Medal bearing a 
bas relief of Queen Victoria on the obverse side and the following 
inscription on the reverse side: "Juventas Et Patrius Vogor Canada 
Instaurata 1867." This surrounds a sitting figure of Brittania with 
a Lion's head on her knee and before her are four maidens repre- 
senting each of the Confederating Provinces of Ontario, Quebec, 
New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The Medal was cast in Bronze 
3 inches in diameter and l A inch thick. It is presently held in safe- 
keeping by Edwin F. Ault Esq. of Weston, Ont. who kindly pro- 
vided the writer with the foregoing description of the Medal. 

Reproductions of the Confederation Medal have been made 

98 



available by the London, England firm of John Pinches who, in 
1967, transferred the original dies to Canada in time for the 1967 
Centennial. The dies are now held by the Royal Canadian Mint 
in Ottawa. 

In 1872 the Hon. Samuel Ault was the candidate of the Con- 
servative Party to represent Stormont Co. for a second five-year 
term for the Dominion Parliament that met in Ottawa. He was 
defeated by Mr. Cyril Archibald, a Liberal who served from 1872 
to 1877. 

Samuel Ault retired from politics and returned to Acacia Hall 
to manage his farm. His farm, which extended northwards along 
the west side of Nelson Street almost to the railroad tracks, needed 
his care and attention as did his Shingle Mill located by the Upper 
Mill pond. The Lower Mill pond, which had been created closer to 
the St. Lawrence river, was used for floating and sorting logs that 
could be cut into larger sizes of lumber. This was where the lum- 
ber was made into rafts that could be floated down the St. Law- 
rence to Montreal. During his childhood my father skated and 
played hockey on these ponds. 

The Samuel Ault farm was a productive working farm where 
grain was ground in their own grist mill. A large orchard produced 
apples and other fruits for the family and the Ault General Store. 
A large Berry field and family garden was located close to the 
house. A granite Potash structure was also located on the prop- 
erty. 

When the 1871 census was taken in Osnabruck Twp., the Hon. 
Samuel Ault was listed as a merchant and trader and an M.P. 
(Member of Parliament). His 8 children were all living at home in 
the village of Aultsville. 

After Samuel Ault died in 1895, Acacia Hall was sold to the 
Lane Family in 1896. His widow Catherine Valentin Loucks and 
their daughters Ada and Mary moved to the village of Morrisburg 
which was located on the north shore of the St. Lawrence river in 
Williamsburg Twp. Catherine Valentin Loucks lived the last 18 
years of her life in Morrisburg under the care of her daughters.

CHRISTIANNE MARGARET AULT 1817-1825 

(Christianne Margaret Ault, Nicholas N., Nicholas, Johannes) 

Christianne Margaret Ault, the second of 9 children of Nicho- 
las N. Ault and Margaret Ross was born on 11 Mar 1817 in the 



99 



Nicholas N. Ault home in the settlement that became Aultsvilie. 
She died on 28 Jan 1825 in her parents' home and she was buried 
in Woodlands East Presbyterian and Anglican Cemetery in Wood- 
lands in Osnabruck Twp. The Williamsburg Parish Register, Liber 
A on Baptisms for 1805-1821, lists her parents as Nicolos Ault and 
Margreth. She was listed as Christianne Margaret, baptised 23 Mar 
1817 and her sponsors were John Ault and wife and Elizabeth 
Ross. 

The Register of Matilda, Williamsburg and Osnabruck, Liber B 
on Burials, records the following: "1825 Jan 30, Christina, daugh- 
ter to Nicolos Ault and Margreth Ross, his wife, both of Osna- 
bruck, died Jan 28 1825 about age 14." 

When Lake St. Lawrence was created in 1958 it covered East 
Woodlands Cemetery but before this happened selected gravestones 
from Woodlands and other Cemeteries were moved to the Crysler 
Farm Battlefield Park in Williamsburg Twp. About 300 grave- 
stones were moved and imbedded in the walls of the Pioneer Mem- 
orial that was located near the entrance to Upper Canada Village. 
Four Ault gravestones have been implanted in the north wall of 
the Memorial, and Christianne Margaret Ault's is inscribed: — 
"Christian M. Ault, age 7 years, 10 months, 17 days." There is 
no date on this gravestone but the carver's name, W. Bell, and C.W. 
are carved on the base of the gravestone. This indicates that it was 
inscribed between 1841-1867 when Upper Canada was known as 
Canada West.

Minerva Ann Ault, the third of 9 children of Nicholas N. Ault 
and Margaret Ross was born on 3 July 1820 in the Nicholas N. 
Ault home in Charlesville, Osnabruck Twp. The Williamsburg Par- 
ish Register, Liber A on Baptisms 1805-1821, records her baptism 
on 16 July 1820. The sponsors were Mickle Ross and Catarina 
Ross. She died, age 48, on 3 July 1868 in her residence located on 
Post Road in Cornwall Twp. Her burial site has not been located. 
Minerva Ann Ault and George Dixon were married on 26 July 
1838 in Charlesville. 

George Dixon — no information. 

The Dixons lived in Chicago after their marriage. It is not 
known when they returned to Cornwall Twp.

ISAIAH RICHARD AULT 1824-1889 

MARY ANN LOUCKS 1837-1915 

(Isaiah Richard Ault, Nicholas N., Nicholas, Johannes) 

Isaiah Richard Ault, the fourth of 9 children of Nicholas N. 
Ault and (Margreth) Margaret Ross, was born on 4 Apr 1824 in 
the Nicholas N. Ault home in Charlesville. He was baptised on 
2 May 1824 and his sponsors were Richard Louks and his wife 
and Richard Ault. He died, age 65, on 5 Jan 1889 at his home 
that was located on the N.E. corner of Mill and York Streets in 
Aultsville. He was buried in Woodlands West Presbyterian Ceme- 
tery and before this Cemetery was covered in 1958 by the Devel- 
oping Lake St. Lawrence his gravestone was moved to the St. Law- 
rence Valley Union Cemetery located on Lots 6 and 7 in Conces- 
sion 1 in Osnabruck Twp. near the village of Long Sault. 

Isaiah Richard Ault and Mary Ann Loucks were married, by 
license, in Williamsburg on 23 June 1857. 

Mary Ann Loucks of Williamsburg, the 6th child of John Wil- 
liam Loucks and Alta Mosely was born in 1837 in Williamsburg. 
She was the sister of Catherine Valentine Loucks who married 
Isaiah's older brother Samuel. She died, age 79, on 26 Feb 1915 
in the home of her daughter Ida Mary Ault who lived in Toronto. 
She was buried beside her husband in Woodlands West Presbyter- 
ian Cemetery. 

Isaiah Richard Ault and Mary Ann Loucks had 5 children.

Isaiah Richard Ault was educated in the local schools and at 
the age of 17 he went to Cornwall to learn the mercantile trade 
in the store of William Mattice. A few years later he returned to 
Charlesville and joined his brothers Samuel and Simeon in operat- 
ing a general store and in developing other business enterprises 
that had been started by their father Nicholas N. Ault. Isaiah ap- 
peared to be the most progressive and enterprising member of the 
Ault family for he soon assumed full control of the business ven- 
tures including the I.R. Ault & Sons General Store in Charlesville 
and in Lunenburg. The Aults bought and sold land, they dealt in 
Lumber, Potash, Coal, Grain, Feeds, Groceries and other general

merchandise. They owned two sawmills and floated numerous 
rafts of lumber down the St. Lawrence river to Montreal. At one 
time their volume of trade with Montreal merchants made it neces- 
sary for Simeon Ault to spend considerable time in Montreal on 
behalf of the Ault business interests. They undoubtedly dispensed 
political, economic and social information when, on 4 Jan 1854, 
the Post Office was located in their General Store situated on Lot 
9 on the northwest corner of York and Nelson Streets. On 4 Jan 
1855 Isaiah Richard Ault was appointed Postmaster and he held 
that office until 12 Apr 1888. 

Isaiah Richard Ault was very active in local community affairs 
and he was allegedly responsible for uniting and controlling the 
strong conservative families in the area. He was elected Deputy 
Reeve for Osnabruck Twp. in 1877 and in 1878. In 1879 he was 
elected Reeve of Osnabruck Twp. He was a member of the Coun- 
ties Council of Glengarry, Stormont and Dundas for 15 years and 
at one time he was Chairman of their Finance Committee. He was 
a Justice of the Peace and in 1881 the County Council elected him 
a Warden. A more extensive and descriptive biographical note and 
photograph of Isaiah Richard Ault may be found in Belden and in 
Harkness. 

Isaiah Richard Ault's will was drawn and witnessed by Austin 
Fetterly and Edwin D. Ault on 24 Dec 1888. In 1889 it was pre- 
sented for probate in Her Majesty's Surrogate Court for the United 
Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. Isaiah named his 
wife Mary Ann Loucks and his sons Arthur William and Charles 
Sidney as the executors and administrators of his estate. His insur- 
ance was left to provide for his wife and children and, after pay- 
ment of his debts, the residue of the estate was left to his sons Ar- 
thur William and Charles Sidney. Isaiah's brother Samuel was 
apparently indebted to him for Isaiah held a deed to Samuel's 
farm that had been executed by Samuel and Catharine Valentine 
Loucks on 29 Aug 1881. This compiler has not been able to de- 
termine how the foregoing was settled or what disposal was made 
of 50 acres of land located in the Eastern Commons in Concession 
VI in Williamsburg that Isaiah Richard has patented in 1868. 

The funeral for Isaiah Richard Ault was held in Aultsville and 
the services were conducted by the Reverend J.J. Cameron of 
Woodlands. His extensive obituary stated that he was a man of 
sterling qualities, unimpeachable integrity and great business ca- 
pacity — .— .— he occupied a very high place in the respect and es- 
teem of the people — .— .—

(Delilah Catharine Ault, Nicholas N., Nicholas, Johannes) 

Delilah Catharine Ault of Osnabruck, the fifth of 9 children of 
Nicholas N. Ault and Margaret Ross was born on 28 Jan 1826 in 
the Nicholas N. Ault home in Charlesville. According to the Wil- 
liamsburg Parish Register, Liber C 1822-1832, she was baptised on 
19 Feb 1826 and her sponsors were John Weart and his wife Sally 
Hickey. She died on 19 Aug 1872 and her burial site has not been 
located. 

According to the Williamsburg Parish Register, Liber E on Mar- 
riages, George N. Archibald of Osnabruck and Delilah C. Ault of 
the same place were married, after banns, on 2 Nov 1848 in Aults- 
ville. 

George Newell Archibald of Osnabruck, the son of Thane 
Archibald, was born in Stormont County. He died in May -June 
1906 and his burial site has not been located. 

Delilah Catharine Ault and George Newell Archibald had 4 
children.

In 1856 Matthew, Sidney and Edward Archibald of Stormont 
County went to a small settlement in Rice County, Minnesota. 
They started a small flour milling business in the settlement and in 
June 1857 George Newell Archibald, his wife Delilah and his bro- 
ther J.S. Archibald went to Minn, to join in the family enterprise. 
A few years earlier, a Mr. Matteson had laid out plans for a town 
to be developed along the banks of the Canon river. The Archi- 
balds bought the plans. They dammed the river and erected grist 
mills and lumber mills and sawmills. They named the settlement 
Dundas and they became the developers and owners of the Dundas 
Flour Milling Co. They also became substantial benefactors of the 
community. 

George Newell Archibald belonged to All Saints Episcopal 
Church in Nearby Northfield and he served on its first vestry in 
1858. 

After Delilah Catharine Ault died, age 46, in 1872, George 
and the family moved, possibly to Illinois, and they have been lost

SIMEON NICHOLAS AULT 1828-1905 
MARY AGNES BAKER 1840-1895 

(Simeon Nicholas Ault, Nicholas N., Nicholas, Johannes) 

Simeon Nicholas Ault, the sixth of 9 children of Nicholas N. 
Ault and Margaret Ross, was born on 24 July 1828 in the Nicholas 
N. Ault home in Charlesville. He died, age 77, on 19 May 1905 in 
Acton, Ont. and he was buried in Woodlands West Presbyterian 
Cemetery. His gravestone was removed to the St. Lawrence Val- 
ley Union Cemetery near Long Sault in Stormont Co. before the 
Cemetery was covered by the developing Lake St. Lawrence in 
1958. 

Simeon Nicholas Ault and Mary Agnes Baker were married in 
Aultsville on 5 Oct 1865 by the Reverend Richard Garrett. 

Mary Agnes Baker, the daughter of William Hiram Baker and 
Mary Stuart was born on 24 Nov 1840 in Osnabruck Twp. She 
died on 1 Oct 1895, age 55, in Montreal and she was buried next 
to her husband. Her gravestone was also moved to the St. Law- 
rence Valley Union Cemetery. 

Simeon Nicholas Ault and Mary Agnes Baker had 1 child. 

5 N 62 Percy Baker Ault, b 8 May 1867, d 27 July 1898 

Simeon Nicholas Ault was a part-time farmer and business man 
who farmed the WV2 of Lot 34 in Concession I in Osnabruck Twp. 
This was the Crown grant farm that his grandfather Nicholas Ault 
had received via his Ticket of Location on 24 Nov 1785 and had 
patented the property on 12 Mar 1797. Simeon was also a mem- 

104 



ber of the firm of I.R. Ault & Co. whose general stores were lo- 
cated in Aultsville and Lunenburg. Simeon spent considerable 
time in Montreal taking care of the Ault lumber business and other 
interests. 

After their marriage in 1865, Simeon and Mary Agnes lived in 
the Nicholas N. Ault home and when Nicholas N. died in 1871 
Simeon inherited the home and the property. 

On 3 Sept 1895 Charles Sidney Ault, a nephew of Simeon, 
married Ella M.V. Baker, who was the younger sister of Mary 
Agnes, and arrangements were made for the newlyweds to move in 
with Simeon and Mary Agnes. Although the results of this move 
were not very satisfactory, Simeon continued to live in the house 
after his wife Mary Agnes died at the age of 55 on 1 Oct 1895. 
Simeon lost interest in the business after his son Percy died at the 
age of 31 on 27 July 1898. He sold his share in the business and 
the farm to his nephew Charles Sidney Ault. Charles Sidney also 
bought the Nicholas N. Ault home from Simeon. Simeon then 
moved to Acton, Ont. to be with his nephew Dr. Edwin D'Arcy 
Ault. He died in Acton in 1905 and at the time of his death he 
was the only surviving member of the firm of I.R. Ault & Co. He 
was remembered in Aultsville as being active in community affairs, 
as a staunch Presbyterian and as a conservative in politics and in 
business affairs. 

Some of the preceding information was obtained from the 
Simeon Ault Family Bible that was inherited by Charles Sidney 
Ault and maintained by his wife Flora Mac Arthur Ault. This Bible 
is now under the care of Edwin F. Ault Esq. of Weston, Ont.

JACOB SIDNEY AULT 1831-1854

Jacob Sidney Ault, the seventh of 9 children of Nicholas N.

Ault home in Charlesville. He died, age 22, on 18 Mar 1854 in 
West Henrietta, N.Y. and he was buried in East Woodlands Ceme- 
tery in Stormont Co. Jacob Sidney Ault never married. 

When Lake St. Lawrence was created in 1958, it covered the 
Cemetery at Woodlands. Before this occurred, selected gravestones 
from Woodlands and other cemeteries were moved to Crysler 
Farm Battlefield Park where they were imbedded in the walls of 
the Pioneer Memorial that was built in the Park near the entrance 



105 






to Upper Canada Village located in Dundas Co., Ont. The north 
wall contains 4 Ault gravestones and one is inscribed as follows:— 
"Jacob Sidney Ault, died Mar 18 1854, age 22 years, 9 months, 6 
days." This gravestone was placed next to the gravestones of his 
parents.

JAMES IRA AULT 1834- 

(James Ira Ault, Nicholas N., Nicholas, Johannes) 

James Ira Ault, the eighth of 9 children of Nicholas N. Ault 
and Margaret Ross, was born on 16 Mar 1834 in his parents' home 
in Charlesville/Aultsville. His death date and burial site have not 
been located. He never married. In 1859 when he was age 25, 
James Ira Ault joined his borther George Edgar Ault when they 
left Aultsville and went to Dundas in Bridgewater Township in 
Minnesota. Their sister Catharine Delilah Ault had married George 
Newell Archibald of Stormont County and the Archibalds had 
moved to Dundas. George Archibald and his brother J.S. Archi- 
bald were developing the townsite that was to become Dundas in 
Rice County, Minnesota and it seems evident that the Aults* move 
to Dundas was influenced by their sister and the Archibalds. In 
1859-1860 James Ira Ault and his brother George Edgar Ault built 
what was to become the largest and best General Merchandise 
Store in the area. It was a successful venture but James Ira left the 
business after a few years for parts unknown. He returned and 
when the 1859 census was taken in Bridgewater Twp. he was listed 
as a bookkeeper in the mills who lived as a boarder in the Converse 
household. A few years after the census was taken he left Dundas 
and has been lost to follow-up.

GEORGE EDGAR AULT 1838-1886 

MRS. SOUTHWORTH 

(George Edgar Ault, Nicholas N., Nicholas, Johannes) 

George Edgar Ault, the ninth of 9 children of Nicholas N. Ault 
and Margaret Ross, was born on 19 Mar 1838 in the CharlesvUle/ 
Aultsville home of Nicholas N. Ault. He died, age 48, on 26 May 
1886 in Dundas, Minn, and his burial site has not been located. 

George Edgar Ault and Mrs. Southworth were married in 
1883. No information is available on Mrs. Southworth. There 



106 



were no children. 

George Edgar Ault began his education at the Potsdam Acad- 
emy in Potsdam, N.Y. and completed it at Fort Edward, N.Y. He 
was age 21 when, in 1859, he and his brother Ira, age 25, left 
Aultsville and went to Dundas, Minn. This move was undoubtedly 
a response to the urging of their sister Delilah and her husband

MARY LOUISA AULT 1866-1962 

(Mary Louisa Ault, Samuel, Nicholas N., Nicholas, Johannes) 

Mary Louisa Ault, the eighth of 8 children of Samuel Ault and 
Catherine Valentin Loucks was born on 14 Nov 1866 in the Sam- 
uel Ault home in Aultsville. She died, age 96, on 21 Mar 1962 in 
Belleville, Ont. and she was buried in the Belleville Cemetery. 

Mary Louisa Ault, who never married, was always affection- 
ately known as Aunt Mary. She lived in the Samuel Ault home, 
Acacia Hall, in Aultsville until after the death of her father in 
1895. She was educated in the local schools and at the Havergal 
Finishing School in Toronto. She was briefly employed as a pri- 
vate nurse in Chicago but when her mother became ill she returned 
to Aultsville. After the Samuel Ault home was sold ca 1895 Mary 
Louisa, her sister Ada, and her mother Catherine, moved to Mor- 
risburg where Catherine died in 1914. This compiler and his wife 
visited Aunt Mary and Aunt Ada in 1934 and found that Ada was 
confined to bed and Mary was taking care of her. They were still 
living in Morrisburg when Ada died in 1939. After Ada's death 
Mary Louisa moved to Belleville so she could be near her widowed 
sister Catherine Delilah Ault Gibson. 

■ 

Mary Louisa Ault kept most of the family records of Births, 
Marriages and Deaths among the Aults of Stormont County in the 
Cottage Bible and Family Expositor that was initially owned by 
her grandfather Nicholas N. Ault. Before she died, Mary Louisa 
specifically stated that this Bible was to be entrusted to the care 
of Percy Edwin Ault. His son Edwin F. Ault Esq. of Weston, Ont. 
has the Bible under his care. 

Another Ault Family Bible — The Illustrated Polyglot Family 
Bible — is also owned by Edwin F. Ault, Esq. This Bible appears 
to have been passed from Samuel to Simeon to Charles Sidney 
Ault. Mrs. Charles Sidney Ault (Flora Mac Arthur Ault) kept rec- 
ords in this Bible for several years. 

These two Bibles are invaluable sources, and at times the only 
sources, on the Aults and their descendants. They contain Birth, 
Baptism, Marriage and Death notices and obituaries cut out of 
local and regional papers. Legible and illegible information and 
marginal notes written in ink by different individuals is mixed in 
notices of family interest. Some of the information dating back 
to the Loyalist soldier Nicholas Ault has been copied from records 
that were kept before the Bibles were published in 1854 and 1869. 

120 












Between 1784 and 1869 this kind of information was not syste- 
matically recorded by Township, County or Provincial authorities. 
When the Vital Statistics Act of 1869 was passed, the recording of 
Births, Marriages and Deaths began rather slowly for there was 
considerable lack of compliance. As a result researchers involved 
in obtaining Genealogical information prior to 1869, and in some 
instances after 1869, have to depend upon family papers, Bible 
and Church records and gravestone inscriptions.

Arthur William Ault was educated in the Aultsville Schools 
and as a young man he worked in the Ault General Store in Aults- 
ville where he learned merchandising and business practices under 
the watchful eye and tutelage of his father Isaiah Richard. When 
his father died in 1889 Arthur William, age 29, Charles Sidney, age 
27, and the widow Mary Ann Loucks, age 52, were named Execu- 
tors of the Isaiah Richard Ault Estate. When Arthur William mar- 
ried in 1891 he and his wife lived in the Isaiah Richard Ault home 
and when his younger brother Charles Sidney married in 1895 he 
and his bride decided to live across the street in the Nicholas N. 
Ault home. Arthur William and Charles Sidney shared in the man- 
agement of the Ault General Store that was located on the north- 
west corner of York and Nelson Sts. and in the other Ault business 
ventures in lumber, coal, grain, feeds, brickyards and a store in 
Lunenburg. They also found it necessary to have a representative 
in Montreal. A younger brother, Harold Lucius, had gone west 
and another brother, Alfred Ernest, age 20, was interested in an 
adventurous military career. 

While he was living in Aultsville Arthur had a great interest in 
local community affairs and he was elected Reeve of the Twp. of 
Onasbruck. He was also elected to represent Osnabruck when the 
Counties Council met on 24 Oct 1892 in Morrisburg. 

Around 1905 Arthur William sold his interest in the Ault Gen- 
eral Store and other business ventures to his brother Charles Sid- 
ney Ault and after the birth of his son John Gerald in 1906 the 
Aults moved to Ottawa. He established a successful wholesale 
boot and shoe business in Ottawa and when he died he left this 
to his son Lloyd in 1916, 

Arthur William Ault was a kind gregarious individual who soon 
found himself involved in innumerable philanthropic and civic 
causes in Ottawa. He became a Director of several organizations 
including the Protestant Hospital. He was a Counselor for the 
Board of Trade and on two occasions he was elected an Alderman 
by a large popular majority vote. This made him a member of the 
City Council. He was an Elder in the Bank Street and the Chal- 
mers Presbyterian Church over a period of 14 years. 

An extensive and eloquent obituary was published in several 
newspapers after his death. His funeral service, conducted by the 
Reverend N. McLaren and his assistants, with Masonic Rites, was 
held in Aultsville. He was buried in Farran's Point Cemetery and 
before this Cemetery was inundated in 1958 the remains were 
transferred to the St. Lawrence Valley Union Cemetery near the 
village of Long Sault in Stormont Co.

Charles Sidney Ault spent his lifetime in Aultsville. He was 
educated in the Aultsville schools and as a young man he lived 
with his parents in the Isaiah Ault home which was located on Lot 

123 



8 (Belden page 22) on the north side of York St. at the corner of 
Mill St. The Ault General Store was located next door on the 
northwest corner of Nelson St. and York St. Charles Sidney began 
working in the store at an early age and he soon took an active in- 
terest in all of the Ault business ventures in lumber, coal, grain, 
feed and merchandising. When his father Isaiah died in 1889, 
Charles age 27, Arthur William age 29 and the widow Mary Ann 
Loucks were named as executors of the Isaiah Richard Ault estate. 
During the next 10 years Charles assumed an increasing responsi- 
bility in the management of the Ault store and of the other busi- 
nesses. He continued to manage the Ault enterprises until the 
Lane family, who had bought the Samuel Ault home and farm, 
bought the store and some of the Ault business ventures about 
1930. 

When Charles Sidney and Ella M.V. Baker were married on 
3 Sept 1895, Charles was living in his parents' home which was 
also occupied by his brother Arthur William, his wife Nellie Ellen 
MacPherson and Mary Ann Loucks. Charles and Ella were invited 
to move across the street into the spacious Nicholas N. Ault house 
which was then occupied by his uncle Simeon who had married 
Ella's sister, Mary Agnes Baker, 30 years ago. Unfortunately, 
Mary Agnes died about a month after this living arrangement was 
started. Simeon, the widower, continued to live in the home for 
a few years but when Charles bought out Simeon's interest in the 
home and in the Ault business ventures, Simeon decided to move 
to Acton, Ont. where he lived with his nephew Dr. Edwin D'Arcy 
Ault. 

Ella M.V. Baker died in 1903 and Charles Sidney Ault married 
Flora Minerva Mac Arthur in 1908. They took up residence in the 
Nicholas N. Ault home and their two children Douglas and William 
were raised in this spacious home and both of them were educated 
in the Aultsville schools. Charles died in this Ault home in 1935 
and his widow Flora was living in this red brick house when the 
Ontario Hydro Commission took over all of the Aultsville prop- 
erty to make way for the Power Dam and the Seaway Project at 
Cornwall. By that time, in the 1950's, five generations of Aults 
had been born and raised in the Nicholas N. Ault home.

was promoted to Troop Sergeant in the field in the A squadron of 
the Canadian Mounted Rifles. He participated in 44 engagements 
during the war and received a 5 barred war medal for his services. 
His obituary, published in a Montreal paper, follows — "Alfred E. 
Ault, of Aultsville, who died last night at the Royal Victoria Hos- 
pital in this city was the youngest son of the late I.R. Ault and a 
member of the well known firm of general merchants, Ault Bros. 
Ltd. of Aultsville. Typhoid fever and other intestinal troubles

were the cause of death. The deceased, who was only 38 years 
of age, was a member of several fraternal orders and was widely 
known. He leaves a wife and 3 children. The body will be sent 
to Aultsville and the funeral will take place on Saturday." A

where Percy died in 1898. This was less than 4 years after their 
marriage. It is quite likely that Janette returned to Maryland.

William Bowen Ault was educated in Enterprise, Or. and the 
U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. where he graduated in 
1922. He attained the rank of Commander during World War II 
and served as Air Group Commander aboard the U.S.S. Lexington 
whose task force planes were under the command of Admiral 
Aubrey W. Fitch. During the Battle of the Coral Sea, 3 May-8 
May 1942, an air group led by Commander Ault sank the Japanese 
light carrier Soho on 7 May 1942. On 8 May 1942 Commander 
Ault led an air attack that inflicted major damage on two Japanese 
carriers. He did not return from this mission.

CONRAD AULT 1750- 

(Conrad Ault, Johannes) 

Conrad Ault, the third of 9 children of the Loyalist soldier 
Johannes Ault and his first wife Hannah Henkel, was born in Am- 
sterdam on 9 May 1750. He was age 3 when he was brought to 
British Colonial America in 1753 by his parents. Conrad spent his 
growing years on his father's tenant farm on the Kingsborough 
Patent. He was age 27 in 1777 when he became a Loyalist and 
went to Montreal with his brothers Nicholas and John to join Lt. 
Col. Sir John Johnson's K.R.R.N.Y. He was in Sir John's Com- 
pany in the 1st Battalion when he was mustered out in Montreal 
on 24 Dec 1783. He was with the family on their trip up the 
St. Lawrence in 1784. He may have died of war injuries or illness 
for his name disappeared from the lists of Loyalists who settled in 
the St. Lawrence valley.

JOHN AULT AND HIS DESCENDANTS 

2 J 5 

JOHN AULT 1751-1833 
MARGARET BOUCK ca 1764-1813 

(John Ault, Johannes) 

John Ault, the Loyalist soldier of Williamsburg and Cornwall 
Twps. was the 4th of 9 children of Johannes Ault and .his first wife 
Hannah Henkel. He was born on 11 April 1751 in Amsterdam in 
the Netherlands and he was age 2 when his parents brought him to 
Colonial America in 1753. He died, age 82, on 20 Mar 1833 on 
his farm in Cornwall Twp., Stormont Co., in the St. Lawrence 
river valley in Upper Canada. He was buried in the Mille Roches 
United Church Cemetery that was located on the south end of 
Lot 26 in Concession I, 3rd R., in old Mille Roches in Cornwall 
Twp. When the Cornwall canal was built in 1834-1842 part of the 
Cemetery was located between the canal and the St. Lawrence 
river. Access to this part of the Cemetery and the strip of land be- 
tween the canal and the river was provided by the Mille Roches 
Tunnel that was built under the canal. In 1888-1891 the depth of 
the canal was increased to 14 feet and the tunnel was abolished. 
Access to the Cemetery was cut off and the Cemetery was aban- 
doned. 71 This portion of the Cemetery could not be identified 
by Helene B. Ault in 1946 and in 1958 it was covered by the 
developing Lake St. Lawrence. 

John Ault and Margaret Bouck were married ca 1788 in Wil- 
liamsburg Twp. 

Margaret Bouck, the daughter of the Loyalist soldier John 
Frederick Bouck Jr. and Catharina Ingoldt, was born ca 1764 
in the Schoharie Valley in Albany County in the British Colon- 
ial Province of New York. She was baptised Margareth Bouck 
on 2 Oct 1764 in St. Pauls Evangelical Lutheran Church in Scho- 
harie and her sponsors were Anthony Wiedmer and Margaret In- 
goldt. 72 Margaret was the sister of John Bouck who married 
Sophia Wissell. In the Register of Matilda Williamsburg and 
Osnabruck, Liber A on Burials, page 186 contains the following 
entry: — "Buried 20 Mar 1813, Margaret Bouck Alt, consort to 
John Alt of Williamsburg, died 18 Mar 1813 age 49 years"J3 

John Ault and Margaret Bouck had 4 children whose birth, 
baptism dates were recorded in the Williamsburg Parish Register 
1790-1886.

3 J 9 Margaret Ault, b 1 Apr 1805, d 1843 

In 1753 infant John Ault was age 2, his brothers Nicholas age 
8, Frederick age 4, Conrad age 3, and David age 1 when the Ault 
family came to British Colonial America. This family was living 
proof that some families could survive a 6-8 weeks crossing of the 
Atlantic on ships whose standards of sanitation were sometimes 
deplorable, whose passengers were often plagued by dysentery 
and who sometimes lacked adequate food supplies. 

The Ault family allegedly lived in the Philadelphia area for 8 
years, 1753-1761, before they moved to the Mohawk river valley 
where their father Johannes became a tenant farmer on the Kings- 
borough Patent of Sir William Johnson. John grew up on this 
farm in Tryon County during the unsettled years leading up to the 
Revolutionary War. He probably became a member of the John- 
son's militia. In 1777, at the age of 26, he decided to join the 
Loyalist cause and he left the Mohawk valley with his brothers 
Nicholas and Conrad who were going to Montreal to join Lt. Col. 
Sir John Johnson's K.R.R.N.Y. When his father Johannes sub- 
mitted testimony on 16 Feb 1788 to a Loyalist Commission in 
Montreal, he stated that he had sent 3 sons to the British army in 
1777. John was one of these sons. 

It appears that John Ault's service in Johnson's 1st Battalion 
of the K.R.R.N.Y. was terminated by illness or war injuries before 
the 1st Battalion was disbanded in Montreal on 24 Dec 1783, for 
the name John Ault, age 32, does not appear on the Mustering Out 
Roll of that date. His father Johannes and his brother Conrad 
were listed as soldiers in the same Company. This oversight was 
corrected when the Centennial Volume was published in 1885. 
John Ault was then listed in Appendix B as a soldier in the original 
roll of the K.R.R.N.Y.74 

John Ault probably spent the winter of 1783-1784 in or near 
Montreal or the refugee camps around Sorel. I have not been able 
to determine if he was with the family or in a hospital. However, 
it appears that he was with the family when they all went up the 
St. Lawrence river to Iroquois. On 17 Dec 1787 the Honorable 
John Collins issued a Ticket of Location to Owen Cameron and 
John Ault for 200 acres of Crown land to each on Lot 3 and 4 in 
Concession VIII in the Twp. of Cornwall. They promptly began 
improving their land by erecting houses, barns and outbuildings. 
They were later informed by Mr. Chewett, the acting surveyor for 






176 




the Eastern District, that the name Scott appeared on their Lot on 
the survey map. On 5 Apr 1791 Cameron and Ault petitioned the 
Land Board to clarify their situation for they felt that Scott's 
name had been inserted in the survey map with fraudulent intent 
and that they were the legal owners of the land. Their petiton 
was granted and Ault and Cameron were declared the legal owners 
of Lot 3 on 10 June 1791.75,76 John Ault subsequently sold this 
farm. 

In addition to the foregoing grant of Crown land for his serv- 
ices as a soldier in the K.R.R.N.Y., John Ault was eligible to Peti- 
tion for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land because he was the son 
of the Loyalist soldier Johannes Ault. I have not located his Peti- 
tion but I am presuming that the 200 acres of Lot A in Concession 
VII in Cornwall Twp. that he patented on 3 Jan 1803 was received 
in response to his Petition. This property was located on the 
north side of the River aux Raisins. An abstract of the Title to 
this Lot reveals that John Ault sold all 200 acres of the Lot to 
Donald McDonell on 5 July 1804 as recorded 6 July 1804, #158, 
Sheet 14/Liber A, Land Records of Stormont County.?? 

As the daughter of Frederick Bouck Jr. the Loyalist soldier of 
the K.R.R.N.Y., Margaret Bouck was eligible to Petition for a 
grant of 200 acres of Crown land when she married or became age 
21. Her Petition was approved and on 17 Mar 1804 she received 
her O.C. for 200 acres of Crown land.?8 In that same year she 
patented all 200 acres of Lot 8 in Concession XI in Mountain 
Twp.™ 

John Ault seems to have spent some time in Williamsburg 
Twp. for he was listed as being of Williamsburg Twp. when he and 
Margaret Bouck were married ca 1788. Their 1st child Nicholas 
John was born in Williamsburg Twp. on 17 Dec 1789 according 
to the Williamsburg Parish Register 1790-1886.80 John, Margaret 
and Nicholas John moved from Williamsburg Twp. to Cornwall 
Twp. between 1790 and 1793 for their second child, Maria, was 
born on 4 June 1793 on their farm on Lot 3 in Concession VIII in 
Cornwall Twp. The Williamsburg Parish Register lists John Ault 
as being from Cornwall Twp. when Maria, Simon J. and Margaret 
were born. 

It seems quite possible that the John Ault farm on Lot 3 in 
Concession VIII in Cornwall Twp. seemed a little remote from the 
settlement of Cornwall for John sold this farm and bought 138 
acres in the southern portions of Lot 18, 19 and 20 in Concession 
IV in Cornwall Twp. This land was closer to Cornwall and the 

177 







developing settlements along the St. Lawrence river. The John 
Aults spent the rest of their lives on this farm and it was inherited 
by their son Nicholas John Ault. 

John Ault also owned 100 acres in the WA of Lot 30 in Con- 
cession II, 5th R., in Cornwall Twp. This was inherited by his 
son Nicholas John Ault (1789-1857) and by his grandson Simon 
William Ault. 

John Ault seems to have established the Aults of Cornwall 
Twp. on a solid base during his 19 years of residence in the Twp, 
between 1793-1813. His son Nicholas John had 8 children and 
some of these children could continue the family line.

(Nicholas John Ault, John, Johannes) 

Nicholas John Ault of Williamsburg and Cornwall Twps. was 
the first of 4 children of the Loyalist soldier John Ault and Mar- 
garet Bouck. He was born on 17 Dec 1780 in Williamsburg Twp. 
He died, age 67, on 22 May 1857 on his farm located on the WA 
of Lot 30 in Concession II, 5th R., in Cornwall Twp. He may have 
been buried on his farm or in the old Wesleyan Methodist/United 
Churchyard Cemetery that was located in the southern portion of 
Lot 31 in Concession I, 4th R., in Moulinette. This entire area was 
inundated when Lake St. Lawrence was created in 1958. 

I Nicholas John Ault and Addison were married on 

date unknown. 

Addison — no information. 



Nicholas John Ault and Addison had 1 child.

Typescript. 

II Nicholas John Ault and Catherine (Catarina) Hickey, both 
from the Twp. of Williamsburg, were married on 10 Aug 1814 in 
Williamsburg Twp. according to the Williamsburg Register, Liber B

Hickey and Margaret Casselman, was born on 2 June 1793 in Wil- 
liamsburg Twp. She died, age 45, on 22 Jan 1835 on the Nicholas 
John Ault farm located on the WA of Lot 30 in Concession II, 5th 
R., in Cornwall Twp. She may have been buried on the farm or in 
the old Wesley an Methodist /United Churchyard Cemetery in Mou- 
linette.

III According to the Marriage Register of the Eastern District, 
Nicholas John Ault and Rebecca Campbell were married on 18 
May 1841 in Cornwall. Their witnesses were John Hickey and 
John W. Bush. 

Rebecca Campbell — no information except to note that the 
1851 Census for Cornwall Twp. listed her as a widow from Corn- 
wall, age 52, born in Canada, a Methodist and the wife of John 
Ault. 

Nicholas John Ault and Rebecca Campbell had children. 

Nicholas John Ault spent the early part of his life in Canada in 
Williamsburg Twp. where he met and married an Addison. When 
his son Levi Addison Ault was born on 30 Oct 1812, Nicholas 
John Ault was age 23 and he was serving as a private in Capt. 
George Merkley's Flank Company in the First Regiment of the 
Dundas Militia. He was in active service from 7 July 1812 to 7 
Jan 1813 during the War of 1812-1814. This was not a good time 
for keeping family records among the pioneer settlers. It is quite 
possible that the mother and child died during childbirth but there 
are no known records to support this supposition. 

As the son of John Ault the Loyalist soldier, Nicholas John 
Ault was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land 
when he became age 21. His Petition was approved and it appears 
that he received 200 acres of Lot 30 in Concession II, 5th N., in 
Cornwall Twp. 

For his services in the War of 1812, Nicholas John received a 
grant of 100 acres of Crown land in the EV2 of Lot 4 in Concession 

179 



V in the Twp. of Madoc. He was certified for the foregoing grant, 
His Majesties Bounty, on 20 Feb 1816 by Lt. Col. W. Thomas 
Fraser of the Dundas Militia. His O.C. for the foregoing grant was 
issued on 29 Jan 1816. 

Catherine Hickey, as the daughter of the Loyalist soldier John 
Hickey, was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown 
land when she became age 21 or married. Her father had been a 
private in the K.R.R.N.Y. and he was a pioneer settler who had 
drawn the E 1 ^ of Lot 3 in Concession 1 in Williamsburg Twp. He 
patented this property in 1803. According to the Upper Canada 
Land Petitions, Microfilm Reel 1610, her Petition read as follows: 

"To His Excellency Francis Gore Esq. Lieutenant Governor 
of the Province of Upper Canada, in Council: 
The Petition of Catherine Hickey of Williamsburg 
Humbly Sheweth 

That your Petitioner is the daughter of John Hickey, U.L. of 
Williamsburg Twp. and has attained the age of twenty one 
years, and is married to Nicholas John Ault, and has taken 
the Oath of Allegiance as required by law and has never re- 
ceived any land or order for land from the Crown. Where- 
fore your Petitioner prays that your Excellency will be 
pleased to grant her 200 acres of Crown land and permit 
John Crysler of Williamsburg to locate the same and take out 
the Deed when completed. 

and your Petitioner will ever pray 
Sworn to by John Crysler J. P. 
on 4 Jan 1816 Catherine Hickey Ault" 

One of the affidavits that accompanied the Petition read as fol- 
lows: ~ "Certified for His Majesties Bounty on Feb 20 1816 by 
Thos Fraser Lt. Col. D.M. in reference to Order in Council of 28 
Jan 1816." 

The following notes were made on the Petition: — "The Peti- 
tion of Catherine Ault D.U.E.L. (Daughter of United Empire Loy- 
alist) for land as an E.L. was received this 8th Mar 1816 from J. 
Craysler, I. Imoyle. 19 Apr 1816. Saalines, G.L. Went to E 130, 
Page 1, 23 Apr 1816. Enter in Land Book 1 page 337". 

It seems likely that the Aults sold or traded their Madoc, Cart- 
wright and other properties when they moved from Williamsburg 
Twp. to Cornwall Twp. The move appears to have been made be- 
tween Nov 1815 when their first child John William was born in 
Williamsburg Twp. and Dec 1817 when Simon William was born in

Cornwall Twp. 

Nicholas John Ault inherited, from his father John Ault, the 
100 acre farm that was located on the WA of Lot 30 in Concession 
II, 5th R., in Cornwall Twp. This farm was bordered on the east 
by the road that became County Road No. 15. The farm was 
served at various time by either the Mille Roches or the Moulinette 
Post Office. This is of interest for in that era it was customary to 
register births and deaths at the Post Office. As a result some of 
Nicholas John Ault's children may be listed in some Bible records 
and Township, County or Provincial records as being born in Mille 
Roches or Moulinette when they were actually born on the Nicho- 
las John Ault farm. 

A small vignette of the social life of this family and their 
friends was recorded in a notebook once owned by Stephen 
Brownell. This was loaned to Helene Marie Bromwell Ault by J.C. 
Harkness of Cornwall. The notebook contains the attendance rec- 
ord of those who went to the social activities and meetings that 
were held between 1827 and 1840 in the Wesley an Methodist 
Church in Moulinette. The Leader of the meetings was Stephen 
Brownell who kept the attendance records of the Cornwall-Mille 
Roches Class No. 2. Catherine H. Ault was listed as being among 
those who attended meetings in 1832. Nicholas John Ault began 
attending the meetings in 1840 when the Reverend Mr. Tuke was 
the minister. During one meeting, a stove located in the middle 
of the room was fired by a log that was too long. As a result soot, 
smoke and ashes littered the assembly before the stove could be 
carried outdoors to avoid setting the building on fire. The name 
of the person who fired the stove with the log was not mentioned. 
The roll call at one meeting included William Raymond, John 
Royce, Alex McNairn, Georfee Mattice, Nicholas Ault, George 
Annable, William Forsyth and Gabriel Forester. A follow-up on 
this group revealed that William Forsyth married Ruth Brownell, 
Gabriel Forrester married Mary Hickey, William Raymond mar- 
ried Sophia Mattice and George Mattice married Ruth Fennel. 

When the 1851 Census was taken in Cornwall Twp. Nicholas 
John Ault was listed as Nicolos, a farmer, age 64, a Methodist, 
born in Canada. His wife Rebecca was listed as age 52, born in 
Canada. The only child living at home was Zenas Gurley Ault, 
age 16, and he left home before his father died in 1857. 

In 1851 Nicholas John Ault granted the WA of Lot 30 in Con- 
cession II, 5th R., in Cornwall Twp. to his second son Simon Wil- 
liam Ault who became the third generation Ault to own this prop- 



181 






erty. At that time Simon William was married and living in Mille 
Roches where the first 5 of his children were born.

MARIA AULT 1793- 

(Maria Ault, John, Johannes) 

Maria Ault of Cornwall Twp., the second of 4 children of the 
Loyalist soldier John Ault and Margaret Bouck, was born on 4 
June 1793 on the John Ault farm on Lot 3 in Concession VIII in 
Cornwall Twp. According to the Williamsburg Parish Register, 
Liber A on Baptisms 1790-1805, her parents were listed as Jo- 
hannes Alt and Margaretha. She was born on 4 June 1793 and 
baptised on 23 July 1793. Her sponsors were Johannes Hahn and 
Magdalena Baush. 

No information could be located regarding a marriage date or 
a death date or a burial site for Maria. 

Maria Ault, as the daughter of the Loyalist soldier John Ault, 
was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land 
when she married or reached the age of 21. No evidence has been 
found that she Petitioned for land or received land.

SIMON J. AULT 1804-1877 

(Simon J. Ault, John, Johannes) 

Simon J. Ault of Cornwall Twp., the third of 4 children of the 
Loyalist soldier John Ault and Margaret Bouck, was born in 1804 
on the John Ault farm located on Lot 3 in Concession VIII in 
Cornwall Twp. He died in 1877 and he was buried in St. Andrews 
United Church Cemetery in Moulinette. 

No information on Simon J. Ault could be located in the Fam- 
ily Bibles or elsewhere. Simon, as the son of the Loyalist soldier 
John Ault, was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of 
Crown land when he became age 21. No evidence has been lo- 
cated that he Petitioned for or received land.

Margaret Ault of Cornwall Twp., the fourth of 4 children of 
the Loyalist soldier John Ault and Margaret Bouck, was born on 
1 Apr 1805 on the John Ault farm located in Concession VIII in 
Cornwall Twp. According to the Williamsburg Parish Records, 
Liber A on Baptisms 1805-1821, whe was baptised on 28 Apr 
1805 and her sponsors were Septer Tracy and Elizabeth Cook. She 
died in 1843 but her burial site has not been located. 

Margaret Ault and Peter Mattice were married on date un- 
known. 

Peter Mattice, the son of Adam Mattice and Elizabeth Amanda 
Rupert, was born in Cornwall in 1805. His death date and 
burial site have not been located. 

Margaret Ault and Peter Mattice had 5 children, all of whom 
were born in Cornwall except Nelson Bates Mattice who was 
born in Moulinette.

land when she married or reached the age of 21. This compiler 
has not located evidence of a Petition or of a grant in her name. 
After his wife died in 1843, Peter and his oldest son left Cornwall 
and went to N.Y. State. The other children were raised by rela- 
tives and friends. Peter and John have been lost to follow-up.

JOHN WILLIAM AULT 1815-1852 

MARY JANE WOOD 1810-1885 

(John William Ault, Nicholas John, John, Johannes)

John William Ault, the first of 8 children of Nicholas John 
Ault and his second wife Catherine Hickey, was born on 22 Nov 
1815 in Williamsburg Twp. The Williamsburg Parish Register lists 
Nicolos Alt and Caty as the parents of John William Ault who was 
born on 22 Nov 1815. His date of Baptism is not clear but his 
sponsors were John Ault, John Hickey and wife. He died, age 37, 
on 3 Sept 1852 on his farm located north of Cornwall Center on 
Lots 18-19-20 in Concession IV, 5th R., in Cornwall Twp. He was 
buried in the old Wesleyan Methodist/St. Andrews United Church- 
yard Cemetery located on Lot 31 in Concession I, 4th R., in Mou- 
linette. This was covered by the developing Lake St. Lawrence in 
1959. 

John William Ault and Mary Jane Wood were married on 29 
June 1842 in Cornwall. An entry in Vol. 5 of the Book of Mar- 
riages for the Eastern District reads as follows: — "John William 
Ault and Mary Jane Wood, spinster, both of the Township of Corn- 
wall were, by license, joined in marriage this 29th day of June in

SIMON WILLIAM AULT 1817-1896 

CAROLINE BROWNELL 1818-1881 

(Simon William Ault, Nicholas John, John, Johannes) 

Simon William Ault, the second of 8 children of Nicholas John 
Ault and his second wife Catherine Hickey, was born on 17 Dec 
1817 on the Nicholas John Ault farm located north of the Village 
of Moulinette on the WV2 of Lot 30 in the II Concession, 5th R. in 
Cornwall Twp. According to the Williamsburg Parish Register, his 
parents were Nicolos Ault and Catarina. He was baptised on 11 
Jan 1818 and his sponsors were Gabriel Forrester and Mary /Poly 
Hickey. He died, age 79, on 20 Jan 1896 in Quebec while visiting 
the home of his son-in-law, the Rev. T. J. Mansell. He was buried 
in the old Wesley an Methodist/St. Andrews United Churchyard 
Cemetery in Moulinette. This area is now covered by Lake St. 
Lawrence. 

Simon William Ault and Caroline Brownell were married, by 
license, on 23 Apr 1844 in the Mille Roches home of Jesse B. 
Hawley. Their witnesses were Gordon Hickey and Eliza Milross 
according to the Records of Marriages in Eastern District. 

Caroline Brownell, the 12th child of Joseph Thomas Brownell 
of Aultsville and Elizabeth Potter, was born on 23 June 1818 in 
Aultsville. Her mother was of Quaker ancestry and in 1822, when 
Caroline was age 4, her father drowned in the St. Lawrence River. 
Her father was buried in the old Wesleyan Methodist/St. Andrews 
United Churchyard Cemetery in Moulinette. Caroline was prob- 
ably raised in the Hawley household for she was living there as a 
dependent when Simon went to live with the Hawleys in 1841. 
Caroline died, age 62, on 24 May 1881 on the Simon William Ault 
farm in the II Concession in Cornwall Twp. and she was buried in 
the old Wesleyan Methodist/St. Andrews United Churchyard 
Cemetery in Moulinette. 

Simon William Ault and Caroline Brownell had 7 children.

Simon William Ault appears to have been a very enterprising, 
resourceful and hard working man who accomplished a great deal 
during his lifetime. Family history intimates that he did not ap- 
prove of his father's third marriage in 1841 to Rebecca Campbell. 
He was age 21 at that time and he left home and went to live with 
Mr. Jesse R. Hawley who was a friend of the family. Mr. Hawley 
lived in Mille Roches where he owned and operated a wool card- 
ing mill which was located along the Mille Roches mill race. Mr. 
Hawley taught Simon the skill of wool carding and it appears that 
he was responsible for Simon becoming a Clothier. In 1844, 
which was 2 years after Simon went to live with Mr. Hawley, he 
and Caroline were married in the Hawley home. Mr. Hawley *s 
kindness to Simon and Caroline was remembered several years 
later by their son Levi Addison Ault who placed two of Mr. 
Hawley's grandsons in advantageous positions in the Ault Wiborg 
Ink Co. in Cincinnati. 

During the early part of his career as a wool carder, Simon 
acquired a wool carding mill in Mille Roches. It is not known 
whether this belonged to Mr. Hawley or to someone else. Simon 
also became a Clothier in Mille Roches and in Moulinette and he 
soon established himself as a business man in these two villages 
which were about a mile apart. The carding and cloth dressing 
mill was destroyed and carried away in a flood about 1876. 

In 1854 Simon's father Nicholas John gave Simon the Nicho- 
las John Ault farm of 100 acres located north of Moulinette on 
the WA of Lot 30 in the II Concession, 5th R. in Cornwall Twp. 
Simon became the third generation Ault to own this property 
which was still listed in his name when the Historical Atlas of 
Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Counties was published in 1879 
by H. Belden & Co. 

The following business transactions may be of interest. 

On 13 May 1854 Simon William Ault, a Clothier of Mille 
Roches, received from Angus Bethune, a gentleman of Cornwall, a 
l A acre tract of land being part of Lot 27 in the I Concession/Lot 
34 in Mille Roches — consideration £5/. 

On 6 July 1861 Simon William Ault grantee, from Elija Burpee 
of Rockford, 111. and Myra his wife, one rod of land in Mille 

186 





Roches on the Kings Highway — consideration £200/. 

In 1864 Simon William Ault of Cornwall, Yeoman grantee, 
from the Hon. George Crawford of Elizabeth town in County 
Leeds, a member of the Legislative Assembly and Elizabeth his 
wife, grantors of part of Lot 37 in Cornwall — consideration £230/. 

The preceding information abstracted from the Land Records 
of Cornwall Twp. in Liber B 74-75 #436, #1377, #1396 indicate 
that Simon's activities were divided between the farm and the vil- 
lages of Mille Roches and Moulinette during the 1850s. He may 
have moved his family to Cornwall in the 1860's so "his children 
would be closer to the Cornwall Grammar School and to other 
educational facilities in Cornwall. 

Simon also developed some business interests in St. Lawrence 
County in New York State for it was a simple matter to cross the 
St. Lawrence river in a boat and he did so with some frequency. 

About 1858 he established a tannery in Brashear Falls and he 
placed his wife's brother, George Thomas Brownell, in charge of 
this venture. It operated at a loss and the project was abandoned. 
He had other interests in nearby New York State for on 17 Jan 
1871 Simon William Ault and his wife Caroline of Ontario, Canada 
were recorded as grantors to W.S. Bennett of a deed to a woolen 
factory in the Village of Raymondville. On 17 Jan 1871 Simon 
and his wife Caroline of Ontario, Canada were recorded as grantors 
to W.S. Bennett of a deed to a Lot and water rights in the Town of 
Norfolk, in St. Lawrence Co. Finally on 10 May 1872 Simon Wil- 
liam Ault and Caroline his wife of Cornwall, Ontario granted by 
deed to N.M. Spalding l A interest in l A acre of land in the Town of 
Brashear in St. Lawrence Co. N.Y. 

The information on Simon Auft's business ventures in Corn- 
wall Twp. were abstracted about 1946 by Helene B. Ault from the 
Land Records of Cornwall Twp. 

The information on Simon William Ault's business venture in 
St. Lawrence Co. N.Y. were abstracted for Helene B. Ault by 
Maurice Gardiner in the County Clerk's Office of St. Lawrence Co. 
Liber 90B, p. 152-155: Liber 92C, p. 415. 

When Simon William Ault died in 1896 he undoubtedly left a 
heritage of accomplishment, resourceful business enterprise, acu- 
men and hard work for reflective consideration by his descendants.

(Margaret Cornelia Ault, Nicholas John, John, Johannes) 

Margaret Cornelia Ault, the third of 8 children of Nicholas 
John Ault and his second wife Catherine Hickey, was born on 18 
June 1820 on the Nicholas John Ault farm located north of Mou- 
linette on the WV2 of Lot 30 in Concession II, 5th R. in Cornwall 
Twp. According to the Williamsburg Parish Register, Liber A on 
Baptisms, 1805-1821, she was baptised Margreth Cornelia Ault on 
27 Aug 1820 and her sponsors were William Casselman, Nancy 
Hickey and Peggy Empy. She died on 25 Nov 1891 in Winches- 
ter Twp. and she was buried in Maple Ridge Cemetery. 

The Marriage Register of the Eastern District records that 
Margaret Cornelia Ault and Adolphus Annable were married on 
21 Sept 1840 and their witnesses were John Ault and Adolphus' 
Aunt Mary Annable. 

Adolphus Annable was the son of John Annable and Ann 
Dixon of Cornwall. He was the grandson of the Loyalist soldier 
Sgt. John Annable. Adolphus was born on 2 Apr 1811 on his 
parents' farm located on Lot 28 in Concession II, 5th R. in Mou- 
linette in Cornwall Twp. He died, age 64, on 28 Jan 1875 in Win- 
chester Twp. and he was buried in Maple Ridge Cemetery. 

Margaret Cornelia Ault and Adolphus Annable had 8 children 
whose birth and death dates are acknowledged with thanks to 
Kenneth Annable of Ottawa.

Book I of Mortgages for Winchester Twp. in Dundas Co. re- 
veals that on 13 Feb 1851 Adolphus Annable and his wife Cor- 
nelia (Caroline) Annable granted a mortgage of $50.00, lawful 
money of Canada, to her brother George Sidney Ault who was a 
cloth draper in Winchester. Witness John H. Harrington and John 
Dillabough. 

It may be of interest to the Annable-Ault family line to know 
that Susan, Sidney and Annie Annable never married. Catharine 
married George Elliott and their grandson George Elliott in 1978 
owned a General Store in Winchester. Alfred married Margaret 



188 



Kerr, the sister of Joseph Kerr who married Unetta Annable. The 
Joseph Kerrs went to Gull Lake, Sask. and some of their descend-

Zenas Gurley Ault was age 7 when his father married Rebecca 
Campbell and he was age 22 when he went to Fond du Lac, Wis- 
consin in 1856. He kept a notebook containing family informa- 
tion. This was loaned to the writer in 1975 by Mrs. William Webb 
Ault of Detroit. The notebook was a small leather volume size 
4 1 /2x2 1 /2 inches containing 65 pages that he had labeled Gurley 
Aults Notebook 1855: Fond du Lac, Nov 3 1856. It was an "im- 
proved mettalie Memorandum Book manufactured by William Col- 
lins of Glasgow and London." One of his first entries was made in 
1855 and this reads — "George S. Ault bought a horse from Gurley 
Ault on July 27 1855 for the sum of $15.00. Paid 1/3 down. 
Signed Z.G. Ault." This indicates that Zenas was living at home in 
1855 when he sold the horse to his brother George Sidney. The 
next entry made in 1857 indicates that he was in Fond du Lac for 
it reads — "Sold work horse for the sum of $125.00 on May 7 
1857 to Dohlen and pardner, Fond du Lac." The third entry of 
interest was made on July 12 1861 for Zenas had returned to 
the St. Lawrence valley and had some financial dealings with 
Adolphus Annable who was married to his sister Margaret Cor- 
nelia. Adolphus sold him 1 overcoat for $9.50, 1 cape for $1.10, 
l A soled boots for .50 and sold him 2 hogsheads of tobacco for 
$1.00. Zenas paid Adolphus $25.50 in cash and he worked for 
Adolphus for 2 months and received a credit of $25.00. Adolphus' 
place of business is not revealed but one would assume that Adol- 
phus owned a General Store which was probably located in Win- 
chester, Other pages in the notebook contained some family birth 
and death dates that enabled this compiler to complete some 
records. 

Sometime between 1861 and 1864 Zenas went to Wellington 
in Prince Edward County where he was employed as a clerk in a 
General Store. Here he met and married Nancy Adelaide Eastman 
who was the daughter of Squire Eastman, a prosperous lawyer 
who donated land in Wellington for a Methodist Chapel and 
School. Zenas Gurley Ault spent the rest of his life in Wellington 
where he owned and operated a hotel. All of the children were 
born and raised in Wellington.

6 J 72 Lee Brownell Ault, b 20 Mar 1886, d 23 Nov 1918 

Levi Addison Ault was educated in the Mille Roches Schools 
and at the Cornwall Grammar School. He left home as a youth 
and joined his older brother Charles who was working in Fond du 
Lac, Wisconsin. Levi obtained work on the Sheboygan and Fond 
du Lac railroad and two years later he became a bookkeeper for 
the Goodrich Transportation Co. He held this position for 4 years. 
In 1873 his brother Charles, who was employed and living in Cin- 

200 



cinnati, urged Levi to come to that city where the opportunities 
for employment seemed greater than in Fond du Lac. 

Levi came to Cincinnati in 1873 and in 1876 he began working 
for the firm of James P. Gay and Co., processors of rosin, lamp 
black and oils. As a result of this experience Levi developed a 
method of preparing Printers Ink and the Ault Wiborg Printing Ink 
Co. was conceived and formed in 1878 by Levi and Frank S. Wi- 
borg. This became an extremely successful business venture and 
it brought great wealth to both families. The Company was man- 
aged by the partners until 1 Jan 1891 when it was incorporated 
with Levi as President. The Ault Wiborg Company became nation- 
ally and internationally recognized as the leader in the printing ink 
field before it was sold and became one of the components of the 
International Printing Ink Co. on 31 May 1923. 

About 1904, Levi purchased 12 acres of the Elmhurst tract of 
land that was owned by the Groesbeck family. He built a rather 
large imposing stone house on the site and he named the estate 
Mille Roches in memory of his birthplace. From this high ground 
one had an impressive view of the Kentucky hills and the Ohio 
river. Terraces, formal gardens and spacious lawns surrounded the 
home where the Aults were privileged to have a luncheon for roy- 
alty after World War I when their Majesties Albert King of the Bel- 
gians and Queen Elizabeth visited Cincinnati. The King and Queen 
were making a goodwill tour of the United States so they could 
thank the people for their generous aid to the Belgian people. 

In 1901, when Levi was President of the Commercial Club of 
Cincinnati, he became interested in the Cincinnati Park System 
and in 1908 he was appointed to membership on the Board of 
Park Commissioners. He served as its President for a period of 18 
years and during this time he became the Park System's greatest 
benefactor (see Ault Parks). 

During his years of residence in Cincinnati Levi was not only 
an active member of the Park Board but he served on the Boards 
of the First National Bank, the Union Central Life Insurance Co., 
the U.S. Playing Card Co., and the Cincinnati, New Orleans and 
Texas Pacific Railroad. He was also a member of several social 
clubs and country clubs in the metropolitan area. 

When he died in 1930 his considerable estate was left to his 
grandchildren. Later in the mid 1930s the Mille Roches house 
was demolished, a street was put through the property, lots were 
sold, and 8 houses were built on the street named Melville Lane.

George Clifford Ault was an artist of considerable talent and at 
one time the American Embassy in London hung one of his paint- 
ings. He spent the early part of his life in Cincinnati and lived on 
Mille Roches farm near Redding, Conn, from 1934 to 1949. Dur- 
ing that time my father, Walter Stanley Ault, corresponded with 
Helene Marie regarding some genealogical connections. During the 
summer of 1946 the Aults spent four valuable weeks gathering 
information on the Aults of the St. Lawrence valley of Ontario. 
They left Redding and returned to Cincinnati about 1949. 

Helene Marie Bromwell spent more than 15 years gathering 
information on the Ault family. She was a meticulous compiler 
who sought accurate and adequate information on each individual. 
She developed a bound 2 Vol. Typescript that she titled "The Ault 
Family in Picardy" and "The Ault Family in Ontario." She 
planned to develop the Typescripts into a genealogy but she was 
unable to do so before she died in 1953. I am grateful to her son, 
the late Charles Albert Ault II, for permission to copy the Type- 
script. It has been an invaluable source of information in prepar- 
ing the present Ault Genealogy.

John William Ault owns two parchment deeds that belonged 
to his grandfather, Oscar Corodon Silvanus Ault. They are par- 
tially legible and in 1977 Mr. Ault wrote the following to this 
compiler: — "One Deed is for a grant of 150 acres of Crown land 
in the Eastern District in the Township of Cornwall, County of 
Stormont, to William Branan in July 1804. The other Deed is for 
a grant of 100 acres of Crown land composed of the east half of 
Lot 24 in the DC Concession in Cornwall Township to Lachlin 
Macdonald dated 9 May 1855. Both Deeds bear the seal of the 
Province of Upper Canada in the time of George III." The pres- 
ent writer has not been able to determine why Oscar C.S. Ault 
owned these two Deeds for no evidence has been found that he 

222

ever owned the properties mentioned in the Deeds. It is quite 
possible that he recognized that they would become antique items 
whose value would increase as they became scarce. 

In 1929 John William Ault began his lifetime of executive 
service for others as an employee of the Y.M.C.A. in Paterson, N.J. 
He remained in Paterson until 1946 when he was transferred to 
Rochester, N.Y. He improved many services of the Rochester 
Y.M.C.A. and was active in civic affairs. In 1951 he moved to 
Jersey City where he became the general executive for the Central 
and other branches of the Y.M.C.A. He was largely responsible for 
renovating the Central branch at a cost in excess of 1 million dol- 
lars. From 1956 until he retired in 1971 he was the general execu- 
tive and key figure in the renovation of the Worcester, Mass. Y.M. 
C.A. and its educational branch. He was a Trustee of this branch. 
He now lives in retirement at Bass River, Mass. and is a member of 
the vestry of St. David's Episcopal Church in South Yarmouth. 
He is a member of the Rotary and is actively teaching retarded 
children to swim.

MICHAEL AULT AND HIS DESCENDANTS 



2 M 9 

MICHAEL AULT 1756-1829 
NANCY ANN BROUSE 1763-1851 

(Michael Ault, Johannes) 

Michael Ault, the Loyalist soldier of Matilda Twp., was the 
eighth of 9 children of Johannes Ault and his first wife Hannah 
Henkel. He was born, the twin of Sophia Maria Ault, on 16 May 
1756 in British Colonial America — probably in the Philadelphia 
area. He died, age 72, on 12 Feb 1829 in the Iroquois settlement 
in the Township of Matilda in Dundas County and he was buried 
in the old section of Iroquois Point Cemetery. The epitaph on his 
gravestone was legible in 197581 and in 1976.82 

Michael Ault, age 28, and Nancy Ann Brouse, age 21, were 
married in July 1784 in Montreal.83 

Nancy Ann Brouse, the daughter of the Loyalist soldier, 
George Brouse, was born in 1763. Her father had served in the 
K.R.R.N.Y. and the family came to Matilda in 1784. She died, 
age 88 years, 4 months on 15 Aug 1851 in the Iroquois settlement 
and she was buried beside her husband in the old section of Iro- 
quois Point Cemetery. The epitaph on her gravestone was legible 
in 1978 and it read as follows: — Nancy (wife of Michael Ault, 
died Feb 12 1829, age 72 years 26 days) died Aug 15, 1851.84 

Michael Ault and Nancy Ann Brouse had 8 children.

Michael Ault and his twin sister Sophia Maria were the two 
youngest children in the Ault family when they left the Philadel- 
phia area between 1759 and 1761 and moved to the Mohawk val- 
ley in the Province of New York. Michael undoubtedly spent his 
early years working on the family farm on Lot 42 W on the Kings- 
borough Patent. He was age 19 in 1776 when Sir John Johnson 
and the group of Loyalist Scottish Highlanders, German, Dutch, 

257 



English and Ulster Irish tenant farmers, who were loyal to Sir John 
and the British Crown, left the Mohawk valley and went to Mon- 
treal. Many of these Loyalists had been in Johnson's personal 
militia and they formed the nucleus of the 1st Battalion of the 
K.R.R.N.Y. and of the Royal Highland Emigrants. This departure 
undoubtedly impressed young Michael who remained in the valley 
with the rest of the family. In 1780 the Aults, including Michael, 
left for Quebec by way of Whitehall and Lake Champlain. In 
1780 Michael, age 24, joined Lt. Col. Sir John Johnson's 1st Bat- 
talion of the K.R.R.N.Y. and served as a soldier in Capt. John 
McDonell's Company of Grenadiers until he was mustered out in 
Montreal on 24 Dec 1783. When his unit was disbanded, Michael 
was listed as a soldier, age 23, born in America.85 

After his discharge in December of 1783 Michael probably 
spent the rest of the winter of 1783-1784 with his family in one 
of the refugee camps near Sorel. When the Aults and other Loyal- 
ists left for Montreal, New Johnstown and the land they were to 
settle along the north shore of the St. Lawrence river, Michael and 
his bride Nancy were with the group. From available records one 
would judge that the entire Ault family, after stopping at New 
Johnstown, went on to the settlement of Iroquois in Township 
No. 5 — Matilda. This became the gathering place for the Carmens, 
Brouses, Aults, Walters, Boucks, Coons and many other Loyalists 
who were destined to settle the area. Construction "Bees" were 
probably arranged here when a log cabin or farm building was to 
be built nearby. From this point one could set out to evaluate the 
location and condition of the land that might become available for 
barter, trade or sale. This would sometimes enable old friends to 
obtain farms next to one another. 

Michael seems to have been very resourceful, aggressive and 
successful in his land ventures for his name appears more frequently 
than any other Ault in the Indices of Land Grants and transac- 
tions. I shall attempt to follow each property he acquired from 
acquisition to disposal. 

For his services to the Crown as a soldier in the 1st Battalion 
of the K.R.R.N.Y., Michael drew lots for a grant of Crown land in 
1784 in New Johnstown. Michael appears to have occupied his 
grant before he received his handwritten Ticket of Location which 
was issued later. It reads as follows on the front side: — 



258 




Johnstown the 20th June 1786 
Township No. 5 
West half of Lot 20 in front 
Michael Ault 



and the back side reads as follows: — 



Michael Ault 

I hereby certify that 
this Ticket of Location 
is in the handwriting 
of Mr. McNiff and 
that such ticket 
has ever been considered 
by the holder and by 
me as an authority 



W. Chewett 
formerly Surveyor 
for the Eastern 
District 



No. 5 



86 



Michael's name was entered on the WA of Lot 20 in Conces- 
sion I in Matilda on McNiff's map of 1786. This 137 acres of 
Crown grant land, acquired via Ticket of Location appears to have 
become his home farm where he built his pioneer settlers log 
cabin. Ke also began clearing and planting the land and in due 
time a spacious farmhouse was built on the property. His farm 
passed inspection by a Loyalist Commission and he obtained the 
following affidavit before applying for a Patent. 

"Surveyor Generals Office 

26 January 1808 

We hereby certify that Michael Ault is entered on the Quebec 

Plan of the Township of Matilda for the west half of Lot No. 20 

in the 1st Concession (The East half of the said Lot having been 

described to John Meddaugh) and is clear of difficulty. 

Chewett & Rideout 
Acting Surveyors General "87 

On 7 Jan 1807 Michael bought the John Meddaugh farm con- 
sisting of 142 acres of the E l A of Lot 20 in Concession I in Matilda. 

On 24 Feb 1808 Michael patented all 137 acres of the WA of 
Lot 20 and on 31 Mar 1808 he patented all 142 acres of the WA of 

259 



Lot 20 according to Liber Q E Folio 86 of the Indices to Patents 
for Matilda. On 8 Mar 1813 Michael sold 50 acres of Lot 20 to 
Edmund Doran. On 18 Oct 1823 Michael bequeathed his home 
farm property, now approximately 229 acres of Lot 20, to his son 
George F. Ault who in turn bequeathed it to his son Guy C. Ault 
who was Michael's grandson and the third generation Ault to own 
this grant of Crown land. 88 

During the time Michael and Nancy were living on their home 
farm Nancy's father George Brouse and family were living on an 
adjoining farm on Lot 21 and Michael's half brother Everhart Ault 
and his family were living on the WV2 of Lot 19. These families 
were considered to be among the pioneer Loyalist settlers in the 
Iroquois community that became incorporated as the Village of 
Iroquois in 1857.87 

As the son of Johannes Ault the Loyalist soldier, Michael was 
eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land when 
he married or became age 21. Michael Petitioned for this grant in 
1787 and received 200 acres of Lot 6 in Concession VII in Matilda. 
It appears that both the Petition and the grant papers were lost or 
misplaced and the following Petition represents Michael's attempt 
to obtain papers declaring him to be the owner of this Lot. The 
following handwritten material was not completely legible. It was 
copied by me from Microfilm obtained in September 197790 

"To His Excellency Francis Gore, Esquire, Lieutenant Governor 
of the Province of Upper Canada, In Council: 

The Petition of Captain Michael Ault of Matilda, Eastern Dis- 
trict and Province of Upper Canada 
Humbly Sheweth 

That he has sometime in the year 1787 received and had pos-

Apr 1816:-

"Personally appeared before me John Crysler and duly sworn 
made Oath and saith that he only searched the several land offices 
for the original authority for the land which is claimed cannot be 
found, has reason to believe they are mislaid or lost. 

Sworn before me at York in the Home District in the Province

"I do hereby certify that the within Michael Ault is now alive, re- 
siding in Matilda, that he has retained his Loyalty during the late 
war and was under no suspicion of aiding the enemy. 

Given under my hand at York this 15th day of April 1816.

The following notes indicate the action taken on the Petition:— 

"Petition received 11 April 1816 from John Crysler Esq. Referred 
to the Surveyor General to report — by order I. Imoyle. Lot 6 in 
the 7th Concession of Matilda reckoned on the Eastern Boundary 
line of the Township and on the Quebec plan is located in the 
name of Michael Ault and also on the District Schedule. That any 
description has issue no authority is found in this office.

Warrant issued 24 Apr 1816. Entered Book 1 Page 340" 91 

From the foregoing it appears that the office of the Surveyor 
General confirmed that Michael's Petition of 16 April 1816 was in 
order and that he should be declared the rightful owner of 200 
acres of Lot 6 in the 7th Concession in Matilda that he had re- 
ceived in 1787. Michael patented this property on 20 June 1816. 

Before Michael's father Johannes died in 1796, he granted the 
Crown land that he had received via his Ticket of Location to 
Michael. The following papers identify the grant: —

S.G.O. 28 March 1807 






Michael patented this property on 31 Mar 1807, according to 
Liber Q.E. Folio s40 of the Index to Patents for Matilda. He sold 
the entire 142 acres of the EV2 of Lot 19 in Concession I in Matil- 
da to William Stamford on 7 Jan 1808.93 

About 1797 Michael acquired, or received, 200 acres of Lot 11 
in Concession III in Matilda, as recorded in Liber C Folio 596 of 
the Index of Patents for Matilda. 

The Petition and series of memoranda, all handwritten, that 
follow indicate the problems that were encountered in recording 
the granting and ownership of land in the early 1800s. This ma- 
terial was copied by me in Sept 1977. The microfilm was not 
clear at all times — nor is the material. 

"Matilda January 24, 1811 
May it please your Excellency : 

Agreeable to my Provisional Land a statement concerning the 
difficulty I have met with in the purchase of a Lot of Land from 
George Kintner which I spoke to your Excellency of when you 
lodged at my house on your way from Lower Canada last July. I

purchased from George Kintner the eastern 3/4 of Lot 27 in the 
6th Concession commenced from the eastern boundary of said lot 
of land. George Kintner holds government deed and is also on the 
map for that farm as Mr. Chewett has informed me by certificate 
at the same time John Saver has obtained a government deed of an 
older date for the same Lot but is on the map for Lot 27 in the 
5th Concession reckoned from the eastern boundary but it is in 
the 6th Concession reckoned from the western boundary. I wish, 
if consistent to have my title for the land that I have purchased 
confirmed but if this may or cannot be done at present I wish that 
your Excellency be pleased to grant that I obtain that intended for 
John Saver which is now left vacant by mistake which is Lot 27 in 
the 5th Concession reckoned from the eastern boundary.

"It does not appear that any deed has been completed in the name 
of John Saver for Lot 27 in the 5th Concession in the Township of

of which I hereby have the honor to transmit to you for the infor-

that the Patent in the name of John Saver has completed conform-

scription to John Saver describes Lot 27 in the 5th Concession in 
Matilda reckoned from the eastern boundary of the Township and 
the description to George Kintner in 1802 for the eastern 3/4 of

ary of the Township which descriptions agree with the locations 
on the plan.

"Read in Committee 3 Oct 1811 

It appears that by error in the Attorney Generals Office a pat- 
ent has been issued to John Saver for Lots 20 and 21 in the 6th 
Concession instead of Lots 20 and 21 in the 5th Concession on 
which he was located and for which the description was obtained 
from the Surveyor Generals Office. That a subsequent grant for 
3/4 of Lot 27 in the 6th Concession was made to George Kintner 
and by him sold to the Petitioner. The Council cannot adjudicate 
the sales and transfer but if Saver persists to hold the grant it is 
reasonable that the Lot described for him say 27 or 3/4 of 27 in 
the 5th Concession should be presented to George Kintner or his 

name inscribed on the plan in order that Ault and his 

may claim under the Commission, when the order to such effect 
will be sufficient sanction. The Surveyor General certified that 
Saver is the original owner."

The foregoing material regarding the Petition of Michael Ault 
on Jan 29, 1811 was obtained by me from Microfilm Reel No. 
1610 in Sept 1977 94 

Upper Canada Land Petitions also reveal that Michael Ault 
Petitioned for land in Cornwall (Microfilm C 1610). 

On McNiff's map of 1786 Michael Ault's name was inserted as 
the owner of 100 acres of the WA of Lot 34 in Concession I in 
Osnabruck Twp. and he is credited as patenting this property. This 
may be in error for Nicholas Ault received this grant of Crown 
land on 24 Nov 1785 and he patented the property on 12 Mar 
1797. 

Nancy Ann Brouse, as the daughter of the Loyalist soldier 
George Brouse, was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of 
Crown land when she became age 21 or married. On 6 Dec 1791 
the Land Board, consisting of Messrs. Finley, Collins and Grant 
recommended that Nancy Ault receive 200 acres of Crown land. 
This recommendation to be recorded in Land Book B of Grants of 
Crown Land in Upper Canada 1787-1791.95 This grant consisted 
of 200 acres of Lot 26 in Concession V in Matilda. On 27 May 
1797 this grant was patented by Michael and recorded in Liber C 
Folio 596 of the Index to Patents for Matilda Twp. On 13 Mar 
1824 Michael bequeathed 100 acres of the E l A of Lot 26 to his son 
George F. Ault and 100 acres of the WA of Lot 26 to his son 
Jacob Ault. On 15 Mar 1826 George F. Ault sold 100 acres of the 
WA of Lot 26 to Thomas Sternburgh 96 

During the period of settlement in the three Counties Lord 
Dorchester, formerly Sir Guy Carlton, felt that a strong Militia 
should be developed for home defense. On 20 June 1788 he com- 
missioned Jacob Farrand to be a Captain of a Battalion of Militia 
to be raised in the Townships of Matilda and Williamsburg.97 
Michael, like most of his compatriots, was expected to serve in the 
Militia. In 1803, when a Battalion of Infantry was being raised in 
each of the 3 Counties, Michael became one of six Lieutenants in 
the Dundas Battalion under the command of Lt. Col. Allan 
McDonell.98,99 

Michael appears to have pursued a part time career in the Mili- 
tia for he was commissioned a Captain in the 1st Dundas Militia 
and he served in that capacity during the War of 1812. During the 
war he applied for materials to construct a guard house on Mr. 
Shaver's point.100 

The War of 1812 Losses Claims shows that Michael Ault filed a 
Claim for losses sustained due to the war.101 



266 




:# 



In 1814 Michael became a private in the Provisional Light Dra- 
goons of Upper Canada. 1^2 

One of Michael's military achievements has been reported by 
HarknesslOS who reveals that Captain Michael Ault had a brief 
but victorious skirmish with some American Forces on 16 Sept 
1812. Quote: — "There were three preliminary brushes in 1812- 
1813 which were not without interest to the people who knew the 
river front in Dundas. On 16 Sept 1812 a short distance west of 
Point Iroquois about 500 American militia attacked a brigade of 
bateaux with military stores en route from Montreal to Kingston. 
This brigade was escorted by a detachment of a Newfoundland 
regiment commanded by a Major Heath cote and a flank Company 
of Dundas Militia under Captain Ault. The Americans had taken 
up a position on Toussaints Island situated near the center of the 
river, about opposite the property once owned by the Binions — 
Lots 30 and 31 in the 1st Concession of Matilda. Between Tous- 
saints and the mainland there was a small island — Presqu'isle. A 
part of Captain Aults Company under Ensign Clark was ferried to 
this island just as the Americans were about to land. The latter 
were fired upon and they retreated to the larger island. The inhab- 
itants quickly gathered and with our old friend, Colonel Alan Mc- 
Donell at their head and with Captains Ault, Shaver, Munro, Dul- 
mage and R.O. Fraser, who had brought along a 9 pounder cap- 
tured from the French at Chimney Island, they soon compelled 
the Americans to evacuate Toussaints." 

Michael Ault, the Loyalist soldier, pioneer settler, farmer and 
militiaman died without making a will on his Matilda farm at the 
age of 73 on 13 Feb 1829.

land when she became age 21 or married. In 1807 she Petitioned 
for land stating that she was the daughter of U.E.L. Michael Ault. 
She was a spinster age 21 at the time and her O.C. for 200 acres of 
Crown land was issued on 26 Jan 1808. Her land may have been 
the 200 acres of Lot 1 in Concession XI in Winchester Twp. for 
she patented this property in 1808. 

Note: The Margaret Ault— Mathias Barclay portion of this rec- 
ord may require revision and correction for it is based upon inade-

George Fredrick Ault of Matilda, one of 8 children of the Loy- 
alist soldier Michael Ault and Nancy Ann Brouse, was born on 4 
Aug 1793 on the Michael Ault Crown grant farm located in the 
Iroquois settlement on the WA of Lot 20 in Concession I in Ma- 
tilda. According to the Williamsburg Parish Register, Liber A on

Miranda Ramond was the daughter of John Ramond of Corn- 
wall. Her listing in the Williamsburg Parish Register was partially 
obliterated and incomplete. Her death ca 1823 may have been 
during or after the birth of her 3rd child.

George F. Ault grew up on his parents' farm in the WV& of Lot 
20 in Concession I in Matilda. During the War of 1812 he served 
in the Militia and attained the rank of Captain. However he was 
better known as Major George Ault. 

George, as the son of the Loyalist soldier Michael Ault, was eli- 
gible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land when he 



270 



became 21 or married. According to the Upper Canada Land Peti- 
tions on Microfilm 1610 that I obtained from the Public Archives 
of Canada George F. Ault's Petition read as follows: — 

"To His Excellency Francis Gore Esquire, Lieutenant Governor of 
the Province of Upper Canada, In Council : 

The Petition of George Ault of the Township of Matilda County 
of Dundas 
Humbly Sheweth 

That your Petitioner is the son of U.E.L. Michael Ault of Matilda 
and has reached the age of 21 years and upwards and was born in 
Upper Canada and has taken the Oath of Allegiance and has never 
received any land or order for land from the Crown. Wherefore 
your Petitioner prays that your Excellency will be pleased to grant 
him 200 acres of waste land of the Crown and permit John Crysler 
Esq. of Williamsburg to be his agent to locate same and take out 
the Deed when completed. 

and your Petitioner will ever pray 
Cornwall 
28 Jan 1817 George Ault" 

The affidavits stated that George was the person he claimed to 
be in the within Petition, that he was born in Canada, that he had 
taken the Oath of Allegiance, that he retained his loyalty during 
the War of 1812, that he did not aid the enemy and did his duty in 
defense of the Province. The foregoing statements were sworn to 
before Judge S. Anderson in Cornwall on 28 Jan 1817. 'The Peti- 
tion of George F. Ault of Matilda for land as a S.U.E.L. received 
24 Mar 1816 from John Crysler, John Beattie, Council Clerk. 
Granted 200 acres 20 May 1817 and O.C. issued 20 May 1817. 
Entered in Land Book J page 117." This grant appears to be 200 
acres of Lot 13 in Concession V in Matilda. 

On 18 Oct 1823 George received, from his father Michael now 
age 67, the home farm of approximately 229 acres located in the 
WA of Lot 20 in Concession I in Matilda. George, Miranda and 
their two children John William age 8 and George Nelsson age 7 
had been living in the home farmhouse with Michael and the rest 
of his family. Miranda died when their third child, William D.Ault 
was born in 1823. 

When George and his second wife Mary Dillabough were mar- 
ried on 9 Mar 1824 they lived on the home farm that George had 
received from his father. This farm was eventually inherited by 
Guy G. Ault who was Michael's grandson. 

271 




On 13 May 1824 Michael gave George the EV£ of Lot 26 in 
Concession V in Matilda. 

When the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda those listed as liv- 
ing on the home farm on Lot 20 were the widow Mary Dillabough 
age 44, born in Upper Canada a Wesleyan Methodist. Their oldest 
son Guy was listed as head of the household, a farmer, age 42, 
born in Upper Canada and a Wesleyan Methodist. The other chil- 
dren of George and Mary living in the household were listed as 
Julia Catherine age 20, Horatio Michael age 19, Edward age 13, 
Ellen age 8, Nancy age 6, George age 4, and Mary Ann age 3. The 
following were not listed as living on the home farm — John Wil- 
liam, George Nelsson, William D., Almira, Charles Christian and 
Louise. 

When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda the households on 
the Michael Ault home farm were occupied by Guy G. Ault age 
42, his wife Jane Shaver age 31 and their children Ada age 19, 
George E. age 14, John age 6, and Jennie age 3. Mary Dillabough 
was age 61. Living on the home farm were Edward Ault age 32, 
his wife Minnie age 22 and their son Charles H. age 8. Marie Beebe 
age 66, who was the widow of John Ault, and her son John Ault

Incomplete information indicates that William D. Ault and his 
first wife Mabian Jane lived on their farm located west of Dixon's 
Corners on Lot 21 in the V Concession in Matilda. Their 5 chil- 
dren Helena, Etta, Daniel, William Jr. and Ernest Edward were 
born and raised on this farm. 

When the 1861 Census was taken in Matilda the occupants of 
the William D. Ault household were William D. Ault, Mabian Jane 
Ault, William Ault Jr. age 9, and Ernest Edward Ault age 7. Fur- 
ther information on this family could not be found in 1946 and in 
1975. 

William D. Ault and his second wife Mary Ann McGruer were 

281 



married between 1871 and 1877. They lived on the same farm lo- 
cated west of Dixon's Corners on Lot 21 in the V Concession in 
Matilda and their 6 children were born on this farm. 

The Land records for Matilda which are stored in the County 
Budding in Morrisburg reveal that in 1880 William D. Ault sold a 
part of this farm to W. Daniel. In 1884 Jacob Barkley bought 
part of this farm from an Executor and in that same year Daniel 
Ault conveyed the remaining part of the farm to his brother Wil- 
liam Ault Jr. In 1887 Jacob Barkley as the Executor for William 
D. Ault conveyed, by deed, the remaining property to Ernest Ed- 
ward Ault. The reasons for these multiple changes in farm owner- 
ship are not known. Ernest Edward Ault appears to be the last 
owner of the William D. Ault farm and it would appear that his 
father William D. Ault and his stepmother Mary Ann McGruer still 
lived on the farm. At that time land in Matilda had all been taken 
up many years ago and land could be obtained only by inheritance 
or purchase. However, land for homesteading was available in the 
Canadian west and by 1904 the William D. Ault— Mary Ann 
McGruer family had decided that they would leave Matilda. Their 
oldest son Alexander Jacob, age 26, and his younger brother How- 
ard, age 19, took the train to Winnipeg to find out if homesteading 
land was available. Alexander Jacob, who was known as Sandy, 
visited some of the North Dakota Aults who had come to the 
North Dakota Territory from Matilda in 1881. Sandy found that 
the choice land in North Dakota was taken up and he returned to 
Winnipeg. In late 1904 or early 1905 the two brothers obtained 
homesteading land in Saskatchewan in the Bladworth settlement 
which was located on the road that became Route 11 between 
Regina and Saskatoon. They promptly felt confident of their 
ability to homestead the 160 acres of land that was allotted to 
each qualified applicant who was age 21 or older and they sent for 
the rest of the family. Their father William D. was now age 82, 
their mother Mary Ann was age 61, Margaret was age 20 and Ansel 
was almost age 15 when they left Dixon's Corners and took the 
train to Winnipeg. They arrived in Bladworth on Ansel's 15th 
birthday — 13 June 1905. By 1908 they had proven their ability 
as homesteading farmers who were entitled to 160 acres of land 
for each homesteader. Those who were not of age became eligible 
for grants later. William D. Ault lived for 3 years and Mary Ann 
lived for 5 years in their Bladworth homestead. They died know- 
ing that they had established the Aults in this part of Canada and 
that their children had a proper start towards a secure future.

George Michael Ault, the first of 5 children of Michael Nicho- 
las Ault and Olive Jane Cory, was born ca 1823 on his grandpar- 
ents *s Crown grant farm located on the WA of Lot 20 in Conces- 
sion I in Matilda Twp. He died ca 1901 on his farm located south 
of Irena on Lot 18 in Concession II in Matilda and he was buried 
in Iroquois Point Cemetery. 

George Michael Ault and Lucy Ann Strader were married ca 
1855 in Matilda. 

Lucy Ann Strader, the daughter of Simon Strader and Lavinia 
Keck, was born in 1839 in Matilda. Lucy was the sister of Marga- 
ret Strader who was married to Nicholas Michael Ault, the brother 
of George. 

George Michael Ault and Lucy Ann Strader had 6 children, all 
of whom were born on the George Michael Ault farm on Lot 18 in 
Concession II in Matilda.

5 M 77 Ella Strader Ault, b 5 Aug 1875, d 21 Feb 1969 

When the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda, George Michael 
Ault was listed as age 28, born in Upper Canada and living with his 
parents on Lot 23 in Concession 5 in Matilda. His brother Nicho- 
las Michael age 20 and his sister Harriette age 12 were living in the 
same household. 

Sometime in the 1860s George and Lucy moved from the 
Michael Nicholas Ault household to their own farm located south 
of Irena on Lot 18 in Concession II in Matilda. 

When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda, George Michael 
Ault was listed as age 54, a farmer, and Lucy was listed as age 40. 
Their 5 children living at home were Simon age 17, Priscilla age 
12, Lavinia age 10, Nicholas age 8 and Jacob age 1. 

The Land Records of Dundas County in the County Registry 
Office in Morrisburg, as abstracted by Mrs. P.A. Thompson of 
Brinston in 1977, reveal that all or parts of Lot 18 in Concession 
II in Matilda had several owners between 1870 and 1892. In 1855 
George Michael Ault and Lucy Ann Strader occupied part of this 
Lot that was apparently owned by George's father, Michael Nicho- 
las Ault. The following transactions all refer to Lot 18. In 1870 



288 






George Michael Ault granted part of the WA to George Doran who 
in turn granted the WV2 to George Michael Ault. In 1874 George 
Michael Ault granted 1 acre of the WA to Charles Munroe and in 
1874 Michael Nicholas Ault, in his will, left the entire Lot to his 
grandchildren Simon, Lavina, Nicholas and Jacob Ault. In 1876 
George Michael Ault, Nicholas Ault and Alex Eamon, as Execu- 
tors of the Estate of Nicholas Michael Ault, granted a half acre of 
land in the south end of the EV£ of Lot 18 to the Trustees of 
School Section 23 for a School that was built on this property. In 
1890 John Harkness as the Executor of the Estate of Michale 
Nicholas Ault granted the NV2 of the EV2 to George S. Ault. In 
1892 Simon M. Ault, George Michael's son, granted the south 50 
acres to his brothers Nicholas and Jacob Ault; John Doran granted 
1 acre in the S.E.C. to Nicholas Ault and Francis Munroe granted 
Lot 18 to George Michael Ault. All of the preceding transactions 
were by Deed except for the Michael Nicholas Ault grant to his 
grandchildren. 

In 1881 George, Lucy, Nicholas, Lavina and Ella were part of 
the Ault family group that went to Winnipeg where they hoped to 
obtain homesteading land in Canada. George's younger brother 
Nicholas Michael seemed to be the leader of this migration and the 
journey is described in his genealogy. The George Michael Ault 
family joined the others who went south into the Dakota Terri- 
tory and they all arrived in the village of Cavalier in October 1881. 
They applied for homesteading land and in early 1882 George 
Michael Ault and his family began their new life on 160 acres of 
farmland located about 6 miles south of Cavalier in the NEU of 
Section 5 in Lodema Twp. This farm was located across the road 
from the Nicholas Michael Ault tarm and the two Ault brothers 
and the two Strader sisters were neighbors for the next 10 years. 

In 1892 the George Michael Ault family decided to return to 
Matilda. George Michael was now age 69 and Lucy Ann was age 
61. They sold their homestead and property to Nicholas Michael 
Ault and returned to the home of their son Simon M. who had re- 
mained in Matilda on Lot 18 in Concession II. Simon then con- 
veyed, by Deed, 30 acres of Lot 18 to his brothers Nicholas, age 
28, and Jacob, age 24. Nicholas obtained an additional 1 acre of 
Lot 18 from John Doran. The father, George Michael Ault, ob- 
tained 95 acres of Lot 18 from Frances Munroe and George and 
Lucy lived on this property until they died.

In 1881 Paulina Mahala Ault and William J. Bush decided to 
join Paulina's parents and her two brothers in their exodus from 
Matilda. They were all seeking homesteading land in the Canadian 
west and the addition of 10 members of the Bush family increased 
the homesteading group to 32. After reaching Winnipeg, as out- 
lined under the genealogy of the Nicholas Ault family, the Bushes

were the only family who decided to remain in Canada. 

William, Pauline and the children began their homesteading life 
near Elm Creek in Manitoba. A few years later they moved to 
their new farm near Gull Lake in Saskatchewan. Paulina died 
there and I understand that one of their sons, who has since died, 
inherited this farm. Letters to two descendants in the family have 
not yielded additional information. Recently, Mrs. Laura M. Gall 
of Richmond, B.C., a descendant in the Bush family, was able to 
send me some death and birth dates on this family.

his parents' Crown grant farm located west of Dixon's Corners on 
Lot 23 in Concession V in Matilda Twp. in Dundas Co. He died, 
age 82 years 3 months, of pneumonia and cardiac failure on 11 
Sept 1913 in the home of his son George who lived in Hensel, 
Pembina Co., N. Dak. He was buried in the Ault plot in the Cava-

When the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda, Nicholas Michael 
Ault was listed as age 12, born in Upper Canada and living with his 
parents. When the 1871 Census was taken, the occupants of the 
Nicholas Michael Ault household were listed as Nicholas Michael 
Ault, age 39, and his wife Margaret Strader, age 36. In the same 
household were Charles A. age 18, Olive (Aula) Henrietta age 14, 
John age 12, Sophia age 9, Margaret (Maggie) age 6, Michael Nich- 
olas age 4 and George age 4V6 months. By 1881 there were the fol- 
lowing additions to the family — Josephus born in 1873, Joseph- 
ine Catherine born in 1875, Maude Etta born in 1876 and Nina 
Lavinia born in 1881. 

Although Nicholas Michael inherited his father's farm on Lot 
23 in Concession V in Matilda, one would judge that it was not 
productive enough to support this family of 2 adults and 11 chil- 
dren. Nicholas began selling the farm in 1870 when he sold part 
of the SE Corner to Alpheus Thompson who also bought part of 
the EVfc from Nicholas in 1875. In early 1881 Nicholas sold an- 
other piece of the farm to R. Johnson and shortly thereafter he 
sold the remaining acreage to his older brother George Michael 
Ault. 

About this time the Canadians in Ontario and the Maritime 
Provinces and the Americans living in the Atlantic States were 
being offered land for homesteading in the west. The Territories 
and Districts in both countries were being transformed into Prov- 
inces and States. The Province of Manitoba was formed in 1870 
and the neighboring Dakota Territory became North and South 
Dakota in 1889. In 1905 the Provinces of Saskatchewan and Al- 
berta were established. By 1883 the Northern Pacific Railroad 
was carrying passengers and freight between Ashland, Wisconsin 
and Portland, Oregon. In 1881 the Canadian Pacific Railroad was 
doing the same thing between dockside Montreal and Winnipeg 
and in 1885 it reached Vancouver, British Columbia. 

Land was being surveyed and roads were being developed for 
transportation was now opening up the West. An epidemic of 
"Land Fever" developed on both sides of the border. Canadian 

292 



homesteaders began arriving in Winnipeg. American homesteaders 
who were interested in settling in the fertile northeastern part of 
the Dakota Territory, made their way to the village of Cavalier in 
Pembina County. In both places eligible male homesteaders, age 
21 or older, were required to appear in person at the Land Office 
where they could sign up for a l A Section of Public Land contain- 
ing approximately 160 acres. The applicant had to pledge that he 
would work and improve the land and pay the government a nomi- 
nal fee for the land within a period of 5 years of residence. 

This method of settling the prairie land of Canada and the 
United States continued for more than two decades of the 20th 
century. After World War I there was a great increase in the num- 
ber of European immigrants entering both countries and they soon 
began taking up land as far west as the Rockies. In Canada "Har- 
vester Excursion Trains" originating in Quebec City and in Mont- 
real brought shiploads of immigrants to Winnipeg and to the Land 
Offices in Saskatchewan and Alberta. As a result, these two Prov- 
inces became settled by ethnic groups whose communities and 
farms became models of agricultural enterprise and cooperative 
living. 

The writer had a brief educational experience with some post- 
war immigrants about 1920 when he obtained an August vacation 
job as a sandwich and coffee boy on a Harvester Excursion Train. 
It was an entirely Coach train and it was entirely filled with dark 
haired dark eyed parents and children who did not speak English. 
No blond blue eyed families of refugees were on this trip. The 
interior of the train was hot during the day and cold at night dur- 
ing the trip across northern Ontario. Families ate their own bread, 
cheese and sausage. They bought some hot tea at night but they 
rarely bought a sandwish or coffee. Poverty was evident and 
apprehension showed itself in many ways but it was also evident 
that they were all united in their quest and hopes for a secure fu- 
ture. It was an unforgettable experience for this compiler. 

By 1881 a number of the Ault families in Matilda had decided 
to leave and seek homesteading land in the Canadian West. This 
was a formidable and challenging venture for each person for none 
of them had ever been far from their St. Lawrence valley areas. 
Nicholas Michael Ault seemed to be the adventuresome leader of 
the movement. He had sold all of his property. In 1881 he was 
age 50 and his wife Margaret was age 47. They had 10 living chil- 
dren whose ages ranged from 28 years to 6 months. Their eldest 
son Charles was age 28 and married to Eliza Hayes who was age 20 

293 












and they had 2 children, Herman Michael age 3 and Martin age 1. 
The Charles A. Ault family decided to join the group. Nicholas 
Michael Ault's daughter Sophia was age 19 and married to Peter 
Thompson age 27. They had no children and they decided to join 
their parents and brother. Paulina Mahala Ault and her husband 
William John Bush and their family of 8 children decided that 
they would also seek land in the West. It is of interest to observe 
that Nicholas Michael's older brother George Michael Ault and his 
wife Lucy Ann Strader appear to be the last members of the Ault 
family to loin in the exodus from Matilda. George had recently 
bought the last piece of Nicholas Michael's farm on Lot 23 in Con- 
cession V in Matilda. George and Lucy had 6 children and they 
were older than any other adult members of the party. However, 
in due time it was decided that the Ault brothers who had married 
the Strader sisters would do well to try homesteading together. 
George was a little more cautious than Nicholas and he left his old- 
est son Simon M. Ault, age 24, in charge of their farm on Lot 18 
in Concession II in Matilda while the rest of the family, except 
Priscilla and Olivia, went to Winnipeg. 

This exodus of 32 members of the Ault-Thompson-Bush fami- 
lies can undoubtedly be duplicated in other family histories from 
Stormont and Dundas. 

When the group arrived in Winnipeg via the Canadian Pacific 
Railroad in the late summer of 1881, they all expected to obtain 
homesteading land in Canada. From some unrecorded reason the 
Bushes were the only family who remained to homestead in Canada. 
This writer has not been able to determine why the Ault-Thomp- 
son families decided to cross the border and seek land in the Da- 
kota Territory. However, they all left Winnipeg and 20 Aults and 
2 Thompsons arrived in the village of Cavalier in Pembina County 
in October 1881. Cavalier was the County seat of Pembina 
County and a Land Office was located in Cavalier. Land in the 
County was selling for $1.25 an acre in 1881. 

In February 1882 Nicholas Michael Ault signed a government 
agreement to pay $216.65 for his 173 32/100 acre farm that was 
located about 6 miles south of Cavalier in the NWU of Section 4 in 
Lodema Twp. About the same time his brother George Michael 
Ault began homesteading across the road on 160 acres of the NE 1 ^ 
of Section 5 in Lodema Twp. The two Ault brothers and the two 
Strader sisters were neighbors for the next 10 years. 

Nicholas Michael Ault operated a successful farm for he soon 
paid for his land and the Pembina County Clerk's Office issued a 

294 





Receivers Receipt to Nicholas. This stated that the property had 
been paid for in full. On 10 Feb 1885 the Registrar of Deeds of 
Pembina County issued a Deed to the Land to Nicholas Michael 
Ault. It was signed by the 21st President of the United States, 
Chester Alan Arthur. On 23 Dec 1890 Nicholas Michael Ault re- 
ceived his Citizenship Papers and he became a full-fledged Citizen 
of the United States of America. 

In 1892 George Michael Ault age 69, and his wife Lucy Ann 
Strader age 61, decided to return to Canada. They sold their 160 
acre farm and homestead to Nicholas Michael who .now found 
himself operating about 333 acres of farmland. This was a family 
farm and a family farm operation where the children, grandchil- 
dren and other Dakota relatives gathered for planting, harvesting, 
picnicking on holidays, family reunions, marriages and holiday 
celebrations. This was the homestead of the founding father of 
all the Dakota Aults. 

When Nicholas Michael Ault retired from his homestead farm 
in 1904, he had achieved recognition as one of the outstanding 
farmers and pioneers in Pembina County. He was a conservative 
and wise counselor in County affairs. He fostered stability in the 
community. Before he died he gave the George Michael Ault 
homestead farm to his son Michael Nicholas Ault whose son Ray- 
mond Chester Ault is presently the 3rd generation Ault to own 
this property. Nicholas Michael's own homestead farm was left to 
his son Josephus Ault. This farm is now owned and operated by 
Vernon Martin Ault, his grandson, who is a 3rd generation Ault 
owner of the property. 

When Nicholas Michael Ault died in 1913, his extensive obitu- 
ary reflected the feelings of the community which paid tribute to 
his conscientious services in the Cavalier-Hensel area of Pembina 
County. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 
Cavalier and his funeral services were conducted by the Reverend 
G.W. Roberts.

ents' farm located west of Dixon's Corners on Lot 23 in the V 
Concession in Matilda. He died, age 78, on 8 Feb 1931 in Cavalier 
and was buried in Cavalier Cemetery. 

Charles A. Ault and Eliza G. Hayes were married on 19 Sept 
1877 in Matilda. 

Eliza G. Hayes, the daughter of William Hayes and Nancy 
Dillabough, was born in 1861 in Williamsburg Twp. She died, age 
23, on 1 Nov 1884 on their farm which was located south of Cava- 
lier in Lodema Twp. She was buried in the Furstenau Cemetery in 
Lodema Twp. and in 1915 the body was disinterred and buried in 
the Cavalier Cemetery. 

Charles A. Ault and Eliza G. Hayes had 2 children both of 
whom were born in Matilda.

When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda, Charles A. Ault 
was listed as age 16 and living with his parents. By 1881, when 



312 




the next census was taken, Charles was age 26 and had been mar- 
ried to Eliza G. Hayes. Their son Herman was age 3 and Martin 
was age 1. This family of 4 Aults were members of the Ault fam- 
ily group of about 34 people who left Matilda in the late summer 
of 1881 and took the train to Winnipeg. They all planned to ob- 
tain homestead ing land in Manitoba or Saskatchewan but for some 
unknown reason most of the members of the group decided to 
cross the border and obtain homesteading land in the Dakota Ter- 
ritory. Those who went from Winnipeg to the settlement of Cava- 
lier included the Charles A. Ault family, the George' Michael Ault 
family, the Nicholas Michael Ault family and the Sophia Ault— 
Peter Thompson family. The Paulina Mahala Ault -William John 
Bush family remained in Winnipeg for they planned to homestead 
in Manitoba. It is quite probable that Charles and his family lived 
with his parents on their homestead farm in Lodema Twp. until 
Charles could find suitable homesteading land or until he could 
buy a farm. On 8 Jan 1884 Charles found a suitable farm located 
on the SWA of Section 4 in Lodema Twp. He paid $200.00 for 
the farm and in early 1884 they all moved into their new farm 
home. Charles' wife Eliza died, age 23, on 1 Nov 1884 on this 
farm and Charles was left alone to raise his two sons. Later on 
Charles sold the farm and moved to Cavalier where he ran a stable 
and feed barn for several years. In his later years he lived in Cava- 
lier with his son Martin.

about 6 miles south of the village of Cavalier on the NW4 of Sec- 
tion 4 in Lodema Twp. About 1885 John traded this homestead 
farm for the homestead farm of a man named Jutra. This new 
farm was located about 3 miles south of Cavalier on the SW*4 of 
Section 27 in South Cavalier Twp. It became known as the John 
Ault Home Farm and all of the children of John and Anna were 
born and raised on this farm. John Ault retired from farming in 
1904 and the farm was then taken over and run by his bachelor 
sons Arthur Clarence and Glen Earl. By 1934 Arthur and Glen 
needed someone to manage their household and on 10 June 1934 
their niece Laura Hattie Ault came to the farm and in 1951 Laura 
was made a partner in the ownership and management of the farm. 
She has remained a partner to date. Wayne Floyd Ault began 
helping on the farm as a young man and in 1970 Wayne, the 
grandson of John Ault, was made a partner. The John Ault Home 
Farm has grown from the 160 acres in 1885 to 750 acres in 1977 
by the addition of the NV 2 of the SE 1 ^ of Sect. 27 in So. Cavalier

ents' farm located west of Dixon's Corners on Lot 23 in Conces- 
sion V in Matilda. She died, age 43, on 16 Aug 1905 on their farm 
located on the NE J 4 of Sect. 17 in Advance Twp. in No. Dak. She 
was buried in the Furstenau Cemetery in Sect. 11 in Lodema Twp. 
The remains were disinterred in 1915 and buried in the Cavalier

In the late summer of 1881 Peter Thompson, age 27 and So- 
phia Ault, age 19 joined the Ault family exodus from Matilda Twp. 
where all of the desirable land was largely owned and inherited 
within family lines. They took the train to Winnipeg with the 
Nicholas Michael Ault family, the George Michael Ault family, the 
Charles A. Ault family and the Paulina Mahala Ault— William John 
Bush family. They were all in search of homesteading land in the 
3 prairie provinces but for some unrecorded reason they went 
south of Winnipeg and crossed the border into the United States. 
In Oct 1881 they arrived in the village of Cavalier in Pembina Co. 
in the northeast corner of the Dakota Territory. The Ault-Bush 
family were the only group who stayed in Winnipeg and home- 
steaded in Manitoba. 

It is quite probable that Sophia and Peter lived with Sophia's 
family until Peter found suitable land. In Feb 1884 Peter found 
suitable homesteading land located south of Cavalier on the SEU 
of Section 4 in Lodema Twp. He paid $200.00 for this land and 
the Receiver Receipt for this transaction is recorded in the Pem- 
bina Co. Courthouse in Cavalier. The first 7 of the Thompson 
children were born and raised on this farm. On 24 Dec 1894 Peter 
Thompson bought a farm from John B. and Lizzie Verme and 
according to the County records he paid $1,100.00 for the Verme 
farm which was located in the NE J 4 of Section 17 in Advance 
Twp. in Pembina Co. In 1897 Blanche Thompson was born in 
Leyden, No. Dak. and she is presently living with her son Vernon 
Fitzsimonds in No. Battleford, Sask. 

It may be of interest to some of the Thompson descendants to 
know that William never married, he joined the Canadian Army 
and was killed in France during World War I; Maude died in Spruce 
Lake, Sask.; Pearl was killed in an auto accident in Idaho; Charles 
died in Grand Forks, No. Dak.

Sophia Ault was born and raised on her father's tenant farm 
on Lot 42 W in the Kingsborough Patent of Sir William Johnson. 
Sophia and Conrad were married and had 3 children before Con- 
rad left the Mohawk valley to join Lt. Colonel Sir John Johnson's 
K.R.R.N.Y. in Montreal. Sometime before 1786 the Snyders ap- 
pear to have settled in Williamsburg Twp. on Conrad's grant of 
Crown land in the WA of Lot 5 in Concession I. 

Sophia Marie Ault, as the daughter of the Loyalist soldier Jo- 
hannes Ault, was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of 
Crown land when she married or became age 21. Her Petition of 
22 Feb 1806 was approved and her O.C. for 200 acres of Crown 
land was issued on 26 Feb 1806.104 

Conrad Snyder appears to have been the son of Andreas 
Schneider who farmed Lot 67 W in the Kingsborough Patent. 
When the 1st Battalion of the K.R.R.N.Y. was mustered out in 
Montreal on 24 Dec 1783, Conrad was listed as a soldier, age 31, 
born in America, in Majors Company. His brother Adam Schnei- 



442 




der was listed in the same Company. 

When Conrad Snyder made his will on 18 June 1802, he left a 
considerable amount of property to his children. The will was 
probated in the Surrogate Court of the Eastern District of Upper 
Canada before Samuel Anderson Eqs. Judge of the said Court on 5 
Feb 1810.105

EVERHART AULT AND HIS DESCENDANTS 

g p in 

EVERHART AULT 1765-cal851 
ANNA MARY CHATTERSON 

(Everhart Ault, Johannes) 

Everhart Ault, the Loyalist soldier of Matilda, was 1 of 2 chil- 
dren of Johannes Ault and his second wife Gertrude Rebecca 
Boug. He was born on 20 July 1765 on his father's tenant farm 
on Lot 42 W in the Kingsborough Patent of Sir William Johnson in 
the Mohawk river valley in the British Colonial Province of New 
York. This property was in Albany County until 1772 when 
Tryon County was created. When Tryon County was divided in 
1784, the Patent was within the limits of Montgomery County. 
According to the Vosburg listing!09 of the Records of the Re- 
formed Dutch Church of Stone Arabia in the village of Palatine, 
Everhart was baptised Johannes Eberhardus Ault on 13 Sept 1765. 
His sponsors were Johann Eberhard Cochnat and his wife Barbara. 
He died ca 1851, or earlier, in the Iroquois settlement in Matilda 
and he may have been buried in the old section of the Iroquois 
Point Cemetery. 

Everhart Ault and Anna Mary Chatterson were married ca 
1786 in Matilda. 

Anna Mary Chatterson — No information except to note that 
the Williamsburg Parish Register of Baptisms, Liber A 1790-1805, 
recorded her as the wife of Everhart Ault and the mother of Jo- 
hannes, Catharina and Elizabeth Ault. 

Everhart Ault and Anna Mary Chatterson had 8 children, all of 
whom were born in Matilda Twp.

3 E 20 Rachel Ault, b 1 May 1811, d 28 Aug 1886 

Although he was baptised Johannes Eberhardus Ault, he be- 
came known as Everhart Ault. The Williamsburg Parish Register 
refers to him as Eberhard Ault and some papers and records list 
him as Ev'rt, Edward or Everett. These differences in spelling 

445 



should not be confusing if one remembers that the early Loyalist 
settlers in the St. Lawrence river valley were learning to read, 
write and speak the English language. The German language was 
used in the Lutheran Churches and more than 30 years elapsed 
before the English language came into use in the Churches.HO 

During his childhood in the Mohawk valley, there can be little 
doubt that Everhart was affected by the turbulent economic and 
social unrest that prevailed in the valley preceding and during the 
American Revolution. Everhart was age 11 in 1776 when Sir John 
Johnson and many of the Mohawk valley Loyalists fled to Mont- 
real. In that same year the Johnson properties and the farms of 
other known Loyalists were seized by the American Patriot forces 
and authorities. Everhart's father was no longer a Johnson tenant 
farmer. The family moved to the Fonda area and in 1777 Ever- 
hart watched his older half brothers Nicholas, Conrad and John 
leave for Montreal where they planned to join Lt. Col. Sir John 
Johnson's Loyalist forces. In 1780 some of the Ault family in- 
cluding Everhart, left the valley and went to Montreal where Ever- 
hart, at the age of 15, joined Sir John Johnson's K.R.R.N.Y. I 
have not been able to determine how long Everhart served in Sir 
John's forces for his name was not listed in the Mustering Out Roll 
of 24 Dec 1783. He may have been mustered out at an earlier 
date or he may have been in a military hospital at that time. How- 
ever the error of omission was corrected when the Centennial vol- 
ume was published in 1885 for he was listed as having been a sol- 
dier in the K.R.R.N.Y. in that volume. 

Everhart was with the family when they made the journey up 
the St. Lawrence river to Montreal, to New Johnstown and to 
Township No. 5 — Matilda, in 1784. He drew lots for his grant of 
Crown land in New Johnstown and he occupied his grant of 137 
acres of the WA of Lot 19 in Concession I in Matilda with the help 
of a surveyor or one of his assistants. His Ticket of Location con- 
tained the following handwritten information on the front sideHl

Note: The foregoing grant to Everhart Ault is an exact photo- 
copy of the original in the Ontario Archives Ref: R.G. 1., C IV: 
Matilda. 

McNiff *s map of 1786 shows that the WA of Lot 19 in Conces- 
sion I in Matilda was occupied by Edward (Everhart) Ault and the 
WA of Lot 19 was occupied by John (Johannes) Ault. 

Everhart decided that the WV2 of Lot 19 would be his home 
farm. He was age 19 and he promptly began building his pioneer 
settlers log cabin on his property. He also began clearing and 
planting his 140 acres. He had been put on the Provision List in 
1784 and this assured him of having food and supplies for 3 years. 
In 1789 Everhart appeared before the Land Board and asked to be 
put on the Ration List for he was now married and had a wife and 
2 children to feed. His farm was not yet producing enough to sup- 
port the family. His request was granted and he was put on the 
List for Supplementary Rations. 

On 5 May 1787 representatives of the Land Board inspected 
Everhart's farm for each Loyalist settler who received a grant of 
Crown land was required to show that he had improved his land 
before he could apply for a Deed or Patent. Everhart 's farm 
passed the inspection and the report added that Lot 19 in Conces- 
sion I in Matilda was occupied by 2 men and 1 woman, presuma- 
bly Everhart, John (Johannes) and either Everhart 's or John's 
wife. On 31 Mar 1807 Everhart patented his home farm of about 
137 acres of the WA of Lot 19 in Concession I in Matilda.H2 

As the son of Johannes Ault the Loyalist soldier, Everhart was 
eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land. A 
search among the Upper Canada Land Petitions on Microfilm C 
1615 revealed that Everhart 's Petition for a grant of Crown land 
was filed on 3 May 1790 and read as follows: — 

*To His Excellency the Governor—,—,—,—,—,— —,—,—, In Council 
The Petition of Everhart Ault, late private soldier in the K.R.R. 
N.Y. 

Humbly Sheweth 

That your Petitioner begs to represent that he has not yet received 
the 100 acres Bounty for all surviving Loyalist settlers ordered un- 
der the instructions of the year 1783 as also 100 acres for his wife 
and child. And as your Petitioner conceives himself entitled to the 
Bounty prays that it may be granted to him. 

and your Petitioner in duty bound shall 
Matilda, May 3 1790 ever pray 

Everhart Ault"

Although the foregoing grant of Crown land to Everhart ap- 
pears to be in response to his Petition of 3 May 1790, 1 am unable 
to decipher the name of the Twp. where the grant was located. 

I have not been able to determine how Everhart received all 
of Lot 15 in Concession V in Mountain Twp. He patented this 
property in 1801.116 

On 18 Mar 1810 Everhart sold his Crown grant home farm on 
the WA of Lot 19 in Concession I to Edmund Doran. Everhart 
was age 45 at that time and I have not been able to determine 
where he lived after 1810. His children were still young and his 
last child Rachel was born in 1811.

JOHN AULT 1790-before 1851

(John Ault, Everhart, Johannes) 

John Ault of Matilda, one of 8 children and the only son of 
the Loyalist soldier Everhart Ault and Anna Mary Chatterson, was 
born on 28 Feb 1790 in the pioneer settlers log cabin that his 
father had built on his Crown grant farm on the WA of Lot 19 in 
Concession I in the Iroquois settlement in Matilda. According to 
the Williamsburg Parish Register, Liber A on Baptisms 1790-1805, 
John was baptised Johannes Ault on 27 June 1790. His sponsors 
were his grandparents Johannes Ault and his wife Gertraudt. He 
died, before the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda, on his farm 
located east of the settlement of Irena on Lot 14-15 in Concession 
III in Matilda. His burial site has not been located. 

John Ault and Maria Beebe were married on date unknown in 
Matilda. 

Maria Beebe — no information except to record that she was 
born in Lower Canada in 1805 and died shortly after 1882. 

John Ault and Maria Beebe had 12 children — all of whom 
were born in Matilda. The ages of the children, as recorded in the 
1851-1871 Census, do not always agree with their ages, as recorded 
in birth dates.

John Ault, as the son of the Loyalist soldier Everhart Ault, 
was eligible to Petition for a grant of 200 acres of Crown land 
when he became 21 years of age or when he married. A search of 
the Upper Canada Land Petitions revealed that on Jan 28 1812 
John Ault Petitioned for a grant of Crown land as follows: — 



451 



"To His Honor Isaac Brock Esquire President and Major General 
of His Majesties Forces in the Province of Upper Canada, in Coun- 
cil The Petition of John Ault of Matilda 
Humbly Sheweth 

That your Petitioner is the son of Everhart Ault, an E.L. — Empire 
Loyalist, that he has attained the full age of twenty one years and 
upwards and has never received any land or order for land from 
the Crown. Wherefore your Petitioner prays your Honor may be 
pleased to grant him 200 acres of waste lands of the Crown and 
permit Henry Markle Esq. of the Town of York to be his agent 
and take out the Deed when completed. 

and your Petitioner will ever pray 
John Ault" 

The following affidavits accompanied John Ault's Petition. 

"John Ault maketh Oath that he is the person which he de- 
scribes himself to be in the within Petition and is twenty one years 
and upwards of age and has never received any lands or order for 
lands from the Crown. 

John Ault 
Sworn to me in open Sessions this 28th day of January 1812 
S. Anderson, Chairman." 

"Michael Ault maketh Oath and saith that John Ault is the 
person that he describes himself to be in the within Petition and 
that he verily believes the substance of it to be true. 

Michael Ault 
Sworn to me in open Sessions this 28th day of January in the year 
1812. S. Anderson, Chairman." 

"I certify that John Ault of Matilda in the Eastern District has, 
on the 28th day of January in the year of our Lord one thousand 
eight hundred and twelve, taken the Oath of Allegiance before me 
as prescribed by law. 

Given under my hand at Cornwall in said District the 28th day of 
January 1812. S. Anderson, Commissioner." 

The following notes were made on the disposal of John Ault's 
Petition. 

"The Petition of John Ault son of Everhart Ault, E.L., of Ma- 
tilda received 12th February 1812 from Henry Merkle Esq. It 
does not appear that the Petitioner has had any land by order of 
the Council. I. Imoyle 

Presidents Office, 24 Feb 1812. Referred to the Executive Coun- 
cil by order of the President. J.A. Moore 



452 






Read in Council 25 February 1812. The Petitioner recommended 
for a grant of 200 acres of land as the son E.L. Thos Scott, Chair- 
man. Approved James Benke, Presid. Lot D 106 sent to 

3 Mar 1812" 

A follow-up on John Ault's Petition of 28 Jan 1812 reveals 
that the grant consisted of 100 acres of the WV2 of Lot 14 and 100 
acres of the EV2 of Lot 15 both located east of the settlement of 
Irena in Concession III in Matilda. This became a significant and 
important grant for the land was eventually divided into several 
Ault farms containing farmhouses, barns and outbuildings that be- 
came "Home Farms" where some of the descendants of Everhart 
and John Ault began their careers as farmers. This location enabled 
the Aults to keep informed about other land and farms that be- 
came available in the area. The Aults were thus placed in a posi- 
tion to acquire valuable fertile farmland in the back Concessions. 
As their need for new land increased they exchanged and deeded 
land to one another. They acquired land from their neighbors and 
they sold land to them. When their families increased in size and 
they outgrew their sections of the "Home Farm " they left and be- 
gan farming elsewhere in Dundas County. 

The Home Farm of John Ault and Maria Beebe seems to have 
been located east of Irena on Lot 14-15 in Concession III in Ma- 
tilda. When the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda the John Ault 
household was occupied by his widow Maria Beebe Ault who was 
listed as age 45, born in Lower Canada, a Wesleyan Methodist. 
Living in the same household were Sidney age 19, James age 18, 
Ransome age 14, Lucy age 12 and John age 10. Maria's oldest son 
Philip lived on the property with his wife and 4 children. Another 
son Joseph S. with a wife and 2 children also lived on the property. 

When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda, the John Ault 
farmhouse was occupied by his widow Maria Beebe Ault who was 
now age 81. Their son John, who was age 26 and single, lived with 
his mother. The rest of the children had moved and were living 
elsewhere. 

By 1882 Maria had conveyed most of Lots 14 and 15 to her 
children and her last transaction in 1882 was when she gave the 
farmhouse and the remaining lVz acres of Lot 15 to her son Philip. 

The following footnote is made on this John Ault record. 

In 1975 Mrs. Russell J. Ault sent information to me that she 
had obtained from the Public Archives of Canada, showing that 
John (Johannes) Ault received a grant of Crown land consisting of 
the NEV6 of Lot 18 in Concession VI in Matilda. According to 

453 



Carter's "Dundas" a John Ault was the original patentee of the 
NEU of Lot 18 in Concession VI in Matilda in 1836. 

John (Johannes) Ault died in 1796 and his son John died in 
1833. Michael Ault's son John died in 1829. The only living John 
Ault in 1836 was Everhart's son John (1790-ca 1851). The unan- 
swered question is — Did John Ault (1790-ca 1851) inherit and 
patent his grandfather's property?

Philip Ault, the eldest son of John Ault and Maria Beebe, in- 
herited a portion of the John Ault property which consisted of 
half of Lots 14 and 15, located east of Irena in the III Concession 
in Matilda. 

When the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda, Philip Ault and 
his wife Sophia and their 4 children were living in the farmhouse 
of his widowed mother Maria Beebe Ault. Philip was listed as a 
farmer, age 32, born in Upper Canada, a Wesleyan Methodist. His 
wife was listed as age 32 and born in England. Their children were 
listed as Harriette, age 9, Jesse Charles, age 7, Mary Ann, age 6, 
and Annedra Susana, age 2. 

When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda, Philip appeared 

458 



to be living in his own farmhouse on Lot 14 in the III Concession 
in Matilda. The occupants of the household were Philip, age 50, 
Sophia Ann Edwards, age 50, Ellen, age 18, Sarah, age 16, Emily, 
age 14, Hester Victoria, age 12, Marian, age 10, Aramentha, age 8, 
and Philip Edwin Edwards, age 5. Their oldest son Jesse Charles 
and his wife Mary Melinda Doran, age 24, and their 2 children 
Edith, age 6, and George, age 1, were living in the Philip Ault 
house which appears to have been built between 1851 and 1871. 

The writer is indebted to Mrs. Patsy Ault Thompson, who in 
July 1977 spent considerable time and dedicated effort in abstract- 
ing the Land Records of Dundas Co. which were stored in the Reg- 
istry Office in Morrisburg. These records indicate that Philip Ault 
was the senior inheriting member of the John Ault descendants 
who occupied Lots 14 and 15 in the III Concession in Matilda. 
Transactions involving these properties, which began sometime 
after 1812 when John Ault received the land as a Crown grant, 
were frequent, complicated and sometimes incompletely recorded. 

In 1886 Philip Ault granted, by deed, 16V2 acres of Lot 14 to 
D. Larmer, and in 1870 Joseph Seeley and D. Larmer granted, by 
deed, an unspecified amount of Lot 14 to Philip Ault. In 1891 
and again in 1893 Philip Edwin Edwards Ault, the son of Philip 
Ault and Sophia Ann Edwards, granted, by deed, an unspecified 
amount of Lot 14 to John Doran. In 1893 Jesse Charles Ault, the 
son of Philip and Sophia Ann, gave up his legacy and the dower 
rights of his sister Ann Elizabeth of 10 acres of Lot 14 to John 
Doran. The last transaction by an Ault involving Lot 14 took 
place in 1893 when Philip Edwin Edwards Ault conveyed, by 
deed, an unspecified amount of Lot 14 to John Doran. 

The transactions involving Lot 15 in the III Concession in Ma- 
tilda extend from 1867 to the present. This 200 acres of Crown 
land was granted to John Ault in 1812 and some of it is still 
owned by some of his descendants. John Ault's son Philip again 
appears to be the most active participant in the early land transac- 
tion, for in 1867 he conveyed, by deed, 1 acre of Lot 15 to his 
brother Joseph S. Ault. In 1874 Philip conveyed, by deed, 2 acres 
of Lot 15 to his sister Maria Ault, who was married to Albert Sel- 
lers. In 1875, Philip conveyed, by deed, 7 acres of Lot 15 to 
James Barkley. In 1877, Maria Ault conveyed, by deed, IOV2 acres 
of Lot 15 to Laney Barkley, who was the wife of Maria's brother 
Joseph S. Ault. In 1877, Laney and Joseph Ault conveyed, by 
deed, l A acre of Lot 15 to Philip Ault. In 1882 Maria Beebe Ault, 
in what appears to be her last transaction, conveyed, by deed, IV2

acres of Lot 15 to Philip Ault. Philip Ault's last transaction ap- 
pears to have taken place in 1883 when he conveyed, by deed, 22 
acres of Lot 15 to James A. Barkley. In 1893 Jesse Charles Ault, 
Ann Elizabeth Ault, and Philip Edwin Edwards Ault conveyed, by 
deed, an unspecified amount of Lot 15 to John Doran. 

Transactions involving Lot 15 from 1925 to the present touch 
upon the lives of Ault families that are living and for the present 
further information is omitted. 

Philip Ault's will, dated 28 May 1887 was witnessed by Arthur 
F. Merkley and C.A. Myers. The executors were Charles Shaver, 
John W. Gilson and Robert E. Bouck — all of Matilda. 

The will provided that his wife Sophia Ann Edwards was to re- 
ceive $300.00 per year, and she was to inherit the farm where the 
testator now lives. Upon her death Philip Edwin Edwards Ault 
was to inherit the property. Philip Edwin Edwards Ault was in- 
structed to pay his brother Jesse Charles Ault the sum of $1,000.00 
in six annual payments, beginning 1 year after the decease of the

When the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda, George J. Ault 
was listed as age 26, born in Upper Canada, and Episcopal-Meth- 
odist and a laborer and shoemaker by occupation. His wife Eliza 
Locke was listed as age 29, born in Upper Canada and an Episco- 
pal-Methodist. Living in the same household were their children 
Sarah N.M. age 4, Sabrina age 2 and an infant son who was waiting 
to be christened.

When the 1861 Census was taken in Dundas County, the 
George J. Ault family were listed as living in Mountain Twp. 
George was listed as age 37, born in 1824 in Upper Canada and a 
Wesleyan Methodist. Eliza Locke was listed as age 37, born in 
1824 in Upper Canada. Their children living at home were Sarah 
N.M. age 12, Sabrina age 10, Mary age 7, Allen age 4 and Rachel 
age 2. 

When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda, the George J. 
Aults had moved from Mountain Twp. to Matilda. George was 
listed as age 47, a farmer-shoemaker and Eliza Locke was listed as 
age 42. Living at home were Sarah N.M. age 22, Mary age 17, 
Addea age 14, Rachel age 11, Allen age 9, Birth ea age 7, Lide age 
5 and James Evert age 3. 

The preceding information which was obtained from incom- 
plete family records, family Bibles, census figures, birth and death 
dates on record with the Township and County, illustrates some of 
the problems encountered in compiling material for a Genealogy. 
One can only hope that the figures presented are reasonably accu- 
rate. 

After their marriage in 1848, George and Eliza lived on a 30 
acre farm located east of Irena on Lot 12 in Concession V in Ma- 
tilda. When the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda, George, Eliza 
and their first 3 children were recorded as residents of Matilda 
Twp. When the 1861 Census was taken in Dundas County, the 
family of 5 were living in Mountain Twp. Their length of stay in 
Mountain Twp. is not known but it may have been related to 
George's occupation as an accomplished boot maker for he was 
widely known for the quality of his long leather cowhide boots. 
He may have found it advantageous to move from Matilda Twp. 
to Mountain Twp. 

In or before 1868 the George J. Ault family moved from 
Mountain Twp. to Matilda Twp. for the deed to their 30 acre farm 
on Lot 12 in Concession V in Matilda had been transferred from 
Richard Locke to George J. Ault. The family were thus included 
in the 1871 Census in Matilda. Their last child, James Everett 
Ault, was born and raised on this farm and he lived on the farm 
until he married Susan Coons Gore in 1896. In 1900 George J. 
Ault conveyed this farm, by deed, to his son James Everett Ault. 
George and Eliza then moved to the James Everett Ault— Susan 
Coons Gore farm near Hainsville. Susan Coons Gore was the wife 
of their son James Everett Ault and she had inherited the farm, 
located near Hainsville in Concession V in Matilda, from the Spink

family. George and Eliza died in the Hainsville home of their son 
James Everett Ault and their daughter-in-law Susan Coons Gore 
Ault.

in the Joseph S. Ault household at that time. 

Sometime between 1872 and 1877 the Joseph S. Ault family 
of 2 adults and 10 children appear to have outgrown the home 
farm on Lots 14-15 in Matilda. They moved to Lot 23 in Conces- 
sion VII in Matilda. Their family was raised on this farm and Jo- 
seph and Laney lived here, near the settlement of Hulbert, until 
they died. Pieces and bits of acreage of this farm were passed back 
and forth between Joseph and Laney and their children Philip, 
Amasa, Lemuel and James. Between 1872 and 1904 at least 22 
entries involving the transfer of 3 to 30 acres between members of 
the family can be found in the Land Books of Dundas County in 
the Dundas Registry Office in Morrisburg. The last recorded 
Joseph and Laney Ault transaction was in 1902 when they trans- 
ferred, by deed, 10 acres of the EVfc of Lot 23 to their son James 
Ault.

Matilda. This property had been a legacy to Jesse Charles Ault 
and a dower right of Ann Elizabeth Ault which had undoubtedly 
come from their, father Philip. In that same year, 1893, Jesse

6 E 97 Minnie Rose Ault, b 22 Jan 1896, d 

When the 1851 Census was taken in Matilda, Amasa was re- 
corded as Amsa, age 2, born in Upper Canada and living with his 
parents in the home of his grandmother Maria Ault on Lot 14-15 
in Concession III in Matilda. When the 1871 Census was taken in 
Matilda, Amasa was listed as Amasia, age 21, single and living with 
his 9 brothers and sisters on the farm on Lot 14-15 in Concession 
III in Matilda. 

After Amasa was married in 1875, he and Matilda may have 
lived on the Philander Rose farm on the SE part of Lot 25 in Con- 
cession VI in Matilda. In 1886 Philander Rose conveyed, by deed, 
the SE l A of Lot 25 to Amasa — who sbon acquired the rest of Lot 
25. In 1889 Amasa conveyed, by deed, the NE 3/4 of Lot 25 to 
George Gilson and in that same year Amasa conveyed, by deed, a 
portion of Lot 25 to the Trustees of Matilda School No. 12. In 
1894 G.S. Henders conveyed, by deed, all of Lot 26 in Concession 
VI to Amasa. Lot 26 became the home farm of Amasa Ault and 
Minnie Rose and their 3 chDdren were born on this farm. Byron 
Rose Ault inherited this farm from his father Amasa and the last 

7 of the 9 children of Byron Rose Ault were born and raised on 

this farm. The Matilda School No. 12 was closed in 1939. At 

present, the 3 sons of Byron Rose — Franklin Winston, Wendell 

Byron, and Michael Lee Ault — own the entire acreage of Lots 25, 

26 and 27 that are part of a 7-farm complex that they own and 

operate. This included the No. 12 Matilda School land and the 

Gilson farm.

When the 1871 Census was taken in Matilda, Lemuel Ault was 
listed as Leonard Ault, age 17, living with his parents on their farm 
on Lot 23 near Hulbert in Concession VII in Matilda. 

Lemuel Ault was the second son of Joseph S. Ault and Laney 
Barkley. The Land Records of Dundas County show that he was 
involved in numerous transactions between various members of 
the Ault family. Lot 23 in Concession VII in Matilda became his 
home farm where all of his children were born and raised. This 
Lot changed hands many times. In 1880 Lemuel received, by 
deed from his uncle Philip, 30 acres of Lot 23. This 30 acres was 
next conveyed, by deed, from Lemuel to Philip in 1882 and in 
that same year Philip conveyed, by deed, the 30 acres to Almira 
Ault who was Lemuel's wife. In 1888 James Ault, who was Lem- 
uel's brother, conveyed by deed 9 acres to Lemuel. In 1888 Lem- 
uel and Almira conveyed, by deed, 30 acres to James Ault and 
James Ault in turn conveyed 30 acres to Lemuel. In 1890 Lemuel 
conveyed, by deed, 6 acres to his brother Philip B. Ault and in 
1890 Lemuel conveyed, by deed, 3 acres to his mother Laney 
Ault. In 1896 James Ault and his wife conveyed, by deed, an un- 
recorded amount of Lot 23 to Lemuel. In 1903 Jacob Taylor, by 
deed, conveyed 20 acres to Lemuel Ault who, by deed, conveyed 

483 



20 acres to Joe Thorpe in 1914. Lemuel's last known land trans- 
action was recorded in 1916 when he conveyed, by deed, an un- 
specified amount of Lot 23 to John Thorpe. 

These multiple land transactions undoubtedly served a purpose 
at the time but they can confuse some issues for they did not al- 
ways indicate where one lived and farmed nor when someone re- 
tired from farming.
