INTRODUCTORY. 



THE ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY herewith presents to its mem- 
bers the first volume of what it is hoped will be a long list of valuable 
records and papers. The Editorial Committee regards itself as fortu- 
nate in securing copies of the Langhorn and McDowall Registers, which 
have been obtained through the good services of Mr. T. W. Casey, of 
Napanee. These covered what was known as the Midland District, 
but, as the descendants of the persons mentioned therein are now 
widely scattered over the whole Province, they will doubtless be of 
great interest and of increasing value to a very large number of 
persons. The existence of these Registers has been known to very 
few one of them, the Langhorn St. Paul's Register, came to light only 
after part of this publication had been sent to the printer. It is now 
in the safe keeping of the officials of the Kingston Diocese. 

It is known that at least one similar register exists in connection 
with St. Mark's church at Niagara, a copy of which, it is hoped, will 
shortly find a place in our published records ; and it is not improbable 
there are others. The Editorial Committee will receive very gratefully 
any information respecting such from readers of this volume. 

The two Thomson letters are particularly valuable in shedding 
light on the apparently haphazard way in which our lake and river 
international boundary line has been drawn ; and for the first time 
Canadians will have an opportunity not only to respect the memory 
of the British Commissioner for his work, but to feel thankful that we 
were, on the occasion of the settlement, represented by a man who 
was thoroughly capable scientifically, and who so firmly stood by the 
treaty -rights. For the privilege of copying these documents we have 
to thank Mr. Aubrey White, Assistant Commissioner of Crown Lands 
for the Province of Ontario. 



4 INTRODUCTORY. 

The character of these and of the other papers in this issue is 
sufficient to show in a general way the scope of what our Society has 
in view by way of publication. There is no lack of material. Several 
municipal records of early date have recently been unearthed, and 
from these much may be gathered respecting the development of our 
present system of local government. 

A large portion of this Province is now beyond the mere bread- 
and-butter condition ; and, with an admirable school system, the time 
has come when our old people may, with dignified leisure, recall the 
days of old, while it is the duty, as well as the privilege, of the 
younger generations to study by-gone events in the light of the present 
day, and to lay the foundations of the future aided by the experience 
of the past.

[Assented to 1st April, 1899.. 

WHEREAS "The Ontario Historical Society" has by its petition 
represented that a society under the name of " The Pioneer and 
Historical Association of the Province of Ontario," Canada, was organ-

maintained under the said name until the 23rd day of May, 1898, when 
it was reorganized under the name of " The Ontario Historical Society " 
with a wider basis of membership ; that the said society has been 
maintained since the last mentioned date, and that the objects of the 
said society are :

of Ontario and Canada ; to this end studying the archseology of the 
Province, acquiring documents and manuscripts, obtaining narratives 
and records of pioneers, conducting a library of historical reference, 
maintaining a gallery of historical portraiture and an ethnological and 
historical museum, publishing and otherwise diffusing information 
relative to the history of the Province and of the Dominion, and in 
general encouraging and developing within this Province the study of 
history ; and whereas the said petitioner has prayed that for the better 
attainment of the said objects, the said society may be incorporated by

4. The society may make such by-laws, not contrary to law, as 
they shall deem expedient for the administration and government of 
the society, and may repeal, amend, or re-enact the same from time to 
time, observing always, however, such formalities as by such by-laws, 
or by the by-laws now in force, may be prescribed to that end, and 
generally shall have all the corporate powers necessary for the purposes 
of this Act. 

5. The present by-laws of the existing society, not being contrary 
to law, shall be the by-laws of the society hereby constituted, until 
they shall be repealed or altered as aforesaid. 

6. Until others shall be elected according to the by-laws of the 
society, the present officers of the existing society shall be those of the 
society.

corporate name, and forwarding a copy of such resolution under the 
hands of its president and secretary to the Education Department and 
to the secretary of said society.

with the said society under the constitution and by-laws of the latter 
in that behalf, shall thereby become incorporated by the name under 
which it shall have become affiliated, and with all the powers and 
privileges conferred by this Act upon the Ontario Historical Society. 

11. Each society so affiliated shall send copies of all its publications 
to the Ontario Historical Society, from time to time as issued, and shall 
also make an annual report to the said society, containing full infor-

the year ; and section 8 of this Act shall not apply to any such society, 
unless so directed from time to time by the Legislature or the 
Education Department.

12. In the event of any such affiliated society ceasing to exist, its 
library, museum, and other property, if any, shall immediately become 
vested in the Ontario Historical Society, which may by its officers in

ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 



REV. JOHN LANGHORN. 

Rev. John Langhorn was the first regularly sent Church of 
England Missionary to Upper Canada. He was a native of Wales, 
educated at St. Bees College, Cumberland, England, and was Curate of 
Hartwell, Eng. He was selected as Missionary to Upper Canada by 
the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, in England. He reached 
Kingston in 1786, and at once proceeded to his mission-field on the 
Bay of Quinte, making his headquarters at Ernesttown, now Bath. 
He was never married. He remained in this country until 1813, when 
he left Canada, intending to return to his native land. It is said the 
vessel on which he was returning was lost, and no tidings were ever 
heard of the passengers. His real mission-field was Ernesttown and 
Fredericksburgh, but he is said to have made frequent trips in all 
other directions, especially in Prince Edward and those parts of 
Hastings county then settled. He divided Lennox into parishes. He 
was the first minister west of Kingston authorized to solemnize 
marriages, but insisted that all must come to one of his churches for 
that purpose and before 12 o'clock in the day. His churches were St. 
John's, at Bath, built in 1793 and still in use, though several times 
renovated and repaired; and St. Paul's, in Fredericksburgh, built as 
early as 1791. The latter was a log building and was burned on 
Christmas morning, 1816. A third one now occupies its place. His 
record of marriages and baptisms is preserved in Kingston, from which 
the following extracts have been taken, January, 1899.

REV. G. O'KILL STUART'S REGISTER AT ST. JOHNS. 

NOTE. The forgoing completes the first book of register of Rev. John Lang- 
horn. It is written very plainly, the notice of Banns, full certificate of marriage 
signed "John Langhorn, Missionary," and signatures of witnesses in their own 
handwriting, are given with each marriage, making two to each page, written on one 
side of paper only. On the opposite sides of the last three pages are the following 
entries of Rev. G. O'Kill Stuart in 1816. The place of marriage is not given, but 
probably at St. John's Church, Bath, as it is in the Marriage Register of that book.

The new church of St, Paul's, Fredericksburgh, was opened 
and had Divine Service performed in it for the first time 
on Christmas Day, 1791. This is, perhaps, the first

province of Quebec, solely for a Church of England church ; 
excepting one of the Mohawk churches lays claim to a

REV. ROBERT McDOWALL'S REGISTER. 

NOTE. Rev. Robert McDowall was the first regularly sent Presbyte- 
rian Missionary to Upper Canada. He was a native of Saratoga County, 
New York, educated at Williams' College, Schenectady, N. Y., and sent 
by the Synod of the Reformed Dutch Church of Albany as a Mission- 
ary to the U. E. L. refugees of the Bay of Quinte District, numbers of 
whom came from near Albany and points on the Hudson River, and 
were members of that denomination before leaving. He reached 
Kingston early in the spring of 1798, and soon went to Bath and 
Fredericksburgh, and settled in the latter township, where he remained 
until his death in 1841. During the first two years he worked as a 
missionary at large, and then organized congregations at Bath and in 
Fredericksburgh and Ernest Town, three miles north of Bath. He 
became the regular minister of these, and had churches built. He 
continued his regular mission visitations to Kingston and Prince 
Edward County, sometimes going as far west as where London now 
stands. He married probably more persons than any other minister in 
Upper Canada. His register was given to Queen's College, Kingston, 
since his death, by R. J. McDowall, his grandson, now residing in 
Kingston, and is kept in the vault of Queen's. The following are 
extracts from that register. Some pages are so dim from years that it 
is difficult to decipher them. In July, 1898, a centennial was held at 
the McDowall Memorial Church, Sandhurst, Fredericksburgh, where 
he died, and where his remains and those of most members of his 
family lie buried. It was attended by thousands. T. W. C.

NOTE. The names of marriages entered in the regular register end here. There 
are some loose leaves here and there in the book in very pale ink, some of which 
appear to have been entered, but not all. It is difficult to decipher them. Most of 
the entries appear to have been made from slips taken at the time, no doubt, and to 
have been entered without much regularity as regards time and rotation. The 
register is a large book of unruled paper, and there are some hundreds of pages not 
used at all. The register of baptisms begins at the other end of the book and 
appears to have been arranged by townships. Some are not carried out nearly as 
late as there is reason to believe Mr. McDowall continued baptising, or of marrying 
either. In some instances, from the paleness of the ink, or staining of paper, names 
can hardly be deciphered.

MARRIAGE REGISTER OF STEPHEN CONGER, J.P. 



MARRIAGE REGISTER OF STEPHEN CONGER, J.P., 
HALLOWELL. 

NOTE. Stephen Conger, Justice of the Peace, of Hallow ell, Prince Edward 
County, was a son of David Conger, one of the U. E. L. pioneers of that county. 
David Conger was a native of Pisataqua, New Jersey, where his son Stephen was 
also born. He came first to Upper Canada in 1786, selected and purchased a lot, 
with a mill site, in Hallowell, two miles east of Picton on Bay of Quinte shore. He 
returned and moved his family the next year, bringing with him the irons and 
castings for a saw-mill, which he erected there, being the first mill of the kind built 
in Prince Edward County. A little later he built also a grist mill on the same lot. 
There have been mills there ever since. The Conger Methodist church was built 
on the same lot in 1809, and is now the oldest Methodist church in actual use in the 
Province of Ontario. Stephen was a boy of fourteen years old when his father 
moved, and is said to have driven, or helped to drive, some cows belonging to the 
family all the way from New Jersey, being over a month on the road. He was 
appointed a Justice of the Peace and was sworn into office at Kingston, July 14th, 
1803, being one of the first in Prince Edward County. In the absence in the 
county of any minister legally qualified to marry, he solemnized seventy-six marriages 
between 1803 and 1823, some of whom became the heads of some of the largest and 
most respectable families in the county. During all that time a number of the early 
Methodist ministers regularly travelled there, but they were not legally allowed to 
marry then. Among them were Revs. Darius Dunham, Joseph Jewell, Joseph 
Sawyer, Thomas Madden, Sylvanus Keeler, Henry Ryan, William Case, Thomas 
Whitehead, Isaac B. Smith, John Reynolds, David Gulp, Ezra Adams, Isaac Puffer, 
James Wilson, Franklin Metcalf, and Wyatt Chamberlain. It will be seen these 
well-known ministers often published the parties, but they had to come to the 
Justice of the Peace to be legally married. Mr. Conger was father-in-law of the 
late John P. Roblin, M.P.P., and Registrar for Prince Edward, and father of 
Roger Bates Conger, M.P.P. T. W. CASEY. 

The following is the list from Stephen Conger's record :

SOME DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH BRANT. 113 

SOME DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH BRANT. 

BY J. OJIJATEKHA BRANT-SERO. 

Joseph Brant was married three times : firstly, to Margaret 
daughter of an Oneida Chief ; secondly, to Susanna, sister of Margaret ; 
thirdly, to Catharine, said to have been the daughter of Colonel Croghan 
by an Indian wife. (See Drake's History and Biography of Joseph 
Brant.) The eldest child of the first union was Isaac; the second 
child was Christina. Of the second marriage there was no issue. 
Of the third marriage seven children were born. 

John Brant is the most notable of the sons of Joseph. He occupied 
many creditable positions with the N. E. Company ; was Superintendent 
of the Six Nation Indians ; and he was finally elected a member of 
parliament for Haldimand. Unfortunately, in 1832, he died from 
cholera. 

The object in view in preparing this paper is to trace that branch 
of the Brant family tree which seems to have almost disappeared from 
local histories. Probably this is owing to the fact that Isaac had a 
very unenviable reputation, he having quarrelled with his father and 
received a scalp wound at Dundurn Park, then known to the Indians 
as Bihserihneh. Many have maintained that Isaac was killed outright, 
but, as a matter of fact, he died in the vicinity of Brantford, in the 
year 1795. He was born about the year 1762, in New York State, at 
Canajoharic Castle, and was educated in the neighborhood, probably at 
Fort Hunter, where Dr. Stewart opened a school in the year 1771. 
His education, however, was said to have been completed at Niagara. 
After the Revolutionary War he married Mary Hill, (Athahondis'on, a 
Mohawk), whose brother was John Hill (Chief Sadekariwadeh, of the 
Turtle gens). Her mother's name was Esther, (Dekahondahgweh). 
Isaac's widow died about the year 1825. The writer's grandmother 
distinctly remembers seeing her at her house near the old Mohawk 
church. 

Two girls were born of this marriage, named Ellen and Margaret. 
Mention is made among some correspondence which has come to hand 
of two " lovely children of Isaac's " at the house of Brant, in Burling- 
ton, indicating that Isaac did not marry early, since he was over 
thirty years of age at the time of his death, in 1795. Both girls were 
born in the vicinity of Brantford. They were fairly well educated. 

Ellen, the eldest, married, about the time of her grandfather's death 
at Burlington Beach, Joseph Lotteridge, a half-breed, whose Dutch and 



114 ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

U. E. Loyalist descent is traced to the Mohawk Valley. His mother 
was a Mohawk woman, named O'Weanogan. Joseph Lotteridge died 
in 1854. Five children were born of this union, namely, Mary (living), 
Margaret (deceased), Esther (living), Catharine (deceased), and Isaac 
(living). 

Margaret, the second child of Isaac Brant, was married to Jacob 
Lewis, (Dakerhidontyeh). One boy was born who survived his parents- 
He died when quite young. Of Ellen's children, Mary was born on 
March 21st, 1817,* on the Waterhouse farm, on the north banks of the 
Grand River, near Brantford. She is still living. She was married 
three times : first, to Daniel Doxtater, a Mohawk ; the second time to 
Samson Hess, also a Mohawk ; and the third time to Rev. Abram 
Sickle, an Oneida. Of this last marriage there was no issue. Of the 
first marriage seven children were born, of whom but one is living, 
Chief Daniel Doxtater, born October 7th, 1837. He married Zeby 
Carpenter, now deceased. Ten children were born of this union, of 
whom four are now living, Daniel, Julia, Job, and Mary. Daniel 
married Susan Green, and had six children. Julia, married to Uriah 
Martin, has issue, three children ; Job, married to Lydia (Squire) Hill, 
had also three children. Mary is unmarried. 

HESS FAMILY. Of the second marriage, John, Enoch, and William 
are living. John married first, Mary Hill Jacket, daughter Chief 
David Hill Jacket and Eva, issue Samson ; second, married Christina 
Hill Jacket, and has issue five children. One girl, named Ellen, is 
married to David Herkimer (Objiwa). Enoch, married to Mary 
Magdelene George ; had no issue. William, married September 24th., 
1876, to Sarah Crawford, has issue, one girl, Nellie, living, unmarried. 
Of the third marriage, no issue. The marriage of Rev. Abram Sickle 
(Oneida), from the Thames River, took place at the Six Nation Reserve 
on March 13th, 1873. Rev. A Sickle was a Methodist, and devoted his 
whole life to christianizing his people. Moving back to his Reserve 
the year following his marriage to Mary Hess, he remained at his post 
until the fatal accident occurred in London, when he fell backwards 
and broke his neck, dying instantly, on the 23rd of May, 1884. His 
widow returned to her former home, and is now among those 
present here. 

The second daughter of Ellen Lotteridge, the grand-daughter of 
Isaac Brant, was born in May, 1819. Her name was Margaret. She 
was married to John Sawyer. She died a few years ago, leaving a 
large family of ten children, consisting of Esther, John, Alexander, 
Peter, Jacob, Levi, Dan, Sarah, Mary, and Isachar. Most of these, or 

*Datedoutful.

all of them, are married and have children. Esther Lotteridge, third 
child, was born March 20th, 1821, on the site of the city of Brantford. 
She was baptised at the Old Mohawk church and received her 
education at the Mohawk Institute, which was established in the 
year 1822. The same year the Methodist Mission began its work 
on the Grand River. 

Esther was married, first to Peter Powless, a Mohawk. Lydia and 
Peter were born of this union. Both are living. Lydia was born June 
19th, 1842 ; married to Cornelius Cornelius, an Oiieida. About sixteen 
children were born to Lydia. Nine daughters are living. Jemima, 
Mary, Esther, and Susanna are married and have large families. 
Daughters of Jemima and Esther are married and have several 
children. Five living generations are represented in this branch of 
the Brant family. Peter, second child and only son of Esther (living), 
was born on the Grand River at Newport, which was formerly called 
Burch's Landing, in the days of the Grand River Navigation Company, 
on June 10th, 1844. He is at present the hereditary Chief, bearing 
the name of Shadekariwade, and speaker in the Council for the Three 
Brothers. He is married to Catharine Henhawk. and has a large 
family, most of them boys. Elizabeth, born 1872, is the widow of a 
Tuscarora Indian from Lewiston, New York State, and she has two 
children. 

The second marriage of Esther was to an Oneida Chief, the Rev. 
Thomas Funn. In his day he was speaker in the Council for the Four 
Brothers. He manifested great interest in the general welfare of the 
Six Nation people, devoted his time and energies in the Council and at 
religious gatherings. For many years before his death he occupied the 
Methodist pulpit, being, it is generally claimed, an eloquent speaker. 
The Wesleyan Methodists ordained him a minister of the Gospel in the 
year 1853. At the same time a call was extended to him from the Oneida 
Reserve, but he refused to accept it, thinking, no doubt, that the Six 
Nations had a prior claim upon his labors. He died in 1856 after a 
few days illness of typhoid fever. Seven children were born of this 
marriage, of whom Ellen, Elizabeth, and Catharine are living. They 
are all married, and have issue. 

Ellen, the first child of the second marriage, was born August 24th, 
1848, and married in the year 1864, on the 14th of February to Tanish, 
or Denis Shero or Sero, son of John and Dorothy Sero, Bay of Quinte 
Mohawks, who had left their former home, and travelled by ox-team, 
passing through York on the way. John lived to the age of 77. His 
widow, who died three years ago, is said to have been born in the 
winter of 1779. 



116 ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

The American war separated them for a time after their marriage, 
for Denis joined the soldiers of the North and was stationed at Georgia. 
He returned to Canada in the fall of 1865. On the 10th of June, 1867, 
John was born. Juliana was born on June 16th, 1869. She died in 
infancy. Albert was born July 15th, 1875. Denis Sero died Septem- 
ber 3rd, 1876, and was buried at the White School House, where all 
his children were baptized. His widow, Ellen, is married to Peter 
Martin, son of Alexander and Eva (deceased). Two girls and one boy, 
the issue of this second marriage, are living. The eldest girl, Agnes 
Adeline, married Peter Miller, son of Josiah, in 1898. 

John, the first child of Ellen and Denis, was born about two miles 
from the south banks of the Grand River, in a log house, which is still 
there. He was baptized at the Methodist church, commonly known 
as the White School House. While he was in England, circumstances 
arose in which it was necessary he should produce a baptismal certifi- 
cate. This was impossible at the time. Under the guidance and 
tutorship of the Rev. Henry Henn, M.A., Fellow of Cambridge Univer- 
sity, England, it was decided that the only way out of the difficulty 
was to have another baptism, the Rev. Henry Henn, and Rev. Chas. 
Priff to be godfathers, on condition that the name of " Brant " be taken 
as part of the name, and to be hyphened with that of Sero. Accord- 
ingly, in the month of June John was re-christened at St. Paul's 
(Church of England), Preston, Lancashire, England, as "John Ojijatekha 
Brant." He married Frances Baynes Kirby, widow of the Rev. H. W. 
Kirby, rector Field Broughton, Grange-over- Sands, Lancashire. 

Albert, the second son of Ellen, is still unmarried. Elizabeth, 
the second daughter of Esther and Thomas Funn, is married to Samson 
Newhouse, Mohawk. She has five children, two girls and three boys, 
none of whom are married. 

Catharine, the third daughter, married Jacob Smith, an Oneida. 

Of this marriage five children are living, namely, Albert, Jonas, 
Emy, Mary Jane, and Cissy. Albert is married and has three children. 
Emy married Martin in 1896. 

Peter Schyler, an Oneida, was the third husband of Esther. Several 
children were born of this union, but they all died in infancy. In 
1869, on Sept. 2nd, Esther was married for the fourth time. This 
husband was a Mohawk named Isaac Claus. There was no issue of 
this union. Isaac Claus died October 19th, 1893. His widow survives ; 
she is seventy-seven years of age, and grandmother of the writer. 

Catharine, or Katy, the fifth child of Ellen and Joseph Lotteridge, 
was born in 1829. She married William Canada Maricles, a Bay of

Quinte Mohawk, who is now living. Catharine died, July 25th, 1892, 
leaving three sons. She had one daughter, who died previous to her 
mother, and who was married to David Williams. The three sons are 
living, namely, William Henry, married to Mary Hill ; Samuel Daniel, 
married to Hannah Hill Jacket ; and John Peter, married to Mary Ann 
Gonwaninow Hill. All have issue. 

Isaac, the only son living, was born 1827. Married three times : 

first to Lydia Powless, issue ; second, to Catherine Ducan ; third, 

to Garlow. One daughter and one son are living, and married. 

Both have large families.

STE. MARIE. 

By the 6th article of the Treaty of Ghent it is provided: the 
boundary line separating His Majesty's Dominions from the United 
States shall be the middle of the River Cataraqui (or Iroquois). 

When the survey was undertaken to decide the place of the above 
boundary- line, several important questions arose not contemplated in 
the Treaty ; among which was that as the middle of the River is a line 
equidistant from both banks of the River, this line would often 
intersect islands, which would give a boundary line on land, under 
circumstances very inconvenient to each Power, especially on civil and 
criminal processes, illicit trade, &c., &c. It was therefore determined 
that to whatever power the greater part of intersected island should 
belong, that power should have the whole of the Island, and thus avoid 
all of the above evils. This decision was approved and confirmed by the 
Foreign Office and at Washington. It may be said, by following the 
middle of the greatest navigable channel, a boundary line could have 
been readily established ; but on my great surveys of this Continent to 
the Latitude of 60 north, I examined almost all the great rivers from 
their sources to the eastern seas or Pacific ocean, and found them all 
obeying the same physical law with the great rivers in Europe, and in 
a bolder manner. On this Continent, the deep channel for 5 miles out 
of 6 miles will be found on the North side of the River, After the 
survey was finished this truth was forced on the United States 
Commissioner, and he insisted on the middle of the deep channel for 



118 ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

the boundary line, but was kept to the letter of the Treaty. The 
Treaty of 1783 gave peace to the United States, but their treasuries 
were exhausted. To raise money the State of New York sold to the 
Holland Company large tracts of land, among which were all the 
islands in the River Cataraqui from St. Regis to Lake Ontario, which, 
by the boundary to be drawn, should belong to the State of New York. 

The several naval commanders who had been in charge of Kingston 
Harbor, the vessels on the lakes, &c., had sent to the Admiralty from 
time to time their opinions on the necessity of securing to Great 
Britain certain islands for the protection of the Navy, &c., at Kingston, 
&c. These were transmitted to the Foreign Office and forwarded to 
the British Commissioners, and every place pointed out by the 
Admiralty for the safety of our Navy, &c., was obtained ; the 
principal of which was Grande Isle, opposite to Kingston. By the 
Treaty this Island belonged to the United States and on account of the 
Holland Company was considered hopeless; but at the time the division 
of the Islands took place, certain peculiar circumstances happened, 
which enabled the British Commissioners to exchange Grande Isle 
above the Niagara Falls for Grand Isle opposite Kingston, on condition 
of indemnifying the Holland Company by giving up British Isles to 
make up 13,359J acres the difference in area between the two islands. 
This will account for several islands in the River Cataraqui being placed 
on the side of the United States. 

As the obtaining Grande Isle near Kingston was strongly recom- 
mended by the Admiralty, I paid more than common attention to the 
depth of water along its shores, and found the South side to be so shoaly 
that in many places at 100 yards from the shore there was only 4 or 5 
feet of water. In order to have the free use of this side of the Island 
it was proposed and agreed that the boundary line should be 100 yards 
from the shores of all islands, and if the space between the opposite 
shores was less than 200 yards then the boundary line should be the 
middle between the two shores, and the distance of 100 yards also 
gives free space for the construction of Rafts, &c., to both nations. 

The field books and the books of the results of the triangles will 
show with what careful accuracy the whole survey was performed. 

The field book containing the notes of the survey of part of the 
East end of Lake Ontario, the Niagara River, &c., &c., is not now sent, 
as it is not half full, and can contain the field notes of the West end of 
Lake Erie, &c., &c., and will be forwarded with the second section. A 
book of two quires, containing the astronomical observations for 
Latitude, Longitude, &c., &c., is in the same state, and may probably

contain all the observations made on the survey. The field notes, &c., 
&c., of the United States Astronomer and surveyor and party are 
forwarded in original as delivered by me. They made very few 
observations for Latitude, Longitude, &c., &c., and none were exchanged. 
The areas of the islands ordered to be calculated by the Commissioners 
in the River Cataraqui are as follows : Cornwall Island contains 1972 
acres; Barnhart's Island, 1716 acres; Lower Long Sault Island, 1969 
acres ; Upper Long Sault Island 1859 acres ; Eastern Cat Isle, 90 acres; 
Crysler's Isle, 54 acres ; Goose Neck Island, 414 acres ; 1st Isle, No. 1, 
8 acres; and 2nd Isle, No. 2, 45 acres; Hanes's Island, 138 acres;

6 and 7 articles of the Treaty of Ghent. 

MONTREAL, October 24th, 1836. 
THE HONORABLE JOHN MACAULY, 

SIR, The maps of the boundary line between His Majesty's 
Dominions and the United States now sent to you on 38 sheets of 
antiquarian paper, and numbered from 27 to 64 inclusive. No map of 
Lake Erie could be procured, the rough survey of this lake by Captain 
Owen not being deemed sufficiently accurate to be a national document. 
Numbers 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 32 contain the survey of the west end 
of the Lake Erie, which survey, on account of the pestilential Marshes, 
&c., took part of three years to complete. It was thought a matter of 
importance to acquire, if possible, a correct knowledge of the extent 
and nature of the Marshes, Fens, &c., &c., that border the west end of 
Lake Erie, and whether it could be possible to drain them into the 
lake. Captain Douglas, of the United States Engineers, and Professor 
of Mathematics at West Point, was for that year (1819) the Astronomer 
and Surveyor on the part of the United States, and we agreed, each of 
us, to examine the sides of survey, and give the best estimation we 
could form without any actual survey being made. Captain Douglas 

* This word is said to be a corruption of granite stone. 



120 ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

computed the South- West side of Lake Erie, including the Marshes and 
Fens of the Sandusky and Maumee Rivers, to contain about 800 square 
miles of apparently incurable Marsh and Fen. On the north-east side, 
including the round 0, a very extensive Marsh, Point Pie', and the 
Island, I computed 120 square miles, on the British side of the Lake, 
all apparently incurable. Between the round O and the Marshes and 
Fens to Point Pie', the only barrier to the Lake, was generally a narrow 
bar of sand, seldom one foot above the level of the Lake, and in many 
places cut through by the waters of the marshes, etc. Point Pie 
Island contains about 27 square miles of area, of which 24 square Miles 
.are Marsh, and the Island is surrounded almost everywhere by a 
narrow Low Bank of sand or Earth and Stones. When Lake Erie is 
high the country appears healthy, but when the water of the Lake is 
lowering (as in 1819) the Marshes also lower, and each fall of an inch 
leaves from 40 to 100 yards dry, and the rich, oily, dense, vegetable 
substances with myriads of animalcule become in a state of dissolu- 
tion, and produce a most disgusting smell. Mr. Commissioner Ogilvie, 
and 2 men, fell victims to the lake Fever, and the rest of us barely 
escaped with our lives. 

Numbers 33, 34 and 35 contain the survey of the Detroit River. 
Had the middle of the River been followed the United States would 
have been limited to 100 yards eastward of Grosse Isle ; but the part 
of the 6th article relative to the Detroit River and upwards is so 
loosely worded, the United States Commissioner claimed the middle of 
the channel between Isle du Bois Blanc and Amherstburg as the only 
deep channel for ships and Steam Boats. This being refused he next 
claimed Fox and Stoney Isles for protecting their navigation. This 
claim was also most strenuously resisted, but Lord Castlereagh ordered 
them to be given up. 

Numbers 36 to 48 inclusive contain the survey of Lake St. Clair 
and its channels. The sides of Lake St. Clair were surveyed by means 
of pickets placed a distance from the shore ; the angles at these pickets 
were taken by a Sextant. The old ship channel through which the 
boundary line passes was formerly the only navigable channel for 
vessels drawing more than five feet of water. This channel, as well as 
almost all the channels, has now a shoal bar at its sortie, and the 
present navigable channel is the most western. All the Bars at the 
discharge of the channels into the Lake appear to be of decomposed 
wood, apparently brought down from Lake Huron, or the R. St. Clair, 
and from extensive shoals on the north-east end of the Lake. 

Numbers 49, 50, 51 are the Maps of the River St. Clair to its head 
from Lake Huron. No. 52 is a general map of Lake Huron so 



REMARKS ON THE MAPS FROM ST. REGIS TO SAULT STE. MARIE. 121 

far as its shores could be known with accuracy. For most of 
the west side I am indebted to Captain Bayfield, who at that 
time was also on the survey to Lake Huron. The Trigonometri- 
cal Survey having determined the position of the shores and islands of 
the upper end of Lake Huron, it became necessary to know to which 
nation the 3 northern Manito Islands belonged. To the east shore a 
survey could be carried, but to the west shore, as the mainland could 
not be seen, a survey could not be carried but by means of tedious and 
expensive operations. It was therefore determined by the Board that 
the distance between the shores and the islands should be determined 
by astronomical observations, and as the United States had no practical 
astronomer, I had to perform it alone. The result of the observations 
is the boundary line as laid down on the general map of Lake Huron 
(number 53). 

Numbers o3 to 64, inclusive, contain the survey of the north-east 
end of Lake Huron, with the boundary line which finishes the 6th 
article of the Treaty of Ghent. The East Neebish Channel is the only 
one that has sufficient depth of water for ship navigation. The middle 
Neebish is the common channel for all lesser craft and has the shortest 
distance to the Falls of Ste. Maries. The West Neebish is shoal and 
circuitous. The middle of the middle Neebish Channel was offered as 
the boundary line, but the United States Commissioner demanded the 
middle of the east channel which was positively refused, and this 
refusal confirmed by Mr. Canning. The consequence was, the Blue 
Line became the Limit of the United States, and the Red Line that of 
Great Britain, until further negotiations determined the boundary line 
to the Falls of Ste. Maries, in the meantime each nation making use of 
all the Channels. With these Maps I have not forwarded the field 
notes, &c., &c., as I am at a loss to know how to arrange them so as to 
be of the most use, and easy of inspection. From the sufferings of the 
Parties from fever, &c., the west end of Lake Erie was surveyed at 
different times as health permitted, and L. St. Clair after Lake Huron 
from the same cause. To follow the order of time the Survey would 
sometimes be in one place and sometimes in another. To me it appears 
the best method will be to combine the Surveys of different times into 
one survey, and follow the Line of the Country upwards to the head of 
Lake Huron. The termination of the 6th article of the Treaty of 
Ghent, on this, I shall await your decision. 

Very respectfully, 

Your obedient servant, 
THE HON. JOHN MACAULAY, [Signed] DAVID THOMPSON. 

Surveyor-General of Upper Canada.

SKETCH OF PETER TEEPLE, LOYALIST AND PIONEER, 

1762-1847. 

BY W. B. WATERBURY. 
(Read Before the County of Elgin Historical Society, at St. Thomas, Ont.) 

CAPTAIN PETER TEEPLE was born near Trenton, New Jersey, July 
14th, 1762. Bordentown is believed to be the locality. 

His parents were settlers from Holland in New Jersey, and he was 
the youngest son of a well-to-do and fairly numerous family. He had 
at least three brothers, John, James, and George, all of whom were in 
the Continental Army under George Washington in the war of Inde- 
pendence which raged from 1776 to 1783. About the year 1779, Peter 
was still living at the old home, and then in his 18th year. Being 
possessed of a very handsome horse, he kept it carefully hidden from 
view of the contending armies, rightly fearing it might be confiscated 
for war purposes. One day however, whilst leading it to water, he 
was surprised by the Patriot cavalry, and forced to give it up. He 
afterwards stated that, being at that time unable to speak English (his 
family, as stated before, being Hollanders) he was taken at a great 
disadvantage. The occurrence so angered the boy, who prided himself 
on the possession of so handsome a horse, that he immediately tied up 
a bundle of clothing and started on foot for New York, then occupied 
by the British, which he reached safely, and there joined the British 
cavalry. Having a good education and being naturally bright and 
intelligent, he soon acquired a fluent use of the English language, and 
being of tall and commanding presence, and a good soldier, he rapidly 
rose to the rank of Captain, and was placed in command of a troop 
of cavalry, being a part of the corps known as the "New Jersey 
Volunteers." 

He took part in several notable engagements, and many times had 
an opportunity to forage for supplies for his troop among the sup- 
porters of the Patriot army which had deprived him of. his beloved 
steed. On one occasion while scouting in Virginia, a bullet from the 
rifle of an American sharp-shooter killed the charger upon which he 
was mounted. At the close of the war in 1783, Captain Teeple's 
cavalry troop was disbanded at Halifax, and, owing to his fine 
physique, being six feet four inches in height, he was offered great 
inducements to proceed with the British army to England and accept a 
commission in His Majesty's Life Guards. He declined the offer, and 
later expressed misgivings as to the wisdom of his choice. He then left 




CAPT. PETER TEEPLE, 
U. E. Loyalist - - 1762-1847. 

Captain in the "New Jersey Volunteers" in the Revolutionary 
War. Pioneer of Long Point in 1793. One of the first five Justices 
of the Peace for London District in 1800. Served at the Battle of 
Lundy's Lane in 1814. Died at Centreville, Oxford County, Ont., in 
1847, aged 85. 

The original of this portrait was drawn on the fly-leaf of a book by 
a runaway slave from the United States about 1840.

Halifax, proceeding with a large number of other disbanded soldiers, 
and many refugees, to New Brunswick, where Loyalist settlements had 
been established at Saint John, and at a place called Waterborough, 
situated on Grand Lake about sixty miles up the River Saint John. 
From being a captain of horse, he now became captain of a trading 
vessel plying between Saint John and New York. 

At Saint John he met and married, in 1785, Lydia Mabee, one of 
the five daughters of Frederick Mabee, a prominent Quaker refugee 
from New York, whose father, Simon, a Hollander, and his mother, 
Marie Landrine, a French lady, had settled near Sing Sing in the State 
of New York. 

FREDERICK MABEE was a United Empire Loyalist, whose home had, 
at the British evacuation of New York, been confiscated, and himself 
and family subjected to indignity by many of his formerly kind 
neighbors, because he declined to swear allegiance to the new Republic, 
holding, as he no doubt conscientiously did, that the grievances of the 
colonists should be settled by constitutional means rather than by the 
sword. 

Having heard of the wonderful fertility and natural advantages of 
the Long Point (or as it was first called, the Turkey Point) country in 
Upper Canada from his cousin Peter Secord, a U.E. Loyalist who had 
accompanied him to Saint John from New York, and who, being an 
old hunter, had already penetrated the wilds of Upper Canada with 
one George Ramsay, an Englishman, on a hunting and exploring trip, 
he resolved to form a small colonization party to open a permanent 
settlement at Turkey Point. Gathering many of his relatives together, 
including his son-in-law Captain Teeple, the " Mabee party," as they 
were afterwards called, set out in the fall of 1792, but they wintered 
at Quebec, and did not reach Turkey Point until some time in 1793. 

They brought some household goods, drove several cows, rode 
horses, and employed an Indian guide to pilot the way through 
the wilderness. The men drove the animals along the shore, the 
women came in the boats, going ashore at night to camp. During 
the journey through the wilds they sustained themselves largely on 
cornmeal, and milk from the cows. The party consisted of Frederick 
Mabee and wife Lavinia (born Pellum, or Pelham) ; Oliver Mabee, 
their eldest son, aged about 19; Simon, aged 17; Pellum, the youngest 
son, aged about 5 ; three single daughters, Polly, Betsy, and Sally ; and 
two married daughters, Nancy, with her husband John Stone, and 
Lydia, with her husband Captain Peter Teeple and their three children. 
His cousin, Peter Secord, and Thomas Walsh, also came with the 
" Mabee party." 



124 ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

Frederick Mabee at once erected the first log cabin ever built in the 
new settlement, at the foot of the hill over-looking Turkey Point. 
Their corn was pounded in the stump of a walnut tree, the pestle being 
attached to a " sweep " like the " Old Oaken Bucket." 

One year after the arrival of the party he died of apoplexy, and 
was buried in a hollowed-out walnut log coffin. He was the first white 
man buried in the new settlement, and a large boulder marks his tomb 
near Turkey Point. His widow subsequently married Lieut. Wm. B. 
Hilton, a New York Loyalist of the " King's American Dragoons," but 
he died three years after the marriage. Large numbers of other 
Loyalists poured into the settlement shortly after, but the "Mabee 
party " came in advance of the rest, and became " squatters " until the 
lands were apportioned by the Crown to all the Loyalists. Polly and 
Sally Mabee, two daughters who came to Turkey Point single, married 
respectively Captain David Secord, and Silas Montross, U.E. Loyalists. 
The former was a miller at Niagara ; the latter lived at Turkey Point. 
The Mabee, Teeple, Secord, Montross, and Stone families became 
prominent factors in the early days of the settlement, but now their 
descendants are very widely scattered. 

More than a hundred years have come and gone since Frederick 
Mabee and his sons and sons-in-law made the acquaintance of the wild, 
painted, and befeathered savages of the north shore of Lake Erie ; 
and where they were surprised and startled by the bedlam of dis- 
cordant sounds, which daily rent the air, from the throats of the 
myriads of wild turkeys, geese, and duck, as these sturdy pioneers 
staked out their new homes at Turkey Point. To-day their great- 
grandsons are found in the ranks of busy men, scattered all over the 
American continent, and their great-great-grandchildren occupy seats 
in nearly every schoolhouse in the land. In fact, these descendants 
have become so numerous and so widely dispersed that they meet as 
strangers, never dreaming that the old pioneer mother who pounded 
corn in the hollow of a walnut stump on Turkey Point more than a 
hundred years ago was their common maternal ancestor. 

CAPTAIN PETER TEEPLE and his brothers-in-law, Captain David 
Secord and John Stone, were the first young married men that settled 
in Charlotte ville as Turkey Point afterwards came to be officially 
named; and when the settlement was surveyed Peter Teeple was 
granted Lot 8, in the broken front, near Forestville. His wife Lydia 
also was granted 106f acres by the Crown, being part of Lot 9, lake 
front, Charlotte ville. Near by still stands to-day an old tree known 
as the " Aunt Lydia Apple Tree," which yet bears fruit. It was the 



SKETCH OF PETER TEEPLE, LOYALIST AND PIONEER. 125 

favorite apple of Lydia Teeple. There are trees in this orchard 100 
years old, and near the old house is still standing a walnut tree which 
must be very ancient indeed. It measures nearly twelve feet in cir- 
cumference and four feet in diameter. It is an interesting relic in itself 
with its immense spread of branches. 

Peter Teeple was one of the first Justices appointed, having that 
honor conferred upon him by virtue of the first General Commission 
of the Peace for the newly organized " District of London," dated at 
York, now City of Toronto, January 1st, 1800. He was also one of 
the original three, appointed at the same time, to act as Commissioners 
for administering oaths prescribed by law to the officers of the Govern- 
ment of Upper Canada. On the 2nd day of April following, he was 
sworn into office at the house of Lieut. James Munro, at Turkey Point, 
which house is still standing (Jan., 1899) and is now known as " Fort 
Munroe." On 8th April, 1800, the first session of the first Court held 
in that vast new " District of London " was convened at Fort Munroe, 
and Squire Teeple was one of the sitting Justices. His position then 
was about equivalent to that of a Justice of the Court of Common 
Pleas now, and he came to be regarded as a thorough jurist. He left a 
very large law library, and a complete register of the hundreds of 
civil marriages he performed. 

An amusing incident was related by his youngest son, Pellum, in 
connection with one marriage ceremony he performed about 1825. 
The laws or custom of that place required that where no regular 
license had been procured, the ceremony might be performed at some 
public cross-roads, at the hour of midnight, the contracting parties 
appearing in their night-clothes, the justice and one or more others 
acting as witnesses. In company with his son, Pellum, the Squire 
repaired to the spot, a lonely cross-road, on a very dark night. 
Presently two groups approached from opposite directions, one with 
the bride, the other with the groom. Upon meeting, and the two 
principals clad in white robes stepping forward at the hour of twelve, 
they were duly married according to law. Pellum, then a young man 
of sixteen, said it made a lasting and weird impression on his memory. 

But few years had elapsed after the Squire, as he was then called 
by virtue of his legal office, settled at Turkey Point, when the war of 
1812-1815 broke out. He had attained a goodly degree of prosperity, 
and he and his sons donned their swords to defend their new-made 
homes. The settlers formed volunteer companies, and in recognition 
of his previous military rank and experience he was chosen a captain 
of militia, being then about fifty years of age. With his command he 



126 ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

met the invading American troops at Queenston Heights and Lundy's 
Lane. His valuable flour mill was burned during this war by a party 
of American scouts. 

Squire Teeple and his wife were two of the constituent members of 
the old pioneer Baptist church organized at Vittoria by Elder Titus 
Finch in 1804; and when the acre of land was purchased for 
2. 10. 0. " New York Currency " from Deacon Oliver Mabee in 1807 
upon which to erect a " meeting house," Mr. Teeple became one of the 
first trustees, the other being one Lawrence Johnson. The church was 
a commodious edifice for those times, and superseded the old log 
structure, and it was furnished with a three-sided gallery. The young 
people who used to attend the singing schools in that old meeting 
house have long since passed away, but they were full of rugged piety 
and simple faith. 

In January, 1851, a new church was built near the same site, and 
among the records of the members of the construction committee we 
find the now locally historic names of Mabee, Teeple, Young, and 
Ryerse, sons of the original pioneers. A few years before his death in 
1847, a pen-and-ink portrait of the Squire was obtained under peculiar 
circumstances. There came in that community (Centreville, Oxford 
Co., Ont.) a quadroon who had been a slave in the United States, and 
who had a talent for drawing, which his mistress allowed him to 
cultivate, and even procured for him some instruction in the art. The 
Squire's son, Pellum Cartwright Teeple, learning this, brought the 
escaped slave home one day and got him to execute a portrait of his 
father. It was drawn upon the fly-leaf of a book, and he was 
portrayed sitting with Pellum's child, Charles, an infant, on his lap. 
The original is still in the possession of the grandson Charles, who 
lives at Marengo, Illinois, and the writer is happily possessed of a 
photographic copy. The drawing is quaint but well executed, and is 
said by those who remember the old Squire to be a faithful likeness, 
the only exception taken being that the chin is too pointed. He 
continued to reside not far from Long Point (Centreville, Oxford Co.) 
during the remaining years of his life, and was finally laid to rest in 
the old Baptist cemetery near there by his son Pellum. He was 
methodical, dignified in bearing, of a commanding aspect, a strong 
advocate of temperance, and was erect and soldierly to the last. 

His wife Lydia was a very worthy woman, and they both lived 
long, she dying in 1845 at the age of 75, and he in 1847, aged 85. It 
is related of her that whenever she lost her temper and spoke sharply 
to anyone she would soon after be found alone, pacing to and fro with

clasped hands murmuring to herself for a time, " Lord have mercy, 
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy ! " 

Squire Teeple had thirteen children, of whom nine were sons, 
namely, William Bullard, Luke, Edward Manning, Frederick, Stephen 
Henry, Oliver Mabee, Lemuel Covel, Simon Peter, and Pellum Cart- 
wright ; and four daughters, namely, Louvina, Susannah, Mary, and 
Phebe. Some of these children met with stirring adventures during 
the war of 1812-15, and the Canadian Rebellion of 1837. A few 
details of these will be given here as follows : 

WILLIAM B., the eldest son, was born 18th January, 1788, and was, 
like his father, and enormously big man, and a captain of Provincial 
Militia at the battle of Lundy's Lane. At the latter engagement he 
had as an orderly a French Canadian of rather small stature who used 
to say to his towering commanding officer, " Capt. Teeple, you are a 
very big man, and when the fighting gets hot I am going to get behind 
you." In actual warfare, however, the little French Canadian exposed 
himself so fearlessly that he was mortally wounded early in the battle. 

A portion of the scarlet uniform worn by Capt. W. B. Teeple in 
that engagement, made up in the form of the quaint " knitting 
sheaths " of the period, is still in the possession of the writer, one of 
his grandsons. On the 4th January, 1818, he was married to Jemima 
Leek at Malahide by Mahlon Burwell, J.P., and soon after settled on 
200 acres of land, being Lot 1, Con. 8, in the Township of Malahide 
County of Elgin, the land being a grant from the Crown for military 
services rendered. 

He died on the 8th April, 1857, leaving a goodly estate. His 
children in order of birth were Jared Topping, Susan Celestia, James 
Jackson, Symantha J., Temperance Ursula, Lydia Ann, Stephen 
William, and Sarah. Of these Lydia Ann was married to James F. 
Waterbury, also of the U. E. L. descent, on the 22nd of June, 1852, by 
Rev. Caleb Burdick at Malahide. At this date, 1899, she resides at 
Cambridgeport, Mass., and is the mother of the writer of these annals 

LUKE TEEPLE, second son of Capt. Peter Teeple, born 12th 
September, 1791, went to New Jersey on a visit to an uncle just before 
the war of 1812 broke out, and he was ordered to take the oath of 
allegiance or quit the country. His uncle had a mail route from New 
York to some point in New Jersey, believed to be Bordentown, and he 
put young Luke on this route thinking that while thus employed he 
would not be molested. He was arrested, however, in the following 
February, and cast into prison with a about a hundred other British 
sympathizers. These Loyalist political prisoners were sorely tempted 
9 



128 ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

to desert their first love and join the American forces. One by one 
they weakened until only fifteen remained, Luke being one of the 
faithful few. At the close of the war they were liberated, and the 
uncle, although a patriotic American, gave Luke a present in token of 
admiration of his pluck and endurance. When he returned to Canada 
he, on the 26th of December, 1816, married Nancy, second daughter of 
Elder Titus Finch, already referred to, and settled at Vittoria, near 
Simcoe, purchasing the two-story frame house built by Caleb Wood 
(also a " Jerseyite " Loyalist as the New Jersey refugees were called in 
those days) and which house still stands, dark and windowless and 
vacant, in front of the Baptist burying ground, fit companion to the 
weather-beaten, mossy old grave stones which mark the back-ground. 

On the flat opposite this house he built a tannery which was 
operated by his son Alexander, after his death in 1849. 

He had seven sons Alexander, Jerome, Albert Gallatin, Thermos, 
Lysander, Titus Ridley, and Peter Latimer; and four daughters 
Mabro, Mobra, Clementine, and Almira. Alexander was accidentally 
crushed to death in 1867 while excavating a large boulder on his 
property. 

PELLUM CARTWRIGHT (originally spelled Pelham), thirteenth and 
youngest child, and ninth son of Peter Teeple, was born 28th November, 
1809, and was a participator in the Upper Canadian Rebellion of 1837, 
or " The Patriot War," as it was then often called. He was the leader 
of a band of young Canadians opposed to the long misgovernment of 
the country by an irresponsible body of men known as " The Family 
Compact," who ignored the statutes passed by the parliamentary 
representatives of the people, and frustrated their will ; and when it 
was determined to fight, he was chosen a captain ; but on the flight to 
the United States of the two principal leaders, William Lyon Mackenzie 
and Hon. John Rolph, all those who had been leaders under them were 
compelled to follow them into exile or forfeit their lives. 

Pellum, on attempting to flee, fell in with a party of soldiers who 
made him their prisoner. The story of his capture and escape is thus 
told by his nephew, Luke, son of Simon Peter Teeple, who heard it 
from his own lips : 

" The price set upon his head by the Canadian Government was 
1 $600 dead or alive.' He was determined to leave Canada, and was 
then on his way to the western frontier line. He was riding a horse, 
and had reached a point some seven or eight miles westerly from 
London, Ont., on the road leading from that city along the southern 
side of the River Thames. His brother, Edward Manning Teeple, 



SKETCH OF PETER TEEPLE, PIONEER AND LOYALIST. 129 

lived on this road some two or three miles from London, and he was 
making for his house. On turning a bend in the road he came in full 
view of a sergeant and six men advancing towards him. He could 
neither retreat nor conceal himself, so he rode steadily on and met 
them. The sergeant halted him and plied him with questions ; and as 
his answers were unsatisfactory he was taken in charge, faced about, 
and obliged to go with them towards London. They dismounted him, 
and the sergeant rode the horse. Plodding along for some time, dark- 
ness overtook them before they reached the city. They stopped at a 
tavern and the soldiers ordered a meal, which was at once prepared. 
They then asked him to come and eat with them, but he assured them 
he was not hungry, and they left their arms in the bar-room and went 
into the next room and sat down to eat. He also went with them into 
the same room, and asked the waitress for a drink of water. He was 
on the side of the table next to the outside door, and as the girl gave 
him the drink of water she flung this door wide open. In an instant 
he was through it and running for the woods. The men sprang for 
their arms, and came rushing out, firing after him. He could hear the 
orders given to surround the cluster of tavern buildings, and see lights 
moving, but he made good his escape into the adjoining forest. There 
was snow on the ground and running was difficult, yet for the fear of 
being overtaken he kept it up until almost exhausted. Taking what 
he supposed to be a course between the public road and the river, he 
at length came upon the latter, but he did not know whether above or 
below his starting point. Going down to the water, which was frozen 
over, he followed along until he espied an airhole ; into this he threw a 
stick to see which way the water ran, then going down the stream, he 
finally came upon a house. By this time he was excessively fatigued, 
and very, very hungry from his long fast. He went up and knocked 
at the door, and a man appeared and began talking with him. He had 
no means of ascertaining whether this man was a * Patriot ' or not, so 
he feigned himself an urgent despatch-bearer of important official 
papers which must be delivered in London with utmost haste ; he said 
he had given out in travelling, and insisted upon the man's acceptance 
of and conveyance of them to London forthwith, as he was utterly 
unable to go on himself. The man demurred ; so, after an earnest dis- 
cussion Pellum said, ' Well, if I could rest a few minutes and get some 
food to eat, I might try to go on.' He then heard the man's wife 
getting up, and she protested that her husband could not go, but said 
she would get Pellum something to eat at once, which she did. While 
eating he became satisfied they were ' Patriots,' and revealed his true 



130 ONTARIO HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

position. The man then said they could not keep him there, but that 
they would see that he was hidden and fed at a neighbor's over the 
hilL Pellum went with him to the neighbor's and was concealed there 
for a time. If there was any likelihood of capture one of the children 
at the first house was to come over the hill and notify him. He was 
alarmed one day by seeing one of the children come running over the 
hill; but it proved to be only a neighborly call. After a few days had 
passed, and he thought search for him had ceased, he worked his way 
through the woods at night up to his brother Edward's, and soon after 
went in the same way to the home of his sister Mary, wife of Andrus 
Davis, at Orwell, Ont. Several weeks were spent in this hazardous trip. 
" Mary and Andrus Davis were known to he staunch Loyalists, and 
there is no account of any attempt to search for him at their place. 
There he was supplied with food for a short time, but the danger of 
recapture was so great that he did not remain all the time in the house 
but kept concealed sometimes in the woods. 

" Still fearing arrest and execution, as some of his compatriots had 
thus suffered, his sister Mary Davis, nephew James Teeple, and sister-in- 
law Jemima Teeple, conducted him secretly in the dead of winter by 
sleigh from Orwell to the Niagara frontier ; and his relative, Rev. 
Samuel Rose, of Lundy's Lane, though a political opponent of the 
Patriots, espoused his cause, and under the pretence of being the 
employer of Pellum, sent him on a message to friends in New York 
State, and at once hired a man to row him across at some point below 
the Falls. 

" He, Pellum, grew very intense when relating this part of the 
narrative, and declared that had anyone ordered the boatman back to 
the Canada shore he would have thrown the man overboard and made 
the attempt to reach the American shore alone. But no difficulty 
arose ; he was safely landed in New York State, and waving a parting 
adieu to this relatives, who sat in their conveyance and witnessed his 
crossing, he began his career in the United States." 

Though the Patriot War thus came to so inglorious an end, it is 
now generally admitted in Canada that had it not been for that 
uprising by which the attention of the British Government was called 
to the intolerable grievances of the Canadians, and a just form of 
responsible government quickly conceded, it would in all probability 
have been many years before the people of Canada would have 
obtained that full measure of home rule which they henceforth 
enjoyed. 

We next hear of Pellum journeying down the Ohio River with a 



SKETCH OF PETER TEEPLE, PIONEER AND LOYALIST. 131 

party intending to go to Texas, but becoming dissatisfied with the 
roistering habits of his companions, he left them and struck across the 
country to a place called Pekin, on the Illinois River. From there he 
eventually went to the city of Rockford, 111., where on the 28th of 
March, 1841, he married Mary A. Gleason. 

His father and mother were now so old they were desirous he 
should come home to Canada and care for them the rest of their days ; 
but he would not do this until a special amnesty was sent him by the 
Canadian Government for his part in the Patriot War. This was 
obtained and forwarded to him, and he journeyed to the old home in 
Oxford County, accompained by his wife, son Charles, and Luke, son 
of Simon Peter Teeple, (who lived with them), in a two-horse buggy, 
there being no railroads, and remained there till the two old pioneers 
were laid away in the churchyard. Later he returned to Illinois and 
settled at Marengo, where he died on the 12th of December, 1878, and 
where his son Charles, above referred to, still resides. Pellum Teeple 
left six sons, viz.: Charles Gleason, Addison Venelle, Levant, Jared, 
Lester, and Frank ; and four daughters Elmina, Elvira, Ruth L., and 
Lydia Mary. 

Of the other descendants of Frederick Mabee and Peter Teeple 
little or nothing of special note is known to the present writer, except 
the dates of their birth and death, and that Oliver Mabee Teeple was 
also a captain at Lundy's Lane ; but it is hoped that the survivors, 
should they read these lines, will, as speedily as possible, contribute 
their quota to these annals before it is too late ; and above all, that 
they will prove worthy successors of those sturdy " Pilgrim Fathers of 
Canada " who, for the sake of what they believed, rightly or wrongly, 
to be their duty, were willing to undertake, not only the perils of war, 
but also the hardships and privations of hewing out for themselves, 
and for their children, in the wild forests of Turkey Point, new homes 
and habitations, destined after one hundred years to become an 
important part of a great and mighty state.

THE CAMERON ROLLS, 1812. 

The MS. from which the following extracts are taken was sold to 
the Ontario Historical Society by a Mr. H. King who could give no 
information respecting how it came into his possession, beyond the 
statement that he " bought it from another man," whose name he did 
not know, some three or four years ago. There can, however, be no 
doubt as to its genuineness. 

It is written on loose sheets of small letter paper bearing the water 
mark 1809, and is mainly in two hands, some changes, corrections, and 
additions having been made by others. 

There is scarcely anything in the sheets themselves to guide one as 
to their chronological arrangement, but the " Rolls " of Capt. Cameron's 
company have been placed in their present order on account of the fact 
that in the first one, George Smallman (No. 12) appears as a private, 
whereas in the second, he is entered as a sergeant, the presumption 
being that he was promoted. D. B.

THE TALBOT SETTLEMENT AND BUFFALO. 139 



THE TALBOT SETTLEMENT AND BUFFALO IN 1816. 

The following letter in the possession of James H. Coyne, of St. 
Thomas, is addressed to his grandfather, "Henry Coyne, Pleasant 
Valley, near Poughkeepsie." In the upper left hand corner are the 
words in red ink, " Buffalo, Oct. 30th," evidently by the postmaster. 
The writer, a brother of Mr. Coyne's wife, had gone to the Talbot 
settlement in what is now the Township of Dunwich in the County of 
Elgin, to take up land, his brother Thomas having preceded him. 
Thomas Gardiner taught the first school in the Talbot settlement, not 
far from Port Talbot. Henry Coyne remained in the State of New 
York for seven years, from 1810 to 1817, before deciding where he 
should settle. In the fall of 1817 he followed his brothers-in-law to 
Canada and purchased a farm on Talbot Road a few miles west of 
Port Talbot, where the settlement of Coyne's corners and the road 
known as the Coyne Road, preserve the name of the pioneer. 

The letter is interesting, not only as showing the hardships of the 
pioneers, but as illustrating the condition of the Buffalo flour market 
in 1816. Only one barrel of flour could be procured in Buffalo, after 
the hardy settler had come 150 miles in an open boat in a tempestuous 
season of the year to procure food for his family. 

" BUFFALO, October 27th, 1816. 

"DEAR BROTHER, I arrived here yesterday after after ten days 
passage from Port Talbot, a place I never would again see were it not 
for my family ; but I was obliged to come here for flour, and I am 
afraid I will not get what I want. I got one barrel and had to give 
$12 for it, but when done it is much cheaper than I can get it at Port 
Talbot. Just before I left home I had 104 Ibs. which cost me $16, 
viz., I had 4J bushels of wheat, cost $9, and a hired man at $12 per 
month was seven days to mill to have it ground, so the expense in all 
was $16. So you may judge what a comfortable place I am in. No ; 
it is the hardest place I ever saw to get the necessaries of life, and I 
believe, according to the number of inhabitants, they have suffered 
more for the want of bread than any other place I ever saw or heard 
of. Many persons here, I believe, have not tasted bread for two 
months, for they had not the grain, and if they had, they could not 
have it ground. 

" I have bargained for 100 acres of land off Colonel Talbot at three 
dollars per acre, and have got a log house 24 by 16 feet not half

finished, and it has cost me about $200, for we cannot get a board 
without fetching them 130 miles, and no stone nor brick to build 
chimneys, nothing but clay. 

" All the money I got for my place would not build such a house as 
I had in P. Talbot. But God only knows whether I will get home 
or not for the lake is so dangerous at this season of the year that I 
dread the journey of going 150 miles in an open boat. It is a great 
undertaking, but I must either do it or my family suffer for want of 
bread, which they have never done as yet. Things were cut off with 
the frost of the 6th of July last, and about the 24th of August there 
was another which killed the buckwheat and corn, that grain is scarce 
and dear ; so there has not been one month this summer but there has 
been frost. I made a mistake in the firm of Townsend & Co., New 
York, in my last letter. It is K. & E. Townsend, No. 123 Pearl St., 
New York ; and get an order on Townsend, Brunson & Co., Lewiston ; 
and send the order in a letter to me to the care of John Warren, 
Merchant, near Fort Erie, Upper Canada. But the money is not to be 
paid to any person but Thos. or Singleton Gardiner, and to have a 
certificate from Mr. Warren that they are the person, for fear of fraud. 
I received your letter of August 4. 

" Remain your affectionate brother, 

" SINGLETON GARDINER. 

" Take all the expense and trouble you are at out of the money 
before you send it, postage of letters and the like. My family were in 
all good health when I left home, and I hope this will find you in the 
same."
