TIMELINE


John Taaffe Irwin and Lucinda "Sandy" (Bradley) (Abbey) Irwin are buried in Zion Cemetery, Port Hope, Northumberland Co., Ontario, Canada. Thanks to Find-A-Grave for making this image available.


Lucinda "Sandy" (Bradley) (Abbey) Irwin.


Ontario was known as: "Upper Canada" from December 26, 1791, to February 10, 1841; "Canada West" from February 10, 1841, to July 1, 1867; and "Ontario" after July 1, 1867.

Isaac Phineas Abbey was born 1796 in Dutchess County, Province of New York.

John Taaffe Irwin was born October 2, 1799, in County Sligo, Ireland.

Lucinda Bradley was born January 16, 1806, in Haldimand Twp., Northumberland Twp., Upper Canada.

On June 23, 1819, Isaac Phineas Abbey petitioned to be recognized as a Settler, and was assigned One Hundred Acres of Land in the North Half of Lot No. Eight, in the Third Concession of Smith Township, Newcastle District, Upper Canada. He stated that he was age 21, was born in the United States, and had been in this Province 20 years. The Final Settlement Date was November 27, 1824.


   

Isaac Phineas Abbey Settler Land Petition dated June 23, 1819.


   

Nathaniel Abner Abbey and Isaac Phineas Abbey sold their 200 Acres of Land in Smith Township dated February 3, 1825.

Isaac Phineas Abbey and Lucinda B. "Sandy" Bradley were married by Banns, August 21, 1825, by Joseph Thompson of the St. John's Anglican Church, Ida, Cavan Twp., Peterborough Co., Upper Canada, in the presence of Mary Abbey and Elizabeth Bradley, in Hope Twp., Durham Co., Upper Canada.


Isaac Phineas Abbey and Lucinda B. "Sandy" Bradley Marriage Record. Married by Banns by Joseph Thompson, St. John's Anglican Church, Ida, Cavan Twp., Peterborough Co., Upper Canada, in the presence of Mary Abbey and Elizabeth Bradley. The first church was built in 1819 by the early settlers under the guidance of the Rev. Joseph Thompson, Church of England Missionary, for the Diocese of Quebec.


St. John’s Anglican Church in Ida quietly recognized the 150th anniversary of the old church building on Sunday, July 2nd. On this day the congregation offered prayers of thanksgiving and serving a special birthday cake to attendees. Although the present church building was completed in the fall of 1866, it was formally opened on January 20th, 1867. The church wardens thought it appropriate to recognize this milestone alongside the 150th birthday of our nation.

A former rector, the Reverend Canon Walter Dyer, recorded much of the church’s history in a portion of the book This Green and Pleasant Land: Chronicles of Cavan Township, published in 1990 by the Millbrook-Cavan Historical Society.

In this historical record, the authors advise that the current brick building is the third to have been constructed on this site, the previous two wooden structures having been destroyed by fire. Rev. T. W. Allen served as the Minster from 1853 until 1905, when his son stepped in to take his place. The cost of the construction in 1866 totalled $8,000. The bell for the tower was delivered by horse and wagon from Toronto; a journey that took most of a week. An addition was added to the church which included the nave, a fine pipe organ and a beautiful stained glass window. Entitled “The Good Shepherd”, the window was donated by a family in memory of Rev. Samuel Armour, who was the second minister to serve this parish. In 1975, an education wing was added thanks to a legacy left by long time parishioner Blanche Moore. A tornado struck the building in 1985, leaving much damage to the church building and destroying the church hall across the road from the church. The proceeds of the insurance claim supplemented by a groundswell of community support allowed a replacement hall to be constructed adjacent to the education wing of the main building.

The church has long been known as “the church on the hill”, serving as a community fixture, and centre for family worship and outreach during these many years. Under the leadership of our current minister, Rev. Peter Mills, we continue to learn to follow Jesus, to make Him known and to serve Him in our community.

Congregation members deliberately chose a quiet celebration of their 150th anniversary because in 2019 they will have the opportunity to celebrate their 200th anniversary as a church community. In 1819, the Rev. Joseph Thompson held services at this site, which places this congregation as one of the oldest worshipping communities in the Diocese of Toronto. The church members are thankful to God for His continued grace in their lives, and for the many men and women of this community who have maintained and continued to maintain this structure which they hope will continue to serve as a centre of worship, teaching, hope and service for many years to come.

The 1827 Census for Hope Twp., Durham Co., Canada West shows Joach Abbey: 3 Men, 5 Women; 3 Boys; 1 Girl. Adults were 16 and over.

Isaac Phineas Abbey died about 1828, in Hope Twp., Durham Co., Upper Canada, at about age 32.

John Taaffe Irwin and Lucinda B. "Sandy" (Bradley) Abbey were married April 15, 1833, in Upper Canada.

The 1851 Canadian Census shows John T. Irwin (age 58) born in Ireland is a Farmer living in a single story log house in Hope Twp., Durham Co., Canada West (Ontario), Canada. Living with him is Lucinda Irwin (age 44) born in Canada. Also living there are five unmarried Irwin children, all born in Canada: Jones H. Irwin (age 18); Edward J. Irwin (age 16); Lucinda Irwin (age 18); Mary D. Irwin (age 7); and Jane Irwin (age 1).   

John Taaffe Irwin died June 29, 1861, in Hope Twp., Durham Co., Canada West, at age 61.

The 1881 Canadian Census shows Lucinda Irwin (age 73) born in Ontario is a widow living in Hope Twp., Durham Co., Ontario, Canada.

The 1891 Canadian Census shows Lucinda Irwin (age 85) born in Ontario is living in Hope Twp., Durham Co., Ontario, Canada.

Lucinda (Bradley) (Abbey) Irwin died July 19, 1896, in Hope Twp., Durham Co., Ontario, Canada, at age 90.


It is surmised that brothers Isaac Abbey (age 27) and Nathaniel (age 28), along with their sister Dorcas Abbey (age 26) and their nephew Clement Neff (age 10) came to Northumberland Co., Ontario, Canada West from New York about 1798. They were some of the pioneering settlers of Durham Co., Ontario, Canada. If this connection is accurate, the Abbey ancestry can be connected through their father Isaac Abbe all the way back to John Abbe, born about 1587 in West Halton, Lincolnshire, England. His son, John Abbe, Jr. of Norwich, Norfolk Co., England emigrated to the United States about 1635 and married Mary Loring in 1635 at Wenham, Essex Co., MA.


Leslie Wilson of Canada has provided the following information.

The 1851 Charles and Oliver were sons of Isaac Abbey & Lucinda Bradley, and grandsons of Nathaniel Abbey   b 1773/74 NY d 1825/26 Hope & Mary____ b Apr 11 1777 d Mar 29 1869.  If you recall, Lucinda Bradley was the daughter of Dorcas Abbey (believed to be a sister of Nathaniel #1 and his brother Isaac) and Oliver Bradley.  Isaac Abbey, brother of the 1773/74 - 1825/26 Nathaniel Abbey, had no surviving issue. Lucinda & her husband Isaac did not help matters because they named the boys, Charles Oliver Abbey and Oliver Nathaniel Abbey!!!

It has been argued that Isaac Abbey, husband of Anne, was the father of Dorcas Abbey-Bradley and Nathaniel Abbey #1. This is possible, but there are many circumstantial factors that argue equally that he was their brother.

1) The Abbey men were not long lived - average age of death (and yes, I removed the ones who were killed in the Civil War to come up with this) - about 50.

2) In the 1790s, very few men over the age of 50, without a housefull of strong sons and daughters between the ages of 14 and 21, took up homesteading in Upper Canada.

3) When Isaac died sometime between March of 1813 and March of 1814, it seems he died intestate - and the property did not pass to Nathaniel Abbey Sr. but rather to David King Bradley and Nathaniel Abbey Jr.  If Nathaniel #1 had been Isaac's son, by British law it would have passed to the son.  But Isaac died - without heirs it seems - so it passed to the two eldest male heirs of Dorcas Abbey-Bradley and Nathaniel Abbey, they being David King Bradley and Nathaniel Abbey Jr.

4) I suspect Isaac died of a disease that entered local lore as the Spotted Plague. It seems to have affected only those in the prime of life - two teenage boys died, everybody else was in their forties and fifties. Most were male.

This was not small pox - that had swept through the area in 1811, the people were familiar with it and of those who remained, most had acquired an immunity to it. This disease was especially virulent - death occurred within 7 days of contact, the victim remained lucid until the end - the body swelled and large purple spots, like bruises, appeared all over the body within 24 hrs of death. Believe it or not, I was able to find a specialist in weird epidemic diseases (he once worked for the Atlanta Centre for Disease Control) who agreed to take on the project of finding out what this plague was.  It only affected those living in Hope Twp, the only exception was a man from Hamilton Twp who had been called to the death bed of one of the victims to notarize the will. I expected Mr Lamb would take at least a month or two to work out a possible cause - he came back in less than 48 hours with the answer - a disease endemic to flying squirrels, carried from them to humans by lice.  The first case appeared in early February - by the end of April, it had petered out. When I asked him how certain he was about this being the cause, his reply was: "99 percent, and you can quote me".

The scenario is that the men were out cutting down trees (this still is winter time work in southern Ontario), the boys found a downed tree with a litter of young flying squirrels, took them home and divided them up amongst their friends.  The lice on the squirrels spread from person to person.

The disease cannot be passed by sputum or touching feces or urine of an infected person or squirrel - it must be introduced into the blood stream by an infected louse, and only a louse, not a flea or mosquito.

Anyway - I digress, although that is the sort of stuff my book is about, not the genealogy.  The genealogies are needed to discover the whys and wherefores of the movements and interactions of this 1793-1813 group of people.

Lucinda (Bradley) (Abbey) Irwin died July 19, 1896 in Hope Twp., Durham Co., Ontario, Canada at age 90.

As I mentioned in our phone conversation, Leigh, many people from Cornwall England came to Durham County in the 1830s, the census records would seem to support that time frame as a date of arrival for William Searle/Sorrell. He first appears on the census in 1836 (i.e. as a property holder - he was undoubtedly here a year or two prior to that time.)  

Nathaniel Abbey lived on Lot 27 Con 2 of Hope Twp from about 1806 until his death in 1825/26 and his family continued to live there until about 1848 or so.  As you can see, only four farms (about a mile) separated the Abbey and Searle/Sorrell homes.

Hello Leigh,

I am a distant cousin, a descendant of Johnathan Bradley nephew (Son of her brother Levi George Bradley) of Lucinda "Sandy" Bradley, who went out west to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I emailed you back in 2009 (I think) with information. I have been doing updates on my extended family files and I would like to provide you with information that I found for Lucinda "Sandy" Bradley descendents that I noticed from your website that you do not have.

I have also found many Find A Grave memorials for her descendents and I have been requesting linkage of them (parent/child) to the respective contributors since I am a member of Find A Grave (Some have not been linked as of yet). Please start with with Charles Oliver Abbey Find A Grave memorial (I maintain it) and you will find them all: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=AB&GSpartial=1&GSbyrel=all&GSst=51&GScntry=4&GSsr=41&GRid=91518134&)


Information for:

(A) Mary "Dorcas" Irwin

Confirmation of interment in Avondale Cemetery in Section: Q; Lot: 298; Sub: 2, Name on record: Dorica Bates (Source: Avondale Cemetery. http://www.stratfordcanada.ca/en/livehere/cemetery.asp).

First husband, Thomas Gamble is found on the 1891 Census of Canada in Galt, Waterloo South, Ontario, Canada married to a Helen LNU Gamble, age 45 (Birth; 10 Mar 1846, Ontario). His occupation is listed as Labourer (Machinist). Also listed is an Ada Gamble, age 9 (Birth: 25 Sept 1882, Ontario). On the 1901 census she is listed as adopted daughter and Thomas, Helen and Ada are still in Galt, Waterloo South, Ontario, Canada. His occupation is listed as Labourer. Of note on Thomas death record his occupation is listed as Machinist. I have not found anything else for Helen and Ada.

Second husband, Richard Bate(s), was a hard person to find information because his surname was spelled with and without the “s.” He was married two times before he married Mary "Dorcas" Irwin. I had six (6) children; four (4) males and two (2) females with his first wife. Wives: Elizabeth LUN Bate(s) (c. 1835-c. 1876) and Ellen Dickson Newson (c. 1830-1897). The informant on his death record was M. McNish, St Thomas, Ontario, Son-In-Law - Matthew McNeish/McNish who married Richards' oldest daughter Mary Elizabeth Bate(s). Poor man lost his wife Mary in April that same year.

Children:

(1) Lucinda Jane “Jennie" Gamble was born in Goderich, Huron, Ontario, Canada.

Lastly, another Find A Grave memorial family grouping is for the Oliver Alva Abbey family and it starts with Oliver, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=122344637. It appears they were just placed up as of Oct thru Dec 2013. I can tell you that this contributor is accurate with her records. I will not be asking for a transfer of any of them from her because I am still waiting for a transfer of my great uncle from her that I requested back in Jul 2013. She is a bit of stickler when it comes to transfers.

Please visit my great grandfather's memorial on Find A Grave: Johnathan Bradley, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=122938173, I have him linked to two other siblings memorials.

Well, I think that is all for now. Except, I have summarized Nathan (Nathaniel) Bradlee/Bradley and “Harriett” Elizabeth Harden/Harnden family information, as well as Oliver Nathan Bradley and Dorcas Abbee/Abbey family information for another distant relative would you like a copy of it?

Best wishes,
