108 1985: George Victor left Okotoks while his parents, George and Elizabeth where still living there. He joined the army and went overseas. (WW1) After being wounded in 1917, he returned to Toronto Ontario and then to Vancouver British Columbia. My mother remembers him being a butcher in Vancouver. While in the butcher shop, he banged his head on a meat hook. This put pressure on his brain as he had a plate in hsi head as a result of the injury in the war. He had to quit butchering.
When helping Gradma, Reitta, paint or wall-paper, he jumped down off a chair, hurting his ankle which wouldn't heal. Gangrene set in resulting in amputation of his leg above the knee. His wife Clara, had been married previously and had a son, John.

117 1985: Lillian worked in the drug store in Okotoks for years. After William's death she went to live with Ernest's mother, Lillian then went to live in Sherwood Park with Eleanor.

126 2. John Wall
Born Dec. 9th, 1825 in Beckwith Twp. John took out a lot on Con. 1 SDR when he came with his family to Grey County in the late 1840s. He never married that we know of. He probably farmed beside his parents and helped clear the land. John is living in Bentinck in 1871 with his mother and Edward Wynn Jr. In 1881 they are still living in Bentinck. In 1891 John and his mother, Anne, are living in Hanover. According to Anglican Church records, Anne died July 1st, 1892 in Hanover. John probably stayed living at that location. We have found no record of John's death. Tracing John and Jane is very difficult because the Hanover Post burned in 1900 burning all the old newspapers. A caretaker at St. George's cemetery, where Moses Wall is buried, burned all the records of internments. He also took off with the bank account "according to a local historian". So we presume that Jane and Edward Wynn, Ann Jane Wynn, and John Wall and his mother, Ann Wall, are buried in a family plot at St. George's cemetery. The marker only tells us about Moses Wall who died on January 17th, 1864. These deaths were never registered. The only other record we have found of John is where he voted for a public school trustee in 1881. In local church records we did find Anne (Merritt) Wall's death recorded.

128 3. James Wall
Born May 4, 1829 in Beckwith Twp and died January 8, 1909. James came to Grey County with his parents and siblings and took out Lot 22 on Con. 1 SDR. Shortly after that he moved to Sydenham Twp. The 1851 Census shows him living there with his sister Mary Ann. He is listed as being a blacksmith. He married Caroline (Lana) Frank in that location and their descendants were two daughters, Mary Ann Wall (b.1853-d. January 28, 1928), who, in 1872, married Alfonzo Berdan (b.1853-d.1921) and Catherine Matilda Wall (b.1856-d. October 12, 1928) who, in 1873, married John Henry Chute (b. about 1852). The weddings of both Mary Ann and her sister Catherine Matilda were in Elgin Co. Caroline Frank Wall apparently died while the girls were very young. James then moved from Grey County to Elgin County. It would be quite a journey with two small children in the 1850s. Elgin County marriage records show that on Apr. 25, 1859 James Wall married Delilah Ferguson King (b. Abt. 1841–d. December 22, 1916). Delilah was the widow of Joseph King and had a daughter, Elizabeth King (b.1855-d.1892), who, in 1873, in Elgin County, married William Chute (b. 1854-d.1929). Descendants of James and Delilah were Lannie Wall (b.1864–d.1875), Susan Wall (b.1865-d.1952) married in 1883 to Ruben A. Powers (b.1859-d.1922), Joseph Danford Wall (b. 1866-d. March 16, 1882) who died after falling from a tree, Margaret Jane Wall (b.1868-d.1868), John David Wall (b. 1869-d.1936) married in 1885 to Cynthia Ann Perry (b.1864-d.1948), and Dilley M. Wall (b. 1875-d.1940) married in 1891 to Charles A. Roloson (b.1868-d.1941). James Wall is shown in the 1871 -1881, 1891, and 1901 censuses as living in Elgin County. James passed away Jan. 8, 1909 and is buried in the Luton Cemetery near Aylmer, and Delilah passed away Dec. 22, 1916 and is buried with James at Luton Cemetery. It is interesting to note that Elizabeth King (Delilah's daughter from her first marriage) and Catharine Wall (James' daughter from his first marriage), step-sisters, were both married on Dec. 10, 1873, to two brothers, William and John Chute. 
Wall, James (I8306)
 
129 4. Mary Ann Wall
Born Nov. 23, 1832 at Montague Township, Lanark Co. Mary Ann married Ambrose Rose on November 22, 1854, Smith Falls, Lanark Co, Ontario. They had a family of four children. Their first born was a son, William, born in Canada in 1856. They moved to Alexandria, Jefferson County, New York. They are shown in the 1860 US Census as living there. Children born in New York were Melissa, in 1856, and sons, Alvin, born 1858 and James A., born 1859. Mary Ann must have died sometime in the 1860s. The 1870 US Kansas Census shows Ambrose married to a wife, Hannah, and a son Merton. It does not list his first family. Where did the children live after their mother died? I have found that William Rose moved to Elgin County sometime before the 1881 Ontario census. He was a farmer. He married Harriet and they had three children; Lillie (1880 – 1939), Arthur (1882 – 1898), and William J. (1893 – 1962). All are buried in Union Cemetery, Yarmouth Twp., Elgin County, Ontario. William L. Rose (July 11, 1856 - Sept 30, 1908) and Harriet E. Rose, (March 3, 1855 – Jan. 8, 1933), are also buried in Union Cemetery. There is no concrete information on Melissa born in 1856. Alvin Rose is shown in the 1881 Census living on a farm in Leeds & Grenville County, Ontario. Ontario marriage records show a marriage of Alvin Rose of New York to Caroline Phillips, on September 3rd, 1881. Both are said to be residents of Renfrew. In Renfrew, Alvin and Caroline Rose had a son, George (1891-1897) and a daughter Melissa (1900-1968). Melissa married Harold T. McIlvenna on October 4th, 1918. Alvin's wife Caroline died October 10, 1913 and he then married Anna Maley in 1917. Alvin died on May 27th, 1931. These family members are buried in Hillcrest Cemetery, Smiths Falls, Ontario. James A. Rose (1857-1922) immigrated to Canada in 1876. The 1881 Census tells us he was a shoemaker married to Phoebe Land (1857-1940) and living in Elgin County. The family of James and Phoebe consisted of seven boys: William b.1880, Walter b. 1881, Robert b. 1882, Edward b. 1885, Harry b. 1890, George b. 1894, Joseph b. 1901. James and his wife, Phoebe, are buried in Aylmer Cemetery, Section C, Malahide Twp, Elgin Co, Ont.

131 5. Maria Wall-This is Patrick Burns line.
Born about 1834 in Brockville, Leeds County, Ontario and died April 24th, 1900 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan where she moved after her husband's death. Maria came to Grey County, Ontario with her parents and siblings from Lanark Co, in the late 1840s. She married James Bottrell about 1851. James was born in Cornwall, England, 1827 and his family came to Canada before the 1851 Grey County census. In Bentinck Township, Grey County, James Bottrell's parent's home was across Durham Road from the farm of Moses Wall whose daughter was Maria Wall. In the 1851 Agricultural Census of Ontario, we find Maria and James married and living on the land next to the farm of James' parents, William Bottrell (b. 1798) and his wife, Mary Bottrell (b. 1796). William and Mary Bottrell were born in Cornwall, England. William Bottrell's gravestone states a "native of Cronwall" and date of death is April 30th, 1858, age 60 years. He is buried at the St. George Cemetery, Hanover, Grey Co, Ontario, Canada. Most likely his wife Mary is there too. Found Mary's death registration; Mary Bottrell died on Oct. 4th, 1880, age 92, Widow. Born Cornwall, England, 1788. Informant: Robt Campbell (her son in law). She died at her daughter's home, Charity (Bottrell) Campbell, at the District of Muskoka, Muskoka Co, Ontario.
The Bottrell family is shown living in Warbstow parish at Launceston, of Cornwall County, England in the 1841 census; William Botteral, his wife Mary, and their children:
-James (1827)
-Robert (1833)
-Charity (1836) She married Robert Campbell. From a gravestone at St. George Cemetery: William, son of Robt & Charity Campbell, died May 16th, 1855 age 2 yrs. Charity died on June 18th, 1896, age 63 at the District of Muskoka. On her death registration is listed born in Cornwall, England and Robert died on Feb, 26th, 1923, age 93, born 1830 Ireland.
-Philip (1837) "Native of Cornwall" died Sept. 29th, 1879, aged 43 years, his wife Mary Ann, died June 7th 1904, aged 78 years from their gravestone inscription at St. George Cemetery.
-Samuel (1839) Married Mary Camble on Oct. 3rd, 1860, Normanby Twp, Grey Co.
Found two more children in the William and Mary Bottrell family;
-William born 1823, England. (He's living with the family in the 1851 Bentinck Twp, Grey Co, Ontario census).
-John, born 1816, England. John married a Betsy (1818) about 1841 in England. They came over from England about 1844. They are farming next door to William and Mary in the 1851 Bentinck Twp Census.
On the 1871 Census tell us that Maria and James Bottrell were in Grey County, Ontario and that James was a butcher. James and Maria had ten children: John born Sept. 1853 (died Feb 16th, 1855 from gravestone from the St. George Cemetery at Hanover, with inscription listing his parents, James and Maria Battrell, age 2 years, 5 months), Ann, William Henry, Jane, James Albert, Samuel Amos, Margaret Matilda, Mary Jane, Catherine, and John.
-Ann Bottrell (b. 1855) married Henry W. Young (b. abt. 1848) in Hanover, Ontario on March 5th, 1873. John Bottrell (d. February 16th, 1855) buried in the St. George Cemetery in Bentinck Township, Ontario.
-William Henry Bottrell, (b. November 24th, 1855-d. September 29th, 1909), married Mary Ann (b. October 30th, 1865). William died in London, Ontario.
-James Albert Bottrell (b. about 1860) married Catherine Brocher on Oct. 24th, 1883.
-Samuel Amos Bottrell, (b. January 5th, 1863- d. August 26th, 1922) married Margaret Sarah Donnelly (b. March 2nd, 1873) in Hanover, Ontario on November 18th, 1889. Margaret was the daughter of John Donnelly and Alice Russell of Bentinck Township. Samuel and Margaret had three daughters, Edna Mary (b. 1891), Gertrude Maria (b. April 7th, 1893 in Walkerton, Ontario), and Pearl (b. April 23rd, 1897 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan – d. September 21st, 1937 in Detroit, Michigan). Edna married John Madden, Gertrude married James Hurst and, in London, Ontario, Pearl married Daniel Burns (b. June 15th, 1896 in Ontario – d. December 18th, 1970 in Detroit, Michigan) in a Roman Catholic wedding at St. Peter's Cathedral in the heart of London. Pearl and Dan Burns had fifteen children by the time Pearl died at age 40. Her parents, Samuel and Margaret Bottrell, may have briefly lived in the upper peninsula of Michigan at the time of Pearl's birth. Samuel is shown as a landowner there around that time. Later, Samuel and his family settled in London, Ontario where Samuel was a streetcar conductor.
-Margaret Matilda Bottrell (b. January 9th, 1867 – d. March 11th, 1944), married William Griffiths (b. 1865) on November 20th, 1889 in Walkerton, Ontario.
-Mary Jane Bottrell (b. about 1870).
-Catherine Bottrell (b. about 1875).
-John W. Bottrell (b. about 1878 in Grey County, Ontario) and died on September 2nd, 1898 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Saturday, September 3rd, 1898, Page 4 of "The Sault Ste. Marie News"
Death of John Bottrell. John Bottrell, driver for P. C. Kelther, after a short illness, died yesterday morning, of inflammation of the bowels. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon from the M. E. Church. Interment in the Riverside cemetery. Mr. Bottrell leaves a wife to mourn his loss.
After James Bottrell died around 1890 Maria went to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to live with her son, John. Her obituary from April 26, 1900 edition of the Hanover Post says that she had lived in Hanover seven or eight years ago. According to the obituary, Maria died of a stroke. Another obituary-Saturday, April 28th, 1900-Page 6 of "The Sault Ste. Marie News"…Mrs. Maria Bottrell died suddenly Tuesday morning at her home in the Lalande block, Asmun street, from the effects of a parlytic stroke. The deceased was 60 years of age and is survived by five children. The remains were taken to Hanover, Ont., Thursday, by Samuel Bottrell, her son, for internment. Her son William of Walkerton was in Hanover making arrangements for her internment in the Hanover (Crispin) cemetery. Her husband was buried there about 10 years before; however, there is no marker at the cemetery. Our local Librarian (Hanover) got the location from the cemetery caretakers.
On Maria's death certificate from Sault Ste. Marie, it states she was at the time of her death, 67 years, 10 months and 28 days old. That would put her birth date as May 26th, 1832. This does not work well with her sister Mary Ann's birth date, which came from church records. It's a mystery! 
Wall, Maria (I8309)
 
132 6. Henry Wall-This is Annabelle (Miller) Holley's line.
Born in Montague Township, Lanark Co in Feb. 1st, 1836 and died May 13th, 1910, Bentinck Twp, Grey Co. Henry also came to Grey County in the 1840s with his parents and lived on Con. 1 SDR. Henry married Elizabeth Hillis on Mar. 8th, 1858 in Durham County, Ontario. Elizabeth was born on July 12th, 1836, at Co. Monaghan, Ireland and died Aug. 25th, 1902, Bentinck Twp.
Elizabeth's parents, William Hillis (1799) and Mary Boyd (1794), were also a neighbour of the Wall family east of Hanover. Both William and Mary were from Co Monaghan, Ireland. William died on Dec.29th, 1881, age 82 and Mary died on April 25th, 1898, age 104. Dates and ages are from their gravestones at the Durham Cemetery, Bentinck Twp, Grey Co, Ontario, along with where born, "Native of Co. Monaghan, Ireland." They were from the town of Monaghan in Co Monaghan. They are listed in the Legnacreeve-Braddox Presbyterian Church Records there. Initially William Hillis and Mary Boyd lived at Aghnasedagh (a townland), which is part of Monaghan Town, but they attended Legnacreeve Church, which is in the town of Clontibret. Other Hillis families also listed at the same Church are James & Beth Hillis of Lisaginny, Clontibret, & Robert & Mary Hllis of Roghan, Derrynoose.
The children (all born in Ireland) of William and Mary:
-James, born 1830, married Elizabeth Wall (see her section).
-Margaret, born Nov. 12th, 1833, married David Connor.
-William 1835. Never married.
-Elizabeth, born May 29th, 1837, married Henry Wall.
-Sarah, born May 29th, 1837, twin to Elizabeth, married George Torry.
-Mary, born Apr 5th, 1842, married John White on Jan 10th, 1871.
-Ann, born 1848. Never married.
-Jane, Nov. 18th, 1845, married William Running on March 9th, 1875.
-Rebecca born on March 12th, 1850. She married Edwin Disney on Jan. 7th, 1879 (the name Helen is in marriage record).
The family was in Canada by the 1851 Bentinck Twp, Grey Co, Ontario census. James Hillis married Elizabeth Wall, Henry's sister. Henry Wall married Elizabeth Hillis, James sister. So a Hillis brother and sister married a Wall brother and sister.
Henry and Elizabeth probably lived on the lot that James Wall took out from the Crown before he and Mary Ann moved to Sydenham Township, possibly Lot 23, Con 1 SDR. They are both buried in the Crispin Cemetery, Hanover, Grey Co, Ontario.
The 1861 Bentinck Twp Grey Co, Census shows that they lived next to Henry's parents, Moses & Ann Wall. Their first two children, Mary Ann (1859 – 1931) and Moses (1861 – 1926) were born there. They then moved to Lot 11, Con 7 Bentinck Twp in 1862. Their third child was William (1863 – 1934). The other children were John (1865 – 1943), Rebecca (1868 – 1948), Margaret Jane (1870 – 1946), and Robert (1873 – 1878). Except for William, the children of Henry and Elizabeth all remained in the Grey County area. William left for the west in about 1906 and we believe that he died in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1934. There is a record of one William Wall who died in Vancouver in 1934 and his age at death was shown as 63 years. Mary Ann never married. Moses Wall (the son) married Mary Elizabeth Donnelly (b. 1864), daughter of John and Alice Donnelly of Bentinck Township. Moses and Mary's children were:
-John Henry (b. 1885) who married Sarah Cowdrey (b. 1882) on May 23, 1907.
-Elizabeth (Bessie) (1887-1947) who married Sam Wendorf (b.1882). -James (1888-1945).
Henry and Elizabeth's son John married Isabella Teasdale and their children were:
-Edgar, who died in infancy.
-Ruth who married Ross Miller.
-Ruby who married Edward Stangler and later Sylvester Benninger.
-Rebecca (1868-1946) never married.
-Margaret Jane married Willie Owens on Oct. 13th, 1895, Hanover. Their children: Ethel and William.
Henry Wall was my Great Grandfather, his son John Wall, was my Grandfather, his daughter Ruth Wall (Miller), was my Mother. We have a lot more information on the descendants of Henry Wall & Elizabeth Hillis available. -Annabelle 
Wall, Henry (I8301)
 
133 6th July 1812 The earliest mention of John (as of Dec 2004) is on a page with his discharge papers received from Fiona Gaitly. It is a statement signed by the Adjutant for the 77th Regiment to the effect that John, a private in the Light Infantry, had received a severe wound in the storming of Ciudad Rodrigo on the 19th of January 1812 which resulted in the amputation of his left arm. It says he was a brave and good soldier and was signed 6th July 1812.(FM064c) 2 December 1812. John's Discharge papers from the 77th Regiment signed 2 Dec. 1812 state that John enlisted at the age of nineteen years, served for four years and one hundred days and "in consequence of an amputated left arm at Rodrigo 19 (month?)1812, is considered unfit for further Service." The photocopy quality is poor and location of birth unclear. John is described as about 20 (?)years, 5' 71/2" with dark hair, hazel eyes and fair complexion. He was by trade a labourer. Below is a chart with a "Statement of Service" giving the dates of 24 Aug (?) 1808 to 2 Dec 1812 as the time he was with the 77th Regiment.(FM064a) 18 December 1812 On another page is a list of 'Invalid Soldiers' who were examined on 18 December 1812. John Finlayson appears on the list as age 23 having served 4 3/12 years with the regiment and having lost his left arm at Rodrigo under General Picton. The location of birth is unclear. (FM064d) OTHER 'The Gael Fares Forth' by McKenzie (Chapter XXII) tells of how John received a medal for his efforts with the 77th regiment, 34 years later.(FM045) Also see Obit FM057 (Source Unknown) See scrapbook for photos of medal which is in the custody of Les Finlayson at present along with the two pronged table fork which he used to attach to his arm stump. The musket from John's War years is in the Waipu museum. John was known as John the Soldier in Gaelic (Ian an Saighdear)(FM241C) POST MILITARY YEARS 1822 From Nova Scotia Land Grant Petitions Item no. 2883 MFM no.:15799 Grantee: Matheson, Allan & Finlayson, John Year: 1822 Petition to Kempt: Petitioners, native of Scotland, ask land on the north side of Bouladerie Island. Allan Matheson is 38 years old, married, and has three children. John Finlayson is 31 years old, is married and has three children. He served four years in the 77th Regiment, and lost his left arm at the siege of Ciudad Rodrigo. Note: approved.(FM046) 1822 From Nova Scotia Land Grant Petitions Item no. 2829 MFM no. 15798 Grantee: Finlayson, John 1822 Petition to Kempt: Petitioner wishes to resign a lot on Bouladerie for which he received a Ticket of Location. The original owner has returned to claim it. He asks in lieu a lot south-west of land owned by John Muggah & Sons on the N.W. side of Baddeck River. John Davis has relinquished his claim on this lot to petitioner. Note: Finlayson may have either lot, as Corbett, who claims the first, has no real right.(FM046) or at the following URL: http://www.gov.ns.ca/nsarm/databases/land/ 1823, 1829, 1830 Baptism Records of the Travelling clergy Documents births and baptisms for three of the children of John Finlayson and Christy Cameron of "Braddeck" - Mary Ann, (22 Dec 1823), Catharine (05 Jun 1829) and William (26 Sep 1830). (FM044) or can be found at the following URL: http://www.islandregister.com/stjohns/stjohnsindex.html Note: as Daughter Annie was born in Scotland in 1822 (per her grave) and Daughter Mary Ann was born in Cape Breton in 1823, it suggests that John and Christina arrived in the area sometime during those two dates. 1826 Dec 28 Official grant of lot 26 in Little Baddeck to John Finlayson.

Headstone was supplied by Ross and Sandy Finlayson after visiting the grave in 1994 or 95. Sept 1855 Obituary from the Peninsular War Echo (FM062) From "Middle River Past and Present History of a Cape Breton Community 1805-1985": (REF FM047) page 223: To the rear of the present day Phillip MacRae property and the original MacDougall property was a property which was owned by a John Finlayson. It is believed that this is the John Finlayson who was born at Lock Alsch, Scotland in 1780 and migrated to Cape Breton and settled at Middle River. He belonged to the 77th Regiment and was a veteran of the Peninsular War. John Finlayson married Christina Cameron. It is said that they had a family of nine. However, only the names of four are known: Alex, Archie, Margaret, and William. John Finlayson died in 1855 at the age of seventy-five years and is buried in Middle River. However, his grave is unmarked. It is believed that John Finlayson and his family may have moved to Baddeck before his death. His widow and family (the four mentioned above) migrated to New Zealand in 1856. (FM047) (NOTE: IT IS BELIEVED THAT JOHN IS ACTALLY BURIED IN A PIONEER CEMETERY IN BADDECK.) From the same book pgs 28-29: "Then there was the widow of John Finlayson (Christina Cameron) Finlayson and her four children (one of her sons was Alexander Finlayson) whose address is given as Baddeck, but were originally from Middle River." OBSERVATIONS From Discharge papers an Age of 23 in 1812 suggests DOB about 1789. From Land Grant application an Age of 31 in 1822 suggests DOB about 1791. A DOB of 'about 1790' seems reasonable Finlayson, John (I4385)

Knight of the Garter, Favourite of King Richard II

-------------------

Robert de Vere, 9th Earl of Oxford, was only nine years old when he succeeded his father. Nevertheless, he was allowed to act as Lord Great Chamberlain at the coronation of King Richard II. In 1376, King Edward III's eldest son and heir to the throne, Edward the Black Prince, died. So Richard, the son of the Black Prince (and Edward III's grandson) was proclaimed heir to the throne. A year later, King Edward III himself died. The monarch had been ill for a long time before his death and John of Gaunt (another of Edward's sons) had been acting as the de facto ruler. So, on July 16, 1377, when Richard II was crowned King of England, he was but 10 years old — so it was not too inappropriate that his ceremonial Chamberlain was a boy of nine. During the Peasants Revolt, Robert fought alongside King Richard III when the Royal forces faced Wat Tyler and his peasant army at Mile End. Robert had a tremendous relationship with Richard and the King bestowed upon the earl incredible gifts and valuable estates. This favoritism soon caused resentment among the other barons. In 1385, King Richard II created Robert EO9 as Marquess of Dublin and in 1386 gave him the additional title of "Duke of Ireland." Robert EO9 married, at age 16, Philippa de Coucy (daughter of Ingelgram de Coucy, Earl of Bedford and Isabel, the daughter of Edward III) in 1376. They were divorced in 1387, which caused quite a commotion, further inflamed when Robert set up household with one of the Queen's maids of honor. [His second marriage was to Agnes Lancerone.] Robert's enemies, furious at Oxford's new bounty of lands and titles, considered his dalliance to be the last straw. The Duke of Gloucester, who was the uncle of Robert's abandoned wife Philippa, was uniquely annoyed with EO9, and plotted with other barons to destroy Oxford. At the battle of Radcot Bridge (December 1387), Robert de Vere fought (and lost) against the Lords Appellant (headed by Gloucester and Henry of Bolingbroke). Furthermore, at the Parliament of 1388, Robert was impeached for high treason and sentenced to death, though he had already fled into self-imposed exile in France, never to return to England alive. In 1392 a boar fatally injured him while he was out hunting. Robert EO9 died childless, and was succeeded by his uncle Aubrey. Three years later, the body of the ninth earl was returned to England and re-buried in a funeral arranged and attended by Richard II. Robert's title and estates were then granted to his uncle, Aubrey de Vere who became the 10th earl.
