Albert C. Bowerman - his works
Records of the Bay of Quinte

These notes were found scattered amongst the materials that were identified as belonging to A.C. Bowerman. They appear to be letters and notes made in the preparation of his genealogical work on the Bowerman family dated 1904. Other material may have been added by later readers.

These unpublished notes are held by the Canadian Quaker Archives at Pickering College in Newmarket, Ontario. They are in folder 5-5 of the Marion Cronk Fonds. The transcription was done from digital images that are in folder 1.0.
Permission to publish this transcription for your personal use on this site was given by the archivist, Jane Zavitz Bond of the Quaker Archives.

Thanks are expressed to Carm Foster and Doug Smith for transcribing these often difficult notes.
[Images 12, 30, 40 and 41 were out of focus and need to be re done.]

Original school built presumeably 1798-
The first in the vicinity & one of the first in the Country 18’ X 20’ – a Large fire place made of logs – opening into a wide plastered chimney –
Evidently served a neighbourhood extending at least as far a Hubert MacDonald’s to the north – Seats fixed & ranged around the walls
            Used until 1821 – when the Quaker – Meeting house, on Bowerman’s Hill, was abandoned as a place of worship and the building converted into a school House, and used as such as late as 1835
            Sometime after this date a school was established at McFaul’s bridge – approximately a mile west – presumeably near where the rail road crosses the Danforth Road – now known as Highway 33 –

Re: Fishing at Wellington as told by Wm Garratt Sr. whose faterh Isaac Garratt used to relate the story as follows –
“ old Daniel Reynolds – the father of the family in Pr. Ed. Co. –
“ lived near where Bishop Reynolds’ stone house stands 1886,
“ Isaac asked Daniel one day how he liked the County ?
“ and Daniel replied that he did not like it “ the neighbours”
“ were getting too close for him to have any range for his”
“ cattle” – at that time the nearest neighbours were the
“ Palmers - & Garratts (near Wellington) and next Col. Stinson
“ some three miles East.  The same Reynolds has
“ the reputation of having caught the first spring salmon
or ra?t?? of Living? discovered their pleantiful abundance of Spring Salmon numbers
“in Lake Ontario – He told Isaac Garratt of his rich find,
“and enjoined secrecy in old Mr Garratt lest the
“neighbours would catch them all but Garratt said
“it was too good to Keep so went & told Stinson and
“they ??? all ???? in fish.
            It is told by old Stephen Blount that one Justus
“Fox of Pulacki N.Y. was the first man to bring a
“seine to Wellington beach – Blount paid him $500.
“for the half.  Fox would go home in the summer and
“return for the fishing in the Autumn.  Two or three years
“after they began fishing, they caught at one haul 44000
“White fish, old Josiah Bull, brother of Mrs. Stephan Blount
“having 5 Barrels for his hand ???.  This circumstance
“was recounted? & related by the Garratt family in ’86 – (This was
“about 1834).  Fox and his stepsons Rufus and Thomas
“Bishop used to board at Garratt’s.  Fox’s wife was Rebecca
“Bull 2nd Cousin to the Bull family of this County.
(one Maurice Tryon married Foxs’ sister)
At the time of W. Garratts boyhood the beach at Wellington was very wide and crowded with cedars, a regular wilderness in which the children used to get lost in their play – one a bear was overtaken in the lake – and was shot by some of a party of almost 50 on the beach.  A knife to cut the throat was needed and among? This whole party of men & boys only a single “jack-knife” was to be had.

Early fish would weigh not more than on an average 1 lb to 2 lbs and lake fish from 2 lbs – up to 6 lbs. – but the largest fish caught by Mr. Johnson weighed 11 lbs – that fish was stolen from the beach?

Niles ‘ “Jane Niles, born at Butternuts, Otsego Co. NY. 1763: Mar. 1782 came to Canada early in 1785. Her husband Willet Casey came to Canada in 1783 locating on the Bay of Quinte (4th town); erected a log house and a blacksmith’s shop, returning for his wife – was taken ill and a year elapsed before they set out for their new house.

            At the Richard Morden place back of the swamp north of Gore G. Church, it was a wild place – When R. M. was clearing away a place for his first log house, he lived at  [a space has been inserted here] a mile or more away – Toward evening he used to hear the wolves howl and then in some natural trepidation he would hasten homeward – By and by he did hear the wolves in a barking pack howling around the spot which he had just left.  It is not surprising that such proximity to a hungry pack of wolves would make him have some scruples about returning to work in such an insecure out of the way region.  But with the mornings light, the old feeling of fear would vanish with the fleeing wolves and back to his work he would go again.  When the house was completed and occupied it was no
elysium, no quiet eden in which to feel the calm security that disposes to happy sleep.
 
Image 43 – Carm Foster
            Often R.M. has seen the bright eyes of eager wolves peering through the chinks of the rude home (hut) and often & often as the nights returned, the wolves would run and play and howl and gambol about that strange habitation in the midst of their ancient hunting rounds.  So noisy would become at times that he did take the old dinner horn and climbing up into the wide stone chimney would give it a blast – like the that would strike consternation into the savage canines and send them chasing the echos into the most distant and dense retreats of the neighbouring jungle and only to return ??? on the following night & repeat their playful antics.  Gradually however as the county became cleared, and the number of inhabitants in creased the wolves became scarcer and at last after many years they quite disappeared – Deer however continued
 
Image 44 – Carm Foster
long after the migration of their fierce foe the wolf, they became scarcer owing to the continual hunting and worrying of dogs – but as they were now free from the wolves they grew less timid and often were to be seen running in the open when chased by barking c??s.  There are many still living who remember their first “buck” and who have followed the bay bay of the sl??? hound as he gave “tongue” to the retreating deer.  Deer and wolf have long since become extinct in the woods & swamps of Pr. Ed. but it may be said that their tracks are still to be seen”. although and where except in the memories of of the oldest inhabitants.  Those were rude and rugged times when the husband stood by with a hankspike and kept the wolves from frightening the cattle while the wife did the evening milking - !  And the wolves were playful enough when they came into the little farm yards at night
Image 45 – Carm Foster
and gamboled among the cows like so many Kittens: but this they often did and were thus more mischievous than dangerous.  There doubtless were young ones – well fed and not thinking of anything more vicious but to learn the whereabouts of the meat lambs and pigs.  to ?????
R. Morden more than once stood guard over M. while she did the milking – and on a dark evening in summer-time when the lighting made the darkness gloom more intense the g frolicking gray wolves could be seen at each flash scatter about the yards in the act of running and chasing each other in sport for at the lightening flash all seemed to be standing perfectly still – a phenomenom easily demonstrated from by a sudden flash of lamplight in a dark room upon a rapidly revolving wheel. – In later times when their numbers became greatly lessened through hunting them for the
 
Image 46 – Carm Foster
bounty, an occasional pair would make a nocturnal visit to some farmer’s yards and destroy a number of sheep.  The approach of winter with frosts and snow drove them to seek a dainty morsel in the slautre? of a lamb or a calf and thus they were often tracked in the newly fallen snow on one occasion, at the yard of the Elder Stephan Bowerman when there were both cattle & sheep, the light even snow betrayed a visit by a pair of those hungry denizens of the wood and showed too the sagacity of both sheep & cows and the wholesome dread of the wolves for the ?allins lions.  The tracks showed in the morning where the wolves had crossed the yard – The sheep had crowded close together by the sides of the barn and in a semicircle formed by the cattle which acted as a guard to the more timid and defenceless sheep.   Examples of this kind of evidences of more than instinct, and shows
 
Image 47 – Carm Foster
 us that even among what now are loftily placed to call the lower animals than  a community of  danger interacts serves to link together in one common bond, widely different races in friendly union for defence.  The males among the deer were well Known to guard & protect the unarmed female – Before the advent? of the Europeans their guard  for?? were the wolf & the stealthy Indian – Both  the latter were in time crowded out of a habitation and still later the graceful deer gave way before the advance of a murderous civilization   The deer were very numerous when our Ancestors first came – and a haunch of venison was no extraordinary luxury as A heavy fall of snow often assisted in the capture of a number of these valuable animals which collected together in herds in the dense swamps among the cedars and spruces where the Eagles made a shelter from the

snow & the wind and gave them the necessary “”Browse” – In some of their places the old hunter came upon them in great numbers almost decended in their snow pens from which the snow was trampled and pawed to get at the grass and undergrowth.  There was no escape from their pens with the drifts loose heavy snow outside, except for the larger and more active buck which would bound away when alarmed, to some neighboring snow pen – leaving the females (does) to be easily captured.

Dear Cousin,-
            And we are proud to be called cousin, no matter how many times removed.  We were very pleased to receive your Christmas Greetings & note, & thank you so much for remembering us.  We too enjoyed the time spent with you & are grateful for the help you gave.
            We reached home in Oct. but found such an array of tasks awaiting us, after our absence, that we were obliged to neglect family history & correspondence.  I fully expected to get a card & note to you for Christmas, but that, too, was side-tracked when one of our sons & his family arrived a week before we looked for them to spend their first Christmas in Kans. Since 1938.  We have finally resumed work on the family history, and are sending you my Bowerman line, also a copy of the data we have accumulated, from Thomas’ down.  Errors may be found by checking lists with each other.
            And we should like very much to have your line.
            Also you mentioned a line of Jane Richmond, which I do not have.  We were very glad to have your comment concerning the Phebe Bowerman, buried at Pickering.  We had wondered about her, but had no way of locating her in the family.  Her grave is not far from that of my Grandmother, Phebe Bowerman, dau. of Israel, but Grandmother’s stone say only –
Phebe, wife of Joseph L. Rogers, Died Apr. 2, 1852 Ae 43 years 3 mos. 
Beside her is her son     Ralph H., d. 4th da. 7 mo. 1860, Aged 19 yrs. 6 mo. 27 da.
                                    (Ralph Hill)
And near by is a little Grandson, Walter L. son of Wilson P. & Mary G. Rogers, d. Mar. 10, 1864, Aged 1 year & 6 months,

Permission was first given by the Court, in 1659 to view & purchase a tract at Suskanesset.
Thos. Hinckley & Richard Bourne were at that time empowered to arrange with the Indians for the same.  These negotiations evidently fell through.

June 4, 1661 Thos. Burman of  Sandwich was one of 2 names added, and a little later Thos. Burman again.  The lands of Suckanesset were first laid out Nov. 1661.
            Thos.2 Bowerman, b. Barnstable 1648, removed to Falmouth, buying Apr. 22, 1690, of Jonathan Hatch & Robt. Harper, as agents, 100 A. land on Easterly side of 5 Mile River.
Jv.26 – Robert Harper, another Quaker, who settled in Falmouth, about 1668, had been imprisoned in Boston, & received 15 striped there.  His fines in Sandwich totaled ฃ44. which stripped him of house, land, & all cattle, except “one cow, which was so poor she was ready to dye”.
            In 1678. Thos2 Bowerman married Mary Harper, dau. of Robert harper, a well known Quaker, who was an agent in the early purchase of lands from the Indians at Suckanesset.
