Why I am interested in the John Smiths of Sidney.
After posting research on Judge James Smith and his son John Smith, I received a number of emails from people trying to connect "their" John Smith into this family. It became evident that there were a few different John Smiths in the area c1800. This web page is meant to be a collecting spot for information on these first settlers. Maybe over time relationships will be better understood. Sympathy needs to be expressed to those who are researching a John Smith. I would like to thank Eric Bowler, Lorene Sinclair, Virginia Hannay and Peter Johnson for their information and enthusiasm.

1. John Smith of Murray, son of Judge James Smith
See section 9 of the lengthy web page on Judge James Smith to see the conclusions and supporting records for this John Smith. He was born in 1772 and settled in Murray Township and it is my conclusion that he married Phebe Lake, the daughter of Nicholas Lake. He inherited Lot 1, Con 1, Murray as stated in his father's will. This lot is the eastern shore of the Trent River at the mouth and explains why he petitioned, unsuccesssfully, for the ferry lease in 1802. Then he sold his interest in lot 1 in 1808 to Patrick Smythe of Kingston but in 1812 he sells 100 acres of part of lots 1 and 2 to his brother James. It is not clear where he resides after 1812 and he is not in the 1814 Murray census. It is very possible he returned to the US where many of his relatives were. His brother Peter and Henry were dead and Henry's son Seymor returned to the US.

2. John Drummond Smith of Murray
John D Smith, born abt 1756, is a settler not a loyalist. His wife is dentified as Elizabeth in the 1808 Murray Census. In 1812 he had an inn or tavern in Murray Tp. His lot 21, Con A, is cut in half by the modern Hwy 2 at Smithfield. This was a road as well at that time and his Inn was likely on that road. Bigford Rd runs along the east side of the lot.

3. John J Smith; lot 3, con 2, Sidney
This lot was granted to Judge James Smith in 1802. It was sold by Judge James Smith in 1803 to Peter Row of Murray. In 1812 John Smith of Sidney bought 33 acres of the lot and in 1821 John J Smith acquired a further 100 acres of the lot. In the 1845 will of John J Smith both of these parts of the lot are given to his wife Mary Smith and daughter Harriet, wife of Charles Mabee. Therefore the John Smith and John J Smith of the above purchases are the same man. In 1827, his daughter Mary Smith marries James Knox - see below.

It seems reasonable to assume that John J Smith is not the son of Judge James Smith. Judge Smith sold the whole lot before he died and it is a coincidence that it ends up being acquired by a John Smith of Sidney. Also John Smith, son of the Judge was born about 1772 and John J Smith according to his headstone would be born in 1785. So who is this John J Smith? Did he come from Fredericksburgh?

Eric Bowler states that John J Smith married Elizabeth Rau - could this be Row, daughter of Peter Row from whom he bought the lot?

MARY SMITH m. JAMES KNOX
Eric Bowler speculated that Mary Smith who married James Knox is the daughter of John J. Smith. Linda Smith (no relation) discovered the marriage record in the Anglican Church registers for St Thomas Church, Belleville and solved the puzzle. Mary dies in the late 1830's and thus is not named in the 1845 will of John J Smith.

James Knox, a native of the Fermanagh, Ireland, now residing in the Township of Sidney, Bachelor & Mary, daughter of John J Smith of the Township of Sidney, spinster, were married by publications of banns on Tuesday, the 20th day of March, 1827. [signed] Thos Campbell, Rector

Source: St Thomas Church, Belleville, Register, Anglican Archices, Kingston, Ontario, 7-B-1, marriage 201, personal files AA Belleville 5372-5609, image 222

It is interesting in hindsight to follow Eric's hypothesis; he wrote, "My wife's great-great grandfather was James Knox (1798-1876), an Irishman who purchased 150 acres, parts of lot 5 and 6, 2nd concession of Sidney in 1829. As PLBQ puts it; 'he married for his first wife, Mary Smith, of the pioneer Smith family'. Although I have no proof whatsoever, I believe that this Mary Smith was the daughter of John J. Smith and Elizabeth Rau. This belief is based on two slim items of evidence:"
  • "One: The Smith family lived on an adjacent farm and it is logical to assume that a hard-working farmer without family holdings would not want to go far afield for courting purposes.
  • Two: The first son of their marriage was named Jacob Smith Knox, probably after Mary (Smith) Knox's brother. This boy later became a Justice of the Peace and assisted John George Smith in his land deals. (See below)."
  • Source: Email from Eric Bowler, Apr 2012
MORE  ON JAMES KNOX
James Knox, weaver, born in Fermanagh, Ireland about 1798, immigrated first to Brockville and then relocated to and work in Sidney at the farm of Thomas Jones 'pioneer' (Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte). Then he bought and farmed Con 2 Lot 5,6 Sidney Twp for the rest of his life. I have photos of the house and some of his family. James Knox married about 1825 his first wife MARY SMITH, probably born about 1800, of the 'pioneer Smith family' (PLBQ). Their children were Jacob S, William Henry, Margaret Ann, Uriah and John Knox. Mary Smith Knox died by the late 1830's when James married his second wife, MARTHA BROWN , from whom I descend through her daughter Mary Anne, one of 6 more children.

Who is John R Smith? A John R Smith is in the early record and a number of researchers think he is Richard Smith who married Betsy Lake, daughter of Nicholas Lake. See this web page on Richard Smith.

I came across your info on the LAKE family re: Ernestown and Belleville.  I have felt that Richard Smith was not the full, correct name for Elizabeth Lake's husband.  In your listings of the early Belleville land transactions there appears the name John R Smith.   My great, great grandmothers wedding announcement mentions John R Smith as a witness. The children's names match our family names and some were married in St. Thomas Church I believe. I have wondered for quite a while if John R. Smith was the full name for Richard Smith, a long shot!!!!

5. John Smith of Thurlow

MEMORIAL OF JOHN SMITH OF THURLOW
John Smith Thurlow Feby 24 1814: To His Honour, Gordon Drummond Esq., President administering the Government of the Province of Upper Canada and Lieutenant-Governor commanding His Majesties Forces within the same.
The memorial of John Smith humbly shewith.
That your Memorialist on the twenty-second day of September 1812, obtained an order-in-council for four hundred acres land, for which he paid the fees of office, but owing to the then agitated state of the province, received no grant, nor made any location. Since then your Memorialist has made choice of lots number eleven in the first and second concession of the Township of Sidney, respecting which lots your Memorialist begs leave to state that in the year 1784, a person by the name of Daniel Killand, of New York, who was an officer in the army of the United States during the Revolutionary War, had his name entered on the map for said lots, but neither obtained a grant or paid any fees whatever or has ever since renewed his application for said land, nor any person for him and has ever been a citizen of the United States and if living is probably in arms against the Province at this time.
Under those circumstances your Memorialist conceived the said Killand can have no claim to the land and has therefore thought proper to make an improvement thereon and humbly trusts your honour will be pleased to authorize the grant of said land to him and your Memorialist as in duty bound will ever pray.

6. Smiths of Fredericksburgh
I notice under the James Smith Esq. 1732, much further down there is a list of Sidney pioneers. Michael Smith amongst others is from the Fredericksburgh Smith's whom many came to Sidney and Hastings.  They are from the Schmidts of Fredericksburgh. There were a lot of settlers from Murray twp. and they get confused sometimes with the Schmidt's of Fredericksburgh.  There were so many Smiths that it is confusing.  There were also the Smith's from Long Island that settled at Northport of whom some came to Belleville etc.  But Nicholas, Michael, George, Jacob, Elizabeth to name a few came from Fredricksburgh to the Belleville area.
