Family of Richard Bridge of Wittersham and Kingston, Ontario, 1799-1880

Richard Bridge

Sarah Bridge

Richard and Sarah Bridge emigrated to Canada with their family about 1842. Twenty years later they were clearly prospering, as these pictures suggest. Today there are many descendants spread across Canada and the United States, amongst them a great great grand-daughter Lona Dale Warner (LDW) who has recently sent me images of many original photographs, including these two. I am most grateful to her to be able to include them here.

One page survives of a letter in which Sarah's grand daughter Lucy described her grandmother's memories of life in the Kent village from which they came: I heard my grandmother say she sang in the choir, & that she could hear chimes ring while she was in her home & she used to sing them to me. She liked it there & they had a nice garden with pear trees & other fruit. She was sick in bed once she said & one of her little boys used to go and get pears for her.

Although emigration brought new opportunities, conditions in Kingston would have been considerably harsher than in Kent and the winters in particular would have been long and dreary with prolonged snow. A surviving great grandson, BMB describes the country round Kingston in the early 1940's: One thing that did impress me, even as a child, was the multitude of limestone outcroppings everywhere you look. In between the outcroppings vegetation would grow enough for grazing cows and offer room for a small garden. Apparently dairy farming was the main occupation as every village/hamlet would have a cheese factory. Westbrook had one! (free samples for visitors) Limestone was useful in building homes, there are many of them still there. Lucy's letter mentions Richard's family living in an old stone house, later used as a workshop and eventually demolished.

Almost certainly, Andrew and Amos would have attended the "Free School" in Wittersham. There is a plaque in the church which reads:

THE FREE SCHOOL OF WITTERSHAM was founded A.D. 1820 by the Rev. William CORNWALLIS and MARY his wife. in memory of their grandson JAMES CORNWALLIS TRIMMER. _for the benefit of all boys above seven years old the children of labourers resident in the Parish: who are entitled to five years instruction therein. and four years more at the night school. as stated in the deed of endowment.
The said founders give 18 acres 0 rods 13 perch of Marshland situate near Smallhythe and known by the name of the sixteenacres. for this purpose: the rents to be administered by five Trustees: viz. the Rectors of Wittersham. Biddenden. and Beckley. and the two Churchwardens of Wittersham: who are required to relet the land by tender once in twenty one years at least. and to give public notice thereof as directed in the said deed: and the said deed or a copy of it is required to be read in the church by the Minister every year after evening prayers on Whit Sunday.
Four fifths of the yearly rent are to be paid to the Master and a fifth to be reserved
A public examination is to take place about. or before, midsummer, when the accounts are to be settled and the rewards given to the boys as directed in the deed.
The master must be a sound member of the of Church England. and the children are required to attend Divine Service with him at the parish church. and are to be further instructed according to the Founders directions._None of the Trustees. nor the Minister of the Parish nor any person who has received parish relief shall be elected Master
Should any of the regulations made in the said deed not be complied with, the inhabitants are required to make complaint to the Archbishop of Canterbury. who is empowered to remedy all abuses.
The original deed is lodged in the iron chest of the Parish of Wittersham: it is also enrolled in the Court of Chancery. and Copies of it are lodged with the Rectors of Biddenden and Beckley and with the School Master

1841 Some time after the census Richard emigrated with his family to Kingston, Ontario, in Canada. (The date is based on the year of immigration given by Andrew in the 1901 census.) Lucy Bridge noted that when they first arrived in Ontario, the family stayed with a Mr. Orens who kept a feed store near the market in Kingston.

1851/2 Kingston, Frontenac Agric. Census of Canada West Richard Bridge 160 ac (120 ac under crops) Concession I, lot 5

Canada West (later named Ontario) was divided into counties (like Frontenac and Brant) which in turn were subdivided into "townships"; these were geographical units and might or might not contain a population centre corresponding to an English "town". In particular, the township of Kingston contained the city of Kingston as well as the separate villages of Collins Bay, Westbrook, Cataraqui and several others. In general, on this page location refers to the township and county.

The townships themselves were divided into "concessions", strips about a mile wide running straight across the map, in turn sliced into "lots" of varying widths. In 1851 Richard's lot lay on the south side of the road through the village of Collins Bay, due west of the city of Kingston. On the Kingston map of 1878, this lot is divided into two with a southern part of 160 acres, matching Richard's holding. In the 1851 census, the rest of the lot together with lot 4 is held by Calvin Day, which same name appears on the 1878 map for the holder of part of lot 4, while Sydney W. Day has the 160ac parcel in lot 5.

Not all of the pages of the 1851 census have survived and the Personal census for concession 1 is very short and does not include Richard or any of his family. Andrew had left home to work in Burford and Sarah Ann and Mary are found in a different part of Kingston. The pages show the name of the enumerator but no date; much of the work was done in 1852. Also, ages were recorded for next birthday, so I have deducted one. The results are correct for the girls ages in 1852.

Ages originally recorded for next birthday so reduced by one.
The accompanying Agricultural census shows Richard to have a farm of 300 acres, valued at $10000. Of this 200ac was woodland, 50ac under crops and 25ac pasture. Clearly this was a much better outcome than he could have expected had he remained in England.

The census shows Richard to be sharing a large lot, not numbered but apparently at the far western end of concession II, across Collins Creek. The lot was described simply as "one square mile" (= 640 ac) and Richard's holding of 300ac can tentatively be identified with that of D E Grass shown on the map of 1878, lying on the south side of the road to Westbrook.

about 1860, judging by appearance Original photograph of Richard Bridge owned and scanned by Greg Bridge

(The original is very faded but I have enhanced the contrast as far as possible.)

He does not seem to be in working clothes but the photographer clearly did not use studio props or pose his subjects! The full picture shows the edge of the backdrop, which seems to be a coarse woven material such as was used for screens at windows and doors.

On the back of the picture are written his dates of birth and death

Sarah and Charles were the youngest surviving children of Andrew and Elizabeth. Rhoda is a mystery! However, she seems to have stayed in Westbrook until marrying five years later.
18 Apr 1876 Westbrook, Kingston, Ontario Marriage register Rhoda Bridge daughter of James & Sarah Bridge & William Henry Ewings, bach., farmer, son of Charles & Ellen Ewings RB: 17, b. Kingston township
WHE: 27, b. Dengal (= Donegal), Ireland
witnesses: Amos and Mary Bridge

This raises a considerable puzzle, because although Richard had an elder brother James, he did not emigrate. So far as I can tell from the censuses, there was no James Bridge living in Ontario who could be Rhoda's father. However, Richard's daughter Sarah did marry James Johnston, two or three years after Rhoda's birth. Possibly Rhoda was Sarah's daughter and maybe also James's. This would certainly explain why she lived with her grandparents.

The witnesses to the marriage must have been Andrew's first son Amos and Andrew's eldest daughter Mary Elizabeth.

Sarah was generally known as Sarah Jane, though baptised Sarah Anne. She died in 1919 shortly after her brother Andrew and his Kingston obituary states she was then living in Salamanca, New York.
Mary 1836 - ?
Mary and her older sister Sarah were both recorded in the 1851 census as living with (working for, presumably) Josiah Lamkins, a tavern keeper in Kingston. Roger Bredin believes she married a man called Wilson. However, the letter in which Lucy Howie mentions the old stone house in Westbrook also states that Mary died there (though not when), which makes it appear rather more likely that she was unmarried. I cannot find any further trace of her in the records available on-line.

Dave Cross (DRC) has also supplied information and more recently some scans of old photos, notably this one of Martha with her husband and family.

The striking picture of the newly-wed couple was labeled Amos Bridge Ion and Lida, though the name in the register of marriage is Lila. The parents were living in Toronto and appear in the 1891 census with a family that includes a slightly older daughter Elizabeth, often shortened to Liza.

Family of Andrew Bridge

Family of Amos Bridge of Brantford, Ontario, 1830-1920

These pictures of Amos and his wife Jennie come from LDW's collection and probably date from about 1865. Amos, like his elder brother Andrew, was born in England and came to Canada in 1841, when he was 10. He seems to have settled in the Brantford area and remained there all his adult life, working as a school teacher.

The picture on the right, also from LDW, was not identified but was taken by a Brantford photographer and so probably shows the two oldest children, Alberta and Edith. A later picture of Edith shows that she resembled her mother in having widely spaced eyes and this feature seems to me to be present even in the young girl.

Clarance Bridge F (!) 4, b. Ontario
Ernest Bridge M 3, b. Ontario

This information seems to be thoroughly garbled! Amos and Mary Jane did have four children who married and from the dates/ages in the marriage records the names and ages of the children in 1871 should have been shown as:

  • Alberta, 10-11
  • Edith, 8
  • Ernest, 6
  • Clarence, 4

By 1881 Alberta was married and the other three appear in the correct order. The boy shown in the 1861 census seems to have died, unless once again the sex was recorded wrongly and the child was actually Alberta. Her date of birth is noted as 27 Apr 1859 in the 1901 census, though the age on the registration of marriage would put her birth a year later. Either way one would expect her to have been in the 1861 census.

The apparent moves between Burford and Brantford probably arise from the way the census was organised; Burford is much smaller than neighbouring Brantford.
