Golden Wedding ... "A very happy event took place on Wednesday of this week at "Sunnyside", the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Massey, about three miles north of Grafton. The event was the fiftieth anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Massey's marriage. About 75 friends and relatives assembled to celebrate the event. Twice that number were invited, but owing to the unfavorable condition of the roads, were unable to be present. A very ejoyable time was spent and everybody united in wishing the aged couple much joy on this happy occassion. After partaking of a very rich and sumptious repast, the preparing of which reflects much credit upon the ladies, addresses suitable to the occassion were delivered by Hart A. Massey, Esq., President of the Massey Manufacturing Compnay of Toronto; Rev. Mr. Balfourof Grafton; W. J. Massey, Esq., of Belleville; and O. W. Powell, Esq., of Cobourg." There followed a list of presents with donors names. Included were four cruet stands; tow gold-handled umbrellas; gold-pieces; half a dozen individual salt cups and spoons (gold lined), presented by Mr. and Mrs. Hart A. Massey, Toronto; an armchair, gift of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Hinman, which is now a prized possession of their daughter, Clara Hinman, Cobourg.

Daniel Massey

    per GEDCOM of James A. McKane, May 7, 2007)
    CEMSearch: Name: Daniel Massey; Born: 1766-12-12; Died: 1832-04-05; Age: 66y; Notes: Born N.Y. State, son of "Deacon" Jonathan Massey and Betsey Woodbury, migrated to Haldimand 1802, spouse Rebecca Kelley (Massey History); Buried: Academy Hill Cemetery, Haldimand Twp.; Other names: C. R. M. Massey; Catherine Jane Massey ( -1865), Chloe Massey (1822-1857), Isaiah Massey (1825-1831), Mary Massey (Masters) (1822-1890), Mary Susanna Massey (1849-1851), Rebecca Massey (Kelley) (1765-1838), Samuel Edward Massey (1817-1899), Susie Rachel Massey (1858-1884), William Harper Massey ( -1865)1,3,2
  • Note: circa 1800; It is suggested that Daniel Massey and wife Rebecca Kelley moved from Watertown, NY to Upper Canada in 1802. That could be so, but evidence I have seen so far shows him to be living in Vermont as late as 1798 where his son Daniel is born and the Haldimand Census records first show Daniel Massey in Haldimand in 1807. His father, Jonathan Massey and a few others had founded a settlement at Watertown, NY in 1800; elder son Daniel could have come there with his family at that time and moved on in a few years to Upper Canada. I did not find Daniel Massey alone in the 1800 Census so not sure... Any ideas re the specifics would be welcome.
  • Note: circa 1800; Watertown, Jefferson Co., New York, U.S.A.; "Daniel's Migration to Canada - To Watertownians Hart was a hero of discovery, but his brother, Daniel Massey, went much farther afield. With dauntless courage he headed for Canada. Just why Daniel alone of the twelve children came north is not clear. Perhaps the reference to a rift is correct - "the family (Massey) having split at the time of the Revolution, the tory branch going to Canada, and the Patriot branch swinging into northern New York". However the family continued on good terms, for the Canadian branch visited their relatives in U.S.; indeed, some lived with them when attending school there. We note, though, that Daniel served with the Canadian militia in the 1812-1914 war, fighting against his own folk." pg. 3, "History of the Massey Family" by Marian (Massey) Nicholson, 1961, copy provided to me by Lawrence, Massey, Morganston, Ont.4
  • Note: circa 1801; Watertown, Jefferson Co., New York, U..A.; "Early Life in Haldimand Township - Daniel and his wife, Rebecca Kelley, stopped over in Watertown for part of 1801 and 1802 as they were en route to Upper Canada. There they settled on land "Third Range back from Lake Ontario in Haldimand Township, Massey at the age of 34, began another engagement in the long battle between the forest and the pioneers that had been waged all the way from the Atlantic seaboard". Our special interest centres around the sons Jonathan and Daniel who had come with their parents to Canada. Both held land north of Grafton, Ontario. Jonathan's Lot 32, Con. 4, Haldimand Twp. is still farmed by his great grandson Grant Massey and son Carman." pg. 3, "History of the Massey Family" by Marian (Massey) Nicholson, 1961, copy provided to me by Lawrence, Massey, Morganston, Ont.4
  • Residence: circa 1802; Haldimand Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Around 1802, Daniel Massey, along with his wife Rebecca Kelley and their infant son Daniel, traveled across the lake to Haldimand Township, near the village of Grafton. Here, he obtained 200 acres of land and began the process of clearing the forest and constructing a home. Today, this same farm is the home of St. Annes Spring Water. When young Daniel was 6 years of age, he was sent back to Watertown to live with his grandparents. Here he received some education and several years later he returned back to help work the farm with his father." from "The Massey Show; Celebrating the Massey Family and History; By Myno Van Dyke" http://www.ytmag.com/articles/artint241.htm
  • Immigration*: 1802; Haldimand Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Daniel Massey came to Canada with his family from Watertown in 1802 when he was four years old, and forty years later he owned a farm of over four hundred acres at Grafton near Cobourg in Canada West, with a large house, barns and cattle.Daniel and his father had paid for it by clearing land for sale." pg. 7 of "When I was Young" by Raymond Massey.
    "The Massey's were United Empire Loyalists who came first to the Grafton area from Watertown, N.Y. in 1802." from newspaper article in Brighton Independent passed to me by Ruth McDonald, daughter of Willa McCann, whom, I had visited. The article is about Lawrence Massey and his book Aquadale: A Farm History 1869-2003".

    CEMSearch: Name: Rebecca Massey; Maiden: Kelley; Born: 1765; Died: 1838-06-03; Age: 73y; Notes: Wife of Daniel Massey (Massey History); Buried: Academy Hill Cemetery, Haldimand Twp.; Other names: C. R. M. Massey; Catherine Jane Massey ( -1865), Chloe Massey (1822-1857), Daniel Massey (1766-1832), Isaiah Massey (1825-1831), Mary Massey (Masters) (1822-1890), Mary Susanna Massey (1849-1851), Samuel Edward Massey (1817-1899), Susie Rachel Massey (1858-1884), William Harper Massey ( -1865)2,3
  • Married Name: after 1786; Massey
  • Note*: circa 1790; Salem, Rockingham Co., New Hampshire, U.S.A.; There is a Wealthy Kelley who married Aaron Hinman, a resident of Haldimand Twp. very near Grafton. She was born in 1801 in Salem Twp., Rockingham Co., New Hampshire according to Hinman family history. This is the place where the Jonathan Massey family lived for a time in the 1790's before going to Watertown - and Daniel going on to Haldimand Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario. A large Kelley family (John, Sr. & Jr. James Sr. & Jr.) are in the Haldimand records very near the Massey's from the early years. Actually, John Kelley, Sr. is shown there in the first census record in 1803 while Daniel Massey first appears in 1807. It will be difficult to determine which Kelley family Rebecca Kelly, wife of Daniel Massey, belongs to but we can guess that she may be a sister or maybe a daughter of one of these Kelley men that came to Haldimand. This may explain why Daniel Massey, alone among the children of Jonathan Massey ( a Patriot soldier) came to Upper Canada rather than settle with the rest in New York state around Watertown. Being the oldest child and son and being married with a family of his own during the very diffcult 1790's, it is not unlikely that Daniel Massey and wife Rebecca Kelley decided to follow her family to Haldimand where they had learned good land was readily available.

  • Note*: circa 1802; Haldimand Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Around 1802, Daniel Massey, along with his wife Rebecca Kelley and their infant son Daniel, traveled across the lake to Haldimand Township, near the village of Grafton. Here, he obtained 200 acres of land and began the process of clearing the forest and constructing a home. Today, this same farm is the home of St. Annes Spring Water. When young Daniel was 6 years of age, he was sent back to Watertown to live with his grandparents. Here he received some education and several years later he returned back to help work the farm with his father." from "The Massey Show; Celebrating the Massey Family and History; By Myno Van Dyke" http://www.ytmag.com/articles/artint241.htm
  • Residence*: 1802; Haldimand Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Daniel Massey had come to Canada with his family from Watertown in 1802 when he was four years old, and forty years later he owned a farm of over four hundred acres at Grafton near Cobourg in Canada West, with a large house, barns and cattle. Daniel and his father had paid for it by clearing land for sale. He and my great grandmother, Lucina, had seven children, the second of whom was my grandfather, Hart Massey, who was at this time. It was 1840. From the time he was able to walk, Daniel had worked like a man on the farm and Hart was the same way." pg. 39 of "When I was Young" by Raymond Massey.
    "The Massey's were United Empire Loyalists who came first to the Grafton area from Watertown, N.Y. in 1802." from newspaper article in Brighton Independent passed to me by Ruth McDonald, daughter of Willa McCann, whom, I had visited. The article is about Lawrence Massey and his book Aquadale: A Farm History 1869-2003".
    Note: The reference to " .. United Empire Loyalists ... " is incorrect. It probably has been taken from "Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte" which contains many inaccurate statements like this.

  • Note: circa 1840; Haldimand Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "He had made numerous trips back and forth to the United States to visit family and friends and often he would bring back machinery and tools that were not known to Canadians. One of his first acquisitions was the "Bull Thresher", which was set up in the barn where the grain was brought to it. Soon, neighbouring farmers would also bring their grain into the Massey barn and have it threshed. Since the blacksmiths in Cobourg and Grafton were some distance away, Daniel Massey built a small machine shop where he could repair not only his own machinery but his neighbour's as well. Massey recognized that there was a great demand for labour saving implements, so, often he would bring back these tools and implements from his trips to visit family in the United States. Eventually, Massey decided to turn the farm over to his son Hart and concentrate on making and repairing farm machinery." from "The Massey Show; Celebrating the Massey Family and History; By Myno Van Dyke" http://www.ytmag.com/articles/artint241.htm

It was the first threshing machine to be used in Upper Canada. My great-grandfather wrestled with the monster for two years and made it work for the harvest of 1842. It still needed eleven men to work it but threshing with flails required double that number. According to grandma, in about 1845, Daniel said to his son, Hart, "If only I had a factory instead of a farm."" from pg. 41 of "When I Was Young" by Raymond Massey.

  • Note: 1847; Newcastle, Durham Co., Ontario; "Father's office was in "the works", on King Street West near the Exhibition grounds - the Toronto factory and offices of the farm implement business found by my great-grandfather, Daniel Massey in 1847. By 1901, it had become a world-wide operation called Massey-Harris Company. It was still a family business , but only just, since family firms tend to run out of family. On the sudden death of my beloved Uncle Walter, who had been President of Massey-Harris for five years, my father was the sole surviving son of Hart A. Massey, who had built the company to its present stature. Three Massey's, Hart, my grandfather, and two of my uncles,Charles and Walter, had been presidents." from pg. 9 of "When I Was Young" by Raymond Massey.
  • Residence: 1847; Clarke Twp., Bond Head, Durham Co., Ontario; A recent trip to the area shows that Bond Head is a small village at the shore of Lake Ontario south of Newcastle. Just drive south on Mill St., go over the 401 and under the railway bridge, then swing left at the lights. The road goes down to the marina and pier. Well before the marina Queen Victoria Road goes east and at the corner of Park Lane we find The Bond Head Cemetery. No Massey memorials are found there. (Dan Buchanan, June 25, 2007)5

  • Residence: 1848; Mill & Metcalfe St., Newcastle, Durham Co., Ontario; "Richard. F. Vaughan, owned a small foundry and machine shop in the village of Bond Head, on Lake Ontario in Durham County between Cobourg and Oshawa. Vaughan was an acquaintance of Daniel Massey, likely through Stephen Vaughan who was married to Lucinda Massey's sister Cyrene. Stephen and Cyrene lived just south of Richard Vaughan's foundry. Richard Vaughan had to close the shop in 1847 and shortly after formed a partnership with Daniel Massey to use the building for manufacturing implements. Vaughan provided the building and equipment and Massey provided the money. Within six months, Massey bought out Vaughan's interest in the business and became the sole owner. By 1848, his reputation and business had grown and he had to find a larger facility. Today, a fine looking newer bungalow is situated on the property where the foundry once stood at the north-east corner of Mill and Metcalf Streets. Stephen and Cyrene's house, built around 1843, is still there at 579 Mill Street South." per "The Massey Show"
