Col. Alexander Chisholm1,2,3

M, #38194, b. 1771, d. 12 August 1834
  • Birth*: 1771; Knockfin, Scotland; "John Chisholm of Lot 1 Con 1 Thurlow was the father of Lt Col Alexander Chisholm. The mention of "cousin" is a very important clue to the relationship of my family to this one." per email from Andrew Way, Jan 8, 2006.
    Date 1771 per Andrew Way - various emails.3
  • Marriage*: before 1800; Hastings Co., Ontario; Land Records show Alexander Chisholm had one son and three daughters in 1797?? Which Alexander Chisholm would that be???; Principal=Elizabeth Gilbert2
  • Death*: 12 August 1834; Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; Date Aug 12 1834 per Obit. Date of Nov 28 1834 is the Reg'n. TS Date on land transactions re the Will of Alexander Chisholm. Not sure of exact date but assume this is the time of death. The ITS Date is Mar 28 1829.4
  • Residence: 1788; Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "Admitted for residence by the Deputy Surveyor General in 1788" from Crown Land Records - see residence 1792.
    Note: This means he was given a "ticket" which allowed him to live on land in Hastings Co. in anticipation of obtaining proper Crown Grants and title to the land when the system allowed.
  • Residence: 1792; Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "Alexander Chisholm, Jr., of Thurlow a young man just coming of age, son of John Chisholm admitted by the Deputy Surveyor General in 1788? applied to have 200 acres of land assigned to him to settle and improve which is granted him after administering the oath .. " Item # 726, pg. 334, Crown Land Records, image sent to me via email by Andrew Way, Dec. 15, 2004.
    Also ... " ... being always firmly attached to the British Government and constitution is very desirous of becoming a resident of this District where he humbly prays that the same portion of land may be assigned to him as hath been usually granted to other Subjects of his description. ... Alexander Chisholm. Kingston. Feb 7, 1792." item 143 (from the Upper Canada Land Petitions, Vol. C - Misc 1788-1795, Microfilm Reel C-1732, Ontario Archives, Dec. 4, 2004)
    "ITEM 143 is probably a different Alexander Chisholm - Alexander Chisholm, only son of John Chisholm became 21 in 1792." per email from Andrew Way, Jan 8, 2006.3,4
  • Residence: 17 May 1797; Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; " ... the one son and three daughters being now of age ... " per Crown Land Petition 1797
    Note: This would apparently not belong to this Alexander Chisholm, since he is not married yet - but to which??5
  • Residence: 1 December 1797; Conc 4 Lot 20, Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records show that Alexander Chisholm obtained the Crown Patent for all 200 acres of Lot 20, Conc 4, Thurlow, dated Dec 1 1797.
    Note: Appears as if this Patent goes to this Alexander - (1771-1834). Doesn't fit any other???4
  • Residence: 1798; Conc 1 Lot 37, Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "The records show that Alexander obtained his patent in 1798 and John in 1797." pg. 237, Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte.
    See Land Registry Records for 1806 & 1809. These two patents are likely for another set of Chisholm brothers.6,4
  • Residence*: circa 1804; Front of Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "Alexander Chisholm (born 1752) married Elizabeth, daughter of Abel Gildert, and settled on the Front of Sidney, adjoining the present city of Belleville. He erected first a log cabin and then a frame house, now enlcosed with stone. It stands near the Death and Dumb Institute, and is one of the oldest houses in the Province of Ontario." pg. 237, Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte.6
  • Residence: 1805; 317 Dundas St., Belleville, Hastings Co., Ontario; "John Chisholm's cousin Alexander lived a short distance to the west. The house he built, so like those in his native Scotland, still stands at 317 Dundas Street West. It is one of the oldest houses in this part of Ontario and, although it has been altered during the years, it is still in remarkably good condition. It is difficult to date exactly. Chisholm's name does not appear on the title until 1809 but he likely built the house before then. The year 1805 appears above the bake oven. Possibly the house was built even earlier, for Chisholm was middle-aged man at the turn of the century and he and his wife had ten children, making a substantial house such as this almost a necessity." from "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto", by Margaret McBurney and Mary Byers, 1979, pg. 117
    IMPOTANT NOTE: "This is seriously wrong. John Chisholm of Lot 1 Con 1 Thurlow was the father of Lt. Col. Alexander Chisholm." per email from Andrew Way, Jan 8, 2006.
    And the next paragraph reads as follows: "Chisholm had emigrated to North America in 1775, stayed for a few months near Albany, New York, but left there in September of that year "finding it inconvenient to live in the Country" - due, no doubt, to the unsettling political situation. He spent the following winter in Quebec, serving with the British Militia. After the war he eventually settled on the north shore of the Bay of Quinte, near his brother Archibald and his cousin John."
    IMPOTANT NOTE: "This is referring to Alexander Chisholm, husband of Nancy (McArthur) Singleton. He actually migrated in 1773 ... " per email from Andrew Way, Jan 8, 2006.7
  • Residence: 22 February 1806; Conc 1 Lot 36, Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records (B&S B179) show that Alexander Chisholm purchased the east half 108 acres of Lot 36, Conc 1 and Broken Front, from John Detlor
    Note: John Detlor had obtained the Patent from the Crown Aug 10 18014
  • Residence: 27 February 1809; Conc 1 Lot 37, Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records (B&S B178) show that Alexander Chisholm purchased the west half 100 acres & Broken Front of Lot 37, Conc 1 from Anthony Ostrum

  • Residence: 22 November 1816; Conc 4 Lot 20, Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records (D386 B&S) show that Alexander Chisholm sold 200 acres of lot 20, conc 4, Thurlow, to James McNabb, dated Nov 22 1816.4
  • Residence: 26 July 1820; Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "He is desirous of obtaining a lease of Lot Number Nine in the eighth Concession of the township of Sidney in the Midland District and by leave to offer Alexander Chisholm of the township of Sidney, a Capt. of Militia, as his security for the payments of the Rents when they shall become due. ... Sidney. 26 July 1820 ... Alex Chisholm .." (per Crown Land Petiton 1606, Alexander D. Chisholm)
    Note: Alexander D. Chisholm came from Charlottenburgh and is asking that Col. Alexander Chisholm (1771-1834),who lived at the Front of Sidney, to be accepted as his security for the lease of land that would become Glen Ross at Chisholm's Rapids on the Trent River in the north end of Sidney Township. This suggest a close family tie between these two Alexander's. What might it be?5
  • Residence: 13 November 1823; Conc 1 Lot 21, Thurlow Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records (G843 B&S) show that Alexander Chisholm sold 150 acres of lot 21, conc 1, Thurlow to Leonar???? dated Nov 13 1823.4
