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.
  • Note*: 1891; Toronto, York Co., Ontario; "Hart inherited his father's farm implement manufacturing business and transformed it dramatically by means of mergers, spirited sales and advertising techniques. In 1870 he incorporated it into the "Massey Manufacturing Company", which relocated to Toronto, which he expanded significantly by purchasing the "Toronto Reaper and Mower Co", an American branch plant. In 1891 he merged with "A. Harris, Son and Co" and other Canadian rivals to form MASSEY-HARRIS CO. LTD., of which he was president 1891-6. His son Walter Edward Massey was president of the business from 1896-1901. In 1953 the company merged with the Ferguson companies to form MASSEY-HARRIS-FERGUSON LIMITED, modified to MASSEY-FERGUSON LIMITED in 1958.
    He inherited his father's sincere Methodist faith, along with his congenial, yet stern manner, and considered the business as a trust from God. On June 14, 1894 MASSEY MUSIC HALL (now known as MASSEY HALL) was opened, along with "Fred Victor Mission"; gifts to the city of Toronto from Hart Massey in memory of his sons Charles Albert (1848-1884) and Frederick Victor (1864-1890).

  • Note: 1892; Hart House, U. of T., Toronto, York Co., Ontario; "In 1892, Hart Massey had a memorial built to honour the death of his son Charles. This was a an extraordinary auditorium designed to be a "gift to aid in the development of the arts." It is called Massey Hall." per "The Massey Show" Celebrating the Massey Family and History By Myno Van Dyke, http://www.ytmag.com/articles/artint241.htm
  • Note: circa 1900; 915 King Street West, Toronto, York Co., Ontario; The old Massey Harris Building at 915 King Street West was incorporated into a new condo development during the period of heavy growth and concstructions in this area of King Street north of the Exhibition grounds, around 2004 and 2005. The building is on the south side of King Street midway between Shaw Street to the west and Strachan Ave. somewhat closer to the east. The main structure of the building was preserved and condo structure was built inside it, reaching a floor above the old building. In the process the outside of the old building was reconditioned and made to look very good. The old main entrance on the east side was maintained as the entrance to the condo although using modern glass doors and windows. An plaque listing WWI casualties who were members of the Massey Harris Company was found covered over during the renovations and it now looks over the east walkway beside the building just south of the main entrance.

She was a beauty, even in her eighties, and grandma was "smitten all of a heap" on a visit to the Massey clan in Watertown, where she was a guest.. It was an arduous courtship. Grandpa could be spared from his farm work in Grafton only in the winter, so over the frozen St. Lawrence River he would go. He made two drives in a bob-seligh from Grafton to Gloversville. It was three hundred miles each way. He may have lacked time for subtle persuasion but in those two six-hundred-mile trips he got his girl. Grandma married Hart Almerrin Massey in 1846 and she to her honeymoon ride to Grafton wrapped in a couple of big muskox robes behind the best light draft team in the Grafton stable." from pg. 41 of "When I Was Young" by Raymond Massey.
