  • Immigration*: 1797; Haldimand Twp., Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "Raised in New Hampshire, Zacheus Burnham came in 1797 to central Upper Canada, a move facilitated by his cousin Aaron Greeley, an agent for the settlement of the Newcastle District under the township land grant scheme initiated by Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe*. Arriving first in Haldimand Township, Zacheus soon moved to nearby Hamilton Township where several of his brothers would eventually settle."

    "Where Cobourg stands today was once cedar swamp. As a result, the town was slower in becoming established than some of the adjacent centres along Lake Ontario. A few settlers had arrived, however, as early as 1798. Among them were four Burnham brothers, Asa, Zaccheus, John and Mark, who with their sister Hannah emigrated from New Hampshire. In the ensuring years, the Burnhams became one of the most influential families in the area." from "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto", Margaret McBurney & Mary Byers, 1979, pg. 172
    "Zacheus Burnham, of Otonabee Township, was born in St Thomas, Ont., in the year 1840, where he lived till 1851, when his people moved to the Town of Peterborough, and has lived in or near the same ever since. He was married, 1872, to Martha Stewart Fowlis, a native of the State of New York. Mr. Burnham is one of the descendants of Robert Burnham, Esq., who according to some old records in his possession, in the year 1642, held the manor of Billington in the County of Kent, England. The grandfather of the subject of this sketch was born in the State of New Hampshire, in 1777, and in 1798 emigrated to Haldimand County, Ontario. Here he was one of the first settlers amnd may be counted among the pioneers of that locality. Mark Burnham, father of our subject, and son of Zacheus, last named, was born in Cobourg, Ontario; was educated in Oxford, England; afterwards lived in St. Thomas; then in 1851, he moved, with his family, consisting of four sons and one daughter, to Peterborough, where the surviving family still reside. He officiated as clergyman in the Church of England during the greater part of his life." from page 630 of "History of the County of Peterborough", published 1884, in the section "Otonabee Township".

  • Note*: circa January 1827; Scott's Mills, Peterborough Co., Upper Canada; "During the winter of 1826-27 Sir Peregrine Maitland, Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada, Colonel Talbot, the Hon. John Beverley Robinson, the Hon. Zacheus Burnham, and James Gray Bethune of Cobourg travelled by sleigh to Rubidge's house near what is now the village of Keene, where they were welcomed by Peter Robinson, Captain Rubidge and many of the settlers. The Lieutenant-Governor visited some of the Irish in Ennismore, and received deputations from other township at "Government House" - Robinson's commodious dwelling at Scott's Mills." from "Early Life in Upper Canada" by Edwin C. Guillet, pg. 67.8
  • Residence: 6 May 1840; Conc 4 Lot 1, Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; Land Registry Records (Patent) show that Zacheus Burnham obtained the Crown Patent for "all 32 acres" of Conc 4, Lot 1, Cramahe Twp. ITS Date May 6 1840. (Ontario Land Registry records in Onland, Brighton Two,, Conc 4, Lot 1)
    Note: This is a partial lot on the border between Murray and Cramahe Twp.'s, which would later become part of Brighton Twp. Not sure why this record, and several others mentions "All 32 acres", since the actuallot is around 100 acres, just long and narrow. ??
    Note: Somehow, the propety was transferred (although no record here) from Zacheus Burnham to Benjamin Davidson of the Brighton area. The next record shows this lot passed in the Will of Benjamin Davidson to his son Peter Davidson and his wife Mary Davidson.9
  • Residence: 26 January 1846; Conc 9 Lot 2, Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Land Registry Records (B&S 7911) show that George King purchased 100 acres of the West Half of Lot 2, Concession 9, Brighton Twp. from Zaccheus Burnham, ITS Date Jan 26 1846.
    Note: Lot 2 runs along the east side of the highway north of Codrington. The parcel of 100 acres included in this purchase would be the western half of that 200 acre lot.
    Note: This was west of the Cramahe/Murray Town Line so it was in Cramahe Township until Brighton Township was formed in 1850.9
  • Residence: 25 January 1855; Conc 8 Lot 2, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Land Registry Records (Grant A311) show that Thomas Halloran purchased 115 acres of the North part of Lot 2, Conc. 8, Brighton Twp., from Hon. Zaccheus Burnham. ITS Date Jan 25 1855.9
