(Note: The town would have been Newark, where Niagara-on-the-Lake is today. It was the capital of Upper Canada until 1796 (more or less) when Lt. Gov. John Graves Simcoe had the capital moved to York, north across the lake.)

  • Marriage*: circa 1817; Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; Elizabeth Gibson is shown as wife of Josiah Wellington per GEDCOM of Kaz, Mar 15 2010.
    Note: Elizabeth Gibson married Josiah Wellington after her first husband Charles Selleck had died in 1809. She appears in census records as Widow Elizabeth Selleck as late as 1816. This would explain why she appears as Elizabeth Wellington in the 1861 and 1871 Census with her son Isaac M. Wellington.; Principal=Josiah Dix Wellington1,7
  • Death*: circa 1873; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Unable to find Death Reg'n. for Elizabeth.
  • Married Name: 12 February 1797; Selleck1
  • Note: 7 October 1804; Newcastle, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; HMS Speedy left York for Newcastle in the evening of Sunday, Sept 7, 1804, having about twenty passengers, most planning to conduct the trial of Ogetonicut, for the death of death of John Sharp at Lake Scugog in the spring. The Speed would not make it to Newcastle, being lost in a storm on the 8th.
  • Note*: April 1809; Upper Canada; Elizabeth Gibson's husband died - Charles Selleck.
  • Note: circa April 1813; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "It may be surprising to know that during 1813 a brigade of British regulars stationed at Presqu'ile was detained by a storm. I. M. Wellington summarized these events: "In the spring of 1813, all war news was carried in dispatches on horseback. Night and day the trooper was galloping through the country from post to post with a dispatch to be forwarded to the next trooper, who was ready to rush away with the package. Nearly all the young men of the country had enlisted in defence of their happy homes and the British troops were sent forward to aid in repelling their enemies. All this time a Brigade of British regular was detained at Presqu'ile Point by a storm. The commisariat being low, the widow's last cow was slaughtered for beef. However, the Colonel paid her in goods about twice the price of the cow saying "she could replace it with another one"." This widow was Mrs. Selleck who later married Joseph Wellington, the father of I. M. Wellington." per page 61 at The Tobey Book.
    Note: The parents of I. M. Wellington were Josiah Wellington and Elizabeth (Gibson)Selleck. Captain Charles Selleck died about 1809 and widow Elizabeth Selleck is recorded in census records as late as 1816.7
  • Census: 1814; Murray Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; 1814 Census: Elizabeth Selleck; 1 male over 16, 1 male under 16; 1 female over 16

  • Census: 1816; Murray Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; 1816 Assessment: Elizabeth Selleck; 3 acres cult.
  • Married Name: circa 1817; Wellington
  • Note: circa 1820; Murray Twp., Newcastle, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "In 1897, W. Brother, I. M. Wellington died at the age of 86. He was the first white child born at Presqu'ile. Throughout this book the reader will have found references to this remarkable man, as he was the author of the article quoted from the Ontario Historical Society's Paper and records - Vol. V, 1904. I. M. Wellington was also important in the Masonic Lodge, for he lectured before them on various occasions, and wrote a brief history of the United States. Mr. Wellington's mother was, previous to her second marriage, the widow of Captain Selleck." from page 528 of The Tobey Book.
    Note: I. M. Wellington was born in 1821 and it would be unlikely he was the first at Presqu'ile Point. Families lived there from at least 1802.7
  • Residence*: circa 1820; Murray Twp., Newcastle, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "The story of the town of Newcastle is most intimately joined up with the wreck of the vessel Speedy. In connection with this story two names stand out prominently. These are Captain Selleck and I. M. Wellington. Mr. Wellington gave the first account of the events surrounding the wreck of the vessel. The Brighton Ensign of June 25, 1897 spoke of this great historian: "On December 11, 1821, the first white child was born on Presqu'ile Point. That child was Isaac M. Wellington, the third son of the late Joseph Wellington and Elizabeth Gibson Selleck. His father Joseph Wellington was a United Empire Loyalist and his mother previous to her marriage to Mr. Wellington was the widow of Captain Selleck."" from page 29 of The Tobey Book.
    Note: Isaac Maitland Wellington (1821-1897) was the son Josiah Wellington (1780-1865) and Elizabeth Gibson, who had been previously married to Captain Charles Selleck. It is very doubtful if I. M. Wellington was the first white child born at Presqu'ile since families lived there from at least 1802. I. M. Wellington's Death Registration says he was born in Haldimand Township which may be possible since Josiah Wellington owned land near Grafton during this time.7
  • Residence: 20 November 1834; Lot 4, North Side of Water St., Newcastle, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; Land Registry Records (Patent) show that Elizabeth Wellington obtained the Patent from the Crown for 1 acre in f Lot No. 4, north side of Water St. ITS Date: Nov 20 1834.

    Note: This looks like Elizabeth (Selleck Gibson) Wellington with a servant or relative, Mary Asselstines, age 26. This is in Brighton Village, just below William Orser, tailor and above Robert Clark, wheelwright.5
  • Census: April 1861; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Age 81 at 1861 Census: see Isaac M. Wellington (son)
    Note: In the 1861 Census, Elizabeth (Selleck, Gibson) Wellington is clearly shown to be a widow, living with her son Isaac Maitland Wellington. On the other hand, Josiah Dix Wellington, who was her second husband, appears to be in the 1861 Census with son John Wesley Wellington in Rawdon Twp.. We have a date in 1865 for his death. Oddly enough, we see Josiah Wellington of the same age in the 1851 Census in Percy Twp. with a wife named Jane. Is there something wrong here???3
  • Census: April 1871; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 91 at 1871 Census: see Isaac M. Wellington (son)2

  • Death*: April 1809; Newcastle, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Before a council of settlers was formed the needy were dependent on gaining help directly from their neighbours. An incident occurred in 1809 which aptly illustrates this type of action. Captain Selleck had died in April of that year and his widow was left with a large family of small children." from page 49 of The Tobey Book.

  • Note: circa 1780; Connecticut, U.S.A.; "That your petitioner, during the late American war, served in His Majesty's marine Department, as a Commissioned Officer, with the rank and pay of Lieutenant in the army, on board of the armed Boats commanded by Colonel Hubbell." from a petition for land by Charles Selleck, July 25, 1795, while living in Newark, Upper Canada. (See item by that date)
    Note: This makes it clear that Charles Selleck, later of Newcastle, Presqu'ile Point, serviced with the British during the war, her mentioning Colonel Hubbell, a member of a large Connecticut family active in the military well before this war.
  • Note*: 20 June 1782; Norwalk, Fairfield Co., Connecticut, U.S.A.; "The most probable is: He was a Lieutenant in the British Army who stayed in Canada and became a Ship's Master or Captain of a freighter.

    Note: I. M. Wellington said in his story about Presqu'ile that "Very soon thereafter Capt. Sellcck, an Englishman, the owner of a schooner called the Lady Murray, with his father-in- law, George Gibson, a ship carpenter, who had served an apprenticeship in the Woolwich dockyards in London, England, came with their families and settled at Presqu’isle."2

  • Note: 16 October 1797; Kingston, Upper Canada; "D 4 Cartwright to Thomas Barry, York; [Queen's University, Douglas Library, Cartwright Letter Books]; Kingston 16th Octr. 1797; I wrote of 28th & 29th. Sept. by the Industry Capt. McMullen, on Board of whom I shipped at the same time a very considerable part (113) of your goods, & a number of packages for Mr. Beasley & Mr. St. John. She sailed from hence on the evening of the 29th. Ulto. & not having reached York when Capt. Seleck18 left it, and the weather having been very boisterous, we are under very great anxiety for her safety. Should she unfortunately have been lost, you will be a sufferer to a large account." The Town of York 1793-1815, Commercial Development, page 112 & 113.
    Note: This letter, from Richard Cartwright, at Kingston, to Thomas Barry, at York, suggests that Captain Selleck was, at one point, sailing the "Industry" at this time.7
  • Note: 1799; Captain of Duchess of York, Upper Canada; "18 Captain Selleck served during the Revolution with the rank of Lieutenant in the arm on board armed gunboats. In 1799 he was Captain of the Duchess of York. In 1804 he owned a tavern near Presqu'Isle." The Town of York 1793-1815, page 113.
    Note: This is a footnote below a letter from Richard Cartwright, at Kingston, to Thomas Barry, at York, regarding a ship, which Capt. Selleck had been sailing?, which may not have arrived yet. It confirms the info from a land petition re his war service and captaincy of the Duchess of York in 1799.7
  • Note: 7 December 1799; Devil's Nose, New York, U.S.A.; "The effects of rough weather on the Lake at the close of 1799, as detailed by the Niagara Constellation of the 7th of December, will not be out of place. "On Thursday last," the Constellation says, "a boat arrived here from Schenectady, which place she left on the 22nd ult. She passed the York sticking on a rock off the Devil's Nose: no prospect of getting her off. A small deck-boat also, she reports, lately sprung a leak twelve miles distant from Oswego. The people on board, many of whom were passengers, were taken off by a vessel passing, when she instantly sank: cargo is all lost." The narrative then proceeds to say: "A vessel supposed to be the Genesee schooner, has been two days endeavouring to come in. It is a singular misfortune," the Constellation says, "that this vessel, which sailed more than a month ago from Oswego, laden for this place, has been several times in sight, and driven back by heavy gales." Toronto of Old, page 523.
  • Note: 1802; Newcastle, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "Very soon thereafter Capt. Selleck, an Englishman, the owner of a schooner called the Lady Murray, with his father-in- law, George Gibson, a ship carpenter, who had served an apprenticeship in the Woolwich dockyards in London, England, came with their families and settled at Presqu’isle." I. M. Wellington provided history of Presqu'ile which appeared in Ontario Historical Society, Papers & Records, Vol. 4-6, 1905, from Ed Burtt's collection.
  • Note: May 1802; Presqu'ile Point, Newcastle, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "The Newcastle town-site was on an equally ambitious scale, providing for a hospital, a church, a market square, and, to make it clear that this was not to be a temporary community, a graveyard. The pioneer settlers, including the Sellecks, Gibsons, Thompsons, and Simpsons, could probably foresee the day when Newcastle would be one of the principal urban centers in the province. The town's harbour, which naturally was to have a jetty and a lighthouse to mark the entrance, seemed an ideal one, even more sheltered than those at York and Kingston.
    Captain Charles Selleck and his father-in-law, George Gibson, were responsible for building the court-house complex. Once it was finished, Selleck and his wife were to operate both the court-house itself and its hotel. When Selleck was away on Lake Ontario with his schooner the Lady Murray, and court was not in session, his wife, assisted by her brother, would manage the hotel. She would also feed the prisoners who would soon be lodged in the new jail." Speedy Justice, Brendan O'Brien, page 858

  • Residence*: 3 December 1803; Murray Twp., Newcastle, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; " ... and Grant unto Charles Selleck of the Township of Niagara in the County of Lincoln in the District of Niagara, Mariner." A Land Grant signed on December 3, 1803, shows that Charles Selleck was considered to be living in the Township of Niagara, Lincoln County. The land being granted was one acre on the bay shore of Presqu;'isle to build a wharf.
    Note: I saw this mention of Niagara re Charles Selleck a few months before seeing the marriage record (Feb 2019) showing they were married in Niagara in 1797. He was a "mariner" or ship captain working around Lake Ontario so it could be he actually lived at Newark, the capital of Upper Canada, before moving to Presqu'ile. They moved first to Kingston, or Amherst Island, and then most info re Charles Selleck has him coming to Newcastle in 1802 when they built the court house and jail building, with he and his wife as custodians of the building.

    (This is the transcription of a digital image of the original Crown Grant paper document which was donated to Municipality of Brighton on Dec 17 2018 by Bud Guertin. I provided info re the content of the document to John Campbell so he could do a news story about it. Dec 18 2018)
  • Note: 7 October 1804; Newcastle, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; HMS Speedy left York for Newcastle in the evening of Sunday, Sept 7, 1804, having about twenty passengers, most planning to conduct the trial of Ogetonicut, for the death of death of John Sharp at Lake Scugog in the spring. The Speed would not make it to Newcastle, being lost in a storm on the 8th.
  • Note: 8 October 1804; Presqu'ile Point, Newcastle, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "The only writer who has attempted to reconstruct what probably happened is C.H.J. Snider. After speculating that Paxton would have fired a distress signal, Snider continues: 'The passengers below thought the vessel was signalling her arrival, and began donning their greatcoats in preparation for landing. "A few moments yet, Your Lordship, a few moments yet," called down Lieut. Paxton. More truly than he thought. A light blazed redly. Capt. Selleck, on the point, in answer to the gun, had set fire to a great pile of brush, logs, and chips from the newbuilt courthouse, to guide the vessel in." Speedy Justice, Brendan O'Brien, page 101.
    Note: C. H. J. Snider was known in the late 1890s and early 1900s for dramatic stories about ships and sailing on the Great Lakes. He painted the image of the Speedy that is so popular today. There is more than a little poetic license in his stories, which are entertaining, to be sure, but not to be considered historical.8
  • Note: 2 March 1805; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "In 1805 the government, deciding that the location of this capital was "inconvenient", moved the capital to the Cobourg area and abandoned Newcastle. The courthouse was subsequently used as a home by a Captain Selleck and his family. Timothy Thompson, Thomas Ward, Joseph Gibson, and David Rogers used other lots in Newcastle. However, because Newcastle did not become the district capital, the development of Presqu'ile (and Brighton) was delayed." from page 56 of "The Municipality of Brighton" published in 2006.
    Note: This addresses the situation at Presqu'ile Point after the sinking of the Speedy in October 1804.10
  • Note: circa 1808; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Ran cargo on Lake Superior with father of his wife." per GEDCOM of Rick, Mar 15 2010.
    Note: There was a thriving shipping industry running across Lake Ontario between Kingston and Upper Canada ports along the north shore of Lake Ontario and the US ports on the east end of Lake Ontario such as Sacket's Harbour and Richland on the Salmon River. George Gibson was involved along with Josiah Wellington and Samuel Sherwood and others. Presqu'ile Bay was a very active port in the early decades of the 1800's.

(Note: The town would have been Newark, where Niagara-on-the-Lake is today. It was the capital of Upper Canada until 1796 (more or less) when Lt. Gov. John Graves Simcoe had the capital moved to York, north across the lake.)

We’ve all heard it a hundred times; a family who moved in thirty years ago still called ‘The new people” by the County-born-and-bred. “Pride of Possession.” Nowhere stronger than in the County. My great grandfather, Bill McConnell, was bom and raised just outside Wellington. He lived a total of seventy-eight years on this earth and spent the final fifty-five of them, continuously, in Brighton Township, yet Prince Edward remained always, “Back Home.” Near the end (1904) he became increasingly child-like. Today, he would likely be diagnosed as suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, but back then, they didn’t know about that
    My Dad’s older brother once related to me how he remembered his grandfather in the final year of his life. On all too many days when supper was ready, Bill was not to be found. At these times, his daughter-in- law, my grandmother, would seek out my uncle and say, “Don, your grand dad’s wandered off again. He’s likely up over the hill. Be a good boy and run up and fetch him down for supper.” And the boy would do as bidden. He was all of six years old at the time. He said he always found the old man leaning on the same gatepost and staring off into space. Then he’d take him by the hand and lead him home. One winter night in that last year, his son (my grandfather, Oscar) awoke in the wee hours to the smell of smoke. It was coming from Bill’s bedroom. Oscar’s subsequent investigation revealed a fire (which had been rather carefully built) right on the bare floor beside his father’s bed. After he had doused the fire, cleaned up the charred, sodden mess and toted it outside, Oscar returned to his father’s bedside. “Dad, why in heaven’s name would you want to build a fire on the floor in the middle of your room?” “Well,” the old man admonished, T certainly couldn’t let my friends sit around here in the cold.” And he proceeded to point out and identify four of his neighbours he was convinced were seated about the room. Oscar said,
    “Well Dad, I think the boys would probably like to be on their way now.” And he then addressed each empty space by the appropriate name and ushered these non-existent visitors out of the bedroom and down the stair. It was apparently not long after this episode that one noon at dinner (and out of the blue), Bill announced, “Son, I want to be buried back home.” Oscar was patient in his reply. “Dad, we’re just poor hard-working farm people. ‘Back home’ is a long old trek. We couldn’t afford the time or the money it would take to get your remains to there. I’m afraid you’ll have to be content with local interment’
    Bill offered no comment but it was obvious he was not pleased. A few days later (and again, out of the blue), he informed Oscar, ‘Tve been thinking about what you said. I guess I’ll go along with it but I want it writ on my tombstone that that’s where I’m from.” If today, you take a drive west from Highway #30 along Telephone Road, after about a mile and a half or so, you’ll come to the Waite’s Cemetery on your right hand side. And if you walk straight north from the wrought-iron gate, you’ll very soon be treading on our family plot. The head-stone stands (leans) not far from the boundary fence.
