It was small - two streets leading down the hill to the bay, and the shore road, which was called Morden Street, in Northport, through the middle. The atmosphere in Northport was shipping. There were fishing boats, passenger steamboats on their way between Kingston and Prescott, lake and ocean schooners bringing livestock and goods, picking up grain."
    "The first people in the village were James Morden and Isaac Demille in 1791. The Solmes's came soon after and the Spragues in 1812. Morden's is said to have been the first house in Sophiasburgh. James's son Richard Morden kept the village's first store. By 1850 there were three stores and a blacksmith shop. Samuel Sprague was postmaster. Northport had one church, Methodist, one school, and was widely considered one of the prettiest villages in Canada West."

    Following is what I found here re George King - and almost nothing else. It is full of errors but provides some interesting insights. It is the first and only place I have seen Henrietta's father's name and that George was definitely in Kingston before coming to Sophiasburgh.
    King (Leroy) family of P.E.Co. & Brighton:
    George King born U.S.A., res Kingston by 1832, but settled Sophiasburgh 1830, and also resided in Crofton, Ont. His wife, Henrietta Jenkins, d/o William a shoemaker from Northport. Henrietta born Sophiasburgh. Married Oct. 16, 1832. (From Presbyterian Register). Three Children:

  • Note: after October 1832; Sophiasburgh Twp., Northport, Prince Edward Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records show that William Jenkins purchased 14 acres of Lot 26 Conc I, Village of Northport from Peter Demill
  • Residence: before 16 October 1832; Kingston, Ontario; Marriage record shows that George King was from Kingston
  • Residence: after 16 October 1832; Sophiasburgh Twp, Northport, Prince Edward, Ontario; After his marriage George King lived in Northport, Sophiasburgh. He was a young man of 21 and had no property so he likely worked at the docks of Northport which was a booming port town at that time. Of course, he could have worked as a farm labourer in the area although he would not likely have lived in Northport in that case.
    William Jenkins owned property in Northport and was a shoemaker so it is easy to see how young George King could have met and married Henrietta soon after coming to the small village.
  • Note: after 16 October 1832; Sophiasburgh Twp., Prince Edward Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records do not include any transaction for George King in Northport or Concessions I and II of Sophiasburgh (West of Green Point)
  • Note: 1835; Sophiasburgh Twp., Prince Edward Co., Ontario; The date "1835" and the name "King" are written on the inside of the front cover of a miniature Wesleyan Methodist Hymnal which was passed down through our grandfather, Lloyd Ames. In that year the King family would have been living in Sophiasburgh, maybe at Northport where some of the children are said to have been born.4
  • Note: 5 June 1838; Picton, Prince Edward Co., Ontario; George and Henrietta King are witnesses for the marriage of John Covert and Susan Laroy, both of Picton, June 5, 1838, per District Marriage Register, Prince Edward Co. (from Ontario Registers CD)5
  • Residence: 1844; Cramahe Twp, Northumberland Co., Ontario; The William Henry King story says that George King moved his family to Cramahe Township (later Brighton) in 1844. They may have rented or lived with someone else until George purchased the land north of Codrington in 1846.

  • Census: 1846; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Census of Newcastle District for 1846, 1848 and 1850 shows George King living in Carmahe Township. Microfilm # M5911, Provincial Archives of Ontario, Pg. 18.
  • Note*: 1846; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; "The first brick house at Codrington was built by George King, Lloyd Ames' great-great grandfather. It was later occupied by the residents Harrison King, Walter Ames, Lloyd Ames, Mary & Charles Buchanan and now Lawrence Banford. This house and the other three he built for his sons are the only houses with a fireplace."
    "George King burned the brick to build three houses, one for each of his sons. Gordon McGee, Arthur Ames and Carman Ruttan live in those houses now."
    (from pages 87 and 88 of As The Crow Flies, by Mrs. Leulla M. Austin, published by Mika Publishing, 1976)
    Note: Charles Buchanan tells of digging up many shards of brick in the garden to the south east of the house. Lloyd Ames said that this is where the brick was burned for the houses that George King built.
  • Residence*: 26 January 1846; Conc 9 Lot 2, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; 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.6

  • Illness*: 1849; Cramahe Twp., Codrington, Newcastle District, Upper Canda; The account about William Henry King says that for several years before William went off to Normal School in 1851 his father George was ill with dispesia and the two yongsters, William and Isaac, handled the farm work until the man of the house was able to carry the weight again. This suggests the energy and gumption of both boys and possibly the close relationship that may have developed by neccessity between them.
  • Census: 1850; Conc 9 Lot 2, Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; 1850 Census: George King, Lot 2 Conc 9, agriculture, owner, 10 people; 9 Canadian born, 1 U.S. born, 1 male under 1y, 1 male 2 - 5y, 1 male 5 - 10y, 1 female 5 - 10y, 1 male 10 -14y, 1 female 10 - 14y, 2 single males 14 - 18y, 1 male birth in previous year, 1 male under 5 died in previous year, 2 males & 3 females attending school; 175 acres, 80 in crops, 20 in pasture, 75 in wood, value cleared 2.1 lbs., wild 1.1 lbs; production: wheat 60 acres, 1800 bu., peas, 12 acres 250 lbs., potatoes 2 acres 200 lbs., buchwheat 90 lbs., 10 tons hay, 400 lbs. maple sugar, 80 lbs. wool, 40 yds. fulled cloth, 40 yds. 70y flannell or unfulled cloth, 2 barrels beef/pork, 5 neat cattle, 5 horses, 13 sheep, 3 hogs
    Note: This land is the South 100 acres of the West Half of Lot 2; it is on the east side of No. 30 Highway and the north side of Alison St.
  • Note: 1851; Brighton Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Codrington was named in 1851 by one of its early residents, a Mr. King, who dubbed it in honour of an English colonel in the Crimean War"; from doc at Codrington Public Library
    Note: George King likely named the village as he was one of the earliest settlers there. However, it probably happend in the late 1850's after the Crimean War was over and the stories about Col. Codrington would have been written up in newspapers.
  • Census*: 1852; Brighton Twp, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 41 at 1851 Census: King, George, 41, farmer, b. USA, EM, farmer ,married; Henrietta, 41, b. Cda., EM, married; William, 19, b. Cda., lab., single; Isaac, 16, lab.; Louisa, 14; Charles, 12; Amelia, 10; David, 7; Harisson, 5; George, 3; Melissa, 1; Manson, 1 (1851 Census: Brighton Twp.)
    Note: Brighton Township was created January 1, 1852 so the 1851 Census was taken during 1852 and maybe later. We can see evidence of this in the King family because the last two King children were born in September 1851 and they appear in the 1851 Census.7
  • Note: 30 June 1852; Trenton Anglican Church Diocese, Ontario; Baptism records in the Trenton Anglican Diocese show that George N. and Henrietta King took 7 of their 10 children to be baptised by Rev. W. Bleasdale, on June 30, 1852.

  • Note: 1844; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; The King family moved from Northport, Sophiasburg Township, Prince Edward County to Cramahe Township in Northumberland County. The land where they settled would become part of the newly created Brighton Township in 1852 and the southern edge of their property would be sold for village lots as the village of Codrington took shape in the 1860s and 1870s.
  • Census: 1851; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 16 at 1851 Census: see George King7
  • Occupation*: 6 January 1858; Postmaster, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; The National Archives of Canada show that Isaac King was Postmaster at Codrington from June 1, 1858 until March 1859 when it says he "Left the province". This matches with information from William Henry King's murder trial that Isaac was in California at the time of his arrest, trial and execution.
    Note: Sorry. This does not altogether match. Sarah King died Nov 4 1858 and the trial was April 4 1859, hanging June 9th. It is hard to imagine that Isaac would have gone to California AFTER his brother was arrested. Maybe he left in Sep 1858 or so and would have been gone for the whole thing - the dates re the post office lagging in the records???
  • Residence: 11 February 1859; Michigan Bar, California, U.S.A.; "To My Parents; Dear Parents, to you who has been so kind and who has undergone so many troubles and heardships for my own good, I feel it my duty as I have arived at the age of twenty three to give you the credit and Honour off my ariving to this age without one blemished or guilty stain to encounter. Cal. Michigan Bar - Isaac N. King; Saturday, February 11/59" (below a blank space:)"Far from my native land I strove .. Who has watched me through night and day and to my parents I will prove to you my debts I never can pay read the first and third together" (This text was found on a small loose sheet of paper inside the notebook where William Henry King (Isaac's older brother) wrote "A Last Prayer" for his mother on June 6 1859, 3 days before he was hanged at Cobourg for poisoning his wife.)
    Note: We know Isaac was in California but the address appears say "Cal. Michigan Bar".
  • Note: March 1859; California, U.S.A.; Between March 1859 and 1861 Isaac King went to California. The account of William Henry King's story mentions that William got a letter from Issac who was in California. The list of Postmasters says that the reason for leaving was "Leaving the country".
    Note: The John Goodfellow story tells that several of his sons went to California with a few others from the area in 1859 and several others some years later. No mention is made of Isaac King, although they were close neighbours. The timing is not right for Isaac to have been one of the early bunch that went per the Goodfellow story - maybe the later ones.
  • Note: May 1859; Court House, Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Ontario; The account of William Henry King's trial includes diary entries from one Alexander Stewart who was assigned to guard William while he was in jail awaiting execution. His words include the following entries:
    Soon after the trial: "Mr. Bennett had two letters, one from a brother in California who heard of his imprisonment and expected to hear of his acquital, expressed his (William's) regret to think how it would vex him to hear if his verdict and sentence. 'My poor Isaac, how it will wound your heart, you need to feel so proud of me.'"
    Only a few days before the end: "The Judge, his counsel, his brother Isaac in California, and numerous others received letters from King during the weeks prior to his execution."

I think I have recorded man of the descendants of John D. and Margaret - as well as all of John D.'s and Amelia's - and I 've met and visited many of them. Very interesting!
