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., Upper Canada; 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, Frontenac Co., Upper Canada; Marriage record shows that George King was from Kingston
  • Residence: after 16 October 1832; Sophiasburgh Twp, Northport, Prince Edward Co., Upper Canada; 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., Upper Canada; 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., Upper Canada; 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

  • Residence: 1844; Cramahe Twp, Northumberland Co., Canada West; 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.

  • Note*: 1846; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; "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.

(Ontario Land Registry Records, Northumberland Co., Brighton Twp., Conc 9, lot 3, pg. 028 of 160 pg 01, copied from OnLand.ca by Dan, Feb 23 2022.)6
  • Illness*: 1849; Cramahe Twp., Codrington, Newcastle District, Canada West; 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., Canada West; 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: 1851; Cramahe Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "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.
  • Residence: 1 January 1852; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Brighton Township was created from he east part of Cramahe and the west part of Murray townships. The old border between Cramahe and Murray was just east of Codringtn. All of the King farm was in the Cramahe side, so Concession 9, lost 2, 3 and later, 4.
  • Census*: June 1852; Brighton Twp, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Age 41 at 1851 Census: King, George, 41, farmer, b. USA, EM, farmer ,married; Henrietta, 41, b.

    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, Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Canada West; 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.

It was built by Mr. (George) King, Lloyd Ames' (great) Grandfather. Mr. King's son Harrison owned the place later and then Walter Ames bought it. Eldon Robinson was born there on March 12, 1876, and his mother remembers being in it at least 18 years before that. Mr. King Sr. had passed on before Eldon Robinson was born."
