  • Note: 1812; Annapolis, Maryland, U.S.A.; "Charles Rubidge’s mother died when he was eight, and one year later he entered the Royal Navy as a volunteer first class on an uncle’s ship. His far-flung naval service took him to the West Indies and, in 1812, to Annapolis, Maryland. He served with the Mediterranean and Atlantic fleets in the Napoleonic campaigns, was commissioned a lieutenant in 1812, and was twice wounded on active service." per Dictionary of Canadian Biography - Charles Rubidge (http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/rubidge_charles_10E.html)10
  • Residence: 1819; Hamilton Twp., Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Rubidge was placed on half pay in 1815.

  • Residence: April 1820; Otonabee Twp., Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "In the spring of 1820 he took his wife and three small children to the bush to become one of the first settlers in Otonabee Township. He settled on a 200-acre lot and acquired three other lots to make up the 800 acres allowed a naval officer of his rank. As a backwoods farmer Rubidge was one of the more successful of the half-pay officers who settled in the Peterborough district. He attributed his success in the early years to a cautious beginning, to “doing little, and that partly with my own hands,” until he gained experience." per Dictionary of Canadian Biography - Charles Rubidge (http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/rubidge_charles_10E.html)10
  • Note*: 1821; Otonabee Twp., Peterborough Co., Upper Canaa; "The surveyor's map in Trenton Past and Present by Nick and Helma Mika shows both the Roman Catholic Chapel and the school which, according to Rev.

The surveyor was Frederick Preston Rubidge (1806-1898), half brother of Captain Charles Rubidge, who was reported to be the second settler in Otonabee Township. In The Valley of the Trent Edwin C. Guillet gives a brief biographical sketch of F.P. Rubidge, quotes some of his poetry, and provides information about his various survey works." from History of South Murray Twp. by Margaret L. May, per Masonic Lodge archives, Dan Buchanan, August 1, 2018.
  • Note: 1825; Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "It is for his connection with emigration, which began in 1825 with the arrival of Peter Robinson’s settlers from southern Ireland, that Rubidge is best known. He assisted Robinson on a voluntary basis by placing the emigrants destined for Otonabee Township on their lots and directed the cutting of ten miles of bush road, briefly named after him, to serve as a winter supply route to the depot on the townsite of Peterborough. In common with several others he received a town and a park lot in Peterborough for his exertions." per Dictionary of Canadian Biography - Charles Rubidge (http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/rubidge_charles_10E.html)10
  • Residence*: 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. 67.3
  • Note: 1831; Peterborough, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "From 1831 until August 1832 Rubidge held a temporary appointment as a crown land agent at Peterborough with responsibility for seven townships in neighbouring parts of Newcastle District; he claimed that 4,000 new emigrants came to the district while he held this office. His duties as agent included supervision of the assistance given poor settlers at Lieutenant Governor Sir John Colborne*’s direction." per Dictionary of Canadian Biography - Charles Rubidge (http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/rubidge_charles_10E.html)10
  • Note: 1838; Peterborough, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "In 1838 Rubidge visited England and wrote A plain statement of the advantages attending emigration to Upper Canada, in which he stated that improvements over the past few years had demonstrated “that Canada is destined to become the comparatively rich as well as the poor man’s country,” and offered practical advice to those who decided to emigrate. The following spring Colonel G. F. Wyndham employed Rubidge to superintend the voyage of 181 emigrants from his Irish estates to Cobourg and to find work for them in Upper Canada." per Dictionary of Canadian Biography - Charles Rubidge (http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/rubidge_charles_10E.html)10
  • Residence: 1841; Peterborough Co., Canada West; "Rubidge played an active role in the community that grew up around him: he was appointed a justice of the peace in 1820, with his neighbours he petitioned for local improvements and helped raise funds for the Church of England, and he was chosen as a returning officer in four elections. He gave up active farming in 1841 when he was appointed registrar for the county of Peterborough, a post he held for more than 30 years. He was also promoted retired commander in the Royal Navy on 12 Oct. 1841, and in 1853 he received a Greenwich Hospital out-pension." per Dictionary of Canadian Biography - Charles Rubidge (http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/rubidge_charles_10E.html)10

    Note: Assuming the name below Charles and Margaret is "Toker" because some people by this name are buried in Little Lake Cemetery. The Elizabeth Toker here may be their daughter - dates work. Let's look into this...6
  • Note: 1867; Peterborough, Peterborough Co., Upper Canada; "Rubidge’s experience enabled him to speak with authority to those interested in assisting the emigration of paupers. Sir Robert John Wilmot-Horton printed information and opinions supplied by Rubidge in his Ireland and Canada (1839). Eight years later Rubidge gave evidence on backwoods settlement and assisted emigration to the 1847 select committee of the House of Lords on colonization from Ireland. Rubidge indirectly influenced the writing of the history of his district. Thomas Poole set a pattern in 1867, followed by others, when he relied on Rubidge for material describing Robinson’s emigrants and when he reflected Rubidge’s opinion in assessing the manner in which they were settled." per Dictionary of Canadian Biography - Charles Rubidge (http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/rubidge_charles_10E.html)10

  • Note: circa 1833; Chemong Lake, Peterborough Co., Ontario; "Bethune hired the Cobourg engineer F. P. Rubidge to survey the waterway, with special emphasis on the falls at Bobcaygeon. Rubidge came up with a scheme to build a lock there which would link Chemong Lake with the lower lakes down to Peterborough, and drew up the necessary plans. Unfortunately Rubidge didn't really know how to build a lock. First he misunderstood the actual low-water levels of the lakes involved. This is crucial. In order to have a proper lock it is necessary to have water at both ends. High-water levels are relatively easy to spot, but low-levels require a more prolonged survey. The bottom of the lower gate of any lock rests against a sill in order to resist the pressure of the water coming downstream. The workmen found that when the water was let out of the lock, the sill was high and dry above the lake below it. They also found that the rock in the area was so porous that when the lock was full the water simply seeped away into the ground. The lock was useless and had to be redone. But now the money was gone too." from Cobourg Peterboroough Railway 0- Opening Rice Lake 3, by Colin Caldwell.
