He was called to the Bar, and practiced there, and held also the situation of Deputy Ranger of his Majesty's Woods and Forests in Upper Canada, under the deputation from Sir John Wentworth of Nova Scotia - an office of very trifling emolument." from page 5 of "Life of Sir John Beverly Robinson, Bart., Chief Justice of Upper Canada. With a pref. by George R. Parking, by Charles Walker Robinson (1836-1924)(youngest son of Hon. Sir John Beverly Robinson (1791-1863) - downloaded from Ontario Archives - https://archive.org/details/lifeofsirjohnbev00robiuoft
  • Note*: 1792; Upper Canada; "Christopher Robinson (1763 – November 2, 1798) was an American-born soldier, lawyer and political figure in Upper Canada.
    Early life: He was born in Virginia in 1763, the son of Oxford-educated Peter Robinson (ca 1719–1768), and nephew of John Robinson, Speaker of the Virginia House of Burgesses, and loyalist leader Beverly Robinson (ca 1722–1792). He was also a close relation of John Robinson (bishop of London) (1650–1723), a senior Anglican cleric and influential diplomat. Born in Virginia to one of the British colony's most influential families, it has been contended that he was educated at the College of William and Mary, although no evidence exists to support that fact. In fact, his early life remains shrouded in mystery and genealogical legerdemain. What is known is that at some point after his father's death in 1768, he moved to New York, likely to his cousin Beverley's household and was there at the beginning of the American Revolution. On June 26, 1781, he was commission an Ensign in the Queen's Rangers under John Graves Simcoe and served through the surrender of the British army at Yorktown, until 1783. Canada: He retired at half pay in New Brunswick, but moved to Quebec in search of employment. In 1792, Simcoe, now Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, offered him a post as a minor surveyor general and he moved to Kingston. In 1794, he received his license to practice law and, in 1796, he was elected to the 2nd Parliament of Upper Canada representing Ontario & Addington. In 1797, he played a role in establishing the Law Society of Upper Canada. He died suddenly at York (Toronto) in 1798. William Fairfield took his place in the legislative assembly in June 1799. Robinson in 1784 in New Brunswick married Esther Sayre, daughter of Rev. John Sayre, who came to the Colonies on behalf of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. She died in 1827. His sons included: John Beverley, a lawyer, judge and political figure in Upper Canada; Peter, political figure in who played an important role in promoting immigration from Ireland to Upper Canada
    William Benjamin, a political figure in Upper Canada and Canada West" per family tree of Robert Candy, May 14 2017.2

  • Note*: 1784; England; William Jarvis joined John Graves Simcoe’s Queen’s Rangers in 1777. He was wounded at the battle of Spencer’s Tavern in Virginia on 26 June 1781 and was commissioned cornet on 25 Dec. 1782. At the cessation of the American Revolutionary War he went on half pay and returned to Connecticut. There the hostility to the loyalists often resulted in violence, and on one occasion Jarvis was injured." from Dictionary of Canadian Biogrpahy, William Jarvis - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/jarvis_william_5E.html?print=13
  • Residence*: 1792; Newark, Niagara Dist., Upper Canada; "In 1784 or 1785 he travelled to England where he secured Simcoe as a patron. Simcoe recommended him in 1791 to the Home secretary, Henry Dundas, for the positions of provincial secretary and clerk of the Executive Council of the newly established province of Upper Canada. Although Jarvis did not receive the clerkship, he was, however, rewarded with the more important, prestigious, and lucrative post of provincial secretary and registrar. In the summer of 1792 he arrived in Upper Canada as part of Lieutenant Governor Simcoe’s entourage. Soon after he settled in the capital of Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake)." from Dictionary of Canadian Biogrpahy, William Jarvis - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/jarvis_william_5E.html?print=13
  • Residence: 1798; York, York Co., Upper Canada; "From its beginning Jarvis belonged to the province’s tiny governing circle, first at Newark and after 1798 at York. His career was marked by the internecine bickering which characterized this group as its members struggled to consolidate their positions and to secure places for their children. Although Jarvis’s salary was £300, it was supplemented by fees. In 1794 he came into conflict with Attorney General John White* over the division of the lucrative fees on land patents. Jarvis drew up and registered all legal instruments and was responsible for the cost of parchment and wax. White, ever in search of additional income, claimed half of Jarvis’s fees on the grounds that the attorney general was responsible for the crown’s legal matters. He was successful, yet Jarvis still maintained the full burden of expense. Indeed he lost money on each grant processed thereafter and he petitioned in vain for relief until 1815 when he was granted £1,000. His financial problems were not, however, entirely the fault of White or an uncaring Executive Council. At times, changes in land regulations invalidated his work and often he himself was inefficient and careless. In 1800 Lieutenant Governor Peter Hunter discovered that many of the deeds issued by Jarvis contained irregularities such as erasures and corrections, or were drawn up on paper rather than parchment. Hunter censured him and provided strict instructions for the preparation of documents – instructions which by Jarvis’s estimate rendered useless £475 worth of deeds." from Dictionary of Canadian Biogrpahy, William Jarvis - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/jarvis_william_5E.html?print=13
  • Note: circa 1815; York, York Co., Upper Canada; "William Jarvis lived well, if not within his means, on his 100-acre park lot on the outskirts of York. Like so many of the early official families, he sought to ensconce his offspring in the developing society of York and Upper Canada. His eldest son, Samuel Peters Jarvis*, became deputy provincial secretary to Duncan Cameron* in 1827, and later chief superintendent of Indian affairs. Two of his daughters married George* and Alexander* Hamilton, sons of the wealthy Queenston merchant Robert Hamilton, and a third married William Benjamin Robinson*. William Jarvis was not a central figure in the York élite. Though he contested the riding of Durham, Simcoe, and the East Riding of York against Samuel Heron, Henry Allcock, and John Small* in 1800 and briefly supported Judge Robert Thorpe* in 1806, he was not particularly interested or involved in politics. He was a ranking member of the province’s small administration and his career illustrates some of the problems which plagued the province in its early years." from Dictionary of Canadian Biogrpahy, William Jarvis - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/jarvis_william_5E.html?print=13

Jarvis bought a log hut and immediately began to build an addition, a matter of some urgency as his wife was pregnant.
    By 1830 Hannah Jarvis was living most of the time with her daughter Hannah Owen Hamilton ( the wife of Alexander Hamilton) in Queenston,helping her cope with a big house and frequent pregnancies. She was there in 1839 when Hamilton died leaving his pregnant wife and nine children penniless. Their sole income was her pension of $100 per year. Hannah Hamilton took in sewing earning 2s6d a shirt, while her mother now in her late 70's looked after the house and young children, assisted by her older granddaughters, and did all the work in the poultry yard and vegetable garden except the spring digging. She who once had 8 servants and slaves, now spent her days washing and scrubbing ,ironing, mending and cooking. She had owned the first carriage in Upper Canada now traveled in a borrowed lumber wagon. She died September 20, 1845 at the age of 82. She was my fourth great grandmother. ...David Ricketts O.N., UE, CIP, CPD" per GEDCOM of Christina Parsons (tinkerbelle1025@gmail.com) Nov 16 2016.1
