He commenced his career in 1845 as a general storekeeper, and successfully carried on the same for over thirty years, and meanwhile he owned land operated a flour mill and five saw mills, besides having a large interest in shipping; building two vessels and buying others, which he used for the purpose of transporting grain and timber. In the accumulation of landed property, he eventually became possessed of twenty-one hundred acres, which area perhaps represents the largest amount of land owned by a single individual at that time, although his two brothers control large and valuable interests in agricultural land." pg. 629, "Pioneer Life on the Bay of Quinte", Oct. 6, 2004.10

  • Residence: circa 1868; Millbank or Proctor House, Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Certainly the finest building in Brighton is Proctor House, a magnificent Italianate structure just north of town, west of Young Street. Until recently this building stood abandoned and in danger of demolition. Its last residents, two Proctor sisters, had moved out in 1960. But a group of concerned citizens, unwilling to see the heritage home deteriorate further, organized a campaign which saw Proctor House re-opened as an official historic site in 1976. It is being restored to the 1840-1880 period, and will be open as a museum five months of the year. The man for whom this splendid house was built was John E. Proctor, one of Brighton's leading citizens. He owned mills, land, ships for export of lumber, the Proctor Hotel, and a store. .... Proctor's house was first called Millbank after his mills to the north of it.

  • Residence: 1878; Conc C Lot 33, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; County Atlas Map: The map on page 104 (2004 version) called "Plan of Brighton Northumberland Co." has a very clear representation of Gosport and the wharf at the east end of Price Street. It shows "J. E. Proctor" on 6 acres at the end. A. Covell is the next lot west. When looking for Proctor in the index, there are many but not this one. There is a 6 acres line item but with no detail beside it. Very odd.16

Taylor and Oates of Toronto. They will be represented here by Messrs. Alex McCallum and S. W. Donaghy, who have leased Mr. J. E. Proctor’s storehouse, and will also store a part of their grain in J.

  • Note: 1887; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "In 1887 John E. Proctor was exporting large quantities of lumber and grains to American ports on the south shore of Lake Ontario, Oswego, Rochester, NY, Lockport and Waterton. He decided the American sailing ships that were delivering his produce were charging exhorbitant freight rates. He mortgaged his farms and between 1887 and 1890 built three (probably more) sailign ships. The flag ship was the ERC Proctor, named after his eldest son, Dr. E. R. C. Proctor, who had been educated at Upper Canada College at U. of T., entered practice in Toronto, was thrown from his horse and broke his neck. These ships plied the Great lakes and proved very profitable. Much of his trade was carried out with his brother William C. Proctor, John S. Proctor's grandfather, who had established a lumber, grain and dry goods wholesale import business under the name of McKinnon, Proctor & McCaul on Front Street in Toronto (where the Royal York Hotel now stands) and which was then warf and lake front property. In September of 1892(?) a hurricane (similar to Huricane Hazel in 1960?) struck the Great Lakes and much shipping was lost including my Grandfather's three ships. Fortunately with little loss of life, as they were all driven ashore - the ribs of the E.R.C. Proctor can still be seen in the marsh on the north shore of Brighton (Gosport) Bay - the anchor is in the museum at Presqu'ile Park. This disaster brok my Grandfather's health and my Father, Charles Russell Weller Proctor, the second youngest son, took over the management of the business. He was at this time living at home and the manager of the Standard Bank at Brighton." from Autobiography of John W. Proctor, pg. 6.17

The body was placed on a door for the post mortem examination conducted by Dr.'s P. R. Proctor, P. Gross of Brighton, and Dr. James Gilchrist, of Cobourg. Dr. Proctor observed, "The body presented a rather healthy appearance for one deceased. Body and organs were all in a healthy condition except lungs which presented a congested appearance but not sufficient to cause death. Womb contained a healthy foetus. Bowels and rectum colored as if inflamed from something which had passed through them. Surface of stomach congested - condition scarcely amounted to inflammation, it was a state of engorement. A dark fluid was found inside the stomach." Dr. Gross added, "I did not discover any signs of ulceration in the neck of the womb." from "Fit to Be Tied: Ontario's Murderous Past" by Terry Boyle, pg. 136

  • Note*: 1887; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "In 1887 John E. Proctor was exporting large quantities of lumber and grains to American ports on the south shore of Lake Ontario, Oswego, Rochester, NY, Lockport and Waterton. He decided the American sailing ships that were delivering his produce were charging exhorbitant freight rates. He mortgaged his farms and between 1887 and 1890 built three (probably more) sailign ships. The flag ship was the ERC Proctor, named after his eldest son, Dr. E. R. C. Proctor, who had been educated at Upper Canada College at U. of T., entered practice in Toronto, was thrown from his horse and broke his neck. These ships plied the Great lakes and proved very profitable. Much of his trade was carried out with his brother William C. Proctor, John S. Proctor's grandfather, who had established a lumber, grain and dry goods wholesale import business under the name of McKinnon, Proctor & McCaul on Front Street in Toronto (where the Royal York Hotel now stands) and which was then warf and lake front property. In September of 1892(?) a hurricane (similar to Huricane Hazel in 1960?) struck the Great Lakes and much shipping was lost including my Grandfather's three ships. Fortunately with little loss of life, as they were all driven ashore - the ribs of the E.R.C. Proctor can still be seen in the marsh on the north shore of Brighton (Gosport) Bay - the anchor is in the museum at Presqu'ile Park. This disaster brok my Grandfather's health and my Father, Charles Russell Weller Proctor, the second youngest son, took over the management of the business. He was at this time living at home and the manager of the Standard Bank at Brighton." from Autobiography of John W. Proctor, pg. 6.11
