  • Note*: circa 1895; Main St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Bernice (Buchanan) Brown tells the story of Amelia Buchanan going to stay with the Samuel Nesbitt family in Brighton and coming home one day married to Ben Fraleigh. Needless to say, the family was not very happy about this development. Apparently Samuel Nesbitt was a friend of John Buchanan (Amelia's father) before he died in 1885; Bernice thinks he may have been the executor of John's estate. In any case, he offered to board Amelia in the Main St., Brighton home. (Dec. 28, 2006, Dan Buchanan visit with Bernice Brown)

  • Note: 1905; 12 Price Street, Gosport, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "A. Historical: The 'Nesbitt Home in Gosport' is situated on a 1/2-acre plot that is part of an 1831 Canada Company grant to John Nix for a 72-acre tract known as the Canal Reserve. In 1854 the tract was acquired by Daniel F. McKenzie, who is believed to have been built the house in 1870. Eventually the property was split into smaller parcels and in 1905 Samuel G. M. Nesbitt acquired 6 lots - 3 contiguous lots on the north side (with the house) and 3 on the south side of Price St. Following Samuel's death, the 6 lots and house were passed in 1939 to his wife, Marie Nesbitt. The property changed several times after that and in 1968 was severed into two parts, 3 lots on the north side and 3 lots on the south side of the street. In 2001 the north plot with the house was acquired by the present owners, Charlene Ann and Patrick Peter Rittwage." from Brighton Municipal Heritage Evaluation for Municipal Register sent to me by Catherine Stutt Dec 27 2015.

  • Note: 26 October 1914; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "The second contingent volunteers from Brighton were given a befitting farewell Monday last, when the citizens of the town congregated in the Opera House and demonstrated their appreciation of the loyalty that prompted the boys in enlisting to take part in upholding the flag that has ever stood for freedom and justice. an Appropriate program was arranged. Reeve R. J. Boes occupied the chair, and after a few brief remarks, called upon Reverends A. K. McLeod, Rural Dean Pickford, W. Elliott and S. H. Lamb in succession, all of whom addressed the gathering suitable to the occasion. On the platform with the boys were the members of the Village Council and Mr. Sam Nesbitt, M.P.P. (Bill Nesbitt's uncle). Fervent prayers for the boy's' welfare and safe return were offered. Near the conclusion of the proceedings Mr. Nesbitt was called on, and after an appropriate speech, presented each of the boys with a monogrammed wrist watch on behalf of the citizens of the Village and Township, and his personal gift in a sealed envelope, which he requested them not to open until they were on the train. Following this Mrs. McLeod, Mrs. Pickford and Mrs. Elliott, on behalf of the town, presented each with a parcel of knitted articles. Colonel Russell was given an opportunity to reply for the boys and upon the conclusion of his remarks Mr. Nesbitt arose and explained that the Colonel was on of the first to enlist for overseas service, but on account of the seniority list in service, has not yet been accepted. The addresses were interspersed with patriotic selections by the band, the favorite being the marching song of the Briti9sh forces in the present war. "It's a long way to Tipperary", which the Boy Scouts sang heartily to the band's accompaniment, and upon being played a second time the audience joined in. The program was closed with the singing of "God save the King." Rousing cheers were given for the boys, the flag and King. Leaving the Opera House a procession was formed of numerous automobiles (remember this was 1914), hand wagons and pedestrians, leading to the (train) station where the conclusion of the memorable farewell to the boys took place. Wristwatches were also purchased for the boys who went from Brighton with the First Contingent, and these will be forwarded to them in England. Capt. H. P. Snelgrove, of Cobourg, who is in charge of the Company to which the Brighton Boys of the First Contingent belong, will also receive a wristwatch, the gift of Mrs. Sanford." The boys who left Brighton with the First Contingent are: - J. W. Briggs*, G. Davis, S. Hare*, A. Jenkinson, F. Johnson, Frank Richardson*, R. Suddell, J. Tough*, W. Taylor* and G. Withers.
