  • Note: circa 1808; Kingston, Frontanc Co., Upper Canada; "The story is told of the late Sheriff Henry RUTTAN, that when a child, he met with an accident which turned the current of his life from one of comparative obscurity to notoriety. Having gone out with his brother one spring morning to tap for sugar making, two of Henry's fingers were severed from his hand by an accidental stroke of the sharp axe. The loss led his father to send him to school, as he could not perform manual labor. With the education thus received he was apprenticed to a merchant [John KIRBY] in Kingston. Through industry and talent he was advanced to be a partner, and was entrusted to open a store near Grafton." From 1878 Illustrated Historical Atlas of Durham and Northumberland Counties of Ontario.

  • Note: June 1812; Grafton, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Sheriff Ruttan was a brave man. At the age of 20, in 1812, he enlisted as a sergeant in John Spencer's Flank Company of the 1st. Northumberland Militia. This, even though he had got himself a good start in life. His only education was through the Family bible and his mother's stories, but so successfully had he run his relative's store in Kingston, the family set him up in his own store in his own store in Grafton. In June that year Ruttan joined up for the war, and our records find him in York, just before it was taken and burned by the Americans in April, 1813. Could he have been among those weary soldiers, hastily retreating through Northumberland County in the wake of the disaster? We don't know. Sometime around then, he was promoted to 2nd. Lieutenant of the 8th (King's) Regiment of the Line - possibly the most famous regiment of that war. We next catch up with him in 1814 at the Battle of Lundy's Lane. We find the story in what must have been a personal memoir, recorded by a friend after Ruttan's death. In the dusk, toward the end of that closely-fought, confused fight, Ruttan found himself reconnoitering some soldiers to his front by "quietly advancing under cover of a fence and lying trees," until he discovered "long-tailed coats turned up with white" by which he knew it was the enemy. He quickly scuttled back into his own lines and his men prepared to receive a volley of musket and cannon fire from the Americans. Ruttan escaped the first salvo, but on the second, he said, he "scarcely felt the shock, and was conscious only that…he was involuntarily brought upon both feet (they were taught to fire on one knee) and turned quite round." A few steps toward his own rear…and he forgot everything until he awoke in the early morning hours, lying on a blanket, with a surgeon standing over him, declaring "Done for!" and then turning ominously away. Unlike so many young men of those days, Ruttan recovered from the musket ball that had almost removed his entire shoulder. So well did he recover that he was back in action before the end of the fighting." from an article in the Cobourg Daily Star, Mary 20, 1998, "Cobourg: Past Understanding" by Colin Caldwell. http://images.ourontario.ca/Cobourg/53247/data?n=47
  • Note: 25 July 1814; Battle of Lundy's Lane, Niagara Dist., Upper Canada; "Henry Ruttan Incorporated Militia; ROBERT TAYLOR; Henry Ruttan was definitely a prominent nation builder — a soldier, a statesman, an entrepreneur and an inventor.; Henry’s father, William Ruttan, was a lieutenant in the 3rd Battalion Jersey Volunteers during the American Revolution and was severely wounded during his service. He and his brother, Captain Peter Ruttan, were among the 1784 settlers who went to Adolphustown Township following that war. When the United States decided to invade Canada, Henry readily joined the militia to defend his new country. On the 1813 May/June muster roll of Captain Henry Davey’s Incorporated Militia, Henry’s name appears under the rank of lieutenant. During the Battle of Lundy’s Lane, 25 July 1814, he was severely wounded. In Episode 5 of “Canada, A People’s History” on CBC television the account of his injury was related. “I had but just taken my place in line, when I was shot through the right shoulder. I scarcely felt the shot, but was conscious that something unusual was the matter, as I was involuntarily brought upon both feet — we were all on one knee — and turned right around.” Fortunately Lieutenant Ruttan received quick medical attention, was sent by bateaux to Kingston to recover, and healed well enough to return to active service, rejoining his regiment at York in late December."

  • Note: 1848; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "This curiously modern note is entirely typical of Ruttan. He became convinced that everything people in those days thought about heating and their health was wrong. So certain was he, that in late 1848 he gave a talk on it, to the Cobourg Mechanics Institute.
    In his speech, he explained, in philosophically sound arguments, that their fire-places didn't really heat their house, that opening the window didn't air out the room, that their wives' expensive turkey carpets were a waste of money and might be killing everyone, and that Upper Canada was running out of wood.
    Telling Upper Canadians they were running out of anything - except perhaps money - was brave enough, but saying there might, someday, be a shortage of wood is simply awe-inspiring. This is like telling the Hudson's Bay Company they're short of ice. The speech, and the book he published through the Cobourg Star, received - to their great credit - a terrific response from those mechanics, and Henry went on to put his money where his mouth had been. He designed and built a new heating and ventilation system. The "Ruttan System" was adapted for hall-stoves and schools, and was even built into an entire building by the Detroit Young Mens' Society, under Ruttan's supervision, using ducts to bring fresh air in and foul out. Henry hasn't been so fortunate, I must say, among historians. Most of them have described his systems as "rube-goldberg" affairs, making them sound hopelessly impractical. Suffice it to say that essentially they embody the principles of a wood-burning, air-tight stove, which work very well indeed. His warnings about fossil and other fuel consumption need no special pleading to my ears. Then again, while "wondering what could be done about railway passenger cars sitting motionless in the blazing sun", (I wonder which local railway that was!) Ruttan adapted his principles of ventilation to the construction of "the first every air-conditioned passenger vehicle". This device was ultimately used by the Grand Trunk, New York & Erie and Boston & Lowell Railroads for their luxury cars. His devices were all built at the Victoria Foundry in Cobourg, and I'm happy to report that Ruttan died a wealthy and respected man as a result." from an article in the Cobourg Daily Star, Mary 20, 1998, "Cobourg: Past Understanding" by Colin Caldwell. http://images.ourontario.ca/Cobourg/53247/data?n=47
