    Note: Elizabeth Gibson married Josiah Wellington after her first husband Charles Selleck had died in 1809. She appears in census records as Widow Elizabeth Selleck as late as 1816. This would explain why she appears as Elizabeth Wellington in the 1861 and 1871 Census with her son Isaac M. Wellington.; Principal=Josiah Dix Wellington1,6

  • Married Name: circa 1817; Wellington
  • Note: circa 1820; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "It may be surprising to know that during 1813 a brigade of British regulars stationed at Presqu'ile was detained by a storm. I. M. Wellington summarized these events: "In the spring of 1813, all war news was carried in dispatches on horseback. Night and day the trooper was galloping through the country from post to post with a dispatch to be forwarded to the next trooper, who was ready to rush away with the pakcage. Nearly all the young men of the country had enlisted in defence of their happy homes and the British troops were sent forward to aid in repelling their enemies. All this time a Brigade of British regular was detained at Presqu'ile Point by a storm. The commisariat being low the widow's last cow was slaughtered for beef. However, the Colonel paid her in goods about twice the price of the cow saying "she could replace it with another one"." This widow was Mrs. Selleck who later married Joseph Wellington, the father of I. M. Wellington." per page 61 at The Tobey Book.
    Note: The parents of I. M. Wellington were Josiah Wellington and Elizabeth (Gibson)Selleck. Captain Charles Selleck died about 1809 and widow Elizabeth Selleck is recorded in census records as late as 1816.6
  • Note: circa 1820; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "In 1897, W. Brother, I. M. Wellington died at the age of 86. He was the first white child born at Presqu'ile. Thoughout this book the reader will have found references to this remarkable man, as he was the author of the article quoted from the Ontario Historical Society's Paper and records - Vol. V, 1904. I. M. Wellington was also important in the Masonic Lodge, for he lectured before them on various occassions, and wrote a brief history of the United States. Mr. Wellington's mother was, previous to her second marriage, the widow of Captain Selleck." from page 528 of The Tobey Book.
    Note: I. M. Wellington was born in 1821 and it would be unlikely he was the first at Presqu'ile Point. Families lived there from at least 1802.6
  • Residence*: circa 1820; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "The story of the town of Newcastle is most intimately joined up with the wreck of the vessel Speedy. In connection with this story two names stand out prominently. These are Captain Selleck and I. M. Wellington. Mr. Wellington gave the first account of the events surrounding the wreck of the vessel. The Brighton Ensign of June 25, 1897 spoke of this great historian: "On December 11, 1821, the first white child was born on Presqu'ile Point. That child was Isaac M. Wellington, the third son of the late Joseph Wellington and Elizabeth Gibson Selleck. His father Joseph Wellington was a United Empire Loyalist and his mother previous to her marriage to Mr. Wellington was the widow of Captain Selleck."" from page 29 of The Tobey Book.
    Note: Isaac Maitland Wellington (1821-1897) was the son Josiah Wellington (1780-1865) and Elizabeth Gibson, who had been previously married to Captain Charles Selleck. It is very doubtful if I. M. Wellington was the first white child born at Presqu'ile since families lived there from at least 1802. I. M. Wellington's Death Registration says he was born in Haldimand Township which may be possible since Josiah Wellington owned land near Grafton during this time.6
  • Census: 1852; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Age 73 at 1851 Census: Wellington, Elizabeth, 73, b. Cda., WM, widow; Asselstine, Mary, 26, b. Cda., WM, single (1851 Census: Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., pg. 55 of 160, line 34 - ancestry.ca)
    Note: This looks like Elizabeth (Selleck Gibson) Wellington with a servant or relative, Mary Asselstines, age 26. This is in Brighton Village, just below William Orser, tailor and above Robert Clark, wheelwright.5
  • Census: April 1861; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 81 at 1861 Census: see Isaac M. Wellington (son)
    Note: In the 1861 Census, Elizabeth (Selleck, Gibson) Wellington is clearly shown to be a widow, living with her son Isaac Maitland Wellinngton. On the other hand, Josiah Dix Wellington, who was her second husband, appears to be in the 1861 Census with son John Wesley Wellington in Raudon Twp.. We have a date in 1865 for his death. Oddly enough, we see Josiah Wellington of the same age in the 1851 Census in Percy Twp. with a wife named Jane. Is there something wrong here???3

  • Death*: April 1809; Newcastle, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Before a council of settlers was formed the needy were dependent on gaining help directly from their neighbours. An incident occurred in 1809 which aptly illustrates this type of action. Captain Selleck had died in April of that year and his widow was left with a large family of small children." from page 49 of The Tobey Book.

  • Note*: 20 June 1782; Norwalk, Fairfield Co., Connecticut, U.S.A.; "The most probable is: He was a Lieutenant in the British Army who stayed in Canada and became a Ship's Master or Captain of a freighter. Gorham says he went to Canada. Capt. Marvin's Co. of Coast Guard for the defense of Norwalk: Charles Sillick, entered service 3 Apr 1782, discharged 20 June 1782; 1790 Census, New York, Westchester County, Bedford lists a Charles Sillock" per GEDCOM of Scott Stewart, Mar 11 2010.2
  • Note: May 1802; Presqu'ile Point, Newcastle, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "The Newcastle town-site was on an equally ambitious scale, providing for a hospital, a church, a market square, and, to make it clear that this was not to be a temporary community, a graveyard. The pioneer settlers, including the Sellecks, Gibsons, Thompsons, and Simpsons, could probably foresee the day when Newcastle would be one of the principal urban centres in the province. The town's harbour, which naturally was to have a jetty and a lighthouse to mark the entrance, seemed an ideal one, even more sheltered than those at York and Kingston.
    Captain Charles Selleck and his father-in-law, George Gibson, were responsible for building the court-house complex. Once it was finished, Selleck and his wife were to operate both the court-house itself and its hotel. When Selleck was away on Lake Ontario with his schooner the Lady Murray, and court was not in session, his wife, assisted by her brother, would manage the hotel. She would also feed the prisoners who would soon be lodged in the new jail." Speedy Justice, Brendan O'Brien, page 855
  • Residence*: 3 December 1803; Niagara Township, Lincoln Co., Upper Canada; " ... and Grant unto Charles Selleck of the Township of Niagara in the County of Lincoln in the District of Niagara, Mariner." A Land Grant signed on December 3, 1803, shows that Charles Selleck was considered to be living in the Township of Niagara, Lincoln County. The land being granted was one acre on the bayshore of Presque Isle to build a wharf.
    Note: This is the first mention of Niagara re Charles Selleck. However, he was a "mariner" or ship captain working around Lake Ontario so records of the government may still show him registered in Niagara. Most info re Charles Selleck has him coming to Newcastle in 1802 when they built the court house and jail building, with he and his wife as custodians of the buidling.

  • Note: 8 October 1804; Presqu'ile Point, Newcastle, Newcastle Dist., Upper Canada; "The only writer who has attempted to reconstruct what probably happened is C.H.J. Snider. After speculating that Paxton would have fired a distress signal, Snider continues: 'The passengers below thought the vessel was signalling her arrival, and began donning their greatcoats in preparation for landing. "A few moments yet, Your Lordship, a few moments yet," called down Lieut. Paxton. More truly than he thought. A light blazed redly. Capt. Selleck, on the point, in answer to the gun, had set fire to a great pile of brush, logs, and chips from the newbuilt courthouse, to guide the vessel in." Speedy Justice, Brendan O'Brien, page 101.
    Note: C. H. J. Snider was known in the late 1890s and early 1900s for dramatic stories about ships and sailing on the Great Lakes. He painted the image of the Speedy that is so popular today. There is more than a little poetic license in his stories, which are entertaining, to be sure, but not to be considered historical.5
  • Note: March 1805; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "In 1805 the government, deciding that the location of this capital was "inconvenient", moved the capital to the Cobourg area and abandoned Newcastle. The courthouse was subsequently used as a home by a Captain Selleck and his family. Timothy Thompson, Thomas Ward, Joseph Gibson, and David Rogers used other lots in Newcastle. However, because Newcastle did not become the district capital, the development of Presqu'ile (and Brighton) was delayed." from page 56 of "The Municipality of Brighton" published in 2006.
    Note: This addresses the situation at Presqu'ile Point after the sinking of the Speedy in October 1804.6
  • Note: circa 1808; Murray Twp., Presqu'ille Point, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Ran cargo on Lake Superior with father of his wife." per GEDCOM of Rick, Mar 15 2010.
    Note: There was a thriving shipping industry running across Lake Ontario between Kingston and Upper Canada ports along the north shore of Lake Ontario and the US ports on the east end of Lake Ontario such as Sacket's Harbour and Richland on the Salmon River. George Gibson was involved along with Josiah Wellington and Samuel Sherwood and others. Presqu'ile Bay was a very active port in the early decades of the 1800's.
