    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=Elizabeth Gibson2,3

  • Census*: 1818; Murray Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; 1818 Census: Josiah Wellington; 1 male over 16; 3 males under 16; 3 females over 16; 1 female under 16
  • Residence: circa 1820; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "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.3

  • Note*: 1825; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "In 1825, the "Frontenac", 170 feet long, with a maximum speed of 10 1/2 miles per hour, became the first steamboat to arrive in Brighton Harbour. Built in 1816, the boat had 18 paddles in the wheels, each of which were forty feet in circumference. Mr. I. M. Wellington wrote of the commotion and excitement resulting from its arrival: "Although Grandfather had helped to build many a large vessel, yet he had never seen a steamboat. The old gentleman, hearing the noise, sprang to his feet, and asked what was making the noise; but when he got sight of the boat rounding Salt Point, making her way into the harbor and dropping anchor, he raised both hands above his head, exclaiming that the world was coming to an end, when we see a ship running without sails. In many days after, a hearty laugh did the young people have at Grandfather's expense over his first sight of a steamboat."" from page 40 of "The Municipality of Brighton", published in 2006.
    Note: This is an interesting story but the text raises questions about this Wellington family. I. M. Wellington uses the term "Grandfather" here to refer the old sea captain at Presqu'ile. My research suggests that I. M. Wellington is the son of Josiah Dix Wellington and Elizabeth Gibson. This event takes place in 1825 when Josiah would have been 45 years old - not exactly "The old gentleman", it might seem. I. M.'s paternal grandparents are shown to be Joseph Wellington and Anna Dix; Joseph died in 1819, so it's not him. More likely he is talking about his maternal grandfather, George Gibson, father of his mother, Elizabeth Gibson. George Gibson was also a sea captain living at Presqu'ile Point and appears in Murray Township census records until 1825.4

    Note: Is this the same Josiah Wellington as lived at Presqu'ile Point. The age and birth location all work as well as the fact this is the only 1851 Census records I have seen for him. In 1861 he is with his son John Wesley Wellington in Rawdon. Are there TWO Josiah Wellington's both born in US 1780 and in this same area?????
    Note: These Fenton boys must be connected to Jane Wellington - her children??5
  • Residence*: 1852; Conc 1 Lot 1, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Josiah Wellington does not appear in the 1851 Census in Brighton Township. His wife and kids do appear and Eliza Wellington is clearly shown as married - "M" and not a widow. The agricultural census record shows "J. Wellington" at Conc 1, Lot 1 with 1 acres. This suggests that Josiah Wellington is still alive but not in Brighton for the 1851 Census. In fact, he is with his son John Wesley Wellington in Rawdon Twp. for the 1861 Census.
    Note: See 1851 Census record - is that this same guy???5

  • Note: 1822; Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Early Settlers; The following newspaper articles from the Brighton Ensign cover births and deaths of early settlers of Presqu'ile as well as anecdotes of the people themselves. ... "June 25, 1897, tells the story of the first white child born on Presqu'ile Point, December 11, 1821, Isaac M. Wellington, son of Joseph Wellington." from page 15 of "Presqu'ile, Brighton Ontario" by Susan Bergeron & Bonnie Browne, 1994
    Note(1): People had lived on Presqu'ile from around 1800 - or at least had lived and worked around there. I'd like to confirm that Isaac M. Wellington, born in 1821 would be the first white child born there. Seems like this need some explanation.
    Note(2): Wondering where the info re Joseph Wellington being Isaac's father came from. The census records and several trees on rootsweb.com show that Josiah Dix Wellington (a son of Joseph Wellington) was the son of Isaac. Was there another Joseph I have no record of?9
  • Residence: circa 1825; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "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 soen 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.10
  • Note: 1825; Murray Twp., Presqu'ile Point, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "In 1825, the "Frontenac", 170 feet long, with a maximum speed of 10 1/2 miles per hour, became the first steamboat to arrive in Brighton Harbour. Built in 1816, the boat had 18 paddles in the wheels, each of which were forty feet in circumference. Mr. I. M. Wellington wrote of the commotion and excitement resulting from its arrival: "Although Grandfather had helped to build many a large vessel, yet he had never seen a steamboat. The old gentleman, hearing the noise, sprang to his feet, and asked what was making the noise; but when he got sight of the boat rounding Salt Point, making her way into the harbor and dropping anchor, he raised both hands above his head, exclaiming that the world was coming to an end, when we see a ship running without sails. In many days after, a hearty laugh did the young people have at Grandfather's expense over his first sight of a steamboat."" from page 40 of "The Municipality of Brighton", published in 2006.
    Note: This is an interesting story but the text raises questions about this Wellington family. I. M. Wellington uses the term "Grandfather" here to refer the old sea captain at Presqu'ile. My research suggests that I. M. Wellington is the son of Josiah Dix Wellington and Elizabeth Gibson. This event takes place in 1825 when Josiah would have been 45 years old - not exactly "The old gentleman", it might seem. I. M.'s paternal grandparents are shown to be Joseph Wellington and Anna Dix; Joseph died in 1819, so it's not him. More likely he is talking about his maternal grandfather, George Gibson, father of his mother, Elizabeth Gibson. George Gibson was also a sea captain living at Presqu'ile Point and appears in Murray Township census records until 1825.13

His house is still standing and occupied by his daughter, Mrs. Addie Wellington-Lapp. Mr. Wellington built another house west of the old home and he rented the east room for a printing office. A young printer by the name of J. E. Solomon moved the printing office from Cobourg and printed the first paper, called the "Brighton Flag"." from page 35 of The Toby Book.10
