  • Note*: circa 1787; Lot 24, Kingston, Frontenac Co., Quebec; "The name of Herkimer is engraved upon the history of America, both in the United States and in Canada. "Colonel Hanjost Herkimer, or John Joost, was a son of Johan Jost Herkimer, one of the Palatimes of the German Flats, New York, and a brother of the reel general Nicholas Herkimer." "His property was confiscated. he went to Canada, and died there before 1787." (Sabine). Prior to the war he had occupied several public offices. He served as an officer in Butler's Rangers. We find his name inserted for lot 24 of Kingston, on which now stands part of the city. His son Nicholas settled upon the Point now bearing the family name. He married a Purdy and had seveal children. His end was a sad one, being murdered by a blacksmith, named Rogers, who escaped. A daughter was married to Captain Sadlier, another to an officer in the army, and a third to Mr. Wartman. The old family place in New York is yet indicated by the name of Herkimer County." page 108 of "History of the settlement of Upper Canada", ancesty.com)4
  • Note: 1790; Rice Lake, Quebec; "Peter Smith operated the trading posts at Pemiscutinak or Smith's Creek (as Port Hope was called in his honour) and Rice Lake-apparently on the south side of the lake, presumably near the end of the portage-from 1778 until 1790. He then sold out to Lawrence Herkimer, son of John Jost Herkimer, a fur trader who had settled at Cataraqui as a Loyalist in 1784 or 1785. In the United States, John had a reputation for selling excessive quantities of rum. Lawrence's brother, Jacob, was a Toronto merchant, who it seems had some involvement with the Lake Scugog trade."

Neil McLean1,2,3,4

M, #84656, b. circa 1735, d. 1 September 1795
  • Birth*: circa 1735; Ireland; "MCLEAN, NEIL (Neal), commissary, businessman, and local official; m. secondly Mary Herkimer, and they had one daughter; buried 1 Sept. 1795 at Kingston, Upper Canada. Details of Neil McLean’s early life are not known. He has been wrongly identified with other people of the same name, and it should be noted that he was not an officer in the 84th Foot or the father of Archibald McLean."

  • Note*: 1759; "He probably joined the commissariat department of the British army in 1759. At that time, except for a few on colonial establishments, commissaries were recruited from civilian life for particular campaigns and were usually men with commercial or financial experience. They ranked as officers but had no power of command, and were frequently suspected of enriching themselves at the expense of the government and the troops.
    Since McLean later claimed that he had had continuous service in the department, he must have been kept on the establishment after the peace in 1763, perhaps in America." (Dictionary of Canadian Biographies, http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/mclean_neil_1795_4E.htm)4
  • Note: 1776; Canada; "In 1776 he was ordered to Canada. There, according to his own statement, he was constantly employed on dangerous and disagreeable service and was the "drudge" of the department. Appointed assistant commissary general on 2 Jan. 1777, he served from 1778 in the "transport business" at Carleton Island (N.Y.). He forwarded supplies and reinforcements to the Upper Lakes posts and performed some duties connected with the distribution of gifts to the Indians. At times he had difficulty collecting his pay and allowances from the government." (Dictionary of Canadian Biographies, http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/mclean_neil_1795_4E.htm)4
  • Residence*: 1783; Kingston, Upper Canada; "In 1783, when the loyalist regiments were disbanded, McLean's pay was reduced, but he was kept on as assistant commissary and storekeeper for the loyalist settlement at Cataraqui (Kingston, Ont.). As one of the first "Habitants," he became a leader of the community, and in July 1784, along with John Ross, he was appointed justice of the peace. McLean became a deputy inspector of land surveys and of loyalists on 14 Jan. 1786, and on 10 Sept. 1788 was made inspector for loyalist land claims and a member of the land board for the District of Mecklenburg. On 14 June 1788 he had been appointed judge of the Court of Common Pleas along with James Clark*.
    McLean prospered in Kingston. By 1788 he and his wife had received 700 acres from the government. His property included choice waterfront and other lots on both sides of the Cataraqui River. He maintained a house and farm staffed by two black servants. In 1789, along with other "principal inhabitants" of Kingston, he petitioned unsuccessfully for possession of the Kingston mills. By July 1793 he had received another 2,000 acres from the government, and he may have purchased land from other grantees."
