Dr. William Henry King

M, #1351, b. 20 November 1833, d. 9 June 1859

  • Birth*: 20 November 1833; Sophiasburgh Twp., Northport, Prince Edward Co., Upper Canada; Date Nov 20 1833 per Baptism. Date per Mildred (King) Beitzel's family history. Age 19 at 1851 Census. William Henry was the eldest son of George King - per "Life and Trial of Wm. H. King M.D. for Poisoning His Wife at Brighton" by C.W. Orono, Published by Steward and Vosper, 1859.
    Note: It also says that Isaac was 18 months younger than William.
    "William Henry King was born in 1835 to a fairly prosperous farming family in the township of Sophiasburg in Prince Edward County, in the eastern part of what was then called Upper Canada." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 35
    "Dr. William Henry King, born 1835 in Crofton, Ont. Res. Brighton, Ont. He died age 24 yrs. in 1859. Married Sarah Ann Lawson. Dr. William studied medicine in Toronto & Hamilton, returned to Brighton in 1858. Died tragic death. Methodist, 5'7". From Burr's Book." from Marilyn Adams Research Center, Ameliasburgh, King Family History
    Note: This is full of errors but interesting in any case.
  • Baptism: 30 June 1852; Trenton Anglican Church Diocese, Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Baptism: Name: William Henry King; Parents: George N. and Henrietta King; Trade: farmer; Abode: Cramahe; Date of Birth: Nov 20, 1833; Date of Baptism: June 30, 1852; Sponsors: Adult Baptism; Officiating Minister: W. Bleasdell, M. A. (pg. 19 & 20, Trenton Anglican Church Diocese, copied at Anglican Church Archives, Kingston, Aug. 3, 2004)
    Note: The project to baptise all the King children in the Anglican Church is very interesting. The 1851 Census shows them as EM - Episcopal Methodists - but here they are being baptised in the Anglican Church, at some expense and effort. The parents took the older kids in 1852 and the two oldest kids, William and Mary Louisa, took the younger kids the next summer. There may be community perceptions involved in this decision. We also must remember that George King may have been French Heugenot - Leroy translated to King - so he had a serious desire to fit in with the mainstream to provide opportunities for his kids. Seems like a good plan.
  • Marriage*: 31 January 1853; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Marriage: 15 March 1854 ... Jan 31st, William H. King to Sarah Ann, oldest daughter of John Lawson, all of the township of Brighton (Rev J. Black) (Christian Guardian)
    Date per Mildred (King) Beitzel's family history says 1854 but death of child is in 1854 - must be 1853 for marriage.
    "According to our records, he baby was born before the marriage took place, and could possibly be the reason for the marriage. Sarah was married on 31 Jan. 1854 in Northumberland County, to William Henry King." from the Mitchell, Higgins, Parr and Lawson Book, pg. 249, Brighton Public Library, Sep 21 2013.
    Note: If Sarah was stayinng with her parents, then the baby was born in Brighton Township, in Lawson Settlement.; Principal=Sarah Ann Lawson1
  • Death*: 9 June 1859; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Canada West; William Henry King was executed at the Cobourg Court House on Thursday, June 9, 1859, after being found guilty of murdering his wife Sarah Ann (Lawson) by poisoning. It was the "O. J. Simpson Trial of the Century" for the whole of Ontario. ".. a crowd of some ten thousand people it is supposed witnessed the sad spectacle.
  • Burial*: 12 June 1859; King Farm, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Memorial: (See Exhibit) In Memory of; William Henry King; Who Departed This Life; June 9, 1859; Aged; 26 Y. 5 M. & 17 D (King/Ames/Buchanan Home, buried at south east corner of the house - Dan Buchanan)
    The body was buried in the front garden at the farm in Codrington. The grave stone stood at the corner of the house until the 1920's when Linnie (King) Ames asked her sons, Lloyd and Kenneth Ames, to get rid of it. People would stop on the road and point to it. They buried the stone where it stood just below the grass. In the late 1950's Lloyd Ames and Charles Buchanan uncovered the stone and took some pictures of it. The stone was buried in the garden a short distance away. In the mid-1960's Charles Buchanan pulled to stone up with a plough resulting in the stone being broken in two. Lloyd Ames took the two pieces in his jeep up to The Hill where he smashed it into small pieces and "buried them in a dozen places" as he put it. That took care of that! (Dan Buchanan)2
  • Residence*: 1844; Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; "When William was eleven years old his family moved to the township of Cramahe, near Brighton at the east end of lake Ontario." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death", included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 35
    "The Strange Case of Dr. King" says that George King and his young family lived in Sophiasburg Township in Prince Edward Count when William Henry was born in 1835. In 1844 they moved to the farm in Cramahe (later Brighton) Township where George had purchase 100 acres of land in 1846.
  • Census: 1844; Conc 9 Lot 2, Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; 1844 Assessment: George King is shown at Conc 9, Lot 2, Cramahe Twp. in the 1844 Assessment records. This is Codrington, on the north side of Alison Road.
  • Note: 1845; Canada West; "On the contrary, the writer has been intimately acquainted with the Dr. for this last fourteen years, and has followed him through all the vicissitudes of life, from youth to manhood, from the family circle and school-room to the prison, and hence claims to have superior advantage over most of others of knowing his real character." from the Preface of "Life and Trial of Wm H. King" written by Reuben Decourcy.
    Note: The trial and hanging were in 1850 so 14 years before that is 1845 when the King family had just moved from Northport to Cramahe Twp. It appears as if Reuben DeCourcy was a school chum of Wm. Henry King - from early days.3
  • Residence: 1849; Conc 9 Lot 2, Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; The account about William Henry King says that for several years before William went off to Normal School in 1851 his father George was ill with dispesia and the two yongsters, William and Isaac, handled the farm work until the man of the house was able to carry the weight again. This suggests the energy and gumption of both boys and possibly the close relationship that may have developed by neccessity between them.
  • Education*: 1851; Normal School, Toronto, York Co., Canada West; "When William turned seventeen in 1851, he persuaded his father to send him to Normal School (teacher's college) in Toronto during the winter months, when he could be spared from chores on the farm. He lived frugally and studied hard. In 1855 King passed his final exams with flying colours. He was given a first class teaching certificate, and landed a good position at the Central School of Hamilton, teaching physiology. King would later say that he was now "in a fair way to achieve both fame and wealth." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 36
  • Note: 1 January 1852; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Brighton Township was created on January 1, 1852, taking the east part of Cramahe and the west part of Murray along with Presqu'ile to form a third township where there were two. Location references will change from Cramahe or Murray to Brighton for those folks, like the King family at Codrington, who lived in the new Brighton Township. (See "the Birth of Brighton Township" in the History section of www.treesbydan.com.
  • Census*: circa June 1852; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Age 19 at 1851 Census: see George King4
  • Occupation: 1853; Mount Olivet Public School, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; "Teachers in the log school were Martha Wellington in 1853, Henry King, who later became a doctor ..." from pg. 67 of As The Crow Flies by Mrs. Leuna M. Austin, Mika Publishing, 1975
  • Residence: circa February 1853; Hamilton, Wentworth Co., Canada West; "Sarah Anne Lawson came from a large, well-off, and very respectable family who owned a farm about a mile from Brighton. Sarah, who was about King's age, was very attractive and well-educated. She and King were married in 1855. They moved into a house in Hamilton, and took in boarders to help pay the bills. Sarah's father, John, also assisted the young couple finanically. John Lawson must have seen a bright future for his new son-in-law, because he even agreed to help pay for King's medical studies in the U.S." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 36 & 37
    Note: The date of the marriage is a bit confused, whether it is in 1853, 1854 or 1855. The child, George Henry King, was born Jan 12 1854 and died a month later so the marriage was likely in 1853.
  • Note: 8 November 1853; Trenton Anglican Church Diocese, Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Baptism records for the Trenton Anglican Church Diocese, Nov 8, 1853, show that the three children who were not baptised on June 30, 1852 were baptised by W. Bleasdell. The two eldest children, William Henry and Mary Louisa were recorded as the Sponsors.
  • Education: September 1856; Homeopathic Collage of Pennsylvannia, Philadelphia, U.S.A; In pursuit of a medical degree, William went to Philadelphia for two terms and was popular with his peers as was indicated by the letters sent in support of him during his trial. By all accounts, he was very successful academically, even at this lofty level.
    "William enrolled in Philadelphia's Homeopathy Medical College. There he attended school for three years, only returning home during the summer months until he graduated as a doctor." from "Ontario's Murderous Past - The Love-Sick Doctor", by Terry Boyle, pg. 132
    "From 1856 to 1858, King was in Canada only during the summer months, teaching at various schools near Brighton. The rest of the time he was in Philadelphia pursuing his medical studies. He was a top student. In 1857, King was elected president of the Hahnemannian Medical Institute of the Homeopathic Medical College of Philadelphia. He graduated near the top of this class in 1858 and went home with diplomas from the Homeopathic Medical College, the Pennsylvania Medical University in Philadelphia, and the Eclectic Medical College of Philadelphia." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" incuded in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada", by Edward Butts, pg. 37
  • Misc*: 1857; Brighton Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Directory of Ontario, 1858: King, William Henry, Codrington, Northumberland, M.D. (pg. 311)
  • Residence: March 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "On King's return in March 1858, he and Sarah reconciled. They moved into a house in Brighton and Dr. King began to build up a very successful practice. His patients condisered him a "pleasant and gentlemanly" doctor, with manners that were "easy and graceful". Before long he was earning $100 to $200 a month, which was a very comfortable income for a small-town doctor at thtat time." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 37
  • Occupation*: 17 March 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; William completed his degrees at Philadelphia in 1858 and immediately commenced a medical practice on Sanford Street in Brighton. By his own account. ".. success was imminent..".
  • Note: 23 September 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "On September 23, 1858, a friend of the Lawson family, Miss Melinda Vandervoort, visited the King home. Melinda, who lived in Sidney Township near Trenton, was twenty years old, very pretty, and had been spending a few days with Sarah's parents. Dr. King had never met her before. That evening, after King and Sarah had driven Melinda back to the Lawson farm, Sarah told her husband about a peculiar thing Melinda had said to her. Sarah said that Miss Vandervoort had told her she was in love with Dr. King. She had been in love with him from the moment she'd seen his photograph in the Lawson home. She apparently did not respond to Melinda's very forward statement. When Dr. King heard of it, he seemed to just brush it aside as nonsense." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 38
  • Note: 24 September 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "But the idea of a beautiful young woman falling in love with his photogrph appealed to Dr. King's vanity. Melinda visited again the next day and, at Dr. King's request, stayed until late in the evening. Like many Victorian middle-class families, the Kings had a piano and a melodeon in the parlour. Melinda could play both instruments, and also had a lovely singing voice. She entertained Dr. and Mrs. King with renditions of popular songs, such as "Kitty Clyde", "Old Dog Gray", and "Hazel Dell". Dr. King was soon infatuated with Melinda. Sarah, who could neither play a note nor sing, seemed rather drab in comparison. What's more, Sarah was now about three months pregnent." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 38
  • Note: 10 October 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "Dear Doctor. The time has come for me to respond. Yours of the 10th instant came to me in good repair, and exceedingly pleased was I while perusing its contents."
    from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada", pg. 40
  • Note: 3 November 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "Sarah's father John Lawson insisted William seek out a second medial opinion. William obliged by calling in Dr. A. E. Fife. Dr. Fife was informed by William that the patient was pregnant and suffered from ulcerations of the womb. For whatever reason (perhaps the infectious nature of the disease?) Dr. Fife did not examine Sarah, instead he prescribed ipecacuanha and camphor to alleviate the vomiting. The medicine didn't help and Sarah's condition continued to deteriorate. Her father was beside himself. Dr. P. Gross was then contacted. He received the same information from William that Dr. Fife had been given. Once again Mrs. King was not examined by the doctor. He, too, prescribed some medicine to help stem the persistent vomiting." from "Fit to Be Tied - Ontario's Murderous Past" by Terry Boyle, pg. 135
  • Note*: 4 November 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "Her husband, mother and father had been taking turns sitting up with her through the long nights, but on the evening of November 3, 1858, Sarah told them she felt well enough that they could all go to bed and get a good night's sleep. The following morning they found Sarah, n bed; she had sunk into a coma. By nightfall she was dead." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death", included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 42
  • Note: circa 20 November 1858; Conc 4 Lot 25, Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Canada West; "It was late evening when King reached the Vandervoort farm. John and Elizabeth, Melinda's parents, had never met King before and his reason for coming alarmed them. King said that his wife's body was being exhumed and that soon a warrant for his arrest would be issued. He said there would also be a warrant for Melinda's arrest. He wanted to take her to the United States where they would be safe until the trouble was straightened out. Melinda's parents were reluctant to allow her to go with King, but the fear of her being arrested prevailed. They said she could go with King on the sole condition that the pair go to Melinda's aunt's house in Cape Vincent, New York, a small community on the St. Lawrence River." from 'Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death", in the book "Murder; Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Ed Butts, pg. 43
    "A furious Dr. King went immediately to the Vandervoort farm in the township of Sidney where he spent an hour talking to Melinda. Then King took Melinda across the U.S. border to the safe haven of an aunt's house." from "Dr. Billy King" by Paul Dalby
    Note: The aunt referred to here was likley Catherine Vandervoort, a sister of Melissa's father, John H. Vandervoort. My records show she married a man named Bate or Bates but I have found nothing yet on this family. However, we do see Catherine Bates back in Sidney in the 1861 Census. More research needed here.
  • Note: 26 November 1858; Cape Vincent, Jefferson Co., New York, U.S.A.; "A warrant was issued for King's arrest, and Sarah's brother, Clinton Lawson, was sworn in as a special constable to serve it. It didn't take Lawson long to trace King to Cape Vincent. There he learned that King was staying at a farm owned by a man named Bate, about six miles inland. Accompanied by a United States Marshal named Gordon, Lawson went to the farm. Marshal Gordon entered the house while Lawson waited in the yard. About three minutes later, Lawson saw Dr. King jump out a window and make a break for the woods. When King saw Lawson chasing him, he turned and ran into the barn. Lawson followed, and found King hiding under some straw. He pulled a revolver and told King to come with him or be shot. Clinton Lawson had no legal authority to sieze King on American soil and drag him back to Canada, but U.S. Marshal Gordon must have looked looke the other way. Lawson ignored King's protests and forced the doctor to accompany him to Cobourg where he was locked in jail. During King's trial a lawyer asked Lawson if the doctor had returned to Canada willingly. Lawson replied "No, sir. No sir-ee!"." from

  • Note: 9 April 1859; Court House, Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "On Saturday, April 9, William King was led back into the Cobourg courtroom. Chief Justice Burns asked William if he had anything to say before being sentenced. He replied, "I have this much to say, that upon my solemn oath I am not quilty of the charge laid against me. I have no doubt of this; my conscience is perfectly clear upon this point." The judge, however, refused to comply with the jury's recommendation for mercy. William King was to be hanged on Thursday, June 9. With all of that William' countenance and he wept." from "Fit to Be Tied - Ontario's Murderous Past" by Terry Boyle, pg. 141

  • Note*: 23 September 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "On September 23, 1858, a friend of the Lawson family, Miss Melinda Vandervoort, visited the King home. Melinda, who lived in Sidney Township near Trenton, was twenty years old, very pretty, and had been spending a few days with Sarah's parents. Dr. King had never met her before. That evening, after King and Sarah had driven Melinda back to the Lawson farm, Sarah told her husband about a peculiar thing Melinda had said to her. Sarah said that Miss Vandervoort had told her she was in love with Dr. King. She had been in love with him from the moment she'd seen his photograph in the Lawson home. She apparently did not respond to Melinda's very forward statement. When Dr. King heard of it, he seemed to just brush it aside as nonsense." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 38
  • Note: 24 September 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "But the idea of a beautiful young woman falling in love with his photogrph appealed to Dr. King's vanity.

Melinda could play both instruments, and also had a lovely singing voice. She entertained Dr. and Mrs. King with renditions of popular songs, such as "Kitty Clyde", "Old Dog Gray", and "Hazel Dell". Dr. King was soon infatuated with Melinda. Sarah, who could neither play a note nor sing, seemed rather drab in comparison. What's more, Sarah was now about three months pregnent." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 38
  • Note: 14 October 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "On October 14, four days before Melinda wrote her letter, Sarah suddenly became very ill. She suffered from excruciating abdominal cramps, accompanied by violent bouts of vomiting and diarrhea. Of course, her husband was her physician. He told Sarah that she had cholera morbus, which was the nineteenth century term for what is now called acute gastroentritis. He also said she had an ulcerated womb. King prescribed medication for Sarah, administering it himself. Sarah's condition worsened." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 41

The inscription carries no mention of the name King; only “son of the above”, which referred to his mother’s name and death date, along with the names of her parents." from the Mitchell, Higgins, Parr and Lawson Book, pg. 249, Brighton Public Library, Sep 21 2013.2
