  • Note: 1794; York Co., Upper Canada; "In 1794, Mrs. Farewell became Mrs. Crawford. He (a sergeant in the army) purchased his discharge, and 300 acres of land were located in Etobicoke, for the family. The elder boys were to commence farming, but A. M. was to learn a trade. Mr. Bond, newly arrived immigrant, a hatter by trade, engaged to instruct young Farewell in the art of making hats, and being an economist, and a genius, he conceived the brilliant idea of producing his own materials by raising muskrats and beaver. He obtained land north of York, and commenced operations at Bond's Lake, but the following spring, Bond and young Farewell returned to York, and the muskrat and beaver dispersed, but Bond's name still adheres to the Lake. The hatting business was abandoned by both master and apprentice - the latter joining the family upon the farm. Improvements were commenced in good ernest, but the step-father became fond of strong drink; debts were contracted, the farm was sold, the money disappeared, and the family scattered; A. M. going to Maiden, where he took up a free lot in that newly laid out village."

Mills, her commander, induced Mr. Farewell to sell his house and lot, and try a season's sailing with him on the "New Nancy". At the close of the season, A. M. and his brother William made arrangements for establishing a trading house at Lake Scugog, for the purchase of furs, etc., of the Mukrat branch of the Chippewa tribe of Indians, who were numerous about the lake in connection with Scugog."

  • Note: April 1804; Ball Popint, Lake Scugog, Upper Canada; "The recognized signal among the Indians and traders for calling for assistance, was the firing of three guns in quick succession. This was done, and a canoe with a solitary Indian came from the opposite shore of the lake, and in a short time the Chief of the tribe - "Wabbekisheco" - approached the brothers, (William having arrived in the mean time.) The Chief was very sorry for what had taken place, but unhesitatingly stated who had killed Sharp, and how it was done. He stated that a large number of Indians had brought furs, which Sharp purchased, and in a short time, the Indians became tipsy, wanting more liquor, which Sharp refused to give them. They induced him to go to the spring for water, when Ogetonicut followed and killed him. This Indian was a brother of Whistling Duck, who had been killed by a white man the winter previous, at Mr. Cozens, in what is now the township of Clarke. Whistling Duck had tried to thrust a muskrat spear through the American, but missed his aim, and had his skull cracked. The Governor promised there should be blood for blood, and this is why Sharp was killed."

  • Residence: April 1804; Ball Point, Lake Scugog, Upper Canada; "Two seasons were passed on this business. About the close of the second spring's trading, the two brothers left their trading house in Ball Point, now township of Mariposa, for the purpose of gathering in some furs, and closing up business preparatory to leaving for York to market their furs, placing the house and goods in charge of their hired man - John Sharp. A. M. returned to the house before Wm. and found the place deserted, and the liquors and goods missing. Not an Indian could be seen or heard. Near the spring, size rods from the house, lay the body of John Sharp, a knife stab in his left side, and his head crushed with a club."

  • Residence: June 1804; Conc 1 Lot 4, Whitby Twp., York Co., Upper Canada; "In June, 1804, Mr. Farewell purchased Lot 4 in the first concession of Whitby, for $200, upon the north half of which he settled. The Main Road, called the Danforth Road, from York to Port Hope, had been cut out, and a few settlements, made along the line. Going eastward from York, they were as follows - Scadding, John nd Jonathan Ashbridge, Jones, Knowles, Post, Woodruff, at Duffin's Creek, Jabez Lynde, A. M. Farewell, Fletcher, Hartwell, Flanagan, Smith at Port Hope. On the lake shore, the settlers were going east from York: Peak at the mouth of Duffin's Creek, Lloyd, Rumerfelt, three families of Smith, at the Big Bay, now Port Whitby, Stephens, Annis. at Port Oshawa, Wilson, Conant, Barber, at the creek of that name in Clarke, Lovekins, Baldwin, Bates, Soper, Marsh, Smith, at the Creek, now Port Hope."

  • Note: July 1804; York, York Co., Upper Canada; "The Indians all left the lake came out to Annis Creek, (now Port Oshawa,) went in their canoes to York. Mr. Farewell followed, and upon complaint being made, a guard of soldiers crossed over to the point to arrest the murderer. The Chief took the culprit by the shoulder, led him forward, and gave him up. He was imprisoned in York, but a survey being made during the summer, it was found the murder had been committed in the Newcastle District, and the trial was fixed at Weller's at the "Carrying Place" for the ensuing fall." The Story of the Speedy in Historic Sketches of Oshawa, http://localhistory.oshawalibrary.ca/pdfportal/pdfskins/kaiser/kaiser.pdf, page 13.
  • Note: 7 October 1804; York, York Co., Upper Canada; "His Majesty's gun boat Catherine or Maria was fitted out to take the court from York. On board were Judge Cochrane, lawyers, McDonald and Gray, Sheriff Fisk, interpreters Cowan and Ruggles, merchant Herkermer, the prisoner, witnesses and seamen, in all 39 souls on board. Business prevented Mr. Farewell from going to York to take the vessel, and he and George Lockwood were to proceed to Wilier's from Annis Creek in a canoe." The Story of the Speedy in Historic Sketches of Oshawa, http://localhistory.oshawalibrary.ca/pdfportal/pdfskins/kaiser/kaiser.pdf, page 13.
  • Note: 8 October 1804; Persqu'ile Point, Newcastle District, Upper Canada; "The vessel sailed from York in the morning, Sept. 7 1803. At sunset, Farewell and Lockwood encamped at Dean's Creek, a few miles below Cobourg, the vessel being abreast of them several miles in the lake. During the night, a fearful storm arose, and not one of the 39 on the vessel was left to tell the particulars of the burial in an Ontario grave." The Story of the Speedy in Historic Sketches of Oshawa, http://localhistory.oshawalibrary.ca/pdfportal/pdfskins/kaiser/kaiser.pdf, page 13 & 14.
  • Note: 12 October 1804; Persqu'ile Point, Newcastle District, Upper Canada; "After waiting two or three days at Weller's, Farewell and Lockwood returned to Annis' Creek. On the 4th April, 1804, Mr. Farewell was married to Elizabeth Annis, whose family emigrated from Pennsylvania a year or two before and settled at the above named creek." The Story of the Speedy in Historic Sketches of Oshawa, http://localhistory.oshawalibrary.ca/pdfportal/pdfskins/kaiser/kaiser.pdf, page 14.
  • Note*: 1842; Oshawa, York Co., Canada West; "In 1842, Skae, the postmaster, applied for official post office status, but was informed the community needed a better name. Moody Farewell was requested to ask his native acquaintances what they called the area; their reply was "Oshawa," which translates to "where we must leave our canoes". Thus, the name of Oshawa, one of the primary "motor cities" of Canada, has the meaning "where we have to get out and walk". The name "Oshawa" was adopted and the post office named accordingly. In 1849, the requirements for incorporation were were eased, and Oshawa was incorporated as a village in 1850." from Wikipedia - Oshawa.
    Notes: This was Edward Skae who had come in 1836 to Windsor (named after the harbour at the lake) and set up a store at the corner of Kingston Road and Simcoe St.; the village came to be known for a time as Skae's Corners until it was named as a postal station in 1842. Oshawa was part of the East Whitby Township which was in York County, East Riding, until Ontario County was created in 1852.5

    Note: Reuben Hudson is above. Ontario County had just been created; before Whitby Twp. was part of York Co.. Since this is between the Act of Union in 1841 and Confederation in 1867, it is Canada West, not Ontario.2

  • Married Name: 27 August 1792; Crawford
  • Residence: 1793; York, Canada; " ... in the summer of 1793, he located at York, (now Toronto,) as the future capital of the Province. Mrs. Farewell, with her family, and other settlers, crossed to York with the Government. Only a few shanties had been erected, but soon clearings were made, roads were constructed, and the place soon became celebrated for mosquitoes and mud. Messrs. Berry and St. John were Indian traders at the Humber, but moved their business to York the following spring, and built the first respectable house in the place. It was made of hewn logs. Upon the Governor's first call for the Indians to recieve the presents from the King, about 10,000 assembled." The Story of the Speedy in Historic Sketches of Oshawa, http://localhistory.oshawalibrary.ca/pdfportal/pdfskins/kaiser/kaiser.pdf, page 10.
  • Residence: 1794; York Co., Upper Canada; "In 1794, Mrs. Farewell became Mrs. Crawford. He (a sergeant in the army) purchased his discharge, and 300 acres of land were located in Etobicoke, for the family. The elder boys were to commence farming, but A. M. was to learn a trade. Mr. Bond, newly arrived immigrant, a hatter by trade, engaged to instruct young Farewell in the art of making hats, and being an economist, and a genius, he conceived the brilliant idea of producing his own materials by raising muskrats and beaver. He obtained land north of York, and commenced operations at Bond's Lake, but the following spring, Bond and young Farewell returned to York, and the muskrat and beaver dispersed, but Bond's name still adheres to the Lake. The hatting business was abandoned by both master and apprentice - the latter joining the family upon the farm. Improvements were commenced in good ernest, but the step-father became fond of strong drink; debts were contracted, the farm was sold, the money disappeared, and the family scattered; A. M. going to Maiden, where he took up a free lot in that newly laid out village."

Family 1: Jonathon "John" Farewell b. 28 Aug 1729, d. Oct 1781

  • Marriage*: 1772; Vermont, U.S.A.; "The Farewell Settlement, Harmony; Robert Bennett, of Massachusetts, was the first white man in Vermont, at the junction of the White and Connecticut Rivers. In 1770, three brothers, Farewell, emigrants from London, settled in the Connecticut Valley, and John married Mr. Bennett's daughter, Sarah. The subject of this narrative was the fifth and youngest child (four boys and one girl) of this marriage, and was born at the said river junction, on the first day of January, 1782." from Historic Sketches of Oshawa, pg. 9, http://localhistory.oshawalibrary.ca/pdfportal/pdfskins/kaiser/kaiser.pdf
    Date 1772 per GEDCOM of Otto (rootsbeg@shaw.ca) Feb 12 2017.; Principal=Jonathon "John" Farewell1

Family 2: Sergeant James Crawford b. c 1750

  • Marriage*: 27 August 1792; York Co., Upper Canada; "Weddings at Niagara, 1792; Aug ..... 27. Corporal Crawford and Widow Farewell." Ontario Historical Society Papers and Records, Volume III, page 53.
    Note: A researcher interested in Charles Selleck and George Gibson history, sent me the marriage info for Charles Selleck and Elizabeth Gibson in Niagara in 1797. I downloaded the PDF containing Volume III saw this item with the name Farewell. Sarah Bennet was John Farewell's wife. He had died in 1781 and she came with her kids to Newark and then York. She got land at York and this Crawford proved to be less than useful, but her kids were looked after and given a good start in the new country.
    The name Crawford also comes from The Story of the Speedy in Historic Sketches of Oshawa, http://localhistory.oshawalibrary.ca/pdfportal/pdfskins/kaiser/kaiser.pdf, page 11.; Principal=Sergeant James Crawford
