Peter Russell1

M, #99281, b. 11 June 1733, d. 30 September 1808
  • Birth*: 11 June 1733; Cork Co., Ireland; "RUSSELL, PETER, office holder, politician, and judge; b. 11 June 1733 in Cork (Republic of Ireland), only son of
    Richard Russell and his first wife, Elizabeth Warnar; d. 30 Sept. 1808 in York (Toronto), Upper Canada." Dictionary of Canadian Biographies, Peter Russell.
    Date 1733 & location Cork, Ireland per family tree of jashowell_1 on ancestry.ca, Jan 6 2019.1,2
  • Death*: 30 September 1808; York, York Co., Upper Canada; "RUSSELL, PETER, office holder, politician, and judge; b. 11 June 1733 in Cork (Republic of Ireland), only son of
    Richard Russell and his first wife, Elizabeth Warnar; d. 30 Sept. 1808 in York (Toronto), Upper Canada." Dictionary of Canadian Biographies, Peter Russell.
    Date 1808 & location York per family tree of jashowell_1 on ancestry.ca, Jan 6 2019.1,2
  • Note*: circa 1750; Ireland; "Peter Russell was the son of an improvident Irish army officer who claimed without much evidence to be related
    to the Duke of Bedford. His formal education consisted of boarding for four years with the Reverend Barton
    Parkinson, first at Cork and then at Kinsale, where he shared studies and a bed with his first cousin William
    WILLCOCKS and where he became “a very pretty Schollar” according to Parkinson." Dict. Cdn. BIOs.2
  • Note: 2 June 1792; Quebec, Quebec; "In 1790, then, when Upper Canada was about to come into existence, Russell was struggling to support himself and Elizabeth on a captain’s half pay, his patron having lost all influence through his quarrel with Cornwallis. Clinton and other fellow officers, including SIMCOE whom Russell had met in America, still tried to help, and in the summer of 1790, when Simcoe was promised the lieutenant governorship of Upper
    Canada, it seemed as if Russell too was to be fortunate. In October he accepted the position of secretary to Andrew Elliott, who was going as British minister to the United States, but Elliott eventually declined the posting, destroying Russell’s prospects. Simcoe then recommended Russell to Home Secretary Henry Dundas on 12 Aug. 1791 for appointment as Upper Canadian receiver and auditor general with seats on the Executive and Legislative councils. The appointments were approved in September, although Russell’s commission was not issued until
    31 Dec. 1791 and not received until a year later. He still hoped for something better since he would have to give up his half pay in return for only £300 a year, but when nothing materialized he left England in the spring with his half sister, Chief Justice William Osgoode*, and Attorney General John White*, arriving at Quebec on 2 June 1792." Dict. Cdn. BIO - Peter Russell. http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/russell_peter_5E.html.2
  • Note: 20 July 1796; York, York Co., Upper Canada; "On 1 Dec. 1795 Simcoe requested leave of absence, and recommended that Russell, “the senior Executive Counsellor,
    (not a Roman Catholick) and . . . in all respects the proper person” be chosen to administer the government. Russell was appointed administrator on 20 July 1796, and on the following day Simcoe left York. At 63, Russell was in a position of authority for the first time in his life." http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/russell_peter_5E.html.2

    My dear Cousin; I was this day favored with your kind letter for which I thank you but am very sorry to find by it that you are so much indisposed and out of spirits which you must not give way to but keep them up and hope for the best. I have spent a very dull month since my brother left home and have not been altogether well. I got a letter from him this morning which gives me hopes of seeing him very soon. I hope you have heard from Ireland and that my cousins are all well. We have no letters or anything from England by the Fleet which is a very great disappointment as I hoped to have heard from all my friends and expected several things I had sent for. You no doubt have seen Mr. White— he and Mr. Pilkington must have had a very disagreeable voyage of it to York as there has been a great deal of rain since they set off. The Mrs. Smiths are well and often inquire about you—when you see Mrs. Maccauley give my love to her and tell her that I was in great hopes of hearing from her but have not had that pleasure. I am glad you have got a House and hope when you unpacked your Wares that you found them all safe from damage. Poor Mary is grown much worse since you left us. We have sent her to a Mrs. Tices who lives on the mountain who is a good kind of a woman and very careful of her. Her cough hag got better since she has been there but she is grown very thin and looks shockingly and I fear she will never recover her health again. I have no news but what you must have heard long ago. I must conclude as Mr. Paxton is going to sail, accept my good wishes and believe me to be your affectionate Cousin.; July 19 1796 E. R."

    Capt. Paxton arrived this morning and about half an hour ago gave me your letter also one from Wilcocks. ....
    Mary's cough is not worse but she grows very thin and I fear her Temper will not long suffer her to agree with Mrs. Tice with whom I am afraid she is beginning to play her tricks. I am glad I did not know you had a sore throat for it would have made me miserable. Thank God you have got rid of it and hope you will be home at the time you propose Give my good wishes to White. I must now conclude as Paxton will sail this Evening. So God Bless you and believe to be ever my dear Peters affectionate. E. Russell; July 19th 1796.; Addressed:—Honble Peter Russell York."

    Date 1818 & location Sandwich per family tree of AJaneGoodwin46 on ancestry.ca, Jan 7 2019.2,3
  • Residence*: 1758; Albany, New York; "John Askin came to North America in 1758 and was a sutler with the British army at Albany, N.Y." from Dict. Cdn. BIO.3
  • Residence: circa 1765; Mackinaw City, Michigan, U.S.A.; "Following the capitulation of New France he entered the western fur trade and formed a series of partnerships, the most notable of which included Major Robert Rogers*. Bankrupted by Pontiac*’s uprising of 1763, the firm was dissolved, but Askin was not cleared of his debts until 1771. Meanwhile, some time
    in the mid 1760s Askin had moved to Michilimackinac (Mackinaw City, Mich.). He ran a trading store in the settlement, was commissary for the garrison, and farmed. It was at Michilimackinac that he formed the close ties with traders Isaac TODD, James MCGILL, and Alexander Henry* that were to be of such significance in his business and personal life. He also established a cordial relationship with Arent Schuyler DePeyster*, commandant during the 1770s, and had likely been on good terms with his predecessors as well. Not only were such friendships valuable in themselves to Askin; they were also important to his economic interests. Commandants were in a position to regulate trade with the Indians, allocate shipping space (private vessels being prohibited on the Great Lakes during and after the American revolution), and tacitly
    approve illegal purchases of land from the Indians." Dict. Cdn. BIO3
  • Residence: 1780; Detroit, Wayne Co., Michigan, U.S.A.; "In 1780 a conflict with Patrick SINCLAIR, who had recently arrived to take charge at Michilimackinac, may have been
    instrumental in Askin’s decision to move to Detroit (Mich.)." Dict. Cdn. BIO.3
  • Residence: 1802; Strabane, Sandwich, Upper Canada; "Although Askin continued to reside in Detroit after it was turned over to the Americans in 1796, he chose to remain a British subject and became a JP for the Western District of Upper Canada in 1796. In the spring of 1802 Askin moved to Sandwich, a change of location he had apparently been intending to make for some time." Dict. Cdn. BIO.3
