  • Occupation*: 1806; North West Company, English River, Rupert's Land, Canada; "Robert Henry was the son of a merchant-trader in Albany who, during the American revolution, provided the Continental Army with supplies brought from the province of Quebec. These supplies were procured with specie and when he was not repaid in full he faced financial ruin. Following the war, the Henry family moved to Montreal, where Robert was educated. He entered the North West Company as a clerk in 1806 and subsequently worked on the English (upper Churchill) River under Donald McTavish* and John Duncan Campbell. Henry became a company partner in 1810, at which time he was trading on the Churchill River. Between 1810 and 1815 he served in the Athabasca department, and upon coming back to Montreal in 1815 was elected to the Beaver Club." per BIO of Robert Henry, Dictionary of Canadian Biographies - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/henry_robert_8E.html2
  • Occupation: 1816; Red River Settlement, Rupert's Land, Canada; "In the spring of 1816 Henry returned to the northwest, where he played a minor role in asserting the interests of the NWC as tension grew between it and both the Hudson’s Bay Company and the Red River settlement [see Thomas Douglas*]. He was called upon in June to lead a group of Indians from Fort William (Thunder Bay, Ont.) to the
    Red River as a show of force; in late 1816 he participated in the harassment of HBC men who had built Fort Wedderburn on Lake Athabasca [see JOHN CLARKE]. The strain which Henry felt during this period of hostility prompted him to remark in August 1816 that he was “much inclined to leave this rascally Country for ever.” Because trade was sagging, the company needed every man in the field and Alexander Henry persuaded him to remain another winter." per BIO of Robert Henry, Dictionary of Canadian Biographies - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/henry_robert_8E.html2
  • Residence*: 1817; Hamilton Twp., Hamilton, Newcastle District, Upper Canada; "Robert Henry retired from the fur trade in 1817 and settled at Hamilton (Cobourg), Upper Canada. With James Gray Bethune, he purchased property there that September and erected a grist-mill. Under Henry’s management, the operation came to be the principal mill in the Newcastle District. Two months after the purchase of the
    property, Henry married Bethune’s sister Christine and thus became the brother-in-law of ANGUS, another NWC partner, and Alexander Neil*, who became the Church of England rector at Cobourg in 1827" per BIO of Robert Henry, Dictionary of Canadian Biographies - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/henry_robert_8E.html2
  • Note: 1822; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Mr. Henry is most entertaining and friendly, showing such kindness in many ways. They live scarcely a mile from us, and own one of the largest flour mills in Canada. Mr. Henry was for twenty-five years in the North-West fur trade. During that time he never came home, and endured all sorts of hardships; one
    winter when provisions fell-short, he and his companions were obliged to cut up leather aprons and their shoes to keep off starvation. Mrs. Henry is pleasing, improves very much on acquaintance, and seems greatly attached
    to her husband who is much older than she is." from "Our Forest Home, Being Extracts from the Correspondence of the Late Frances Stewart", compiled and edited by her daughter E. S. Dunlop, page 21.5
  • Residence: January 1823; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "While her husband went into the wilds of Peterborough County to prepare a log house, Mrs. Stewart enjoyed the aristocratic society of Cobourg. Mrs. Henry, she wrote, "improves very much on acquaintance, and seems greatly attached to her husband who is much older"; and her mother, Mrs. Bethune, was "a fine, merry old lady who lives in a little cottage just opposite the Henry's house". Captain and Mrs. Boswell were "very pleasing and very kind", and lived east of the village, not far from the present "Kingston Crossing". Afternoon teas were enjoyed at these homes, and sometimes dancing followed; and sleighing parties were popular on dear, frosty nights.
    The Bethunes had lived in Cobourg five years, James Gray Bethune being the first postmaster and prominent in banking and real estate, as well as being a merchant; in 1826 he opened a branch store in Peterborough, and when he went bankrupt some years later many settlers lost heavily. The ladies of these families felt no lack of money for such luxuries as were available. "They dress in very smart, suitable style,” wrote Mrs. Stewart. "They think nothing of giving fifty or one hundred guineas for a fur muff or tippet. Indeed fur is much used. The sleighs are delightfully lined with it and so comfortable." "Squire" Henry took Mrs. Stewart to repay the calls of friends settled east of the village. "We went first”, she wrote, "to the Covert's, who are very decidedly English; then to Captain Boswell's where we remained for tea; two other English families were here, the Faulkners and the Sowdens from Bath. They came to Cobourg a year and a half ago, and now have the nicest farms here, with every comfort. The people here have a book society among themselves, each member paying four dollars per an-
    Robert Henry told her of his experiences before he came to Cobourg. "He was for 25 years in the Northwest fur trade”, says Mrs. Stewart, "and endured all sorts of hardships. One winter when provisions fell short he and his companions were obliged to cut up their leather aprons and shoes to keep starvation off." His mill near Cobourg was "one of the largest flour mills in Canada"." from "Cobourg 1798-1948" by Edwin C. Guillet, pg. 13.6
  • Note: 1832; King St. E. & Henry St., Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "After selling the mill for £6,000 in 1831, Henry operated a private bank in his house in Cobourg and by 1832 had become agent there for the Commercial Bank of the Midland District. Despite later efforts by others to charter a Cobourg bank, Henry’s was the only one in the community." per BIO of Robert Henry, Dictionary of Canadian Biographies - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/henry_robert_8E.html
    "Very quickly, on the left, was College Street, which sloped gently up to Upper Canada Academy, and on the northeast corner of King and College Streets were the lovely grounds of St. Peter’s Anglican Church. A little farther along, on the south side of King Street, at the corner of Henry Street, was the home of one of Cobourg’s most revered citizens. Robert Henry8 was a nephew of the famous fur trader and explorer, Alexander Henry. He had worked as a trader in the north with the upstart North West Company, during some of the most dangerous years of the conflict with
    the Hudson Bay Company. In 1816, he decided to leave the tensions of the fur trade
    and settle in Cobourg. Very quickly, he established a partnership with James Gray
    Bethune in a grist mill and several other commercial enterprises." from "38 Hours To Montreal: William Weller and the Governor Generals' Race of 1840", by Dan Buchanan, pg. 94.2
  • Note: 1834; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Although Henry prospered he did not die an exceptionally wealthy man; his estate totalled $28,000. It is possible that he lost money covering some of the debts of James Gray Bethune, who had suffered bankruptcy in 1834." per BIO of Robert Henry, Dictionary of Canadian Biographies - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/henry_robert_8E.html2
  • Note: 1837; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "Henry served as a justice of the peace from 1818 until the late 1830s, and as Cobourg’s first treasurer in 1837 after its establishment as a police village. Although aligned by social standing with Cobourg’s oligarchy of political leaders, American-born businessmen, and British half pay officers, he was less active than many in local institutions and politics, nor did he invest in local improvement schemes. He presumably preferred conventional investments, which included bonds and securities, and the poor record of such local ventures as the Cobourg and Peterborough Rail-way vindicated his caution. Although Henry prospered he did not die an exceptionally wealthy man; his estate
    totalled $28,000. It is possible that he lost money covering some of the debts of James Gray Bethune, who had suffered bankruptcy in 1834. Henry nevertheless lived quietly in his old age surrounded by a number of former NWC and HBC fur traders such as Jacob Corrigal, William Nourse, and John Dugald CAMERON who had also chosen the Cobourg area for their retirement." per BIO of Robert Henry, Dictionary of Canadian Biographies - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/henry_robert_8E.html2
  • Note*: July 1839; Cobourg, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "This enterprise made him a target of the celebrated “Cobourg conspiracy,” one of the Patriot-inspired border incursions launched from the United States in the aftermath of the rebellion of 1837–38. In late July 1839 a group of dissidents led from New York by Benjamin LETT and Samuel Peters Hart conspired to rob and murder Henry and to attack other area residents, including George Strange Boulton* and his nephew D’Arcy Edward Boulton (prominent Cobourg tories), Maurice Jaynes (a wealthy farmer), and Sheppard McCormick (a participant in 1837 in the capture of the Patriot supply ship Caroline). The attack was presumably designed to spark both an invasion by other filibusterers and an uprising in an area where several Hunters’ Lodges, formed to change Canada into a republic, had appeared. As the conspirators hatched this plot, one of their number, Henry J. Moon, became agitated by the murderous intent of the band and revealed the plan to an intended victim, D’Arcy Edward Boulton. A force was mounted and the conspirators were stopped before they could carry out their attacks. During the ensuing trial, at which Boulton acted for the defence, the conspirators and two local sympathizers were found guilty. Henry was described by the prosecution as one of Cobourg’s “most respectable and inoffensive inhabitants.” per BIO of Robert Henry, Dictionary of Canadian Biographies - http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/henry_robert_8E.html2

  • Note*: circa 1824; Montreal, Quebec; "As a merchant-storekeeper Bethune endured where others failed because he was able to forge a solid mercantile connection with Montreal merchants through his brother Norman, a well-placed merchant and forwarder there. But it is also clear that
    Bethune was an aggressive and innovative businessman who championed the economic
    development of the Newcastle District, and particularly trade connections through
    Cobourg to its hinterland." per Dictionary of Canadian Biogrpahy, James Gray Bethune. http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/bethune_james_gray_7E.html2
