11 "A Westmount Pioneer" (see Obit in Library/William Greig/Item 7)

Lived in Bridgeton Glasgow until 1859 when he went to Australia.

Returned to Glasgow in 1861 to marry Oct 1 1861 and land in Montreal Nov 1, 1861.

Served four years in the Montreal Garrison Artillery Volunteer Brigade at the time of the Trent Affair (a row between USA and Britain during the American Civil War - no actual battles).

Excerpts about him from the Obit:
"- Mr & Mrs Greig became considerable factors in the development of Cote St Antoine into the Westmount of today.
- A man of vision and his work for many years will not soon be forgotten.
- Connected with the large foundry business of Warden King for nearly half a century.
- A sturdy Presbyterian. An early member of Melville Church, Cote St Antoine. An elder and clerk of the session for many years.
- A member of the masonic order.
- Typical Scottish Canadian. Upright in all his dealings, alert and vigorous, strong in opinion and of wide reading, he was a type of those of earlier days who have made for us the Canada of today."

Due to ill health in 1910 moved to Baltimore for its more mild climate. Lived at 2000 Madison Ave, at the intersection with Presstman St (in 2018 Google Street View shows this address as the end unit of a 3 unit 3 storey brick townhouse block. Probably the original building, though maybe new in 1910).

William Cowan found (March 19, 2020):
"In the US Federal Census of 1920, three households are shown within 2000 Madison Avenue:
• The Silberman family of 9 with Tonchum Silberman shown as head of house
• The Greig family of 3
• The Meyer family of 2
• Someone has boarder named Charles Steen, carpenter

William, Elizabeth and their daughter Margaret are shown as aliens with Margaret immigrating in 1907 and her parents in 1910. It states that Margaret is 42 and William and Elizabeth are 82 (John notes that William was 2 years older than Elizabeth). Margaret is listed as a music teacher and for employment as “Own Account” as opposed to employee. Presumably she gave private music lessons, perhaps to kids after school.The Greigs are shown as renters.

Other interesting things about 2000 Madison Avenue that can be learned from the 1920 census. Tonchum Silberman (age 55) is stated as owner – presumably of their third of 2000 Madison Avenue. It states that he was born in Russia with Yiddish as his mother tongue. His wife was born in New York of Russian parents. Tonchum’s mother lives with them and is shown as 82 years of age. It says the mother is an alien having immigrated in 1890. She appears to only speak Yiddish. Tonchum is shown as a manufacturer in the dry goods business and as an employer. Their 6 children range in age from 8 years old to 27. The three sons are all shown as being in the dry goods manufacturing business, the 27 and 20 year olds shown as “employer” and the 18 year old as a wage earner. Perhaps Tonchum was intent on passing his dry goods business to his sons."

His son Wickliffe's Marriage License (Library/Wickliffe Greig/Item 3a) lists William's 'rank or profession' in 1911 as "Gentleman." Maybe that means retired. There is no evidence he attended the wedding in Toronto, though he may have.

Died in South Bristol where he was spending the summer.(See picture in Library Item 4)

Justice of the Peace for the City and district of Montreal since 1890.

Served in the Town as Councillor, Council of Westmount, for 7 years.

Lived at 400 Cote St Antoine ("Ardchoille" gaelic for 'wooded heights') Westmount according to the 1904-05 "Dau's Society Blue Book" found at the Toronto Public Library https://archive.org/stream/daussocietyblueb00montuoft#page/68/mode/2up. Also living with him were his wife, son Wickliffe and presumably his Mother-in-law "Mrs nee Rodger". His son William Jr lived down the street at #326 with his wife.

By 1911 he had moved to 539 Grosvenor Ave, Westmount, accoring to Dau's Society Blue Book 1911

17 5 daughters, moved to Portland Oregon, died in California (see Andrew Jeffrey Library, Item 10 Page 2)

From Wikitree: Alexander was living in Montana at the time his brother, William, died in 1908.Alexander and his family are listed in the 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 United States censuses. In 1900, they lived in Missoula, Montana (his job is listed as a RR Brakeman), in 1910 and 1920, they lived in Portland, Oregon, and in 1930, they lived in Bakersfield, California.

18 A blacksmith and feuer. 1798 tax roles show him as a smith in Chirnside, with his brother Peter (See Library Item 2).

Instrumental in formation of a Reform Presbyterian Church

1793-1802 financial records of Chirnside United Secession Church show him as a donor most years, according to Jim Jeffrey's research in Scotland in May 2018 (email to John Cowan May 23). No earlier records were found, but later records did not include donations from Andrew Jeffrey. These records also list him as an officer of that Church.

(Oral communication in about 1975 from Eileen Hutchison (daughter of Mary) who was about 5 years old at the time of said party. Eileen vividily remmebers reports of this exciting event.) See William Greig Library Item #5.

Eileen reported that her family rented a cottage near the Greig's rented cottage at South Bristol, Maine, when she was a kid, roughly 1910-1915. See Wickliffe Library Item #9 and William Library Item #4.

In the milling and distilling business when married (according to George Matheson in 2000 - see Library\William Campbell Jeffrey Materials\1-Mathieson Letter May 7 2000)

Census and Assessment records reviewed by Bill Campbell show that George lived on the east half of Lot 16, Conc 3, Otonabee twp. John Graham reports finding that he purchased the NE quarter of that lot registered Jan 28, 1822. in 1825 he bought the SE quarter. In 1855 he bought the NW quarter. The 1861 Agricultuural census shows him on Lot 16 with 150 acres (more than one lot?).

His will of Mar 8, 1860, gives all his property to sone John Lyal.

Not found in any cemetery. Speculation he was buried on the farm. John Cowan went to the farm Sept 19, 2019 to inquire about old burials. Current owner said he knew of none, but that there had been one soouth on Villiers Line (adjacent to property) that had been removed to make way for a golf course. John visited Bellmer Winds Resort golf course (1235 Villiers Line) and determined it had been there 11 years but the current owner is not the owner that developed it. Township office reports that no burials were moved from the golf course, however a native burial ground near the lake was left in tact.

William Campbell speculated that he was buried in St Peters Anglican's burial ground since Bill determined he was married at St Peters. (Bill's letter to John Graham Oct 29, 1990). However John Cowan learned in 2019 at a Lakeshore Genealogical Society meeting that back then marriages were not recognized by the governments of the day unless they were consecreated in the Anglican Church (example of the the power of the 'family compact'). So marriage records at St Peters are not positive evidence he was Anglican. (John's March 2020 question - could this have been St Peters Presbyterian in Peterborough?)

48 Blacksmith in Foulden, Berwickshire, where his son Andrew was born.

He was shown here in the 1798 tax roles (see William Jeffrey Library Item 2, Page 2)

?? Rented property at Swinewood Mills in 1804, until emigrating to Canada around 1820 (see William Jeffrey Library Item 2).

Family tradition - He came to Canada to help repair the St Louis Gate in Quebec City, in 1819, before the rest of the family came. (see Misc Stuff Library Item 4, Page 11)

Settled on a farm near Keene Ontario but not found in 1842 census (see Misc Stuff Library Item 4 Page 11)

Still alive when his wife Mary died in 1857 (see William Jeffrey Library Item 2, page 1).

No evidence of his death or burial. Bill Campbell speculated that he is buried in his son-in-law George Gillespie's plot, somewhere (see Misc Stuff Library Item 4 Page 11) or maybe St Peters Anglican burial ground since it seems George was Anglican.

John Graham reports that George H. Jeffrey of Yarker Ontario wrote in a letter to John that "William Jeffrey went to Peterborough England to work on the cathedral there." So maybe he did not die in Canada?
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Jim Jeffrey's Notes Nov 17, 2019

William Jeffrey was born in the 1770s in Berwickshire, probably in the village of Chirnside. His actual birth date and birth place is unknown, because there is no record of a baptism recorded in the Scottish Old Parish Registers. His birth date is assumed to be in the 1770s because his name is recorded at the baptisms of his first two children, Andrew and Isabella, which occurred in 1800 and 1801 in Foulden parish, Berwickshire. It is assumed that he would’ve been between 21 and 29 when he first became a father. The witnesses at the baptism of his first son, Andrew, were Andrew Jeffrey and Peter Jeffrey. It is assumed that the first witness, Andrew Jeffrey, would’ve been William’s father, because in the traditional Scottish naming pattern the firstborn son is named after his paternal grandfather (his father's father).
Tax records have survived for many of the Scottish parishes from the 18th century. In the Assessed Tax rolls from July 1798 for the village of Foulden (1 year 7 months before the birth of Andrew Jeffrey), a “William Jeffrey, smith Foulden” is listed. In the same Assessed Tax rolls from August 1798 for Chirnside (a village 4 miles west of Foulden), an “Andrew Jeffrey, smith Chirnside” and “Peter Jeffrey, smith Chirnside” are listed. These three men are believed to be the ‘Jeffreys’ listed on the baptism record of William’s first son, Andrew. The Jeffreys of Berwickshire have traditionally been known to have dominated the profession of blacksmiths in the area.
“Andrew Jeffrey, elder” is listed among the 115 names on a document, dated 29 February 1782, calling John Reid to be the pastor of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Chirnside. Assuming that an elder would have a significant history with a congregation before assuming the office of elder, Andrew would’ve been active in this church for at least a large part of the 1770s. This is why William is assumed to have been born in Chirnside.
The first record of William is in an account written by a “reader” of the Berwick Journal in 1888. The Berwick Journal was a weekly newspaper, and widely circulated in Northumberland, England and Berwickshire, Scotland. In a letter to the editor, dated 11 January 1888, this “reader” stated the following:
“In the end of the last, or the beginning of the present century, toll-bars were first placed on Berwickshire roads. Popular feeling against the tolls ran so high that a number of them were burned down. My father’s uncle, William Jeffrey [who, earlier in this account, was described as a son of Andrew Jeffrey of Chirnside], was one of those who took part in the burning of the tolls. The country was scoured by military in search of the depredators, and a number of apprehensions took place. William Jeffrey was, however, able to escape. He lay for a considerable time in Whitehall plantation, concealed by its dense foliage, and was supplied with food under cover of night. How long he hid there I do not know, but in the end he fled to America.”
The facts of this account have not been verified. There were documented “toll riots” in 1792 in Dunse, Greenlaw, Chirnside, and Paxton. But since this “reader” is writing > 95 years after the riots, the details might have been “embellished” a bit. If this account is true, William would’ve been in his late teens or early 20s at the time of the riots.
William’s name next occurs in the financial records of the Chirnside United Secession Church (the Reformed Presbyterian Church mentioned above) from 1798-1802. This dissenting church kept records of individuals/families in the congregation who gave funds to the church, whether offerings, tithes, renting a pew, etc. William’s name is recorded as giving offerings in 1798, 1799, 1800, 1801, and 1802. His father, Andrew Jeffrey, was an elder in this church in Chirnside, and his name shows up prominently in these records. William’s connection with this Chirnside church begs the question: Why were his first two children baptized in the Foulden Parish Kirk, and not in the Chirnside Kirk? No answer has been found to this question.
It was around this time (1798 or 1799) that William Jeffrey married Mary Edna Lyall, and worked as a blacksmith in the village of Foulden. The date of their marriage is uncertain because there are no records of the marriage in the Scottish OPRs. Their marriage was official, however, because at the baptism of their first son, Andrew in 1800, he is described as a “lawfull son” to William and Mary. As previously mentioned, they had a son born in 1800 (Andrew), a daughter in 1801 (Isabella), and then another daughter, Jean, born in 1803. There is no record of her baptism in Scotland.
William next appears in the official recording of a ‘tack’ (rental agreement) to possess the land and mill at Swinewood in Berwickshire, Scotland, commencing 26 May 1804. He is described as “William Jeffrey, smith in Foulden.” Swinewood is 5 ½ miles away from Foulden. The tack agreement was for William Jeffrey and his family to reside at Swinewood for 19 years. Swinewood Mill functioned as a corn mill on the Eye Water, a river that flows from the Lammermuir Hills east to the North Sea. This agreement meant that, for at least part of every year, William’s occupation would be a ‘miller.’ During the rest of the year, he could also function as a blacksmith, and there is evidence that a ‘smithy’ was located on the premises at this time. In the previous account of William, published in the ‘Berwick Journal,’ after the writer’s account of the Toll Riots and William traveling to America, he said, “He [William’] was a miller to trade, and was highly successful in America.”
After William and his family moved to Swinewood, they had two more children, a daughter, Catherine, born in 1806, and another daughter, Mary, born in 1809. There are no records of births or baptisms of these two children. Mary is buried in Woodstock, Oxford, Ontario, Canada, and her gravestone simply states she was born in “Berwick, Scotland.”
At this point in time, William’s story becomes a matter of conjecture. Two ‘Jeffrey’ historians describe his journey as follows:
• William M. Campbell, in his "The Family History of The Jeffrey-Masson Family" (November 1990), says, "Family tradition has it that [William] came out to Canada, probably in 1819, to help rebuild the St. Louis Gate at Quebec City. Again, according to family tradition, Mary (his wife) and their children came out to join William somewhat later."
• John A. Graham, in his Jeffrey research, states it this way, "Family tradition has it that [William] came to Canada alone, to help rebuild the St. Louis Gate in Quebec City. This would probably be in the period 1801-1802, or possibly up to 1819. Again, family tradition claims that Mary and her family followed William to Canada."
• William M. Campbell also, in a correspondence letter in 1991, stated the following: "One of Andrew Jeffrey's grand-daughters, Ethelwyn Hutchison, had a scrapbook which contained some information in a somewhat disorganized fashion, and she claimed that William Jeffrey came to Canada first to rebuild the St. Louis gate in Quebec City. This is a general family tradition, so I am sure it is correct. His wife, Mary, and the rest of the family are supposed to have come out later and they settled on a farm at Keene, Ontario - near Peterborough. I have tried to confirm this through land records but without success, since the records at that time are not very good. Another dead end is where William was buried. According to Ethel Hutchison, he was buried in Keene Cemetery, but my wife and I searched it last June (1990) without success. He was supposed to be in the plot of his son-in-law, George Gillespie, but we did not find George's plot there, either. But George and Isabella Jeffrey were married in an Anglican church and their children were also baptised in this denomination, so I suspect that the Gillespie plot may be wherever the Anglicans buried, and that William Jeffrey may be buried there."
It is known that Mary Lyall Jeffrey came to Canada with her children in 1820, and eventually settled in Cobourg. But the whereabouts of her husband, William, have not been discovered. At Mary’s burial, in the Little Lake Cemetery in Peterborough in May 1857, the cemetery records show that her next of kin was her husband, W. Jeffrey. This most certainly would mean that William was still living, and in the area. No other information has been uncovered about William Jeffrey.
