Notes: John Brodie was a carpenter by trade who had been a shipbuilder on the River Clyde in Scotland. He emigrated to Canada and settled in Ekfrid township. He appears there in the 1852 census of Ekfrid township staying with Hugh Brodie, next door to his fiancee Chirsty Campbell. In January 1852 he purchased 145.5 acres of bushland in Caradoc for $90 and farmed there, the farm remaining in the Brodie family for 105 years. It would appear that John Brodie was buried first at the Murray Cemetery in Ekfrid, and then possibly moved to Cook's Cemetery in Caradoc to join his wife. At least the death date on the individual in the Murray Cemetery is too close to be a coincidence, although the age is seriously out.

He married Christena Campbell in 1855 at Ekfrid or Caradoc, Middlesex, ON, CA. 16

Christena Campbell was the daughter of Duncan Campbell and Janet Clark. She was born on 25 June 1830 at Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland. 17 She immigrated from Scotland via New York in 1846 in Ontario, Canada. 18 She worked as a Farmer in 1891 at Caradoc, Middlesex, ON, CA. 19 She lived in 1901 at Middlemiss, Ekfrid, Middlesex, ON, CA. 17 She lived in 1911 at Sect 168 con 2 [Mt Brydges], Caradoc, Middlesex, ON, CA. 20 She lived in 1921 at lot 17 con 2, Caradoc, Middlesex, ON, CA. 21 She died on 22 March 1931 at Caradoc, Middlesex, ON, CA. 22 The cause of death was cardiac failure22 . She was buried on 24 March 1931 at Cook's U.C. Cemetery, Caradoc, Middlesex, ON, CA. 22

Notes: For a brief period Miss Campbell was a resident of London on the site where the Tecumseh Hotel stood. She remembered being at the track side when the first railway train came into London. Of sturdy Scottish stock, Miss Campbell, who was allowed one day in a month from her work, used to walk from the city to her home near Middlemiss, attend church there and walk back to the city." In the 1891 census her daughter Bessie and son John were still living with her on the farm. Retiring she took up residence in Mt. Brydges with her daughter Sara. Mrs. Brodie attended the tri-annual reunions of the Campbell Clan until her death at the age of 100 years, 8 months, and 24 days.18

The Province of Upper Canada was separated from the Province of Quebec in 1791 to create a colony that was subject to English law and the protestant Church of England as opposed to the remainder, which became the Province of Lower Canada, subject to French civil law and with an extablished Roman Catholic church.

As a result of the revolts in 1837 against the established administrations in both Lower and Upper Canada the two colonies were merged in 1841 by the Act of Union (1840).  Formally the western province was Canada West, although most people continued to refer to it as Upper Canada.

This entry is used retrospectively for events occuring in the colony of Upper Canada from its founding in 1791 to its merger into the Colony of Canada as Canada West in 1841, and for events occuring in Canada West from 1841 to Confederation in 1867 when it became the province of Ontario within the Dominion of Canada. This is consistent with the way that events are described in official documents such as censuses recorded after 1867.
