Notes: John Gale emigrated from Yorkshire England as part of the massive upheaval in both the Industrial and Agricultural Revolutions in England, and the emphasis on developing the land with British subjects before the Americans poured up from the south. They were given a lot of assistance both in passage and job locations. In the 1901 census John was enumerated twice, first at his home, where it is recorded that he immigrated to Canada in 1869, and then at work at the Insane Asylum, where it is recorded that he immigrated in 1882. The second date seems more reliable since he would have only been 12 years old in 1869, and he first appears in the London City directory in 1886. John arrived by boat at Belleville, ON with two brothers. Hansen Gale left for the USA, probably to Syracuse NY, but all contact was lost. William Gale went to ND USA to farm but was driven out by dust storms and went north to Holbein SK in Canada where he became an early settler. John went on to London, ON where he was employed by the Asylum for the Insane (later renamed the Ontario Psychiatric Hospital) as a farm laborer, also assisting in supervising and training of patients who helped produce much of the food that they used. John was hired by the hospital on Feb. 1, 1883 at a salary of $18 per month. On Jan. 1 1908 he was promoted to assistant farmer, and was still an employee in 1923 when the old employee register was replaced. John started as a boarder with a Mrs. Mary Lang at 928 Dufferin Ave. in the east end of London, and later married her daughter. He is listed as a boarder in the 1886 London City directory. In 1887 he is listed as the owner of 928 Dufferin. After the arrival of their first child on November 25, 1887, John and Mary Ann sold the house on Dufferin to Thomas Fuller and bought a property just north of the hospital farm in the 2nd concession lot 8, where they are listed in directories and censuses from 1887 on. The rest of the children were born there. This property is now occupied by the North London Optimists Community Centre. The whole family, including his mother-in-law Mary Lang, but excluding Cicely who had gone to work as a servant for a neighbor, are listed there in the 1901 census. John is enumerated a second time at his job as ploughman for the Insane Asylum. They belonged to the Church of England. John retired and stayed on the property with his wife and daughter Gladys. When William's wife was totally incapacitated in 1921, they were joined by William's two sons. After John's death Gladys sold the property and retired to London.

He married Anna Maria Lang on 4 October 1884 at London East, Middlesex, ON, CA. 10The marriage was performed by G.W. Henderson and witnessed by Mary Cox (the sister of the bride) and David Rogers (Mary's future husband).

Anna Maria Lang was the daughter of Francis Lang and Mary Lang. She was also known as Mary Ann. She was born on 30 March 1853 at St Stephens-By-Saltash, Cornwall, England. 1,2,3,11,12,13 She immigrated in 1872 in Canada. 3 She lived St. Germans Union Poorhouse in 1861 at Cornwall, England. 14 She lived in 1891 at London East, Middlesex, ON, CA. 15 She worked as a Kitchen Maid in 1871 at Trethill House, Sheviock, St. Germans, Cornwall, England. 16 She worked as an Attendant from 1881 to 1882 at Ontario Psychiatric Hospital, London, ON, CA. 17 She died on 23 June 1931 cerebral Haemorrhage at lot 8 con 2, London, Middlesex, ON, CA. 4,5 The cause of death was cerebral Haemorrhage . She was buried on 24 June 1931 at Mt Pleasant Cemetery, London, ON, CA.
