THE PIONEERS OF NORTH BAYHAM
The northern part of the Township of Bayham was settled between the years 1819 and 1824. The names of those who became permanent settlers are as follows: Andrew and George Dobbie, James, John and William Crossett, Daniel and Finley Malcolm, Joshua Brown, Seled Haley, James Bently, Geo. Best and Samuel Livingston, with his two sons, John and Samuel, then boys of 12 and 14. A few years later came Joseph Crossett and Chauncey Smith.
A school house was built as early as 1823, half way between the 10th and 11th concession lines on the bank of a deep gully. The children were guided to school by two blazed paths, one from the north, the other from the south. The house was built of logs, roofed with shingles about seven or eight inches wide, and between two and three feet long, split out of blocks, but not shaved. The flooring was made in the same way, only the boards or slabs as they were called were longer and wider than the shingles. Good timber was plentiful. The school room was lighted by one or two small windows. The chimney was built of sticks plastered inside with clay. The hearth was made of clay, worked and packed together so closely that when dry it was quite smoothe, and answered the purpose admirably. The first teacher in this house was Mr. Wm. Crossett, who with his venerable mother was among the first settlers. The old lady was a native of England. She used to tell us with some pride that she remembered old Father Wesley laying his hand on her head when she was a child. Mr. Crossett’s successors in the school were Mr. Hugh Mulholland and Messrs. Corols and Augustus Hewett. In January 1833 or ‘34 a new school was built on the Forge Road, near where the road crosses the gully upon which the first house stood. This house although built of logs, was a great improvement on the first. The windows were larger and more numerous; the chimney and hearth were brick, the roof was covered with modern shingles, the floor and desks were made of sawed lumber; the seats were basewood logs, with the bark taken off, flattened on one side to the desired width, and in each end of the other side were bored two large holes into which strong stiches were driven, constituting the supports of the benches. The teachers’ desk was a crosslegged table. The first teacher in this house was Mr. Isaac Tillson, cousin to E.D. Tillson, Esq. of Tilsonburg. Mr. T’s successors were Miss Dewey and Mr. William Goodrich, who afterwards became husband and wife, and some of whose descendants still live in the township. Other teachers were Miss Margaret Livingstone, daughter of Samuel Livingston, Sr; then Messrs. Mulholland, Holst Hewett, Ketcherbaw, Boyd and J.W. Kerr, who having been educated in Dublin, was a very excellent teacher. About the year 1813 a frame school house was built on the site of the present brick building, The teachers in this house were E.D. Tilson a graduate of Oberlin College. Misses Sarah J. and Mary A. Livingstone, and later Abegail Bentley, daughter of James Bentley. This house was burned and replaced by one on the opposite side of the road, which was finally superceeded by the present commodious building. The subjects taught in those early days were few, but those few were generally thoroughly
taught, the diligent scolar having a foundation laid, which supplemented by home study, made good scholars. The writer remembers one young man who left school about the year 1836, and never attended a higher school, who became a civil engineer, and spent many years overseeing the grading of streets in Grand Rapids to the entire satisfaction of the city fathers. Our principal reading book in the early days was the “English Reader” compiled by the grammarian; Lindley Murry. This book was composed of extracts from the works of the best English authors, viz: Milton, Pope, Addison, Cowper, Goldsmith, Thompson, Blair, Dr. Johnson, etc. No one could be familiar with the above authors without being elevated both morally and intellectually. Grammar and geography were introduced into the school in 1935 by Mr. Goodrich, and it is not saying too much to assert that the grammar classes of Messrs. Kerr and Tillson would compare favorably with those in the same study in our modern schools. During Mr. Tillson’s term the Irish National series of reading books were introduced, to the great advantage of the pupils. The fifth book in the Toronto Normal School for several years after its establishment. Before any Board of Education was established, we had township superintendants, whose duty it was to examine teachers and grant certificates. This office was held for a number of years by Mr. William Veitch of Richmond, and afterwards by the Rev. F.B. Reid, a church of England clergyman, of Port Burwell. While the education of the people was looked after, their spiritual interests were not forgotten. The Baptist ministers were early brought into the settlement: by Mr. William Crossett, who was subsequently ordained an elder, and for many years without fee or reward kept up the Sabbath services. The Methodist ministers followed in the track of the settlers, but owing to the great extent of the circut which extended from Waterford on the east, to St. Thomas on the west, they could only hold service in Bayham on week evenings in winter and afternoons in summer. The word of God was precious in those days. The writer has known young men to leave the hay field to attend the afternoon meetings. Sunday schools were early established the principal exercises were reading and reciting versus from the scriptures and the Assembly’s catechisem, which some of the pioneers had brought with them from their home across the sea. It was not uncommon for a pupil to commit to memory 1,000 verses in one summer. The recreations of the young people though few were both ammusing and instructive being chiefly in the winter evenings, singing schools and spelling schools. The contests in the latter were often quite exciting, the victors being as proud as the winners in the ancient games. The forests were plentifully stocked with the birds and the beasts, most of the men owned rifles, and venison was easily procured. The howling of wolves was a nightly occurence, and often a wolf or bear would call around in the day time and carry off a sheep or a pig. Indians were frequently entertained, but were always friendly. The houses of the people were built of logs, the chimneys of sticks, and the fireplaces of stones. Above the fireplace a pole was placed across the chimney called a log pole, and from it was suspended another pole called a tromel, with a hook on each end, the upper hook to go over the log pole, the lower one to hang a pot on for cooking. Sometimes the log pole would fall off and precipitate the whole machinery into the fire. One man made the window sash for his house, his only tool being a jack knife. Whatever tools were possessed in the neighbourhood were free to all. A nobler company of men and women then the pioneers of North Bayham it would be hard to find – brave, patient, honest, kind. They were people to be relied on. Every man’s word was his bond, every woman’s time was at the disposal of her neighbours if necessary. It was no uncommon thing for a woman to ride on horseback several miles over roads that would now be considered impassable and through woods infested with wild beasts, to visit the sick, or to perform the last kind offices for the dead. Of the above mentioned pioneers only two survive at the present time, Mr. George Best, at the age of 94, occupies his old homestead cared for by his only son George William, and Capt. Samuel Livingstone, who in the 86th year of his age, lives on the farm which he hewed out of the woods, his last days and those of his wife being made comfortable by the care of his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Baker. John Livingstone who once owned the south half of the same lot, sold his property many years ago, and ended his days in Michigan. He had the honor of building the first frame house in North Bayham. Mr. Andrew Dobbie was our first magestrate, his only son T.W. Dobbie, who now resides in Tilsonburg, represented East Elgin in the first Dominion Parliament Mr. George Dobbie’s youngest son Charles owns his father’s homestead, his two sisters, Mrs. Best and Mrs. Elliott, reside in the neighbourhood. Some of the Crossett’s still own lands inherited from their forefathers. Charles Bentley still owns the Bentley homestead. The representatives of the other families have passed beyond the writer’s knowledge. The old fathers and mothers rest from their labors in the North Bayham cemetery, which is situated near where the G. T. R. crosses the 11th concession. The cemetery is bounded on the south by the primeval forest and a few old trees still stand on the east like sentries, keeping guard over the silent sleepers, whose deeds are written on the lands by which they are surrounded. They were lovely and pleasant in their lives and in their death they are not divided. May their descendants forget their faults and imitate their virtues.
Oh, dear departed weary ones!
One ancient honored dead
May reverence guard your holy bones, And love your lowly bed.
For us ‘tis all that we can do
Upon the mounds that speak of you
The greatful tear to shed;
Keep green the memory and the grave, And guard the heritage ye gave.
Mary A. Bothwell

WHO WAS WILLIAM GARVEN ? ? ?
On May 6th 1985 a metal cross was found by Ross Rezar, in one of the water sheds that feeds Kettle Creek, at the back of his property. Part of lots 1 & 2 on the 9th Concession of the Yarmouth Township. The cross was lying face down in the bottom of the creek and he almost passed it by. Ross and his wife Janice cleaned the cross up and discovered it had the name of WILLIAM GARVEN engraved on it along with the following information, who died on June 24 ‘83 (1883) age 68 years.
Janice a member of the Elgin County Branch of the OGS called a few of the other members and they suggested she call Donald Cosens, a local historian to see if he knew anything about this kind of a cross or had any information on the name Garven. He was not able to help.
A search of local newspapers was out because the 1883 papers were not recorded on micro film.
The 1831 census for Yarmouth Township was checked and a family of Garvin’s was listed, William Garvin, age 65, born – Ireland, religion – Catholic, laborer, married. Sarah Garvin, age 70, born – Ireland, religion – Catholic. William, age 25, born – Ontario, religion – Catholic, laborer and Edward, age 20, born – Ontario, religion – Catholic. Other families listed in the area were Heard, Freeman and Patterson.
Those attending the May meeting of the Elgin County Branch of the OGS examined the cross with much interest but no one was able to add any information to help solve the mystery. How did the cross get in the creek? Was the cross taken from a coffin? Where was William Garven buried?
Do you have the answer to any of these questions or any information or suggestions that might help solve this mystery? If so, please drop us a line at this branch address.
