Hinweis zur Person


Tod Ursache: drowned at the Chats Falls near Hull QB
He left England for Canada in 1816
He likely drowned at Chats Falls, which is a dangerous set of falls in the Ottawa River. In 1819 John Snow acquired land at lot 18, Range 5 , possibly in Eardley Township, From the book “Pioneers of the Upper Ottawa”, by Anson A. Gard, 1906.
Source: "Hurling Down the Pine" by Courtney C. J. Bond, 1964 which speaks about the recruitment on pg. 11 & 12 - supplied by Karen Prytula of Kanata, ON, CA:
"In 1816 new found wealth had led Ruggles Wright to forsake the snows and cold of the Ottawa and cross the Atlantic....He signed on a group of Englishmen, some with their wives, as indentured workers (and bought some cattle).
In the spring a pair of purebred Hereford cows were soon plodding the muddy English roads, followed by their calves and a footsore bull, driven by a young herdsman. Down from Hereford, through Oxford to the outskirts of London they went. Here the boy left the beasts and went into the city by hackney to discover where Ruggles' ship was berthed before attempting the journey through the streets. (I don't think the author means that Ruggle's owned the ship, merely that it was the ship Ruggles was taking back to Canada, because I can't find a record of Ruggles owning a ship).
Moving down the English roads at the same time were some thirty-five young men, with adventure brightening their eyes, and imagination playing with ideas of what Hull and the Chaudiere might be like. (The Chaudiere is a dangerous waterfall in the Ottawa River right between the cities of Hull and Ottawa. The men were going to have to float logs around these falls) (I would like to get the names of these 35 men, somehow as well)
Among these was at least one whose name would be remembered: John SNOW, a twenty-three year old wheelwright. SNOW worked for a few years for Wright, and then drowned at the Chats Falls leaving a son John Allen, who became a Provincial Land Surveyor and went to the North-west in 1869 to build a road for the Canadian Government.
