  • Notes 
    • A family gathering - anniversary of the birth of an early settler.

      It is not often in the present state of the world's history, that a father is privileged to see grow up and prosper around him children, grand-children and great-grand-children. However, such was the case with Mr. John Durrant of Winterbourne, who celebrated the 87th anniversary of his birth yesterday (Thursday), he passed the flight of time...Mr. Durrant came to this country in the year 1831, from Winterbourne, England and took up temporary abode at or near where Guelph now stands. He remained there but one year, and in 1832 removed to and settled on a farm within two and a half miles of Winterbourne, where he has remained until the present time, having cleared some six hundred acres of land. Though crippled with rheumatism, he still retains his ordinary faculties, and until within a year ago has always been exceedingly vigorous...
