  • Notes 
    • John Holmwood came to the township of Flamborough from Brighton, Sussex, England. In his family there was John, who lived in Flamborough; George married Margaret Brander and lived near Winterbourne ; Henry kept a hotel in Dundas ; Walter, married Mary Ann Thompson ; Robert Penfold Holmwood, who married Elizabeth Millard; Leah married Robert Britton and after his death taught school in Winterbourne, about 1850; while Jane married Wm. Mann, who then owned the land that most of Winterbourne is on; and Emma was the wife of Thomas Crooks, of Crook's Hollow, in West Flamborough.

      When the Crooks estate put Capt. Smith off the farm, which had for so long been his home, it was Thomas Crooks who came to live on it. The Crooks Tract, as it was called, included all the land for some distance on either side of the river road from Capt. Smith's old home, which is now the Stroh farm, up to and including part of the Millard farm. The German Company's Tract is said to have taken in from what is now the north part of the Millard . farm to the town line between the townships of Woolwich and Pilkington.

      After Thomas Crooks had come to live in Capt. Smith's old home, his brother in law, Walter Holmwood, came to what was then Cox's Creek and started the first store, the site of which was half way up the hill, on the north side of the creek and on the west side of the road. Having opened this store, his brother, Robert P. Holmwood, came to clerk for him and remained in Winterbourne until his death. His son, Robert Penfold Holmwood, is now living in his father's home, and this is the house that Capt. Smith built after he had to leave his first one. As a specimen of a well-built log house it is well worth examining, while the historical incidents associated with it make it still more interesting. To many this house will be better known by explaining that it is the one which is close to Holmwood's cider mill.
