Adam Brand jr. Born C. 1686
Note:  Scotland’s Mini Ice-Age.
From around AD 1500 to 1700, Scotland was smitten by a mini Ice Age.  In 1684, eye witness reports were of bitter summers, failure of harvests, and the wholesale destruction of woods.  In 1709, the British seas off Scotland were frozen solid for some miles off shore, and the frost went ten feet into the ground.  The houses were cold, smoky, smelly, ill-lit and uncomfortable.  Scotland had no roads, or at least none that could take wheels except within a few bigger towns.  The tracks were so rough that horsemen could travel no faster than walkers on a long journey.  The surface of the lowlands was almost entirely destitute of trees and even of bushes, except a few around the landowners’ houses.  There were no hedges and fences; all fields lay open, and since the people had not learned how to drain the land, it was covered with lakes, marshes and ponds.  The country people of the east and central Lowlands, Southern Uplands, and Borders, had stone houses roofed in thatch or turf, but without chimneys.  The windows were only holes in the walls, stopped in storm with a straw bung or a cloth roll.  In the Highlands, few stone houses could be seen apart from the clan chiefs’.  Thus, Highlanders and Lowlanders alike suffered great temptation to hibernate in winter, and to ‘redden their legs by the fire’ as one traveler recorded.

Note 1:  Robert’s marriage date is uncertain, but his contract with Margaret was registered on June 19 and states, “Juny 19 – Rob Gatherum brought a loghificat of his contract with Margt Orack in the parish of Leuchars”.  Note that June appears to be pronounced “Juny” at that time.  Also that the spelling of loghificat is uncertain due to the handwriting, but the latter half of the word is definitely “ficat”, so it appears to be some sort of certificate.

Oct. 23, 1760).  The statement reads, “April 29th 1791.  Here contracted John Gatherame and Janet Morgan both in this Parish who after proclamation without objection were married May 3rd next thereafter.”  Note that Gatherum was often spelled the way it sounded (Gatherim, Gatherem, Gatherame)

(b. 1836.8.26), Robert Shand (b. 1838.6.10).  All born in Edinburgh.  Her parents were Richard Poole and Jane Caird.
Note 3:  The 1881 Census shows John and Sarah living with James Hunter (their 38 year old child) and with Mary Hood (domestic servant).  It also shows John as “Colliery Manager”.
Note 4:  John was described as a manager of a coal and iron coy and an underground manager in his will.  He was the coal master at Milesmark, where he died.
Note 5:  His son, James, died in a mine collapse in 1892 having been ordered by his father to go down the mine to inspect the damage caused by a previous collapse.  Apparently the miners argued that it was too dangerous for him to go down the mine, but as the engineer, he had no option but to obey his father’s orders.  He became trapped following a further fall in the mine.  He was rescued but died from his injuries soon after.  His grave is in Carnock.  The senior John Vicar Hunter is also buried there along with his grandson, John (Jack) McVicar Hunter.

John McVicar HUNTER (jr.) married Frances Ann NIXON in Edinburgh. Apr.3, 1869  Had oil, coal and clay business in Leith until the 1880’s.  Lived at 29 Spring Gardens and Hawthorn Terrace, Loanhead.  It’s possible that they were separated before 1888, but this is unverified.

Sept.4, 1880.  Sometime later they traveled to Montreal where the twins were born.  Lilly and Alex also traveled to Africa and, when they returned to Scotland in 1886, Alex was pushed into the coal industry by his father, John Vicar Hunter.  While in Montreal, Alex was a clerk, and in the 1891 Census, Alex was listed as a “Pit-head man, coal”.  Alex died of old age on May 6, 1918 at 3 Helen Street, Edinburgh.  He is buried at Rosebank Cemetry in Leith, Edinburgh.  No headstone, but the adjoining graves are for an Alexander Donaldson and family.  (Are these his graves or could they be those of his cousin’s?)
1. William (Willy);  b. Oct.10, 1881 Montreal (twin brother of Henry)
2. Henry (Harry) Dundas Hunter;  b. Oct.10, 1881 Montreal (twin)  d. Sep.13, 1962 Vancouver, Canada.  m. Violet Richardson WILLIAMS on July 4, 1910.

5. Walter Frayne Hunter;  b. Apr.24, 1889 Carnock
6. Margaret Frayne Hunter; b. July 22, 1891 Carnock
Note:  Alexander spent many years in Africa as a purchaser of palm oil, a very important item in those days in the production of soap.  He worked for a manufacturer in Edinburgh.  He had, unfortunately, developed some health problems which were thought to be related to his time spent in Africa.  Shortly after he was married, the company for whom he worked, granted a sick leave for him and arranged for him to visit Canada with the hope that a change of climate would improve his health.  Lillias was not pleased about leaving Scotland, but finally agreed to go with the clear understanding that the stay in Canada did not exceed one year.  They sailed for Montreal and story has it that Lillias never left the house that they occupied in that city.  In October of 1881, Henry (Harry) Dundas Hunter and his twin William were born.  While they were infants, the “one year” agreement was up, so they all returned to Scotland.  Alexander gave up his job as a buyer and accepted a position of mine manager with a coal mining company near Perth.  Rumor has it that he died in Africa sometime between 1905 and 1914, but other information states that he died in Edinburgh on May 6, 1918.

James WILLIAMS (shopkeeper) married Anne KERR in 1880, Edinburgh.  James was born in 1854, Edinburgh and died of a heart attack at age 42 in 1896, Edinburgh.  Anne was born into a well to do family in Edinburgh in 1860 and was the only child.  She died in 1950, Edinburgh.   Note: After James died, Anne never remarried.  Story has it that she then went through a sizable fortune through living well and neglect of the property that had been left to her.
Violet Richardson Williams;  b. July 1, 1886 Edinburgh  d. May 24, 1962 Vancouver, Canada.

Henry (Harry) Dundas HUNTER married Violet Richardson WILLIAMS in Thornhill, Perthshire (about 50 km from Carnock), Scotland. July 4, 1910.  They emigrated to Canada in 1913.  Violet died of a heart attack in Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada on May 24, 1962.  Harry died four months later on September 13, 1962.  Their son, Jim, said that Harry was circumspect and serious, while Violet was chummy, animated, optimistic and forthright.
1. Anne Williams (Nan) Hunter;  b. C. 1909 Scotland.   d. Aug.14, 1935 Winnipeg.  Complications from teeth surgery.
2. John Williams (Jack) Hunter;  b. July 12, 1912 Scotland.  m. Doris MOORE. Children: Jack and Robert (Bob)
3. Henry Colin (Harry Douglas) Hunter;  b. Aug.16, 1915 Winnipeg;  d. Feb.28, 2001 Vancouver.  Married Thelma Irene Hodgson (pronounced Hodson) in Jamaica on Oct. 2, 1940.  Children:  H. Douglas (Doug), David George and Beverley Ann (Bev).
4. James Williams (Jim) Hunter;   b. Apr.24, 1921 in the family home on Furby Street,  Winnipeg.  Worked in textiles – sales.  d. Feb. 14, 2013 North Vancouver.  Married Roxie Elise SIDDALL in Winnipeg on April 24, 1943.  Roxy was born in Medicine Hat in 1922 and died in North Vancouver on Sep.3, 2005.  Her parents were Olga Lillian CLEE (b. 1892.12.20 Russell, Manitoba) and Victor William George SIDDALL.  They married in Russell, Manitoba on February 12, 1921.  (George’s mother: Alice Louise Siddall and father: John William Henry Siddall).  Jim and Roxy’s children: Ken, Ron (m. Dianne), Gordon, Glen and Victoria (Vickie) (twins).
5. Lillias McPherson (Bunty);  b. July 20, 1924.  d. April 18, 2016 in Delta, British Columbia.  m. Jack BROWN   Children: Carol, Joan and Cathy.
Note:  After emigrating to Canada in 1913, Henry (Harry) accepted a short term contract with the Grand Trunk Railway in British Columbia as Paymaster and Surveyor.  When World War 1 broke out, he returned to Winnipeg and enlisted with the Canadian Engineers.  But because of his accounting experience, he was transferred to the Paymaster’s Office and was quickly sent overseas.  When he returned to Canada in 1920, he returned to Winnipeg where he became the Secretary Treasurer of the fast growing Municipality of St. James, on the west side of Winnipeg.  He remained there until 1927.  In 1927, he joined a company that did contract work for the province of Manitoba in property tax assessment.  When the Depression hit in 1928, he was hired to do the assessment for a large area in the Lake Manitoba area, known as St. Laurent.  His responsibility grew to include “Sheriff” for that part of the province, where he lived year round.  His family, however, continued to live in Winnipeg.  It appears that a combination of melancholy and despair for his future overtook him in the winter of 1928, for he decided to flee Manitoba.  When Violet couldn’t contact her husband, she made inquiries through the RCMP (police).  Their investigation concluded that he had left his home with the door open and the lights on and had been absent many days.  His model A Ford was gone and was never recovered.  Two months later, he was found by the Montreal police.  He had been taken to a hospital in a state of near starvation after collapsing in the street.  He had no recollection of leaving St. Laurent and was apparently trying to find his way back to Scotland.

James WINSER married Joan (unknown) in England in C. 1660.  Their estate was called “Lemonford in Ashburton” and was still in existence as a farm in the 19th Century.  James was born C. 1635 Denbury, Devon, England and died March 21, 1703.

Note 1:  Anthony Winser’s 1813 WILL states:  “In the name of God, Amen.  I, Anthony Winsor of the Parish of Denbury in the county of Devon, Cordwainer, being of sound mind . . etc. . .   I give and bequeath JACOB WINSOR now in French Prison the sum of 10 pounds.  If he does return to receive it during his life, the above sum to be paid to his father, PETER WINSOR.  If neither of them receive the above 10  pounds to be paid to HENRY WINSOR, Grandson of the above named PETER WINSOR and SARAH SYMONS. . . .”  (Henry is the first child of PETER WINSER and SARAH PAYNE and was 8 years old at the time.  He was born before the abduction of his father and uncle by the French.  This is why there is a large gap between Henry and his next sibling, Elizabeth Sarah WINSOR, born Feb. 21,1815.)  (Note:  In Anthony’s Will, he spells Peter as Petter, which is Nordic spelling.)
Note 2:  Anthony’s gravestone reads:  “Sacred to the memory of Anthony Winʃer (Winser) who was clerk of this parish 49 years who departed this life the 16th of July, 1814 Aged 85 years.  Also Sarah, wife of Weatherdon, and grand-daghter of the above who died November 1850 aged 43 years.  Also Henry M Weatherdon, son of William and Sarah Weatherdon.”  Also, “In memory of Suʃanna (Susanna) the wife of Anthony Winʃer (Winser) who died ye 26th of November 1785 Aged 55”.
Note 3:  The WINSOR spelling varies, even within the same family.  Early spelling was usually WINSER, but this branch of the family eventually adopted WINSOR.  The reason for the discrepancy is unknown.  Perhaps clerks, ministers and others spelled it the way it sounded.  Also, in Anthony WINSOR’s will, all spellings are WINSOR.

Note 2:  In the past, words like bleʃs and aʃsigns are used.  They look like an “f” but they are not.  In older English they are known as a “long s”.  So the words are actually “bless” and “assigns”.  Also, “Winʃer” is actually “Winser”.

Matthew SYMONS married Sarah WRAYFORD in Denbury on Feb. 5, 1756.  Matthew was born in the year 1730 and died in Denbury, Devonshire on Dec. 29, 1814.  Sarah was born in the year 1730 and died in Denbury, Devonshire on August 8, 1786 age 56.  Matthew’s father was Matthew SYMONS Sr.

Note 2:  Peter Ford Winser and his brother Jacob were well acquainted with Newfoundland because they had fished a number of times on the Grand Banks with their father.  In 1810, the two brothers were captured off the Coast of Newfoundland by Napoleon’s men and imprisoned in Arras, France.  When Napoleon was defeated, the brothers returned home and eventually emigrated to Newfoundland.

Peter Ford WINSER married Sarah PAYNE in St. John’s Newfoundland on Dec. 5, 1801.  Peter was a Mariner, Merchant, Ship Builder and Politician.  Sarah was born in Denbury, England on Nov. 5, 1787 and died in Aquaforte, Newfoundland on Feb. 15, 1872.  He was 20 and she was 13 years old when they married and was during the Napoleonic Wars.

Note 1:  Napoleon’s Berlin Decree of November 21, 1806 allowed French forces to seize vessels and merchandise and imprison English citizens.   In 1810 and during a return trip from Caplin Bay, Newfoundland, Peter’s fishing boat was captured off the coast of Newfoundland by the French navy and he spent some years imprisoned at Arras, France, along with his brother, Jacob.  This accounts for the gap between his first two children.  Theory:  Jacob and Peter were taken together because Jacob was in a French prison in 1813 (Mentioned in Anthony’s Winsor’s Will of 1813.
Note 2:  In around 1817 or 1818, Peter, his crew and their families arrived in Aquaforte and lived aboard ship until their houses were built.  As pioneer settlers, they brought out with them seeds, fruit trees and supplies.  They farmed to the extent it was required to survive.  They kept sheep, goats, cattle and horses.  They had blacksmiths, carpenters and everybody was a Hatchet and Saw man.  Peter and Sarah PAYNE’s first three children were born in England and the rest were born in Newfoundland after their emigration.

Note 3:  Peter Winser Sr. obituary from ‘The Patriot’, St. John’s 25 Oct. 1864 reads, in part:  “Died at Aquaforte, on Tuesday the 11th instant, Peter Winsor Esquire aged 83.  The lamented deceased was for many years engaged in the staple business of the country and by strict honour and probity in all his transactions gained the respect and esteem of all with whom he had connections and transactions.  He sat in the House of Assembly for many years as representative of the District of Ferryland and during the whole period was a most strenuous advocate of the rights of the people and the progress of the colony. . . . Appointed Stipendiary Magistrate for the District. . . .”

Jacob WINSOR married Anna JENNINGS in Dartmouth, Devon, England on Feb. 15, 1816.  Jacob was a mariner, teacher, labourer and dairyman.  He was well educated.  Anna Jennings was born in 1796 in Dartmouth, England and died in Aquaforte, Newfoundland on May 10, 1876.

Note 1:  In the will of Anthony Winser, Great Uncle of Jacob, written on January 27, 1813, it tells us that “Jacob is in a French prison”.  This would put him in a French prison at the same time as his brother Peter, who was abducted from his fishing boat by Napoleon’s men in 1810 and taken to Arras, France and imprisoned.  He and his brother remained imprisoned from 1810 – 1814.
Note 2:  It appears that Jacob’s family emigrated to Newfoundland with his brother Peter’s family (and others) in 1817 or 1818.  That story is in Peter’s biography.

7. Grindell;  b. 1842 Bempton.  d. May 10, 1882 Bempton.
Note 1: Records show that the first child, Matthew, was born before this marriage.
Note 2: The IGI (International Genealogical Index) in LDS (Latter-Day Saints) Family History Library, Micro Film # 1702872 shows Eleanor buried Sept. 15, 1834, age 33.  If this is so, the last child is not theirs.
Note 3: There are numerous spellings for Grindale/Grindell/Grindel.  I suspect that it is because not everyone was literate at the time.  Clerks, ministers and others would probably spell it the way it sounded and official documents would be signed with an “X”.  Both Grindale and Eleanor signed their Marriage Certificate with an “X”, which was witnessed by John Banks.  Only two children from Grindale and Ellin came to North America.  They were William and Matthew.
