  • Note:
    Of English ancestry, and Methodist faith. His father's year of immigration is given as 1852, yet John's entry on the 1901 census says that he immigrated in 1850. I'm more inclined to accept his father's recollection of the date than I am John's.

    John didn't settle in Medonte until after the 1891 census. In 1881 census, surname is misspelt: SHEFIELD.
