"The Quarter Session books must have taken a long time and a great deal of cross-referencing. Your work, however, will be invaluable to historians and other researchers for many years to come. It’s very impressive." — David Warrick, Chair of the Macdonald Project of Prince Edward County, Ontario
"The Hard Road Ahead, 1851-1900"
– The Addington Colonization Road of Early Ontario
Starting in the mid 1850's, the Government decided to open up the more northern regions of Canada West by constructing roads leading to these areas, and offering free grants of 100 acres to anyone who would agree to live on and work the land adjacent to these roads. This publication outlines the story of one of these roads, the Addington Road, which began in Sheffield Twp. and was eventually completed to the northern boundary of Brudenell Twp. in Renfrew County. The story of the survey, construction and settlement of the road is told through transcribed documents in part one of the book, with the second part containing a history of the free grant lots along the road up to around 1900. Fully indexed, 620 pgs.

"Upper Canadian Justice, Volume 4, 1825-1829"
A continuation of our series of transcriptions of the proceedings of the Assize Court of Upper Canada; this volume has extensive endnotes, drawn from various sources including the Upper Canada Sundries and local newspapers. Included in this volume are the trials of Francis Collins for libel, the trials of those accused in the infamous "Types Riot" in the Town of York, and the trial of Charles French, apprentice of William Lyon Mackenzie, who was convicted of murder in 1828. During this period, a new Justice arrived from England, but soon ran afoul of Attorney General John Beverley Robinson and other members of the Family Compact, on account of his sympathy towards the "reformers". He was quickly replaced, and sent back to England within nine months, prompting the notion that "Upper Canadian Injustice" might be a better title for this volume!
"Penitentiary Patriots: Upper Canada Rebellion, 1838, James Nickalls Report" by Brian Latham & Linda Corupe, U.E.
This publication contains a transcription of the James Nickalls report of 1838, a fascinating document originally spotted by Brian in the Upper Canada Sundries. James Nickalls was President of the Board of Inspectors for the Provincial Penitentiary. His report contains the results of 18 interviews conducted with rebels who were sent to the penitentiary in Kingston for the parts they played in the Upper Canada Rebellion. These interview results contain not only details of the prisoners' activities during the conflict, but also many personal details which will be invaluable to genealogists.
In order to give a more complete picture of the role these men played in the rebellion, additional information has been added from various other sources. The book consists of 70 pages and is fully indexed.
The publication, with the exception of the cover photograph, is copyright free, and may be used without permission from the authors. An acknowledgement, however, would be appreciated.
