JAMES name_game@ca.on.ogs.families 1997-02 published
HYDE- HOLMES : LYNDE : (response)
The name of the father of Catherine HYDE (HOLMES) LYNDE
is apparently established by a will found in the records of the Home District
Surrogate Court.
O'CALLAGHAN HYDE HOLMES of Whitby Township, gentleman, died 29 July 1834,
leaving a will which mentions his wife Isabella, eldest son Thomas HOLMES,
2nd son O'CALLAGHAN HOLMES, and daughters Catherine and Isabella.
A provision in the will shows that he was about to set out on a visit
to his estate at Derygreag, Co. Cork Ireland, but it seems he got no
further than Quebec City, as the probate papers say he died there,
just over a month after writing his will.
His marriage is found in the small collection of marriage records kept by
the Clerk of the Peace for the Home District, known as the
Stephen Heward Register :
O'CALLAGHAN HYDE HOLMES and wife Isaella YOUNG, both of Whitby,
married 2 Aug 1829, in Whitby, by John B. Warren Esq., J.P.,
witnesses: : L. HEYDEN and John DEWAR.
This marriage (with a minor variation in the date)
is also referred to in what is surely the most unusual entry to be found
in the Home District Marriage Register, which reads as follows :
"l Isabella HOLMES do solemnly swear that l did publicly intermarry with
O'CALLAGHAN HYDE HOLMES at Whitby on the twentieth day of June in the
year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and twenty nine and that
there is now living issue of the said marriage Thomas HOLMES born on the
8th day of July 1830,
Isabella HOLMES born on the 29th day of March in the year 1832 and
O'CALLAGHAN HOLMES born on the 28 day of April 1834
and that such marriage was solmenized (sic) by John B. WARREN Esquire
of the Township of Whitby in the Home District."
(signed) Isabella HOLMES, sworn before me at Whitby this 31 day of
January 1835 (signed) Jno B. WARREN J.P.,
received filed and registered this second day of February 1835
(signed) S. WASHBURN Clerk H. District.
From the above, it would appear that Isabella YOUNG was the mother of 3
of the 4 children of O'CALLAGHAN HYDE HOLMES, but not his daughter Catherine.
Just who the mother of Catherine was is uncertain,
but the very fact that Isabella deemed it wise to have a record of her
family entered in the official records seems to indicate that some unusual
circumstances surrounded this family.
Isabella {YOUNG} HOLMES regained her maiden name on 1 Jan 1839
by marrying one James YOUNG (a relative?).
JAMES and wife Isaella YOUNG, her 3 HOLMES children and 4 more YOUNG children
are found in the 1852 census of Whitby.
Isabella YOUNG died 23 Feb 1866 aged 56, and is buried in
Union Cemetery Oshawa, as is Catherine HYDE- HOLMES- LYNDE (c1829-1889),
the subject of the query.

JESTIN name_game@ca.on.ogs.families 1997-02 published
GRIEVE : (response)
There are gravestones for two contemporary men named JOHN GRIEVE to be found
in Eramosa Township cemeteries. ln Eden Mills Cemetery is JOHN GRIEVE (1823-1904)
with wife Hellen MURRAY, and in the Eramosa Union Cemetery are gravestones
for the family of John GRIEVE (1821-1904) from the parish of Cavers,
Roxburghshire Scotland.
This family is documented in the Wellington County Atlas.
There appear to be no gravestones for the John GRIEVE with wife Margaret,
but there is a marriage record which furnishes the maiden name of Margaret :
Wellington County Marriage Register vol.1 p.175
John GRIEVE, 20, of Eramosa, born Eramosa,
son of John and wife Margaret {ARMSTRONG} GRIEVE
to Agnes JESTIN, 25, of Eramosa, born Eramosa,
dtr of MARTIN and wife Margt {HILL} JESTIN married 29 October 1866 by Reverend John HOGG
of St. Andrew's Church, Guelph, witness William JESTIN
Another marriage record for a child of John and wife Margaret shows that
Margaret (Jr) married Richard WEBB of Eramosa 7 June 1867.
Another marriage from the Halton Co register, has daughter Helen marrying
David SHULTER of Eramosa 16 June 1863.
File family 1469 from records of the Wellington Co Surrogate Court is that of a
John GRIEVE of Eramosa, dated 1879 .. examination of this file might prove
it to be that of the man mentioned in the query.
