Notes for Bernard Gillesby
Bernard Gillesby and Agnes Longmire Hutchinson came from Hamilton, Ontario to Sydenham Township in 1865 and bought 200 acres (Lot 15, Concession 6) from James Newman. It was sold, or part of it at least, to Thomas and Jessie Hutchinson in 1868.

The Gillesbys had come from England to Hamilton, Ontario in the mid-1830s. Bernard's father Thomas was supposedly the first saloon/hotel owner in Hamilton.
