The Loyalist Directory lists several people with the surname HOUSE, several
of whom are of the Hermanus HOUSE family. One of these is Joseph HOUSE, who
is shown as "suspended". We believe that this Joseph HOUSE had a younger
brother, George HOUSE, born 28 June 1773 in Montgomery County, N.Y. George HOUSE was
granted lands next to Hermanus HOUSE in Clinton Township, Upper Canada.
George HOUSE married at least three times to (1) ????, unknown, (2) 1813, Mary Ann
FRENCH, and (3) ????, Fanny (nee unknown). George HOUSE and Mary Ann FRENCH, we
believe, had a son, David W. HOUSE, married c. 1847, unknown place, Hannah E.
(Elizabeth) (nee unknown). [Note that The District Marriage Registers of Upper Canada,
Talbot District 1837-1857, Provincial Archives of Ontario, Toronto list, Hannah Eliza SMITH,
Townsend, Norfolk County, Ontario as being married in 1847.] Alternatively, David W.
HOUSE might have been a son of Andrew HOUSE, the oldest son of George HOUSE by his first
marriage to an unknown spouse.
David W. HOUSE and Hannah Elizabeth (nee unknown) are found in the 1851
Census for Windham Township, Norfolk County, Upper Canada with their two
children, as follows: (1) Theresa HOUSE, born 05 OCT 1847, Grimsby, Lincoln
County, Upper Canada, married John ROWE died 12 Oct 1939, Brantford, Brant
County, Ontario, Canada, buried Greenwood, Brantford, Brant County, Ontario,
Canada; and (2) Eliza Lija L. HOUSE, born c. 1851, North Grimsby, Lincoln
County, Upper Canada. In that 1851 Census, the family is living with Nancy Matida
HOUSE who is married to William MARLATT. Nancy Matida HOUSE is the presumed
sister of David W. HOUSE. Also living with them is Mary J. DOHERTY, a presumed niece
of Nancy Matilda HOUSE, married 1872, Erin Township, Nicholas ROGERS.
A third child of David W. HOUSE and Hannah Elizabeth (nee unknown) was born
later in Waterford. Elizabeth J(ulia?) HOUSE, born 15 Apr 1857, Waterford,
Townsend Township, Norfolk County, Ontario, Canada, married 04 Jul 1877,
Brantford, Brant County, Ontario, Canada, Abraham Abram Abrahm WEAKLEY
WEEKLEY, died 20 May 1928, St. Catharines, Grantham Township., Lincoln
County, Ontario, CANADA, buried, Mt. Hope, Brantford, Brant County, Ontario,
Hannah Elizabeth (nee unknown) married (1) David W. House (1847), (2) Michael M. Moses (1863), and (3) Theodore Sharp (1865).
We are seeking names of the parents of David W. HOUSE and Hannah Elizabeth
(nee unknown). Any additional information would be much appreciated.
