Descendants of Patrick Mullin

Generation No. 2


      2. Jervis2 Mullin (Patrick1) was born October 31, 1793 in Parish of Arboe, County of Antrim, Ireland, and died Unknown in Home of his son Jeremiah Mullin in Rochesterville (Ottawa). He married Elinor Hart Matilda Sproule Adams 1811, daughter of Samuel Adams and Jane Hart. She was born 1797 in Londonderry, Ireland, and died 1870 in the home of her daugher, Mrs. George Fairbairn.

Notes for Jervis Mullin:
The information provided here is directly from the genealogy book, Who's Which by Reby (Johnston) Dobbs. It is her words that are typed here. I was kindly loaned this book by a descendant and cousin, Bruce Mullen in the Spring of 2002.

Mullin derived from the French 'Moulin' a mill.

Of this family of eleven - the eldest child was born in Quebec City (the Citadel) - the second probably in Bytown. Seven children were born in Goulburn. Matilda & James after the family had settled in Wakefield township.


**JERVIS MULLIN**

Early in the Spring, 1812 , His Majesty's 100 Regt. of Foot embarked for Canada. There were tears in the eyes of many as the troops marched on board - they were leaving the land of their birth, perhaps to return no more. There were no tears in the eyes of Private Jervis Mullin, late of Arboe, County Antrim. Unknown to all but two or three conspirators - well disguised in a private's uniform, marched Private Mullin's sixteen-year-old-wife!

Jervis was born October 31, 1793, in the Parish of Arboe, County Antrim, Ireland, the son of a travelling weaver. Jervis was young when his mother died. His father married again, and Jervis was reared by his step-mother. His own mother, Margaret Sargent, had been a Protestant, but his step-mother was a devout Catholic. Jervis accompanied her to church and learned "by heart" the 'Lords Prayer' in the Gaelic. He retained his memory of this and was able late in life, to teach the prayer to his own grandson just as he himself had learned it, in Gaelic.

Jervis Mullin's father was not wealthy, and Jervis, when he had reached a suitable age, found employment as a house servant with one of the neighboring gentry. It was during the time of his employment with this gentleman's family that a mischievous prank proved to the 'turning point' of his career. One dark evening, he wrapped himself in a bed sheet and almost frightened his employer's young daughters out of their senses! Naturally, his services were no longer required. And so it happened, that July 8, 1811, found Jervis enrolled with the 100 Regt., and stationed in Londonderry.

Jervis' nephew, also eighteen years of age, enlisted int he same regiment.

**ELINOR ADAMS**

It was 1807. The place - a neat little dwelling on the ourskirts of Londonderry; a grassy yard - with trees, and their own well. It was mid-summer.

The road was dusty. The day was hot...But the heat had no effect on a group of little girls 'busily' occupied in the old time game of "The thread follows the needle". The children stood in a line with hands joined. The one at the end of the line- the needle, passing up the line and through space made by two children at the other end of the who stepped apart and raised their clasped hands high to form an arch, singing "The thread follows the needle - the thread follows the needle, and in and out the needle goes while mother mends the baby's clothes..." As Elinor turned a carriage stopped at the gate. Inside the carriage sat a lady, holding a baby. The driver was seated up in front. Getting down the man asked if he might get a drink of fresh water for the lady, and went to fetch it. Elinor asked if she might hold the baby...the horses started suddenly and the carriage wheels passed over her foot, crushing it badly.

This lady who was heart-broken over the accident...kept Elinor under her own doctor's care till her foot had healed and in compensation offered to have her educated with her own daughter, who was of the same age. This kind offer was accepted, and Elinor was given the advantages of a private tutoring. Years passed - 1811 came, and streets of Londonderry were filled with military music and raw recruits of the 100 Regiment...And Elinor Adams met Private Jervis Mullen...They met opposition, too, from her parents, The army gave no encouragement, but they married anyhow, and awaited sailing.

1812 **JERVIS MULLIN**

Weeks passed and the hour of embarkation grew near. Only a few of the officer's wives were permitted to accompany their husbands to Canada. An even lesser number of soldiers wives were allowed to go. Lots were drawn, and much dissapointment showed among the unlucky ones. Among those whose lot it was to remain at home was Elinor. Jervis and his pals planned to get her on board somehow. As she was a tall girl it was not difficult. Wearing a army uniform, her hair coiled high on her head under a shako, with the visor low over her eyes, she looked like any callow youth in Ireland. In their haste the young soldiers managed to drop Elinors small chest of boods and personal effects. After a few anxious moments the box was fished out. Beyond a few salt-water stains the contents were none the worse for their dip in the habor.

Elinor's presence on board was not discovered until the troopship had made several days journey. It is not on record what award was meted out to Jervis and his friends for their share in concealing the stowaway.

Elinor was very unhappy. She had to share the quarters of the other soldiers wives, and those quarters were far from roomy. She was deprived of the company of her young husband and wished she was back at home with her parents. She was unaccustomed to the hardships of army life. The wives of the other soldiers were all older and more experienced. The wife of one of the officers felt sorry for Elinor. She obtained permission to retain the young girl as personal help and companion, and to come home with her when they reached Quebec.

This kind offer was accepted gladly by Elinor. She remained with her newly found friend for the duration of the war, proving to be an intelligent and useful companion, able in many ways to repay the kindness of her benefactor.

During her stay in the Citadel in Quebec, Elinor became very ill, with a high temperature lasting several days. Recovery was slow. The doctor oredered her hair cut short. By a curious co-incidence the barber called in to do the job, proved to be the same barber who had coveted that glorious head of hair in Londonderry. He got the lovely tresses for nothing, and got paid for taking them. One curl she kept for many years. Like her portrait, painted on ivory, it no longer exists. When Elinor became old she burned both the portrait and the lock of hair in the kitchen fire. Her granddaughter. Mary Ann Fairbairn tried to save them, getting her hands burned in the attempt.

Jervis Mullin was in at least seven engagements in the Niagara District,; Queenston Heights October 13, 1812; The taking of Fort George April 12, 1813; The taking of Fort Niagara; The battle of Stoney Creek; Lundy's Land; Beaver Dam; and Chippewa. He was discharged at Quebec, when the Regiment was demobilized on September 24, 1818. Jervis had been transferred to the 99th Regiment toward the close fo the war. He had attained the rank of sergeant but reduced to corporal before his discharge. Jervis 'pal" sympathised with the Americans. He used to say "Mullin, I'll desart" He did desert, finally, and was found fighting on the American side. A courtmartial followed, and this soldier was condemned to be shot. It happened to be Jervis' lot to hold his Captain's horse, thus he witnessed the shooting...Jervis' nephew also went over to the Americans. He was not taken, and is said to have seen the termination of the war. He left descendants in the United States. Jervis wife Elinor helped a man to desert, once, probably Jervis' nephew. She burned his army uniform in the firepalce, but kept the buttons from his tunic. For many years afterward these reposed among others in her daughter, Ellen's button box. By now, I suppose they have gone the way of most old buttons.

Jervis was for some time stationed at Fort Wellington, Prescott.

1818

The long weary wartime days finally ended, Jervis, now transferred to the 99th Regiment, with the rank of sergeant, was stationed in Bytown (now Ottawa). The soldiers stationed here were employed in building the canal locks, working on the 'Rock Cut" near Wellington and Commissione commissioner Streets, and other Government projects, Elinor remained in Quebec City with little James, their eldest son, born 1816, until the regiment disbanded.

The government now had the problem of settling the different officers, non-commissioned officers and men, of the regiments that had been sent out from England to resist the invasion. The land set aside for the soldiers of the 99th and 100 Regiments lay in that section which is known now as Perth, Smiths Falls, Richmond, Goulburn, and the vicinity of Ottawa.

Those who accepted the Government's offer of land left Quebec on the 28 of July 1818 and landed at the foot of the Chaudiere Falls on Randalls' lot in the early part of August of the same year. This spot came to be known as Richmond Landing.

At the coming of these settlers there were only three house-holders at the 'Landing' - Captain Bellows had the dock and store. Isaac Frith kept a tavern. There was one settler, Ralph Smith. The "Flats" as they called the neighborhood around the Chaudiere, was a busy place. Several hundred women and children, wives and families of the Richmond settlers remained there for the rest of the summer, and suffered a little from both cold and hunger before their soldier husbands had completed the road through the bush and swamp, and finished building the log cabins, These usually consisted of one or two rooms with a one room garret above, which was reached by a ladder.

Sgt. Hill of the 99th regt. supervised the building of the road, as it was a government project. It followed the old Chaudiere portage trail, and with a few exceptions, the course of the present Richmond road. We, of the present day would not call it a road. The trees were cut, but in many cases the tree-stumps had been left standing. The carts and sleighs got aroung them the best way they could, but many of the settlers did not reach their newly built homes till winter, and there was much suffering from the cold. The second child, the eldest daughter of Elinor Mullin and Jervis was born late in the year, probably after they had set up housekeeping in Goulburn. As Elinor was among the last to leave Quebec City, it is possible she missed the hardships of the wait at Chaudiere. They named the new baby Margaret after Margaret Sargent, Jervis' mother.

Each soldier, other than the Officers and the non-commissioned officers was given one hundred acres of land. the soldiers were placed under the superintendence of Major Burke. Each man was to receive rations for one year and the usual farming implements and seed. Each family was entitled to 1 pick-axe; 1spade; 1 shovel; 1 hoe; 1 draw-knife; 1 hammer; 1 hand-saw; 2 scythe stones; 2 files; 12 panes of glass; 1 pound of putty; 12 pounds of hand-wrought nails in three sizes; 1 camp kettle; 1 bed and a blanket.

Jervis Mullin carried a number of these articles from Richmond, the place of distribution, through the woods for nine miles to his allotment of land in Goulburn. Some were strapped to his back; both hands were full and the camp kettle was on his head. He 'ran the gauntlet; of a whole army of mosquitoes, not cutting his way through them, but the reverse. They pierced their way through his delicate Irish skin as he waded across the long stretches of swampy ground. Bitterly complaining afterward of his face and hands so unprotected, the 'boys' in expressing their sympathy would have it that 'they bit him through the pot.' Winter set in, and Jervis commenced clearing the land in anticipation of next spring's planting.

The log or timbered house that Jervis built for Elinor measured about twenty by twenty-eight feet in size, which was considered quite roomy for a pioneer's cabin. This log home was unusual, in that the fire-place was built in the centre of the house, thus dividing the lower floor into two fair-sized rooms with shelves for delft and china in one room, and kitchen utensils in the other. Jervis built his own fireplace. He would boast that he could build a fireplace with a draft that would draw a handkerchief up the chimney, if one held the handkerchief at the far side of the room. They made an effort to keep the fire always burning. It was an ancient Irish custom. Then, too, it was not so easy to strike a light before the lucifer match came into common use which was after the 1820s.

The floor downstairs was made of logs carefully squared and smoothed with an axe. These floors were never painted, but kept scrubbed white. Elinor and Jervis' log house had a real staircase. This raised it above the level of the ordinary settler's cabin, as the majority were content with a ladder on which to mount to the loft above.

Before there was any local grist mill these pioneers made their sheat into flour by pounding the dried wheat kernels in a hardwood stump which had been smoothly hollowed out for this purpose. It was typical of Jervis that the stump he fixed for Elinor was the "best pounding stump in the neighborhood". The wives of many of the 'near by' settlers took every opportunity to come over and pound their wheat at Mullin's. Later there was a grist mill in Bytown, and one in Hull. The men would carry their wheat into Bytown to have it gourng each man would give a portion of his flour to the tavern-keeper toward the purchase of a 'bottle'. All but one - 'singing Murphy' they called him. He was exempt - he sang for his supper.

All their supplies had to be brought up the river from Montreal by boat or canoe and landed at the foot of the Chaudiere where a small wharf had been constructed. This little place, formerly called Bellows Landing, was now given the name Richmond Landing, for the Duke of Richmond. The supplies then had to be conveyed in oxcarts or wagons to the settlers' homes. Jervis Mullin found employment working for on the 'Rock Cut' in Bytown and received for his labor the sum of ninety cents per day. At the end of each week he would buy supplies in Bytown and carry them home to Goulburn. There was a trail through the woods, shorter than the surveryed road, and that was the way Jervis took.

1820

In the winter the men worked to clear the land of trees. Little James was now four years old. He liked to go out with his father and watch him bring the big trees down... Jervis was felling a large tree. It lodged for a moment in the branches of another tree, splintered, and crashed down in the opposite direction, killing James. There was no cemetery at that time. The child was buried near by in the clearing, Jervis and Elinor lived in Goulburn for fifteen years... They never ceased to mourn for James.

Several more children were born, Ellen, the third girl, had hair like her mothers (auburn) but Elizabeth's eyes and hair were dark. Once when the two little girls were playing by the well, Elizabeth toppled and fell in. She sank, and came up, her long black hair floating out on the water, Ellen reached out and grasped her by the hair and held on till help arrived...Saved...by a hair!


In Spring, 1836, they moved up the Gatineau, Jervis took the big iron camp kettle with him when they sold the farm. On the morning they left Elizabeth came, carrying a tiny pig. When asked what she expected to do with that - she said "put it under the pot".

1835

The new home by the Gatineau River was nearing completion by the time, Jervis Mullin was ready to move up with his family. jervis did much of the labor himself. the timbered house was well situated on a rise of land overlooking the river. On his first trip up, when land could be had for the choosing- pls a small amount per acre, he had gone twenty some miles, north from Hull. To the left and the right, behind and ahead the trees rose, tall stately, awaiting the axe of the settler. Jervis keen eyes caught a glimpse of something familiar some distance away to the left. "Ah! a church" he said, "Right here is where I am going to build." But it wasn't a church; just a high flat-fronted rock with a peak rising high above the trees, and bearing at a distance, some resemblance to the front of a church. Jervis cleared the land, and prepared to build.

The new house had many improvements, a living room was added, with a fire-place. The floor was of white basswood timber hewn in half and hand-smoothed. The rugs were made of sheep-skins, tanned and dyed. Into the home - fashioned bookcase went the books Elinor has brought with her from Irealnd, which, after seventeen years of handling were still in good condition. Later when the Currier & Ives framed prints were popular. Elinor proudly put them up on the walls.

There were few neighbors. They would exchange visits with Nicols who were among the first settlers. I have often heard that they were the first settlers in Masham. When the Johnstons came to Masham, the Mullins called to welcome them.

It all happened on the first day that Jervis' family spent in the new home by the Gatineau River. They had moved in the eveing before, unpacking only what was most needed, and all had a well-earned rest. One very important article had been left behind - the broom. Elinor, remembering that many of the settlers in Goulburn had made their own brooms, dispatched fifteen-year-old Jane to the woods near by to gather cedar broughs for the purpose. Eight-year-old Elllen went with her, and the two girls wandered about in the wood, searching for good branches. When they had gathered enough, and started for home, the girls found they had lost direction and become completely lost.

The Gatineau woods, in those days left nothing to the imagination. They tried one way, and then another. By this time several hours had passed. The girls were tired and not a little frightened. The sun rose high above the tall spruce trees, and looking up, Jane remembered what her father had told them the evening before - "If you ever get lost in those woods, walk toward the setting sun till you come to the river, then follow it home" The girls rested and after a little, commenced walking in the direction of the sun. They crawled over immense fallen cedar and spruce logs. They made their way throught dense underbrush; through ferns and briars. They fell over stones, and scratched their arms and legs on raspberry canes, and finally reached the river, just north of the rapids, and a mile from Wakefield.

William Fairbairn and his son George were finished the evening work on the west shore of the river, near their home. They heard the children calling and went to their aid, taking their canoe. The rays of the setting sun flooded the tops of the trees, standing majestic and sombre on either side of the wide stream; the water lapped along the canoein a confused murmer, as the kindly scottish neighbor took the tired children home to a very anxious family who had spent the greater part of the day looking for them. Thus ended the day when twelve-year-old George Fairbairn met his bride-to-be Ellen Mullin, for the first time.

This was in 1836.

On the 22nd March, 1849, Eleanor Mullin and George Fairbairn were married.

Jervis and Elinor's youngest daughter Matilde was born after they came to Wakefield township. A year later their youngest son was born. They named him James.

Margaret, the eldest daughter married Wills Evans of Los, and died less than two years later, leaving a son Charles, who was brought up by his grandparents, being near to the age of their own son, James.

This first generation of native-born Canadians had no fear of water. Living as they did, beside the river, it was the best means of transportation in those days. The girls were as much at home in the water as their brothers, and most of them could handle a boat or canoe.

Before the Gatineau River was raised by the Power Company, it was much lower than it is today. About a quarter of a mile above Wakefield, there began a stretch of rapis that challenged many of the best river-drivers of the day. Jane Mullin, fifteen years of age and Eleanor, nine, decided to try their strength against this turbulent and treacherous stretch of water. Needless to say, they told no one about the proposed trial - It was an amazing feat from the watcher's point of view, and the few people who witnessed the trial were much relieved to se Jane and her small sister emerge victoriously into the still waters at the foot ot the rapids.

(Eleanor Mullin was Reby (Johnston) Dodds grandmother.)

Jervis Mullin and Elinor (Adams) Mullin had eleven children in all, ten of whom lived to grow up and marry. the eldest, James was killed accidently at four years of age. Margaret married Wills Evans of Low, Quebec., a carpenter and millwright, and left a son Charles Evans whose wife was a Draper.

Jane married Walter Wilkie and went to live in Iowa, U.S.A. She died young, leaving one son and one daughter. Years later, her sister, Matilda advertised in the 'missing relatives' column of an Iowa newspaper. A reply came from Jane's daughter, who wrote that her mother had died when she, Jane Wilkie was a small girl.

Jervis' second son, Jeremiah became an herbist, and patented several remedies, some of which may be still in use. This interest was carried on by his youngest son, Samual Adams Mullen under the name of "The Mullen Medicine Company" Jeremiah Mullen was also something of an inventor, but his invention failed to bring him great riches. He was one of the first in the vicinity to become interested in photography, which was then in it's infancy. Had it not been for his interest in early photography, we would be without many of thel ikenesses of our pioneer ancestors. This versatile man was well-known throughout the Hull and Ottawa districts. He first married Mary Chamberlain, daughter of Edmond Chamberlain and Jane Edey, who came to Canada in 1806 with her brothers Moses and Samuel Edey of Randolph, Vermont. She died, leaving three sons. Jeremiah's second wife was Jane Younghusband, daughter of George Younghusband of South March, Ont. Of the second marriage there were two sons and two daughters.

This branch of the Mullen family spell their name with and 'e".

The third son, Samuel Adams Mullin lumberman and farmer of Wakefield township on lands acquired by Reg. Special Grant (north half of lots three and four in the sixth range).

In 1861 he married Margaret Hartin, daughter of David Hartin and Sally Malcolmson of Nepean and Goulburn, Ontario. His sons went into the lumber business with him. He was ever a cheerful soul. It is said of him, that during his last illness when he knew the end of life was almost reached he made a characteristic remark. Several neighbors had dropped in and were gathered round the bedside. His friend Charles Grey stood by with sober face. Relatives hovered about. Samuel Mullin looked around at the mournful company and chuckled. He looked at Charlie Gray - "Well" he said brightlly, "There's one thing sure, if I have to go, there's a few more of you won't be long behind me!" Samuel's son John lived on the homestead for about twelve years. When the youngest boy was still young he moved to the city. He handled deliveries for W.A. Rankin for many years.

Elinor (Nell) Mullin, the third daughter married George Fairbairn, miner, farmer, and lumberman. their first home a log or timbered house stood not far from the home of the present William Fairbairn Jr. Later George brought the old Miller place, and built the house that is the home of his grandson, William. Nell Fairbairn died at fifty-two of diptheria. Other stories of Jane and Nell as children are related in this book.
Patrick Mullin was born in Goulburn in 1830. Coming to Wakefield township with his parents in Spring, 1836, he lived the greater part of his life on the Fatineau. He married Jane Newcommon in 1849. Of all Jervis' Mullins son, Pat resembled his father most, except that Pat was the taller of the two. Cordial and pleasant in manner, he made many friends. For years he was caretaker for John Gilmour on his trout-fishing resort in Wakefield township. Once, during Pat's absence an enemy 'planted' voracious fish eggs among the trout. The result was disasterous for the trout. Pat knew nothing of this. Later, when the owner demanded angrily "WHO PUT THE FISH IN THE LAKE?" Pat stared at him for a minute - raised his eyes sky-ward and pointing up, replied gently, "The Lord Almighty."

Elizabeth Mullin the fourth daughtaer of Jervis Mullin was born 1832. She married George McDonald of East Templeton, Que. Elizabeth died at forty-six. She was the mother of eleven children. A daughter, Elizabeth married Sgt. Mjr. James Humphrey of the Ottawa City Police. A son was the later Frank MacDonald of Ottawa.

Mary Anne Mullin, who married Jospeh Hill, died young, leaving no family. Matilda Mullin the fifth and youngest daughter was born in Wakefield in 1837. She married Joseph Newcommon, brother of Patrick Mullin's wife in 1858. Matilda died in 1917.

James Mullin youngest child of Jervis and Elinor(Adams)Mulline was born in the new home by the Gatineau River. He married Elizabeth Caufield. They had three children. When the youngest was a few months old James was thrown from a wagon,when the team he was driving bolted suddenly near Farrelton. He was seriously hurt and died a few weeks later. His widow married Thomas Labrick. Of his three children, the eldest, a daughter married Joseph Mullin, son of Patrick.

The second child Jervis Mullin was adopted by some one of the Caufield Family. The younger boy, James born about 1866 married Sarah Caves of Wakefield.

Elinor (Adams) Mullin died in 1870. My mother did not remember her well, but she remembered her funeral. She remembered being held up to "take a last look at grannie, before they take her away".

Of her Grandfather Jervis Mullin she had many memories. Grandfather's periodical visits to the city were an event, for he always came home bearing gifts. His small army pension could scarcely keep him in tobacco, but he always managed. "Granfer, bring me a doll" she would say and he brought it - a lovely wax doll, with blue eyes and curls. "Granfer, bring me a box of paints" and 'Granfer' came home with the paints.

A great-grandson, George Fairbairn, used to watch for him, too when he came to ferry across the river. On his trips to the village he used to wear over his suit a short grey topcoat. He carried a red carpet-bag from which he brought oranges and sugar candies.

He lived for a while with his grand-daughter, Mary Anne (Fairbairn) Johnston, in Ottawa. Although nearing ninety years of age, he would walk miles each day for the exercise. He died at his son Jeremiah's home in Hull. A tablet of stone, to their memory lies in Halls Cemetery, Wakefield. I could write of the day (July 12) that Jervis painted the wood-work and chairs a BRIGHT GREEN when his son and daughter-in-law were off at the Orange picnic! or the day he had the baby (my grandmother) baptised by the Catholic priest while his wife a good Presbyterian, was alseep. I have tried to bring you a true picture of some of the days gone by, and of those two. I inherited the old camp kettle!

Try him with fire. You'll find him true-
In weal or woe; In Danger's Van-
And if the field of fame be lost,
It wont be by an Irishman!

We visited the site of the old Mullin home in Goulburn April 17, 1938, two days after Easter. We found the remains of a well-built cellar, which had remained undisturbed. The timbers of the old house had long since been removed. The walls of the cellar were built of small flag-stones, without mortar, but the workmanship was so good that almost every stone was in it's place. The house had been built with the fireplace in the centre. Part of the fireplace was still intact. Then Helena called to me "I've found the flue! We looked, and sure enough, there was the flue. We found bits of crockery, and parts of the original window glass; also some of the square-shaped nails in 'three sizes'.

The house had stood on a rise of land, and there was a view for a good distance. All of the buildings had been removed to the east half of the lot many years ago. Some twenty yards north of the cellar we found the remains of a underground 'root-house' which had been used for storing vegetables. The well, which was about thirty feet to the north-east of the cellar had been filled in to about two feet from ground level. It measured eight feet across! it had been carefully built and from what we could see of the flag-stones, was in good condition after one hundred and twenty years.

At the present time there is little or no recognizable trace of cellar or well.
