John W. Hall, Ph.D

Revised 2007

Introduction

Both James Hall (ca. 1816 - ca. 1885) and Jane Breakey (ca. 1817 - ca. 1895) were born in Ireland and both were said to have emigrated to Canada “at a young age.” James may have been born in County Armagh, a birthplace that was later erroneously claimed for his son Samuel. Jane, family tradition has always affirmed, came from Ballybay in County Monaghan where Breakeys had lived for over a century. It is probable that she was the daughter of William and Anne Breakey who settled in Cavan Township, Durham County, Ontario in 1819. James was just twenty and Jane barely eighteen when they were married in Port Hope, Ontario in 1835.

            The couple may have spent their first years together in the United States where their daughter Mary Ann was born. By 1838 though, when their daughter Susan was baptized, they were back in Canada. In 1840 James leased a clergy reserve in Cavan Township, north of Port Hope though their resources were meagre. During the next decade they did not have either oxen or horses to work the farm with. All the remaining children were born in Durham County and James and Jane slowly improved their circumstances until1867 or 1868 when the family moved to St. Vincent Township in Grey County. In 1867 their son William, who had previously been a teacher, became a Methodist minister in nearby Owen Sound. James Jr. was also farming in Grey in 1868 but we do not know whether he left home before or after the move. By the time it happened, Mary Ann and Frances were married and gone. Elizabeth also remained behind after her marriage in May 1868. Eventually all three daughters and their families moved to Grey as well.

            Over the years, the remaining sons left home one by one, most to become farmers though Thomas became a Methodist minister, Norton a carpenter and Robert a teacher. When the 1881 census was taken only Henry, James’s and Jane’s youngest son, was still with them on the farm in Collingwood Township. Robert was teaching nearby. James may have died late in the decade as both Robert and Henry moved to British Columbia about 1890.  In the 1891 census, Jane, then a widow, was living with her daughter Elizabeth. Jane’s name has not been found in the 1901 census and she is presumed to have died in the previous decade.

            In all James and Jane had fourteen children, twelve of whom lived to adulthood, and sixty-six known grandchildren some of whom were born after 1901.
