  • Notes 
    • Walter Glendinning, Lot 29, Concession 1, is the youngest son of Archibald and Jane Glendinning. His Father and family emigrated from Dumfries-shire, Scotland, in 1820, and settled on Lot 28, Concession 1. Archibald married after he came to Canada; his family consisted of three sons and five daughters, viz. : Elizabeth, Isabella, Archibald (dead), Margaret, Janet, Robert, Walter and Jane. Mr. Glendinning, sen'r, kept the first store in the, near Ellesmere, and was also postmaster, the latter position being now in the possession of Walter. He was a Major in the militia, and was at the head of his company during the Yonge Street skirmish in 1837; his military suit and sword are yet preserved as relics by the family. He was one of the first Councillors on the old District Council and was also Secretary of the Scarboro School Commissioners, and retained that office several years. He was also Assessor and Collector of the Municipality for a lengthened period. Although principally engaged in mercantile pursuits, he and his brother William farmed at one time four hundred Acres of land. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church. He died on May 29, 1883, after a long and industrious life, leaving behind him a fine property and, what is still better, a respected and honoured name. Walter (whose name heads this sketch) married Isabella, daughter of John Robertson, a descendant of an old pioneer of Simcoe, by whom he had six children, one son and five daughters. Like his Father he is a member of the Presbyterian Church, and a moderate Conservative in politics. (vol. ll, p. 270)
