3:00pm – George Neville: “Loyalist Land Grants along the Ottawa (Grand) River in 1788”

Being a 7th generation descendant, through his mother, of Loyalist Daniel Shipman, Sr., progenitor of all the Shipmans of eastern Ontario, George will provide a brief, introductory sketch of the circumstances under which this man and some of his family arrived with Jessop's Corp along the St. Lawrence River front in 1784.

The subject of this presentation, which will touch on the two great river systems of Ontario, the St. Lawrence and the Ottawa, will complement Brian Tackaberry's Friday tour of the Rideau Valley to Merrickville.

This presentation will be published as an illustrated Bytown Pamphlet in January 2019 by The Historical Society of Ottawa. Copies of the pamphlet will be available for sale at nominal cost at the Conference.
