Bone Family fonds

  • ON00421 MG 7
  • Fonds
  • 1932-1993

The records comprising the Bone Family fonds, MG 7, are arranged and described at the series and sub-series levels and consist of 15 cm of material including prize ribbons, badges, printed material, correspondence, certificates, photographs, and a commemorative sign. The records document the involvement of Percy Bone and W. Arthur Bone in the Canadian National Exhibition Association and their ties with the Horticultural programme of the annual CNE. The fonds consists of two sous-fonds reflecting the fact that two individuals were responsible for the creation of the fonds as a whole: the late Percy Bone, and his son W. Arthur Bone.

Within the Percy Bone sous-fonds, there are four series: Prize Ribbons, MG 7-1-1; CNE Files, MG 7-1-2; Certificates, MG 7-1-3; Badges, MG 7-1-4. Comprising the W. Arthur Bone sous-fonds are three series: CNE Files, MG 7-2-1; CNE Committee Badges, MG 7-2-2; Tree Planting Sign, MG 7-2-3. A logical arrangement has been imposed on the material as it lacked any discernible original order.

Of special interest are the badges received by Percy Bone as a Director of the CNE and those acquired as a member of the CNE's Women's Committee. Also significant are the photographs and commemorative sign given to Arthur Bone as keepsakes of the 1973 tree planting ceremony in memory of Percy Bone.

Curry Clark family fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1775-[before 1980] predominant [before 1900]

Fonds consists of records created or collected by two families related by marriage, the Clarks and Curries of Chinguacousy Township.

An appreciable part of the records on both sides date from before the intermarriage of the two families (when John Clark married Jane Curry). Because the records can readily be associated with one or another of the two branches, the fonds has been arranged into two series as follows:

Series 1: Curry family records

George W. Gordon family fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1877 - 2009

Fonds consists of records created or collected by members of the prominent Gordon family of Port Credit during the course of their personal and professional lives.

While the records span three generations of the Gordon family, the fonds centres on the personal and professional records of George W. Gordon. His records, as well as smaller bodies of records created by four of his children, Lillian, Rhena, Francis (Frank), and Douglas Wilden, came into the care of his granddaughter, Sandra (Gordon) Moore who partially organized them and conducted related family research. Moore’s own records and those of her ancestors have therefore been treated as an organic whole and no attempt has been made to split the body of records into separate fonds; however, series are described in terms of the family member to whom records pertain (see below for series listing).

George W. Gordon’s records include a substantial number of letters dating from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century from members of the Wingfield, Beamish, and Gordon family members and acquaintances, relating to daily life in small Ontario settler and farming communities such as Utterson, Allensville, Port Credit, Springfield-on-the-Credit (now Erindale) as well as larger centres such as Hamilton and Toronto. Some letters came from further afield in the North West Territories, England, and the US. Domestic and personal records collected or created by Gordon also include administrative records related to fraternal organizations (Masonic and Orange Lodges), household receipts, farming expense accounts and diaries, land and financial records, and various ephemera.

The fonds also contains a significant body of records emanating from George W. Gordon’s role as justice of the peace and magistrate for Port Credit, including marriage licence applications, administrative records related to the Toronto Hamilton Highway Commission, and police court records. The latter include completed forms such as summons, warrants, and complaints, correspondence and signed statements made in court relating to criminal charges and civil infractions.

Records created by Gordon’s children, Lillian, Rhena, Frank, and Douglas Wilden include correspondence, photographs, ephemera, family research, and professional records related to teaching. Lillian Gordon’s records include a significant amount of mid-twentieth-century correspondence with suitors located in Ontario, the US and Germany.

Sandra Moore’s records contain a substantial amount of family research, including correspondence with relatives and records offices in North American and the United Kingdom. Her records include extensive documentation of the Beamish family of which one branch settled in Springfield-on-the-Credit.

Fonds comprises the following series:

Series 1: Wingfield correspondence
Series 2: Beamish correspondence
Series 3: Gordon family correspondence
Series 4: George W. Gordon domestic and personal records
Series 5: Lillian Gordon records
Series 6: Rhena, Frank, and Douglas Wilden Gordon records
Series 7: Sandra Moore (nee Gordon) records
