I am working on a collection of biographies of family ancestors. These can be found by clicking on "Bios" in the main menu bar above.

The first bio that I am announcing is for my great-great-grandfather, Jamieson Smith. Jamieson's daughter Matilda married Edwin Appleton in Markham, Ontario, in 1858. Edwin and Matilda named my grandfather Frederick Jamieson Appleton after his grandfather Jamieson Smith.

Old Jamieson's Death Register entry states that Jamieson was a member of the British 83 Regiment of Foot. Jamieson's bio includes an overview of the history of the 83rd Regiment, highlighting the period when he was enrolled. The "83rd" played an essential role in the 19th-century history of Canada.
