    The couple is living in Brighton village, occupation shoemaker. They did report crops in the Sched. 4 Cultivated Lands schedule of this 1871 census. David was O=owner of 1 1/4 acres of Brighton Twp. Concession 4 Lot 5.

    Note, a mystery 'Alex VanValkenburg' was enumerated on or close to Lot 6 in the 4th Concession, on this same census. Perhaps this was a son of David and Cynthia.

    Does anyone have any information for them?

    A CLUE: Alex. VV aged 58 in 1871 (b. abt 1823 in Ontario) is a separate, but adjoining, household to the C.A. Fiddick household on this census. Viewing the corresponding Agricultural Schedule of this census, the Fiddick household reported crops at Brighton Township Concession 4 Lot 6. The Land Registry Abstract Index of Deeds for that full 200-acre parcel shows part-owner Charles Fiddick. Another part owner was David Mahany VanVolkenburg and his wife Cynthia. By whatever means he obtained the small portion of 34 acres, is not known, but on 25 Aug 1846, David wrote a will regarding the property which was registered in 1877, probably at his death.

    Note: Alex was of age to be a son of David and Cynthia, although no children have been found in census records. The day that David VV wrote the will, was the day a surgeon had come to amputate his foot. In petitions to various land boards David explained he had retained a musket ball in his ankle from the war of 1812's Battle of Lundy's Lane, and finally was compelled to have the foot amputated, 32 years and one month to the day of the Battle. Although David had received a land grant for military service, he had been unable to perform settlement duties and thereby forfeited the land. He was a shoemaker by trade and a "cripple", and perhaps any children had lived 'out' of the home.
