Name of creator
The Collins and Gammon families are descendents of Thomas Alexander Stewart and Frances Stewart, Irish immigrants who arrived in the Peterborough area in 1822.
Fonds was in the custody of Carol Winter, and later, Kathy Hooke. Kathy Hooke passed it on to Trent University Archives in 2013. The fonds was donated by members of the Gammon and Collins families: Jennifer Gammon, Michael Collins, Alexandra Gammon, and Michelle Gammon.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of original letters, certificates, sketches and maps pertaining to the family of Thomas Alexander Stewart and Frances Stewart of Peterborough, Ontario and their descendents. Included are letters to Ellen Dunlop written by Frances Stewart, Catharine Parr Traill, Harriet Beaufort, and others. Also included are pieces of sheet music and music certificates of Alice Roger Collins; medical certificates of Doctor Thomas Hay; newspaper clippings related to Katherine E. Wallis; and a scrapbook of nineteenth-century ferns and mosses of the United Kingdom.
Some of the items are extremely fragile, including the scrapbook of ferns and mosses. Handle with care.
