William Baldwin family fonds
CA ON00009 F 17 · Fonds · 1791-1881, [ca. 1917]

Fonds consists mainly of correspondence of various Baldwin family members, and documents relating to land transactions and business matters. Correspondence relates mainly to estate and business matters, but some letters discuss political and personal issues. Included in the correspondence are some letters of Elizabeth Russell, including a marriage proposal from Robert Baldwin. Other records include commissions, indentures, land patents, deeds, accounts, volumes of legal advice of Robert Baldwin and other lawyers, and other records.

Fonds also includes a number of business and estate papers of Quetton St. George, a French royalist officer who immigrated to Canada in 1798, became active in the fur trade, and whose business William Baldwin superintended after he returned to France in 1815.

Fonds also includes one legal size bound volume with pasted and loose inserts of eight lithographic letters by Robert Baldwin (Dec. 1847), various 1840's Reform Election Committee documents and posters, an English landscape print (published 1797), plus notes and published china and pottery markings for a Toronto auction ca. 1917. Included on one volume page is a sketch map of Thorah Township lots.

The volume's provenance can be traced to the Reform Election Committee of the Township of Thorah through its use as a canvass book for the Legislative Assembly elections of the 1840s for the York North Riding, formerly the 4th of York (County of York -- the Home District, of which Thorah was part until 1850).

The register contains lists of Thorah residents and proprietors from the 1842 Census, 1844 Assessment Roll and the 1847 canvass, with their occupation, assessed value and canvassed political allegiance. Robert Baldwin's lithographic letters soliciting support were composed for distribution to three separate audiences: new voters, supposed friends and supporters, and "to parties who formerly voted against us but who...will be induced to go with us now".

The relevance of the ca. 1917 inserts is unclear, since they may have been placed in the volume after it found itself in the Osgoode Hall Library.
