      GARD

      George Gard and his wife Mary Ann Elizabeth Strowbridge left England in 1882
      with their six children, Annie, Alice, Emily, Edith, Georgina and Frederick
      Charles. They settled at Pt S1/2 Lot 21, Con. 2 (Oxford St. West) when they
      purchased the former Montague property. George cleared the land for his market
      garden.

      Annie, the eldest child, married James Hill. Alice married James Newman. Emily
      married "Red" Farrell. Edith married Harry Smith, then Fred Solomon. Georgina
      married John Mitchell. Frederick C. "Fred" (1877-1946), the youngest issue,
      spent several years in the militia of the Canadian Forces. In 1907, he married
      Ethel Marie HOWE, daughter of Robert HOWE and Emily SHAW, and had four children:
      Edith Gladys, George Frederick, Helen Rosabell, and John Robert. He later
      purchased an additional eight acres on Hutton Sideroad and started a market
      garden and greenhouse business on the property which flourished with his
      children's assistance. In the fall and winter, crops of leaf lettuce, green
      onions, parsley, and watercress were grown in the greenhouse. Rhubarb roots were
      forced in the basement of the house. At that time, large quantities of cabbage,
      carrots and potatoes were stored in the basement or sometimes in pits. Most of
      these vegetables were sold at Covent Garden Market, but some produce was also
      delivered to customers such as Victoria Hospital. Frederick captured any prized
      in the Ontario Vegetable Growers Association and Western Fair competitions. His
      greatest satisfaction came when he won first prize at a Christmas competition at
      Covent Garden Market.

      For many years, Fred served on the board of stewards of Empress Avenue United
      Church and was a school trustee at S.S. #20. One memorable incident in the
      family's history occurred in August 1932 when a train derailed on the other side
      of Oxford Street. The resulting fire sent sparks spewing into the air and
      landing on the roof of the Gard house. Hoses were used to make sure the house
      and barn did not catch fire.

      Of the children, Gladys (1908-1967) married Frank S. Liddell, and her sister,
      Helen (1914-1998) married Harold R. Lucas (see Liddell and Lucas). In 1941,
      George (1911-1969) married Ruth Myrtle Fraleigh (1922) of London. They lived
      east of George's parents on Oxford St. until 1966, when they moved to Broughdale
      Avenue. Their children were Robert George (1942), Carolyn Ann (1945), David
      Charles (1950-1968), and Paul Stephen (1958), none of whom resided here after
      annexation. After George died, Ruth married Ben Mould from London and moved to
      Camrose, Alberta. John (1921-1970), youngest child of Fred and Ethel, married
      Betty Jean Darley of Woodstock, had a son Larry, and lived for a time on Hutton
      Sideroad, north of Oxford Street.

      Burial plots for family members are in Mount Pleasant (Gard) and St. George's,
      London Township (Liddell).
