Description: Seven legal sized sheets of paper, outlining members of the Jarvis family. The papers have blue type ink. The title is across the top centre of the first page. Along the left margin are names typed, separating paragraphs. The subsequent pages have the page number at the top centre. There are pencil markings throughout making notes and corrections. On the last page, reverse, there is black ink handwriting that reads, "E. M. Jarvis, 258 Jarvis St." The pages at one time were held together by a metal fastener, which was removed. The initials "M.J." are typed at the bottom of the last page, along with the date "May 15th 1905".HISTORY:The research was found with a collection of Jarvis family papers. The papers go through the different generations of the Jarvis family, starting with Captain Samuel Jarvis (1720-1783) who died in Long Island after being sent there by Revolutionists from Connecticut. His sons, Munson and William (1756-1828), as well as his nephew, Stephen Jarvis, were all serving under General Simcoe. William left for England after the American Revolution and came back to Upper Canada and served as Provincial Secretary under Simcoe. Munson left for New Brunswick; his descendants eventually made their way to Cornwall and Toronto, Ontario. Stephen Jarvis' grandson, Frederick William Jarvis (1818-1887), married Caroline Skynner of the Anchorage in 1857.
