Description: Philip Pardy, shown here on the left in this photo, was born in Somerset, England, in 1851 and came to Canada in 1875, settling first in Oakville, where he had an uncle who was a harness maker. He married Jemima Flewelling, of Oakville, in 1882, and moved with his family to Cooksville about 1888 where he set up a harness shop. He had two sons and three daughters, one of whom died in infancy. Philip and his wife were faithful members of Cooksville Methodist Church, later Cooksville United Church. Philip taught an adult Bible class in the Sunday school and also served on the finance committee of the church. The Port Credit News published an article about him on February 20, 1931, titled “80 Years Old Still Going Strong”, on the occasion of his 80th birthday. He died about 1935 and his wife, Jemima died two years later. They are both buried in Cosmopolitan Cemetery, Erindale.
