Description: The Magrath Cottage was most likely located at Lot 6, Range 1 NDS. It was probably built for Thomas Magrath, the eldest son of the Rev. James Magrath. Rev. James Magrath came out with his family to Upper Canada in 1825 as Rector of St. Peterís, at Springfield-on-the-Credit, later Erindale. Thomas Magrath was married some time around 1840 while he was still quartered in Kingston with his regiment, and his only child, a son, was born there January 31, 1843. His wife died a few days later and the child was brought up by Miss Anna Magrath, daughter of the Rector, in her father's home. When Tom left the army he returned to Erindale and lived with the family to at least 1846. It seems unlikely that he ever lived in the Cottage. The Cottage was demolished some time after 1969.
