About Sarah Ashmore

From the Parish Register of Kingston, Upper Canada, 1785-1811: "The Captain's first wife was Sarah Ashmore, of Kingsnorton, near Birmingham. She was the widow of a Mr. Bryant, who had also been an officer in the Provincial Marine. Before her first marriage she had lived at Fort Schlosser, N.Y., in the family of Mr. Stedman, to whom Goat Island at one time belonged. On marrying, she removed to West Niagara, near Fort George, she being the only white woman living there. On the reduction, Lyons' Creek, in the Township of Crowland, became her home, but, on marrying Capt. Richardson, she took up her residence in Kingston."
