Biography1907 Newmarket, Ontario, Canada; From the Commemorative Biographical Record:
"Luke Gibbons, generally known as 'Squire Gibbons', who for over twenty years has occupied the responsible and honorable position of Commissioner of the Court of the King's Bench, in Osgood Hall, Toronto, is one of the prominent men of County York. His whole life has been passed in the home he still occupies, a farm in Concession 3, Lot 31, King township, where he was born, April 23, 1849 I believe this year should be 1846), son of Patrick and Catherine (Banks) Gibbons.
Patrick Gibbons was born in County Mayo, Ireland, March 16, 1806, son of Luke Gibbons, who lived and died in that county. Patrick came to Canada in 1830, landing in Quebec after an eight week voyage. He proceeded almost immediately to County York, secured employment with William Lloyd, a farmer of King township, and remained with him for fourteen years. by that time he was able to buy a farm for himself, and he settled down on a tract of wild land on Concession 3, Lot 31, which had been the Gibbons homestead ever since. He cleared this and made it into a good farm, working on it up to the time of his death, Dec. 26, 1876. In 1830, he married Bridget Burke, who died about 1838, the mother of three children: Mary, who married Andrew O'Brien, and went North; Michael, who died young; and John, who went to Western Ontario in his boyhood and there married Elizabeth Callaghan and died in 1883 leaving children in that section. In 1844, Mr. Gibbons married Miss Catherine Banks, only daughter of James and Catherine (McCormick) Banks. She was born in County Sligo, in 1808, and came to Canada alone when a young lady, her parents remaining in their native land, where the mother reached the extreme age of ninety-nine years and six months, and the father ninety-nine years and nine months. Mrs. Gibbons faithfully shared all the hardships of the pioneer life which was their lot during the earlier part of their marriage and brought up a family of four children. She passed away in her home, March 27, 1882.
Both Patrick Gibbons and his wife were devout Catholics and active in church work. He was one of a committee of six who founded and built the first Catholic Church of Newmarket and also helped to secure the later church built in 1870. He was a Reformer in his views of political questions, but never sought to hold any office. Mr. Gibbons was a man of unusual intellectual powers, well trained in his youth and had many scholarly attainments. His children have inherited his mental traits, and both daughters have been successful teachers.
1. James, the oldest son, born in 1845, went into the cattle business, as a drover, selling stock in Toronto. He married Miss Mary Canon (sic) of King township, and they made their home permanently in Ingersoll. Here he died, April 8, 1890, leaving his wife with two children, Joseph and Annie.
2. Luke (who this is written about)
3. Catherine born in 1851, was educated in the King township schools, where she also taught three or four years. She is now teaching in the East Indies.
4. Annie, born in 1853, taught in the county schools until her marriage to the late Dr. William Canon (sic), a dentist of Toronto. Mrs. Canon learned her profession from her husband, and since his death has herself carried on the business. She has four children, Fred, Herbert, Clara and Philo.
Luke Gibbons was given an unusually careful education, beginning in home schools. From these he progressed to the Newmarket high school, and then to the Toronto Normal School, from which he graduated in 1873. He taught in the states of Ohio and Michigan the following three years. He then returned to County York and after spending the next seven years engaged in farming, received in 1885, the appointment of Commissioner of the Court of King's Bench, with headquarters at Osgoode Hall, Toronto. This position he still holds, and has proved himself most efficient. From 1892 to 1905 he also served as justice of the peace for County York, and was offered the place of County Commissioner, but declined it. He is an adherent of the Reform party. Aside from his official work, Mr. Gibbons has always maintained a keen interest in the agricultural progress of his section of the county. He is himself a large landowner, and besides his father's homestead, on which he has made his home since his marriage, he owns 300 acres more in the township. For four years he has been president of the North York Farmers' Institute, and is one of its most active promoters. Fraternally he belongs to Newmarket Lodge, United Workmen.
Mrs. Gibbons was before her marriage Miss Annie Menton, a daughter of John and Annie (Canon) Menton, old Toronto residents. John Menton was from Ireland, where he had been a teacher. He and his wife both died in Toronto, where they had always made their home after coming to Canada. Of their children, four besides Mrs. Gibbons are living, namely: William, a contractor in Toronto; Patrick is a retired contractor; Michael is in the same business in Toronto; and Kate is a dressmaker in that city. Mrs. Gibbons grew up in Toronto, receiving quite a good education, and in 1885 married Mr. Gibbons. Two sons and a daughter have been born to then, viz.: John J., born April 8, 1886, a student of the Newmarket High School; Frank L., born Jan. 25, 1890, also a high school student; and Mary Florence, born November 14, 1895, attending the Toronto separate schools. The family are all connected with the Roman Catholic Chuch, in which they are all prominent. They hold a high place in the esteem of all who know them. Mr. Gibbons is a man of great force of character and of marked ability, and well deserves the confidence which is place in him."5

Luke Gibbons

A York Pioneer

93 Year Old Resident Of King Township

In 1830 Patrick Gibbons landed in Canada, a typical young Irish immigrant, with no capital but his health and strength. He found work first in the saw mill of William Lloyd, at Glenville. This saw mill had owners who were well known in their day; Mark Hughes, Ellis Hughes, Van Allan, father of James Van Allan and lastly Richard Kirton, a man who by hard work and thrift accumulated a fortune that enabled him to leave a legacy to the Baptist Denomination for building of Kirton Memorial Hall, a part of the McMaster University buildings in Toronto.
Patrick first settled on Lot 33, Con. 3, King Township (200 acres) of Clergy Reserve Land. Then he heard of a fine Irish community in Adagala Township, in the County of Simcoe. This home did not have the appeal of his first choice however, and after a few years spent there he came back to King Township, and bought from Canada Company , the East ½ of Lot 31, Con. 3. It was hilly, but here he built himself a comfortable house and outbuildings, in the shelter of a big sugar loaf hill, locally taking the name of "Gibbons' Peak" for it was a prominent land mark for miles around. He stayed the rest of his blessed days, contented and happy with his growing family around him. In the first years, sale of timber cordwood, the burning of lime and charcoal added to the family funds.


In 1846 this industrious settler made and sold fifty-five thousand hand made shingles to George Shanks for his new farm buildings at $2.50 a thousand, and in the same year he sold to Hewitt and Strachan, contractors all the stones they could find on his farm for $40. These went into the macadamizing of Yonge Street when that improvement to this highway was done. For two winters he made shingles selling his total output to neighbours. This added well to his income in those days, and gave him a good start on his land payments. Lime from the Gibbons kilns was used in the building of the King Christian Church and also the Kettleby Temperance Hall. On the "millstone creek" on his farm, the mill stones for the Glenville flour mill built by the Cawthras were fabricated. These stones are now preserved at the Glennville Public School grounds as relics. With all this activity and with his growing children around him the Gibbons farm was a happy home.
Patrick married Catherine Banks in 1834. Five children were born to them. The oldest son Michael, when 16, was killed by being thrown from a horse. The fractured arm mortified, as competent surgical care was not available. This was a sad loss to the home. Then the oldest daughter was poisoned by eating blood root in mistake for pepper or krinkle root, a spicy edible root to be dug up under wet leaves in the forest, and eaten as a relish in the spring season. From this mistake she died, and another tragedy clouded the home life, calling forth the sympathy of neighbours. These two children were buried in what is now known as the Anglican Cemetery on the hill top as you approach Newmarket from the west, on Eagle Street. This ground was donated by Dr. Beswick in the early days, for a public burying ground. Beswick's grave stone says he died aged 119 years. The stone stands in the south east corner of the grounds, and can easily be found. At that date, 1836, there were families in the Newmarket district, and St. John's Church had not been started.
The next sons, John and James left home, to go into business for themselves. Luke, the next son was a mainstay. He taught school awhile, but came back to the farm, as the aging parents desired. He soon got into local temperance societies, literary and other social circles. The Farmers' Institute work found him an active and useful helper. He was of a sociable disposition, and from his uniform good nature made his company agreeable to young and old. He was appointed a Justice of the Peace and Commissioner in the High Court of Justice and held this for many years. In politicas he has always been a liberal. His life long friend, Sir William Mulock, whose farm almost adjoined the Gibbons home often exchanged friendly visits with his friend "Luke".
Sir William years ago encouraged orchard planting in North York and yearly gave generous prizes to his constituents for the best plantings. Luke was a prize winner for his orchard, and was well rewarded in after years by the fine product of his trees which gave him both pleasure and profit.
A lot of Indian relics were found on this farm, and Luke had a fine collection. A black stone book is among the rare pieces he has. This object must have been lost by white missionaries or explorers. Archeologists are at a loss to explain it. He collected a fine library, and was a great reader, and one of the best posted men in the community.
Then Luke took as his bride, Annie Menton of Toronto, in June, 1885. They were married in St. Patrick's Church, Toronto and toured to Niagara Falls, the scene of so many happy honeymoons. Their children are Frank, John, and Mrs. Geo. Paxton, with whom he is now living.
He is perhaps one of the oldest residents of King Township, being 93 on 23rd of April 1938, retaining fair health, and his memory unimpaired. His whole life has been spent within sight of his birthplace, and he is rooted in the soil of his nativity as firmly as a sturdy oak tree and loyal to the end to what he had identified himself in his young manhood. His long life can best be appreciated when it is remembered that he was living when:
First Parliament of Canada met at Bytown.
The first oil well drilled in Pennsylvania in Ont.
The first telegraph was invented.
The first telephone was invented.
The first Atlantic cable laid.
When slavery was the law in the U.S.A.
When pounds, shillings and pence were currency in Canada.
Before France was a republic.
When Ottawa was Bytown, Kettleby was Tyrwhitt's Mills, Aurora was Machell's Corners.
When candles were the only illumination.

Death11 December 1941 Kettleby, York County, Ontario, Canada; A front page article appeared in the Aurora Banner newspaper on Friday, December 12th, 1941.

LUKE GIBBONS, 96, KING TOWNSHIP PIONEER DIES

One of King Township's oldest resident, Luke Gibbons, passed away at his daughter's home near Kettleby, on Thursday morning in his 96th year after an illness of some weeks.
As a young man he was for some years a school teacher, later, he tried his hand at writing and had a novel published. For many years he was a collector of Indian relics and mementoes of the early history of the district. He was justice of the peace in King Township for many years.
Son of Patrick Gibbons, a young Irish immigrant who came to Canada in 1830, Luke has spent most of his 96 years on the farm which belonged to his father. The farm adjoins that of Sir William Mulock, and the two nonagenarians exchanged friendly visits on several occasions.
Mr. Gibbons was an ardent temperance worker, joining the Sons of Temperance at Kettleby at the age of 20. He was a devout Roman Catholic and a Liberal in politics.
Surviving him are his daughter, Mrs. George Paxton, two sons, Frank of Richmond Hill, John of Montana and nine grandchildren.

Anecdote This information was gathered from Patrick Monogue, grandson of Thomas Henry Monogue.

     Thomas Henry was a conservative (in the political sense) ans was well-known by the people in government. Pat thinks that is how his father Thomas John got a job at the post office at the young age of 19. Thomas Henry was a tailor and he worked at a shop on James Street. Later, he owned a small tailor shop on Concession Street. This shop he later turned into "Tom Monogue's Ice Cream Parlour". Marlene Pryor has a picture of the sign for the shop. Although, Patrick does not remember his grandfather having an ice cream store, he does remember him bringing big tins of ice cream to the picnics they would have at Concession Park. Agnes, Thomas's daughter was also a seamstress but she worked for a big tailor outfit on King Street. When Thomas Henry got older he sold the shop and went to work for the Liquor Control Board store at Barton and Ottawa. His health deteriorated and he became confused probably from atherosclerosis and he came to live with Pat's family on Huron Street for a while because grandma couldn't take care of him by herself. He eventually went back to live with grandma and his daughters on Kensington Street. He stayed in the upstairs bedroom and he used to say he heard a baby crying (which would have been Marlene, Dorothy's daughter) but they just told him he was imagining things because they didn't want to explain that Dorothy had a baby. He died in the upstairs bedroom and on the same day "Aunt Lizzie" (Gibbons Armstrong) also died. So Grandma lost both her husband and sister on the same day.; Principal=Thomas Henry Minogue 
(Witness) CensusJune 1911 Hamilton, Ontario, Canada; "Thom. Monogue", HH #65, in Barton Township, married, white, male, born March 1872, 39 years of age, born Quebec, Catholic, Irish, Canadian, clerk in the tailor business, can read and write, worked past 50 weeks. Living with him:

Agnes M., daughter, single, born Jan. 1900 in Ont., aged 11, Irish, Canadian, Catholic.
Elizabeth, daughter, single, born April. 1903 in Ont., aged 8, Irish, Canadian, Catholic.
Dorothy C., daughter, single, born Feb. 1908 in Ont., aged 3, Irish, Canadian, Catholic.; Principal=Thomas Henry Minogue12 
Anecdotecirca 1934 Kensington Street, Hamilton, Wentworth County, Ontario, Canada; Pat used to go to his Grandma Monogue's house every Wednesday after school because she would bake bread and fry doughnuts on that day. They were living on Kensington Street and Pat's family lived on Grovesnor and he went to St. John's Elementary School at that time. Grandma also used to give him a card with $5 in it every St. Patrick's Day.
When Grandma's house on Gage Ave. was sold, Jimmy Young called Pat and said that when they cleaned out the attic many of the gifts she had received over the years were still there in their boxes unused (boxes of handkerchiefs, stockings, etc.) and all the cards still had the money in them that people had given her.; Principal=Patrick Thomas Monogue
