- Painter 1892 (Approx.) - 1902 (Approx.)
The Gazette records that an Edward Chambers was the “artist” for the new coat of paint for the front of Arnold & Grahams’ shop in June of 1892 [FFG 17 June 1892; 4]. There is a listing for a 24 year-old Presbyterian labourer in the 1891 Census. Chambers may have formed a partnership with John Fell Jr. about 1895, as their names are recorded together in the Province of Ontario Gazetteer and Directory for that year. Chambers appears alone in D&B from January 1897 until September 1899; and in the 1901/02 Ontario Gazetteer and Directory. An Edward Chambers (born 1867) is listed as a printer or painter in the 1901 Census. An Edwin Chambers Jr. was also a painter in the village from 1909 until the 1920s.
