Business Type: Butcher

James W. Bell

When the various sources and directories confuse the first names and initials of men with the same surname, chaos can ensue. James W. Bell and William Bell may be the same man with different careers in different decades. “J.W.” Bell was listed in D&B as a Tavern owner as early as January 1869. “William” Bell […]

Simon St. Michel

Simon St. Michel started in business sometime in the early 1870’s as he is listed as a 32 year-old, Quebec-born butcher in the 1871 Census, as well as in Lovell’s Province of Ontario Directory. By 1874 St. Michel formed a partnership with another butcher named Didace Grise and they operated a butcher and grocery store […]

Paul E. Sova

Paul Sova was active in 1881 as a butcher, for the Village Council transferred the butcher’s licence belonging to E.B. Whytall to him at a council meeting held on July 18th [FFG 23 July 1881; 2]. This may only have been temporary as Sova was only 23 and he does not appear in any of […]

D. Carville

A “D. Carville” appears in the 1869 Province of Ontario Gazetteer and Directory.

William Waffle

William Waffle bought the grocery business of W.W. Blott in November 1887, and took Daniel Duggan into partnership [CP 11 Nov 1887; 1]. They were soon “settled in” with a fine display in the front of their shop [CP 25 Nov 1887; 1]. This partnership was dissolved by March of 1889 when Duggan opened his […]

M.H. (Mervyn Henry) Cochrane

M.H. Cochrane ran a livery stable in Fenelon Falls throughout most of the 1870’s before opening a butcher shop in 1880. He appears as Henry Cochram, a 29 year-old, Ontario-born Quaker, in the 1871 Census, but the spelling used here was used consistently in various directories. Cochrane entered into a short-lived partnership with a man […]

George Whissle

George Whissle had at least two business partners while he ran a butcher shop in Fenelon Falls. The first partnership was in operation by August 1883 when the Gazette reported a burglary in Ellis and Whissle’s store [FFG 11 Aug 1883; 2]. This partnership was eventually dissolved in favour of a second when Whissle and […]

Copp & Oullette

“Mr. Samuel H. Copp [1875-1921], son of Mr. John Copp [1846-1929] of Fenelon, has bought out Mr. Paul Ouellette’s butchering business, and solicits a share of public patronage in an advertisement that will be found in another column [FFG 21 May 1897; 5]. The entry in D&B implies, however, that this was a partnership instead […]

E.B. (Ewebank Benson) Whytall

E.B. Whytall was the son of Benson Whytall of Verulam. He was 19 years-old in the 1871 Census. He set up a butcher shop in the premises vacated by Thomas Nevison (opposite Moffatt & McFarlands’ grocery on Colborne Street) in November 1880 [FFG 27 Nov 1880; 2]. His first advertisement in the Gazette was dated […]
