  • Name William Bullard Teeple 
    Born 18 Jan 1788 
    Gender Male 
    Anecdote
    • William B. Teeple, the eldest son, was born 28th January 1788,
      and was, like his father, an enormously big man, and a captain
      of Provincial Militia at the battle of Lundy's Lane. At the
      latter engagement he had, as an orderly, a French-Canadian of
      rather small stature who used to say to his towering commanding
      officer: "Captain Teeple you are a very big man, and when the
      fighting gets hot, I am going to get behind you". In actual
      warfare, however, the little French-Canadian exposed himself so
      fearlessly that he was mortally wounded early in the battle. A
      portion of the scarlet uniform worn by Capt. W.B. Teeple in
      that engagement, made up in the form of the quaint "knitting
      sheaths" of the period, is still in the possession of the
      writer, one of his grandsons. On the 4th January 1818 he was
      married to Jemima Leek, at Temperanceville, now Orwell, by
      Mahlon Burwell, J.P., and soon after settled on 200 acres of
      land being lot 1, concession 8, in the Township of Malahide,
      County of Elgin, the land being a grant from the Crown for
      military services rendered. He died on the 8th of April, 1857,
      leaving a goodly estate. His children in order of birth, were
      Jared Topping, Susan Celestia, James Jackson, Symantha J.,
      Temperance Ursula, Lydia Ann, Stephen William, and Sarah, the
      last two being twins. Of these, Lydia Ann was married to James
      F. Waterbury on the 22 of June 1852, by Rev. Caleb Burdick, at
      Temperanceville. At this date (1899), she resides at
      Cambridgeport, Mass., and is the mother of the writer of these
      annals.
    Died 8 Apr 1857
