Further Information and Sources

Listed as “Miss” in the burial register.

In his Parish Register of Kingston  Young notes that according to Hannah Cartwright’s information on the Cartwright monument (now not visible) “she was born December 25, 1792 and died December 21, 1812.”  The register shows the baptism on 3 February 1793 and her burial on 21 December 1812.

Digital Kingston (accessed 2016-03-04) refers to a notice in the Kingston Gazette (26 December 1812, pg 4, col 3) of the death of Cartwright’s “eldest daughter.”

The Cartwright obelisk records three generations of the Cartwright family, beginning with Richard Cartwright, Sr. and his wife Joanna Beasley: Honourable Richard Cartwright (son of Richard Sr., buried in Montreal), Magdalen Secord (wife of Hon R. Cartwright), and their children, Mary Magdalen Dobbs (wife of A.T. Dobbs), James, Richard*, Hannah, Thomas, Stephen and twins John Solomon and Robert David.

* Richard Cartwright died 4 May 1811 but is not listed in the burial register and is assumed to have been buried elsewhere.
