History of the County of Perth, 1825-1902
William Johnston, 1903
Robert Henry, another old pioneer of Ellice, was born in the County of Londonderry, Ireland, in 1825, and came to Canada in 1843, remaining for two years near Toronto as a farm servant. In 1843 he, along with his father, who had joined him in the meantime, settled in Ellice, locating on 500 acres on the 2nd and 3rd concessions. Mr Henry was a person of strong character, and a prominent man in this county. He was first reeve of Ellice, and succeeded Mr Gourlay again in 1854. He was appointed one of the first magistrates after the organization of Perth as a separate county in 1853.
