Henry Howse Sr

- Carol Vulliamy




          Henry Howse Sr- 1809- 1891- Son of Joseph Howse

 

An only son to Joseph Howse was an honor extraordinaire

He basked in the glorious footsteps following them with care

My Dad is so amazing and people listen to his thoughts

I’d like to grow up strong and measure his stature a lot.

 

          The Hudson’s Bay Company put my Dad in charge I know

My Mom Mary and I appreciated the honor that bestowed.

Those were the days when buffalo roamed the Prairie Plains

Bygone days - the memories and tall grass are all that remain.

 

Metis unrest is beginning; moving to Fort Victoria is a must

Land gone; work going, livelihood at risk; now a search for trust!

Welcome friends, Reverends George and John McDougall said

“Your hired,” said the Hudson Bay Company “here’s your bed.”

 

Henry was a trader and carpenter at Fort Victoria it’s recorded

He constructed the clerk’s quarters; preserved but unrecorded.

Close by friends and family, Henry and Jane Spence remained.

Our Metis Heartland will be our home for generations to claim.

 

As Jane Howse grew up; a beautiful, brave woman was she

Rescuing an emancipated man on the river bank- no banshee

Sam Livingston was his name; golden hair the color of wheat,

Who would know that this man would sweep her off her feet?
