            Edward Henry's Account

Henry Bath & Son


     Marian Osler / Bath / Francis (1841 - 1915)

      Marian was the daughter of Edward Osler and Sarah Atkinson. Edward was a physician / surgeon at the Swansea Infirmary from 1819 -1825 and joined the Royal Navy as a ship's surgeon, doing a tour of duty in the West Indies. He gravitated to the literary field with his publication in 1835 of a biography of the Cornish Admiral, Viscount Exmouth and his authorship of several other books of a scientific nature and many hymns. He became the editor of the Royal Cornwall Gazette in 1841 and moved to Truro, Cornwall. A short biography and an audio of some of his hymns can be found at : Cyber Hymnal His father, also named Edward, was a merchant in Falmouth. His great grandfather, also Edward, is said to have been a merchant seaman and perhaps a pirate.

      In 1866, some two years after the death of her husband, Henry Bath of Longlands, Marian Osler-Bath and her sister Jennette arrived in Dundas, Ontario, Canada to visit their uncle, Featherstone Lake Osler. Marian also brought along her two and a half year old son  Percy Atkinson Bath.(see Jennette's shipboard letter ) Compared to the towns of Swansea and Falmouth the Ontario wilderness during that fall and winter must have been quite a change for the two English ladies. Nevertheless, they appear to have established close, friendly ties with their Osler cousins that would last for the rest of their lives.

      In 1837, Featherstone Lake Osler became one of the first of Ontario's Anglican "saddlebag ministers" who ministered to the far flung wilderness communities. His previous occupation had been as a lieutenant in the Royal Navy, at one time serving on HMS Victory. He turned down an invitation to serve on the "Beagle", as science officer, on it's historic voyage to the Galapagos Islands, because his father was dying.. He must have been a formidable man and an enlightened father for so many of his eleven children to make the mark they would have on Canadian history.

      Featherstone Osler (Jr.) was called to the bar in 1860 and made a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in 1879 and a Judge of the Court of Appeals in 1883. In 1880, he had refused an appointment to the Supreme Court of Canada because he didn't speak French. He retired from the bench in 1910 and became president of the Toronto General Trusts Corporation.

      Britton Bath Osler became a famous criminal lawyer most noted for being the crown attorney in the 1885 trial of Louis David Riel, the leader of two Metis / Indian "rebellions" in western Canada. The Metis were the offspring of mixed European and Indian marriages who depended on the Bison for their livelihood. The Bison were in turn dependant on free and open ranges. Furious at the off handed way the Canadian government had declared its sovereignty over the now province of Manitoba and had begun to survey the land in preparation for its sale to immigrants, Riel and his people seized control and expelled the government officials. He then attempted to negotiate a better deal for the Metis and native peoples, but faced with an approaching army fled to the United States. Several years later he was back, summoned by his people who had begun to feel the full effects of the encroachment of settlers and the loss of the Bison herds. This time the native Indian tribes rose with the Metis. The Canadian Government was faced with a serious challenge that may have resulted in the loss of all the western territories and responded swiftly with an army led by the British General Wollesley, who would later lead the British forces into the Sudan. Skirmishes and full flung battles took place between red coats and Metis / Native warriors with the early victories going to the latter. Riel was eventually defeated and captured, but his trial proved to be one of the most sensitive issues of that time. Riel and many of the Metis were Catholics and had family in French speaking Québec. Naturally, their cause had wide spread support in a province that contained approximately one half of the population of Canada and Riel's prosecution had to be handled in such a way as to leave no doubt that he deserved the sentence of the court. Therefore Britton Bath Osler was pricked as the crown attorney. Though Britton achieved the end with fair means by focusing the trial on Riel's ordering the execution / murder of a vocal opponent (murder being a capital crime), the issue of Riel's hanging still rankles the relationship between English and French Canadians even today.

     Sir Edmund Boyd Osler became a wealthy financier, president of the Dominion Bank, the Ontario Québec Railway, the Toronto Board of Trade, the Toronto Ferry Company and a Director of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Canada North-West Land Company, among others. As such he was a major participant in the construction of Canada's transportation infrastructure that joined the Pacific to the Atlantic and retained British Columbia and the Prairie provinces in the Canadian Confederation. He ran unsuccessfully for Mayor of Toronto, but was elected to the Parliament of Canada in 1896. He died at his home, "Craigleigh", in the Rosedale district of Toronto in 1924.

     Sir William Osler is probably the best known of Marian's cousins and the one with whom she had the closest friendship. He became a world renowned physician and professor of medicine on whom so much has been written that it's pointless to repeat it all here. Suffice to say that he has been claimed as the father of many modern medical practices and that he may have more medical institutions, libraries etc. named after him than any other individual.

          Marion, Jennette and Percy returned to Britain in 1867. She probably moved back into Longlands House in Swansea, left to her in Henry Bath's will, for on November 21, 1867 she married George Grant Francis Jr. at St. James Church in that town. George Francis was the son of a notable Welsh antiquarian (also named George Grant Francis) and was employed as a mining agent. By 1870 George and Marian had emigrated permanently to Canada and had taken up residence in the St. Antoine district of Montréal, Québec. They were to have eight children together despite George's frequent absences on business for the West Canada Mining Co.. Marian's sister Jennette, who sadly never married, became a permanent household member, a second mother to the Marian's brood and "Little Auntie" to the future grandchildren. That their mother had died shortly after Marian's birth may have some bearing on this close relationship.

           Another fixture of the Francis household was William Osler, then a student and later a professor of medicine at McGill University. The future Sir William seems to have suffered from an initial lack of confidence and it was to Marian and Jennette that he turned for help. They would form a practice audience for his lectures, proofread and type his writings and provide a second home for him to which he was closely attached. Sir William had a special affinity for children and would spend much of his leisure time in playing with the Francis brood. As his fame grew and he was called upon to take up positions in the United States and Britain and formed a family of his own, he always kept in contact with Marian. Much of their correspondence has survived and can be found at the Osler Library of McGill University.

          Percy grew up in Montréal and apparently also attended McGill.  In 1886 he married Alice Ruth Whitney and moved with her to Toronto. Though his career as a stockbroker remains in obscurity it is probable he came under the wing of Sir Edmund Boyd Osler and Edmund's sometime business partner Sir Henry Pallet, the builder of Casa Loma in Toronto. From Toronto, the family moved to Oakville, Ontario, where Percy bought a home called "Belaire", built in 1856, right on the shore of Lake Ontario. There the family enjoyed their own beach and maintained a large cherry orchard as part of the property. In 1908 Percy became the first president of the Oakville Sports and Leisure Club, served on the town council and by 1912 had begun, in partnership with V. Robin, the first Ford Motor dealership in the town. Percy and Alice raised three sons and a daughter at Belaire and would make arduous journeys over the poor roads to attend services at St. James Anglican Church in the town. Today, both Belaire and St. James appear much as they were in Percy's time.

          Two of Percy's sons served with the Canadian Forces in the First World War. Edward (Todd) Bath was a Captain in the 48th Highlanders of Toronto, was gassed and captured at the 2nd Battle of Ypres, (Apr. 1915) escaped, recaptured and was released shortly before the Armistice in October of 1918. Unfortunately, the injuries he suffered in the gas attack caused him to succumb to the influenza epidemic shortly after he was liberated. There is a memorial and biography for Todd at the St. Andrew's College site. A letter written to his mother describing some of his adventures can be found on the Edward Bath page. Henry Bath served as a lieutenant in the Royal Flying Corps. Charles was excluded due to a heart defect of which he would die at the age of 48.

          Percy continued to live at Belaire after Alice's death in 1928. He acquired an interest in genealogy and compiled the "family tree" as given below. He had always been a lover of sailing and during his final years had acquired a sailboat aptly called "Wanderer"; for that was what he did whenever possible, spending most of his summers cruising the Great Lakes. He died shortly before Christmas, 1949 in his 86th year.

                                                                                                                 "Belair," Oakville, Dec. 1937.

                                                               It gives me great pleasure to send a copy of the "Family Tree" which

                                                    I hope will be found interesting.

                                                              Please do not feel under any obligation to me, as the work was a

                                                    "Labour of Love" and the expenses of reproduction were taken off my


                                                               With grateful thanks to all those who have helped me.

                                                                                                           Yours sincerely,
