Shared note
from Janes Family History (1980) ****Ormond/Orman/Ormand**** Matilda Meredith Janes, baptised April 7, 1828 in Glastonbury, Somersetshire, England, lived her entire life in Canada near Byron, Ont. She married Meredith Orman, who was born in Wiltshire, England, in 1822, in the early 1850s. As a young man Meredith Ormond (There is a name change in the Orman family. Originally it was Ormond. It is said that Meredith Ormond had a half brother who continually got into debt. In order to avoid the bills for the debts, Meredith changed his name to Orman. One son, Truman, kept to the original name.) lived and worked in the Iona area, near St. Thomas. He travelled on foot to court Matilda Janes. Often she would walk through the woods to meet her suitor. They settled on their 150 acre farm, lot 49, concession B in Westminster Twp., Middlesex County, built a log cabin and cleared the land. This farm is on Commissioner's Road opposite Kain's Road, about 2 miles west of Byron. It remains in the Orman family today (1980) -- after having gone from Matilda and Meredith Orman to their son Walter. Truman Ormond farmed the holding after his father's death [1892] until Walter was able to take over. From Walter Orman the farm went to Meredith and Matilda Orman's granddaughter Helena Meriam Dunn; then to their great-grandson James Dunn. In 1980 it is in the family of James and Marjorie Dunn. [Walter Orman, oldest living son, had no family so the property went to his sister Annie Orman Meriam 's daughter Mary Helena Meriam Dunn. Was Walter's wife Elizabeth Dunn related to Mary Helena's husband Charles Dunn?] Matilda and Meredith Orman had eight children -- four boys and four girls. They were: Edward (1852-Jan. 24, 1872); Annie (May 1, 1855-Dec. 24, 1925) who married Wesley Meriam; Eliza (Feb. 9, 1857-July 4, 1923) who married John Ireland; Walter (Apr. 7, 1860-Mar. 20, 1921) who married Elizabeth Dunn; Mary (1861-Sept. 8, 1883);Meredith (1864-Apr. 1, 1879); Truman (Mar. 19, 1866-Dec. 24, 1931) who married Alice Madden; and Catherine (Mar. 28, 1873-Sept. 11, 1918) who married Solomon Gosnell. Meredith Orman assisted in the building of St. Anne's Anglican Church, Byron, which was opened in 1853. He was laid to rest in St. Anne's Cemetery on May 8, 1892. His wife passed away July 19, 1902, and is buried in the family plot along with several of their family.
