Notes for M.P HERBERT BIGGAR:

 

HERBERT BIGGAR, one of the oldest and most honoured settlers of Brantford Township and Brant County, was born in Queenston, Ont., Jan. 6, 1809, and is a son of Robert Biggar, whose sketch appears elsewhere in this work. he was but seven years of age when his father was located on the farm now owned by the former, and being reared to farming pursuits, he early assisted his father. At the age of thirty years, he went to Brantford and engaged with his brother Hamilton in the mercantile business. He then moved back to the farm, and drove the first team that ever crossed the bridge over the Grand River at Brantford. He purchased a farm on Whiteman's Creek, Brant County; but six months later, in 1838, on the event of his father's death, he came to the home farm, and has since resided there. This farm consists of 114 acres on the first range, Lot 10, Brantford Township. Mr. Biggar, who is a Reformer in politics, represented South brant for seven years, between 1850 and 1860, in the Upper Canadian Parliament. He has been a member of the Township and County Councils, as well as Reeve in Brantford Township. He is a member of the Wesleyan Methodist Church and is a life member of the Oddfellows fraternity. Mr. Biggar was married in April 1831, to Jane Ellis, a native of Mt. Pleasant, and to this union seven children were born, four living - Mary, widow of Archibald McCallum, of Hamilton; Hannah, wife of Rev. Mr. Griffin, of Guelph; Herbert, on-farm adjoining that of his father; and Sarah. Mr. Biggar's first wife died about the year 1868 or 1869, and he again married in 1874, his second wife being Mrs. Marion Long, of Brantford, who died Dec. 15, 1882. His first wife was an adherent of the Methodist body, and his second originally attended Zion Presbyterian Church, but on her marriage with Mr. Biggar joined the Methodist Church.
