Fact 1*The following article is from Wikitree (Profile Manager Nathan Daniel) copied from an
article by John W. Sabean.

Harvey Woodruff, born in 1750, passed away in 1813. He was living in Winchester Connecticut in 1777, Sheffield Mass. in 1790, and Herkimer Co. New York state in 1800, then moved to Canada. He later died in 1813 in Pickering Township, Upper Canada (Ontario). Hawkins was the founder of the Canadian Woodruffs as the rest of his brothers stayed in the U.S. All of the Woodruffs in Canada are descended from him.
?There's an extensive article about the Woodruff family of Pickering, by John W. Sabean, that I found online:
Heritage Pickering has been researching the Woodruff family for the purposes of obtaining a heritage designation for a house built in the 1850s by a member of the family. The house, which HP refers to as the Woodruff-MacKenzie house, after its first and its most recent tenants, is at 2935 Brock Road (northeast corner of Brock and Taunton) Lot 18, Concession 4; it was built by Hawkins Woodruff, grandson of the pioneer of the same name.
This article is a summary of what we have learned to date. Fortunately, we were greatly aided in our research by the recent publication of Sybil Stirling's book: To a House in Whitby: The Lynde Family Story 1600 to 1900. All of the early history of the Woodruffs and much of the Canadian material is based on her work.
The progenitor of the Woodruff family in North America was Matthew Woodruff (1616-1682). Matthew emigrated from Cambridge, England, to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the mid-17th century, and later removed to Farmington, Connecticut, being one of the organizers of that town. The next three generations of the Woodruff family lived out their lives in Farmington: Matthew (1646-1691), Samuel (1677-1732), and James (1708-1789).
James Woodruff married Lydia Curtis (1721-1810). Their son Hawkins Woodruff (1750-1813) was born in Farmington, 20 October 1750. Hawkins married Lois Hills in Winchester, Connecticut, 4 June 1773, and they bought a farm and resided in Winchester until at least 1777. Clarissa, their first child was born there. She married Jabez Lynde in 1796, in Winchester Centre.
During the American Revolutionary War, Hawkins served the king as a private in Col Hinman's regiment in 1775, in Capt Curtis' company, and in Lt Col Mead's battalion in 1779. In 1780 he served in the 15th Regiment of Militia under Col Noadiah Hooker. He also saw service at Fort Ticonderoga.
Possibly because of his service with the British forces Hawkins moved his family several times over the next few years, but eventually settled in Litchfleld Township, Herkimer County, New York. From there he immigrated finally to Upper Canada in 1803. According to Stirling, Woodruff's name is on the Pickering Survey Plan of l802.1
Clarissa and Jabez Lynde came with the Woodruffs and lived for a time in the Woodruffs' log cabin. It was then that their third child, Hawkins Woodruff Lynde, was born. Eventually, the Lyndes moved on to Whitby where they were among the earliest settlers of that town, settling on Lot 31, Concession 2. 2
In the year 1805, the York Gazette reported a story concerning the Woodruffs and their neighbours, the Mungers:
'Heroic action of an Upper Canada woman, Mrs. Munger, of Duffin's Creek, in the township of Pitcairn [sic], 23 miles from York, hearing her neighbor, Mrs. Woodruff, holler out for help, immediately took down her husband's gun and ran to her assistance; when she arrived ther she was informed that a very large bear had taken off a sow into the bush. His route being shown her this heroine immediately pursued and found the destroyer in the act of devouring the sow; upon which she rested her gun on a stump and shot Bruin through the head. On weighing the bear it proved to be the largest that had been killed in that township.'3
V.B. Blake identifies Mrs. Woodruff as Charity Powell, wife of Hawkins' son Noadiah, but in fact, Noadiah and Charity were not married until 1809.4 This is clearly a story about Lois Hills Woodruff, wife of Hawkins.
The story may provide us with information as to where Hawkins Woodruff had built his cabin. The Mungers had leased Lot 16, Concession 2 from 1801. The properties for which we have a record relating to Hawkins are: Lot 12, Concession 2 (a Clergy Reserve), which he petitioned to lease in 1804, but was not confirmed until 1810, and Lots 21 in the Broken Front and First Concession (Crown Reserves) which he petitioned to lease in 1807, but did not receive confirmation until 1812.5
These, however, would have been too distant for Mrs. Munger to have heard Mrs. Woodruff calling for help. It seems more likely that the Woodruffs were on either Lot 16 or Lot 17. Blake says that Noadiah Woodruff lived just west of the Mungers, but still on Lot 16, and that he moved to Lot 17 after he purchased it in 1813. His father might very well have occupied these locations previously.
From his home, Hawkins Woodruff ran a tavern from 1806 to his death on 1 January 1813. The Minutes of the Court of General Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the Home District record him as applying for a tavern licence toward the end of December 1805 and again at the end of December 1811. 6 Eli Playter, who was a lieutenant in the Third Regiment of York Militia, had charge of the Whitby Company (of which Jabez Lynde was a member) at the beginning of the War of 1812. In his diaries Playter frequently mentions Woodruff's Tavern, as he travelled to and from York to drill his company or call them to muster.7
Woodruff served as Collector and Assessor for the Township of Pickering in 1806, and as Pathmaster in 1807. He also did jury duty in 1807,1809, and 1811. 8
McKay does not mention a Hawkins Woodruff in his book The Pickering Story, but he does relate the standard story about the origins of Noadiah Woodruff: 'Noadiah was born in Pennsylvania about 1783 and came to Pickering with the Friends settlement.'9 We now know, however, that that story was based more on guesswork then on fact. In the year 1805, Hawkins Woodruff took the Oath of Allegiance required of all immigrants to Upper Canada. He described himself in this way:
'HAWKINS WOQDRUFF late of New York State, a Presbyterian hazel Eyes Dark hair, five feet Seven inches high, a Joiner by Trade, Fifty five Years old, having taken the Oath of Allegiance, Do Subscribe the Same at York the 23d of April 1805.' 10
The Woodruffs were not from Pennsylvania and were not originally Quakers. As will be seen later, some of Hawkins' children did join with the Friends Society after they immigrated to Upper Canada, but there is no evidence that Hawkins ever became a Quaker. In any case the Woodruffs were living in Pickering well before the Quaker settlement began with Timothy Rogers.
Hawkins and Lois Hills Woodruff had seven children: Clarissa, Noadiah, Melinda, Beulah, Lauren, Elizabeth, and Zelotes Harvey.
Hawkins died on 1 January 1813. Although he was 63 years old when he died he had not prepared a will. Noadiah, his eldest son, had to petition the government to administer his father's estate." We have no record of where he was buried.
Clarissa Woodruff (1774-1830), Hawkins' first child, had married Jabez Lynde (1773-1856) in 1796, as we have seen. The Lyndes had come to Upper Canada with the Woodruffs, but settled finally in Whitby. They must have built a log house at first, but in 1810 they erected a frame house. This house is still standing, although it has been moved from its original location along the Kingston Road to Cullen Gardens, on Taunton Road in Whitby, where it serves as a museum.
The only mill available to them to supply sawn lumber was Timothy Rogers' mill in what was to become Pickering Village. Perhaps it was this association with Timothy Rogers and the Quaker community that led Clarissa to join the Friends Society. Jabez, himself, apparently did not join the Quakers, but both Clarissa and her husband are buried in the Friends (Hicksite) Cemetery in Ajax.12
Noadiah Woodruff (1778-1862), eldest son of Hawkins and Lois Woodruff, was born in Farmington, Connecticut, and came with his parents to Upper Canada in 1803. In 1809, he married Charity Powell, a member of one of the Quaker families that Timothy Rogers had invited to Pickering Township. With that association, Noadiah, himself, joined the Friends Society. In 1813, shortly after his father's death, he purchased Lot 17, Concession 2, and there ran a tavern in succession to his father, from 1813 to 1818. McKay (1961) says: 'It is said that the soldiers passing between Toronto and Kingston at the time of the War of 1812 were entertained at the home of Noadiah Woodruff.'13
Noadiah served the nascent community in a number of ways. In 1807, he was appointed a Constable for the Home District. He was appointed a Pathmaster at Pickering's first separate town meeting in 1811, and reappointed to the same position in 1815, 1816,1824.He was Town Warden in 1820; Collector in 1821,1825, and 1828; and Assessor in 1826, 1827, and l829. 14
Among Noadiah's children were: Powell, who built the Brougham Central Hotel; Nelson, a co-owner of Woodruff, Bentley and Company, a patent medicine manufacturer in Brougham — more usually associated with the name of William Bentley, builder of the well-known Bentley House in Brougham; Elizabeth, wife of William Bentley, and Hawkins (of whom more below).
Noadiah died in 1862. His burial site is unknown. The Tremaine Map of 1860 (just 2 years before his death) shows him in possession of the southernmost parts of Lots 17 and 18, Concession 2.
In 1807, Melinda Woodruff (1781-1838), third child of Hawkins and Lois, married Jordan Post, Jr. (1767-1845), the son of Jordan Post and Abigail Loomis.
Post was born in Hebron, Connecticut, and immigrated to Upper Canada about 1782. He was a watch and clock maker, silversmith and jeweler, who was well established in York. He was also a large landowner in York and elsewhere. He owned the whole block from King Street to Wellington Street, between Bay Street and Yonge Street. He laid out the streets through his property, naming one Melinda and another Jordan—names they bear to this day.15
In 1834, Jordan and Melinda moved to Scarborough. Jordan bought 500 acres of land and built a sawmill on Highland Creek. He also kept a general store. Melinda died in 1838; Jordan in 1845. They are both buried in the Methodist Cemetery, Highland Creek. One of their sons was named Woodruff; their other children: Desdemona, Sophronia, Jordan, Melinda, Maria Clarissa.
Hawkins' daughter Beulah (b. 1783) married Paul Hayward in 1803, in Oneida County, New York. By April 1804, the Haywards were living in York from which Hayward acted as agent for Hawkins when he petitioned for a lease of Lot 12, Concession 2, in Pickering.16
In 1810, Hawkins' son Lauren (or Lawrence, 1788-1874) Woodruff was appointed a Constable in the Home District for Pickering Township.17 In July 1811, he did Jury duty with his father, Jabez Lynde, Thomas Matthews (father of Peter Matthews), and others. The next year he saw service in the War of 1812, in Capt. Bigger's Company of Canadian Volunteers. Shortly thereafter he moved to the United States and lived his life out there.18
Just 2 1/2 months after Melinda married Jordan Post, her sister Elizabeth, known as Betsy Woodruff (b. 1791), married John Carr (or Kerr) of Darlington. The marriage is recorded in Belden (1878):
'Twenty-first April, 1807, John Carr, of Darlington, to Betsy Woodruff, of Pickering; with the written consent of her father. Present, Norris Carr and wife, James Burke and wife, and Mr. Woodruff's son.'19
In 1816, the Carrs purchased land in Oshawa from Jabez Lynde (Betsy's brother-in-law) and settled on it, which, according to one historian, made them 'the first bona fide settlerHawkins Harvey Woodruff in the original village of Oshawa.'20 John built a distillery and ran a tavern from his house. They sold the farm in 1829 to James Hall and moved to Pickering where John took over his brother-in-law Noadiah's tav- ern licence.21
When Jabez Lynde made a claim for his (1812) wartime expenses, affidavits were sworn by his brothers-in-law Noadiah Woodruff and John Carr.22
The youngest child of Hawkins and Lois Woodruff was Zelotes Harvey (cl796-1867), who usually went by the name of Harvey. As a lad he was one of the first students of Dr. George Okill Stuart (afterwards Archdeacon of Kingston) at the Home District School, the first public school in York (opened 1 June 1807).23 He probably lived with his aunt and uncle, Melinda and Jordan Post.
Harvey married Ann Lamoreaux (1799-1857),a member of the Loyalist Huguenot L'Amoreaux family that settled in Scarborough. They settled on Lot 18, Concession 2.24 According to the censuses of 1851 and 1861 he was a farmer by occupation and a Quaker by religious affiliation. Harvey and Ann had 11 children. Both Zelotes Harvey and his wife Ann are buried in the Woodruff Cemetery on the east side of Brock Road (opposite Centennial Park; Lot 18, Concession 2). Theirs are the only two existing stones in the cemetery. They read as follows:
'Zelotes H. Woodruff. Died Oct. 4, 1867. Aged 71 Years.'
'Annie Wife of Harvey Woodruff. Born Feb. 4, 1799. Died Aug. 6, 1857.'
The younger Hawkins Woodruff (1812-1878), son of Noadiah Woodruff and Charity Powell, was born on 16 April 1812, in Pickering. Sometime before 1837, he married Mary Tool (1817-1906), the daughter of John Tool and Catherine Wurts. Mary was born in Pine Orchard, Whitchurch Township, and moved as a child to Pickering Township. Hawkins grew up on Lot 17, Concession 2, which was his father's land, and was still living there in 1837 with his wife.25 Their first child, Elizabeth, was born there about 1837.
In 1845, Hawkins purchased 50 acres (N 1/2 of S 1/2) of Lot 17, Concession 4 from John Simcoe Macaulay, a Toronto businessman and politician. Four years later he purchased the adjacent 50 acres of Lot 18 from Chief Justice John Elmsley. It was on the latter lot, which fronts onto Brock Road, that he chose to build his home. According to the 1851 census, the Woodruffs were living in a log house, but by the 1861 census they had built a l l/2 storey stone house. That house is the one which still stands today.
The household in 1851 consisted of nine people: Hawkins, his wife Mary, and seven children ranging in ages from 14 to one. At the next census in l861,the family had grown to 12 people: Hawkins and Mary, 9 children, and a 29-year-old labourer, Adam Tool, probably a nephew of Mary's. Another son was born in October of that year. They had 12 children in all. When the 1871 census was taken, Hawkins was now 60 years old. He was still living on Lot 18, Concession 4. There were still eight people in the household—he, his wife and six children, the youngest of which was a granddaughter, Selena, age 4.
Hawkins was a farmer, according to the census reports. By religious affiliation he was a Quaker. He died on 7 June 1878 and was buried in the Friends Cemetery, Pickering Village. His wife Mary lived until 1906, and was buried beside him.
On the Tremaine Map (1860), Hawkins Woodruff's name appears across the N 1/2 of the S 1/2 of Lots 17 and 18, Concession 4. The Beers Atlas (1877) shows an A. Woodruff on Lot 18, Con 4, but this was undoubtedly a slip of the pen. The Goad Map (1895) shows a Mrs. H. Woodruff on the same property.
The Woodruff family, one of the first to settle Pickering, survived in the township for more than a century. Members of the family, serving as they did in many official capacities, may be numbered among the founders of the community. They were also related by marriage to a number of other prominent families of Scarborough, Pickering and Whitby, such as the Lyndes, Posts, Tools, and Lamoreaux. It is important for the City of Pickering that it remember and commemorate its forebears. One way to accomplish that with regard to the Woodruffs would be to preserve some remnant of their heritage—like having one of their homes designated under the Ontario Heritage Act.
