Old Fort Erie - Officers Quarters

Old Fort Erie - Officers Quarters

The canopied folding bed made of mahogany with brass hinges in the Officer's Quarters belonged to Captain Nicholas (Michael) Toler Kingsley, Paymaster to the Kings 8th Regiment Foot. Originally from Ireland, he joined the 8th Foot Regiment 24 December 1802 and was stationed at Quebec City, Lower Canada. (His Majesty's Gentlemen: A Directory of Regular British Army Officers of the War of 1812. Sutherland, 2001)

During the War of 1812 with United States, Nicholas was stationed at Fort George (Niagara-on-the-Lake) and later at the Fort George Blockade. He died of fever 15 Sept 1813 at the Four Mile Creek encampment (Fort George Blockade). His bed was returned to his wife Susan, in Quebec City. Captain Nicholas and Susan Kingsley had three children: Edwin, Sarah Anne and George. George Kingsley is my Great, great, great Grandfather.

During the 1920's, the burying ground in which Nicholas Kingsley was interred was abandoned, and the remains of Nicholas and other members of his regiment were dug up. Nicholas was identified by the buttons and numbers on the uniform. News of this was published in the Toronto papers. Upon receipt of this news, a family member, Franklin Hardinge, located the folding bed. It was given for safekeeping to the Government of Canada and was eventually placed at Old Fort Erie.
