I searched Canadian Genealogy Index (at Ancestry.com), and got reference to book Redcoated Ploughboys.  I found entry for Francis J. Pringle (soldier in War of 1812), and his daughter Matilda Pringle (both of them my ancestors).  Along with Matilda on page 20, found reference to entries for her younger siblings and their mother (Revah Pringle) also on page 20.  But the entries for Francis are on other pages (but strangely, not page 20).  Below are entries for Francis and daughter Matilda.

Anyway, would this book have other information on these children, or would it just be a list of children?

Note: The province and county are associated with the location of the record source and in some cases may not be the same as the place where the event occured.
