Family record compiled by Sadie Pringle, ca 1920: "With Timothy Pringle and Huldah, besides their children, there came to Canada his mother, Deborah Pringle. She lived until 1790 and was buried at Hay Bay where other ancestors were buried later. There was a stone standing in October 1859 bearing the inscription, "Deborah Pringle, Died 1790 Aged 65-8-18"
These United Empire Loyalists were among the first to come up the St. Lawrence River - 1783-84. They were settled in the 3rd Township of Fredericksborough in the fall of 1783 as the birth of the twins who died, shows.
Timothy Pringle was entitled to 500 acres of land in Canada, but seems to have lived on the two pieces in Lennox - Addington only. First on the land in the 3rd Township then moving to the 5th Township or Maryborough around 1790. This was the mother's home as late as 1801. At that date - 10 August 1801, a deed for 300 acres of land in Whitby being Lots 17 & 18 in the 8th Concession was issued to Huldah Pringle on account of a claim due by the government to her husband who was a sergeant in the King's Rangers.
