Certainly Alexander Joseph Wolff was in Canada by 1818. He served in the Spanish Pennisular War after which he was demobilised and sent to Ireland and then to Canada. The document of his sons baptism at the garrison is witnessed by John Forster Fitzgerald, from County Clare, Ireland, and his wife Charlotte Hazen, who was a daughter of William Hazen, an early settler of St, John, New Brunswick. I believe that Alexander Wolff had been adopted by the Fitzgerald family. Sir John Forster Fitzgerald served in the Penninsular War, was transfered to Canada and later left Quebec for India and became Field Marshall and British M,P. There is a possibility that Alexander Joseph Wolff was in Canada before these dates, since both the the Fitzgerald and Abercromby families had close ties to the "colonies

To see A Wolffs land grant deed try google "Quebec-An Old Seignorial Deed". Here is an article dated 1903-"As we approached what is known as the settlement (the village proper), we passed the site of the Wolff homestead, which is only indicated now by a clump of lilacs. Here in 1824, Adjutant Alexander Joseph Wolff, late of the 60th Regiment, settled with his family. He brought with him a number of the rank and file of the 6Oth Regiment, who had served with him in Egypt and in the Peninsula " and "Lt. Col AJ Wolff Commanding llth Bn Quebec Militia obtained a grant of land which was "excessively rocky and swampy" so makes application for land on 5th Concession "near him". 100 acres for each of six children on March 1828. Hannah later lived in Valcartier with her son who became Mayor.

Dr. JJF Wolff·s (he was a military surgeon) wife,Isabel, was born near Newcastle, England.As such she was British. He was born in Lower Canada. Their children would not be regarded as immigrants. The Wolffs for several generations listed their origins as either English or German. Nonetheless, anyone born in Canada was considered a British Subject. JJF Wolff served at the Grosse Ile quarantine station so several of his children were born or registered there (but not because they were immigrants). Hannah Wolff lived with her husband, Lt. Col. Alexander J. Wolff. He served at the Quebec Citadel but had land granted to him in Templeton (Ontario) and St. Gabriel de Valcartier. Hannah lived in Valcartier. There are several historical documents including the land grant deed. More details later.

Military Garrison in Valcartier Québec

garrison - Dictionary Definition : A garrison most often refers to a military outpost where troops are stationed to provide protection to an area. The word garrison is also used to refer to the troops stationed there.

Garrison (various spellings) (from the French garnison, itself from the verb garnir, "to equip") is the collective term for a body of troops stationed in a particular location, originally to guard it, but now often simply using it as a home base. The garrison is usually in a city, town, fort, castle, ship or similar. "Garrison town" is a common expression for any town that has a military base nearby.

Hi Shirley,

There are 60 photographs of the Sparks-Wolff family at the National Archives. Only 4 of them say who the person is on the photo. I am wondering if you have seen them and are able to identify any of them. I am researching the pioneer families of Overbrook and thought you might have information that would be pertinent and interesting for someone like me who is interested in the history of Overbrook. For instance, do you which member (s) of the Wolff family used to live at 26 Stevens St., just a stone's throw away from the original Sparks stone house at Ontario and Marguerite St. where I believe, Eric Wolff lived? Regards,

Hi Shirley. Thanks for using WikiTree. The site is still relatively young so my programming partner and I are constantly working on improvements. Do you have any questions, comments, or suggestions? Let me know on my board or at chris --at-- anytime you do. Chris
