Much of the early history of the WEEKS family has been lost and what we have recorded here has come down by word of mouth, but we feel it is fairly accurate.

*********************************************************************************************************

JOESPH WEEKS married CHARITY KERN of the Forestville area. They took up a tract of land in Derham township, Oxford County, Concession 9, Lot 5, bordering Cranberry Road in 1832. To procure the deed to his property, JOESPH rode horseback to Niagara. His neighbours were Indians having a little settlement nearby. The women worked at household tasks together with CHARITY WEEKS and the men worked and hunted together. JOESPH and CHARITY raised their family of eight children here, having 7 sons and 1 daughter.

RHONDA married Mr. SLAGHT and moved to the state of Washington. JOHN, AMOS and WALTER took up land from the crown south of Tillsonburg, in Middleton township, Norfolk County; and JOESPH and ISSAC framed the homestead on the ninth concession of Dereham township, the homestead being divided into two farms.

There was an almost complete cooperation among these early settlers, and a very deep love of the land. The five brothers would fo to one farm, cut down trees, clear a spot for a log cabin, later to be replaced by a larger house and later still by a substantial brick home. Thus they went from farm to farm helping one another. There was very little money; work was done by bees - Relatives and neighbours would gather to build a house or barn, and what happy times these gatherings were. The women came along to help with the meals. Money mattered very little to those early settlers, any lack was made up by trading surplus, and theirs was a very leisured way of life. Not that they didn't work hard, - laborious work was done with only an ax and adze at first, later by hand saws, and later still cross-cut saws. These brothers were the happiest people. They were cutting a home for themselves out of the wilderness and doing it the hard way, and always with a joke and hearty laugh. Whenever there was need, helping hands were ready. in those early times, doctors were few and far between, so the mother took over in illness, and usually someone in the neighbourhood with an special knack in caring for the sick would be on call whenever needed. The doctor was seldom called except in serious illness. For the most part they were a healthy, hearty people.

Much of the land was cleared by oxen, later stumping machines and horses. Water was a very precious commodity and wells were detected by "Witching". Only certain people had the gift of witching and the early settlers firmly believed in this way of finding water. A branched twig of hickory was held firmly in the hands, stem pointing upwards and when the witcher walked over water, even deep in the ground, the stem would turn downwards. Fire was something to be dreaded if uncontrolled. Every care was taken to prevent fires from getting out of control. Wood was used for cooking and heating. A huge cast iron, square stove was used for heating. Huge pieces of wood were placed in the stove and would hold the heat through the night. They were always careful to bank the fire before going to bed, wind the clock and put out the cat.

I have just read the story of the Weeks journey from England. Our Weeks family also came from England. They land in South Africa with the british settlers in 1820. What I found very interesting is that we also have the name William in our family. One of the Weeks's that came here were named William James. I do not know very much about the history but know that in the Grahamstown museum there is quite a bit of information.
