1. ROBERT2 JOYNT (UNKNOWN1) was born 1817 in County Mayo, Ireland, and died August 20, 1894 in Lambton, Ontario, Canada (Source: Schedule of Deaths, Lambton, Ontario, Canada, Certificate no 31 also stamped 008524, Name: Robert JoyntWhen Died: August 20th, 1894Sex: MaleAge: 78 yearsRank or Profession:FarmerWhere Born: IrelandCertified Cause of death and Duration of Illness: Died suddenly without any particular troubleName of physician: No DrSignature, Description and residence of Informant:Dudley Joynt, son,Iwf sigWhen registered: October 4, 1894Religious denomination of deceased: Ch of EnglandSignature of Registrar: William Douglas.). He married MARIA CANTON in Possibly Leeds Co, Ontario, Canada. She was born 1819 in County Mayo, Ireland, and died March 04, 1892.
Notes for ROBERT JOYNT:
The two immigrated to Canada and lived on a farm in an area know as New Boyne, located between Brockville and Smith Falls in Eastern Ontario. Their entire family of eight children was born on this farm. Later they moved to the Camlachie area. There, in the 1880s Robert acquired lots of land just west of the village of Camlachie and relocated the family.
From Keith Delmage:
Exact location of property is:
East part of Lot No. 8 and the West part of Lot No. 9, Con 9 Plympton Township, Lambton Co. Province of Ontario, Canada. I understand that they moved from Leeds County in Eastern Ontario to Camlackie in the year their youngest, Charles, was born in 1862. (Leeds County is just south of Smith Falls.).
From a Short History of Christ Anglican Church in Camlachie.
Since 1877, Christ Church has stood as a testimonial to dedicated pioneers and faithful parishioners. Lord Egremont established a settlement in Errol about 1833. The Errol cemetery was the early Anglican cemetery. Family plots in 1903 were sold for $6.00; single plots for $3.00. The cemetery was closed for burials in the 1920s, but maintained by Christ Church until taken over by Plympton Twp in 1982. Early in 1877 a number of Anglicans in the growing community of Camlachie decided a Church of England was needed. Rev. Isaac Bearfoot, an Indian priest, spearheaded a group that included Joseph Kennedy, A.T. Hill, Robert Joynt and Walter Core to draw up a list of people to subscribe toward construction of the Church.
Year of birth given by family member as 1817. 1871 Census, Plympton Twp, Dist 3 page 32/33 gives age as 52 so could be born 1818-1819. 1871 census also lists all children as being born in Ireland

Joynt, who was known to suffer from heart trouble, had insisted on staying alone at the farm.

Notes by Ann Joynt Wilmarthe:
Uncle Dudley-He was gone when I visited his family. His son Justin was blond, about 20 years; and his sister Lillian who was darker complected. Black hair and wore the same georgette dress to church every Sunday, also gloves to the elbow an no hat that I can remember. Justin worked their farm. Though it was a full farm, threshing, milking,etc, he also worked in a factory in Sarnia. There were three elderly sisters, maybe Aunt Molly was Dudley's wife. The house was a lovely little white frame house. All oil lamps wherever you were. Their little parlor had a brass easle in the corner with a 2 ft. gilt edged picture on it. The lace curtains were protected by the shades drawn at all times. It was saved for company and I just had one short peak. The lawns were beautiful, we played croquet, other times we jumped in the hay, and had family reunions with lots and lots of people, food, dancing and singing.
From a short history of Christ Anglican Church in Camlachie:
The large brass offertory plate is a memorial to Dudley Joynt (1852-1924), sometime People's Warden and son of pioneer member Robert Joynt, by his wife Elva and son Justus, from whom also came the frontals for the lectern and the pulpit.
From Sarnia Observer Monday, Dec 29, 1924 p. 8:
(Special to Canadian Observer)
Camlachie, Dec 29, about one o'clock Saturday morning, after a long illness followed by a slight stroke, Dudley Joynt died at his home a half mile west of the village. Mr. Joynt was well known and highly respected in the community and was a member of Christ Anglican Church. He is survived by his widow, two daughters, Mrs. Richard Taylor of Wyoming and Mrs. J.G. Ritchie of Windsor and two sons, William and Justus at home, also three brothers survive, Robert of Detroit, John and Joseph of Plympton, and one sister, Ellen of Plympton. Funeral arrangements are not yet complete.

Notes for MARY CORE:
Possibly died of complications of childbirth since she died 10 days after birth of son, William.
Also in same burial plot is stone:
In memory of Alice, daughter of Dudley and Mary E Joynt died Jan. 13, 1885 aged 9 mos, 5 days.
This is confusing since that would have meant Alice was born March of 1885 and if William was born Oct. of 1885 then how does that happen? So who is Alice and when was she really born? Or was she twin of Wm and born in Oct?
From Forest Free Press 2 Nov 1905:
Mrs. Dudley Joynt, Camlachie, died on Oct. 28th, aged 25 years. deceased was the eldest daughter of Wm. Core, 8th line, and had been married about four years. The remains were interred at Errol. Her husband and two children survive her.

From Ann Joynt Willmarthe:
Grandpa and Grandma lived on a little street named Mulberry. It was just down the street from where I lived, it was just off Vermont, where "the shop" was, a couple blocks down. I loved being there. I loved and adored Aunt Venie. On a winter night they would bring a bowl of red apples up from the basement, Grandpa would always have a piece of round steak after dinner. He would open the door of the base burner stove and roast the little piece, (hardly a bite) on the stove holding it with a fork, and he alwasy gave me a nibble. Then he would lie down on the horse hair couch and sing Irish tunes to me and bounce me up and down. On warm days aunt Venie would give me 5c to go over to Mrs. Woods candy store to buy a bag of humbug candy. It was in a blue striped bag. Aunt Venie and I would sit in the shade of the Mulberry bush and enjoy the hot afternoon. Then Grandpa loved racing his sulkey with his horse Toledo. One night, I remember him washing his ear in the kitchen sink, all bloody from where the horse bit him. He would give us all a quarter for passing our grade, when we showed him our report card, and promised all the boys a watch if they reached 21 without smoking.
