(via Goulbourn Township Historical Society)

Come and be entertained by Brian Hull our guest speaker as he regales us with stories about his great-great-great-grandfather Nicholas Sparks.

Sparks was born in 1794 and arrived in Wrightville (Hull-Gatineau) 201 years ago from Wexford, Ireland. He began working for Philemon Wright at £50 per year. He very quickly became a property owner and landlord in Bytown and owned most of the lands in the present day commercial core of Ottawa. He died here in 1862 and was buried in St. James Anglican Church Cemetery, Hull.

Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 1:30pm at the Ottawa Public Library – Stittsville Branch, 1637 Stittsville Main Street Ottawa, ON, K2S Canada (map)
