  • Notes 
    • The 1881 census lists his occupation as a currier (def: One who dresses the coat of a horse with a curry comb; one who tanned leather by incorporating oil or grease) He's probably working at the Newton Tannery in Elgin Mills at the time of the census.

      1892 a John Brydon is a Richmond Hill town councillor.

      1900, in December, a John Brydon is elected auditor of the Richmond Hill Curling Club.

      1901, He's on the managing board of the Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church along with an A. Newton, probably his first cousin, Andrew Newton.

      1901, The census lists him living in Richmond Hill and earning 450 dollars a year as a clerk (I think the word ' copier' was written then crossed out) he'd been at that job 12 months.

      1902, January, he is elected treasurer of the Richmond Hill Fire Brigade.

      1911 census lists him as being a tanner. Household consists of him, Sarah and daughter Beulah.

      1915, His only son, Newton, dies.

      1926, He suffers a severe illness (according to his obit in the Globe and Mail).

      1931, John and Sarah Brydon move to 29 Cranbrooke Avenue. Its on a 25x110 lot, transfered from W.P. Neale for $7,950. Toronto Star, Feb 16.

      In 1936 Sarah dies on the day of John's birthday. John dies four days later.
