1850’s School Days were Different to 1860’s
School days were great for all of us, but the schools days of the 1850’s and 1860’s were quite different from the school days of the 1880's and 1890's. For example the children in the 80’s and 90’s were not trounced by the teachers the way the children were in the earlier period, And the conditions were vastly different in other respects as well, especially in the country. As told by Michael McEvoy, who attended S.S no. 4 Osgoode [Herbert’s Corners School] in the late 1850’s. The children entered a cold school and stood around until the wood put into the big box stove warmed up the one-room school. The children of that period had to draw their share of wood from their homes on their little sled, and before they went home in the evening, they had to make kindling for the next morning. They had also to split wood. They also had the misfortune, [as they considered it] of having the teacher live in their humble home, usually a shanty, for varying times of the year. Where there were four or more children in a family attending the school, the teacher [as part of his pay ] stayed two weeks. Where there were or fewer, the teacher stayed one week, some times the teacher walked to school with the children and that was worse. School books were scarce and the teacher would paste the ABC card and the first book lessons on the ends of shingles and these were passed from child to child to be learned. The other end of these shingles often found its way to the side of a boys head. This was the how the teacher literally knocked things into the boy’s head. The children of the 1860’s had one advantage over the children of the present, There was no homework, with so much farm work there was no time for school homework. The children had go for cows, cut and bring in wood, draw water from the well or spring, dig potatoes, feed the pigs and horses etc. etc. But these boys and girls having had such experience and having learned valuable lessons from such a variety of work, grew up to be leaders in their communities and in places far afield. __________________________________________
Teacher Ruled by the power of Music
Even in the 1860’s there were teachers and there were teachers, most of them ruled by brute or physical force. This is a story of one who ruled by the power of music. This teacher, a Mr. Wallace who taught in s.s. no 4, was an Irishman, recently arrived from Ireland and had brought with him a “fiddle”. Mr. Wallace taught the scholars Cotillions and other popular dance music of the period. This was done at noon hours and after school. The dancing was offered as a reward of good conduct, Mr Wallace taught them the proper deportment that went with proper dancing and they proved apt pupils who were gentlemanly in their conduct. Note: Agatha Mary Wallace, daughter of Michael Wallace & Catherine Murphy, married, Nov. 27, 1898, to Michael Joseph Donovan, son of Patrick Donovan & Ellen Heafy. Son, Michael Wallace, married Catherine Diamond. _____________________________
The one-room school with wood shed and ever popular outhouse dotted the countryside in Eastern Ontario and elsewhere. On March 12,1876 Michael Herbert, his wife Ellen Nash living on the East–half Lot 15, con. 3 in [Osgoode Township,] sold one- half acre to school no 4. for the erection of a new school house. This Agreement was signed by Andrew Doyle,Patrick O’Brien, and James Herbert, [my g,grandfather]. It would seem that the present one room, frame school house is the third in the immediate area. My Grandfather, Michael Daley received his education in the log school house, situated on the South-west corner of lot 15, con. 4 as shown on the 1863 map of the Township on the property of John Turner, This school house was opened, the month of November 1844 and was known as S.S. no 4 with 68 inhabitants in this area, 28 of them enrolled in the school. The Osgoode Township Assessment sheets of the year 1841 verify in fact that John Turner was situated on the north-half of lot 15,con. 4 on which the first school opened. Who the first teacher was we may never know, but the 1861 census states the names and ages of the Turner Family, plus “ Moses Nolan” non-member, School Teacher, born Ireland, age 26 years, we do know however, that January 9, 1862 Elizabeth Turner, born Canada West in 1838, daughter of John Turner and Susan Whelan, married Moses Nolan of Ballindogin, County Wexford,Ireland in St, John’s church Enniskerry, [Osgoode] by the first resident priest, Father Thomas O’Boyle [born May 29 ,1820 Co. Mayo,Ireland] As one delves into this fascinating world of local history there are many unanswered question, like why three schools [1844 north half of lot 15, con 4. to 1876 and 1890 south east corner of lot 15 , con 3.] which leads one to that the tales that were told were true, That two students chastised by the teacher one day, left the room and promptly started a fire under the eaves creating a situation where a new building was required. ...

Township councils were first instituted 1850. Until 1852, Osgoode and Gloucester Township, as part of Russell county, formed part of the Ottawa District with the administration Centre at L'Orignal. From the year 1842, when we became part of Carleton County, we formed part of the Dalhousie District. As yet, the administration of schools by these districts is not part of our knowledge. But in 1850, the Township assumed the responsibility for Elementary Education divided the Township into 13 sections and assigned the boundaries. The first section, no. 1, address Long Island Locks, was in the north west corner of the Township. No 2 was a new section, opposite Rideau Hill Camp, and being very small, there was no building there until 1853 and the pupils had walk long distances to another school. No. 3 was Gloucester.?? No, 4. and No, 5. along the old Prescott Road had an address of West Osgoode. No. 6. the Allen School was being built in 1851-2. No. 7 at first called Blair's school, later "The Stone School" opened in 1852. Spring Hill was in operation in 1838. Probably the log church built in that year was in use as a school, because, when Rev. Lochead arrived in 1845, a new log school was erected across the road on the McNeil Lot. The Swale school, No.9 was on the south west corner of Peter McFaul's lot - the most southerly of the Osgoode schools and one of the best known because of disputes over its position and the extent of its boundaries. No. 10 began in 1850, No, 11, Metcalfe, in 1838, perhaps in a private home, since a log school was built in 1848. No. 12 "The Scotch School ", had the greatest number of children in the area. Schooling began first in 1835, shortly after the immigrants arrived. The log school was erected in 1847, No.13 was York's erected in 1839-40. ... Michael Daley

December 4, 2010: Hello, I am interested in locating a one-room schoolhouse that I attended in the Metcalf area in 1960. A two-room school was built beside it and it was closed the next year. It was called SS#7 at that time. The one room schoolhouse was a short feature with the National Film Board that year because of its Christmas Concert. My family participated in that and I have the stills from it. It does show the stone school but did not give its location. Was wondering if you know anything about it? Thanks for any information that you may send along, _________________________________ Thanks to Michael Daley for the following reply and for the photograph ... Al Hi there, that one room [stone school] was torn down and a house is built on the lot where the stone school once stood. My mother and her brothers went to that stone school. The two-room school you mentioned is now a dentist office, situated on Highway 31, [now called Bank Street] half-way between Greely and Metcalfe corner. hope this helps, ...Michael Daley
