|Note||First, refer to Vol. 4, Obituaries from Ontario's Christian Guardian, 1861-1870, Global Heritage Press, 2011, page 270. In considering the following obituary, note that,with such information as we can find, Codrington Edmund Baynes-Reed, the son of Edmund Baynes-Reed, was born in 1865.|
Reid, Codrington Baynes, - On Sat., 1st Inst., as two young men, one named Codrington Baynes Reid, student at law, the other, Edward Thomas, book keeper for Messrs. Gooderham, were skating on Toronto Bay, the ice gave way, and they were drowned. Mr. Thomas leaves a wife and an infant. - March 12, 1862, p. 43
As it turns out, there is a bit more to work with.
First, the 1861 census taken at London, Canada West:
In the home of James and Eliza Griffiths, both born England, there are two law students residing, E.B. Reed and C.A.B. Reed.
Second, the London and Middlesex Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society did a transcription of Old St. Paul's Cemetery at Rectory and Dundas Streets in London. This shows that a half plot was purchased, apparently for one grave, by Edmund Baynes Reed. Herein was buried on 5 March, 1862, Reed, Codrington A.B., age 21-1/2, law student, residence London.
From this, we must believe that Codrington, son of Edmund Baynes-Reed, was named after his deceased uncle.
Codrington E. Baynes-Reed died 20 January, 1939, and is buried in St. John's Norway Cemetery, Kingston Rd., Toronto. This information is taken from a transcription of St. John's Norway by the Toronto Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society and also from his death registration which is found on MS935 reel 6, 1939 deaths (Archives of Ontario):
Death reg. 001032-39 Toronto York Co.
Codrington Edmund Baynes-Reed died 20th, 1939. Place of death, York County, York Township, Toronto, Kingston Rd 156.
Married, born London, Ont., on October 19, 1859, age 73. At place of death life(?)
Father Edmund Baynes-Reed, born Canada, and Margaret Lawrason, born Ontario.
Informant Canon Baynes-Reed, 156 Kingston Rd., brother.
Buried St. John's Cemetery, Jan. 23/39
Codrington's year of birth in the above death registration, 1859, is obviously in error. Old census information suggests that he was born in 1865; the 1911 census dates his birth to October of 1865; his gravestone dates his birth to 1865.
He is buried with his wife as well as with his brother and sister-in-law. The transcription reads:
Codrington Edmund Baynes-Reed/Oct 19, 1865 - Jan 20, 1939
An obituary for William Leonard Baynes-Reed, which appeared on page 5 of the January 28th, 1939 edition of the Globe and Mail, Toronto, stated that Codrington had lived with his brother for the last 14 years of his life.
