Joseph Lancaster, the youngest son,married Lois Nichols of Pennsylvania Dutch. They lived in Oxford County.He taught school for a time then qualified for a Doctor. When his father
died, he inherited a farm of about two hundred acres of land. He practised
as a Doctor in that district for sometime, but being among relatives he
didn't get pay for services so decided to go to another place. Some
relatives had gone to Middlesex County. He rented the farm, then with his
wife and son Thomas, he moved to a small village by the name of Lambeth,
then built a house and lived there for some years. He had a successful
practice. They had a family of four sons and three daughters. His wife, Lois
died. His mother-in-law, Mrs. Nichols, then a widow, lived with him and
cared for his family. The sons then grown up and ready to go out for
themselves; Thomas, a farmer, stayed at home; William Harvey married and
went to Kansas later; David Henry chose to be a Doctor; Joseph Jr. died
young and not yet married.

Doctor Lancaster, then married again, settled in London, then a
small city about eight miles from Lambeth. There he had a large practice in
the city and country. The daughters lived with their father.

5 "George and Jane had nine children and it is from this couple that all the Hyde Park Routledges descend" [London Twp book] Summers, Jane (I1672)
6 "In [November 1813] a millwright named Timothy Kilbourn, son of Joseph Kilbourn Sr., took charge of Amos McNames' vacant location on the northern part of lot 38 in the first concession. Prior to this Kilbourn was apparently living with his father on lot 50, concession A....In 1817 Kilbourn petitioned for lot 38 on which there were now 11 acres of cleared land and a house. Fortunately for him the lot was unencumbered and on June 20, 1818 he received the patent for the north half. Kilbourn's brother, Benjamin later purchased this farm on July 15, 1837 for  Kilbourn, Benjamin (I565)
7 "The other war-time squatter was James McNames, who was born in New York State in 1792. In 1804 he and his family immigrated to Upper Canada and lived on a reserved lot in Oxford Township. McNames bought Orrison Gillet's improvements on the southern part of lot 37, first concession, in October 1814 for $150, and shortly afterwards Gillet returned to the United States. In the spring of 1815 McNames moved his family onto the lot and over the next year cleared five acres of land in addition to the seven already improved. Then, on January 29, 1816, Sykes Tousley was allowed a large location in Westminster including the old location of Orrison Gillet, now, of course, occupied by McNames. As far as the government was concerned the lot was still located in Gillet's name and since he had returned to the United States, it was considered forfeited and located to Tousley. In March McNames brought the matter to the government's attention and it was later decided that McNames should be recommended for a grant of the north half of the lot, leaving the south half to Tousley. McNames accepted the government's decision and on March 5, 1817 he paid the necessary fees. Two years later, on December 18, 1819, he received his patent for the land, which he eventually sold on January 17, 1840 to Thomas Summers.
