Note: Fairley Milne was a Protestant from Scotland. The recent immigrants from Great Britain brought the Protestant vs Catholic fight to Ontario when they immigrated. As the lands of Ontario called the Queen's Bush opened opened up in the midcentury, evidently there was a movement to keep the area free of Catholic immigrants. Evidently Fairley was not prepared to go along with this and shared his home and food with Catholic neighbors. A public cowardly reprimand against him was circulated but Fairley received support from the Catholic press. A Catholic paper in 1858 printed the public statement from a Protestant "Friend".

Note

Copied from Guelph Weekly Mercury, June 13, 1907:

"Lot 3 Concession 1 was early settled by John Milne. Here also for some years lived Fairly Milne, on lot 4, who was one of the first trustees of the Elora school. He sold out and settled in Howick Township. At an early date lot 3 was owned by George and James Leslie and lot 4 by William Gibbon. They are now the properties of Alex Glennie and James McLeod, whose father, the late John McLeod, purchased lot 4 in1855 and lived on it until his unfortunate death by lightning in 1896."
