Generation No. 2

2. RODERICK2 MACKENZIE (JOHN1) was born 1825 in Kintail, Scotland, and died January 20, 1897 in Victoria West, PEI, Canada. He married CATHERINE MACLEOD April 22, 1846. She was born January 01, 1823, and died 1911 in PEI, Canada.

Notes for RODERICK MACKENZIE: An indenture dated May 26, 1864 between Roderick MacKenzie and Dame Louisa Augusta Wood states that Roderick Mackenzie leased approximately 100 acres of land in lot 67 , parcel 61 for the yearly rent of 5 pounds, eleven shillings and two pence. The parcel is described as: "by a line commencing at stake placed in the north side of the Anderson's Road at the southwest angle of fifty acres now or lately held by Donald Matheson. It runs thence north one hundred and one and a half chains to the Road,....aforesaid, and thence following the side of the Road Easterly to the place of common ?, the said courses being according to the Magnetic variation of the year one thousand and seven hundred and sixty four (1764) agreeably to a plan of the said premises in the margin of those ?." Rent is to be paid yearly on the first day of January to Dame Louisa Augusta Wood, her Heirs or Assigns, or to her attorney at a place appointed by her attorney. The first due date for rent was January 1, 1865. Roderick was also required to pay the land tax and all manner of taxes, assessments and impositions whatsoever, parliamentary or otherwise.

This document was signed by Roderick MacKenzie and witnessed by Charles Wright, Dame Louisa Augusta's attorney. It was notarized by Allan Bethune. On the face page of the original indenture there is written the name of one Duncan MacKenzie dated December 30, 1882, stated as a deed. The 1880 Prince Edward Island Atlas shows Duncan MacKenzie living on this parcel of land at that time. Roderick MacKenzie is listed as living on this land prior to May 26, 1864.

Regarding the proprietor of the land leased by Roderick MacKenzie in Lot 67, Rose Valley/Springton, PEI, Canada: Lady Louisa Augusta Wood was the daughter of General Edmund Fanning, Lieutenant Governor of PEI from 1786-1805 and Phoebe Maria Burns. She lived on PEI during her childhood and moved to England with her family ca 1805. Louisa was married at Ealing, County of Middlesex, England 28 June 1830, to Sir Gabriel Wood, a General in the English Army. She died in Bath, England on 19 March, 1872. Lady Wood and her two sisters, Mariah Susanna Matilda and Margaret William Tryon inherited land on PEI from their father.

The following is taken from the Abegweit Revue page 53 - Fall 1990, Volume 6, Number 2.

"Governor Fanning, who was Lieutenant-Governor of PEI from 1786-1804 willed most of his land to his 2 daughters. Governor Fanning apparently became interested in the plight of the MicMac Indians.

According to Judge Arsenault's memoirs, one of the daughters married a Colonel Wood of England (Sir Gabriel Wood). Dame Louisa Augusta Wood, as a young girl resided here with her father and evidently became interested in the MicMac Indians of PEI. By her last will and testament, bearing the date May 5th, 1870, she gave to trustees appointed by her, 2,573 acres of land on lot or township 67 in Queen's County, to be sold and the proceeds held in trust, one half for the education of the deaf and dumb and the other half for the Indians of PEI."

Note: from Helen Craswell from whom this information was derived: "My family found an indenture made between Sir Gabriel Wood and his consort Lady Louisa Augusta Wood and James Orr, signed on April 10, 1837. The document was witnessed by Maria Matilda Fanning. A portion of this property was later purchased by my ancestor, James Miller Stevenson of lot 67 and the document was found in a tin box in the attic of his Grandson a number of years ago."

3. MURDOCH3 MACKENZIE? (RODERICK2 MACKENZIE, JOHN1) was born Bet. 1844 - 1849 in Lot 67, PEI, Canada?, and died Abt. 1893. He married MARY J. (MAREY) MACLEOD 1871, daughter of MALCOLM MACLEOD and MARY MACLEOD. She was born Bet. 1844 - 1854, and died Abt. 1891.

Notes for MURDOCH MACKENZIE?: There is a question whether Murdoch is a child of Roderick MacKenzie and Catherine MacLeod. Birth records have been found stating he was born October 10, 1847 and baptized October 11, 1847, it is believed in Breadalbane United Church, lot 67. Other individuals believe he was born in 1844 in Edinburgh, Scotland (per a family bible) or 1849 on PEI, Canada. The same confusion rests with his wife's birth place and time (1844 or 1854 in Victoria West, PEI, Canada or Edinburgh Scotland). The family possesses a photo of Mary J. MacKenzie, believed to be his wife, Mary J. MacLeod. Mary J. MacLeod's sister Catherine MacLeod, married Alexander MacKenzie (?brother of Murdoch and potentially of Duncan MacKenzie (1844-1933 of Springton, PEI) and moved to Woodbine and Logan, Iowa, USA. There is also confusion as to cause of death for both Mary J. and Murdoch. Mary J. is stated to either have died of a 2 month illness or in a carriage accident. Murdoch is stated to either have died in a lumber (explosives) accident or from stomach cancer, both in the early to mid-1890's.

Notes for WALTER RUSSELL SHAW: Walter Russell Shaw was born on December 20, 1887 at West River on the farm originally settled by his Great Grandfather in 1806. He received his early education at Prince of Wales College in Charlottetown, went on to the Nova Scotia Agricultural College at Truro and completed his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture at the University of Toronto. Following his university education, he returned to his native province and entered the farming industry where he earned a reputation as a livestock breeder. He showed outstanding ability as a livestock judge, particularly in the horse ring.

Walter Shaw joined the Provincial Government of Agriculture and served in many capacities including Deputy Minister from 1934-1954. During his tenure of service, practically every reform and improvement in island agriculture was influenced and launched under his direction. One outstanding program was Bovine Tuberculosis testing but mention must be made of his work with junior farmers and the Rural Youth Training program.

He was responsible for the launching of the Prince Edward Island Federation of Agriculture and served as its general Secretary as well as a Director of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture. He established the Agricultural Council of the province and was instrumental in organizing the Rural Development Council.

He entered politics in 1957 when he was named leader of the Progressive Conservative Legislature. He fought and won the General Election in 1959, carrying 22 of the 30 seats in the Provincial Legislature. He was then 71 years of age and it marked the first time in Canada that a past civil servant had won such a single victory. With his election in 1959, he became the 22nd Premier of Prince Edward Island, a post he held until 1966. He retired from politics, personally undefeated in 1970.

During Premier Shaw's administration, expansion was undertaken in many fields, including the food processing industry, the Regional High School system, the building of a new Provincial Administration Building, and a revamping of salary and employment conditions in the Provincial Civil Service.

During his lifetime Walter Shaw received many honours. He was decorated by Royalty on three occasions, a Jubilee Medal in 1935, a M.B.E. and Citation in 1950 and a Coronation Medal.
