NARRATIVE:On 23 June 1801, Hepsabet was granted 200 acres of land in King Township of the Home District. The land comprised lot 12 of the 3rd concession. Hepsabet was residing in York (now Toronto) with her husband, Caleb, at the time of the order. This is the land she likely received for the service of her father, Ephraim Wheeler, as a Loyalist to the Crown during the American Revolution.1
