Use of Force at Titan Tactical Marty and Gavin
Story Time with Tim
Samuel Lount was born Sept 24, 1791 in Catawissa Pennsylvania.
In 1815 he married Elizabeth Soules and the couple would eventually have 7 children. The Lounts came to Upper Canada in 1818 and settled first in Newmarket where Samuel kept a tavern.
He, his father and his brother were capable woodsmen and worked extensibly on the survey of the counties of West Gwillimbury, Tecumseh and Innisfil becoming great land owners. The Lounts moved to Whitchurch and then settled in Holland Landing in 1822.
Samuel was primarily a blacksmith and was involved in the construction of the Sir John Colborne, the first steamboat on Lake Simcoe.
An extremely generous man, Lount was sought out by many who immigrated to the Lake Simcoe region. He provided advice and assistance without thought of compensation and became one of the most highly respected settlers in the area. This stature led to offers of public office and requests that he become a candidate for the House of Assembly, but Lount preferred to remain in the background. When asked to run for the assembly in 1828 he declined.
In 1834 Lount was persuaded to run for Simcoe County and was successful. With his strong concern for his fellow man, he gravitated to the reformers and became a friend and ally of William Lyon Mackenzie*. In the election of 1836 Lount was defeated by William Benjamin Robinson*, who was assisted by what the reformers felt were corrupt practices on the part of the provincial executive, and he became disillusioned with normal political processes.
In July 1837, just after the death of King William IV, William Lyon Mackenzie began organizing a “constitutional convention.” Delegates would be selected by Reform associations around the province, who would meet to defend Upper Canada’s constitution. The Tories refused to call an election after the death of the king, as the constitution required, making the Tory dominated House of Assembly illegal. At a meeting held in Newmarket in August, Samuel Lount, Samuel Hughes, Nelson Gorham, Silas Fletcher, Jeremiah Graham and John McIntosh were selected as delegates. All but Hughes and McIntosh were among the primary organizers of the rebel farmers who were to march on the city of Toronto on 7 December 1837. Lount organized the volunteers from the Children of Peace community in Sharon to join a planned march on Toronto and joined the rebel group gathered at Montgomery’s Tavern.
Lount, who had no military background, was assigned the rank of Colonel. Because of his popularity in the area south of Lake Simcoe, Lount had little difficulty attracting neighbours to the rebel cause. When called to arms on December 4th, 1837, Lount and some ninety men struck out for Toronto. After a hard march of 30 miles they arrived hungry and exhausted at Montgomery’s Tavern where they joined other rebels armed with pikes, poles and a few rifles. They could only take the captial by surprise and that chance was rapidly slipping away from them.
For two days while as series of tragic accidents, comic terrors and fatal debates over grand strategy paralyzed the rebel movements, the provincial militia was pouring into the capital. Late on Monday, December 4th Alderman John Powell burst breathlessly into the bedchamber of Lieutenant Governor Francis Bond Head. Waking Sir Francis, Powell informed him of the outbreak of rebellion in Upper Canada. The citizens of Toronto frantically prepared for the anticipated rebel onslaught. In actual fact the few hundred untrained, inexperienced and dispirited farmers assembling as Mongomery’s Tavern could only have taken the capital by surprise, a slight chance that was rapidly slipping away from them.
On December 7 the loyalist army that included a well-armed Head under Colonel Fitzgibbon marched up Yonge Street to scatter the enemy. Meanwhile the Mackenzie’s ill-armed, motley crew trudged down Yonge Street to attack the capital. Those with rifles marched in the forefront and behind them came the pikemen. Bringing up the rear were the rest of the rag-tag rustics bearing poles, sticks and staves. All were bundled against the bitter cold in ill-fitting homespun.
Within half a mile of the city,(not far from where Maple Leaf Gardens is today) shots were fired at the rebels by an advance guard of Loyalist militiamen, who then took off for Toronto. Rebel riflemen in the front rank returned the fire, then they dropped to their knees to reload. Those in the rear heard the roar of rifles and then to their horror saw the front rank disappear. Fearing they had all been felled by a fusillade, they panicked and ran. Similar kinds of chaos characterized the remainder of the rebellion and within days, Mackenzie and his men had scattered to the four winds with Head and his hunters in hot pursuit. It was all over in less than half an hour.
The following notice appeared in the local press.
500 Pounds For S. Lount
A tall man, say six feet or rather more, long face, Sallow complexion – black hair with some grey in it – very heavy, dark eyebrows, speaks rather softly.
When the rebellion fell apart, Lount attempted to flee to the United States, but was arrested and accused of treason. Despite a petition signed by 35,000 Upper Canadians demanding clemency, Lount was hanged on April 12, 1838 in the courtyard of the King Street Gaol at King and Toronto Streets in Toronto. Joseph Sheard was the foreman for the jail and was expected to share in the work of building the scaffold. However, he refused saying, ‘I’ll not put a hand to it,’ said he; ‘Lount and Matthews have done nothing that I might not have done myself, and I’ll never help build a gallows to hang them.” Peter Matthews, another public-spirited farmer who participated in the rebellion, was executed alongside him.
Lount’s last words were recorded: “Be of good courage boys, I am not ashamed of anything I’ve done, I trust in God, and I’m going to die like a man.” These words are replicated on a historical plaque near the site of the jail where he was executed.
