The Search for John Bostwick

John Bostwick DVD cover image


In 1804, John Bostwick received a large land grant on the east side of Kettle Creek and founded a small settlement which was destined to grow into the village of Port Stanley. He settled in the area in about 1817 and played an important role in the early development of the little village.

But who was John Bostwick? Where did he come from, and how did he happen to receive a grant of land at the mouth of Kettle Creek? Where did he live and exactly what role did he play in the early development of Port Stanley? Who were his family members? Was he active in the war of 1812? Was he charging too much for his land? What can we say about his business acumen?

All these questions will be fully discussed in this fascinating video produced and narrated by Craig and Margi Cole.

Running time: 54 minutes.
