William Jewel(l) was born in Upper Canada in 1812/13. This date is consistent through all censuses and his death certificate. In 1843, he bought 100 acres in North Gwillimbury, which he farmed for 35 years with Henry Jewell (probably younger brother). By 1843, he had married Hestor Sedore and the first four of eleven children had been born. He died in Cheboygan Michigan.

The big question: where was he for the first 30 years of his life. Before the Cornish Jewells of England started settling in the 1840's, there was very few Jewells in Upper Canada. As far as we know, he is not related to the Norfolk Jewells. He may be related to Lorenzo Jewell (Prince Edward County). We have traced his wife's family back through Eastern Ontario, and have found no records for Jewell. Does anyone have an early 1800's Jewell anywhere in their family?
