    WILLIAM PLANT, a veteran terra cotta and brick maker, of Toronto, and one of the oldest in the business in that city, was born in 1824, in Staffordshire, England, son of James and Lucy (Pearson) Plant, the former born about 1784, and the latter in 1786. James Plant died in England aged about forty years, from the effects of heavy lifting, his widow surviving him until 1866.

    William Plant grew to manhood and received his education in his native land, there learning the terra cotta and brick-making business, in which he engaged when twenty years of age. In 1863 he came to Canada and settled in Toronto, where for a short time he worked for Thomas Nightingale, a brickmaker of the Queen City, but the following year he embarked in the manufacture of terra cotta on his own account, his plant being located at Yorkville. After continuing here for some time, Mr. Plant removed to the grounds now occupied by the Western Cattle Market, where he engaged in brickmaking for two years, then purchasing twenty-two acre of land on Wells Hill, where he continued in business for twelve years. He then sold out his business and purchased 240 acres of land at Niagara Falls, where five or six years were spent, at the end of which time Mr. Plant returned to Toronto, and now resides at No. 13 Fisher street.

    In 1844 Mr. Plant was married to Miss Sarah Whitehouse, born at Albury, England, in 1825, who died in Toronto in 1900. She was a woman of sweet disposition and an exemplary Christian character, influencing for good all who met her. She was a daughter of Stephen and Harriet (Franks) Whitehouse, who settled in Canada in 1863, Mr. Whitehouse being a brick-maker who will be remembered by many of the early settlers of Toronto. To Mr. and Mrs. Plant were born the following children : Harriet, who married James Waword, of Muskoka, and has six sons and three daughters ; James, a well-known brickmaker of New York State, who received the gold medal for terra cotta work at the World s Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893, and who married Sarah Edwards, and has three children, James, L and Louise ; and Lucy, wife of William Rankin, a well-known business man of Toronto, and the mother of one child, Annie, who holds the degree of B.A. from the University of Toronto, and is well known in literary circles in Canada and the United States.

    Mrs. Plant died in the faith of the Presbyterian Church, to which her husband also adheres. In political matters he has always been
    a Reformer.
