In July of 1797 Henry Climenhagen petitioned for lands in Upper Canada and was granted two hundred acres of land in Willoughby Township (Lots 6 & 7, cross-concession).[1] This land is on Baker rd. to the West of Sodom rd. According to an 1811 land deed map of Willoughby Township these lands were bordered to the West by Martin Beam, to the North by the Shoup brothers Martin and Christian, to the East by Joshua Fairbanks, and to the south by the lands of John Sherk. In 1825, these lands were subsequently willed to Henry’s oldest and youngest children, with Anna (Climenhaga) Sider being given Lot 6[2] and Moses Glimanhaga lot 7, respectively.[3] In 1828 Moses sold his 100-acres to Elizabeth Shoup, daughter of Christian Shoup, for ₤32 and relocated to Whitechurch Township near Markham, Ontario.[4] Anna and husband John Sider sold Lot 7 in 1849 to Gabriel Morningstar for ₤125.[5]

In 1799, Henry Climenhagen purchased 300 acres of land in Bertie Township from Parshall Terry, an ex-Butler’s Ranger.[6] In 1825 these lands were willed to Henry’s middle children with Martin Climenhage/a receiving land on Lot 13, Concession 10,[7] and Abraham Climenhegg receiving land on Lot 13 Concession 9.[8] These lands are located on Eagle Street in Stevensville.  Upon Martin’s death in 1876, his land, bordered by Winger road and Sider road, was given to his surviving sons David Climenhaga and Moses Climenhage, whereupon David received from the west half of Black Creek, and Moses the east half. David’s land was subsequently passed down through three generations of his family. Abraham’s land lay to the East of Sider road. Abraham died quite young (age 35) and his land passed to his eldest son Nathaniel who sold the land off in pieces until he relocated with his family to Middlesex County, Ontario in the early 1850s.

Henry’s middle son, Henry Climenhage/a junior, was given land on Lot 14, Concession 11 in Stevensville[9]—land which borders Stevensville road and College Road. This land was later sold in 1836 and 1838 to John Pickhart.[10][11]
