Berwick Hall, was once the home of John R. Barber (1880-1904). It is now an apartment building at the corner of Main Street and Park Avenue. The building was designed by E. J. Lennox, a well know Toronto architect who also designed Toronto’s old City had and Casaloma.
William Bell and Jane McDowell were residents of this area and this is where they would have their children. This week I will feature Hugh Bell, William James Bell, and Robert John Bell, the first three of their children. Next week will be Nathaniel Bell, Joseph Bell and Esther Bell. All but Esther are William and Jane's children. Esther is from William's second marriage to Catherine Bovell.
