Notes

Shared Note

During the War of 1812, he enlisted as a private in Captain Abraham Rapelje's Company in the Incorporated Militia, and on July 24, 1814 fought in the Battle of Lundy's Lane. His older brother John H. was also present during this battle, serving in the 1st Norfolk Rifle Company. The 'Incorporates' were quartered at Fort York, now within Toronto, until the spring of 1815. It was probably here that Anthony met his wife Elizabeth Taylor. They were married in 1816 at St. James Cathedral in York by Bishop John Strachan . As a reward for his service, Anthony received 100 acres of land in Bayham Township, Elgin County where the rest of his family settled. This land was sold in 1824 to Samuel Edison, and they went to live in York County. Several children were born before 1837.
At this time, political unrest in Upper and Lower Canada resulted in the short lived Rebellion of 1837. Anthony, having some military experience, helped to train the rebels from the north of York County and was one of the party who advanced on the city to join MacKenzie. Anderson and Sheppard took two prisoners, and while escorting them to their camp, the captive John Powell drew a gun and shot Anthony in the back. He died instantly, and some said his death was the defeat of the rebels. Anthony was buried in a tavern courtyard in what is now downtown Toronto, no memorial stone was placed. Besides a wife and eight young children. Captain Anthony Anderson left a reputation for courage and kindness which was a legend in the neighbourhood long before 1837." --Lori June Cox Mifsud
