E. W. SCANE, who departed this life April 1, 1902, was a leading barrister of Chatham, County of Kent, and his death removed from that city not only one of the oldest members of the Bar, but also one of her most prominent citizens and highly esteemed Christian gentlemen.
Mr. Scane was descended from English ancestry in both paternal and maternal lines. The first member of this family, concerning whom any definite data are obtainable, is Thomas Scane, the grandfather of E. W., who was born in England about the year 1765, and there married, his wife being also a native of England. Some time afterward he came to Ontario, and settled near St. Thomas (where his wife died) in the year 1820. In the year 1822 he moved to Howard township, County of Kent, settling on a farm where he spent the remainder of his life, dying in 1845. Politically he was a Conservative. To Thomas Scane and his wife were born the following children: Ellen, who died in England; Jane, who died in Ontario; Betsy, who died in Ridgetown; and two sons, John and Thomas, both of whom came to Ontario with their father, and settled in Howard township, where Thomas died in 1871, leaving two sons, Henry and Thomas, and three daughters, Jane, Ellen (deceased) and Betsy Ann. Of these Henry is now deceased, and Thomas still resides in Howard township.
John Scane, son of Thomas, and the father of E. W. Scane, was born in England in 1800 and came to Ontario about the same time his father emigrated. He settled on a farm in Howard township, County of Kent, now owned by James Scane, his son. John Scane married in 1822, Miss Elizabeth Mitton, who was born in England in 1798, and they became the parents of nine sons and two daughters, four sons dying in infancy. We have the following record of the others: (i) John, born in 1824, died in 1901 he married Catherine Marsh, by whom he had three children:
Charles W., unmarried, who resides in Howard township; Harry, who married Addie Scarlett, and also lives in Howard township; and Elizabeth Alice, wife of J. Hamil. (2) James, born in 1826, married Jane Spence, and lives in Howard township. (3) Joseph, born in 1829, married Harriet Spence, and lived in Howard township until his death, in January, 1902. They had nine daughters, Alice, Ellen and Jane (who died in infancy), Louisa, Minnie, Mabel, Annie, Maud and Ethel and three sons, George and John (who died in infancy) and James, a farmer of Howard, who married a Miss McDonald. Louisa married William Thorold, and lives in Ridge-town. Minnie married Alfred Savage, of Ridgetown. Mabel married Alfred Crodon, and lives in London. Annie married George Laing, of Ridgetown. Maud married James Craig, of Chicago, and Ethel married Roy Gammage. (4) Charles E., born in 1834, married Amanda Stover, and lives in Ridge-town. He has three sons and one daughter- Wilbur, who married Elizabeth Rushton; Harry; Roy; and Dora, Mrs. Buller. (5) Jane married John Toll. (6) E. MV. is mentioned below.
E. W. Scane was born Sept. 9, 1838, in the township of Howard, on the same farm where he grew to manhood, and attended the rural schools. On his father's farm he formed the habits of industry and integrity which made him successful in both his profession and his business. In 1857 he entered Victoria College, graduating in 1858, and in the fall of that year entered the law office of C. R. Atkinson, with whom he remained five years. He passed his examination in 1865, and until his death was engaged in the practice of his profession in Chatham, being one of the oldest legal practitioners in the city. Mr. Scane was never a politician, preferring to give his time exclusively to his profession. He served his city as member of the council in 1872-73, as mayor in 1882-83, and in 1900-01 was again in the council. He was for some time a member of the Collegiate Institute Board in Chatham, and always took an interest in the educational matters of his city.
On Feb. 14, 1865, Mr. Scane and Miss Mary A. Spencer were united in marriage. Mrs. Scane is a daughter of William and Betsy (Cherry) Spencer, the former of whom was born in Hull, England, in 1800 and the latter in the United States in i810. They located in Chatham in 1838, and Mr. Spencer died there in 1847, the mother on Aug. 7, 1893. They had five children: Adelaide (Mrs. Thomas Stone), deceased; William, of California; Timothy, of California, deceased; Mrs. Scane; and Samuel, deceased. Mr. and Mrs. Scane became the parents of four children: (1) Walter W. was called to the Bar in 1887, and has been a legal practitioner in Chatham ever since, and is a member of the firm of Huston, Stone & Scane, barristers, of Chatham. He married Emma Wall. by whom he has two daughters, Mary and Margaret. (2) Adelaide Cherry married William J. Taylor, of Chatham, and has two children, William Wallace and Thomas Hulme. (3) John Wallace, a graduate of McGill Medical College, and now a practicing physician of Montreal, married Leonora Morris, and has one daughter, Mary Marjorie Amelia, and one son, John Morris. (4) Bessie C. married Joseph Hadley, of Chatham. Mr. Scane was a member of the Methodist Church, to which faith Mrs. Scane also adheres. Politically he was a Conservative. Mr. Scane owned one of the many beautiful homes in Chatham, and was numbered among the leading members of the legal profession, not only in Chatham but in Ontario.
