  • Notes 
    • In 1854 John's two daughters Annie and Elizabeth (Lizzie) returned to Red River after nearly a decade of schooling in England. According to one observer: "...they can play elegantly on the harp, guitar, piano, they sing melodiously and methodically, they can dance and waltz like true English dames..." The harp and piano belonging to the Misses Ballenden were carefully transported from York Factory to Red River, while the items listed in their private orders sent to England the next year show that they possessed extensive and fashionable wardrobes.
