William Wills MAYNARD
William W. Maynard was born in Clarenceville, Quebec on the fifth of May, 1841, the son of William Henry and Ann (Foster) Maynard. His early years were spent in and around the farming community once known as Caldwell Manor.
In 1851 William, then age ten, lived with his parents in the village of Clarenceville where his father operated a chair shop. It's likely here that young William learned how to sharpen an implement, a skill that would come in handy when he
later chose to establish himself as a butcher.
In 1862, William married Elizabeth Margaret Boyce of LaColle. She was the daughter of Richard and Elizabeth (Petty) Boyce. At the time of their union in LaColle, William was age 21 and Elizabeth was 25.
Although William became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1876, it appears he was in Champlain, N.Y. as early as 1871, the year of his son Marshall's birth. William's mother along with his eldest and youngest sister, first appear in the U.S. in
a single Champlain residence on the 1870 census. William had established a butcher shop in Champlain by 1872. In 1875 William's shop was located under Graves and Sons tin shop as a partnership with a Mr. Long. The same year, the partnership
dissolved and William went into business with his brother- in- law James Boyce. That shop was located in Nye's building.
It is known that William's health soon failed. He became confined to a wheelchair due to some form of rheumatism. According to his obituary William remained bedridden for 29 years.
Various pieces of property were owned by William and Elizabeth around the Champlain area. They included several portions of lot 48 of the Smith and Graves Patent and a substantial lot with buildings northwest of the Dewey Tavern.
William died of heart failure, complicated by chronic rheumatism at 1 am. on Wednesday the twentieth day of April, 1904.1 HIST Reciept, for meat from W.W. Maynard to Mr. Freeman Nye, 1872
