Biography / History

John Northway was born on August 17, 1848, at Leat, near Lifton, England, the eldest son of Thomas Neathern Northway and Grace Doidge. In 1868, John left England for New York, where he was soon relieved of his watch and money. Disenchanted, he made his way to Canada, and went to work for a tailor in Embro, Ontario. From this inauspicious beginning, Northway became a merchant, manufacturer and financier with partnerships throughout the province and investments throughout the continent. Having achieved success, Northway sent his children to the best schools, and provided for them the formal education he had never received. John Northway founded two main companies: The Northway Company Limited, and John Northway and Son Limited. Upon his death in 1926, leadership of these two firms fell to his sons, A. Garfield and John A. respectively, under whose direction expansion and later retraction was carried out. The factory, begun in 1896 to supply the companies, was closed down in 1930. John Northway and Sons Limited came to have three stores in Toronto, and one each in Hamilton and Stratford. In 1957, this company bought the Brantford outlet of the Northway Company Limited, which A.G. Northway, who foresaw no successor, had been gradually disposing of. In January 1960, A.G. Northway died, and The Northway Company Limited was put into voluntary liquidation by its directors. In November 1960, the directors of John Northway and Sons Limited sold the company to outside interests. It has since disappeared.

Custodial History

The fonds remained with the Northway family until it was donated to the Trent University Archives.

Scope and Content

The fonds consists of the personal diaries, letter books, and store notebooks of John Northway and his son A.G. Northway and the business and corporate records of the companies founded by John Northway and Son Limited, the Northway Company Limited, and their various subsidiaries throughout Ontario. They include pension fund operations, ledgers, financial statements, investment registers etc. No records exist which show the manufacturing operations of John Northway and Son Limited.

Notes

Finding Aid

The papers are stored in 62 boxes, which are arranged in the following series:

SECTION I: Personal and Liquidation. (Boxes 1-16)

This section begins with John Northway's personal diaries, and follows through with those of his son, A.G. Northway. The section concludes with the liquidation papers of  The Northway Company Limited, which took place in 1960, upon the death of A.G.Northway.

SECTION II: The "Rush Papers". (Boxes 17-18)

These papers, which were created by J.H. Rush, shed a great deal of light on John Northway's post 1889 career. Their internal integrity has been respected, and the group incorporated into the Northway papers to serve as a general introduction to the corporate records section of  the papers.

SECTION III: The Northway Company Limited. (Boxes 19-35)

SECTION IV: John Northway and Son Limited. (Boxes 36-58)

Beginning with John Northway's personal financial accounts book and balance sheets from the Northway-Anderson concern inTillsonburg, these sections follow through with the financial statements, investment records, pension fund operations, ledgers,capital, stock and accounts receivable of the two main Northwayconcerns. Papers of The Northway Company Limited date from 15 January 1901; those of John Northway and Son Limited from 29 November 1913. These papers represent the contribution of the firm that was the Northway's chartered accountant for over fifty years. In incorporating the "J.R. Neff Papers" into the Northway group, they have been separated and organized chronologically by company, with cross-references made where necessary. No records which show the operations of the manufacturing line of John Northway and Son Limited are available.

SECTION V: (Boxes 59-62)

This section consists of family - genealogical and historical material collected and written up by Miss Mary L.Northway, and of various negatives, photographs and advertisement plates from the personal and corporate lives of the Northways.
