Dates of existence



Robert Sproul (1808-1860) emigrated to Upper Canada from County Fermanagh, Ireland; his wife Sarah, from County Down. Prior to her marriage to Sproul, Sarah was married to Edward Savage, innkeeper at Kingston. Sproul and his family resided in the village of Clark Mills, now called Camden East, from the early 1840's until 1858. His occupation at this time is documented as farmer and innkeeper. In 1857 or 1858 he moved to Kingston where he leased properties for business and residential purposes on Princess Street near Clergy. Most notable of these were Storrington House and Addinton House, both likely used as hotels. Sproul died on August 21, 1860 and was buried at Clark Mills. He was survived by his wife and seven children
