Cuthbert Cumming House

In 1846, Cuthbert Cumming and his wife Jane McMurray acquired a portion of this property, and they bought the balance in 1852. Cumming was born in Scotland and, after working in the Canadian west and Québec, he retired as a Chief Trader for the Hudson Bay Company. He remained in Colborne for many years, listed in the census records as “a gentleman” until his demise in 1870. He is buried in the Trinity Anglican Church cemetery where headstones tell a tale of Cumming family tragedy with the deaths of multiple children. As part of Digital Doors Open, learn more about this house in the video below.
