William Nevin Angell (1873-1956) et Hannah Hodgson (1878 – 1924)

William Nevin Angell, son of John Angell, is the grandson of William Angell and Mary Garbutt, the ancestors who acquired farm #5 in 1840 to become the first English farming family to establish themselves in Beaurepaire. The farmhouse at 530 Lakeshore Road was built in 1860 for John Angell, father of William Nevin.

William Nevin Angell and Hannah Hodgson had 7 children out of which 4 lived to be adult:
Doris (1906-1998), Cecil (1908-1980), Earl (1911-1966) and Roberta (1914-2006). None of the children married, leaving no descendant.

In 2001, the City of Beaconsfield cited this heritage house, at the request of Roberta Angell, daughter of William Nevin, the last Angell to live in this house. The house is thus protected from demolition.
