Samuel Wesley Handy

     Samuel Wesley Handy was born circa 1832 in Offaly. His son's middle name of Alexander suggests the Barraghcore family. He was the son of Thomas Wade Handy and Elizabeth Knott.
The website: [EMAIL:]www.springfieldhouse.ie[:EMAIL] has pictures, map and the following details: Springfield House, located near Daingean, County Offaly is a protected structure and an excellent example of the class of Georgian house described by Dr Maurice Craig in his book entitled,
'Classic Irish Houses of the Middle Size'.
Springfield House is a mid eighteenth century seven bay two storied double pile house with pedimented centre of 3 bays on the South front, the wide front door being flanked by a pair of narrow windows in a typical 1760s composition. On the north elevation is a pair of arched openings, one of which lights the staircase, while the second has been cut back to merely a fanlight, but probably lit the service stair.
The house was extensively modernised circa 1857 and all the joinery in the principal rooms date from this time, as do the chimneys and stone coping to gables. The western bays of the rear pile also appear to be an addition of this date. There is a cellar under the western part of the front pile which may originally have been a basement.
The plan of the house comprises a central hall flanked by Drawing and Dining Rooms on the front, with above them the Upper Hall leading to the two principal bedrooms. To the rear is the Stair Hall, slightly off centre with a somewhat crude wreathed and ramped staircase with cut brackets and turned spindles. Flanking this there is a narrow bay which probably housed the service stair and in the corner, over the Kitchen, are two bedrooms (one very small) served by a short corridor, and in the 19th century addition, over what may have been a billiards room with a considerably higher ceiling, are again two bedrooms. There is a lean-to building outside the kitchen housing domestic offices. There are also extensive yards and outbuildings. The house has been largely untouched since the 1857 renovations.

Copy of an article written about Samuel Wesley Handy in the Victoria Colonist. Sam Handy Recalls Days When Indians On Warpath. By Special Correspondent.
     Living on the west shore of Shawnigan Lake is one of Vancouver Island's most picturesque & interesting old timers. Sam Handy has been a very handy man in his day. He has been a prospector, a fighter in Indian uprisings, an Indian interpreter & farmer. He quit work at ninety-one & is now ninety-six. After living ninety years in Canada, & seventy-three in British Columbia, most of this time on Vancouver Island, he had difficulty proving he was eligible for the old age pension.
"I was born in Ireland during the reign of King William the Fourth in 1835, stated Sam, and only lived in the Old Country during four years of Queen Victoria's reign. "I left Ireland for New York in 1841 on a sailing ship & we made the trip with favorable winds in three weeks. Although I am now ninety-six I remember the trip well. After leaving New York I came by way of the Erie Canal to Canada. There were no fine steamers in those days. We were drawn along the canal in barges by horses to St. Catherines, Ont., & at that point I got ashore, & traveled by wagon to London, Ont. This part of Ontario was then nothing more than bush country. This mode of living was very rough. It was not long before I was on the move again & it seemed as though I was not destined to stay very long anywhere. I traveled through the eastern states until I reached Nicaragua. In those days there were two railways running from east to west from there, & I traveled over the Vanderbilt line, & up to San Francisco, where I arrived in 1853. I stayed in San Francisco for about five years. Hearing of gold on the Fraser River I headed for Victoria, boarding a sailing ship called the Robert Passenger, & it took fourteen days to make the trip, just a week less than it took me to reach New York from Ireland. I had heard a lot about Victoria when in San Francisco, & expected to find a much larger place than I did, especially when it was the chief town in British Columbia in those days. I was pleased to get off the ship & get ashore once again.
On arrival at Victoria I noticed there were no wharves & that the Hudson's Bay Stores were inside a stockade, fourteen to sixteen feet high. I noticed that the ships Otter & Beaver were anchored close by, & that it was customary to land passengers on rocks near by on account of there being no wharves to tie up at. "I did not stay long in Victoria, because I had gold fever, just as most had about that time. I was only twenty-three years of age, & moved inland by way of New Westminster. I wintered between Lytton & Lillooet & washed gold with we called the rocking system in 1858. Later on I got an appointment as a mate on a lightship at the mouth of the Fraser. I was at this post for a few years. It was at New Westminster that I married & have brought up a family of four girls & two boys. I was impressed on reaching Victoria by the lack of wharves. So I started to build wharves. I built a wharf in Victoria for Sam Woodcock. I built all the wharves at Moodyville before there was such a place as Vancouver, & made good at this line of business, stated Sam. I also built what was once known as the Prevost Dock, near where the old J.B.A.A. building stood in Victoria. However, the climate of Vancouver Island had got such a hold on me that I could not resist the idea of taking up land not too far away from Victoria. I found the area around Cobble Hill & Mill Bay to my liking & reached this district about 1873.
I bought 160 acres at Mill Bay & developed part of it. The Solarium is on my old property to-day," stated Sam. "Through no fault of my own I lost it & that is why I am a pensioner to-day. I was a volunteer in two expeditions against the Indians, once at Bentinck Arm & another at Bute Inlet." Sam Handy has a remarkable memory & can relate anything from the time of his leaving his native land in 1841 until the present day. In relating his story of the Indian troubles on the west coast of the mainland of British Columbia Sam recalled that volunteers were called for & that he went as an interpreter. Bentinck Arm was named by Capt. George Vancouver in 1793. In the early colonial days North Bentinck was the scene of several Indian tragedies. It was much frequented by prospectors & traders, as a pack trail led from the head of the Arm to the Cariboo district. Settlers made their homes in the valley in 1863. In the winter of '62-63 a tribe of Indians treacherously murdered four white men. A gunboat was was sent up, but no prisoners were taken. After this campaign, Sam returned, only to be called out again the following year to go to Bute Inlet, where a massacre of whites had taken place.
Waddington Harbor, Bute Inlet, named after Alfred Waddington, early pioneer of British Columbia & one of the most enterprising men of Victoria. In 1862 he conceived the idea of constructing a wagon road from the head of Bute Inlet to Fort Alexandria, & thence eastward, & in the execution of this idea spent nearly all his fortune. He struggled against great difficulties, until the Chilcotin Indians massacred, on April 30, 1864, nearly all his road makers, fourteen of them being killed. This disaster caused him to cease operations. Several of the murderers were ultimately captured, & five were hanged on October 26, 1864. Bute Inlet was named by Capt. Vancouver after John Stewart, third Earl of Bute, in 1792. Bute Inlet was proposed by Alfred Waddington in 1862 as a terminus of a railway & steamboat route between the Atlantic & Pacific oceans. "I remember all this early history," stated Sam Handy, & to-day I often think of what might have happened around Bute Inlet had Mr. Waddington not died quite so soon. My job was a comparatively easy one. I had to bargain with the Indians for various articles for the men on the gunboats. The gruesome sights we saw on our arrival, both at Bentinck Arm & Bute Inlet, were something one cannot forget. There was no quarter given by the Indians & if any should happen to get into their hands there was little hope of returning alive." stated Sam. "It was some years after that I took up my Mill Bay property. After losing this property I had to get our & work for a living. I was a janitor at the West Coast hospital in the Albernis for a number of years. When the duties got too stiff for a man of my years, I took up another position as janitor at the Royal Bank in Port Alberni. I got this job when I was a 'young man eighty-four years old." I managed to keep this position until I was ninety-one years of age. I might still have been at my job but for failing eyesight. This really is my only drawback to-day."
"About the time I left the bank I felt I was eligible for the old age pension. I was then about ninety-two & figured that I would have no difficulty getting it. The trouble started when I told them my birth & marriage certificates were lost in a fire some time before. I was told that I must first get other copies of my certificates & furthermore, after being in ninety years in Canada & seventy-three in British Columbia, I was told I must get some reliable person or persons to prove I had been in the country fifty years. It took me some time to get all this material together, & I made several journeys from Shawnigan Lake to Cobble Hill before I received notice I would, at the age of ninety-two, be eligible to receive the pension. After the authorities taking so much time getting this pension, I am going to take good care I am going to live as long as it is possible & get all I can."

     A Samuel Wesley Handy married Laura West on 27 October 1884..
     Samuel died on 5 March 1933 in Shawnigan Lake, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, aged 97. He had been 91 years in Canada. There is an obituary in the Victoria Daily times, 7 March 1933 p. 9. He was buried on 8 March 1933 in Mill Bay, Vancouver Island.
