Beau­ti­ful Grounds

The Bayfield-Jaynes home is lo­cated on park-like grounds which in­cludes a two storey Late Re­gency style house. The prop­erty is sit­u­ated in the Kep­poch area of Strat­ford over­look­ing the Hills bor­ough Bay.

Orig­i­nal Owner

It is be­lieved that the build­ing was con­structed in 1867 for Ad­mi­ral Henry Wolse­ley Bayfield and his fam­ily. Ad­mi­ral Bayfield, his wife, Fanny Amelia Wright, an ac­com­plished painter and in­struc­tor, oc­cu­pied the home as a sum­mer res­i­dence. Bayfield has been rec­og­nized for his sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments in sur­vey­ing and chart­ing the coastal wa­ters of east­ern Canada.

More Re­cent Oc­cu­pants

In the late 1800’s, the prop­erty changed hands a num­ber of times. By 1918, Rev. Ju­lian C. Jaynes and his wife Clara Bullard pur­chased the es­tate; fam­ily mem­bers sum­mered there un­til the 1990’s.
