Captain William Byers, Master Mariner, dreamed of regaining Fenham, his grand ancestral home along the river Tyne, but time was marching on. Disheartened with the seafaring life, he decided to bring his family to Canada to engage in the lucrative timber trade. There he and his dear Mary would build a new Fenham. In 1833 they sailed out of London on board the Success, bound for Canada. Two years later the captain was dead, stranding his widow and their children in the bush of the Laurentians.
Travel with Mary and her family over the next 130 years, as they carve Fenham out of the wilderness of eastern Ontario. As the pioneer period grows into the age of specialized farming only to be replaced by the era of scientific agriculture, you will encounter tragedy and triumph, pathos and comedy, strong-minded characters and comical creatures like Herman, the “pothead” Holstein, and Teddy and Betty, the neighbours
