Here is an article that I found on Thomas Sparling (1830-1915):

"Thomas SPARLING, a retired farmer of Uttoxeter and one of the best known citizens of Plympton Township, was born in Rainamoore, County Tipperary, Ireland, Nov. 1st, 1830, son of the late Peter SPARLING and his wife Elizabeth (BARRY) SPARLING. William SPARLING, a well known resident of Forest is another brother.

Thomas SPARLING was educated in the national schools of Ireland, and afterwards, learned the trade of a carpenter and wheelwright. When he was 17, in 1847, the family left Ireland and after a passage of 6 weeks on a sailing vessel landed in New York. Going directly to Toronto the young man followed his trade in that vicinity for 17 years before moving to Lambton County. There in 1867, he bought 100 acres of land in Lot 27, Concession 9, which were almost wholly wild, and which he was some years clearing. Putting up a log house he began his pioneer life. As the timber was cut it was sold as cord wood. During the 15 years Mr. SPARLING lived there, he cleared the land, brought it under cultivation, made various improvements and put up a fine dwelling. Giving the management of this farm to his son Robert, Mr. SPARLING moved to Lot 25, Concession 10, where he bought 50 acres at first and later 40 more. He put up a house on this place also, and added improvements as he had on the other farm.

In 1880 he sold his first 50 acres to Mr. BURNS (BYRNS), and then bought his present farm from his brother, William. This he operated for thirteen years, but in 1902, he retired from active life and left his son to take charge."
