A Petition for the Dissolution of

Mrs Martha J Jeune's Commercial Partnership with

Samuel Mersman

Toronto, 1910


Martha Jane [nee ALLEN] JEUNE was born on Quebec's Gaspe Penninisula in 1852, She married there in 1874, and travelled with her husband, Edwin Jeune, and their growing family, through Montreal and Sherbrooke, Quebec, before settling finally in Toronto, Ontario, by mid-1891. In Toronto, some time between the fall of 1906 and 1910, Martha Jane entered in to a business partnership with Samuel MERSMAN. Their partnership was identified as the 'Canada Brass Manufacturing Company'. Mrs Martha J Jeune initiated procedings through the courts of Ontario to have her partnership with Mersman dissolved, and a notice about the commencment of the proceedings before Mr. Justice LATCHFORD appeared in the Toronto Daily Star on Tuesday, 20 December 1910 [Page 19, Column 2], as appears here. Details about the court case have not yet been examined (the Archives of Ontario is currently restricting access to their facilities because of COVID-19 mitigation regulations), but significant background information about Martha Jane Jeune, Samuel Abe Mersman, and Mr Justice Francis R Latchford has been gathered.
