On the step's pull-out tray: "HONOUR BRIGHT / BUCK'S STOVE WORKS / BRANTFORD / REGISTERED"
The HONOR BRIGHT stove was made at Brantford, Ontario by "Buck's Stove Works".
It belonged to the George Bothwell family and was used at "Bothwell's Manor", a 19th-century Victorian farm house located on the north side of Highway 26 near Hatton's Corners [in the former Sydenham Township Grey County]. This location is just east of Owen Sound, Grey County.
It was passed down to Mr. and Mrs. Gordon & Viola Bothwell. For many years it was used in the basement of Bothwell's Manor. After the kitchen was transferred to the first floor area, the cook stove remained in the basement, and was mainly used to boil down syrup and boil water for washing clothes in the 20tn-century.
