George Jervis Goodhue

Sheep for Sale!

On March 24, 1827, the first known commercial advertisement from London appears in the Gore Gazette of Ancaster.  George Jervis Goodhue (1799-1870), stated he would have 250 young sheep by August 1 which he would barter with cashless settlers for "Salts of Lye" at the rate of "three dollars per hundred."  Goodhue eventually became one of the richest men in London.  When he died, his estate was worth $650,000.
