Teachers in Upper Canada 1855 Receiving Pensions

Olive Tree Genealogy has added images and a list of 120 teachers who were being superannuated, or given a pension, in Upper Canada in 1855. Each teacher is numbered and there are two pages for each entry. Find your name of interest and note the number beside the name. Then find the second page for that same number to read the details. I have transcribed the names from each image to assist researchers.
