FAMILY MEMOIRS-of Percival Charles Allworth:
"At one time his son, Percival, referred to his father as the 'Red Devil' both because of the color of his hair and his somewhat violent temper. Allegedly, he used to go about visiting his patients in his horse and buggy."

OBITUARY - 1909:
Kingsville this week suffered a severe loss in the death of one of its most prominent and influential citizens, Dr. Edward Allworth, which took place on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. The Doctor was taken violently ill on Friday, the 29th ult. The seriousness of his attack soon became apparent and notwithstanding all that medical skill and the most tender care and nursing could do, the end came rapidly.
He attended Dr. Livingstone's Grammar School at London in Ontario; then subsequently continued his studies at Toronto Medical College, getting his degree of M.D. in 1858.
He began the practice of his profession at the village of Delaware. In 1860 he removed to Essex county and after a short time at Colchester South came to Kingsville.
In 1886 he gave up the practice of his profession and accepted the offices of Clerk of the Division Court and Collector of Customs which he held up to the time of his death.
In addition to his official positions mentioned, the deceased was very active in all fraternal and religious matters.
A devout and consistent member of the Anglican church he filled the important office of church-warden for forty-two consecutive years and for many years before his death that of Lay Reader. He was active in the Sunday School work, also. Altogether his work in connection with the Church of the Epiphany was so valuable and helpful that his loss will be irreparable. He was a strong advocate of Sunday observance and was President of the local branch of the Lord's Day Alliance.
In fraternal matters he was pre-eminent. He was a member of the Independent Order of Foresters, Ancient Order of United Workmen, and Recorder of the Chosen friends. In Masonry, however, his career was particularly brilliant. He was Worshipful Master of St. George's Lodge for eighteen consecutive years, was a Past District Deputy Grand Master of Erie District and Past Grand Junior Warden of Grand Lodge.
He took a deep interest in educational matters, being for thirty years a member of the public school board and for some time before his death secretary-treasurer of the board.
In his earlier years he took an active and prominent part in politics being President of the Liberal-Conservative Association of the County of Essex before its division, and of the Liberal-Conservative Association of Essex after division.
In the multifarious and exacting duties of
the several public offices he held, he was painstaking and conscientious. In his daily walk and conversation, in his social and public life he was an influence for good, always. Uniformly courteous and considerate he was universally loved and respected. He was, in short, the best type of a broad-minded christian gentleman, and his life was so engrafted into that of the town that the memory of Dr. Allworth, his infinite charm of manner and delightful personality, can never fade from the hearts and minds of its citizens.
His wife, and all his children, had the melancholy satisfaction of being with the deceased during his last hours.
