David Tice Bastedo was born December 3, 1769 in Schenectady, New York. He was the son of Jacob Bastedo and Clara/Clarissa Jean "Clary" Van Slyke. David's middle name came from his Uncle, Gilbert Tice, whom David was very close to. David's mother's sister, Christina Van Slyke was married to Gilbert Tice, a well known Loyalist Officer. He was in Butler's Rangers, a well known Loyalist unit. He is officially listed on The Old United Empire Loyalists' List, Appendix B, Page 265 as Captain Gilbert Tice. He is listed also on Page 136 of the List as being the Uncle of David Bastedo. They came to Canada together in 1783-84. David was only 14 years old at the time.

Gilbert Tice, aka Geysbert Tyce was a Loyalist officer who came to Upper Canada with his brother-in-law, Jacob Bastedo during the American Revolution. He was an officer with the Indian Department at Niagara. In 1775 he was a guide for Joseph Brant, the Mohawk leader, on his trip to England.

In 1796, David Bastedo married Elizabeth McMicking. Elizabeth's father, Peter McMicking is also listed on the Old United Empire Loyalist List Appendix B, Page 228-as a Captain in Butler's Rangers. Peter McMicking knew David even in his youth. Peter was a fellow officer in Butler's Rangers with David's Uncle Gilbert Tice during the war.

Jacob Bastedo (1743-1829) is buried at Waterdown Union Municipal Cemetery in Flamborough East. Ref.# HM-209. David Tice Bastedo, his son is also buried at the Waterdown Union Municipal Cemetery - Ref#HM-209. This makes sense because for many years, David had made his home in Flamborough East, Ontario, after moving from Stamford around 1830. I've heard that there is a David Bastedo buried at Blenheim, Ontario. If this is true, it is not the same David Bastedo, who we have been discussing. It is not the David Bastedo son of Jacob Bastedo, Loyalist - originally from Schenectady, New York.
