The Wilmot house which is located at 293 Dundas Street West in Belleville, Ontario is the former residence of S/L Charles Eardley Wilmot, A.F.C. Mr. Wilmot was a skilled military pilot who passed away during the afternoon of October 15, 1941 which was two years to the day from the time he enlisted in the R.C.A.F. He was born July 12, 1892 in Newcastle, Ontario, and earned the Air Force Cross for his service in the military. After the first World War, he moved to Belleville where he was elected mayor. In 1931, Mr. Wilmot moved near Branford with his family, and became deeply involved in the community.
After the outbreak of World War Two, Mr. Wilmot joined the R.C.A.F., and was commissioned as a flying officer. He soon after became Commander of G Flight at Camp Borden (C.F.B. Borden). It was from here he moved to the Uplands where he met his untimely death. How that death happened is up to debate. On October 15, 1941 documentation states that Mr. Wilmot was walking out to his plane across the tarmac. Another pilot did not see him, and the other pilot's propeller decapitated Mr. Wilmot. But according to some relatives - he died while racing across the tarmac, and ran into the propellor. No matter how this poor soul met his death, local tales tell of Eardley Wilmot spirit still roaming his former home on Dundas Street in Belleville.
