In the Early Canada Online Project (Univ of Toronto Digital Library, I found a reference to a Mr. James Spike.

The Canadian portrait gallery Dent, John Charles, 1841-1888. 330 pages. (Toronto : J.B. Magurn, 1880.) Subject : Canada -- Biography.; Canada -- Biographies. English Canadian Literature - Littérature canadienne-anglaise CIHM: 07405 Matching pages: 117.- Biography on The Hon Josephe Howe.

Top of pg 117 reads
"In 1827 he [Howe] embarked in the newspaper business on his own account. Conjointly with his friend Mr. James Spike, he purchased the Weekly Chronicle newspaper, the name of which was changed to that of The Acadian, and he then for the first time came before the public of Nova Scotia as a general newspaper writer. …."

Is this James Spike part of the above family.
