Percy Township:

I am searching for any information such as Marriage, Children, Death, on John PRATT, born in the USA 1798. He is found in the 1871 census for Percy Township, Northumberland County. Family members include: Benjamin F. PRATT, b. 1786 and found in the Durham County 1871 Census listed as 85 years old, [perhaps an uncle]; Benjamin F. PRATT, b. 1808 in Crowland, Welland, Ontario; Edward PRATT, b. 1810 in Vienna Township, Elgin County; and David, b. 1797 in Chatham Township, Kent County.

All these individuals are listed in the 1871 census records, although my branch departed in 1860 and settled in South Stockton, Chautauqua Co, NY. I will use any data sent to me as I am located in New York and am unable to come to Canada for research.

Please respond to: Delores Pratt DAVIDSON, Chautauqua Co, NY at jcricket@cecomet.net

Searching for PARENTS, SIBLINGS, DESCENDANTS of Jennie H. WALTON, 1849-1929. She married John Albert BROWN. He died in Port Hope in 1927.

I am looking for information on the WELLINGTON family. I am specifically looking for records on Peter and Emlyn (Emmaline, Evelyn) WELLINGTON who had at least two daughters (Harriet born 1843 and m. John COEDY in Oshawa 1866) and a son baptised in 1849 (no further record). Their elder daughter may have been named Mary or Maria and MAY have married Albert? THROOP. She MAY be the Mary WELLINGTON buried in Coburg Union, Hamilton Township. Peter is said to have immigrated from England and in Harriet's marriage notice was "the late Peter Wellington of Cambourne". There are several WELLINGTON's buried in Hamilton Township. Unfortunately I do not know how they are related to Peter and Emlym. Peter and Emlyn both died sometime between 1851 and 1861.

I am also looking for any record of Richard WELLINGTON who married Cynthia RETSON and who both died in Oshawa. Richard is in the 1871 census of Ontario County. I have several pieces of information that confirm he was born in 1821 in England somewhere. He is likely Peter's brother but we cannot confirm this.

Thanks for any information anyone may have on this family. Please respond to: Robbin COEDY, at rcoedy@uoguelph.ca

Does anyone know if St. Michael's in Coburg ever had a cemetery attached to it? This would probably go back 100 years. I believe some BRADYs may have been buried there is such a cemetery ever existed.

Hamilton Township or Hamilton City?

My gggrandfather, Henry WARD born 10 July 1824, listed his place of birth as Hamilton, Canada. I am trying to determine if it was Hamilton Township, Northumberland Co. or Hamilton (city), Wentworth Co. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Henry WARD was listed in the 1851 census of Dereham, Oxford Co. and I have info on him from that date forward, but none tracing him back to Hamilton.
