My Family History

Welcome to my family’s history.

I live on Prince Edward Island and so has my family for a couple of centuries. 

…and I have to start somewhere:

In no particular order, I am starting with the the Townshends. Well, there is some order in choosing this branch as the starting point because they were here longer than the other branches. William Townshend (1745-1816…or was it 1762-1816)* was my 4x greatgrandfather. His wife was Flora Stewart (1767-1843), about whom I don’t yet know much.

But what I do know has been interesting reading…so more on Flora later.

*Part of the confusion about his birthdate is related to confusion about who his daddy was. Okay, to be more precise, who his whole family was.
