John Burgoyne and Mary Langdon Family:

2. William Burgoyne (Went to sea at any early age. The last time he visited his parents he was unmarried and about 30 years of age. He went back to sea and was never heard of again)

3. Susan Burgoyne
D: Died rather early in life unmarried

4. Edward Burgoyne
B: 10 Nov 1830, Appledore, Cornwall, England
D: 12 Jun 1922
M: (1) Jun 1849, Susan Taylor b. 1829, Devonshire, England and came with her parents and family to North Granville, PEI in 1837. Susan Taylor died 14 Feb 1903, Age 74.
M: (2) Jun 1904, Mary (MacNeil) Oaks. She married twice before. d. 1926

It was reported that Edward arrived in Brookfield, PEI, Canada in 1843 from Cornwall, England, with parents, John and Mary (Langdon) Burgoyne, two sisters, and a brother, William. He was later granted 100 acres of land at North Granville.

John Burgoyne was listed in the 1848 census on Lot 31 as son of William Burgoyne.

J. Burgoyne was listed on some kind of sheet under the year 1858 which showed him to be 79 years of age. May 4th is shown on the right side of the sheet. Being 79 in 1858 would make him b. circa 1779.

John Burgoyne of Lot 21 (where North Granville is located) as only surviving son and heir of William Burgoyne transferred on February 16, 1858 one lease for the 50 acres which William Burgoyne got directly from the Selkirk estate to William Matthews, Sr. in trust for William Matthews, Jr., age 16, eldest son of William Matthews, Sr. Would make this William Matthews Jr. born ca. 1842. A William Matthews married Elizabeth Burgoyne in Charlottetown in 1840 and this is likely their son.

On the same day, John Burgoyne also transferred to William Matthews, Sr. in his own right the 50 acres which WIlliam Burgoyne had obtained by transfer from Joseph Wise. This, in effect, gave William Matthews, Sr. control over the entire 100 acres but half of which he held only in trust for his eldest son. It appears this doesn't put Matthews on Lot 31 before 1858 but it might be conjectured, since Burgoyne was an elderly man when he got the leases, that Matthews may have been farming the land for him?). Part of the puzzle is that a William Matthews married an Elizabeth Burgoyne in Charlottetown in 1840.

Selkirk Estate leased 50 acres directly to William Burgoyne

William Burgoyne got a lease of 50 acres directly from the Selkirk Estate

John Burgoyne, the only surviving son and heir of William Burgoyne, transferred the lease on 16 Feb 1858 to William Matthews Sr.

Webb, William b. 1817, came with his parents, James Webb (1788-1855) to PEI around 1830-1832, Lot 33. He married Sarah Wise, eldest daughter of Joseph Wise, Lot 32, in 1842.

Joseph Wise arrived with his wife, Mary Burgoyne. After Mary's death, he remarried Grace Ryer in 1831 and two sons were born - Joseph Wise, 1834, Richard Wise, 1838. It is circumstantial but it appears Mary Burgoyne's father was William Burgoyne, Lot 31, who died in 1858 and is buried in St. John's Anglican Church Cemetery, Milton. William Burgoyne's son, John Burgoyne, was listed on Lot 31 in the 1848 census.

Webb, William b. 1817, came with his parents, James Webb (1788-1855) to PEI around 1830-1832, Lot 33. He married Sarah Wise, eldest daughter of Joseph Wise, Lot 32, in 1842. Joseph Wise arrived with his wife, Mary Burgoyne. After Mary's death, he remarried Grace Ryer in 1831 and two sons were born - Joseph Wise, 1834, Richard Wise, 1838. It appears Mary Burgoyne's father was William Burgoyne, Lot 31, who died in 1858 and is buried in St. John's Anglican Church Cemetery Milon or Milton.
