This isn't really a genealogy question, but I figured someone visiting this site might know enough about the region to answer. I am researching an artifact and need some help! It is a tobacco cutter, and it has these words printed on it: "Wellington Tobacco Cutter Guelph". Does anyone know what company could have produced this? Was there a company in Guelph named 'Wellington' or is this a reference to Wellington County? I'm having a hard time finding any info on this . . .     Posted on Wed Feb 11 20:40:00 2004

65 THOMAS    
Robert Thomas was killed in 1896 while trying to escape from a whaling ship in the Beaufort Sea to the Yukon gold mines. His father worked for the Bell organ company in Guelph. He many have come from elsewhere in Ontario as his own organ company had gone bankrupt a few years earlier. Robert had a sister named "Maggie" and a brother Charles. Robert was born in 1874, but I'm not sure where. I'm writing about Robert's death, but know almost nothing about his Ontario roots. If I can get a thread of early family history, it may be possible to trace descendants of Charles and Maggie. Do you have someone who could help me navigate the databases. Would be happy to pay for services. Thank you!!! Walter V.     Posted on Sun Mar 7 07:47:36 2004

They were members of the Puslinch Methodist Church in 1851. Their sons Alfred & William came to MI later. Alfred married Nancy SECORD in Ontario & had two daughters in the 1851 Census.
Supposedly John was born in PA & Charlotte WOOD in Canada. Charlotte is buried in the Palmerston Cemetery at Minto. How can I find out when she died or any information about her Wood Family. John was a Widower when he married Charlotte.

104 NICKLIN    
I am doing research on the Nickling family in Wellington, Ontario region. I am especially interested in a John Nicklin and Mary Underwood who arrived in Pilkington about 1824-1828 according to the history books. I am looking for any information on this couple of when they came to Canada and what John and Mary birthdates are. John should be somewhere about 1781 and Mary's. I know they came from England and that they probably got married in 1806. There was about 10 in the family but they may have come over with relatives. Some were born in England. I have some of the children's names. I think James and Phoebe may have been related but I havne't been able to find them on a passenger list yet. I think they may have going into the states first and then come to Canada but not sure. I also think Mary ended up in Acton and spent her last days there. Thank you for any info you have.

116 HUNTER    
I am trying to assist two cousins of mine in tracing their family tree. Their grandmother was Annie Mabel Hunter born May 1891 who married James "Russell" McIntosh. I found an Annie Hunter in Toronto in the 1901 census living close to the McIntosh family who seems to fit, tracing this Hunter family from Toronto in 1901 to Guelph, Wellington Co., in 1881 leads me to believe she was the daughter of Daniel Hunter and his wife Rebecca, and sister to George B. Hunter born Cir. 1872, James D. Hunter born Cir. 1873, William B. Hunter born Cir.1879, Charles W. Hunter born Cir. 1880, Mary J. R. Hunter born Cir. 1882, Ethel Hunter born Cir. 1886, Alexander M. Hunter born Cir. 1888. When Annie married in 1916 in Toronto, the write up said her mother was living on Roxton Road in Toronto and refers to her brother as A. M. Hunter, B.A. B.Sc.and one sister had married an Axworthy.     Posted on Tue Aug 30 10:49:03 2005

122 FARMER, GALBRAITH    
My ancestors John and Mary (Hamill) Farmer with their son William and his wife Mary (Galbraith) farmed on the 5th Conc. in West Garafraxa. This land was purchased in the mid 1870's. We know the family originated in Armaugh, Ireland and then went to Glasgow, Scotland before coming to Canada. We have been unable to trace the Farmers or Galbraiths in Ireland. We have traced the Hamill family to Issac and Isabela Hamill. John was supposedly lost in a drowning accident but no records have been found. Mary Galbraith died in 1883 and is buried in the Arthur Cemetery on hwy. 9. The family moved to Owen Sound some time in the 1890s. Help with information would be greatly appreciated.

124 FRENCH and other Aynho, Northamptonshire, settlers    
I wanted to post this note for Wellington County researchers with English ancestors; it would have helped me if I'd ever found one like it! People with surnames like Borton, Boulding, Bye, Chadbone, Churley, Elkerton, Elkington, Ford, Hall, Homer, Howse, King, Lasby, Peckover, Wing and French (my own ancestors). Have recently discovered that squire William Ralph Cartwright, a reformer and extensive landowner in south-west Northamptonshire, settled many, many dozens of his surplus agricultural labourers in Wellington County between the late 1820s and his death in 1847. If you're lost for an English connection, and have anyone born after statutory registration begins, try checking your ancestors in the Brackley registration district, as it includes Aynho.    Posted on Wed Nov 16 13:06:32 2005
