NELSON
Submitted by: Patty Brown pattyb@idirect.com 
Related surnames: CHRISTIE, KILGOUR, DAVISON, McGILLIVRAY

I'm looking for the decendants of  Horatio William NELSON, b.1846 in Montreal, (son of Horatio A. NELSON & Maria DAVISON) and his wife Isabella Patterson CHRISTIE, b.1852 in Toronto  (daughter of Alexander Ritchie CHRISTIE and Margaret KILGOUR).

Horatio W. NELSON and Isabella CHRISTIE were married in Toronto in 1873 where they are also buried . Horatio's siblings appear to have remained in Montreal as did many of  Isabella's CHRISTIE cousins. 

I'm hoping that a Montreal CHRISTIE  or NELSON decendant will know what happened to the decendants of  Horatio & Isabella. One of their daughters, Helen NELSON, married Donald McGILLIVRAY and both are buried in the NELSON plot in Toronto. 



NEWELL / NEWALL
submitted by : Barbara Giannone Horn whorn1@optonline.net
related surnames : CANT

I believe my mother was born in Montreal, Canada on November 17, 1914 to Samuel Rennie NEWELL and Mary CANT Newell.  Her name was Maryann or Mary Ann NEWELL

She had three brothers: 
* Lionel NEWELL
* Lloyd NEWELL
* Thomas NEWELL
and one sister :
* Jeanette or Jeanetta (not sure of the spelling) NEWELL. Jeanette died in childhood.

Mary Cant NEWELL also passed away as a young women and Sam remarried.
The best information that I have is that when Sam remarried, it was in the U.S. and he sent for his children who were living in an orphanage somewhere up in Canada.  I think my mother entered the orphanage at around the age of 2 and was there until she was 10 or 11.  I think they were raised Episcoplian. Any information would be appreciated.

Their first child, Colin PATERSON, was born the following year. In 1874, the family emigrated to the US and three more boys, William Alexander PATERSON, David McArthur PATERSON, and James Bryce PATERSON were born to them in 1877, 1879 and 1881 respectfully. I have not yet determined where in the US they were, but in 1884 they turned up in Montreal. Helen died here in 1886 and William followed in 1892, leaving four minor aged sons behind.

POUNDEN
submitted by: Debbie Keillar dkeillar@sympatico.ca
related surnames: PLUMMER - GOODFELLOW - TENNANT - STODDART

My gg-grandfather Matthew POUNDEN was born in Camolin, Wexford, Ireland around 1838.  He married Jane PLUMMER, probably of the same place. 
They had at least 2 sons: 

* William POUNDEN, born April 30, 1856 (my g-grandfather) 
* Richard Mathew POUNDEN, born June 22, 1865. 

William POUNDEN came to Montreal and married Amelia Allan GOODFELLOW in 1893. Amelia came to Montreal around 1881 to live with her uncle Thomas TENNANT and his wife Jeannie CAMERON? Amelia was born Feb. 16, 1866 in Glasgow, daughter of James GOODFELLOW and Catherine (Kate) TENNANT. She had 3 siblings, Christinn GOODFELLOW, Thomas GOODFELLOW & William GOODFELLOW.

William & Amelia had 11 children, 1 being my grandmother Christina Stoddart POUNDEN

My research has led me to believe that Catherine TENNANT's parents were James TENNANT and Christian (Christina) STODDART of Barony, Lanark, Scotland.  I am trying to trace the correct line of TENNANT and GOODFELLOW, as there seem to be a few of those family lines in Lanark, Scotland.

Would like to correspond and share info with anyone else in these family lines.

I'm trying to trace all descendants of the Missionary and Emancipationist William KNIBB
Winifred ''Freddie'' RAMSEY (nee FRAY) was his great granddaughter and she died in Montreal on 20 December 1968.  The surname might have been a RAMSAY not RAMSEY.  Her husband was a Doctor and she trained as a nurse, serving overseas in WWI.  She was awarded the R.R.C. by King George apparently. 

She had a son and daughter who survived her.  I have the names Blake RAMSEY and Betsy RAMSEY but am not sure if those are them. 

During WWII Blake was in some famous military outfit - (would assume from Canada) I can see a picture my grandmother had of him in kilts. Something GUARD, something WATCH or just plain something. Like some of the family things, I have not seen that picture either in years. Jogging the old braincells is driving me nuts. I also recall something swirling about Blake's head so don't recall if his service was outstanding or not. 

In the 1948 Montreal City directory there are 2 possible listings:
RAMSEY, G. Stuart, M.D.oculist, 1496 Mountain
RAMSAY, Mrs. Winifred, widow of Robert, 217 Percival Ave., Montreal West

Does anyone have knowledge of this family?

I have a lot of information on the SADLERs of the Châteauguay valley and the Upper Ottawa valley, many branches of which lived in Montreal from time to time after their first arrival in 1818. More recently, I have lost track of these Montreal cousins:

.......their son Edward 'Douglas' Meyers SADLER (1904-1970) m. Doris 'Elizabeth' HANNAN
..............their daughter Marilyn Arden SADLER m. Barry John KIRMAN

I believe it was a William SADLER who founded Sadler Conveyor, of Montreal (who recently changed their name to something else.) Anything on this family would be of interest. Also looking for more information on George W. Sadler of Montreal who operated Robin & Sadler from 1876 and then S & Haworth in the early part of the 20th century.

Seeking descendants of  Richard SAUNDERS, born 1851 at Cupids, Newfoundland, died at Montreal 12 April 1912.   His second wife was Catherine ROWE, born 1853 in Newfoundland, died at Montreal  8 July 1926.  He married Catherine ROWE, also known as Catherine BUTLER, 2 June 1889 at Cupids.

They had three children born at Cupids:
* Susie and Harry SAUNDERS (twins) born 18 July 1890 at Cupids
* William SAUNDERS (1894-1895). 
The family was Methodist.

Richard's first wife was Priscilla (maiden name unknown) who died 27 September 1882 at Cupids. 
The only known child of Richard and Priscilla Saunders was 
* Edward SAUNDERS (1879-1942).

The family of Richard and Catherine SAUNDERS moved to Montreal around 1905. Richard's brother, William Henry SAUNDERS (1863-1945), left Cupids in 1898 and moved to Vancouver. In 1912, when Richard SAUNDERS died, William brought his family to Montreal for the funeral.  They were close brothers.  William said that his brother taught him the construction trade which became his occupation.

Edward SAUNDERS was born 3 October 1879 at Cupids.  He married Emily WEBSTER 1918 at Montreal.  Edward died 28 June 1942 at Montreal. 

We don't know if  Edward & Emily had any children, or when Emily Saunders died.  We are looking for their descendnts or other SAUNDERS relatives from this Montreal side of our family.

Related surnames: BARRON, BOWEN, MARTIN, TAILLIEUR

I am seeking information on a Mark SCANLON and Catherine BARRON (or BOWEN) who were married in St-Gabriel Presbyterian Church on 6/6/1820.  This Mark Scanlon is apparently at the origin of several SCANTLAND families to which my wife belongs.

Mark and Catherine had at least two children:
* Sophie SCANLON married Michel TAILLIEUR
*Mark. SCANLON married Emilie MARTIN  (They had at least 10 children, 8 of them boys)
Both were married in St-Martin de'Ile-Jesus in 1836 (August 2) and 1839 (June 9) respectively. 

Mark SCANLON, the father, was then reported (in 1839) as staying in Ste-Genevieve de Pierrefond. 

There is a Francis SCANLON, listed in the 1858 Montreal directory as a 'clerk' at 98 Colborne who may have been a brother or cousin of Mark? 

I'm looking to find the parents of Mark SCANLON and Catherine BARRON / BOWEN (see BARRON query)as well as their country of origin if they were not born in the Province of Québec.

TATLOCK

related surnames: McARTHUR, LOUGHMAN, O'DONNELL

Thomas TATLOCK was born in 1860 in the UK and he married Mary McARTHUR in 1888 at St Patrick's, Montreal.

Thomas and Mary had the following children: 

* William Thomas TATLOCK born 1898
* Alice TATLOCK born ? (possibly born after William Thomas).

His wife Mary McARTHUR died in 1910. He remarried in 1910 or 1911 to Molly (also known as Helen) LOUGHMAN, maiden name O'DONNELL.

Thomas and Molly had the following children: 

* Thomas John TATLOCK born 1911, 
* Kathleen Catherine TATLOCK born 1913, 
* Emily TATLOCK born 1915, 
* James TATLOCK born 1916, 
* Gemma TATLOCK born 1922.

Thomas TATLOCK had also been married in 1879 in the UK, but he deserted his wife and children and did not divorce. He was a comedian and dancer on the stage, but he also worked as a waiter in taverns.

I don't think Thomas was Catholic as he wasn't when he was in England, but I think his children were Catholic as both his second and third wives were.

I would be really interested in details of any TATLOCK families in Montreal, as I have a feeling he would have gone to Montreal because he had relatives there. I only know he lived in Montreal between 1888 to about 1930.

THOMSON
Submitted by: Janet Packer (nee Thomson) jpacker@clara.co.uk

THOMSON family of ST LAMBERT 1840-1910
Searching for details of Thomson family originally from Scotland then sailed to Montreal Canada. 

My Great Grandfather James Charles THOMSON was Mayor of Saint Lambert from 1882 to 1886.  I have tried without success to find information about him for our family history. Can you help? It appears that, at that time, Council members named one of their number as mayor for a period of one year. For some reason my great-grandfather seems to have been an exception to this rule. I'm told that a Saint-Lambert resident may consult the council minutes for this period by appointment with the Assistant City Clerk (450-923-6531). Only in this way I could learn more about the events that took place during my great-grandfather's time as mayor.

James Charles THOMSON , who also owned a cabinetmaking business, and his wife Mary J.K. Thomson had the following known children born in Montreal:

* James THOMSON - b.15th Dec 1897, Montreal
* Violet Marguerite THOMSON  - b. 2nd October 1896, Monteal
* Hilda THOMSON - an older sister of the above - date and place of birth unknown.

The family returned to the UK early 1900s.

William THOMPSON: When he was married in Montreal (catholic) to Marie-Louise DUBOIS in 1813, he is said to be the son of John THOMPSON of Morpeth (Northumberland) and of the late Frances STOREY.  I have searched the records or all the town around Morpeth and have found neither his baptism nor his parent's marriage.  I have searched both Church of England and Non-conformist parishes, the IGI and Scots Origins.  I suspect they may have come from the Borders area of Scotland, as William's son will say later that he is of Scottish descent. (May be Border Irregular Marriage?).  My mother's great-grandmother was Sophie-Caroline THOMPSON, grand-daughter of William THOMPSON.

MARY ANN WOODWARD b. 1856 (not sure where yet) married Chas Martin BEALE at St. Judes, Montreal, in 1875 with the permission of her father ALEXANDER WOODWARD as well as the signature of  EMMA WOODWARD (not sure yet whether mother sister aunt?). She died 1927 and is buried at Mount Royal cemetery in the BEALE family plot. 

I have seen an ancestral file of an Emma WOODWARD whose father is Alexander WOODWARD  who went to Mass. USA to marry and live? and died in Montreal 1934 and is buried in  Mount Royal Cemetery but the address is no longer valid, it was submitted by Robert W. McKEOWN whom I'd like to get in touch with.

Submitted by: Karen Young Shreve shreve@sympatico.ca

I am looking for my great, great grandfathers 3 brothers: 
* Henry YOUNG born 1818 Avoch Scotland. 
* John YOUNG born 1823 in Avoch, Scotland
* and another John YOUNG born in 1824 in Avoch)

One of the brothers (which one I do not know) emigrated to Montreal prior to 1872. He had a son named Donald YOUNG who worked for the Montreal Gazette.  The other 2 brothers emigrated to New York.

When my  g g grandfather Simon YOUNG, and his son, William YOUNG emigrated in 1871,  they went first to New York and then on to Montreal, where they stayed with the Montreal brother.

My great grandfather William YOUNG worked for the railway for a while, before they moved to Ontario.

My ggg grandfather was Robert YOUNG a merchant in Ross & Cromarty, and held railway stock at the time of his death.   Many of my relatives worked for and helped build the CPR.

Can you help me  in locating any ZAPPA immigrants from 1860 to 1900 ? 
My grandfather was Agostinon ZAPPA who arrived from  L'Aquila, Italy with, I am told, two brothers.
He settled in Montreal while his brothers apparently moved on to the U.S.
