red mail Stephenson
I'm new to this computer stuff--but I did some searching in regard to the history of my last name 20 years ago (doing it the hard way, micro film, regular mail etc). AT that time, what I seemed to find out was -- my G.G.G. Grandfather William Stephenson was born at Doncaster - parish records state: children of Wm & Alice Stephenson - Henry baptised May 1813, William Sept 21st 1814 & Edwin Carter in 1816 (don't know what happened to him) The parents here are found in Cantley parish: Wm Stevenson married Alice Carter, Jan 21, 1811 - same parents seem to have died real young (at Doncaster) I know from records that Henry went to Cantley parish near Branton (just south east of Doncaster) the 1861 census show him married and working as an Agricultural Labourer for his uncle Wm Carter - Henry died Dec 22, 1882. Later census show him at 10 Doncaster Road, farmer of 8 acres - his children were Eliz. & Eleaner & son Thomas. Brother William seems to have got moved over to around Hull (east riding) and is found in the Cottingham parish, marrying Mary Scott Feb 16 1838 - same parish records show 6 children born to them - although in the 1851 census they are found in Stoneferry, Sutton parish. At this point in 1854 or 55 they came to Canada (near Hamilton Ontario - later moving to Strathroy Ont.). I believe 2 other families came with them (relatives): Edward Nicholls & Wm Withernwick. Looking to further my search -- I wonder if Wm who died young at Doncaster was born else where ?? Note: the first one born to William & Mary Stephenson after they came to Canada (Edward) went back to England for a trip in the summer of 1882 - he was going again in 1886, but died in the spring of same year -- his death notice stated that he thought he was going to marry in Eng. but he never made it ... SAD.
