William (b. 1796) and Mary (b.1810) Raycroft were from Ireland, and unfortunately I cannot find out anything more concerning them than that....they emigrated to Ontario, Canada probably before their first daughter, Rachel, was born in 1831. They had Eliza Jane, Mary Ann, William, Margaret, Sarah, Matthew James, Hannah, and William in Kingston, Ontario. I have more on who some of the children married. The name has been listed in censuses and marriage records as: Roycraft, Raycroft, and Reogcraft. In most documents it shows the family was from Ireland. In one, it shows the father was from France!
