hi everyone, Im looking for a great uncle of mine who I though had emigrated to the USA sometime between 1871 and 1881, but it turned out not to be. Ive told there was a THOMAS HEWITT in the NEW BRUNSWICK area at one time who was born in England and did become a sheriff. My THOMAS was born 9 Jan 1858 in Liverpool England the son of JOSHUA and ELLEN HEWITT of Liverpool.
I dont know the exact date he emigrated from England but I believe that he became a Sheriff of sorts, and ive just been told that there were quite a few THOMAS HEWITTs living in the area who came from England at some time, and im hoping that someone might just know of him and they could give me some info about him whether he married etc. I do believe from relatives that he died during a rather bad electrical storm at some time, but the information about him emigrating to the USA which I got from the same relative, turned out not to be so. AS i cant find on any census return in the UK after 1871, nor can i find a death registration for him, nor a marriage registration in the UK it just could be that he did come to Canada. I hope there is someone who can help me out with this ThanksTED.
