I found this record at the LDS site: William Walker married in Sept. 21, 1685 in Annapolis, Nova Scotia, a Mary Sanderson. Now the wedding in and of itself is interesting but what drew my attention was the date and place. Let me back up and tell you of a postscript, hand written at the bottom of the Walker Cemetery transcription in NC, I found that had Robert Walker and his family buried there. The postscript was written by a descendant of Robert Walker, a Miss Myrtle Walker. She writes: Robert Walker Came From England To Canada, Then From Canada To North Carolina On Two Horses. (Miss Walker is a sister of George Thomas Walker). Now, a couple points. First, there is the trend to name the first born son after the husband's father. Second, I had heard rumors before that my eldest Walker, William (father of the Robert buried in the cemetery mentioned above) went BACK to Canada during/after the Revolution to the Niagara region in Ontario. I have researched, as I know many others have, Niagara, Norfolk, in Ontario and NC, extensively for any records that would lead to my William and Sarah's parents. All the records or histories I had seen for Ontario only went back to 1763 when it seems serious exploration started then jumps to 1783 when land plots were being drawn up. My William obtained his in 1793-95 as a UEL. But we have all drawn blanks as far as pushing the family back further. So when I found this date of marriage in 1685, in Nova Scotia, it put a new light on the problem of finding my William Sr. parents. I have read when Nova Scotia was first being colonized, it was being settled as early as the 1400-1500, it was alot bigger then it currently is. It was split in 1783 and New Foundland was formed. I did a couple surface scans of Nova Scotia and New Foundland, and I came up with a few mentions of Walkers. Let me list a few things I have found so far. 1. In the book, "The Sword and The Grail" by Andrew Sinclair, states Henry St. Clair landed in what is now Nova Scotia in 1398. 2. Some place names in Nova Scotia are: Walker Brook, Walker's Head, Walker's Hill, Walker's Lake and Walkerville. 3. From the files of Donald R. Walker, William Henry Walker b. Yorkshire, Eng served in the English Army, retired to Canada after the service. Three of his sons were in the NW Mounted Police: Henry Walker- reg.no. 308, Robert Walker- reg.no. 3829 and William Walker- reg.no. 3922. Another son, Donald's grand-father, James Nattris Walker served in the 86th Nova Scotia Highlanders. Now I have to wonder if I should shift my attention to Nova Scotia and New Foundland. Would appreciate any information as to where to find online information about the early families for this area around 1700 and forward.
