Hello everyone! I would like to wish ALL KIRTON's and extended FAMILY'S a very Happy New Year and much success in finding OUR Ancestors. I am still searching for all forms of spelling:
KIRTON/KERTON/KIRKTON/CURTAIN/KEARTON.I am interested in ALL KIRTON CONNECTIONS,so please feel free to e-mail me and ask away(smile)I know we are all connected at some point.
I am still searching for parents and siblings of WILLIAM KIRTON b 1823 England? Ireland/Scotland/Wales?
William died December 13,1910 in Scott Township,Ontario,Canada. Does anyne know what ship brought him here to Canada and the year? Perhaps he landed in the UNITED STATES and then traveled up to Ontario,Canada?
William married Frances Elizabeth FENWICK on 6 April 1846 in Bond Head,Ontario,Canada. Frances Elizabeth Fenwick was born on 6 March 1828 in England.Died on 22 March 1915 in lot 5,Concessio 1 Scott Township,,Ontario. Buried on 24 Mar 1915 in Harman Cemetary.
On the Marriage certificate it appears that the name is spelled CURTAIN and not KIRTON. ALL of his children were named with the spelling of KIRTON.
They had the following children: i George KIRTONb 18 Feb 1847 Died 9 Mar 1937 ii Mary Jane KIRTONb 17 Nov 1848. died 26 May 1932 iii John albert KIRTONb 13 Sep 1850. Died 12 Jun 1937 iv Martha KIRTONb 23 Jul 1852 Died 19 Nov 1913 v Rachel KIRTONb 24 May 1854 Died 13 Feb 1888 vi Mary KIRTONb 4 Sep 1856. Doed 9 Sep ? year viiWilliam KIRTONb 6 Jan 1859. died 6 Jun 1950 viii Albert KIRTONb 19Feb 1861 Died 25 Mar1906 ix ElizabethKIRTONb 19 Nov 1862 Died 16 Jun 1953 x Seth KIRTONb 8 Sep1864 died 28 Mar 1952 xi Roxanna KIRTONb 5 Jul 1868 Died 6 Nov 1898 xii Louise KIRTON (has just come to my attention this week) xiii Robert Fenwick KIRTONb10 Nov 1872 Died 17 Nov 1898
All of these children were bornin Ontario,Canada. I would be more than willing to share further information about the Kirton Family.
I have names and dates of spouse,children etc.,right up to present,but I also have alot of banks too.
Some of these KIRTONS Now reside across CANADA.Also there are many KIRTON'S in the UNITED STATES,which I would like to learn about.I have a great deal of information on the MORRISETTE Family as well.
Does anyone have any information on a JAMES KIRTON who married ELIZABETH GRAY in 1845 at Dunkirk,Ontario?
I do hope this helps some of you to fill in the blanks.
I must also thank Dennis Galley who was responsible for collecting this data,which he so generouly gave me a copy.
I do not take any credit here. I only thought it should be shared by everyone.
