Hello Graham: Thank you for your reply. I had been told that William Lumsden and Frances Hayden had 11 children, but had records for only 9. You have given me 2 more names, Charles Alexander and Grace Alexander.Thanks. My father Ralph Hayden Lumsden, the son of Frederick Hayden Lumsden. I understand from the 1881 Canadian Census record, that Frederick Hayden Lumsden and Paul Edwin Lumsden were twins.(They were recorded as both being born in 1859 in the USA)
Frances Hayden's parents were William Hayden and Jane Kersop William and Jane had 7 children in England and 2 children in the Cobourg area. I haveFrances being born in Northumberland, England.
I have emailed a John(Time)Lumsden from Guelph. William Lumsden's father, John Lumsden, came to Canada in 1831 to the Peterborough area. I have quite a bit of information, however, you may also have the same info.
Do you have any idea of the names of John Lumsden and Frances Allen's children?I have William Lumsden b. 04 Nov 1811 Wexford, Ireland, George Lumsden b. 1816 Wexford, Ireland and Francis Thomas Lumsden b. 04 Jan 1822 Wexford, Ireland. There were 2 more sons and 2 daughters, They all emigrated to Peterborough area in 1831.
I have also received emails from a descendant of Francis Thomas Lumsden and a descendant of William Hayden.
If you have more information, I would appreciate it. Thanks. Regards, Barbara (Lumsden)Southall
