Howdy folks. As you can see my last name is Targett and my branch of the family comes from Fredericton New Brunswick Canada. As far as I know, our branch of the family started with two brothers coming from England.My branch has cousins all through the Maritimes.They settled in Kent County New Brunswick and stayed there a while - in fact there is a Targettville quite near Richibucto New Brunswick - although there are no Targett's living there any more. This part of the Province is very French Canadien and being High Anglicans - as my great-grandfather told the story - they didn't get along too well. Anyway - they moved down to Fredericton and had a farm quite close to what is now the Experimental Farm. The Targett's - in my branch of the family - were farmers in the summer and loggers in the winter - as a lot of people in New Brunswick were.I have a lot of stories about that. As for Targett's moving to the States - I'm sure that they did.I know for a fact that there are many Targett's in Australia - Tazmania in fact. Hope this was of some help - write back if you have any more questions. I know are Family Bible has a list in the front - so I could have my grand father check it - he's 71.
