Our family began in February 1954 with the marriage of Shirley May Cruickshank to Robert [Bob] Cyril Mundell ORRICK, both of Victoria, BC. From time to time, family gatherings have been held and each time they were, the numbers of attendees grew. Additionally, family reunions of the family of John [b22 Jun 1866, Ompah, Ontario] and Elizabeth [Ryder] [b.15 Dec 1872, Snowroad Station, Ontario] Mundell have been held at various locations in Saskatchewan and British Columbia. In December 2009, when this was written, John and Elizabeth plus their 11 children have all gone to their Lord leaving their grandchildren as the senior members of the John and Elizabeth Mundell family living. Not all of the cousins live in Canada with at least one residing in California. The majority live in British Columbia, Saskatchewan or Ontario. All are decendents of William Mundell [b.1787, Ireland and Susannah Gilmour, b. Ireland; John Mundell, b.21 Feb 1807,Antrim County, Ireland and Mary Mcahan, b1810, Ireland; William Gilmour Mundell [b.08 Feb 1842, Washburn, Ontario] and Mary Jane Ryder [b.1841, Kingston, Ontario].
