The Oakey Family of New Hamburg, ON Canada

Updated February 1, 2002

About Our Family Research


I have started to do some research and recording of the Oakey geneology and history (January, 2002)

What I have so far, is that the Oakeys hail from Wales, especially the Gloucestershire area, and the Forest of Dean.

My father, Rev. Edward Sidney Oakey emigrated to Canada in 1952, and 'walked the streets of Toronto' looking for a job until his feet bled'. My mother and older sister Julie arrived in New York on September 13, 1953, the day Julie turned one. They rode the train to Toronto, to be reunited with Dad.

Margaret's family(Reuber) is much bigger than the Oakey's and so they have a separate tree.
