Re: Looking for Cole ancestry & relatives
You asked if I had any idea where our Cole relatives came from. Our records show from Slapton Devon and Holsworthy, Devon England. There may be some info from Bradworthy Town ,Devonshire, as a number of people that came over with them were from there.
Samuel Cole lived in England until 1843, when he emmigrated to America.(CANADA)
He was a shoemaker with a business of considerable size.
The 1881 Canadian Census (St Thomas, Elgin East, Ontario, ) lists him as 87 years old, Occupation: Gentleman, married and of English Origin. Religion Baptist. Head of Household Alex Henderson. His son in law. (this places his birthdate as 1794) Christened 29 September 1794 in Holsworthy,Devon England.
