Welcome to my family tree web page. My research starts with Robert MUNCASTER b. 1791 in London, England. His first wife and the mother of his children was Elizabeth TARCEY. His second wife was Elizabeth Theresa GABB. He was a watch gilder there. One of his sons, Charles William, my great great grandfather settled in Peterborough, Ontario. Robert William, son of Charles, relocated his family from Peterborough to Charleston, South Carolina. They later moved to Florence, South Carolina. Robert's daughter, Helen Edburgh married Arthur Milton SMITH of Montreal and settled there.
I have not yet determined if Robert MUNCASTER of London is related to the MUNCASTER watchmakers of Isle of Man.
Another branch of my family begins with Joseph SMITH b.Sept.8,1804 in St.Alkmund's,Derby,England. Joseph SMITH m. Mary Ann HICKLING. He was a surveyor. Joseph and Mary Ann emigrated with their family to Victoria, Australia. One of their sons, Joseph SMITH Jr. went to Quebec City with the Royal Engineers. Joseph married Phoebe HEATLEY in Quebec. Joseph Jr. was a civil engineer.
Other branches of this tree include BURKE,KEALEY & DELANEY.Other collateral lines include GIBSON and HORTON. It is a constant work in progress so check back for updates.
