|William Harding (1745-1818) was a United Empire Loyalist from Newburgh, N.Y. who settled in Saint John in 1783. Legend has the family being of Irish descent (the family crest reads Londonderry) but I have been unable to trace anything prior to Newburgh.|
I have also begun to delve into my maternal side, namely the descendants of John MacIsaac a Highland Scot who migrated to Southwestern Newfoundland in the 19th century.
I would love to hear from anyone mentioned and am willing to share any information that I have.
