Ireland / Alexander Wilson/Mary Anne Reynolds
« on: Thursday 04 August 11 19:54 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for information on my gggrandparents Alexander Wilson and May Anne Reynolds. From what I have been able to find out on the Ancestry website. Alexander was born sometime between 1825 and 1827 and Mary Anne was born around 1829. They married and immigrated to Canada around 1847/8.
They moved to Ontario Canada in the Simcoe area and had 14 children.
Now I do not have the names of their parents, the area where they were born or any of their siblings names. All that I have is that they were Weslyan Methodist. I do not know if knowing their religion will help at all.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Hi Debbie, thank you for this information. On the Ancestry website I have found this information. If you look at the censuses from 1871 to 1901 it shows Alexander and Mary-Anne with different birth dates or approximate birth dates. I have tried to figure out which is which and I think I have figured it out. The unfortunate thing is that this information only show Canadian information and nothing about them prior to arriving in Canada. I am trying to find out about them before they came to Canada.

I am not sure if the Alexander Wilson from Beeton Simcoe is the same one as mine. I have tried searching the Irish records that they have on the ancestry website but no luck. I am hoping that I can find some links here or find someone else working on this line. I appreciate any help I can get.
Thank you again.

I also want to thank the moderator for your articles. I look forward to reading them. I have come quite far since I first started my family tree but searching an area that I have no information on is frustrating. Any advice one gives is greatly taken and used.
Thank you again

Canada Lookup Request / Alexander Wilson/ Mary-Anne Reynolds of Ireland

I am trying to find out any information on Alexander Wilson born 1825 in Ireland and his wife Mary-Anne Reynolds born 1829 in Ireland. I believe they married in Ireland then came to Canada in or around 1847. I found an immigration record showing a Alex Wilson and Mary-Anne Wilson, with the correct ages, arriving in 1847. They ended up in the Simcoe, Ontario area. They had 14 children.

I do not have any information on them prior to their arrival in Canada. The Canadian Censuses that I have found show their birth years and the approximate time of their arrival but nothing at all from Ireland.

I am their gg-grandson from their son William James Wilson born September 21, 1865 in Simcoe South, Ontario Canada, who married Jane Isabella Knowles Dec 27, 1892. Their son Howard Alvin Wilson in the father of my mother.
Any help or information on them would be greatly appreciated, My grandparents never spoke of any of Howard's family so finding things out has been difficult.
Thank you,
