I'm still puzzled as to what you are looking for since you were given those contact details in June 2009.

So you think William John Lynn came to Canada from Ireland then?

What year was he born and do you know when he might have come here?

Karen
Gandley (but known as Stanley in Canada)- Ireland to Birmingham<br />Ball, Kempson & Franklin - Birmingham<br />Shorter - Surrey<br />Dyer - Devon<br />Dawkins - Co. Cork, Ireland<br />Heffernan - Ireland
Huck - Alsace, France
Reinhart - Baden, Germany
Bowman & Ellis - England
Etheridge - Gloucestershire

Who all came to Canada in a little row boat, clap clap, clap your hands!!

hi karen  the only thing that i know about him is that he was born in 1871 in edenderry portadown . i know he was a sir kight as when i was achild i lived with my grandmother in portadown for a while i saw a certificate on the wall saying that he was a sir knight . i ask my grandmother about this and was told i was to young to know any thing about it. my father did not talk about him i got the feeling there was bad blood between them some thing to do with my two half sister,s who i think went to live in canada. i think he may have gone with them. zazazoo

"Sir Knight" is a title within the R.B.P. and has nothing to do with anything outside the organisation.
