My genealogy research encompasses my paternal lines Fearncombe, Harley, Barley, & Steffens and my maternal lines Hyde, Menary, Turpel, & Patchett.
On my paternal side, we are relatively new to North America, each of my grandparents' families having arrived in Canada in 1910 from England. The photo below is of my great-grandparents, Henry Fearncombe (b. 1858) and Lucy (Harley) Fearncombe (b. 1860) and my grandfather, John Henry Fearncombe, b.1895 from Wolverhampton, England.
On the maternal side, we are relatively old Canadian, the oldest line, the Turpels, having arrived in Nova Scotia around 1750 and the others arriving in Canada between 1830 & 1850. Like many others, most of my maternal line immigrants to Canada were escaping the Irish potato famine. The photo below is of my great-great-grandparents, Isaac Menary (b. 1833) and Margaret (McCormack)Menary (b. 1833) from County Tyrone, N. Ireland.
If these names appear familiar or you are just interested, please explore - search through the surname index or look at the pedigree and descendancy charts or read about Wolverhampton's favourite son Henry Fearncombe. If you have any questions about linkages, contact me and I'll be happy to discuss them!
