hello,

Hoping someone can help me - this is as far back as i can find for these ancestors.This Blackett moved to Canada probably rince Edward island since my Blaketts are from there.

"A Schurman book states that the Blackett’s emigrated from Durham, England in 1789, while other sources read that he was sent out by the British Government in 1785 to purchase lumber for the shipyards in England."

Mike
