HI Nancy
I was born in Hamilton, Ontario. Went to school, entered Nursing in 1957, married Paul, my husband in 1960, have
daughter Patricia Anne born 24 September 1961
son Peter Douglas Paul born 30 April 1963
son Andrew James Gordon born 5 April 1966
daughter Sarah Jane born 11 November 1967.
We have 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.
My grandfather, Frederick Hayden Lumsden, was the son of William Lumsden, who was born in Wexford, Ireland.

John Lumsden, William and Francis's father, married Frances Allen from Wicklow. They had 5 boys and 2 girls born in Wexford, Ireland. They immigrated to Peterborough in 1831/2.
John Lumsden was in the 27th Regiment of Foot. He was present under Wellington at Waterloo and survived.
He received a free grant of land in Dummer from the Government for services rendered as the paymaster.

I do not know the qualifications for a Jacobite, only that I have a copy of a letter from William Lumsden. In the letter it states that the Lumsdens were Jacobites, from the High English church. He then mentions that his father, William Lumsden("Army Surgeon")was buried in St. Sebastian's English church on the north side in Wexford, Ireland.

I have received the forms from Wexford, Ireland. I plan to fill them out only to find if William Lumsden's burial plot is in Wexford. I would also like to know about birth dates etc. wife, children etc.

William's father was Alexander Lumsden "of the Fleet"
Alexander's father was George Lumsden "gentleman".

All the above "quotes" are from William Lumsden's letter to my great uncle George Lumsden.
I would like to hear more about you, Nancy.
