Hi Graham
We went to Hamilton/Burlington Beach in the summers(from
1938 to 1963). I recall your family very well.
I received from Frances Lumsden Swann a copy of a letter
written by Rev. William Lumsden to George Lumsden (his son).
This letter was written in 1880. I gave the original back to Frances in the 1970's. Arthur Disraeli Lumsden and
Frances Lumsden, I believe, were brother and sister.

In the letter William Lumsden wrote, he tells about his heritage. If you would like a copy, I would be most happy
to send you one.

I have been searching for the spouses of William Lumsden
and Alexander Lumsden for a long time. Alexander's father
was George Lumsden (don't know spouse).
I know from the letter that William Lumsden,(father of
John Lumsden) was buried in
St. Selskar's English Church cemetry in Wexford, Ireland.
The Battle of Culloden, in 1745 sealed the fate of the
Lumsdens. They were stauch supporters of Bonnie Prince Charlie. After the '45 they were in the service of the
Old East India Service. After the '45 they also left Scotland.
