Bertram Sellon - A Canadian Connection
Posted by: Andrew Sellon Date: May 24, 1998 at 14:06:36
  of 153

I know of at least one person in this group who is interested in this SELLON group only because of Bertram's decision to migrate across to Canada, (and she has had this info for three years). I hope it may be of some interest to others.
Just three generations, from Bertram's father.
I have no idea where the names 'Gore' or 'Booth' came from. (There is a well known family of Gore-Booths, but as yet I have found no link.)

Is this type of posting too long? if so, please complain, moan or make youself heard.

I still hope to hear something about SELLON arrivals in N.S.. I have a feeling they probably came in via New England, and possibly before that from Jamestown. Dont ask me why, but I think they could be linked in to an Andrew SELLON from Devon.

Yours aye. Andrew.
