I am also a Pecknold. My father was the youngest of the Pecknold brothers and sisters (seventeen)
. Alfred Abraham Pecknold was my Grandfather. Abraham was one of my father older brothers. My father Wilfred was the first one born in Canada in 1914. I am the youngest of the first Generation of Cousins 56. The next generation of cousins were 100 + at last count. I don't know how many third cousins.
I don't know who if anyone has an official family history. However I do know that Alfred Abraham was the last of the Pecknold family. He and my Grandmonther moved to Weignwright Alberta and are both found in the cemetary there. The Maj. as everyone in the family called him was in the Royal Irish Rifles. He was the last RSM of the Royal Irish Rifles in Poona India.
I hope this helps.
