I have been researching the Risdon family in Devon UK for 8 years and have recently discovered two branches who emigrated to Canada in the 1850's.Joseph and Sarah Risdon born Petrockstowe Devon UK settled St Thomas and their family 1)John, married Jenny Fulton 1872 St Thomas (son E.Fulton Risdon 1880 was an emminent plastic surgeon) 2)William married Mary Brotherhood 1865 St Thomas 3)Clara married James Balkwill 1860 4) Jane married Joseph Spackman 1855 Southwold ,Ann married John White 1861 St Thomas 5)Joseph married Sarah Ann Fairweather and settled in Wingham Huron The second family were James and Martha Risdon born Shebbear Devon UK and their family James and John who both remained single and Joseph who married Mary Graham 1864 Eldon Victoria and Jane who married James Parsons in 1864 in Lindsay Victoria .They all farmed at Mariposa Victoria.
I would very much like to hear from any descendents of these two families to discover more about the family fortunes and also hopefully to be of help in filling in a lot of the Devon background for them. Mary Gaul nee Risdon
