Please visit the Biography Board for a SECORD update.
I am researching the Secord family. Apparently Daniel Secord had a mill in Townsend Twp,Norfolk county in the late 1800 He had moved from Brant county with his family.
My great grandmother Emma Loamma Edy was the daughter of Peter Holly Edy and Mary Ann Secord. Mary Ann was the daughter of Daniel Secord and Almira Peet.She had 5 brothers.
Mary Ann Secord and Peter Edy were married in 1869 by Rev W.H. Haviland pastor of the Villa Nova Regular Baptist Church.
Peter Edy owned a grist mill and had traded this property to a James Haviland.He afterwards bought land from Geo.Myers and Johnny Trobridge making his land 100 acres.
In a letter written by my great grandmother ,her parents had moved to Alberton from Towsend twp,Norfolk Co in 1870.
I am working on my United Empire loyalist certificate for the Secord family and need to know where this particular family is buried.
The Sicard family came originally from La Rochelle,Anjou province in France and emigrated to New York state . Ambroise Sicard was a silk merchant . He and his 5 children were residents of New Rochelle, New York until the American revolution . They moved further down the Hudson river. The spelling of the name changed with the influences of the various ethnic communities. Our branch used Secord and the other branch chose Seacord.
There were several Secords that fought with Colonel Butler's Rangers against the American patriots. The family set down roots in Niagara,they were given grants of land and began settlement there.From Niagara, Daniel Secord moved to Brant County .
