Hi Jerri,

I have great news for you. I was able to find your Richard Twambly in Quebec, Canada. Born in Scotland (Acosse in French), Richard left Scotland, lived in Ireland, then moved to Quebec before 1825, and he is listed in the 1825 Canada East Census in the area of Saint-Athanase, Rouville, a former town in Quebec (today it is today part of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu). There are many Drouin records for this family who lived in Chambly/St. Johns/Richelieu. This is the same family line that intermarried with Jane Law and a Brownrigg.

Best Wishes, Sherry
