My great gr grandfather was John King Fairfield Sharp son of Gilbert P Sharp and Elizabeth Harris of Ontario Canada. I am trying to see if there is a connection to the Fairfield family. The only mention of a John King Fairfiled that I have been able to locate is the following.
“RG9 1B2, vol. 29 Militia records (NAC):
1837: Markham and Vaughn Troop of Volunteer Cavalry under command of Capt. Hugh Stewart lists a Sergeant Langstaff, but the first name is impossible, but must be Miles as he is the only one that fits.3
Miles Langstaff married Charity Stille Langstaff, daughter of James Langstaff and Larinia Shortnell, on 20 October 1835, at Markham, ON (Charity was his cousin.). IGI gives date as 20 Oct 1835 Markham Twp, York, Ontario
The original film of the record proves this date to be correct, film #248, vol #2, June 2001.
