I would like any information on William Bruce Ritchie who was
born in Nova Scotia Canada. I think he was born in the early 1800's.
I would like any information on any Ritchie's in that region
or in later years in or near Walkerton County Ontario. In the early 1900's
they moved west to homestead in Saskatchewan.

My last name is Ritchie and my Greatgrandfather William B. Ritchie married a woman from Amherst, Nova Scotia in 1840 and he was born in Albert County, New Brunswick and possibly grew up there, he married Rebecca Brownell in Amherst, Nova Scotia. They lived near Moncton, New Brunswick. I have a lot of information about them and some of my other ancestors in New Brunswick and would be glad to share it with you if you are interested.

My great grandfather Charles Ritchie was born in Northern Island, his father John and mother Jane were born there. I have located a John Ritchie, born in Coleraine, Northern Ireland about 1800 but the person who did the research said his wife was an Eliza McKay and they had a Charles etc. which are all my decendants. But I have a copy of the marriage certificate where Charles listed his mother as Jane. I've tried to contact the researcher but to no avail. Please let me know if these are the Ritchie's you are looking for and we can exchange data. e-mail me at juken333@aol.com

Hi June!
Thanks for your e-mail message about some ancestors that you have by the name of Ritchie. My great-grandfather Ritchie was born in 1811 and his father was from some place in Ireland possibly Northern Ireland as I was told that the Ritchie name came from that area. The names that you told me about could have been related to my great-grandfather's father. My e-mail address is:lritchie13@shaw.ca
