The Wycotts of the Picton area have been documented by David Taylor at the Prince Edward County Archives in Picton, Ont. Francis Wycott, Treasury Loyalist, procured his Freemasonry certificates in London, England before immigrating in 1792. These parchment certificates are held in the PE Co archives. I have extensively researched Francis & Mary Wycott and their descendents in Kingston, Odessa, and Picton. While only a bachelor, Francis Wycott was one of the heterogenous group of Treasury sponsored immigrants to Upper Canada in 1792. I am slowly developing biographical sketches of the hundred families. We need to swap details.

Thanks, Thomas. I wonder whether, given the date, Francis was a UEL. I know that Adelbert's father was Andrew and I've found indications that Andrew and another man named Francis Wycott were joint owners of Wycott House, which I assume to be an inn. According to the 1871 census, the two gentlemen were 56 and 58, which makes me suspect they might be brothers. The same census lists Nelson (36), Andrew (33), and Elgin (22)and I've also found an Adelaide (f) Wycott in the marriage records, but I've not (so far) been able to establish whether these folks are related or not. The book "The Settler's Dream", mentions the "Wycott/Turner House 1863, Lot 9 Concession 2 South of Bay of Quinte" and the "Wycott/Fraser house c 1842 Lot 8 Concession 2 South of Bay of Quinte", both built by Andrew. Adelbert was my great grandmother's first husband. Happy to trade what details I have. Contact me by e-mail if you think we might have info to share.

My grandfather, Stephen Finley Turner was born to John (Henry) Turner and Fanny (Frances) Brooks at Carrying Place, Prince Edward County, July 19, 1863. The Family oral history out in B.C. and Alberta goes no further Back. Any clues?

I have been searching for McKinnons in Kenyon. Ontario Genweb has an excellent site for Glengarry. I have been through the St Finnian's record base. I was in Alexandria last summer and took a rubbing and photos of a gravestone which reads John McKinnon died May 13, 1845, aged 84yrs. His 24 year old son Duncan is also buried here. He died June 9, 1846. John was from the Isle of Eigg. I am just getting back on the trail so do not have info in front of me. I do have documentation of his arrival in Canada

Hello,
Is it possible your dates for Fanny of 1759-1863 should be 1795-1863? I have a Fanny Brooks d/o George and Ann Brooks her birth year would fit more with 1795 Fanny's brothers and sisters would be born between 1789 and 1810. George and Ann lived in L& A co and PE co. - Mary

Sorry for the confusion. My Fanny Brooks is said to be the daughter of John Brooks and Catherine (Chase?). Fanny was born about 1837, married John / Henry Turner around 1860 and died July 11, 1869.
