Hi Carole,

Right you are! Many times what I plan and what I end up doing... Yes, I went from a topic to another and got to talk about research, students, Univ. of Calabria etc. And, injury to knees from tennis racket... well.

By the way, doing research I run into all sorts of bits of information which somehow I store , have no idea why but later they pop up, just weird.

I have 'one' that may be interesting to you.I expected you to find out, guess it did not connect. Did you wonder why you had a few F.W.'s named in a branch you're looking at? Is that important?

Well, well! Again! I am not using the PAD. Bye. Sophia

Information overload I think they call it.... I suffer from it all the time. Too many pots on the boil at once so I NEVER seem to manage to complete anything.

As for all the Frederick Williams in my branch of the Edmeds - well quite honestly it seems to me that every branch of Edmeds (and there are a lot of them) seem to have Frederick Williams... I'm conviced that they did it to confuse me a hundred years or so later! One large branch from the Elham area in Kent had several as well - many of whom were born around the same time as my great grandfather. Took me a long time to eliminate them and to actually find my long lost maternal grandmother. But did you find something specific about the three generations with that name in my tree?

Hi!
I am back! I was looking for my notes, not at this place. However, this is what I recall: few years back I did some research on Virginian families, around 1800s, originally from England.

One family was STAPLETON, land owners, one daughter married to a F.W., a naval officer, they lived in London.

The information I had it seemed to imply that the Stapleton family had moved to the colony for religious reasons, i.e. not Church of England?

Later F.W. had many important postings in the Navy, and in govt. Was never knighted, and it was implied that it was due to his connections in Virginia. Religion? the problem? Wife American?

I remember that in one of your posts the name Stapleton appeared , and then the mention of all the boys baptized F.W. And nothing more.

Is it possible to connect the dots? A Stapleton relation?

May just be nothing, but it is the sort of puzzle I love to play with. I had planned to tell you - but then I thought it would have been more fun for you to find out, and play with it!

I engage in a lot of strenuous and boring research, and need some playing around !

Sorry I've only just got back to answering this Sophia...

I've been busy writing the draft copies of Episode Four of the Naughty Nina Saga and my new lead off from that which will 'briefly' cover what I know about some of the members of the Edmed family. I have started with Frederick William , Nina's father. He was the one who married a Stapleton in Halifax, Nova Scotia when he was posted there. She was the daughter of a Canadian and an Irish girl.

I now have his full military service records and he was just a long serving bandsman in the Royal Irish Rifle Regiment. He rose from 'boy soldier' at age 13 to be a sargeant at the end of his first 12 years service.

Nothing so grand as a naval officer or any hint of a knighthood Not talking . But thank you for thinking about a possible link...it is often just such snippets that can lead to some real discoveries in genealogy isn't it?

Carole,

I called a friend of mine, from an old Canadian loyalist family , and historian herself, and she confirmed what I knew - that many loyalist families from the south were wealthy tobacco growers, and after the British defeat they lost their lands and moved to Canada, and some back to England . A few of the Lee family moved to Brazil.

The R.N .Frederick William married Charlotte Stapleton in England in 1828, one of many Stapleton sisters (somehow they had more daughters to marry and endow). It was the custom then that the first one to marry would help the others....

I am convinced that your first F.W. must have been baptized in honor of the F.W. marrried to a Stapleton, that was a custom, and his mother was a relation - either a sister or niece. Do you have his baptism data? And his
mother's name, etc. ? No other explanation for so many F.W.s!

Could it be that the Irish girl was a catholic? Until much later catholics could not hold commisions, but could serve.

My friend has a lot of data on the Loyalist movement in U.S. and Canada, I will talk to her again!

Well, it's intriguing to say the least!

Well, Auguri!

Sophia
