Name of creator
The custodial history of this fonds before it came to the Peninsula Heritage Inc. is largely unknown.
Scope and content
This fonds is broken down into four series, which are Historical Information, Miscellaneous, Correspondence, and Genealogical Information respectively. Contained within it are vital records that pertain to the family, histories and accounts, genealogical reports, family trees, and photographs. There is a gap in the records before the first census of the area in 1851. After that time, however, the family's presence in the area is well documented.
The documents in this fonds are in a relatively good condition.
Immediate source of acquisition
