I would be interested in hearing from anyone who descends from these two
couples from Petrockstow:-
Joseph and Mary Essery nee Lake (married 1808) who emigrated to Usborne,
Huron County in the 1840s.
Joseph and Sally/Sarah Risdon nee Moase (married 1830) who emigrated in 1855
with most of their children:-
Priscilla c 1831
Joseph c 1832
Jane c 1835
Rowland c 1837
Clara c 1839
Ann c 1841
William c 1844
John c 1849
They end up in Southwold, St Thomas and Elgin, Canada.
Equally if anyone knows of any other families who left Petrockstow in the
1840s and 1850s that would be helpful. I am not descended from these
families and am interested in tracing them forwards in Canada, not further
back in Devon.
