My Devon great-great-great-grandparents arrived in Saint John, New
Brunswick, Canada, in 1832. They settled in Kings County, New Brunswick.
Here's what I believe I know, but supporting documentation would be most
John CHOWN, baptized 07 Aug 1803 in Sidbury, Devon (Genuki?).
I have his parents as Robert CHOWN and Jane WARREN.
And Mary CARSLAKE, b. 05 Apr 1807 in Sidbury (England Births and
I have her parents as Richard CARSLAKE and Elizabeth (Betty) WICKER /
WHECKER / WHICKER
John CHOWN and Mary CARSLAKE were married on 06 May 1825 in Saint Paul,
Exeter, Devon (Pallot's Marriage index for England, 1780-1837)
Their son James CHOWN was born in Devon in 1831, and they went on to have
six more children in Canada.
I am descended from their son John CARSLAKE CHOWN, born 28 Apr 1834, in New
It would be great to connect with anyone who is researching these surnames
(including variant spellings).
