Hammond
Rob Ireland
I am pursuing the origins of the Hammonds of the Dufferin and Muskoka regions in Ontario. My Hammonds are from Dufferin ( William Hammond and Jane Westover ) and we have no surviving male heirs to the surname Hammond. Another branch of the name settled in the Muskoka region. They were John Hammond (1841-1916) and Isabella Harriet Craig (1844-1914). Their offspring are numerous. I am looking for a male heir of this branch who is amenable to having a DNA swab test analyzed at Family Tree DNA. I will pay for an Autosomal DNA ( Family Finder) and a yDNA 37 marker test for a cousin who is willing.The male offspring of John and Isabella were: Wesley, Egbert, John J., Robert E., and William H. THEIR male offspring include: Reginald, Ron, Ross, Anson, Robert, Calvin, Elmer, Aubrey, Alonzo, Cecil, and Orvil. If you know any male Hammonds who you think might Spring from these names, please refer them to this inquiry. They can contact me at pmulder@oricom.ca
Thanks

Humphrey Hutton
Melissa Plavins
Hello, My 3rd Great Grandmother was Margaret Jane Humphrey(s)/Humphries-depending on Census taker. She married George Graham and they lived in Cartwright and Coboconk. Before that her family lived in Darlington I believe. That is where George and Margaret were married, 19th June 1871. She was born about 1852 and died 14th May 1911 in Toronto. I am wondering if The town of Humphrey may have anything to do with that same family. I have just started researching this line. Regarding the Huttons, my Great Grandfather, Robert Hutton immigrated from Inverkeithing Scotland sometime between 1901 and 1909 when he was married in Toronto. He died in 1957. I am wondering if they came here to be with family that had immigrated earlier.

Lawson
Dan Shire
My dad's paternal line includes the Scottish Lawson family that settled in Concession A of Humphrey Township, near Trout Lake. My great-grandfather was Richard Lawson, his father and grandfather were Cyrus and Rankin Lawson. They had homes near Trout Lake and leased or owned a number of other lots in the area which I think were for logging rights.
