Hi: I am researching a Jane Crosby who married John Sotheran (1818-1922). According to her death cert her parents were Ford Crosby and Susan Carter. Jane was born in Dublin and I have found a reference to Ford Crosby marrying Margaret Carter in Dublin 1813 and a John Crosby married a Martha Carter in Dublin.
I am trying to find a connection to Jane Crosby as I have a Henrietta Crosby married to William Faulkner abt 1844 in Dublin. They came to Canada abt 1847 and settled in Simcoe County and some in Huron County. They use the name Ford and Crosby and Lewis as forenames in their descendants which is what the Jane Crosby-John Sotheran family did as well.
In looking at the Sotheran family I also found John Carter b 1808 married Ellen Bell at St. James Cathedral in Toronto. J. Southeran was a witness along with James Hamilton. Ellen is listed as a resident of Essa Simcoe county. Married 25 Jan 1837.
There was also an Edward Carter of Tecumseh who married a Mary Jane Manning of Toronto . Witness J. Dorr and Thomas M. Manning. Married 5 Apr 1837.
On the 1851 Peel, Wellington county census the John Sotheran/Ester Sotheran family are living next door to the John Carter/Ellen Carter family.
