Hi Paula,
My branch was from Scotland and came to Canada between 1823 & 1844, settling in Brock township, Ontario County, Ontario. John Clinkskill (sp. in 1851 census) born abt. 1792 and his wife Margaret Thompson, b. abt. 1794, had a daughter Jane, b. 1823 in Scotland, and married to Peter Baker in Brock twp by 1844. I know through a Thompson connection that Margaret Thompson Clinkskill/Clinkscale was b. in Ladykirk, Berwick, Scotland, to James Thompson and Margaret Patterson (who was b abt 1762 same place).
Possible brothers of Jane and sons of John & Margaret in the Lakefield area, north of Peterborough, Ontario, were Robert Clinkscale(b.1812) and Peter Clinkscale (b.1820). Also a possible sister was Margaret (spelled Clinkskill in 1861 and Clinkscales in 1874) who was born around 1820 (?) and died in 1852 in Georgina twp, York Co, Ontario, right next to Brock twp, and was the first wife of George Evans.
This surname was rare in Ontario in the 1800's so it's quite possible that these folks are related to each other. Any help would be appreciated!
