I am working on a Lymburner family history and interested in all Lymburners in North America from 1760 on. Between cousins and myself we have a good understanding of the familly.

You are right. Mathew who married Margaret Kaims and John who married two Glenn sisters, Jean being the last wife. Mathew moved to New Brunswick and John stayed in Maine. There are a couple of manuscripts and one book about the family who settled in Maine. Since the time of these histories many new sources have been found.

There was another family of Lymburners in Quebec, Canada. John, Adam and Mathew.

The two Mathews have been mixed. The stone for Matthew Lymburner Esq. who is buried in Kilmarnock, Scotland is the Quebec line and not the one who went to Maine and New Brunswick as written. Mathew who went to New Brunswick died there and probate papers were filed by his wife Margaret and son John. The family then moved on to Ontario.

Further back...

I'm directly descended from John Lymburner and Jean Glenn who settled in Brooksville, Maine. From the published information, I know the family history back to John and Matthew. However, I've seen nothing from before them.

I understand you are writing a book. If you will be including this information in the book, please put me on the list of people interested in buying the book. However, if you will not be publishing this information - and have access to it, I'd appreciate any information you have.

Also, if you'd like more information about current generations of Lymburners from Maine, I'd be happy to share what I know.

I am interested in this discussion about John and Matthew Lymburner in Scotland. One of my forebears was Mary Lymburner born or baptised 4 Mar 1738/39 in Dundonald, Ayr. Her father was John Lymburner. Does this connect with your information?

Another Lymburner here - I am also interested in your potential book -I'm descended from the New Brunswick Mathew who married Rachael Young if this is the line that later moved to Caistor Centre in Ontario. If you would like more info on these generations I have some.

I am interested in a Lymburner from Canada who MAY be from the Caistor line. His name was Silas/Cyrus, and he was somehow related to a Harrison and a Peter. They all end up in Port Huron, Michigan in 1885. Silas married my gr grandad's first wife, Millie Campbell McLean in 1897, He was 39 at the time. We have nothing on them after the 1900 census. They are gone from Port Huron by 1904. I think Silas (as "Cyrus") MAY have married a woman named Elizabeth Sammons in Feb of 1878. While still in Caistor. Anyone in here?

My great grandfather's name was Harrison E. Lymburner. He died in 1931 in Port Huron, MI. From a marriage record I found I have learned his father's name was Peter Lymburner. Also have learned that Peter's wife was Harriet Sutherland. I know that Harrison was born in Dunville, Ontario. I don't recognize any of the names in your email But by all means email me and let's see if we can figure this thing out.

Peter Lymburner, 1828 - 1904 (wife Harriet Sutherland) was the son of Jay John Lymburner b. 1803 in Caistor and his wife, Sarah Melick, b. 1804 in Caistor.
Peter 1828 >Jay John 1803 >Alexander 1770 Maine >Matthew b. 1742 Dundonald, Scotland > John b. ca 1700 (Dundonald?) Scotland.
Sorry, don't have any info on Peter's children. However, Peter had 9 siblings one of whom was my great grandfather, Alexander, b. 1826. I have the others names if you're interested.

Hope this info may be of some help if you don't already have it.
