Classification: Query
Surnames: Planta, Seymour
I am trying to locate descendents of Joseph and Margaret Planta. Joseph was born in Wales in approximately 1839 and Margaret was born in Australia in approximately 1846. In the 1881 Canadian census, they are listed as having 5 children – Amelia (b. circa 1864), Evan (b. circa 1866), Albert (b. circa 1868), Walter (b. circa 1870) and Lilla (b circa 1880). The census indicates that all the children (except Lilla) were born in Australia, but gives their ethnic origin as Welsh (probably because their father was Welsh). Lilla was born in British Columbia, which is where the family was living at the time.

I am trying to determine if Margaret’s maiden name was Seymour. If it was, I believe I have traced a related family. Family legend speaks of Margaret Seymour marrying and eventually moving to Canada.
