|My most distant known paternal
ancestor is John Black (1798-1871) who was born in
Co. Down, Ireland and immigrated with his wife
Elizabeth Trimble and their family to Mariposa Twp.,
Victoria Co., Ontario, Canada in May 1825. John and
Elizabeth have at least five thousand descendants so
far. I'm currently trying to find out if cystic
fibrosis originated with this couple or was brought
into the family a couple of generations later. My
late father and at least one of his paternal uncles
are believed to have been carriers of F508del, the most
common CF mutation. Testing with 23andMe helped
confirm my dad was a carrier. If you aware of any
incidence of cystic fibrosis in the descendants of
John and Elizabeth Black, please email
My most distant known maternal ancestor is Hannah (Kruel) Carle (1769-1839) who may have been born in Belgium. She settled with her American husband Daniel Masters in Cramahe Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario, Canada in the 1790s.
Most of my ancestors originated in the United Kingdom.The Brunsons, the Dwinnells, the Masters and the Tripps were among the first North American arrivals in the 1630s. The Blacks, the Blackstocks, the Frenches, the Haws, the Nelsons, the Leonards, the Mulligans and the Perrins all left England and Ireland for Upper Canada between 1817 and 1825. The Heaslips and Magills left Cavan County, Ireland for Canada in the 1840s.
I also have many links to Lanarkshire, Scotland through my paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Clarkson Brown [1898-1935]. Her family surnames include Ballantyne, Brown, Greenshields, Hilston, Prentice, Reid and Rodgers. There is also a gap in the family tree since my great-grandfather Thomas Brown was illegitimate.
My more immediate English lines include the Jameses and the Smalls who have been traced to Sandhurst, Kent Co. England. They include my five times great-grandmother, Ann Frances James (1744-1799) whose 1744 baptismal entry in Newenden, Kent Co., England reads: "August 25th Frances Ann Newenden a foundling child."

Please email me if you visit my site. I'm an accredited genealogist with over twenty years' experience and I'm always interested in hearing from new cousins or people with similar surnames who have done DNA testing with Ancestry, Family Tree Maker or 23andme and would like to compare notes. As mentioned above, I'm also very interested in tracking down the source of cystic fibrosis in my father's family tree.
All the best,
