MY MESSAGE:

We are seeking to find the parents of my gggrandfather John.  We know that:

-he was born April 15, 1819 in Yorkshire

-his father was named ? Ibbitson

-his mother was named Jane ?

-his mother came to New Brunswick, Canada where she married George Lund in 1821

John is the ancestor of many 100s of Lunds in Canada, and several of us would love to discover our roots in Yorkshire. Thank you for any help you can provide.

THE REPLY:

The only reference to a John IBBITSON is as follows:

IBBOTSON John baptized 8 May 1819 to Jane IBBOTSON in Nunnington

The surname is spelled differently but that is the only reference I could find near the name and dates given. Hope this is helpful.

Other speakers taking part were Lennox Kinnear, Mr (John) Lund, James Distant, William Cook and James McFee...

&nbsp

From "Lippentott"by Ivan Lund:

John Lund owned marshland in the Tantramar marsh near Sackville that he claimed from the sea, building dikes with shovel and wheelbarrow (the Tantamar Marsh in the Sackville area was drained by settlers, providing fertile farmland). He and later his sons built their homes and farm buildings with whip-sawn (hand-cut) lumber. They used oxen to work the land and cut grain with scythes, beat it with flails and pounded it into flour. They had orchards, vegetable gardens, cows and chickens. For food they had wild berries, moose and deer meat, trout from the streams, herring from the Tantramar River, mackerel and cod from the Bay of Fundy and lobster from the Northumberland Straits. Life was good, blizzards, droughts and hailstorms unknown and a bottle of Jamiacan rum was only 25 cents. But families were large with not enough room to spread out, so they looked westward.

&nbsp

by Marilyn Clayton in Steel and Grass Roots: the History of Elkhorn, 1882 - 1982:

In 1884 John and Mary Ann (when they were both about 65) came with 8 sons and dtrs to Lippentott, a district on the Manitoba/Saskatchewan border. George, Charles and James remained in NB. 20 Lunds in total came west between 1882 to 1892, leaving a good life to travel more than 1 /2 way across Canada to the windswept, empty prairie. John homesteaded the NW1/4 36-10-30 (section-township-range), broke land with oxen, had 13 acres, 3 in crop, in 1884 - 38 acres by '87. Four cattle in '84, 6 in '87. He built his home June '84, 24x16ft with added kitchen 12x12, also barn and granary. In '88 wrote the Minister of Interior describing his land as" 60 acres on both banks of the Pipestone Creek, almost worthless with rocks and ravines": reply $ 2.50/acre. Nondenominational church services were held in the home.

John was known to his family on the prairies as "Grandfather Lund". He and Mary Ann are buried in the tiny Lippentott or Lund Cemetery, beside 6 other Lunds, on land donated by neighbour and friend David Simpson (on Section 36-10-30) in what is now Saskatchewan. A ls o buried there were Daniel Lund (1843 - 1892), Jennie Lund (1897 - 1900) and Mary Muriel Lund (1900 - 1902), Jennie Kinnear (1885 - 1890), James Oliver Rowand (1858-1895) and James Harvey Rowand (1887 - 1892).

My great aunt - Myrtle who lives in Victoria apparently even wrote a book about the Lund family, but I haven't seen it. I am going to ask my uncle (Lyle Lund) who lives in Maple Ridge if he has a copy, as he too is a family buff. For Christmas he gave mea huge family tree, but I haven't quite been able to figure it out. It goes back to England John Lund born April 5, 1819 Yorkshire, Eng married Mary Ann Towse born Dec 21, 181. They were married Sept 9, 1842 by Rev Richard Shepherd and had 8 sons (1 died ininfancy) and 4 daughters. Anyway, this family tree picture that I have follows their children and then the branches of the trees go off in all directions to encompass each of the children's families, etc.

CANADIAN CENSUS RECORDS

per Irene Doyle: 6 Van Horne Cres., Campbellton NB E3N 3K

I have the 1851 censusfor Westmorland with early families and marriages. Here is what I find on LUND: there is in Sackville a Lunn, John age 31, American, with wife Mary A . (32) also born American

children: Daniel(9) John W. (7) James (5) George (2) Charles (1) Mary J. (3)

also...

Towse Mary Ann married Sept. 9/1842 John Lunn of Sackville both

(note: later census records list John as born inEngland. I believe that John Lund's stepfather George Lund came from the United States, and the "American" listing for John and his wife who was definitely born in Yorkshire England could have beenbased on George's heritage. George was apparently back in the USA, in Maine, by 1851).

On Dec 14th, 1874, a meeting was held in the School house of which Edward O'Brien was chairman, and Charles Cook Secretary. Other speakers taking part were Lennox Kinnear, Mr (John) Lund, James Distant, William Cook and James McFee...

&nbsp

From "Lippentott" by Ivan Lund:

John Lund owned marshland in the Tantramar marsh near Sackville that he claimed from the sea, building dikes with shovel and wheelbarrow (the Tantamar Marsh in the Sackville area was drained by settlers, providing fertile farmland). He and later his sons built their homes and farm uildings with whip-sawn (hand-cut) lumber. They used oxen to work the land and cut grain with scythes, beat it with flails and pounded it into flour. They had orchards, vegetable gardens, cows and chickens. For food they had wild berries, moose and deer meat, trout from the streams, herring from the Tantramar River, mackerel and cod from the Bay of Fundy and lobster from the Northumberland Straits. Life was good, blizzards, droughts and hailstorms unknown and a bottle of Jamiacan rum was only 25 cents. But families were large with not enough room to spread out, so they looked westward.

&nbsp

by Marilyn Clayton in Steel and Grass Roots: the History of Elkhorn, 1882 - 1982:

In 1884 John and Mary Ann (when they were both about 65) came with 8 sonsand dtrs to Lippentott, a district on the Manitoba/Saskatchewan border. George, Charles and James remained in NB. 20 Lunds in total came west between 1882 to 1892, leaving a good life to travel morethan 1 /2 way across Canada to the windswept, empty prairie. John homesteaded the NW1/4 36-10-30 (section-township-range), broke land with oxen, had 13 acres, 3 in crop, in 1884 - 38 acres by '87. Four cattle in '84, 6 in '87. He built his home June '84, 24x16ft with added kitchen 12x12, also barn and granary. In '88 wrote the Minister of Interior describing his land as" 60 acres on both banks of the Pipestone Creek, almost worthless with rocks and ravines": reply $ 2.50/acre. Nondenominational church services were held in the home.

John was known to his family on the prairies as "Grandfather Lund". He and Mary Ann are buried in the tiny Lippentott or Lund Cemetery, beside 6 other Lunds, on land donated by neighbour and friend David Simpson (on Section 36-10-30) in what is now Saskatchewan. A ls o buried there were Daniel Lund (1843 - 1892), Jennie Lund (1897 - 1900) and Mary Muriel Lund (1900 - 1902), Jennie Kinnear (1885 - 1890), James Oliver Rowand (1858-1895) and James Harvey Rowand (1887 - 1892).

Terrie Okoye:

My great aunt - Myrtle who lives in Victoria apparently even wrote a book about the Lund family, but I haven't seen it. I am goingto ask my uncle (Lyle Lund) who lives in Maple Ridge if he has a copy, as he too is a family buff. For Christmas he gave me a huge family tree, but I haven't quite been able to figure it out. It goes back to England Jo hn Lund born April 5, 1819 Yorkshire, Eng married Mary Ann Towse born Dec 21, 181. They married Sept 9, 1842 by Rev Richard Shepherd and had 8 sons and 4 daughters. Anyway, this family tree picture that I have follows their children and then the branches of the tr es go off in all directions to encompass each of the children's families, etc.


per John and Mary Ann Lund's family bible: "John Lund was born 1819 April 5th in Yorkshire England"

MY MESSAGE:

We are seeking to find the parents of my gggrandfather John.  We know that:

-he was born April 15, 1819 in Yorkshire

-his father was named ? Ibbitson

-his mother was named Jane ?

-his mother came to New Brunswick, Canada where she married George Lund in 1821

John is the ancestor of many 100s of Lunds in Canada, and several of us would love to discover our roots in Yorkshire. Thank you for any help you can provide.

THE REPLY:

The only reference to a John IBBITSON is as follows:

IBBOTSON John baptized 8 May 1819 to Jane IBBOTSON in Nunnington

The surname is spelled differently but that is the only reference I could find near the name and dates given. Hope this is helpful.

CANADIAN CENSUS RECORDS

1851 census, Westmorland County, Sackville Parish p77 (Cookville)

Mary A . (32) "American"

children:

(notes: later census records list John as born in England. Every listing in Sackville for a person not born outside New Brunswick describes the person as "American"...perhaps from "British North American". NOT to be found in the 1851 census are any other Lunds: not George, Jane, their children, etc. George "and family" is recorded in Machias Maine in 1850: it seems the whole family crossed the line, some came back including Jane and dtr Fannie. Daniel Lund b 1845 is not listed either. ML)
