Welcome....

I hope the information you find here is useful and interesting. This is not a typical genealogy web site as I am more of a historian than a genealogist and therefore have also researched the times of the Brownbridges in Canada as well as documenting the usual family trees.

Jan. 2011....

The family tree has been completely updated, plus: new data added, some corrections and some mysteries solved.

Descendants of William Brownbridge of Gosford Ontario....

The basic family tree can be accessed from the links in the sidebar. More detailed family information including the names of the 6th and 7th generations are available to family members. Contact me for the password. If I don't have your current family information and you are willing to share it, please send it to me. I would encourage everyone to read the stories section to gain a better understanding of the lives of your ancestors.

Special thanks to....

This research would have been impossible without the family information that Aunt Margaret Shaw collected and shared with her family. The names and dates she recorded provided the map that led us on this journey. Special gratitude also goes to the very helpful folks of the Leeds & Grenville Genealogical Society in Brockville, Ontario. Jack and Larry's knowledge and guidance saved us many hours and enabled us to finally track down the Brownbridge Canadian roots.

Dedication....

This project has been a labour of love, a gift for the wonderful family I married into and a legacy for our children and grandchildren.
