Tim Addison's Genealogy Webpages

Addisons of Westmorland, UK and Ontario, Canada

(Updated January 2014)

Welcome to my Addisons of Westmorland and Ontario Genealogy Web Site. This site documents branches of the Addison family tree who originated in the Kings Meaburn, Morland, Crosthwaite and Beathwaitegreen/Levens areas of northwestern England in the 1500s, some of whom emigrated to Canada in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, including my own Great Grandfather, Thomas Powley Addison, who came to Canada in 1907.  With this January 2014 update there are now 1212 individuals documented on this site, with 417 of them being Addisons. There are also 286 other surnames (Click this link to see them.) Surname List of persons related to the Addisons included in this family tree. 

This update includes 205 new persons which adds a lot of content to several branches of the tree both in the UK and in North America and as far afield as Hong Kong. I have also tried to delve back a bit further into the 1500s with the early Addisons of Kings Meaburn and Morland Parish thanks to some research done by a very helpful contact in the UK. From my perspective the most noteworthy person in this family tree is the Reverend Robert Addison, a missionary who founded one of the first churches of England in Canada at Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake) in 1792.  Reverend Robert ministered to the early settlers and the numerous Aboriginal communities in the area and officiated at the funeral of Sir Isaac Brock during the War of 1812.  Although largely overlooked by history, he played a key role in the early days of Upper Canada.

I hope you find this site interesting. If you have any comments, new information or suggestions for improvement please sign the guest book and/or send me an email or write me a letter. My address is below.

About this site...

The first four features of this website were created using Legacy software which produces a listing of descendants and their families by generation with notes on individuals as well as a surname list, index, etc. In this update personal information on persons living has been supressed.  Where possible I have included the text of indentures, wills and other legal documents which mention Addison family members as well as other members of the community. Researchers looking for their own family connections to the Levens, Heversham and Beathwaite Green area may find some names of interest in these documents.  The other features (background, photos, links, etc) I have constructed myself using my limited knowledge of web-paging.
