My Surname Index
All of the names connect to the Wannamaker branch. Some have been researched
well, others have not. These surnames span all of North America from early times. It is not only Canadian.
My Maternal Branch = my grandparents are Thomas James Wannamaker and
Anna Maria Lander. Old German.
Thomas is a descendant of United Empire Loyalists. He is 4th generation
Canadian. The Wannamaker family first came to New Jersey and New York in
1709. They were then known as Pennsylvania Dutch by location. Many
marrying into the Dutch lines very early. There are thousands of living
descendants throughout all of North America. My Grandmother did not come to Canada until she was 9 years old from
Baden Wuertemburg, Germany. So there is believed to be many relatives
still living in Germany.
