Robert Ellis and Hannah Darby
My ancestor Robert Ellis was born in London c.1797 and grew up in Bideford, Devonshire as far as we can tell. He came to the Island of St. John (Prince Edward Island) in 1819 and married Hannah Darby in 1823. At some point after 1824 he took his wife and son, John back to Bideford. More children were born (and died) while in Bideford and sometime around 1840 they came back to PEI and settled in Summerside. Robert is a bit of a mystery, leaving no clues about his parents or siblings. I suspect that he is the brother of William Ellis (m. Grace Williams) of Bideford who owned the Peacock Inn. I have started researching William's descendants to see if I can come up with some clues.
