Because I receive numerous requests for information about William Ellis, of Bideford PEI, ship builder, I have decided to put the info I have up on my web page. This info is not all documented, and is in rough form. As usual, I will provide sources if requested.
My ancestor Robert Ellis, of Summerside, was a cousin of William's. It has not yet been proven, but I hope to be able to do so in the future.
The book by Preston Ellis is often quoted when people are talking about William's family. I have found that book to have several errors and should be used only as a clue to further your research.
