Hi Donna...I can answer these questions for you that you left for Beryl. Beryl's George hooks up with my family. So if your George and her George are related...then you are related to my husband.

Charles Birkett (son of Charles Birkett and Elizabeth Robinson) married Elizabeth Jane Seatree (daughter of
William Seatree and Isabella Fearon ...she is the decendent of Joshu Fearon who raised hunting dogs and is still mentioned on the net!)

Charles and Jane (I believe she was known by her second name) had
Charles born 1880
Willaim born 1869
Mary Elizabeth born 1872
George born 1873
Walter born 1876
Isabella Jane born 1878
Margaret born 1882
Frederick Seatree Birkett born 1883
John born 1888
Annie born 1890
Grace born 1893
Joseph born 1895

Charles born 1880 married Isabella Lamb and emigrated to Canada in about 1910 and settled in Saskatchewan (outside of Blaine Lake in a little area known as Ryder Lake...all it had was ONE grain elevator..and a cluster of farms and a couple of miles behind the elevator was a school..so the shopping hub of the time was Blaine Lake..still is!) Charles and Isabella died in Vancouver..as they followed Kens Mom to the west. As the story goes, they adored Ken and wanted to be where ever he was. So when Ken's Mom and Dad moved to Vancouver...so did they.

I have lots more information...and can take the tree back a couple more generations. Infact..one or two of those sons were Olympic quality athletes...and my memory is a bit rusty now but I believe that they were both policemen..one died on the job. And I did hear that some people went to Australia and others ended up in South Africa.

Does any of this information fit with yours??

Contact me at home...mgraham@wsi.ca
Thanks
