In Reply to: Major Henry Gladwin Derbyshire, England by Rob Roy of 160

Dear Rob, we have a family tree document that came over to Australia in the 1850's with our family documents. It is titled "GLADWIN OF STUBBINGS IN WINGERWORTH"

Major General Henry Gladwin was the son of Henry Gladwin of Stubbings Hall, Essex and Mary dau of Digby Dakeyne of ....
Henry was the son of Josaph Gladwin who was a younger son of Thomas Gladwin of Tupton(?) Esq Sherrif 1668.
This is the bare bones of the document. We have a copy of it and the original is being held in the Rare Document Section of the Australian National Library as the "Gladwin Family Collection"
There is also a note concerning Major Gladwin which reads as follows.....
"By letter from Philadelphia 29 Dec 1764 that the Indians under the Command of Pondeat(?) at Detroit And of the War after losing in several ... near 100 of their best Warriors had delivered to Major Gladwin 17 English prisoners and some of these people of Consequence at Montreal who were concerned infomenting this Warr and have proposed .... of peace - - -
We can't decipher a couple of words and wonder if Pondeat is Pontiac.
If you are interested in the other information on the family tree document, please let us know and we can share it with you. trust this fills some gaps for you.
