Re: Pride / Phillips first to Canada: Pryde/Pride 1678 orginating in Scotland

In Reply to: Pride / Phillips first to Canada: Pryde/Pride 1678 orginating in Scotland by Robert Phillips of 116

Alexander Pride (Edward Phillips 1790 - 1845)is my fourth great-grandfather. From the documents I have been able to locate, it appears as if he co-opted the name of a shipmate - Edward Phillips - in order to claim this man's land in Nova Scotia. I have a sister who found his name on the manifest of the Shannon, but am not positive about this connection and would love to know the name of the ship he jumped from! I am looking for anyone with information/documentation they would be willing to share on this Pride/Pryde family. From what I have found, it appears Alexander is the son of William Pride and Jean Smith of Cramond, Midlothian Scotland. William's parents are John Pryde and Mary Peat. I would love to find other descendants of Edward (Alexander Pride) Phillips and Mary Bailey.

Sincerely, Julie Phillips-Minor
