Hi Tim, I wonder if you can be of help to me. I have 2 different TOPHAMS that appear in my (husbands)tree but haven't been able to link them. Records in Canada tie both to Yorkshire.
The first is JANE TOPHAM born abt 1817 who married ANTHONY TAYLOR in England and came to Canada around 1851. Jane's death certificate lists her father as EDWARD and good information has it that Jane is the daughter of EDWARD and MARY[nee SMITH ]TOPHAM, who married ,1814 in Harswell Yorkshire.Edward was 23 ,Mary 20.I have read they had 12 children before she died and he remarried ANN TOPHAM[a widow], daughter of John Hudson.
Jane and Anthony's daughter SARAH TAYLOR (born April 1850)ENGLAND married SAMUEL TOPHAM in Kinburn, Hullett Twp., Ontario in 1871. SAMUEL was born abt.1844 in England and his parents were JAMES TOPHAM and MARY ANN (WASS)who were married Wharram Percy, Yorkshire in 1843.
Many of these "Canadian" TOPHAMS are buried in Dixon's Union Cemetery,Chinguacousy, Peel, Ontario.
I would like to find out if/how JANE AND JAMES TOPHAM were related and if their respective children SARAH TAYLOR and SAMUEL TOPHAM who married were "cousins" of sorts. Any help is appreciated. Thank you , Susan.
