Clark & Ansted, Fruit brokers

While searching through census records on the Ansteds, I noted that both Thomas Ansted (my great-great-great-great-great grandfather) and John Ansted (my great-great-great-great grandfather) were listed as brokers. In one census, John was listed as a fruit broker. Once I had that detail, I decided to search Google for <Ansted and fruit broker> and, lo and behold, up […]

Most of them arrived here well before Confederation and all of them settled in what is today Quebec and Ontario. I haven’t completely researched or documented everyone listed here – some are still more in the realm […]

John Ansted, Jr. was my great-great-great grand uncle. His sister Dionysia was my great-great-great grandmother. John intrigues me because he was the eldest of a family of seven and he was the only son. He worked with his father at the family business (Clark, Ansted & Co., fruit brokers) until his death a year before his father’s passing.

He was baptised on November 22 of that year at St. Dunstan in the East, London, England.

I don’t have any information on Thomas’ childhood or young adulthood at […]

(And, in case you’re interested, Canada’s is in October!) When I thought about what I could contribute to the Carnival, it seemed logical […]

As I stated in a previous post, when I set out my genealogy goals for 2011, I thought it would be relatively simple to write up the biographies for the two people I had significant information about in my Ansted line. In December, I had information on my great-great-great grandmother Dionysia Ansted and her father […]
