From England to Arkell

The story of two pioneer settlers, Lewis & Thomas King who left Suffolk England for the wilds of Upper Canada in 1831

Authored by Lorine McGinnis Schulze

From England to Arkell is the story of two pioneer settlers, Lewis & Thomas King, who left England for the wilds of Upper Canada in 1831. Lewis and Thomas were born in Wenhaston, Suffolk England. In 1817 the brothers married and began raising their families but in 1831 they decided to settle in what was then the wilderness of Upper Canada (present day Ontario). Joining a small group of Englishmen, they sailed to New York and then crossed into Canada. There they established a new settlement called Arkell, named after the leader of the group. A 4-generation genealogy report is included in this book, as are photographs, newspaper clippings, and other documents. Descendants will also find information on the King brothers' parents and grandparents and copies of documents which reveal many new facts about the family. Descendants of the two pioneer brothers settled mainly in Michigan, Ontario, Australia, and Alberta.
