I'm looking for some early history ( pre 1760 )of the Plant family from
Cheshire County. They have connections to a Plant family in London,
England in 1760.
Samuel Plant and wife unknown, had two known sons. The second named
William, was born in London, Oct. 1760. In 1775, William (Samuel) Plant
was released to his father from Christ's Hospital School and went to New
York City as an apprentice to work seven years for John Antil, Counscellor
at Law, returning in 1783 to London. At this time his mother was already
dead, but his father was still living. On William (Samuel) Plant's school
records, his mother's name is not mentioned, leads me to believe she may
have died giving birth to William (Samuel) Plant, or in the ten years that
followed William's birth. In late 1784, William (Samuel) Plant returned to
North America, settling in Spanish River ( now Sydney ) Cape Breton, NS.,
This PLant family I'm looking for,is connected in Chesire County, to the
famous Henry Bradley Plant of Plant City, Florida, USA, and another early
Plant line that went to central Canada.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
