(Please note: There may be some errors, please advise if you have records to determine correct dates, places, etc…)

Below is my direct Eamer Ancestors. John Frederick Eamer and Mary Catherine Veronica Seymour are my grandparents. However, it should be noted, that I am also descended from Allinder Eamer (d/o Philip Eamer & Mary Ann Cryderman) m. Harmonius Gallinger – this is the connection I used to prove my United Empire Loyalist Ancestry.

United Empire Loyalist Connections

“Following the Constitutional Act of 1791, the colony of Quebec was divided to create Upper Canada (present-day Ontario) and Lower Canada (present-day Québec). Military and civilian settlers submitted petitions to the Governor to obtain Crown land. Sons and daughters of Loyalists were also entitled to free lands.” (Source: Library and Archives Canada,  www.bac-lac.gc.ca)
