John Alexander Archibald Ottawa, ON Canada Dec 03, 2001
I am searching for Archibald relations in Scotland but also
Archibalds who have family trees possibly connected to the
families who moved to Ulster Province in Ireland in the mid
to late 1600s.I am related to a John Archibald born in
Londonderry(Derry) city in 1693 and who left,with his family,around 1719-1722 to take up land grants in the New
England colonies.He died in 1751 and is interred in Londonderry,New Hampshire,U.S.A.Seven of his children and
their families travelled to Truro,Nova Scotia,Canada in 1761/1762 .Another John Archibald,born in Derry,N.I. was born 1668 and possibly the father of my ancester.There is
evidence suggesting that the elder John A. may have come from Scotland at the time King James andor Cromwell were
"influencing" families to remove to other parts of the Empire.He may also have had ties to the 11th Earl of Eglinton Archibald,born 1751,of Eglinton,Londonderry,Ireland.All dates are from Church of Latter Day Saints records.Any help at all would be much
