Karen (Hewitt) Phinney of Halifax,
Nova Soctia, has in her possession original documents about the ancestry
and descendency of William Hewitt, who lived in Vittoria, Charlotteville
Township, Norfolk County in the mid to late 1800s.
This seems strange because Karen
knows of no connection between the Hewitts of Norfolk and her birth
family. In Jan 2003 Karen asked if we could help sort it out, and
perhaps eventually find a connection between the two families.
To that end, we have transcribed
photocopies of the documents Karen provided. We have also provided a bit of
Karen's own genealogy, in hopes that helps.
