I received a text today from my son, Aaron Robins : Good Morning Dad…. Elliot ( my grandson 6 yrs old ) needs to know who the first person in our family was to come to CANADA for a school project…Grade 1
To which i replied..“ GOD”….LOL
HOWEVER I’M NOT SURE THAT WAS THE ANSWER HE WAS LOOKING FOR…………
So thanks to my father Paul Robins for researching that information to be handed down generation to generation for years to come.….
Elliot: William Calder Your 13th Great Grandfather who was the Gardner for the Governor of New Hampshire(and his illegitimate son hush hush- with Francis Wentworth) in 1700 was tarred and feathered and Left New Hampshire as a UNITED EMPIRE LOYALIST and came to Upper Canada to settle.
Thanks to your great Grandfather Paul Robins it has been bestowed upon us to proudly carry the initials U.E. behind the family name ROBINS by the QUEEN of ENGLAND ..Queen Elizabeth the 2nd in 1990.
So forge forward ELLIOT and make your footprint in the sands of time.
Live long, Laugh often, Love daily
