Significant Facts & Guesses on William

His name appears on son Joseph Walker’s marriage licence which also show his wife circa 1851 to be Mary Ann

Joseph was born in Huron County in Aug 1850 per marriage license. There was a Ontario Census in 1851 in which thare is a Joseph Brown age 2 living with:

NOTE: Age below is age on next birthday.

Location is Walpole

John Brown Bricklayer - Scotand - 33
Jane Brown - England - 32
Abner Brown - Canada - 15
Mary J - Canada - 11
Joseph - Canada - 2

Joseph Dixon - England - 25 also has a home in Thorold and is in the Thorold census of same year 1851
Mary Anne Walker - England - 23 also has a home in Thorold

Could Jane (wife of John Brown) be a Dixon or a Walker? Not likely.

Unfortunately Abner Brown was born in Canada about 1837 which would mean John and Jane were in Canada when the 1841 Scotland census was recorded unless he was not their son.

Looked for Mary Anne Walker in Jedburgh in 1841 and Thorold in 1851. No luck.

Looked for Dixons in the English town closest to Jedburgh. No luck.

If he was counted he was one of ____ William Walkers.

Most likely Joseph did not travel to Walpole by himself. William may have purchased land.

There are 2 William Walkers in Walpole ON in land map
