RnD Hearn Family

The purpose of this page to to hold "research" regarding the Taylor family through marriage into the Hearn family.
It is the process of Roy doing a genealogy search trying to go beyond current family members.
Following gets boring so feel free to pass onto more exotic finds within There is no "Update Date" which is on many other pages at this site.
Rather, all of the following text will be revised on-the-fly or added to at any time.

From the Taylor RnD page:

Richard Taylor, John's father is the last known family member above Caroline 'Taylor' Christopherson.
UPDATE: See July 20, 2012.

William Stuart Taylor's daughter, Jane Taylor married into the Hearn family.

William Hearn was born in London England in 1830. He emigrated to Canada in the 1850's. According to his wedding certificate, he was married in 1859 in Kingston Upper Canada to Jane Taylor who
was born in the Barbados in 1828. She was the daughter of Richard Taylor and
Elizabeth Mehetabel Jones, who raised their family in the Barbados and emigrated to Kingston, Upper Canada
in the 1840's
From the 1861 and 71 Census Jane and William lived in Ottawa where William was a chemist.
We are looking for information about William's parents, William and Ann Hearn, who lived in London England in 1859

Mary Hearn, if you are out there, please email Roy.
List of Herns in 1881 Census(s)

JANE TAYLOR) Wm. Hearn came to Canada -- Kingston,
WM. HEARN ( from London, England, as a young man. He had been a chemist there and is said to have been very bright and attractive with charming manners.
I have heard that he had a sister which married someone named Ireson -- a large transport firm in England.
Another sister who married a man named Savage --
lived in Montreal I think, was left a widow and quite wealthy -- no family that I ever heard of. He had a brother who married and lived in Montreal years ago --
a partner in the firm of Hearn and Harrison, Optician and Surveying and Draughting Instruments ect. [Roy found book on this online] The firm was still doing
business on one of the main streets in"

and stayed with Chas. B. Hearn where she died and was buried at about 88, in 1909.

Written by a Hearn:
"He married a woman whose maiden name I believe was "Jones" -- she
is said to have been a cousin of the then Duke of Norfolk, but was more
or less disinherited [excomunicated - this orig text "disinherited" was
struck out) because she had given up the Roman Catholic faith and
married a Protestant."

This would state Richards wife's maiden name was Jones and she was a cousin. Possibly Duke during 1814.

June 22, 2012 According to document RECORD_0001_Hearn Percival, Percival's mother, next of kin Jane Hearn, lived at 1369 queen street, w, Toronto, ONT on AUG 1st 1918.

Lets move on to another document Roy already had. Uploaded image below July 24, 2012.
Percival Hearn_Birth_YorkToronto1892_altered
This appears to be a Birth type record fron York, Division of Toronto (Ontario Canada) for Percival Hearn,
It does state that the Mothers surname is Sleaman and not Slimmons. As in Isabella Sleaman who married William Stuart Taylor. You would have to have read all about the Taylors here in the Research and Developement area, along with Sigurdur and Caroline's Families Individual pages, to see that Isabella's last name varies. This is one of the first "official" documents that show as Sleaman. From the Slimmons RnD page, we know her fathers name was John and he was involved in the Finian movement. Along with some more details. HOWEVER, Isabella's son was not Percival! Should be as follows:
Richard and Elizabeth Mehetabel JONES Taylor > William Stuart Taylor and Isabella Sleaman > Jane Taylor Hearn > Percival Hearn
The skipped one generation. Perhaps Maiden name all way back. Now to find more substanciating documents.

Roy forgot he had already created a tree related to Richard Hearn, which Vern Austman was kind enough to inform him about.

Doing a search on "John Sleaman" and "Finian movement" yields nothing, nor on John Sleeman.

Next up in Roy's archives is an 1881 Census which he "believes" is the family. John Christopherson is listed as Danish and possible they meant Icelandic.

Caroline Taylor
"Uncle John Taylor and Aunt Elizabeth came to the rescue and took the girls to live with them in Haliburton, Ontario. When their father remarried, Carrie and Anna returned
home, Susie and Jane remained with their aunt and unclie and Elizabeth married. The next few years saw Carrie attend High school and graduate as a teacher. When she was 16 her 'hair went up and her skirts were lowered' and she went out to teach at a country school. She also apprenticed as a dressmaker, soon becoming good at sewing and cutting out garments which required much tucking, ruching and gathers in those days. On a trip to visit her aunt, uncle and sisters in Haliburton, the last night of the journey was spent at Kinmount. Next morning at breakfast

Sigurdur Christopherson
Sigurdur had taken a homestead and named it 'Hasavik', there they farmed for four years until moving to Argyle Municipality. Two sons were born at Husavik, Jon Sigurdur and William Christopher. In the spring of 1881, the move was made to their new homestead of 'Grund', NE 10-6-14 in Argyle. Their household effects, stove, dishes, and aprecious box of books, were shipped to Portage la Prairie, but were lost in transit. Source: Sigurdur Christopherson Page - Life In Canada

From this, we deduce this census was taken before April, 1881.

A MAJOR break-through thanks to Vern Austman! He has supplied Roy with 6 out of roughly 100+ page story titled The Hearn Family Story.
According to the Hearn Family, Richard's father was named GEORGE. His wife's paternal name was JONES, which is what all past info states, and his wife's maternal side was LESLIE, which confirms the Bowman Leslie Tale!

Richard and Eliza Taylor was buried here. at PLOT N. 1C. So Elizabeth is known as "Eliza". At Cataraqui Cemetery, Waterloo Village (now known as Cataraqui Village) in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Roy is emailing the cemetery as he posts this intel. Wicked!!!!!!!!!
Below, according to the Hearn Story is the Burial place of our Great Great Great/GREAT Grandfather, Richard Taylor and his wife Eliza, born as Elizabeth Mehetabel JONES.

2. Found their burial place and awaiting confirmation. These leads have no citations, so not 100% positive they are correct.
3. William and John Taylor's grandfathers name was George. This would match Richard´s childrens names recently posted at Taylor research page

It would seem that Richard Taylor was somewhat wealthy and this new report shows he married Eliza in Barbadoes, not England. Her father was Mr. Jones and her mother, Mrs. x LESLIE Jones. Have done about 20 searches and a couple hundred page searches with little to show. Lot's on Captain Taylor and drowned, yet no link to our Richard. Being we now know Richard was brought to Barbados and reared by Captain George Taylor's friend, we have lots more intel and may get concrete evidence in Barbados documents, or off their grave markers.

In the early middle ages, Scotland consisted of four separate  kingdoms: 
* Dalriada inhabitated by Scots, 
* Strathclyde inhabited by Britons, 
* The Kingdom of the Picts, 
* Northumbria inhabited by Angles. 
From Forum with Robert Sewell Lineages pasted in
Scottish and Pictish families began intermarrying in the 8th  century, and their kingdoms were often ruled by the same king. The  monarchy of Scotland evolved from this union, known as the Kingdom of  Alba. By the late 9th century, the Kingdom of Alba began absorbing  the kingdoms of the Britons and Angles. Thus, through intermarriage  and conquest, the Scottish Kings of Dalriada emerged as the overall  Kings of Scotland.  The Scots of Dalriada claimed a legendary antiquity beginning with  Gaythelos, son of a King of Greece who went to Egypt during the time  of Moses where he married the eponymous Scoti, daughter of the  Pharaoh. Gaythelos, Scoti, and their family emigrated to Spain and  eventually several groups of their descendants emigrated to Ireland;  the final group under Simon Brek, whose grandson led a colony from  Ireland to northern Britain and named it "Scotia". In the year 330  BC, these Scots elected as their king Fergus, son of Ferehard; and  they remained in Scotland until 360 AD when they were driven back to  Ireland by the Picts and Britons. In the 5th century, they returned  to Scotia under the leadership of Fergus, son of Erc. Or so the story  goes.  History knows nothing of the Scots earlier than about 500 AD, but  at this point, the name of Fergus MorMacErc (Fergus, son of Erc)  emerges from the mists of legend as the King of Scots in Dalriada.

Thus, it is with Fergus that we will begin this genealogical record. 
Kings of Dalriada
Generation One 
Fergus MorMacErc  Acceded circa 490  Died (killed) 501
The information in the Generations One to Twelve [Roy only copied Gen 1] is taken from  Frederick Lewis Weis: Ancestral Roots, Baltimore, 1999 and from Brian  Tompsett, Royal Genealogical Data, University of Hull, 2005. Please  refer any additional sources, information, corrections and so on to  Robert Sewell. 

Well look who we have here, Fergus who has been listed on our Great Ancestor page as 43rd Great Grandfather (Sigvaldason Branch)

Research on the Father of William Hearne the Merchant - NO RELATIONSHIP
EXCERPT: "...According to Dr. P. H. Reaney, A Dictionary of British Surnames (first edition, London, 1958), the surname Hearn, Herne, Harn, Hurn or variations comes from the Old English word "hyrne", meaning a nook or corner of land, or a bend, and the word was thus applied to people living in such a geographical feature. There are in fact place-names with this origin, such as Herne in Kent, and Hirn in Hampshire. Hern is also a Middle English form of the word "heron", hence the fact that families of the name had herons in their shields, and at a very early date the surnames are found as variants of one another. ..."
