Hebblethwaite and I live in Ontario Canada. The head of my family tree is
Robert. A relative spent quite a bit of time compiling information on the tree
and produced a hard cover book. However, there is very little known about
Robert. His birth date was guessed to be about 1792 was born in the city of
Leeds in Yorkshire, England. She has seen his gravestone in Wingham, Ontario. He
died in 1868 and the age shows on his stone as 77.
Coming to Canada with his family between 1842 and 1851, he is found in the census for London, Ontario Township. In the assessment rolls he is assessed as owning land but in the registry office for Middlesex the name Robert Hebblethwaite can’t be found. A Franklin & Jane and a Franklin & Anne are recorded as having property. So possibly the correct names of these people are Franklin Robert or Robert Franklin and Jane Anne or Anne Jane; no proof of this can be found.
Since Jane is not listed in the 1851 Census we presumed she has passed away. In the 1861 census, Robert, age 69 and daughter Louisa are living with son John and family at St. John’s (Arva) Middlesex county. That is the last time he is listed so it is presumed he died before the 1871 census.
This is the tree that is published and perhaps this is something that someone can trace to the roots in England.

My personal tree that I know of is:
One other thing that I thought was interesting is that one of the son’s of Robert eventually went to Evanston, Illinois USA and opened up a funeral home. The name Hebblethwaite was on the funeral home until about 10 years ago. The person that did the research said that if any Hebblethwaite wanted to be buried there they would receive a free burial plot. How's that for a cool bit of information?
