Historical Document: Marmaduke Lawrence Harvey – Baptism, 1897

This website has focused on our Canadian Family’s shared Jersey, French Canadian and Acadian heritage – however in recent years we’ve joined our lines with those of some Franchinis from central and northern Italy and Harveys who originated in the United Kingdom. Research on these lines has just started!

Today I’d like to share our first historical document pertaining to the Harveys.

Methodist Centenery Church – Point St-Charles (Montreal)  – 1897

Marmaduke Lawrence Harvey - Baptism

Marmaduke Lawrence Harvey – Baptism

This baptismal certificate confirms that Marmaduke’s parents were Albert Joseph Harvey and Emma Dolling Young and that the officiating minister was Melvin Taylor.

A Canadian Family Database lists four other children for this couple (Albert Cecil, Anne, John, and Margarita Elizabeth) but I haven’t located the primary documents. Our family is connected to the Albert Cecil Harvey line.
