Lucy Ann Evison Colvin and Her Descendants, Part One

Lucy Ann Evison is the third oldest of eleven children of William Evison and Ellen Sarah Wickham. Lucy Ann was most often called by the nickname, “Annie”.

Lucy Ann may have been named after her grandmother, Lucy Frost Evison.

Annie was born on 9 Jun 1866 — likely in Delaware Township, Middlesex County (Ontario).

Marriage - Henry Farrell and Annie EvisonShe lived with her family until she married Henry Farrell on 2 Sep 1884 in Lambeth, Westminster Township, Middlesex County, Ontario (Canada).

According to the marriage registration, Henry was born in Pennsylvania (USA) and he was 25 years old when he married Annie.  Annie was 17 years old.

At the time of their marriage, both Henry and Annie were living in Delaware.

Annie re-married on 28 May 1891 — to Andrew Colvin.  On the marriage registration, she is listed as being a widow.

I couldn’t find any documentation related to Henry’s death.  I also couldn’t find any information on whether or not Henry and Annie had any children.

Marriage - Andrew Colvin and Annie EvisonAs mentioned, Annie married Andrew Colvin on 28 May 1891 in Delaware.

Andrew is the son of Andrew Colvin Sr. and Mary McEwen and he was born in Paris, Brant County, Ontario (Canada) on 30 Aug 1860.

Andrew and Annie had five children, all born in Delaware Township (Middlesex County) — see Part Two of this blog.

From at least 1901, the Colvin family lived in Caradoc Township (Middlesex County) where Andrew made his living by farming.
