Preston Family Genealogy

ON THIS WEBSITE

FIRELANDS CONNECTION: Read the genealogy of Lucy Preston, wife of Frederick Wickham, who came to the Firelands in 1819 with her parents Samuel and Esther Preston and her brother Charles. This is an excerpt from the transcription of a handwritten notebook found in the papers of Harriott Benedict Wickham Barton. The family history in this notebook was the work of Harriott and her mother Agnes Caroline Wickham, who separately researched and made entries in it over a period of seventy years.  Agnes Wickham wrote roughly half of the entries in the notebook from 1909 to 1915.  In 1915, she gave handwritten copies of her work to each of her five children: Eleanor, William, Lucy, David and Harriott.  Harriott continued her mother’s work off and on for the next sixty years, adding entries as late as 1977.
