| John Trenholm was born at Welbury, Yorkshire in 1739. It is
said that John was a big man, over six feet tall, weighing almost 300
pounds (according to one of his pallbearers, a Mr. Tingley). John and
his wife, Isabella Coates, with four young children, came to Halifax,
possibly on the ship "Duke of York" and then on to Cumberland
County in the Colony of Nova Scotia about 1772 . They settled on
Inverma Farm, at a place now called Point de Bute, Westmorland
County, New Brunswick. Many of his descendants have moved away
to other parts of Canada and the USA. Other branches of this
family in Canada include:
- John's widowed father Robert, who with John's youngest brother Matthew, settled at Falmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.
- John's brother Edward, who initially settled at Trenholm or Kingsey, Quebec but returned to England; his son William later returned to continue the family line in Quebec. All three Canadian branches are included in an interactive tree format.
