That is Deer Isle Maine your are talking about? Or is it the Deer Island in Canada. I am having so much fun learning about my ancestors of the past. In my line Thomas Hardy was the first to come to America in 1630 so I have plenty of history to try and weed through. The other part of the family the Tilley were Loyalists who went up into Canada when Britan lost the war. If I come across anything related to James and Sarah I'll post it for you or send you a link.
Marjorie, What about the Appleby name. I have rund across it im my travels many times. The Appleby's seem to have been here with the earlist colonial arivals. They seem also to have been very high up in the early colonial society..
Aha the Loyalists! My line of Tilley's go back to the Loyalists. He was decended from the same line as Sir Samuel Lenard Tilley. I think I saw some of the Appleby's down in Deer Isle, Maine. I used to go to a dentist in bangor, his name was Dr. Charles King he was from Orrington, Maine. If you need anything I will try to help. You do understand that the Loyalists went up to Canada from various places in the US. It gets very hard to track them down as you can't keep track of the changing names they were using. I might be able to help with a bit of the geography.
