Hi all, this is my first entry on any threads so forgive me if I'm a little rough in my writing. I have been working on my Vickery family history and I hit a massive brick wall which I cannot seem to break down. The eldest record I found was an 1861 census of Canada listing my 5th great grandfather along with his family. But I cannot seem to find anything definitive ANYWHERE prior to these records. The record states the following family members: Thomas Vickerie 50 born in England married Jane Vickerie 50 born in England married Isabelle Vickerie 27 born in England married Thomas Vickerie 24 born in England single William Vickerie 22 born in England single James Vickerie 17 born in Canada West single Great lead, especially as they are all listed as members of the Church of England. HOWEVER I cannot find any trace of this family in England, or anywhere else, for that matter. I have found later censuses which list William's birth place as Ireland as well as England but I cannot find anything to support any claims in any direction. Could anyone be so kind as to give me suggestions what kind of resources I may be able to look at, or suggestions regarding any ideas how they could theoretically immigrated? I've even considered the thought of a name change in immigration. I can't see why one would change their name if they were English speaking but I don't have lot of experience with that particular area of expertise. Thank you in advance for any suggestions made. I'm open to any ideas or suggestions anyone can make.
