This Website is built around what we call the "Primary" Blackwell family. That is, the Blackwells that left Gloucester, England in the middle of the 1800s and came to North America via Montreal into Canada and New York into the United States. It is one family consisting of the father, and three sons that made the journey leaving behind two daughters, a young boy and their mother in England with plans to bring them over after the men had settled. It was a good plan, and for the most part, it worked. The mother and eldest daughter died before they could reach their new country, but the second daughter and her young brother arrived some years later. Since that time, the family settled in Minnesota as well as in both Central and Western Canada. Through marriage, there have been a number of other fine families that joined with the Blackwell line. This page is to assist in the search for your ancestors in this Website, including the families that joined through marriage.
The links showen here will give some insight on how we track each family member and also their lineage.
Individual Family Members have an assigned number: See Number System
Lineages of each are color coded page markers: See Colour Codes
The first 'documented' Blackwell is that of John Blackwell of 1755 who married Hannah Cook. We have no documented proof at this time about his own parents, (see previous) so we do not know what family number to apply to him, as we do not know his true generation. Therefore, because he falls into the 10th Generation that we have established we have given him the family number of 10, meaning his generation.
