The Ellis Family of Bideford and PEI

This site is very much in the making. It is written by Andy Ellis, resident of Croydon, Surrey, UK and descendant of Johan Ellis who lived in the Bideford in the 16th Century.

To help any Ellis researchers, this is the family which had the shipbuilding businesses in Bideford, Devon and at Port Hill, PEI in the 19th Century, and after whom the Ellis River is named.

It is hoped to grow this site with more family data from both sides of the Atlantic.

A few scans of the family tree (Valerie Ellis). Johan (1549) to 1848 , Robert and Mary – these scans are quite poor – I will redo them shortly.
