Hi All;
 
My great great grandfather was Phillip Trowse of Corpusty England (Norfolk).  He was married 
in this town to Anne Earle on the 18th day of April 1836.  They came to Canada and settled 
in Chelsea, Quebec.  Phillip was the son of Phillip and Mary Trowsse (nee Drake).

Mary Trowsse (daughter of Phillip and Anne) married William Caldwell Poole on Aug 6 1857 
in Aylmer Methodist Church.
