I am looking for my wife's family name of Manton. Her parents are Ann-Marie Hardwick born 18 Jun 1946 and Geoffery James Manton born 22 Sep 1942 (she thinks). Her grandfather was Stanley Manton and he came from England in the early 1900's. Her parents wer
born in Woodstock Ontario, her grandfather was a shoe maker and his father was John Manton. Can you please help, I've been able to trace my history back to the 1400's but can't find anything on hers. All I know is that she was told there is a rifle/shotgun in the Toronto museum that was made by someone she's related to. I looked it up and Joseph Manton from England was a recognized gunsmith and he passed it down to his son's, 2 of whom came to Canada. Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thank you.
