Dear Jane,


From the information and the exchanges of letters on your web site. I see there is a Nicola Patterson seeking information about the Cannams and some details from Jan Cannam in New Zealand.


I am Henry Stafford Arthur Cannam.


I can trace our immediate family tree from the present day back to around 1790 through seven generations. My Grandfather was Arthur Gould Cannam born in Stoke-on-Trent (born 1868 - died 1933) Arthur had 3 brothers and 1 sister. The oldest brother was James William born 1864 married in 1884 but went to South Africa with another woman!


We believe there was a son, Harry, by his first marriage. My Great Grandfather was John Samuel (born 1834 died 1895). He lived in St Ives, Huntingdon. He married Alice Gould (born 1831) in 1862. He had a brother Charles, Christopher (Born 1819) who died in Australia in 1879.


Hope this information might be of use and I would love to hear more from Nicola or Jan if they have information on our family.




Stafford Cannam
