Can anyone help with information about John Pye b. 1748 in Falmouth, Cornwall. He was in Carbonear, Nfld by 1765. I’m trying to prove he was father of Blanche Pye b. 1765. Blanche Pye married William Pye, a distant relative who had been held captive during the American Revolution and was released in Nfld at the end of the war. This Pye family settled at Cape St. Charles, Labrador.
Mr grandfather, Jesse deLacy Pye, was born at Cape St. Charles, married Nora Edith Carmichael in Halifax and they immigrated to Boston around 1900.
Does any of this information help? Not directly, I think.
