About Dunkeld Falconers
Note that you can look up non-living people WITHOUT LOGGING IN by clicking on "People", and  then on "Last names". To see living people, you have to log in.

The Falconers on this site are descendants of Thomas Falconer  [ http://dunkeldfalconer.tribalpages.com/family-tree/dunkeldfalconer/1382/80/Thomas-Falconer- Family], a gunsmith, who married Helen Simpson in Dunkeld, Perthshire, Scotland in 1791. Their  marriage was against the wishes of Helen's father, a prominent Edinburgh merchant. At present  we are researching to try to uncover verifiable birth and death data for Thomas. Any  new information will be welcome. Thomas's son Duncan, who also became a gunsmith, and who married  Annie McGlashan, emigrated to Canada with his family around 1842, and established the Dunkeld  Falconer line in North America. This  site also contains other families who intermarried with  Falconers, such as Speers and Bartlemans.

There are notes and photos included for many of the individuals listed on this site. I hope you  enjoy reading about them. As in most families, there are some interesting people and  interesting questions, such as: Who were the parents of (Dunkeld) Thomas Falconer? Who were the  parents of William Speers, born in County Armagh, Ireland in 1751? (until recently, we thought  his father was James Speirs, born in Scotland in 1724. Now we are not so sure). Who  murderedJain Speers in Toronto in 1890?

Among the interesting people are Peter Bartleman (1795-1881), who added a wonderous clock tower  to his barn in Bruce County; Jacob Alexander Falconer (1869-1928), the youngest of 14 children,  who became a US congressman from the State of Washington; Constance Mott-Smith (1904-2001) who  came from a distinguished family of artists and Hawaiian nobility; and William Lynn Falconer  (1897-1989) who lied about his age to enlist in August 1914, and served at the front in  theCanadian cavalry until 1918, after which he became a doctor and later Regional Medical  Superintendant for Alberta, Northwest Territories and the Yukon.

Nonliving persons' histories are accessible to all visitors to this site without a password.  However living persons' data are accessible only to family members who have been invited.
