Hello from Canada!!

Hi everyone,

I have been researching Gerrard from Prestwood Ellastone Staffordshire for about 5 years now. I am a newbie:D. I could use some help up here in the Great White North to better understand your culture and customs through the last few centuries.
My Gerrard family came to Canada around 1870 and I am not sure why they did unless it was to purchase their own land, but it seems to me they were landowners in England. They came with a large family....11 children; and they came later in their lives (the parents were well into their 40's). If anyone can share some light on this, it would be appreciated.
