Hi there!  I have an ancestor David Jarvis, b. 1813 in Kincardineshire, who emigrated from Scotland to New York in the 1840s. While his wife Helen McGregor (m. 1838 Dundee, resided 1840 Linlithgow) and their two children (William and Mary Jane) returned to Scotland, where Helen remarried Charles Douglas, David disappears completely.  Did he die in an influenza outbreak?  Head West in search of gold and not keep in touch? I seem to have DNA matches that have Jarvis in their family trees, but that may be coincidental, as I've had no luck connecting them to my Jarvis family. The name is just so common.  If this rings any bells for anyone, I'd love to know!

My name is Edward Jarvis and live in suburbs of Cleveland,Ohio in United States.  I am married to Carrie Sines Jarvis and have a son Adam Jarvis.  My mother (Denise Pidgeon Jarvis) and father (Joseph Jarvis who just passed Oct. 2012).

To distinguish myself from the other Christine Jarvis: I am in Canada. I'm new to this site / beginner at tracing my family. My grandfather was William Jarvis, also called Jack (John). William was sent to Canada with his brother Joe (Joseph) Jarvis, I believe by Barnardo schools pre-1918 (WW1). They worked farms in northern Ontario (Coldwater area). William married Blanche Wilson of Honey Harbour, Ontario Canada. William & Blanche had two children: my father Lavern Allan Jarvis, and Devere Frieda Jarvis (now Saunders). Would like to go back before William to his family, all of whom remained in England, as far as I know. Many thanks for any help!

I have run into a brick wall researching my Jarvis family. I have traced my roots back to Joseph Jarvis 1707-1781 in Fritwell England.  I believe his parents were John 1680-1716 and Elizabeth (I think of Stoke Lyne) but I cannot find any information on them (will, marriage, death).  Our branch of the family ended up going to Canada in 1855.  I have yet to find any living relatives in England. Is there anyone who can help me ? 

Thank you!

I have many William Jarvis's in my tree. My husband's dad was George Hamilton Jarvis b1908 He had a brother William Henry b 1900 Their father was William Henry b 1871 his father was William Jarvis b1845 in Fritwell (next to Souldern) a farmer It says on his marriage cert to Eliza Parker in Feb1871 that his father is also William Jarvis a farmer. But I cannot find a trace of either from this. The only William born in the Souldern area was born to a Caroline Jarvis August 1844. Caroline has no husband mentioned but is the daughter of James Jarvis 1796 and Ann Biddle. James is the brother of William b 1801 who I see has married Elisabeth Neary in 1837. So I have the same family line as Sylvia Back. Be good to compare.

Hi Shauna
I have a William Jarvis born 1801 in Souldern Oxfordshire, he was the son of James Jarvis and Ann nee Slatter, however, I have him marrying Elizabeth Neary in Paddington London in 1834 and dying there in 1866.
There are a lot of Jarvis in the Souldern area of Oxfordshire so maybe yours come from around this area.
I have traced my Jarvis/Jarvice line back to 1734 in this village.

My partner's gg grandfather was a William Jarvis born ca 1801, who had a sister Hannah Jarvis born ca 1804 and they arrived in Hobart, Australia in 1824.Their mother Hannah Jarvis also came out to Tasmania as she died there in 1853. There are many Jarvis descendants in Australia today but we have not been able to find them in the UK. Does anyone have the names William and Hannah in their families?

Looking for relatives of the Jarvis family from Blythe Marsh - SE of Stoke on Trent in the Potteries. They were potsellers and to some extent itinerant and wandered from Stoke down to Penzance in the West Country.

Specific line is John bc 1803 and Grace (nee Heath) - through their son Samuel bc 1833
