Narrative

There are no baptismal records for the children of John Ramsay and Margaret Penman. He was named as a son of John and Margaret in Past and Present of PEI. Margret Penman didn't have any brothers, but she may have named a son after David Penman, believed to be an uncle.

David married Sarah Carr in 1833.

David Ramsay, Secretary and Treasurer

There were three David Ramsay's in the 1861 census in Lot 13.
One, a farmer, had a household of 5, with no married people in the household. This was probably George Ramsay's son David.
The other, a merchant, had a household of 12. The merchant David Ramsay was 25 years into his lease. This seems the most likely one.
The third David Ramsay had a household of 9, with two married couples. (could also be Donald Ramsay?)

In the Islander newspaper January 1845, a David Ramsay of Lot 13 had a license for a tavern, and in Hutchinson's 1864 directory, David Ramsay of Port Hill had a hotel.
