Narrative

George Ellis, jun, bachelor, Bideford shipyard Lot 12 was married after proclamation of banns to Ellen McArthur, spinster of the same township in 1826, C of E St. Eleanor's records.

According to the History of the Ellis Family, George married Bridget McArthur. However, there is no marriage record for George and Bridget, and all of the baptismal records for this family were under George and Ellen or Eleanor. They did name one daughter Bridget - however, while none of George's children named a daughter Bridget, they all had a daughter Eleanor, after their mother. Bridget seems to be a typo in the book.

George was in the 1841 census in Lot 12, a ship-builder, with a household of 10: 9 born on the Island and 1 in England. They were all Church of England. 3 males and 5 females under 16; one male and one female between the ages of 16 and 45.

In 1847, George Ellis purchased land from Neil McArthur in Lot 13. (Land conveyance records, vol 57 (467))

The Alma, a barque of 356 tons, was built in 1854 at Port Hill by George Ellis.

The History of the Ellis Family says they had children Robert, Neil, Penrose, Lavinia, Elizabeth, Zena, and Annie. The PEI Baptismal Index lists Ann Yeo, Anna (or Hannah) Penrose, Bridget Lavinia, Ellen Ezina, Maria, Neil, William and Robert Henry.
