Profile Information

Your name
Dan WJJT Griffin

Cree - Leamington, Ontario, Canada

  I am married to the great-granddaughter of William Cree (1854-1922) s/o Thomas Cree and Maria Bishop Walker who married Edith Mary Holt through their son Arthur Stanley Holt Cree 1887-1973.  Both William Cree and son Arthur Stanley Holt Cree were Anglican Church Ministers. 

  I possess through my mother-in-law, Stanley's daughter, all the events in their lives, the pictures of many Cree's from the family and the letter's back and forth from the family in England and here in Ontario.

  Also the very old family heirloom Cree Necklace handed down through the generations in possession of a very old family member here which the Cree women used to wear when their were getting married.  I have a picture of this necklace.

  TRUTH or FACT? - This is a family story handed down in my wife's family through the years and generations of how the Cree family began....

   Creetown (Scotland-believed to be where the Cree's originated by the family) was or is on the Scottish side of the border between England and Scotland.  Belief was that at the time of the Spanish Armada, a Spanish soldier was shipwrecked off the coast of Scotland, swam ashore and fell in love with a Cree girl.  The government would let them marry only if he took her last name instead of his.  The family believes there is Spanish blood in their line due to this.

    Creetown is on the east shore of Wigtown Bay.in messaging with 

Her line comes down from the Sprotborough, Yorkshire lineage of William Cree. 

I would be interested in messaging through here with others from this lineage.
