The Descendants of Benjamin John Perry

The Wesleyan Methodist Perrys of PEI and Beyond

There were other Wesleyan Perrys on the island that are not listed here such as Joseph Perry who married Jessie Gillis. In 1881 they resided in Charlottetown Royalty. It is possible that he was the son of Benjamin’s brother Joseph and his wife Grace Swift. David Perry (below) was likely married to Jane Wadman in 1852. Jane and her children are shown in the 1881 census in lot 28. Any information that can confirm or disprove anything in this file is appreciated.
