This page is dedicated to the Faulkner Family and all of their descendants. Following will be information pertaining to the Faulkners that have a direct link to our McClinton/McLinton Families. Hopefully you will find a connection here to your ancestors. If that is the case, then please feel free to send an e-mail to the author of these pages and share information and possibly photos of your ancestors. Almost all of this information that we have put up on this page is with the help of some very dedicated researchers and ancestors of some these people mentioned. This branch of the Faulkners has been traced back to Belfast, County Antrim, N. Ireland in the late 1700's and their arrival to Canada has been found to be around 1824. They settled in Goulbourn Township, Carleton County, Ontario, Canada. Two of the Faulkner women, Mary and Margaret, married McClinton men, Peter and Hugh. So there is a very strong connection between the two families in Canada. Our information is alittle thin for the elder generation and we'd love to get more information on any of the following members, their spouses and children of these families.

             Robert Faulkner b: 1793 in Antrim County, N. Ireland. Died: November 6, 1865 in Goulbourn Township, Carleton County, Ontario, Canada.  Married to Mary McKibban b: 1791 in Antrim County, N. Ireland. Died: July 20, 1865 in Goulbourn Township, Carleton County, Ontario, Canada. Both are buried in St. John's Anglican Cemetery in Richmond, Goulbourn Township. Robert and Mary came to Canada in 1834 with 3 children and his sister Elizabeth, with her husband, Andrew Curren. Robert and Mary had seven children. Six daughters and one son. Mary and Margaret Faulkner's family information is completed on their respective husbands' sites with names and dates of offspring and spouses. Just click on their names to go to their information. More information would be appreciated concerning the remainder of Robert and Mary's daughters. please click the e-mail icon at the bottom of this page and send an e-mail.

St. John the Baptist Anglican Cemetery in Richmond, Goulbourn Twsp. Carleton County, Ontario was established in 1834. It is situated on Fortune Street in Richmond, Ont. between St. Phillip's Catholic and St Andrew's Presbyterian cemeteries on the east side of the street. The above photo was taken April 29, 2003. The following photos of the headstone were taken April 10, 2008. There is so much weathering on the headstone that it is almost impossibleto make out the engraved lettering on the stone. The water laying around the gravemarker and the mushy ground made it hard to get close to the headstone for better photos.

You can see the changes in the headstone's lettering and how much it has been affected by the years of exposure.
We are losing a great part of our past because of the ravages of time. The elements are taking a severe toll on
this particular link to our very important heritage. The actual lettering on the headstone reads as follows:
