6 According to Winthrop Bell, he has concluded that Jacob KUHN or Heinrich Kuhn (SR.) are likely the same person, referencing the pattern of changing forenames in records such as the Victualling List. The Heinrich Kuhn who appears in records past 1750/52 is clearly the son of this Jacob Heinrich and who was part of the family group who sailed from Rotterdam in 1750. At this time, definitive conclusions have not been validated and research is ongoing.  KUHN, Jacob (I14)

Watercolourist and army officer. Son of William Thomas Lyttleton. Though he lived inVan Diemen's Land for ten years, most of his surviving work is during his period in Halifax, Canada.
Watercolourist and army officer, third child and eldest son of the seven children of Anne and William Thomas Lyttleton , was born in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) when his father was on an army posting there and was baptised Westcote, a family name of the Lyttletons of Hagley Hall, Stourbridge, Worcestershire, to whom he was distantly related. The family was in England and Scotland in 1822-25, then migrated to Van Diemen’s Land whereWestcote remained for ten years. He left for London in February 1835, arriving in August in order to enter his father’s old college, the Royal Military Academy.
Commissioned ensign in 1837, lieutenant in 1839 and captain in 1845, Lyttleton was posted to Halifax, Nova Scotia, with the 64th Regiment in 1840 and arrived in October.In 1842 he married Joanna, eldest daughter of 'Governor’ PeterMcNab, a member of one of Halifax’s leading families. He purchased McNab Island off Halifax and lived therefor seventeen years. Carter calls his undated watercolour panorama of Halifax Harbour Seen from McNab’s Island (National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa) the masterpiece among the small numberof works of early Halifax known today. Although obviously a
very competent landscape sketcher before arriving in Canada, no Tasmanian work has been conclusively identified. This Canadian watercolour, however, is close in style to that of William Lyttleton’s Panshanger , allowing the presumption that his art training came as much from his father as from the drawing lessons he would have received atSandhurst. In 1853 W.W. Lyttleton ...

48 Nancy Redmayne Ross (née Thorne) born in Windsor, Ontario, 6 February 1916, died peacefully 12 March 2014, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at age 98.
Nancy will be lovingly missed by her sister, Mary White (née Thorne); sons, Peter (Yvette) and Michael; grandchildren, Marianne, Jennifer (Rob) and Julien; her great-granddaughter, Sophia and cousin, Barb Edwards (Art). She was predeceased by her parents, Gladys Mary Redmayne and Harvey Thorne and by the tragic loss of her first and last children, Davy and baby Ian.

Nancy had centuries old Nova Scotia family roots. She was educated at Halifax Ladies College and Dalhousie University (class of 1936) and worked with the YMCA-YWCA in Simcoe, Ontario and Glace Bay. She married RCAF officer Donald Ross in Regina in 1941. She lived in Halifax with their first child while Don served overseas. Don was posted to Ottawa after the war, returning with the family to England for a time in 1950.

Nancy made many interesting, life-long, friends where ever she lived, as the family moved during the next thirty years to Unionville, Ontario; Lexington, Massachusetts and, Los Altos, California. She was a fine hostess, cook and baker, drawing from her vast recipe collection. She was always knitting and tending her gardens and plants.

After Don’s retirement, Nancy devotedly researched and edited the journals of their great-grandfather, published in 1996 as ‘The Diary of a Maritimer, 1816-1901, The Life and Times of Joseph Salter.’ She and Don worked to protect Mi'kma petroglyphs rediscovered in the rocky barrens behind their Bedford home, eventually designated a National Historic Site.

The family thanks the thoughtful and caring staff at St. Vincent’s Nursing Home where Nancy spent her last years, especially Charles Anderson. Nancy’s cremated remains will be interred next to her husband Donald at Fairview Lawn Cemetery, Halifax, after a graveside service on Monday, March 17 at 11:00 am. A donation to The Friends of McNabs Island Society or to a charity of one’s choice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Unfortunately, unable to find digital copy of a baptismal record for Robert Cassels to confirm but the 3 sources are credible.  CASSELS, Robert (I239)
