3 Generations My father was able to trace our branch of the Halsteads back to the birth of Abraham Halstead (circa 1570) in Lancashire, England. His son,Jonas, was born 1610 in Yorkshire. Jonas's son, Timothy, was born 1633 in Heapstead, Long Island, New York. Timothy was followed by Joseph(1665), Samuel (1705) Thomas (1735), and Stephan (1773). After the War of American Independence Stephan crossed over into Canada as a United Empire Loyalist, with his wife, Amelia, and settled in Belleville, Ontario. Their four children, Thomas, Jonas, Samuel and Deborah were the first of our family born as Canadians. Four generaltions later I was born as the fifth generation of the Halsteads in Canada
