Notes for John Cunningham:

JOHN CUNNINGHAM, was born 17 Dec 1823 in England; and married Mary Ann Cannon in 1847 at Stepney, England. John was a Reverend in the Church of England and came to North America in 1847 from England to seek sites and establish churches for The Church of England, in Newfoundland, which is now a part of Canada. He died 10 March 1894 in Newfoundland. Mary Ann was born before 3 Oct 1827 in London, England; and died 25 Nov 1898 in Newfoundland. To this couple a son was born: John Cannon Cunningham.

Mary Ann Cannon's fathers name was John Cannon who had a brother named Robert. Robert brought a sea chest back to London from South America before he died in 1820; and gave it to his brother John, who passed it on to his daughter Mary Ann. The chest is still in the family and passed on from the grandparent to the oldest grandson. Mary Ann started the tradition by passing the chest on to John Cannon Cunningham in August 1927; who passed it on to John Steven Cunningham. The significance of this is that the Cannon/Cunningham History was listed on the inside of the chest lid.

It is believed that John Cunningham's brother, Phillip Cunningham, was Canon at Winchester Cathederal in London. Phillip had a son named Andrew who had a daughter named Sue.
