Alexander Daly, or George Alexander Daly as some records show, was born in Ireland about 1787. He was my Great-great-great-grandfather. Alexander and his wife Jane (maiden name unknown) lived for a number of years in East India and several his children were born there, in fact my Great-great-grandmother Margaret Amelia Daly was born in Calcutta. Eventually the family moved on to Canada where, it’s been said, Alexander was granted 100 acres of Crown land by the Canada Company in 1835. It’s assumed this was a reward for his service to the East India Company. Alexander Daly died 6 October, 1868 at the age of 81 years.
