I am researching the various Knapp families that reside in the Province of Ontario, Canada. Some families immigrated from Germany to Canada; others immigrated from England; while oher families originated from either England/Germany and came to Canada via the United States (ie United Empire Loyalists).

As for myself, I am descended from Sgt Joseph Knapp, UEL and his wife Elizabet Nettleton who arrived in Canada after the American Revolution and settled with their children in the Leeds & Grenville County area of Ontario. I am still trying to determine who were his parents. He is most likely descended from either Nicholas Knapp or Willam Knapp, two Knapps who arrived from England in the late 16 hundreds.

If you have any additional information regarding any of these families or have corrections or amendments regarding any of these families, please contact me by e-mail. I strive to provide family informaton as accurate as possible.

My own personal Knapp family line originated with Sgt Joseph Knapp, UEL and his wife Elizabeth Nettleton. They came to Canada and settled in the Leeds & Grenville County area.
