Jared Tozer was my 1st relative in N America, if anyone has any info on pre Jared from Devon it would be appreciated.

How many Tozer's are there in the U.S.?

I had two great uncles who emigrated to Canada from Devon, England during the first world war. Their names were Charlie Tozer and George Tozer. I think George's wife was called Gertrude, and they had a daughter. If anyone out there knows the whereabouts of any descendants I'd be grateful for any information.


My grandfather, Edmund or  Edward W. Tozer was a logger in Wisconsin in the 1920's. He was born at Pine River, WI. He married Frances Speas in Merrill, WI on 6-6-1910. They had 12 children total and all but 5 are still living in Minnesota and Texas. Any information would be welcomed.


I am trying to trace descendants of John (born 1806) or Charles (born 1814) Tozer who were sons of  William & Christian Tozer (ne Pitts) of Coleford near Crediton Devon UK

Anyone with information please mail back

Subject: Tozer Family - Somerset, England

My paternal grandfather was William Henry Tozer, born on June 17, 1886 in Hunspil, Somerset, England.  He had one brother Victor that I know about.  William Henry (or Harry as he was known) moved to New York with his family about 1871, later to Nebraska.  About 1903, he moved to Ponoka, Alberta, Canada with his wife; later moving to Ponoka, Alberta onto a homestead.  He died in 1912, leaving two children that would survive to adulthood.  The oldest, Gordon Raymond Tozer, was my father, who died in 1992.
Since the Tozers are relatively rare, and because our family tree hasn't traced very far back so far, I thought this was worth a shot.  Any comments from family connections would be welcome.

I am interested in Tozers who lived in Warren and Erie counties in Pennsylvania from 1850-1980. Especially William and Harriet (Dunn) Tozer who lived in Columbus, PA 1850-1890, and their families. I have further information about this part of the Tozers if anyone is interested, and I am very interested in a connection between these Tozers and the ones in Clearfield Co PA during the same period of time.

My mother was a Tozer. I have information regarding the Tozers of Erie, PA.  I am especially interested in finding more information re the Tozers (Ebenezer) of Susquehanna County, PA cir 1822.

I am looking for Tozer family in London area.  My Mother says the last she heard they lived at Ramsgate at the end of World War IIThe Tozers I'm looking for are Alice Tyler who married Edward Tozer.  They had children Alice Ted and Vic.  Alice Tyler Tozer would be my great aunt (my grandfather's sister).  My grandparents moved from England to New Zealand after WW I.  There names were Sydney Tyler and Jessie Elizabeth Noon.  The daughter Alice died when she was fairly young lady (about 13 I think) and growing up I read some of her books that had been sent to my Mother.  Alice & Sydney's parents were Sydney Tyler and Annie Rice.   This Sydney had a brother Jake who was a solicitor.  This is about all the information I have so I'd appreciate any info anyone can give me.

Thank you.

'Our' TOZER was James born Nov 1832 near Plymouth (Egg Buckland), Devon, son of John (born c.1790 Shaugh Prior, Devon) and Elizabeth Tozer. James married Mary Ann Pearce of Plympton and they immigrated to Port Hope, Ontario, Canada in 1857 or 1858.  We have traced most of the descendents but we are stuck on tracing the Devonshire Tozers back in history before 1830s.

We'd be thrilled to hear from anyone about Plymouth Tozers ancestors or James Tozer's siblings he left behind.

I am looking for information relative to the Tozer family that originated in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania in the late 19th century. My grandfather was a Slyvester Merritt Tozer, who was born in Pennsylvania and married a Sophia Williams.
Of historical note, I came upon a Julius Tozer, who was notable in that he fought in both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.  After sustaining injuries in the latter conflict, he went on to be a two term sherriff of Bradford County, Pennsylvania.
In any case, I would be very grateful to hear from anyone who has information on the Tozer families of Pennsylvania and particularly on Sylvester and the Merritt-Tozer family connection.

Watchng the Chicks, Henry SpernonTozer I am trying to find any information possible about several pieces of art. We have one piece, beautifully done, a woman in a farm yard sitting on a stool watching some small chicks. The picture is signed H.S. Tozer 1920. I am hoping that you may know of this person and could shed some light on him for me. I don't know where he was born and lived, if he was married or had children and would appreciate hearing from you . Sincerely

I am researching the Toze family [they dropped the "r" somewhere along the line]. It appears to be one single extended family coming from the Somerset Devon border, and most especially the town of Bampton in Devon. I am in contact with several other Toze descendents. My own connection is from a Great[x3] Grandmother - Eliza Toze [b1839 Bampton]. I'd be most interested in hearing from anyone with links or information regarding this family.

From: Elizabeth Tozier

I am currently trying to trace 'J. Tozer' who was a 'greaser' on the TITANIC. The crew information lists a 'J. Tozer' not a C. Tozer ( Chris did not have a second initial 'J') and Christopher's profession on his marriage certificate is 'steward' (not akin to engine room tasks one would think). So the mystery deepens. So far we know that Christopher married Rose Florence Howick on 2 Oct 1911. At the time of marriage he was 34. Do you know of any of these Tozer's, or have you come across anyone else requesting information on same. If you have any info, or suggested contacts I would love to hear from you.
Thanks, and cheers - Kerina (Sydney, Australia)
