John Boyes was a native of Dumfriesshire, Scotland originally .
John Boyes and wife Elizabeth Richardson settled in Wellesley, Ontario, Canada after a time in Three Rivers, Quebec, Canada where their son
William Boyes was born in 1822. William Boyes married Christina Watson (a native of Glasgow, Scotland) in Canada. Together they had
11 children.
William's son John Richardson Boyes moved west, settling in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada.
