Genealogy of

Thomas Huestis (1759 - 1851)
in Nova Scotia

Thomas Huestis was born in White Plains, NY and moved to Wallace, Nova Scotia after the American Revolution (known to our patriot cousins as "The War of Independence"). Thomas had 11 children and many grandchildren, and most of the Huestis' in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island are his descendants. In addition, there has been a steady stream of Huestis emigration back to the USA in the last 150 years, with the result that Thomas's descendants are spread all over the continent.

The principal focus of this website is to document the Huestis family from Thomas Huestis on down to present day. I am also documenting the Huestis connection to Wallace, so you will find pictures and maps of Wallace here, as well as archival writings on life in Wallace over the past 200 years.

Thomas Huestis had brothers and cousins who stayed in New York and raised their families and got on with their lives. Those American cousins are not my principal focus but I am providing links to information on them where I can.

There are at least two other Huestis families in Atlantic Canada that I know of, and curiously, they seem to be orphan lines. A William Huestis moved from Staten Island to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 1798. My contacts are unsure of who his parents were and how he fits into the New York family. And a Philip Huestis moved to Saint John, New Brunswick as a Loyalist, and his antecedents are not well established. I have links to some information on these lines.



I am leaving this list here so the Google bot can find it, but please follow the link above to the new site!

Here's a list of the first few generations of descendants of Thomas Huestis and two of his sons: Joshua Huestis of Wallace and James Huestis, farmer at Wallace Station. No person on this list is living now.

I do not have good information of the children of Thomas' two sons who moved to Prince Edward Island to make their lives and raise their families. Nathaniel had a large family, and I have some names and dates for that line. Peter Huestis also had a family and I have heard from some of his living descendants but I do not have good information on any of them. I would be pleased to hear from people with information on those lines.
