King & Richards Family Trees

Because “William King” is not a sufficiently unique name in England, it has been virtually impossible to trace the ancestry of William Stuart King (1842-1910), Flora’s father.  However, Flora’s maternal ancestors are descendants of Charles Richards of Cornwall, England; and, we have included that family tree.

These trees were assembled from information generously provided by cousins: Carlos Richards (Brazil), James Bell (Canada), Jo Walker (England), and Patrick Cook (USA) (ordered by country).
