Plant Family History
1550 – 1919
In the early part off the 16th century, Henry VIII mandated the collection of birth records and in 1550, Lawrence Plant came to be registered in the town of Leek Staffordshire in England, a town close to the Welsh border.
In the 464 years since, almost every generation of the family has moved through towns like Leek, Swynnerton, Uttoxeter, Tur Langton, Little Bowden, Ringstead, Market Harborough, Oundle, London and finally Vancouver where Joseph Eugene Plant came in 1910. They have been yeoman farmers, publicans, brick makers, bakers and entrepreneurs and are now scattered all over North America.
