The 'other' Robert Ellis

Not the son of William (of Ellis and Chanter) but his 1st cousin.

Robert Ellis emigrated from Bideford (UK) to PEI in 1819. He was a master mechanic in the cabinet builders' trade and did the finish work of all the ships built at Green's Shore. He also owned and occupied the land that was later - and possibly still - known as Summerside East.
