The Secord family in Edmonton can trace its roots to the James Secord family of Ontario (1700's), and earlier to the Ambroise Sicard family in New Rochelle, New York (1600's).

Richard Henry Secord came to Edmonton as a young man from Ontario in 1881. He married Annie York and they had five children - Lillian Laura, Annie Helena (Lena), Imogene (Gene), Richard York, and Isobel.

Lillian Laura died in infancy. Lena Secord married Alexander McFadyen, Gene Secord married George Keltie, and Richard York married Margaret Calder.

Richard York Secord and Margaret Secord had one son, Richard David Secord, and one adopted son, Ken Kirsch Secord.

Richard David Secord married Delle Calhoun and they had seven children - Richard Calhoun, Christopher, David, Dean, Kerry, Laura, and Mark.
