Help with address
« on: Thursday 29 January 09 16:52 GMT (UK) »
Hi there,

I believe I have found my gr grandfather arriving back in England in October, 1919,

On the passenger list he states that his destination is

64 Steane Road, Seaford, Sussex.

I would really like to know what was at that address, I've tried googling it and I can't seem to find it, but think maybe it was a typo and should be Steyne?

He was in the CEF and during WW1 was stationed in Seaford, Sussex, he came back to Canada in May of 1919, only to dissappear.   The picture of my avatar is the family he left behind  :(

Thanks for any help

Hi Karen

It could have just been a relatives address, or just an intended address for when he returned home. Was he married by this time?

Oh Pete, thanks that would be great!!

Ben, my gr grandfather left his wife and children in Canada and returned to England and had a second family.  It has been a mystery up to about 10 years ago as to where he dissappeared to.  In 1921 he has another child in B'ham and then moved to Wales and had 3 more.  By this time he has changed his name back to Gandley and remains a Gandley till he dies.  In Canada, he had changed the name to Stanley upon arriving in 1906 and we are still Stanley's here.

His name was Joseph Gandley born 1880 in B'ham.  I've never found a marriage for him to his second wife, but I have found the son they had in Birmingham and then the other 3 children in Wales.

Joseph Gandley married Elizabeth Ball (my gr grandmother and his first wife) in 1903 in Birmingham.  Their first son Joseph L. Gandley was born in 1904, but died the same year.
