Re your James McAdams. Did he wed Mary Douglas Thompson and have a son Robert Thompson McAdams? If so I can provide some info re Roberts family if required

Could be. When he married he stated that he was living in Horsham which I believe is in Sussex

Thanks

The Common Room / James William Martin please

I am having a hard time trying to trace him. He married Martha Edmonds 1905 in Guildford. Supposedly born abt 1878 and his father was shown as James Martin - nurseryman. I can not find them in 1911 nor can I find him prior to marriage.

Thanks but I have seen those records. Seperately I have been trying to find death of Leonards wife Dorothy Violet nee Russell without much success. I am not sure if Leonard and Dorothy stayed together as a 1965 voter record shows her with person that I assume is her son with no Leonard shown.

Thanks everyone. Hard to say if they did or did not marry. If they did they certainly did not seem to spend much time together.

Freebmd has no William K Hampton births but there is a William Hampton 1883 Guildford which is where Annie lived. He could be the friend on her immigration/arrival papers. If there was a marriage it was a quickie in order to show up for 1921 census

Thanks AMBLY
When I was at the library I neglected to make a note of everything. There is also a passenger manifest for her where it states that she is returning to husband WK Hampton so he is William K Hampton of Vancouver or West Vancouver. He is a mystery

Canada Lookup Request / Annie Simmonds Leroy marriage
« on: Friday 09 February 18 21:46 GMT (UK)  »
I am having trouble finding a marriage for Annie.
Annie Simmonds born 1874 Guildford. She married Charles Felix Leroy 1903 and they had son Leonard Stanley Felix in 1904. Charles died in 1919 and Annie came to Canada. When Leonard came to Canada in 1923 he said he was going to mother Annie Hampton of West Vancouver. Annie Hampton died 26 Oct 1953 and death reported by son Leonard. Death cert described her as divorced and husband had been William Hampton. Leonard died 1972 Vancouver.
I can not find a marriage in BC records nor in Western States index. If I remember correctly when Annie came to Canada her stated destination was Vancouver.
