The Common Room / James William Martin please
« on: Friday 16 February 18 20:09 GMT (UK)  »
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.

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.

The Common Room / Billy M Avery
« on: Tuesday 06 February 18 00:16 GMT (UK)  »
Need some help please in trying to track Billy.
 His was born 1918 Guildford and birth registered as Billy M Avery. The M probably is McClellan which was used for some of his siblings. Parents were Joseph McClellan Avery (1887-1936) and Ada Edmonds(1887-?). Nothing shows up using Billy and too many using William. There does not seem to be a death of the right age for a William 1918-40 so I thought maybe there is a military record but I did not see one.

Census Lookup and Resource Requests / Ada Stein - 1911
« on: Friday 02 February 18 17:10 GMT (UK)  »

The Common Room / John Richard Edmonds
« on: Thursday 25 January 18 20:37 GMT (UK)  »
John's birth registered 1870 Hambledon and appears in 1871 Wonersh, Surrey with parents George and Jane nee Baker. I can not find a trace of him after 1871. He does not appear with the family in 1881 nor is there a death record that I can find. There is a baptism record for him strangely showing his grandparents names in place of George and Jane.
Maybe someone can please help.

I would like to see an obit for Julia who supposedly died in Toronto in 1966. Born Julia Fear 1887 in England she married Robert Brownlee in Toronto. Hopefully her obit will also mention her husband whose death I can not find.


Canada / 1926 Western Provinces census
« on: Wednesday 17 January 18 12:23 GMT (UK)  »
I am under the impression that the 1926 western Provinces census is supposed to be released this year but I have not been able to find a release date. I assume that it will be available on the LAC site but what about commercial sites?  Anyone with info?


London and Middlesex / Bennett/Wilkinson
« on: Sunday 14 January 18 14:44 GMT (UK)  »
Spencer William Bennett and Annie Elizabeth Wilkinson married 12 Decc 1887 All Saints, Edmonton. Spencer born abt 1864, bachelor, paper stainer and father William-deceased. Annie born abt 1869, spinster, father Thomas- sand sifter. I found them in 1891 Shoreditch with son Spencer(1890). Spencer jr appears to die 1907 Brentford and father Spencer dies 1935 Brentford. Family does not seem to show in 1901 or in 1911. There is a 1944 marriage in Brentford for an Annie E Bennett and Hector Giffen but could not find deaths.
A witness to marriage was a Henry Bennett. There is a Bennett family living 1871 Holburn with mother Eliza(widow) and sons Spencer W and Henry A. Spencer born 1864 St Luke mmn Lockett. The earliest Bennett/Lockett child that I can find is William 1851 St Luke but can not find a Bennett/Lockett marriage. Unsure if this is correct Bennett family.
Annie Elizabeth prior to marriage is a mystery.
Need help plugging holes please
