James Edward WHYTE, from UK to USA 1899-1920
« on: Monday 30 May 11 12:07 BST (UK) »
James is on the US 1920 census in Providence RI (source FamilySearch - surname is transcribed as WHYTT)

Film Number: 1821673 Digital Folder Number: 4385047 Image Number: 00034 Sheet Number: 13

James (49), wife Enid (51), three children (Malcolm(25), Mavis(23) and Eileen(20)) all born UK, youngest born 1899 or 1900.

I would like to find details of their voyage, and what happened to Enid and the children after James died (in RI, 1926).  Maybe 1930 US census, or a return voyage to UK??

Many thanks for any help.

Hi Jonathan

They arrive via Canada on board the Pomeranian, from Glasgow into Quebec, Canada on 11 October 1899.  

Malcolm is 5, Mavis 3 and Eileen 1.   It gives Malcolm and Mavis being born in Canada though with parents and Malcolm and Mavis as "returning Canadians".  Have you found the children definitely being born in the UK?  According to the manifest only Eileen was born in Scotland, but the census' give them born in the UK

There is a journey recorded in 1930 for Enid:-

Southampton to New York, arriving NY on 1 August 1930 on board the Berengaria. this record gives her naturalisation on 30 September 1929 at Rhode Island District Court at Providence.  Her address is recorded as 1077 Smithfield Avenue, Saylesville, Pawtucket.

all the census' are giving UK births but that 1899 manifest  is the only one that's different.   think we need to find the childrens births to be sure.
