I would be very grateful for any information about this man.

What I know already:
Son of Ernst Otto Johan AGILON and his wife Agnes Caroline (nee LYALL) who married in Sweden in 1882 (I have a copy of marriage entry)
I know he is living in England (Headington, Oxford) in 1901, and on the 1911 Canada Census he is living with his Uncle Gustaf GYLLING and Aunt Fanny (nee LYALL) in Montreal, Canada.
He marries Mary Agnes Shappert (who was b  Jul 1906 in Saskatchewan) haven't found  a marriage yet, but her name I found on Family Search with his Death. Her parets were Lawrence Shappert and Amelia, and according to Family Search, come from Austria, Poland (sic) (There were 2 other siblings Helen and John) on the 1916 Canada Census, and that said that John and Amelia had arrived in 1902 - but I couldn't find anything on Ellis Island.

I'd be very grateful for any information on any of these to get me further with this family.
Regards
Jan

You could try contacting the Kelowna branch of the Okanagan Public Library to see if they can find obituaries in the local newspaper. Here's a link to their website:
http://www.orl.bc.ca/branches/kelowna

Here is a link to the transcript of a BC death registration for a son of Ernest and Mary named John Burpee Aquilon: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FLBF-GVP The record indicates John was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan which makes it most likely that Ernest and Mary were married in that province. Unfortunately the Saskatchewan vital stats genealogy database doesn't yet include marriages. As well, the prices for a search and copy of a marriage registration in Saskatchewan are outrageously expensive.

Looks like Ernest served in WW1. Here is a link to his Attestation papers. There is info about how to order his complete military file in the upper right corner.

Ernest signs his name as Aquilon.

You can try Canada411 for this name. There are presently very few in all of Canada. Contact may turn up a rellie.

Thank you Valerie
I found the two deaths after posting my message - thank you for the clues on Canada411, will follow them up.


PB Thanks for the link for the attestation papers - I think perhaps the mistake with the spelling of surname came from wrongly transcribed records in England.

Thank you Jacquie, I have contacted Kelowna Library

I see from non-conformist marriage his father was Otto Julius Aguilon
How old was he when he was married...? This may not be the right one as that might be a standard naming, not Finspang & obviously only a few are transcribed as yet...but here is one with spelling of Aqvilon to show the q was used in Sweden as well, there are a few on here...
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FG91-K74

Not saying this is yours as this is a standard forenaming but looking at the surnaming there may be other issues to throw a wrench into in your search... https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/F2MD-L5D

I have his father as being Ernst Otto Johan Aquilon and his mother was an English woman Agnes Caroline Lyall and they married in Sweden 02 Nov 1882.

Transcript of Marriage

No 20


 


Ernst Otto Johan Aguilon, son of Otto Julian Aguilon, deceased and Agnes Catherine Lyall, daughter of Thomas Lyall, deceased, both of full age, were married by me according to the Rites and Ceremonies of the Church of England on this 2nd day of November ,1882 after due publication of Banns


 


M E Snepp


British Chaplain


 


 


Ernst Aguilon  )     Witness our Hands


Agnes Lyall     )


 


 


Gust Petersohn    )    In our Presence


Maria Nordenfelt  )


 


The Official Non-Conformist and Non-Parochial BMDs Service   - Reference RG33/153

I wonder about them being married by a British Chaplain - just because she was English or someother reason??

I have no other info about Ernst Otto Johan other than the marriage - have had no luck in finding anything further. Agnes died in New Jersey in 1906, and it is stated that she was a resident of Montreal, Quebec.
For Ernst I have a birth reference listed as Sweden, Births from the Swedish Death Index 1901-2006, but this is an Ancestry reference and I do not have World Wide Ancestry subscription - and I don't know where else to look.
Regards
Jan
