My Grandma Ethel Downey,(nee Hartley) born London England 1879-died 1931 in London Ontario Canada.  She visited & stayed with relatives living at- 118 High St, Seven Oaks, Kent.  She had 5 sisters in England and 1 brother,all born between 1862 & 1879. The last living relative died in 1962. She went to England to see a doctor,, and I wish to know surname of person(s) living at this address who were related to her.  I reside in London Ontario Canada and have no idea how else to obtain this information.  Your help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.  Janet

could you post the names of siblings (including married names )?
Did any of the relatives visit Ethel in Canada?

Ethel & Leonard returned to Canada from England in September 1930, last address was 127 Perryvale, Forest Hill. Was this when they went to Sevenoaks

I see the Sevenoaks address was their destination in 1929

What you need is an electoral register look up for 1929 Sevenoaks.  This should be possible as you have the address but would be best posted on the Kent look up board

It would also help us take a different 'route' if you can give us the information Suzard has requested

I put the address in this format: (118 High Street Sevenoaks) into a google IMAGES search, and a 1901 page of census came up. If it does indeed relate to this particular address, 118 was a drapers shop.

Further down the images page is 116 of 1911 census.

Hello Johnw65: Thank you so much for the 2 adds. I am so happy to be filling in part of this family. It appears William Whyntie was ready to retire as his wife Annie died the following year.   I am thinking that since he was at 114, 116 & 118 his  business was very lucrative. In 1937 the war was in its beginnings and a good time to close shop. So nice to know who Grandma was staying with.
