Thank you Sandra- I had not considered that. What is the date please of the sailing that you have given. Really appreciate all your help as this is a tricky web to untangle.

Is there any way to see if William Sinton came back to the UK from Canada on a visit between March 1920 and March 1923 please?


I see from his m/c he married 17 Feb 1920 a Margaret Annie Hunt,
she arrived Canada Aug 1920 and came back to UK in Feb 1921 and left again Oct 1923
with a child age 2
(added - I see her child was registered in Dorset Jun qtr. 1921 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QV34-VYYQ

Margaret Annie Sinton age 40 immigration Aug 1920, husband W H Sinton
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2HGX-V9Q

Margaret Sinton age 40 wife, address Durwerton Dorset
St John, New Brunswick, Canada
11 Feb 1921 London, England
Ship Corsican

Margaret Sinton age 43, last address in UK 40 Durwerton Blanford Dorset
intended permanent residence Canada
25 Oct 1923 Southampton
Port arival Montreal, Canada
Ship Melita

Sorry donít have the full details for Margaret on Canadian Passenger List but I'm sure if you require them someone on here will be able to provide you with the full details

One to discount - Canadian Passenger List - troops returning to Canada - Sgt William Sinton  (no age given) - from Witley Owen Camp Surrey and travelling Southampton to Halifax Nova Scotia -  arriving 14 September 1919 on the Minnekahda. Regt -15 Bn   Unit 55 Bn - next of kin father - place of residence Ruxton NB

A middle name has never been mentioned -- perhaps another to discount  ??? Troops returning -
 William R Sinton arriving 2 July 1919 - Liverpool to Halifax Nova Scotia - Regt CASC Unit CASC 195 th - next of kin mother - no residence/no age.

Haha completely understandable!!!!!

Short of actually ordering the birth cert for his daughter Eunice Sinton, I have narrowed her birth down to being between 11th Feb 1921 and 13th May 1921- in UK.

Is there any way i can find the exact DOB? I have checked BMD but they only go as far as 1916.

Many thanks

It is such a priviledge to be looking into this family as both william's father and uncle were both Chelsea pensioners too :)
