Do you have access to Ancestry trees?

There is a tree on Ancestry that has a wife for Richard Cameron Lane ......an Ethel Bromby. There is no source for this particular fact but other parts of the tree appear to have the correct siblings for Richard. 2 unnamed daughters are also shown. As it turns out, the Bromby family are living a few doors away from the Lanes in the 1921 census.....same page as I posted earlier.

We need to be careful with online trees, but if you have access you may be able to contact the owner.

You can access Canadian censuses for free through this website (Library and Archives Canada)....

Also some for free through this one.....

The Lanes can be found in Ontario before they ended up in Saskatchewan.

It will be great if they turn out to be yours.

Many thanks for this, PolarBear. Yes, I do have access to Ancestry trees - I’ve actually added the Hull/Lane family as a ‘mirror tree’ to see if that draws anything out of the ‘woodwork’.  There’s also always the possibility that there’s a ‘non-parental event’ somewhere, which would complicate matters!

I really appreciate your help as I haven’t needed to navigate Canadian records before.

I think I’m getting somewhere..  Could you possibly check the birth details for
RICHARD EDMUND LANE, BORN ONTARIO 3 Oct 1856. 
His father is probably William Lane. Not on Familysearch (though his will is!)

I have traced various other lines back to the UK - but still no match..

Many thanks. Joan

Richard and wife Mary Irving are both buried in Woodlawn Saskatoon.  She died 1923 he in 1928. 
Birth registrations in Ontario were not mandatory until 1869 and even then many were not registered.
