 I have found the marriage of Gladys Compton and Austin Cyril Ayre it took place on the 2 Nov 1920 in York Ontario.Is it possible that he,did a runner for whatever reason? I can't find anything about him in latter years in Canada or Uk.
  Whether she married Gordon Rutledge I don't know,if she did,was she committing  bigamy?

Full info on the Compton-Ayre marriage

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QKM5-CPTS


Also, they were together in 1921 in Simcoe East with daughter Margaret. After that he seems to disappear. We've all done lots of searching as you can see from the postings on this thread.

No sign of a marriage to Gordon Rutledge  but if there was one and no divorce and Austin was still alive, it would have been bigamous.

 I contacted the registery office in Toronto,who directed me to archives,they couldn't find a Rutledge/Compton marriage but now it's looks like it's Rutledge/Ayre I'll try again for the 1st marriage.If there was a second it must have been some years later.
  What does it say on the birth certificates of their children,does it give a marriage date?
  Having said that,I've come across people who lied about marriages on a childs birth certificate.

Gadget Hi
  Are you saying that Gladys and Austin had a daughter Margaret?

If they find anything, do let us know.

I wonder if it's possible to find out and contact the granddaughter on the Find a Grave link?

On the 1921 census in Simcoe East. I'll see if I can find the link again.

?204 Denelday Street, Simcoe East (District 126).

Search on Gladys Hare. Daughter Margaret looks to be 1 on original.

(an aside - I remember visiting  Simcoe one hot summer in the late 1960s!)

 I told Susan,the grandaughter that I would look for her grandparents marriage as she couldn't find it.That's when I found the other marriage for Gladys Crompton.I was waiting until I'm absolutely certain of the facts before contacting her.Obviously if you feel that she can help,I can't stop you contacting her. I feel it could be quite upsetting as she knew her gran Gladys had been married before and,either didn't marry Gordon or commited bigamy

I meant you contacting her. I certainly wouldn't unless she wanted me to.  I now see that you're doing it for her.

She seems very fond of them both. If I were you I wouldn't mention anything to her unless you're absolutely certain.  You could ask her about the wedding photo though. That might help getting a date and in finding a marriage for them.


PS. Have you tried finding a marriage for them in BC?
