A private tree which includes him on Ancestry.

Add - and only Gladys listed as spouse.

Finally found a hint from the directories:

1922 Toronto directory
Ayre, Austin C  moving picture opr, rms, 138 Monarch Pk Av

And, in the same directory, searching 138 Monarch Pk Ave for the owner.....Charles Compton......

Aghh!

Edit:  Charles Compton also lives at that address.

Gladys Compton's sister, Mary, married John Henry Seedhouse on 6 June 19291920*, St Johns, Toronto. (same church as Gladys's marriage to Austin- see my link in earlier post)   Gladys  was a witness.
Gladys address is given as 138 Monarch Park Avenue.

I've been looking through trees for any photos of Mary's marriage in case the pic was of her.

Put a 9 instead of a zero - new laptop  :-[ ::)

Well done bbart, picking him up in the Toronto Directories. And well done Gadget for linking that
address.

Browsing through the Welland Tribune index of names, I think Austin's was just a transcription
error. They seem to have a number of them back to front. Barbara Smith, not Smith, Barbara.

Hi Sandy

No one's doubting the Compton-Ayre marriage. I put this link up a few days back:

Full info on the Compton-Ayre marriage

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

It's the marriage of Gordon Rutledge to Gladys that we can't find.

I don't want to say anything to the grandaughter until I'm sure of my facts.
 Many thanks to all the folk who have been helping
