Walter Taylor/Rose Caroline Parry
« on: Thursday 08 February 18 11:31 GMT (UK) »
I am searching for any information of my grandfather Walter Calvin Taylor his second name could be Edwin possibly miss-read from the original document as Edwin has been used within the family his occupation in 1917 was a master stonemason. Records indicate that Walter had two children with Rose Caroline Parry the first being Phyllis May Rose Taylor born June 1915 in Regina Canada and the second being Edwin Jack Anderson Taylor born February 1917 in Lee, Lewisham in the county of London, England. I have traced Rose and Phyllis's family trees which show Walter as being related and his approximate birth date as 1892. I can find no other records for Walter, if anybody can provide me with information about Walter I would be very grateful so that i can continue research into my paternal family history.

Thank you very much for responding so quickly.

Walter's name and occupation have been taken from his son Edwin's birth certificate.

I have not been able to find a birth, marriage or death record for Walter in either England or Canada.

Rose and Phyllis sailed back to Canada (destination Regina, Sask) in October 1918.  Baby Edwin not with them.

Rose seems to have remarried to Dwight Robinson in Canada by the time of the 1921 census?

Thanks for responding, just getting to grips with the messaging system I guess you can both see my response so this is to the second message.

Thanks for information I had not looked for yet. I have been concentrating on events that happened after her son Edwin was born and before Rose went back to Canada to marry Dwight Edwin Robinson in Saskatchewan in December 1918 and leaving Edwin in England.

I don't know if Walter was English or Canadian, not found him on passenger lists entering or leaving either country.

Having such a common surname searching through 20 thousand hits for one name is a bit of a task.

It does seem very strange that Rose came over to England without her husband, very pregnant, had her baby and then returned to Canada, again without her husband, but leaving the child behind.

One does wonder if Walter was not actually the boy's father?  Or had he already died before she came over to England and so she wanted to come to rellies over here to have the baby?

Earlier on you quoted Lee Terrace Blackheath, its not an address I have come across but only a few streets away from 246 High Road Lee where Edwin was born, Rose's parents address confirmed by directories in Lewisham Library. I have been wondering if Walter was a fictitious person but there is the daughter Phyllis who is recorded mainly in Canada so I will  concentrate on Walter in Canada.
