Annie Simmonds Leroy marriage
« on: Friday 09 February 18 21:46 GMT (UK) »
I am having trouble finding a marriage for Annie.
Annie Simmonds born 1874 Guildford. She married Charles Felix Leroy 1903 and they had son Leonard Stanley Felix in 1904. Charles died in 1919 and Annie came to Canada. When Leonard came to Canada in 1923 he said he was going to mother Annie Hampton of West Vancouver. Annie Hampton died 26 Oct 1953 and death reported by son Leonard. Death cert described her as divorced and husband had been William Hampton. Leonard died 1972 Vancouver.
I can not find a marriage in BC records nor in Western States index. If I remember correctly when Annie came to Canada her stated destination was Vancouver.

Thanks AMBLY
When I was at the library I neglected to make a note of everything. There is also a passenger manifest for her where it states that she is returning to husband WK Hampton so he is William K Hampton of Vancouver or West Vancouver. He is a mystery

Freebmd has no William K Hampton births but there is a William Hampton 1883 Guildford which is where Annie lived. He could be the friend on her immigration/arrival papers. If there was a marriage it was a quickie in order to show up for 1921 census
