RK thanks so much. I am related to Mr Charles Whitmore who was my great grandmother's brother. I have contacted a family member on the Obituary as I have some photo's to share of Gladys and her parents.

Just found this,

TOYE, James Jim Toye died peacefully in his sleep, in his 90th year, at St. Peterís Hospital on Maplewood Avenue in Hamilton on Friday, May 4, 2012. Jim was predeceased by his wife, Gladys. Born in Winnipeg, He served overseas in WWII, where he met Gladys. They were wed in the ruins of a London church and Jim was there to meet her when she arrived in Canada as a war bride. Jim was very active as a baseball and hockey coach, and he never lost hope for the Maple Leafs. After retirement from the Becker Milk company, Jim settled in Peterborough, cheered for the Petes and enjoyed the company of his children, grandchildren and many friends on the shores of Lake Chemong.   Together, Jim and Glad made a home where everyone was welcome. Jimís final years were lived at St. Peterís Hospital, where he was made comfortable and joyful by the wonderful care team on 3 West.

Are there any death records available online in York, Scarborough Ontario after 1963. I am trying to find death records for James L Toye ( no further info) and Gladys I Toye nee Whitmore born 1924 in Shoreditch England. They married in 1945 in London and moved to Canada in 1948. I have a feeling that James came from Canada and Gladys was a war bride. Also looking for birth records to see if they had any children.

I have just registered on the Groni website and you can now purchase credits to look up BMD. I cannot see on there how many credits you need to view a birth marriage or death. Has anybody used this and is it the same system as Scotland's people.


Found Margaret in the 1841 census in Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland

James Edgar 40
Margaret 40
Isan 12 ( could that be Ann?)
Janet 9
Margaret 6
Jane 3


The Reuben that married in 1883 is the one on the 1871 & 1881 census that says he's born in the West Indies. On one census it says he is Scottish and on the other Irish.

If you read back to what Cosmac posted   

 "d. St. Mary's Shippegan (Glouc Co)- 6th inst Reuben Smith of Redbank Southesk (North Co), age 35
from the Oct 20 1883 Chatham Northumberland newspaper "The World" 
A death so soon after marriage might be the reason you can't find him."

 that would make him born 1848.
