Oh Wow bbart - that is amazing.  The level of research you have done has blown me away.  Thank you so, so much.  I just wish James was in my direct line. 

There are some very interesting stories in this family - mostly unearthed by Pennines - hence how she is so well-informed.  I know she will appreciate your input.

Thank you again

Thank you for ordering the certificate bbart.  This line of my family is so large - Harriet was one of 16 children.  As Harriet is not my direct line, I have to stop somewhere when it comes to certificates.

Thank you again

Thank you bbart.  Strangely, I was thinking about this as I was about to come on-line and wondering if she brought the body back to the UK. 

Thank you for your input and a different slant on the story.

Thank you Eileen, Sandra and Pennines for all your help with this.

I won't be getting the death cert for James C Venemore because a) James is the husband of Harriet who is not actually in my direct line and b) I think James C is a red herring although a big coincidence.

I appreciate everyone's help with this

I find no record for James' death in Hastings County in the registrations nor is there a reference in the Belleville Library's obituary index for the time period.

Thank you for looking Eileen

Where it says to be deported - maybe a red-herring -  is there a date 8  14  42 could be 14/8/1942 or just a reference number  ?

Sandra

This appears to be a reference number rather than a date.  The date would have been 1907.

Eileen - thank you.  I have the information about her children.

There is a Poor Law Union Record dated 1912 showing Harriet, aged 30, widow of James, a baker, along with son Percy, aged 3 in the Medway, Kent records, admitted from Gillingham parish.  Record available on Ancestry.

Thank you Eileen - I have that record but I can't find out anything about James.  Harriet re-married in 1913.

Can anyone help with this please?

Harriet Pike born 1882 in Gillingham married James Venemore on 23rd September 1906 at Gillingham.  I cannot find a birth record in England for James but the marriage record says his father, George was a Baker, as was James.

In 1907 Harriet and James travelled on the Tunisian to Montreal, Canada - their destination is Quebec.  There is a note next to their names 'To Be Deported'.  What would this mean?  Does it mean James was born in Canada or in the UK?

James was born c1880 and, presumably, died between 1909 (they had a son in 1909) and 1911.  There is a James Croxford Venemore with father George in Leighton Buzzard that fits with the birth and death dates but this appears to be a red herring.  James Croxford Venemore married Minnie Frost in 1902 and it appears that Minnie died in 1904 but Harriet's James is shown as a batchelor on the marriage record in 1906.

Harriet returned to the UK in 1910 with her two children but James was not with them and I have found no other record of him returning.  In the 1911 census Harriet is shown as a widow.

If anyone could help with James's birth and/or death records it would help a lot and I would be very grateful.
