Hi

Your Grandfather also visited Canada. Both documents appear on Ancestry.

In the Canada(Ocean Arrivals) dataset he appears as 17 years old from Bognor. Arriving in Canada to learn the trade of farming, passage was paid by his employer. His next of kin on that document was his father a 'Mr Frank Scott' of 28 Moreton Place, Westminster SW ( This address does exist but I can't find a Frank Scott living there) - although there is a Frank Herbert Pattinson in 1925 , may be worth checking this guy out

Arriving back in England 1925 (7 March) onboard the Montcalm his returning address is given as Laurel Cottage, Ivy Lane Bognor - where Annie Stamp was living.

The documents were dated 1936 and 1937 and one included his signature. You could perhaps use it against his marriage certificate or military records to see if it's the same man.

He was obviously caught and sent back to duty but deserted again (Woolwich) on 3 February 1864, published in the Police Gazette on the 14 Feb 1864

Those records are held exclusively by Fold.com, and don't appear in the Police Gazettes that are online unfortunately.

Hi Matt

Iíve looked at this and canít find a baptism of a Francis Page (yet) - I also canít find an Edmond/Edward Page marriage to fit the bill either, unless he married further afield and Iíve found a couple in London which Iím looking into - it was only a 40 mile horse ride away  ;D

Best wishes

Hi

Witnesses:

William Gillham 1698 -- Richard Page, Richard Boots (possibly Roots)  and John Osben (Osbourne perhaps)

John Gilham 1675 -- Thomas Awcocke & John Fleete  - maybe put a snip of Thomas Awcocke on the deciphering board, it's a bit tricky.

Mary Gilham 1685 --  Willliam Rootes, John Fleete and Ann Packham (marriage of a lady by this name in Fletching 1690)

Alice Gilham 1681 -- John , Jane and Benjamin Fleete

William Homewood 1734 -- Thomas Coomber , Plesent Sharp and Thomas Hall - the latter two married each other in Poling 1735

William Homewood 1751 -- William Foord, Elizabeth Foord and Thomas Roff

Well - I think that's what they all are, but I'm open to correction  ;)

Claire

PS - wonder who the Fleet family were - they appear as witnesses in several of the Wills
