England / Re: Seeking information on Bannister's from England to Canada
« on: Saturday 26 January 19 16:55 GMT (UK)  »
Sorry about that. I am not sure who is living aside from I know penny is dead. I don't know my dad's side of the family, we left when I was 2yrs old. I am pretty sure penny is just penny and she died when she was like 37 and had 2 maybe 3 son's. Nothing about her parents or grandparents is mentioned anywhere. I am not even sure if her grandmother's real name was Irene that's just what they refer to her as and I don't have her maiden name or her husband's first name. No one can tell me anything other than what I know already. I have found Bannister's married to Irene's but I don't know if they are the right people without more information. How can I find out more without any other info to know for sure I found the right people?

Sorry I do not, I believe Edward Dalby is my 11th great grandfather on my grandmother's side. All I have been able to find on Edward is that he may have been married and had 3 sons Robert, Matthew and George.

England / Seeking information on Bannister's from England to Canada

I don't know much about my father's side and my mother isn't very helpful.

This is what we know: My father is a living male B Bannister, he has a living brother Bannister, and a sister Penny Bannister who died in 1998.

My father's parents are possibly still living which may explain why I can't find information on them anywhere. We believe their names are D and G Bannister. D Bannister may have been born in Canada or England as my mother feels certain my father told her that his grandmother "Irene" came to Canada from England, not sure if she came with her husband and child or if she met her husband here.

My father's grandparent's we know are a deceased male Bannister, and a "Irene" Bannister (don't know maiden name). Irene may be her real name, middle name, nickname. Not sure, as my father only ever referred to her as his Grandma Irene and that she was from England. I am pretty sure his grandparents are deceased.

We also think that they may have lived or some still live in British Columbia, Canada. Myself, my father, his brother, and possibly his parents live in Ontario, Canada.

If anyone has any potentially related information or tips on how I can find out more information it would be very much appreciated. I literally can't find anything other than Penny's death notice and nothing about her siblings, parents or grandparents. In the mean time I am waiting on results from a ancestry dna test to see if it comes up with any potential living blood relatives on my dads side because I have been stuck in my search for a long time! I don't know what else to do!
