Many thanks for your suggestions and help towards finding the pieces of a very complex puzzle.  Will pursue your links and probably get back to you soon.   Good to have another brain (s) in on the search.  Thanks again

Thanks for your reply.  Confirms what I've found out about the Heatons only I probably did it back to front!  I traced Charles as being in Quebec Canada living with Virginie Dessaulniers (1911 Canada Census) and married to Marie Louise Dessault (1910) (Virginie's husband's name)  I couldn't find him in 1901 or 1891 but trawled the passenger lists and as you say he went from Liverpool to Quebec in 1893 with a Father Seddon and a group of 50 children from the ' Catholic Rescue and Protection Society'  I was really hoping to find him with a guardian or parent. He married in 1910 and I think Hamilton was his son born in 1911 and who came to England in 1936 to study as a lawyer.   Still not sure how Annie Hawkins/ Heaton was involved in all this.  One relative suggested that Annie's sister was the mother of Hamilton but records of him born and his mother's name are not that easy to find.   Anyway, many thanks and I'll keep on searching. Next step will be the poor law unions around the time of his birth.   Regards

Hello I'm trying to find the parent(s) of a Charles Heaton born 1881 in England - maybe Staines Middlesex/London area.  He moved to Quebec Canada when he was 12.  Have found travel doc on Ancestry but can see no relative travelling with him.  Records say he was from 'St George in the East Parish'  Was that an institution/workhouse and under privileged children were sent to Canada maybe to have a better life?

I'm trying to find a Ralph Hawkins who was either born or lived in Birr.  Born about 1835-1845.  Moved back to England and married someone from Dorset.  No mention of him in any census after his daughter was born in 1863 in Middlesex England.

Many thanks for all your replies.  This has helped me quite a bit.   I think I could go further if I could access the  OxFS records for Launton.  Is there any way I can do this on-line? 

Oxfordshire Lookup Requests / Launton marriage records
« on: Saturday 12 January 13 18:59 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find the ancestors of the Butler family from Launton in Oxfordshire.  I have a John Butler (b1809) married to Ann ?  His father was George (b1782) perhaps married to Mary Bloxham. I can't find any marriage records for either of these couples.  Can anyone help, please?
