Canada / Help with family COMPLETED THANKS
« on: Monday 21 November 11 14:33 GMT (UK)  »
    I have just discovered a great uncle of mine a William Tate Willson b 2 Mar 1883 in Hogsthorpe Lincolnshire England, and died 30 Aug 1968 in Vancouver British Columbia. His parents were John Henry Willson and Elizabeth Jane Short.
From the info that I have from the IGI it appears that he married a Clare Jenkins  but I cannot find a marriage in the UK

Can anyone help with any info about this family, Children, Occupation Marriage details in fact anything would be appreciated. I do not even know when he moved to Canada.

Many thanks  Steve

Can anyone date this photo? also what type of dress is this. Is it a Mourning gown? It looks very expensive, and do the crosses and beads signify anything.
In short what can you tell me about the lady and her dress her name is Eunice Sanderson owner of Ivy House, a previous post (Where is this house located?  this section)

Thanks Steve

This is a Property believed to have once been occupied by my Great Great Grandfather but I have no idea where it is or was.
It is quite a distinctive house, I am almost certain that it was in the Scunthorpe area of Lincolnshire possibly near Bromby but that is all the info that I have and also the only photo.
Any help as to the date or location would be appreciated.

Thanks   Steve
