Blimey I think this may be her. She has two brothers Arthur and Samuel - they were my dad's middle names. I'll follow this line. Thank you all so very very much. ;D

Fingers crossed ;D ;D

It's a bit sad though - looks like the brother in 1901 are inmates in Coventry immigration home

and it looks like this is a possible for father William (died in 1898 age 42)
Sep 1898  Coventry    6d   354   

If it is the right Ada/Alma then

William T (Thomas in 1861) is easy to trace back in all the census

and here's a good marriage Dec 1880
MAYCOCK    William Thomas    & Eliza Thompson
Warwick    6d   833    


BUT how to prove if Ada and Alma are the same person?  It all comes down to that elusive marriage certificate. ::)

Don't suppose that scottish certificate had the name Ada or Elizabeth on it did it?

And the 1901 census would be very helpful too.

Good Luck

It has to be. I've found Samuel and Arthur. Went to Halifax Canada in 1901. Haven't got any further though. Yes it's really sad - it's left me feeling very emotional.  The home was for children of "vicious and pauperising surroundings" - how awful is that!

My dad always said he had relatives in Canada. We all thought it was just a story.

As I keep hearing from lots of people searching for their ancestors - it's such a shame I started to do all this after my parents had died. I so wish I'd asked more questions.

I still haven't found Alma after 1891 - I wonder if she ran away? Or changed her name for another reason. Perhaps I'll never know.

Thank you for the extra info.

Yes very sad.

If their parents died then she possibly went into service. I havn't found anything likely in 1901.   She could possibly have married young and therefore not be called Maycock when she marries William.

I wonder why she married in Scotland?

I expect she will turn up when she is ready..

All the best

Barbara,
Canadian census are online and free- can't give you the url off the top of my head but goggle would produce it for you.
 Again from memory- risky but here goes- you could get maybe 1907 data depending where the 2 chaps were and also I think 1911 info.

I could well be corrected by someone who has been using Canadian resources more recently than I.

Know it's not exact name...but just is case...might want to send for this one as only two on page, and there are usually four on page, no?...If Barbara said the husband should be William Reeves they'd credit her for the money down, right?
Marriage June Q.  1905  Maycock Ada Annie Warwick  v.6d   p.1091

There is a query on the immigrants to Canada board, so will post the url in a bit...

I think Ada Annie is probably a different person - there is a birth for an Ada Annie in Warwick in 1906.

And an Ada A Maycock in all the census...
