There is a Canada Census for 1911, on which the boys Arthur & Samuel might be found , but they just missed the one in 1901 as it began the end of March and they arrived the beginning of June...( although some of the older ones took months to enumerate, I think the more recent ones had deadlines...)
There is a 1906 but for the Prairie Provinces only...
:D J.J.

Anyone see a little stray George Maycock as well on on the U.K. 1901?
The home child Arthur (  :'( died ww1) said he had a brother George serving in India
am looking at this one born 1897 just before the death of William Thomas...
Birth June Q. 1897  George Albert E Maycock  Warwick  v. 6d  p. 641

Sorry JJ but he's with mum and dad  ::) Charles and Lucy and brother Arthur age 6.

RG13/2934 folio 51 page 5 in Whitnash Warks.

So he's not a stray  ;D

No need to be sorry...I don't have access to the U.K. census...I'll just cross him out...but now that we have found that these boys were the ones from Coventry...the extra brother is a new mystery...
The mother might also have remarried quickly enough to have had a half brother before the census...and why did he not name Samuel as his brother...did he die young, or leave the country...Perhaps he was fully
adopted and had a name change...which might also explain the Charles...

If this turns out to be Barbara's family, then ordering the full papers from the ww1  files would be a good idea...there is usually more information in there...
Plus a letter to middlemore homes to see if they have more information on them...
 
Is anyone able to look at the ancestry middlemore file on the boys. It contains the information of his death in WW1 so seems they were keeping track to that date, unless it is another researcher's info....but either way needs a looksee....

How did you come across this thread? i just finished putting a link to another thread regarding this BHC topic...
Sam apparently died in 1903, so that is why we couldn't find him on the 1911 census...
I'll link to this thread as well...
I usually also try to link to all threads with the BHC resource thread, but it's too hard to try and search all of them out...( I give up, in other words)
  :) J.J.

I found this thread though a link that you posted in reply #5 of the other thread. I didn't realize how old either thread was at the time that I posted here. I've got to start looking at the dates on posts. :P

Easiest plcae to start is automatedgenealogy.com.
Can see 1852, then, 1901, 1905 (prairie Provinces only Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba - then, 1911 and if you have Ancestry, you can get 1916.
Canada does not reveal information until "100 years", but in fact, it is more like 90 yrs., thanks to Ancestry
