Ethel Hemson or Ethel Dezombre?
« on: Monday 05 April 10 17:08 BST (UK) »
Ethel Gertrude Ostler b 1884 in Forest Gate Essex died in 1943 in Saanich.

Ethel had several siblings who went to Canada.

Maria Cordelia b 1881 m Frederick Finch and d 1928 Ontario
Edith Ernestine  b1869 m Frederick Armes and d 1937 Ontario
Herbert Arthur  b 1875 m Caroline Baldwin and d 1956 Toronto
Leonard Cyril b 1883 m Jane Morry and d 1969 Victoria

This info was given to me a long time ago and i cannot remember from whence it came!!

According to Free BMD Ethel Gertrude married in 1905 to either--Frederick Hemson or Felix Dezombre

I cant find any combination of Ethel with either surname in the English 1911. Assmed then, that Ethel had gone to Canada between 1905 and 1911?

Have trawled a lot of the sites on offer here but to no avail.

Passenger lists throw up nothing solid even with misspellings that i have followed up.
Looked at obituary and crematory lists--no luck
Tried the BC Archives with Ethel and both of the men's surnames.

Has anyone ideas i could try for further searches please.

I haven't yet started chasing up her siblings lives in Canada yet because i just want to marry Ethel off to the right chap and then i can start chasing them all  :) poli

Might be worth looking at the 1909 entry Southampton to Buenos Aires for Felix Dezentze and Ethel Dezentze

See birth below - there is a female Dezentze b 1909 on same voyage but initials are LBH plus one with no initials

Many thanks for replying cosmac.
I shall follow this up.

I've just had some help from Carole re the marriage and now you have sent me this info. How do you all do it?

I blame my lack of 'finding things' on my computer--it's obviously plugged into another planet  ;D

Although the passenger list lists a birthplace of France there is a Canada US border crossing document for Felix Desombra b. 1880 London England, age, 31, labourer at Port Huron Michigan on 24 July 1911.  He indicates that he entered Canada 19 Sep 1910 on the Tunisian.  His father is George Desombra 10 Chadwell St. London.
Marriage was in London so it might tie in.

There are 2 other border crossings for Felix Dusombre born around the same year but in Canada and lists a father in Ontario and is also crossing with brothers and cousins(?).  These are 1914 and 1910 at Sault Ste Marie and although the name is similar I don't think they are yours.
