That 1880 birthyear ties in with his age on the marriage cert but no birth on freebmd to support him being born in England

On the 1911 British census 10 Chadwell St. is occupied by George Snowdon.

The same ship and the same month and year of immigration would lead me to believe that the border crossing record ties in with your Felix.

You have all given me some interesting leads Thank you.

i have now received the m cert sent by Carole and the father's name doesn't look like George, i rather think it looks like Geophrey or something similar, what do you think ? and rather oddly the father's profession is Lacemaker. I thought that was something just the women did.  poli

A witness to the marriage of Felix in 1905 was Lydia Snowden.  There is a marriage
26 Apr 1903 St. Mary Magdalene Pancras, Camden, Middlesex between George Stuart Snowden, bachelor and Lydia Adele Dezombre, widow.

The address given on the Canada/US border crossing was where George Snowden was living in 1911.  There is a death for Lydia A. Snowden Sep 1923 Barnet 3a 357 @ 58 which would give a birth year of 1865.  Perhaps Lydia is mother to Felix.

I found a family tree at the freepages that includes Ethel Gertrude Ostler. It has her husband listed as Philip Humber and indicates they were married in 1905. There is an Ethel Gertrude Humber who died in Victoria on 28 Apr 1943 at the age of 58. There is some incorrect information listed for Ethel in that tree so maybe that Philip was a second husband. There is a death for a Philip Humber in Victoria on 16 Mar 1941. He was 59.

Perhaps another look-up is required to see if that Ethel Humber is the correct person. No need to start a new thread - just go to your first post in this thread and click on "modify" and add "BC look-up" in the subject line.

If that Philip does turn out to be a second husband then it would appear they married before 1915 as Philip's attestation papers for WWI are dated that year and his next of kin is listed as Mrs. E.G. Humber. I can't find a marriage for them though. Here's a link:

I can look up the death registrations Jacquie found.

What are Ethel's parents' names?  Just so I can do a quick check to see if it is a match before printing it out.

Probably the site Jacquie is referring to.

There are 6 trees on Ancestry that include Ethel Gertrude Ostler with your parentage and 1884 Essex place of birth.  1 has her marrying Felix and dying April 1943 in Home, Indiana, Pennsylvania, US.  2 have her marrying Phillip Humber and dying in Mayfair Nursing Home, or Mayfair, Middlesex England.  The others have no husband and just the April 1943 date of death.
