Hello
Can anybody help to find the marraige details for the following people, please?

Elijah Arnold, B/-Chatham Kent England-emigrated to Canada-served in Canadian Army WW1-married . Possible abodes; Leeds. Kitley or Brockville Ontario_he was a Farmer.

Edward Merchant Arnold/Brown--- B/1887 Medway England-Emigrated to Canada----married Valerie/Valeria Pratt- Kitley or Leeds--Labourer, I think

Keziah Elizabeth Arnold-B/1901 Chatham Kent England_Emigrated to Canada_Brockville-Unsure of who she married.

Robert Welch/King(alias)-Adopted and sent to Canada-in the Canadian Army-B/ 1887 Medway Kent England_Wife Hannah-abode 55 Maskham, where that is I am unable to decipher-Foeoclto??

John Welch-adopted and sent to Canada-Ontario-B/ 1886 Holloway London

They are all siblings and half siblings. Parents are Robert Welsh, Elizabeth Merchant and Edward Arnold.
I will assume that the marraiges took place between 1910-1920 for the Welch`s and 1920-1930 for the Arnolds.
And if there are any death entries found for any of the afore mentioned you will make my xmas a special one.
From a hopeful member. Thankyou in advance
Jordan. Bartlett. Arnold. Beaney. Pickett. Brazil.  Huckstep. Eastwood. Potter. Dighton. French----Kent. Bucks. Essex. Sussex. London.  Kirby. Martin----Ireland.
Brewin. Gregory. Dixon. Merchant. Welsh. Leicestershire. Lincolnshire.

Hi
vbain; thankyou for the websites, I only had 2 of those.  Still fairly inexperienced at working my way around the `compo` and sites, but getting there.

Sandra_Brilliant, your a star. That is the right Elijah.  On checking the census info in Medway Kent I can see that Elizabeth, his Mother is with a Frederick Oliver.  I shall see what I can dig up on Hazel.

Thankyou. Elizabeth Merchant had children with her first marraige to a Robert Welsh, he died, and some of her children were put into Dr Barnados. And then Adopted or emigrated to Canada.
She is then found to be living with a Thomas Brown and has a daughter Faith with him, before re-marrying Edward Arnold in Chatham Kent England-and as stated before, some of those children went to Canada.
Tracking these Canadian_` children` down is hard work, so I am chuffed that you found the marraige.
So, Tillonsburg, would that be in upper or lower Canada?

I am just going off to do some more digging, be back later, Thanks

Hello Sandra

Excellent. I have just been on Ancestry and put in the marraige info for Elijah and Hazel, and although not a worldwide member there, I was able to glean titbits of data. If not a WW member then one cannot view the records.
What I found coincides with your last post on Tillsonburg. Thankyou.
Hazels Father Lewis was born Oct 1870 Ontario-he married twice.   Firstly to a Alberta Gertrude PriceB/1871 Ontario_D/ 24 Jul 1907 Oxford, Oxford County Canada. Married 1907
Then he wed Annie E Haycock B/May 1880-D/1946 Tills/

I have Lewis`s parents and Grandparents, and all of thier children down the lines_thankyou.  Origins New York.
But,  all of them are located in the census`, although I can only view the area that they are in,( but even so I have learnt a lot in a very short time on this site)  in the areas of Elgin East; Norfolk: Oxford County; Bayham Township in Elgin_al of which is very useful and goes a fair way enabling me to picture where Elijah lived. As a Farmer I wonder would he have had his own land-or leased it-or was he really an Agricultural worker?
He surely must have had contact with his siblings, I am musing.
I am off to do some more digging.

Kezia Arnold, 9, part of a group of Barnardo's children arrived on the Tunisian landing at Montreal bound for Toronto 5 Aug 1910.

Marriage for Elizabeth Arnold, resident of Brockville, 20, b. Scotland (mistake written beside this) underneath written Chatham, England, d/o Edward Arnold and mother not filled in.  Married 2 Dec 1920 at Toronto, Ont. to Charles Edward Randle, 29, teamster, b. Meaford, Ont. s/o Thomas Randle and Mary Morris.  Witnesses were Vida Lamb and Ellen Davis of Toronto.

There is a family ancestry tree which show Kezia Elizabeth marrying Charles Edward Randles with no marriage date and different parents for Charles (Edward Henry Randles and Ada M. Freeman).  There is a marriage for Charles Edward Randles with Ada Freeman as mother on 20 Sep 1926 at Ford, Ont. to Marie Jenette Mannie.  This Charles was born in Manitoba and both he and his spouse are RC.  The owner of the tree might have mixed up records??

If you use the OCFA you will find that Kezia Elizabeth Randle (Arnold) is buried along with Edward Randle in Glen Elbe Cemetery Leeds County Yonge Rear Township.  In the same cemetery is Muriel Irene Randle and Thomas Edward Randle (perhaps the father of Charles?).
