England to Canada 1912
« on: Friday 22 April 05 20:09 BST (UK) »
Can anyone tell me where I can look to find naturalization list pre 1915 for Canada?  My 4 x great uncle left England in 1912 and settled in Nova Scotia whre he lived until 1961 and died aged 84. I know he left with his wife but I have been unable to track down how he got there, if he had children etc?

any help or advice much appreciated :-)

Hi,
My relatives name was william Enoch Hiden (born 30th August 1876 in Staffs),  although it sometimes appears as Hayden. He and his wife Marion, (nee spencer, born 29 Sept 1887 in staffs) left England in 1912. They lived and died in Nova Scotia but after they England I know nothing of them.
Thanks, Michelle

Hi there,

until about the 1940's or later (not sure when) citizens of Great Britian were not required to become naturalized citizens. Canada was still considered to part of the Commonwealth.

William Enoch Hyden served for Canada in WW1 - here is a link to his sign up papers

There is also a James Hyden from Staffordshire serving in WW1

Does the following seem to connect to your Hiden family

Given Name: William
Surname: Hiden
Sex: M
Birth: Abt 1845
Christening: 19 Oct 1845 ,Lower Way,Stafford,England
PEDI: birth

Father: Henry HYDEN Hiden b: 12 May 1793 in ,,of Staffordshire,England

You may want to post on the Nova Scotia Rootsweb site and see if someone can help - an obit would list survivors possibly.

Good luck

Hello again

here is someone else who was looking for the Hyden's from England who moved to Nova Scotia - perhaps you have already connected with this person but just in case you haven't take a look -

Hello once again,

a little more digging and here are the funeral home records for William Enoch Hyden of Nova Scotia

Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia
P.O. Box 641
Station Central
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Canada B3J 2T3
Records of the Halifax Funeral Home


HYDEN WILLIAM ENOCH 03 FEB 1961 8 100

I would think if you wrote to the above organization they may copy the information and sent it to you.

Here is the website for this society

Thanks for all your hard work, that's brilliant, thanks so much.  Can you give me any advice as to where (if anywhere) I can look online for children of William and Marion?

It's kind of strange.... William enoch's mothers was a spencer by birth, born in staffs also. Was it common to marry distant or close relatives? Of course it may be just a coincidence.

thanks again, the info and documents are great!

Hi

I don't know of any online site where you could look for their children BUT if you check out the Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia website you can email them and ask for the funeral home records for William Enoch - these records will list next of kin and should have a copy of the obit as well.

Let me know if this works out - if it doesn't then there may be other ways to get a copy of the obit (if there was one)
