I don't know if anyone can help but I would like to know about a Kate Humphrey.  According to the 1891 census, she was born in Toronto, Canada in 1883.  Her older brother, William, was born 1881 in York and her next young sister was also born York in 1885 so a small window in which the family travelled to Canada and back.  Kate's mother's name was Margaret Humphrey (nee Chadwick) born 1860 London and her father was Tom Humphrey born 1861 York.

A basic search of A******y comes up with a couple of Kate Humphreys but as I don't have a subscription with them, should be grateful if someone could check to see if either of them is the one I am looking for.

With many thanks.

Hello Sandra

Her real name being Margaret Kate rather hinders things so many thanks for finding her for me and for the information that she was with her mother and father, and their address.

Sorry to trouble you further, but do you know if there is any way of finding out whether son William Scott Humphrey born 1881 was with them in Canada?  Am I right in thinking that passenger lists before 1890 from Canada are not searchable by name?

With grateful thanks.

Kind regards.

Sailing for the Peruvian from Liverpool to Quebec arriving 03 Oct 1881 had passengers
Ann Humphrey 21 wife and Wm S. Humphrey 1 with a destination of Toronto.
The birth registration of Margaret Kate shows a middle name of Anne for Margaret.

Hello Barry

I have only recently started researching the Humphreys.  Tom Humphrey's father was George Humphrey and following George through the censuses, there is no Thomas Stephen.  Maybe, after further research, he may turn out to be a cousin but thank you for your interest.

Kind regards.

Hello Debbie

Thank you so much for that information and the link.  Looks like Margaret Ann was going to Canada to join her husband.  It must have been an horrendous journey for her on her own with a little baby as William would only be a few months old.

Many thanks again for your help.

Kind regards.
