Renshaw Family
« on: Wednesday 19 June 13 11:56 BST (UK) »
Hello
I am trying to find any either a marriage or death for 2 brothers Bernard and Percy Renshaw.Born 1901 and 1906 respectively.Their mother Rosina [Broomhead]Renshaw died in Sherbroke 1918 and their father remarried.There are many records of the father and the younger brother Arnold but Percy and Bernard seem to have lost contact.
I think this is them on the 1940 Voters List living at 24 Concord Ave
Mrs G Renshaw
P Renshaw Salesman
D Renshaw Dressmaker
Helene Renshaw
Bernard Renshaw unemployed
If anyone can find any further information about them I would be very grateful

Do you know what Bernard's occupation was?  There are some voter's lists in Toronto that might be him if he's a sheet metal roller/presser.

There was another Bernard Renshaw, born abt the same time in England, who married in Ontario.  He was a jeweller.  The parents are wrong for him to be your Bernard though.

1935 Canada Voters' List
Electoral District of Spadina, Urban Polling Division No 95, City of Toronto
Comprising Clinton Street east side from College Street to Harbord Street
Address 231
Renshaw, Mrs Bernard (W), married woman
Renshaw, Bernard,  sheet metal roller
Renshaw, Percy, helper

From looking at the rest of the list, I think the (W) stands for woman and not widow. There are a few that are listed like this:  (W), widow.

In the 1935, one street over from the above listing, was another Bernard Renshaw:

1935 Canada Voters' List
Electoral District of Spadina, Urban Polling Division No 96, City of Toronto
Comprising Clinton Street west side from College Street to Harbord Street; Harbord Street south side from Clinton Street to Grace Street; Jersey Avenue both sides from Clinton Street to Harbord Street
Address 25 Jersey Ave

Renshaw, Mrs William (W), widow
Renshaw, Bernard, presser


I also found the marriage between Bernard Renshaw (jeweller) and Kathleen Ross Spray. Bernard's parents were William Renshaw and Alice Eccles.
I wonder if the above Voters' List is this Bernard and his mother.

Given their proximity to the your Bernard and similarity of names, I wonder if they were cousins.  Is there a connection? Do you know?


Edited to add marriage information

The voters' list that you found in 1940 is only 500m from the 1935 list. I would say it's the same family, but none of the occupations are in agreement.

Hello
Thank you for your interest.
The Bernard and Percy Renshaw were the sons of Bernard Renshaw [Jeweller] and Grandsons of William Renshaw and Alice Eccles.Their mother Rosina Broomhead died 1918 and their father remarried Kathleen Ross Spray.I have been in contact with the Spray family who know  nothing of the 2 brothers but have information on the other brother Arnold.
I think there may have been a family upset but I would love to know what happened to Bernard and Percy.
Thank you
Audrey
