JENKINS, George
« on: Friday 28 June 13 14:17 BST (UK) »
George Jenkins came to Canada on the Minnedosa on the 27 March 1926.   Shipping records indicate hat he was born Plymouth and was age 17 (in 1926).  He was brought to Canada under BICA to do farm work at Kinburn Ontario.  Through his association with my family indicates that he was born in Cornwall and in 1909.  A possible birth in Cornwall Bodmin in 1909 in FREEBMD.  As a youth he was connected to a maritime training vessel, but unsure if that was with the RN or merchant ships.  His tomb stone indicates a birth of 1909 (died in 2002).  The names of his parents are unknown but it is believed his sister (name unknown) lived in Northern Ireland.    There is one relative, also George Jenkins, in Canada, probably in Ontario.   Any help or info greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Do you have access to Ancestry or another 1911 census provider - I cant detail on here due to restrictions on T's & C's but he is there (with parents & 3 siblings) in the same Regn District as his GRO registered Birth Index entry.

Witnesses, Ann Payne, Edmund Lean

1881 Census they are under BEELRINGER
Jonathan born c 1832 Boconnoc, Cornwall
Daug EDNA age 9mths, born Cardynham (something is scratched out pertaining to her)

Jonathan died 1887 age 55 (FreeBMD)

I think Christiana ends up with a John COX in Dawlish, Devon 1901/1911 born c 1843 East Looe and 1842 Loo.
Cant find a Marriage though

Goodnight :)

Note also that by searching at FreeBMD
http://freebmd.rootsweb.com/cgi/search.pl

for births with surname Jenkins and mother Bellringer, there is one more birth, in Bodmin in 1913:
Elizabeth G Jenkins. There's a marriage for that name in 1952 in Bodmin reg dist, but nothing earlier that seems likely.

Andrew John Arthur Jenkins' birth in 1912 has been transcribed as Andrew J A Jenkins with mother Bollringer.

DK, can you specify what info it is that you're looking for?
It sounds as if the ancestral information given here in the thread is what you were after, but it wasn't clear in your first post.

The 1911 census is free to view (transcription) at familysearch.org
Select Type - Census, and for Residence enter Cardinham Cornwall, 1911 to 1911, and make it "exact".
The surname has been mistranscribed: search for surname Genkins and that will give you the complete list of household members as of that year. This is George, for instance:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X7LG-FY4
... his age having been mistranscribed as 9, yeesh.
