Who is this boy?
« on: Friday 27 February 15 23:28 GMT (UK) »
I was searching the 1901 Canadian Census for another home child, and I came across this boy, Ancestry and Automated genealogy seem to have his first and surname mis-transcribed.

Can someone please have a look to see what they think it may be?

http://www.automatedgenealogy.com/census/View.jsp?id=71235&highlight=35&desc=1901+Census+of+Canada+page+containing+Terry%3F+Zubengaten


This is how is transcribed in the index on Ancestry

Name: Froy Babingaton
Gender: Male
Marital Status: Single
Age:9
Birth Day & Month:19 Jul
Birth Year:1892
Birthplace: England
Relation to Head of House: Oreven boy (Boy)
Immigration Year:1900
Racial or Tribal Origin:English

Thanks Karen

Thanks Don,

I have seen the original census, and the enumerator had horrible hand writing, so between the indexes and original, I can't figure out what this boys name should be.

Hi:

I read it as Bubengaten, Henry

But that didn't get me anywhere since I couldn't find any immigration or Home Child records that were remotely close.

Quite a few of the names on that page were challenging  :P

I read it as Bubengaten...I wanted to make it Troy, but I think it's definitely

a 'F'...compare it to the 'F' in Farmer. I've never heard of Froy but that doesn't

mean alot ;D

Sorry I can't be of more help

Wowzers.  I have seen some bad handwriting but this one is super bad.  I can see why they would think the first letter of his first name is an F but I see it as Henry.  I see the first letter of his last name as a Z but it could be a B (doesn't look like other B's on the page).  I see it as Zubengaten but that second b could actually be a ch.

I thought maybe the last name might start with an R, close to the top of the page there is what looks like a Rossina.

Possible.  At first glance I thought it started with his first name and that it was Ruben.

How about Babington? And he's an orphan boy?

I had a look in the 1911 and no likely candidates. But I did find these guys in a household in Brandon:
Evaeten Babington    16
Wales Vobbs    39
Edrret Euhtadt    30

You thought the 1901 handwriting was bad??

Just had to share :P :P :P :P
