If you look at the rest of the household it includes middle names.  What if the boys name was something like Gaten Henry Ruben?

Hi folks,

This is not a good one  :'(

When was the 1901 Canadian census taken?

When was 1901 English census taken?

Is there a chance this "oreven boy" which may be "oraphan boy" in broken english as "Orphan boy"...........could have been on the English census prior to being in Canada  ???  ???

I am wondering Karen what else you know of this lad & do you know his origin...........what is your connection or are you not connected to him at all ?

I have looked at your 1901 Canadian census..............how sure are you of his name being foreign (in terms)?

I wasn't sure with the canadian census but was the lad born in England ?

Annie

P.S. I should have explained my query in more detail. If the lad was orphaned (fostered) to a "foreign" couple his name could sound foreign if you understand what I mean i.e. written down how it sounded even if his name was a very British name ?

Just a thought to help get answers :-)

South Uist, Inverness-shire, Scotland:- Bowie, Campbell, Cumming, Currie

Ireland:- Cullen, Flannigan (Derry), Donahoe/Donaghue (variants) (Cork), McCrate (Tipperary), Mellon, Tol(l)and (Donegal & Tyrone)

Thanks everyone!

The 1901 Canadian Census was taken March 31, 1901

I think that it is supposed to be "Orphan boy"

I know nothing of this boy, just happened to come across him while searching for another and didn't want to leave him just lost in the census.

It says he was born in England, July 19, 1892, but the dates could be wrong, as that is quite common for children who are sent here through the Child Migration Schemes. 

It also says that he came to Canada in 1900.

I was sent this message from a chatter who had found this via genforum.....

It seems to have been digitally transcribed hence the variation in name...............not a good system in my eyes  ::)

Here is a copy & I'm sure there will be plenty of thoughts which is what is needed ?  :P

I'm Scottish so in my head when looking at names such as this which are hard to decipher I think Scottish names come to my head 1st  ???

My initial thought for the name was....in a foreign accent  ;D
Buchan Gorten (Gordon) Harry or Henry ???

If only they realized how important their work would turn out to be to so many.  I thought all my attempts to decipher, bad handwriting, in French, with such bad spelling was bad.
