James Henry Rendle
« on: Friday 18 December 15 07:01 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to find James Henry Rendle in 1891. I can't find a census entry for any of the family. I'm hoping it might shed some light onto unanswered question about his later life.
He was born in 1868 in Plymouth to James Edwin Rendle and Emma Jane Searle. In 1871 and 1881 he was living in Plymouth with his parents - James Edwin was a blacksmith.
In 1892 James Henry married Laura Louisa Kerswell in Plymouth.
In 1901 he was a plasterer in Willesden, London.
In 1911 he returned to Plymouth with Laura and lived was living with her parents.
In 1912 he appears to have done a runner and gone to Canada, where he set up home with Alice Mary Castell Bellamy, and with whom he had two daughters. In 1921 James Henry is a janitor in Edmonton, Canada and describes himself as married and Alice is calling herself Rendle.
In 1936 Alice (Rendle) returned to UK with her 3 children. No sign of James. Where did he die?
Supplementary questions:
Did James Henry marry Alice in Canada? I can't find a record of it. Had his first wife died or was the 'marriage' bigamous? What happened to Laura Louisa (nee Kerswell)?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Laura Louisa Kerswell b 1874 sep qtr in Liskeard
Laura Louisa Kerswell marries Mar qtr 1892 in Plymouth to James Henty Rendle - she was only 17
Laura Rendle dies 1917 in Plymouth aged 43 ....looks like your Laura ?? - if it is her  did he  marry bigamously in Canada ...or - did he marry after 1917 after Laura died
did Laura have any children ??  17 seems a little young to marry - just thought she might have been pregnant ?

Hi

For the 1891 census I think the family have been transcribed as Ruddle. James is still in the family home, a 23 year old plasterer.

William
Dent (Haltwhistle and Sacriston), Bell and Jetson (Haltwhistle), Postle, Ward, Longstaff, Purvis, Manners, Parnaby and Hardy (Co. Durham), Kennedy and McRobert (Banffshire), Reid(Bathgate), Watson (Wemyss), Graham (Libberton), Sandilands (Carmichael), Munro (Dingwall)

I see that Alice Mary C Bellamy was born in  Headington ,St Giles, Oxfordshire and in 1881 her father Montague had a servant ....
