Huton Family
« on: Sunday 12 March 17 00:24 GMT (UK) »
My family members, Archibald Huton and his wife Jane ( nee Gibson) emigrated to Canada in the mid 1850's from Armagh in Ireland. The family seemed to settle in Hamilton, Ontario and had a family. I am trying to trace the family who may still be living in the area. I have details of some of the family in the 1891 census living in Hamilton City, Ontario:
Fanny Huton aged 26
Jennie Huton aged 24
Mattie Huton aged 19
Harry Huton aged 17
Rebecca Huton  aged 14 and
Olive Edna Huton aged 7.
Is it possible to go forward from here? 

Thank you in advance for any help given.

Should be possible to go forward through the various census years on the LAC site:

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/Pages/home.aspx

The following looks like Rebecca Huton age 24 listed as Sister-in-law to David White on the 1901 Census:

http://data2.collectionscanada.ca/1901/z/z002/jpg/z000068541.jpg

1901 Census:
David White, Head, 29, 10/Oct/1871
Martha White, Wife, 27, 28/Apr/1873
Marrion White, Daughter, 4, 27/Jun/1896
Laurine White, Daughter, 2, 28 Feb/1898
Rebecca Huton, Sister in Law, 24, 01/Sept/1876

Rebecca's sister Martha is shown as Mattie in the 1891 Census.

Thank you so much Sami! That was such a great help. I now have been able to go forward to the 1921 census with David White aged 50, Martha , his wife, 49 and their children Marion 24, Laurine 22 and Reginald 14.
Have done a bit of searching, looking for Reginald but no luck yet!
Thank you again Sami for putting me on the right track!

There is also some information from Manitoba Vital Statistics:

http://vitalstats.gov.mb.ca/Query.php

The David White family was in Manitoba for several years before the 1921 Census and David Reginald White was born in Brandon 26/01/1907.

You might also have some luck looking through the online Henderson's Directories:

http://peel.library.ualberta.ca/henderson.html

There are directories for Brandon covering some of the years between 1906 through 1955.
