Hi Ann,

Unfortunately, Canada didn't maintain passenger departure lists.

What were the names of his parents, and his step-father? When was brother Edward's death?

Cheers,
DB (land of the round door knobs  ;D)

Hi dbree,
 Thank you, Johns mother was Charlotte Riddett she married in1860 Carisbrooke Isle of Wight to James Taylor a pvt in the 45 of Reg Parkhurst Barracks  26 February 1860.

 The moved to Sheffield where Samuel, John & Edward were born t.
 James their father died there 23 Feb 1870 age 47, Charlotte returned to IOW.

 She married Robert Collinson 28 .12,1871, that didn't last long [a complicated story]

Charlotte remarries again calling herself Annie to Edward Leal a mariner 1879.

I have countless newspaper cuttings on the family, "the attendance officer, showed that of 130 attendances the John had made only 11.on 7 Aug 1878"  :o .It looks like he  did OK in the Army.

I haven't yet found Edward death, until I found his Army records I thought he may have gone abroad.

I am still looking for marriage for John, I found this? when his sister married she said father given name was John James, her mother -in- law who was also her great aunt was a CHIVERTON may be there was a mix up John & his siblings were very young when their father died.

Phillip GUNN was a witness & John Taylor was at the same address.
I found Phillip GUNN in Toronto directory of 1921 at 233 Niagara St. I also found a transcript of 1911 census on Family search, I haven't as yet found John.

see signature of John marriage & army record

Hi Ann,

Well done :) with the signatures, they do look very similar.

I did see the marriage with mother's name of Chiverton, and father John, but dismissed it.

Hi,

Homestead Grant Registers, Saskatchewan
John Taylor,
Application Date: 18 Nov. 1916
Grant Date: 20 Mar. 1923
NW/Section 31, Township 27, Range 10, Meridian W3 (which matches his location on the 1921 census)

Some information about Homestead Grants, .....not for the faint of heart
http://saskarchives.com/collections/land-records/history-and-background-administration-land-saskatchewan/homesteading

Saskatchewan suffered a devastating drought from the late 1920's to late 1930's, perhaps this
is why John asked for assistance in 1939.

An interesting site on how they lived in rural Saskatchewan.

Cheers,
