HARRY JAMES & DOROTHY MAY PARKER NEE BEALE
« on: Thursday 15 November 18 21:58 GMT (UK) »
Dorothy May Beale born May 1897 Maidenhead Berkshire married March 1915 Harry James Parker born C1894 Father Tom Benson Parker.
They emigrated to Alberta Canada in 1920. they are indicated on the Canadian 1921 census which seems to indicate that HJP was previously there in 1904? so may have had relatives there.
There may have been 3 children from the marriage.
the marriage cert indicates that he was a soldier in the Yorkshire regt but have not found a record yet.
have yet to research ships records to confirm relevant children.

 to paraphrase, is there anyone related out there?

There was a death of a Dorothy Parker - Calgary Alberta - 22 December 1962 - Registration Number   010269 - which might be worth more investigation.

Your Harry was with his parents in 1911 Wakefield, so would it not be unlikely he was in Canada in 1904 ?

Hmmm................

The names agree - Henry/Harry and Dorothy but details differ from the original information - on the find a grave entry this Henry James Parker seems to be the adopted son of a Mrs William Taylor and it also says he was born in Southampton/Bournemouth  ??? On the attestation papers he is the son of Mrs H A Ford of Southampton.  ???
Whereas op is looking for Harry Parker born 1894 Wakefield Yorkshire -  with his parents and siblings in 1911

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWVL-MR3

Attestation papers give this Henry James Parker date of birth as 21 July 1894. Southampton. Eng.

http://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?op=pdf&app=CEF&id=B7588-S049

Canada Voters List 1957 - shows Henry James Parker (customs Fed Government) and Dorothy Parker - 316 7 th Ave North East Calgary. (This address agrees with the death notice in a reply above for Dorothy Parker.)


Canada Voters List 1940 shoes Henry J Parker - clerk and Mrs Henry Parker at the same address as above.

There is a border crossing from Canada to USA 31 August 1941 -  Harry James Parker - 21 Jan 1894 mentions wife Dorothy (Nidd  ???) Parker - holiday trip - think it says Harry arrived Halifax NS July 1904. (writing is so difficult to read)

Could this Harry have been a home child  ???
