Canadian passenger lists shows a Dorothy Nidd - born 1896 - Liverpool to Quebec on the Minnedosa - to marry H J Parker.

Back to the drawing board looking for Harry James Parker son of Tom Benson Parker.  :-\

I, too, have been wondering about the apparent differences and whether Henry was a Home Child who ended up with the Taylor family. There are a Henry and a John Parker ages 7 and 5 as visitors in a household in Sussex (if I remember correctly) in the 1901 census. They were from the Barnardo Home. Unfortunately it doesn't give a birth place for the boys.

A Henry J and a John M ages 11 and 9 are on a ship to Canada in 1905 which differs a bit to 1904 but I would think this is probably the same John.

Reading through this John's service file, you will find his mother listed as a Mrs Ford. GRO index has what looks like births for these 2 boys as Ford, mmn Parker.....Henry James and John Michael, RD Christchurch, which is where Bournemouth can be found.

Something doesn't seem to add up, or something?

Added: your last posts have arrived while I was typing this one, *Sandra*, so I will post it. As you say, back to the drawing board.....doesn't look like this is the correct Harry and Dorothy.

Didn't see a birth record for a Harry James Parker (1894) son of Tom Benson Parker  ??? On the census 1901/1911 he was plain Harry Parker  ??? Birth on both those census was 1894  ???

Nor did I. I think we need the OP to come along and clarify things?

I don't subscribe to fold3 either.

This possible miltary record and birth make more sense given the originally posted info.

Would be interested to see what else that record said - discharge date was 26 September 1917 - so he should be married by that point. (Q1 - 1915 - Maidenhead - 2c 781)

We are not allowed to post from the 1939 Register but using the free index gives a Harry b. 1891 and Dorothy b. 1897. Possible daughter Lillian appears to have married an Allan. She can be found in the index. All are in Kent.

The OP would need to look up the image for birth details to clarify.

I think this might be the family.
