Thank you for all the information. Will try the Canadian archives. So looks like he was a home child.

Hi,

You're welcome. :) Yes, it is possible he was a home child. Just trying to find him on the 1911
Canadian census.

Hi,

A possible,

1911 Canadian census, Carleton, New Brunswick (it's very faded)
Jones, John, age 15, says he was born July 1896 England, immigration yr. 1907, he is a
domestic with George and Margaret Ritchie (farmers).
It's a split view, you can click on the top part and scroll up to see his listing.

Hi,

Florence Ganter....I wonder if that was mistranscribed/misheard. There is a marriage of
a Florence Tranter to Bertie Wagstaff in 1916 in Stourbridge. Not sure what the rules are
for the UK 1901 census, but Florence Tranter appears at the address mentioned (reply #8)
listed as granddaughter, age 9.

Hi,

From the British Home Children registry,
John T. Jones, arrived 28 May 1908 on the ship Carthaginian. He was placed with the Fairview
Children's Home in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and then placed with 4 families in New Brunswick,
and enlisted in 1914. Address in the UK,  Dudley St., Birmingham, guardian Joseph Merchant Jones.

There was also a John Jones (no T.) on the same ship, he is the one in the 1911 census with the Ritchie family that I gave you. I can't find John T. in 1911.

This is the passenger list for the Carthaginian

(click on the link by Digitized Service File to see all the pages)

Gives Joseph Jones at an address in Salford as his next of kin.

Thank you all for your help. I now know why Joseph/John was fighting in the Canadian Army.
