George Lewis Hoskin born 1870
« on: Thursday 18 July 19 05:49 BST (UK) »
I am looking for any information on my great grandfather.  He lived in Canterbury and was married to Julia Hole.  Thank you if anyone can help with his parents or where they were from.

Do you have George on any census?
When, and where, did he marry Julia?

I found a George Lewis Hoskin marrying a Julia Hole in 1903 on a New Zealand index. Could that be him?

You need to specify the country, as there are a LOT of Canterbury's on this planet!  :)

Thanks so much for the great information.  Is there any link to the service record in South Africa?  We didn't know William was the father and was trying to trace a bit further back so this was very kind of you thank you all.
