W.Robertson - Shipping Information + 1911 census
« on: Thursday 26 March 20 10:38 GMT (UK) »
Hi All,

Thank you in advance for taking a look at this thread.

In late 2011 I posted on RootsChat (https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=563642.0), asking for information regarding a former Sheffield United (English football/soccer), player called W. Robertson. Very little information is/was known about him, other than he came from Dundee, Scotland, and played for the club between 1889-1891. He was playing in Dundee before moving to Sheffield, who signed several Scottish players. But after playing for the club little information is known about him.

In 2012 I did contact someone who gave a little information regarding 1911 census; The Canadian census of 1911 has a W.M. Robertson, born June 1866 (age 45) living in Haileybury.  His wife's name is Agness, born January 1868 (age 43) and there is one son - Arthur - born January 1901 (age 10).

What I am looking for is the actual records of the 1911 census, as well as any shipping reports which record him cross over the Atlantic, from either Scotland or England to Ontario.

I am grateful for any information anyone can help me with please.

Thank you. That one might be difficult as I have no idea which ship, and when it sailed he would have been on
