Yes, Louisa's maiden name Langley. George is on the Canadian 1891 census Debra posted reply#8. Have looked for a marriage, but from past experience know Canadian marriages can be hard to locate. :)

Thanks Maddy, I had forgotten that bit  ::)

I see that the 1891 census was taken on the 14th April 1891 and Ethel, according to the 1911, was born on 9th May 1891.  George is down as a lodger and no indication that he is married, there is just a line in that column.

I wonder if we can find Louise in the 1891?

When I wonder did George and Louisa marry?

There is an 1891 census record for a Louisa Langley living in the Hamilton district of Ontario with her parents John and Louisa and eight siblings.  Birthplace is England.

Is this George's Louisa?

When Ethel Mae WOOD marries on 31 Dec 1913 Wentworth, Ontario, she says her parents are George WOOD and Louisa LANGLEY. However, there is a birth registration for Ethel May WOOD born 13 April 1891, registered 4 May 1891 with parents George WOOD (plasterers labourer) and Hannah ROWATT (of 830 Manning Avenue, Toronto). Is this the same Ethel?  :-\

Oh, no I'm wrong again. There is another Ethel May WOOD - found her marriage 10 May 1910 to Harry HARRIS, with parents George WOOD and Hannah ROWATT.  :-[

I've double checked the image for that 1911 census and it does say May 1892 for Ethel. 

Now the transcript shows that George was born in Ontario, Canada.  Place of residence Hamilton, Ontario.  If you look at the image below this shows as O whereas Louisa's birthplace is given as England. Is this the right George  ???

I think it is.  I have a 1901 cencus that has George and Louisa with 3 children (Ethel- who is my mil's grandmother), Lilly, Beatrice.  On that same page there is John and Louisa Langley listed with 5 kids.   So i think this must be Louisa's family living close by.

I have her death certificate listing her birth as 9 June 1871.  Death is 31 July 1941. It has her parents listed as John Langley and Louise Drewitt. 

I was hoping I could locate more about George through her.  Still can't find a marriage certificate.
