Two Birthplaces in Quebec
« on: Thursday 16 September 21 21:47 BST (UK) »
This is from an Ontario death certificate and it lists the parents birthplaces, both in Quebec, but I can't find any current location that even closely resembles them (or any birth certificates for them)  FWIW he was born in 1908 and she in 1910 (from gravestones)

The family is Presbyterian, he at least was Scottish.  I wonder if perhaps they lived in an English speaking settlement that has since been renamed.  I do not know what part of Quebec they were from , the family was living in Windsor Ontario by 1935 - do not know where they were married.  I haven't found a marriage certificate either.   

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks so much.

dublin1850, Farellton looks good. Can't find anything that looks like Manmure though!

Thanks so much, Farrellton was correct and I was able to find him in the Census under Wakefield.  I think I can find her place of birth if I can find their marriage certificate.  I know they were married by 1935 so that should be online if I can ever figure out how to navigate the Quebec Banc Numerique website ;)

If they married in Quebec the marriage should be available in the Drouin Collection on ancestry if you have access to that.

I found a person, right age, right name, from Maisonneuve.  I wonder if perhaps in f accent could have been interpreted this way.

Found her on the 1911 Census.  They were living in Suffolk, which contains the hamlet of Namur, the mystery has been solved.  Thanks
