THOMAS MANLEY
« on: Tuesday 24 January 23 00:37 GMT (UK) »
I am looking to see if I can find any additional information re:

MANLEY Thomas

In 1930 he arrives at the age of 17 from Manchester and the passenger lists records he will staying at the Uniting Church of Canada Hostel in Norval (?)  I am not sure about the cirmcumstances he would have immgrated and why he is going to the Hostel.  (I have the Passenger List)

He marries Helen Louise Fraser in 1937 (I have the Marriage Certificate)   he died in 1973

my  look up request would to see if I can find any additional information re where they may have lived, possible any Children...  Did Thomas become a Canadian Citzen?  When and Where did Helen die?  Did he become a Canadian Citizen?

For information the marriage took place in Toronto. Thomas was living at 300 Gerrard Street East, Toronto.

There are no bmd registers in Canada privacy laws are quite strict. If we can follow Thomas and Helen we might be able to find newspaper obituary which may show if they had children.

Wondered if a death notice for the father might help - Herbert Manley died July 1948 but no names mentioned.

Have you contacted ancestry members about Thomas Manley.  Some have 18 November 1973 and other about 1969 for the date of death (no sources)  Some may indicate there was a male son.

Perhaps contact the Pickering Public Library to see if they can locate an obit for Thomas Manley since he is the one where people are quoting 18 November 1973 as a date of death.

Pickering Public Library also have a facebook page.
