ChrisofWessex Report 30 Jan 2011 13:25

Lorraine, can you help please? Have lost a William Warren b 1910 Portsmouth, England. He was migrated in 1925 as a Home Child to Quebec. He went back to England in 1930 for a visit returning to Quebec in 1930 and is then believed to head to Hamilton, Ontario. Think he may have gone to USA - had 2 uncles in Pittsburgh. Have been told by a researcher they thought they had seen him crossing to Detroit. No dates given.

Thank you

Lorraine

All the other details are def. Wm. This one of crossing is wrong age but perhaps typographical error on records, the name, birthplace and Ontario all sounds OK. Thank you will work on this and fingers cross there is not a Wm Henry b 1920!!!

Thank you for your time and trouble.

Just checked only Wm Warren born Portsmouth in 1919/1920 is a Wm J. So looks like ours crossing border.

Hi, Lorraine.
I would really appreciate a look up for Canada when you have a moment.

I have found a James A. Edwards, born 27.8.1913 in Oswestry (this matches the birth certificate I have) who left for Canada in 1942. It states that he is married and he looks to be travelling alone. His address is in Wrexham.

I am waiting on a english death certificate for James (same name and DOB) to see if it is a match.

What I would like to know is if he travelled back and forth to Canada around that time, 1942 onwards, with his family.

I look forward to your possible findings.

Thank you
Lynne

Edit - sorry, Lorraine. I have just looked at the date range you have available and it looks like my query doesn't fit into those. I apologise for not reading it properly. Regards

1901 was the last census Elizabeth Eleanor Field was shown on.
She was enumerated as Ellen Field parlourmaid,in the household of Thomas and E leanor Powell,Brynteg, Blaenhonddan, Neath.
Elizabeth's baby was born in Pontypool, Monmouthshire and registered as Edward Richard Raynor and left with her married sister to be brought up. She left 2 months after the birth, and disappeared.

I cant find anything for an elizabeth field on a passenger list for her year of birth have you seached for a marriage for her.

have also tried ellen and elizabeth/ellen raynor but no sign of her on the passenger lists

the child was registered under raynor you say does it have a fathers name on the cert I thought if mother was unmarried the father had to be present to register in his name

Hi Lorraine

Floria Spratt b1881ish Chicago.

Father Arthur James Sprat(1862). Mother Alice Finch(1861).

England 1891 Census shows Floria as being born in Chicago although father only an Ag labourer and siblings all born in Kent. Her parents didn't marry until 1888 in Kent.

Can find no record of the family in 1881 census and no birth either. There is a family rumour that something happened in America but thats all.

So perhaps the 1891 Census is correct. I would be most obliged if you could find anything on birth, census or whatever on Floria

Thank you

Gerry :-))
