It works out that richard went to Canada in 1923 and returned in 1924.
He also returned from Canada in 1930 with wife and children but I can't find out what year (in between 1924 and 1930) that he went to Canada for the second time.
I wondered if he travelled out the second time with a wife or married in Canada?

That birth registration that Choccy found, suggests that mother's maiden name was JONES

I can't seem to find what GB found..where do I look Sylvia?

SylviaInCanada

SylviaInCanada Report 25 Sep 2012 22:44

BUT ......... GB found Richard, Ida, Ida and William returning tot he UK in 1933


so that shows that Ida did not die in Canada.

Holt

Richard...father

even if Ida and Richard did not marry ....... they could have said they were .............. and she could then have travelled under his name.



I know of someone who travelled to Australia around 1960, under the £10 scheme.

She said she was married to the father of the youngest 2 children, AND that the eldest had been officially adopted (nope!).

They did marry at some point after arrival.

It was discovered over 40 years later ..... and all people involved could have been expelled from the country. Fortunately, some bureaucrat was nice.




But they obviously did not have to present a marriage certificate as proof.


If this did not happen then, it was much less likely to have to be shown in the 1930s.

Does Ida have a different surname?

Holt

Holt Report 25 Sep 2012 21:19

I am i little confused now so should give you all details.
Apparentely my father was born in Canada (William James McCormick dob..1930 and his sister Elizabeth dob...1928) but their father Richard Norman and mother were never married (we were told?).
She is supposed to have died and he returned to England with the children. My father always claimed he returned when he was & 7 yrs old.
It's quite difficult as we don't know their mothers name and dad
has alzeimers now.
