Canada censuses Annie & George Eaton

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


wisechild Report 23 Nov 2012 12:54

Please can someone track these two on any of the Canadian censuses.
Last sighting of them was from the army records of Annie´s brother Tom Sewell, who was with the Canadian forces & named them as his next of kin in 1917.
At that time they were living at 86 Howard Street Toronto but later in life I think they moved to Salt Spring Island....probably for retirement.
I know that Annie died before my grandmother, her sister, so probably mid to late 1960s.
Annie was born Ann Maria Sewell in Birmingham in 1887, daughter of Thomas Sewell & Esther Crowder. She married George Eaton in 1912 in Birmingham & they emigrated to Canada 21.2.1913 aboard the Hesperian, landing in Halifax Nova Scotia. I know they had a son Kenneth, born in Canada & he was married twice & had 2 sons, one of whom was called Barry.
Please can anyone spot them on any of the available censuses, or anywhere else for that matter. I,m crosseyed with looking.

Sorry Reggie, I have no idea.
All I know is there´s a photo in my gran´s album which shows a sailing dinghy & is labelled "Annie´s boat, Salt Spring Island"
No date & no other info.

Sorry, have no recollection of that, but my memory isn´t what it was.
Thank you anyway for taking the trouble to remind me.
