Beatrice Reynard?

Mrs Beatrice Brough
Location: Northumberland, Ontario - Wooler
Occupation: House Keeper
Electoral District: Northumberland
Year: 1949

As the names are arranged alpabetically, it isn't possible to see who she is living with. Certainly not a Brough


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 31 Jan 2013 10:02

Another entry for 1945 for 102 Eileen Avenue

E Chem Brough
Location: York, Ontario
Occupation: Eng., Eileen Ave
Electoral District: York West
Year: 1949

This probably ought to have been entered as
E Brough
Chem Engineer
Eileen Ave
(with Mrs Vera Brough)

Tracking through Ernest Brough (assuming it is the correct famly) he was probably Tom's son

Ernest Brough
Location: York, Ontario - 40 Leggett Ave
Occupation: Chemical Engineer
Electoral District: York West
Year: 1953
With Mrs Vera Brough

Same details in 1957, 1963, 1965.

Ernest Brough
Location: Etobicoke; Toronto, Ontario
Occupation: Chemical Engineer
Electoral District: Etobicoke - still 40 Leggett Ave although now in different district
Year: 1968
Still with Vera

Not sure if this is the correct family, or not - there are 2 to choose from

Canada, Voters Lists, 1935-1980

Thomas Brough
Location: York, Ontario
Occupation: Plumber
Electoral District: York West
Year: 1935

With Mrs Tom Brough, housewife,
Address 102 Eileen Avenue

Same entry for 1940

In 1945 still at Eileen Avenue
Thomas Brough, Plumber
Mrs Thomas Brough
Ernest Brough, Engineer
Mrs Ernest Brough
Miss Ethel Brough, Secretary

Tom Brough enlisted for WW1 in Canada. Gives birth 27 Feb. 1887, Leeds, Yorkshire. Wife Ada Brough. 22 Pritchard Ave., Toronto, Ontario.


Mark Report 30 Jan 2013 18:00

I thought that may be the case Margee


MargaretM Report 30 Jan 2013 17:59

The 1911 census is the latest one available in Canada.

Please if i could ask for help.......
Tom Brough 1887 married Ada Dobson 1890 in 1912 York, Ontario, Canada . Tom's brother Ernest also appears to of married Beatrice Reynard 1912 York, Ontario, Canada . I would be interested to know if any later census details show family. Thanks
