I have been trying to find George Frederick Bridger on the 1911 Census without any luck. Can anyone help?

He was born in 1860 in Bramshott and his wife was Elizabeth (nee Hellier). They should have had at least two children still living with them, they were Frederick Wallis (Walter) Bridger born 1903 Bramshott and Robert Arthur Bridger born 1906 Newtown, Liphook.

I know that Frederick Wallis (Walter) Bridger was alive in 1929 as I have a copy of is marriage certificate - it states his father as deceased at the time of his marriage.

Sorry Bramshott, Hampshire, England. Or it could have been in Liphook, Hamphshire, England.

brummiejan
yes correct family

Kempinathermalhat
yes correct family

George death details could be the right one.

Glitterbaby - we were sort of but we were looking for Frederick Wallis (Walter) Bridger.

Interesting about Lily Bridger - from memory last info I have on her is in the 1901 census - haven't been able to find anything else.

Thanks for all your help.

Hi Angela. Have you noticed my posts above for the family in Canada in 1911?

Angela

Angela Report 2 Apr 2013 16:38

Yes Glitterbaby - sorry if i have repeated stuff i am a bit new to all of this.

Alviegal - yes saw the posts for family in Canada - not sure if it is mine or not , some of the names listed I am not aware of.

I do know that Frederick George (down as George on one of the census) born 1887/1888 was in the UK as he married in a place called Sheet, Nr Petersfield, Hampshire UK in 1923. He was my Grandfather. I have a copy of his marriage certificate and the original death certificate, he died in 1946 in a place called Fareham, Hampshire, England. My father was born in 1928 in a place called Steep, Nr Petersfield, Hampshire, UK.

Now have a look at this. From http://www.saskhomesteads.com/results.asp

1251195 Bridger, George Frederick SE 36 24 23 W2 Personal Representative of Bridger, Edwin William.


If you go to this link http://sab.minisisinc.com/sabmin/scripts/mwimain.dll/147/1/0?SEARCH&ERRMSG=[SAB_WEB]No_Homestead.htm
you can actually read the documents. If I have read them correctly, Edwin is George's son.

Perhaps this is why they went to Canada?
