If anyone has access to Scotlands People would you mind seeing if there is a Marriage for Henry Buckley and Elizabeth Mastin?
They had a child c1883. She was a home child that ended up in Canada shipped out in 1895 aged 12. Ada Buckley.

Many thanks for your time

This is an extract from a tree at Ancestry. Might be worth looking into?

Death: 11/18/1963 (18 Nov 1963) - Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

No birth coming up in Suffolk.


Potty Report 18 Aug 2013 14:34

The Ancestry trees have her as Ada Edith


Potty Report 18 Aug 2013 14:44

The trees on Ancestry have conflicting information. One of them has this census attached:

1891 England Census

Estimated Birth Year:abt 1840
Where born:Walworth, London, England
Civil Parish:St Paul Deptford
Ecclesiastical parish:All Saints
Thomas A Dunmore 21

Ada Buckley 9 b Brockley. London
Walter Marstin 34
Mary A Marstin 28
John F Marstin 8
Eliza J Marstin 5
Alice A Marstin 4

All births coming up for Ada are in the North, mainly Lancashire and Yorkshire.

Thanks Gins....oops! Potty :-D

I'm actually working with my sister in law in Canada and she's at work.
I keep waiting for her to reply lol
She said that the 1907 Marriage was actually 1901 and another Ancestry member has put a correction...
Ada was her Fathers Mother...


Potty Report 18 Aug 2013 15:34

I wonder if this family is any connection:

Potty Report 18 Aug 2013 15:37

Eliza's maiden name was also Marstin (she married John Thomas Marstin). so she must be Elizabeth's sister.

Potty! how did you find that???? Ive been going POTTY here looking for that lol
Oh well done that looks very promising and could account as to why Ada got sent away...Mum died maybe as she was getting on abit.
Thank you :-)


Potty Report 18 Aug 2013 15:48

I "feel" that Henry Buckley" and Henry Harling are the same person but can't prove it!


MrsBucketBouquet Report 18 Aug 2013 16:04

I think so too...but.....would you have 2 sisters one Elizabeth and the other Eliza?
Looks good though.

Hang on here....Potty
Do you mean Eliza was a Marstin and married a Marstin? Nah lol

edit...Sorry Potty yet again. I have worked out what you mean now (senior moment) :-S

Maybe John Thomas was Elizabeths Sister?

I need to rest my brain... x

OH!!! safc Im excited now! going to mail sister in law right now....WELL DONE everyone :-D

Still doesn't give us a clue as to why Ada was shipped away. :-|


Potty Report 18 Aug 2013 17:23

It was looking for my lot that drove me Potty!

The PR of Henry & Elizabeth's marriage is on Ancestry. His occupation - blacksmith; father: Richard - waterman.

Henry Harling in the 1881 is a labourer in brickfields - so probably too different men. Maybe Elizabeth lived with Henry Harling as his wife and reverted to Buckley when he left/died?


Potty Report 18 Aug 2013 17:43

Still no luck with Ada's birth.

Elizabeth and Eliza were sisters - same father's name and occupation on marriages and if you trace the census back, they are together

Look what I found...all by myself lol

Deaths Jun 1890

Looks like you were right Potty.
If Elizabeth found herself with no man it's no wonder she sent Ada away!

Thank you thank you :-)
