One last wrinkle - here's some stranger
1911 Census of Canada
Home / 1911 / Ontario / Haldimand / 7 Cayuga North / page 5
30 57 Stevens Thedore M Head M Feb 1873 38
http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1911/pdf/e001989515.pdf
[addy=Lot 5 Conc 3]

All our mob were in town, and we never had to deal with Ontario farm addy's.
Ontario was surveyed township by township. Each township was split into concession strips, and each strip split into lots.
A typical full-sized lot is 200 acres, and measures 20 x 100 chains (80 chains=1mile).
To locate an addy, we need a concession map, and there's one for S Ont at:
http://digital.library.mcgill.ca/Countyatlas/SearchMapframes.php
Be aware as you drill down that the top edge isn't necessarily true north.
This township is a bit of a mess - maybe the surveys on the Niagara peninsular were a bit rushed to stop the Americans from pushing north.
Anyways, the lot's in the bottom right of the map, labelled "Lewis Stevens".
(As you drill down, under the maps there's an option to generate a list of people - I had to use this here to check I'd found Lot 5.)

MrsB - for free Canadian stuff, try:
https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list#page=1®ion=CANADA
e.g., https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/KS8Z-8L1
and http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/index-e.html
In particular, drilling down at the latter URL to:
http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/022-911.009-e.html

Of course, it helps immeasurably to see where and how names are spelled.
For the 1891 look up at LAC:
http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1891/pdf/30953_148156-00218.pdf
There's a couple of other Stevens (maybe uncles to your guy) on the page - one h/h straddles the image boundary, so to get the previous image, just edit the URL to:
http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1891/pdf/30953_148156-00217.pdf

A lookup of Stevens in Dunnville 1871/81 at LAC gets:
1881
Name: Stevens, M. A
Sex: M
Age: 41
Place of Birth: U. S (USA)
Religion: Presb
Ethnic Origin: Irish
Occupation: Harness Maker

(although they don't tell you the URL explicitly)


For 1901-1911 (and 1852) use the AG link. NB AG's is a difft transcription from Ancestry's.
There're 2 ways to do a lookup at AG.
E.g., 1901 click on Ontario, then Haldimand & Monck, then S, then Stevens
No Arthur, but his dad is there, & his sis Madellia in 1881, now Della.

1901 Census of Canada Page Information
District: ON HALDIMAND & MONCK (#67)
Subdistrict: Dunnville (Village) G-1 Page 11

21 116 Stevens Mary F Wife M Jul 11 1840 60
22 116 Stevens Della F Daughter S Mar 30 1872 29

You can view the Schedule 1 image on a split screen, and save it
Alt, click on the G-1 link in the header - sometimes you'll find the pdf link there to
http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1901/z/z002/z000066193.pdf
(here we'll just save the "proof" image - unfortunately neither AM nor Mary say when they immigrated)
In the footer, there's a link:
Open Archives listings for Dunnville (Village) G-1 (to access schedule 2 pages to find addresses)
take this link - we want the 3rd page of Sched 2's
http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1901/z/z002/z000066181.pdf
[Page11 Line20 addy=Maple St (in Dunnville ON)]

So Art's left Dunnville - start again at Ontario, and look up Stevens, then filter by Art - no likely hits, so back up and filter by ger and we find Choccy's hit
1901 Census of Canada Page Information
District: ON ELGIN (West/Ouest) (#58)
Subdistrict: Ridgetown (Town/Ville) F-1 Page 1
Then again the F-1 click to

1901S2 http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1901/z/z002/z000059746.pdf
[P1L1 addy=Main & Brad St - I can't see Brad St on a modern map, but Main runs 1 mile out of town in each direction]
Maybe Art's dead, hence the adoption.

Thats defo my Grandfather Choccy. He was a harness maker. Thanks again.

His Mother Mary Clark Stevens/Orme died in 1898 hence the adopted son thing in 1901.
His Fathers name is a mystery as not sure if he was Arthur Albert or Albert Arthur. Unsure when his Father died too.

It's lovely to find out the familys name that took him in. I havent seen the Brien name in the Family ho hum....

Poor ol' Millage may have had a bad start in life but he did make good of himself as an adult.
He was a very respected man in his community and province.

Thanks again :-)
