FAIRTHORN Report 10 Oct 2011 01:12

It is possible there are children from the THOMAS/TURNBULL marriage.
She could have gone back to Kent/mother Helena to give birth.

There are children born in Dartford Kent BUT there must be another Thomas/Turnbull marriage cos the births are ranged between 1947 to 1959 but cos of the names ( a single first, then 3, then just 2 ) it is possible the 2 names ones from 1957 may be a possible.

EDIT
TELEPHONE contact sent to Michelle
Violet's sister Lillian's daughter
She may have photos etc & be able to say if Violet had further children with William E Thomas

I copied & posted the above direct to Michelle ( opened ) & I received no response either ? despite having her respond direct 3 times before ?


It seems the reason for the late baptism, is they baptised her new-born brother John at the same time.

As advised, Michelle to get it truly solved, is to buy the marriage certificate & see if it states her dad is John Archibald Turnbull & her DOB 19/11/1920

PLUS buy the death certificate, as this sadly, may be handy for genetic medical history.


Perhaps she & her mother are so sad that Violet died so young ?

I'm surprised that Michelle hasn't responded. I sent her a pm yesterday which was opened yesterday.

Michelle, I thought you'd be fascinated by the fact that Violer Maud was born in Gourock, Scotland but not baptised until 5 years later in Montreal, Canada. She lived in Montreal for quite a few years returning to England with mother & siblings. Did father die or was it a marriage break-up?

I really think you should contact Gordon who has her in his tree with place of birth as Gourock. Sounds like he might know more.

Can't find a baptism of Hilda Dorothy in Montreal. Curious that Violet was born in Scotland but baptised in Montreal 5 years later!

Found a death for John in 1992 so all of Violet's siblings are now dead.

This is the other child who arrived with her mother. Both mother's & father's names are the same as well as father's address in Montreal.

That explains why I couldn't find the marriage or them in 1911.

She moved around a bit but they eventually came back to Kent.

Ah yes, here's Violet's arrival in Canada with her mother. Didn't see it at first because there's no passenger list as such. So she wasn't born in Canada just baptised here!

Canada, Ocean Arrivals (Form 30A), 1919-1924

Birth Place: Lomoth

Oh shoot! I sent a pm to Michelle telling her that Violet was born in Canada!

Following on from the birth that Rose found, this looks like John Archibald's arrival in Canada:

Canada, Ocean Arrivals (Form 30A), 1919-1924
about John Turnbull Name: John Turnbull
Gender: Male
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1893
Birth Place: Greenwich, England
Age: 30
Date of Arrival: Jul 1923
Port of Arrival: Quebec
Port of Departure: Gourock, Scotland
Ship Name: Montlaurier

Original says he's a coppersmith and is heading to his aunt Mrs. R. Turnbull, 269 Niagara St., Toronto, Ontario.

Nearest relative at home was wife Mrs. Helen Turnbull, 105 Albert Rd., Gourock.

But, but, but Violet was born 1920! Born in Scotland, maybe but baptised in Montreal? But then can't find her arrival in Canada?

That date of birth for Lilian matches the death info for Lillian Georgina Byford that I mentioned earlier.

Sorry, Rose, hadn't realized you'd already posted that birth. My mistake.

As for place of birth on that passenger list, my mistake again. Of course you're correct it's Plumstead not Hampstead.
