I know! Something doesn't add up here. Violet was born 1920 but we have her mother arriving in Canada 1924. Perhaps she was just returning after a visit to England?

Margee,

That's the birth I posted earlier. Does the passenger list state Plumstead and not Hampstead?

Rose

Margee Report 8 Oct 2011 17:18

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.

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

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?

Margee

Margee Report 8 Oct 2011 19:46

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!

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.

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.
