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

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

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.

Quarter of Registration Apr-May-Jun

Age at Death: 40

-----------------------------------------

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 ?

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

How about contacting Gordon on this site who has Violet in his tree?

Michelle

Michelle Report 10 Oct 2011 12:57

Wow I am just looking at all the threads.... you have been doing lots of research for me.. Im sorry I havent sounded so appreciative.. So Violet was born in Scotland then moved to Canada and then came back again is that right??

Margee

Margee Report 10 Oct 2011 13:06

Yes, that's right, Michelle, and very curious. Why was she baptised in Montreal and why 5 years after her birth? And why did mother & children return to England? Had father died in Montreal? I can't find his death. Now Gordon has her birth in Gourock, Scotland and I wonder if he knows more?

John Archibald looks to be on the electoral register in 1952 so he made it back to the UK.

This death fits:

Deaths Mar 1953
TURNBULL John A 60 Lambeth 5c 1693

Do contact Gordon.

I really think Violet had a son with William E Thomas in 195. Gordon also has this name in his tree.

If you check Gordon, he has BOTH children Wendy & William
( there is a William XXXXXXX odds are, this is William Thomas cos sadly remember they lost their mum in 1961 )

BUT can not see the connection with Gordon Born 1949, unless it is through who brought William & Wendy "up".


Still,
we can waiting until Michelle's cousin Sheryl answers her letter.

So happily Michelle can say to her Mum she has found a Half-brother & sister !!!
Not a bad 60th birthday present !
