Trying to track a Samuel Otto Hansen Birth april/june 1880 in Cardiff, Glamorgan, Wales
His father was Jorgen (George) Otto Hansen Birth abt 1837 in Draby FREDERIKSSUND
Mother was a Mary Jane Congdon Birth Dec 1841 in St John, Plymouth, Devon

No trace of him in the UK after 16 yo
May have emigrated possibly in 1905 to either the USA or Canada aged 29
although he may have gone sooner
A lot to ask I know, but any help welcomed

http://sacredmission.org/about-ssm/

SSM had its beginnings in December 1890, when Father Herbert Hamilton Kelly began training ‘ordinary’ young men for the ‘Corean Missionary Brotherhood’ at Vassall Road Kennington in the United Kingdom. The Principles, drafted for the Holy Week retreat in 1892, expressed Kelly’s ideal of God-centred dedication. At Michaelmas in the same year the name changed to the Society of the Sacred Mission. Kelly drafted the Constitution in 1893, and SSM was inaugurated on 9 May.

SSM relocated to Mildenhall in 1897 and to Kelham Hall in Nottinghamshire in 1903, which became head office and theological college until its closure in 1973. The college’s chapel at Kelham was famous for two things: its concrete dome (built in 1928), the second largest in England, and the Jagger Rood. Since inception, SSM has trained around 3500 men for the priesthood. Read More

Today, SSM’s three provinces are autonomous, but closely linked; and members share prayer and fellowship in a variety of educational, pastoral and community activities. The object of SSM is expressed in its motto: Ad gloriam dei in eius voluntate (To the glory of God in the doing of his will).

SSM membership comprises members who have been professed, who make promises of poverty, chastity, and obedience; other members who join fully in the life of SSM, but do not make those promises and may be married; and others who associate with SSM and become part of its life and work.

Provincials are—Australian Province: Christopher Myers (Visitor Philip Freier, Archbishop of Melbourne); European Province: Colin Griffiths (Visitor John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford); Southern African Province Michael Lapsley (Visitor Thabo Makgoba, Archbishop of Cape Town).
