Well done AnotherCanuck,

This is the way to go and the site does it in English as well as French. You should call yourself Mapleleaf - I like it - eh!

Going into that information now to have a look.

Katheleen Francis Ireson
Birth Place: London, England
Age: 19
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1900
Father Name: George Issac Ireson
Mother Name: Mary Blumfield Ireson
Spouse Name: John Thomas Elliott
Spouse's Age: 21
Spouse Birth Year: abt 1898
Spouse Birth Place: Baggiltin Flint
Spouse Father Name: Was Barnards's Home Boy, Does Not Know Or Cannot Get Father Or Mother's Name Elliott
Spouse Mother Name: Elliott
Marriage Date: 1 Oct 1919
Marriage County or District: Peterborough

Added: If this is the right marriage I would be very tempted to order that 1902 birth certificate - he has given age as 21 (ie born 1898, not 1896) but possibly had to lie in order to get married. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong but in England you had to have parential consent to marry under 21, and in his case this would be impossible to get. Did the same apply in Canada - I'm not sure?

Must be worth the £9.25 to get the cert from GRO - even iff to find his parents and eliminate him.


Flip Report 3 Mar 2013 11:52

I'm assuming that's your tree on Ancestry, showing his death in 1980 and he had been married to Kathleen Francis Ireson - although it gives no date for the marriage.

According to the tree Kathleen was born in 1900 in London.


patchem Report 3 Mar 2013 11:44

Where did the information about his birth year of 1896 come from?
Did he want to appear older than his wife?


Flip Report 3 Mar 2013 11:15

The younger child Violet Olive Howard was also shipped off to Canada with Barnados -

Violet Olive Howard
Gender: Female
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1909
Birth Place: London, England
Age: 13
Date of Arrival: 19 May 1922
Port of Arrival: Quebec
Port of Departure: Southampton, England
Ship Name: Melita

Names her mother as Gertrude Howard, address unknown. But it makes it look very likely that this is the right John Thomas.

In what year did your grandparents marry?

Can someone check out the 1911 census on FMP - I'm getting a hit for John Thomas Elliott born *flint* living in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire but I can't find it on Ancestry.

It must be the one found by Patchem as according to GR he was born Flints. Bagillt

Flip Report 3 Mar 2013 06:05

Have you checked the image for the Corinthian - John Thos Elliott was listed as 9 years old, which is rather a large discrepancy? Enid Elliott is also listed a 9.


Unknown Report 3 Mar 2013 03:21

You people are wonderful. Im not positive on the day or month of his birthday but i am about the year 1896. I have requested info from barnardo files I am hoping for something from there. Im not totally sure of his birthplace just he put on the marriage certificate to my grandmother that his birthplace was bagillt flintshire wales. So i dont know if he even knew where he was born. Searching through census and births there is nothing connecting. It is possible Enid Elliott was his sister they both came on the same ship with the same last name,but then again i have no proof, hopefully something will come about so i can keep going. You people are ever so helpful and i am truly grateful. :-) Debbie


Kay???? Report 2 Mar 2013 20:26

There is another birth,
John Evrad Elliott,,,,March 1897 reg------Llanfyllin,

There is only the Crickhowell and the one above that fits with his birth as,,31/10 1896 ......born in Wales as put by Debbie,maybe he wasnt born there?so was nearly 15 when he landed in CA..

Debbie can apply for his details...


patchem Report 2 Mar 2013 19:53

Sorry, cannot see the one you mean, was it FMP? Ancestry has:
1901 Wales Census

The 1911 family may have broken down, but would they claim 11 children living and 11 children showing in 1911 but not John?


Kay???? Report 2 Mar 2013 19:19

The birth of John Elliott,


Elliott John,,,registered as,,,,,,,Criickhowell, (Monmouthshire.

1901 Census-----A John Elliott 1896 is showing in ,,,Llansantffrend ?Monmouthshire about 10 miles away.,,,,,aged 5, needs a view.

Only 1 birth for 1904,

Enid Violet Elliott ----Cardiff....

Perhaps during 1911 the family broke down?


patchem Report 2 Mar 2013 16:44

Is the assumption that Enid might be his sister just because they are travelling on the same ship?
The family that I found in 1911 has all children accounted for.
If John Thomas (from the ship) was only registered as John, then Enid Violet(on the ship) may be only registered as Enid?


Unknown Report 2 Mar 2013 15:06




Kay???? Report 2 Mar 2013 08:16

He maybe under just John Elliott.

It maybe possible to narrow a birth entry if Debbie gives his birth month,she can then hopefully apply for a BC.

UK Barnardos will hold entry and release file information on him.


Enid Violet Elliott was also on the same ship.

John Thomas Elliott birth given as,,,,,,,,31/10/1896.only a John Elliott registered Oct/Dec 1896-----BC needed.
