Trying to find out what happened to my great-uncleThomas Durow, son of Uriah Durow and Ann Hampson of Mapperley in Derbyshire, and brother of Joseph, Charles, Arthur, Uriah, Maria (Marie), Annie, Elizabeth and Ellen. He appears on the 1891 census aged 10 months so probably born 1890.
There is an official record of him arriving in Canada (Quebec) on the Melitta in 1921. Thereafter there is nothing. He didn't contact any of his immediate family as far as we know.
There is a marriage record showing him marrying Ada Watchorn (born 1893) in 1914 and he is then shown as a soldier. Later, prior to him leaving for Canada he was (we think) a miner.
According to other 3rd party genealogy searches Ada may have given birth to a baby soon after Thomas left for Canada and she may have remarried some years later. However, this information was gathered on another site by a searcher on Ada's side and seems a little muddled so may not be accurate. Was Ada supposed to follow Thomas after the aby was born? Did she decide not to or did he disappear and not contact her? Did he die in Canada and no-one knew how to contact this family in England?
Any information would be useful. I am the grand-daughter of Ellen Smith, nee Durow, Thomas's sister, who was born in 1884. My cousin has done a family tree of the Durows going back to the 1700s but Thomas is a mystery that we would like to unravel.
I am working on the family history of my Uncle, Horace Brabant. His parents were Angus Brabant & Josephine Deschambeault. I have a couple of pictures one of which is very old and I am thinking it is of Hycanthe and family. It is a formal family portrait. If anyone out there is working on this family and would like to see if it belongs to their family please let me know.
I am looking for information on my grandmother Florence Wescombe nee Taylor born in Cattistock Dorset UK around 1882. She married Leonard Wescombe in 1907 at Maiden Newton Dorset but he was not the father of my mother.
Florence gave birth to my mother in September 1919 and had her adopted about 3 years later. I cannot find any trace of her or her family in the UK. I believe her sister Gertrude emigrated to Canada and wonder if she went to Canada as well. I would be grateful for any information anyone can give me.
