I am not sure if this is any relation. My dads grandfather father was James Darbyshire - born in Leigh Lancashire date unknown. He married a Mary Ann Gaskell. My dads father wasJohn Thomas Darbyshire..Born January 04 1897 , MarriedEva Alberta Cordy on May 24 1919 and he died November 29 1953 in Hespeler Ontario Canada. When James and John came to Canada (prior to 1919) they changed their last name to Derbyshire. Hope this helps both of us.
