I've only been at this since Oct 10. I'm the grandson of Jane Anne (Annie) Weatherson (nee Silk) b. 29 Jul 1906 Cape Town, Soth Africa married to James Frederick Silkb. 1 may 1909 Chillingham, Northumberland. I have a family tree started in ancestry.ca under the name Silk. Jane Anne's father is John Weatherson b. 1 May 1875 Rothbury, Northumberland married to Jane Ann Pile, and his William Weatherson b.19 Apr 1843 Thropton, Northumberland married to Jane Heron.
I have a record showing the arrival date of the SS Cairnavon in England (Newcastle-on-Tyne - 19 Nov 1948). They were going back to Howick Pasture House, Alnwick, Northumberland from Montreal Canada.
Weatherson, George W - Age 45 Weatherson, Jean Irving - 39 Weatherson, Ruth Irene - 6 (is probably still living) born in 1942) Weatherson, Ester Anne - 4 (is probably still living) born in 1944) Weatherson, Jane Ann - 71 (this is my great grandmother Jane Ann Pile - born in 1876, at time of this voyage in 1948 she is 71.
My father has told me his family once had a lease on the estate of Lord Grey.
Anyway...do have any information on my Weathersons?
