|I am just beginning my family tree search. Most of my family are in Canada right now, however my ancestors came from England and Ireland.Some of our family names included|
Gerald Garfield Rowden (born May 15, 1908, died June 03 1983) who married Beatrice Myrtle Irwin (born July 01 1908, died April 24 1981) in Port Hope Ontario Canada Jan 15, 1927they were my grandparents
Clarence Percival Rowden (born Aug 24, 1885, died Dec 5, 1951) married Ellen Hardcastle Martin (born 1882, died 1967) my great grandparents from Canada
John Thomas Irwin (born dec 24,1873 died 1957) married Hannah Florence Sherwin (born March 5, 1875, died 1954) I believe John Irwin came from Ireland.Hannah Sherwin was sent from her family in England when she was a child.She was a "Bernarder" child sent to an orphanage in Canada along with her sister Alice.The remainder or her family stayed in England and she never heard from them again.I have no information on our English roots and am interested to learn them.
John Henry Rowden (born 1863 died 1921) married Sarah A Brown (born 1857, died 1915)
